There can be two reasons for not getting a rpm signal... 1. PROBLEM W/ VEHICLE: The smog machine uses an inductive pickup system to track engine RPM signals. This system involves a non-intrusive method of gathering data. The smog technician rather then tapping directly into the ignition system uses a tool call the inductive pickup which is attached to the exterior of the number 1 spark plug wire over the wires insulation. The unit senses… Read More
You add fluid at the same place you check the fluid level. Takes a special funnel. If there is no place to check the level, then it is a sealed for life transmission.

You need to replace the bulbs. these bulbs are like a 2 or 3 way light bulb found in ones house lamp. one setting may be blown but the other still works
Oil mixing with water?* Water mixing with oil?* White smoke while driving?* Run engine to normal operating temperature Pull dipstick and let a drop fall on a hot engine part - water will sizzle and oil will smoke* *HEAD GASKET Engine heats too rapidly and water blow out of radiator or coolant recovery tank* Not Heat?* *Probably thermostat
i will tell you from experience.... once the ball joint goes out, the car will noy go forward or backward. it will not roll. my ball joint went out in a parking lot as i was parking and the minute it broke, the car would not move anywhere. we changed it in the parking lot. hope this helps
Remove one at a time to determine which each controls
Freon (R12) has not been installed in any vehicle since 1995.
Yes, this sounds like coolant from a cooling system that has been neglected and not flushed and changed regularly. Have the leak fixed, a new thermostat installed, a fresh mix of 50/50 coolant installed, and bleed the system.
no its out side of the intake
To my understanding, the answer is "yes" according to http://www.compcams.com/Technical/Instructions/Files/151.pdf. Comp state guideplates must be used with these type rockers.
I am trying to figure out the same thing. It's def tough. Well if you have a decent down payment,,say $1500 or $2000 , the finance company may take the value of the car as collateral against the loan. They will place a lien on it anyway until it is paid off. And if something happens to it before the loan is paid, the insurance company will pay off the loan,,,not send you the money.
Occasionally, new brakes will squeak or squeal for a short time as the pads get "bedded in." But in general, brake pads that are properly installed should not squeak, especially with new rotors installed at the same time. Usually, one of the following components is used to PREVENT squeaky brakes: --brake pads with built-in shims to prevent vibration that causes squeaking. --brake pads with external shims (usually thin sheets of metal) between the pad and… Read More
lots of reasons this could happen, more than likely a speed sensor has went out
I think you dont have to drive the car right now because the cooling system might be the probleme causing the engine to be overheated and slow down the combution , i think u should check the radiator
your radiator clogged up.cheaper to get a new radiator. nothing to do with the radiator cap.
if you are speaking of the mast (the actual part you see on the fender) it just unscrews
The gauges as in the EQ sliders? They adjust the different frequencies for the sound, for example treble, bass, mid

look in your service manual for blower motor resisters. they are typicaly what goes bad and stops the blower motor from running. i dont know where they are in your vehicle
P0446 Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction
Designations like quarter-ton, half-ton and three-quarter ton trucks, are just designations to give a consumer the general size of the truck. Some half-ton trucks are really rated to carry more than 1 ton. For instance a late model Toyota Tacoma is a quarter-ton truck, but depending on the configuration it is rated to carry between 1300 and 1600 pounds in its bed. Each individual truck will have a rating given to it by the manufacturer… Read More
is that 'rest' or 'reset'? If by 'rest' you mean to give the AC unit a rest, that's a good idea, all roadmasters from 92-96, when you start the car, if the ventilation was switched on last time, the AC comes on by default, even if you had the heat on to 75f say. This sucks the gas. When you start your roadmaster, either hit the 'econ' button quickly to turn the ac off, or… Read More
Check for fuel and spark
It originally came with Freon (R12). Unless it has been converted then it will still contains R12. I suggest you have it converted to R134a, as Freon is so very expensive and hard to find.

Did you have a CV joint go by any chance? My halfshaft came apart recently and punched about a 2" wide hole in my transmission. Not wanting to buy a new transmission I managed to patch it with a piece of sheet metal and some JB weld. Hope this helps.
You have to turn on your car for the radio to work
Exactly as you state. Standing in front of the car looking at the engine. Left to right on the front near the radiator 1-3-5 on the rear side next to the firewall left to right 2-4-6.
p0405 EGR position sensor input below the minimum acceptable voltage range (shorted low) * Clean or replace the EGR * Replace the DPFE * Clean the throttle body * Clean the MAF - use electrical contact cleaner and be gentle
Most likely the ac belt is loose and needs to be tightened or replaced.
Usually 1" or 1 1/16". A deep well thin wall socket will work on most vehicles. Lisle Tool # 13250 or KD Tool # 3458 will get it done on GM Vehicles
Most newer cars and light trucks have the fuel pump mounted inside the gas tank.It is not abnormal to hear the pump run,but you should have to listen closely to hear it. If it is really noisy it could be getting to close to failing.In which case the vehicle will quit.
You have a blown head gasket. Stop driving the car or you will do serious damage to this engine. The heads will have to be removed, checked for warp-age & cracks, and new head gaskets installed.
If the locks have not been changed, 1 key should operate all locks on the vehicle.
any any one positive or negative has to be grounded to reduce wire length , normally -ve is chosen as ground any any one positive or negative has to be grounded to reduce wire length , normally -ve is chosen as ground
U gotta use that "special foldable tool" from the wheel change tool box and stick it into that little tiny hole just underthe rear doors. It should slip into a tube, and than u should be able to lower the spare from it's location. whenever u r putting it back, make sure u tighten that mechanism up really well, not to lose it.:)
If the compressor will not come on at all, it is not because the system needs charging. Check for a blown fuse, disconnected wire at the compressor, or a defective compressor clutch.
Check the fan, it could be worn out. If that's not the problem you could have a plugged evaporator coil. If dust builds up on the evaporator air can't get through. There is a possibility that your vehicle has a cabin air filter. If so, make sure it's clean before you go to the expense of a new blower motor or having your AC system cleaned out.
Listed in your owner's manual and under the hood on a placard.
There is a short somewhere in the circuit.
#1 cyl. is usually the right front (as you're sitting in the driver's seat)

To fix an engine light code of 133 on a 1996 Ford Bronco with a 351 engine, the oxygen sensors need to be replaced. There are two oxygen sensors on this vehicle. One is on the driver's side and the other is on the passenger side of the exhaust or catalytic converter.
Where is the heater core on a 1998 crown under the middle of the dash, close to the fire wall, inside a odd shape box that's part of the heating & cooling system. It looks like a little radiator with two heating lines, it just pop's out and right back in. The hard part about this is going to be taking apart the dashboard. Also you have to drain the coolent.
83xbrThe answer is that you can't adjust the idle speed on any car since the 80s, because the Feds mandated a design that allows only automotive shops to do that. If you need to increase your idle speed, you can cheat by finding the throttle cable linkage at the carb or throttle body. There should be a flat piece of metal to which the throttle cable is attached. The metal is hinged and spring loaded… Read More
I think the Town and Country comes only with the 3.8L V6 engine but you need to be more specific about your engine when asking questions. Look for the top hose coming out of your radiator. Follow this to where it connects to the engine. Your thermostat is normally located at that junction point and the temperature sensor is normally on the engine side of that connection. Look for a wire connecting in that vicinity… Read More
More than likely the problem is with the climate control unit. Go to a salvage lot, get a replacement unit there (it will not be expensive) and replace the one in your car. I think you can simply pull the trim piece from around the climate control unit and then the unit has 4 screws holding it in place.
The cam position sensor is located at one end of the cam. since you have a V6, you will have two of them - one on each side of the V. I would look at the front of the engine at the two heads. There will be a circular end piece with a wire attached to it. That is the CPS.
Low pressure port - Larger hose from air compressor
the fastest way to tell is if the center intake bolts are not there. the vortec heads that everyone wants for performance have no center intake bolts. See link below.
It is important to know the fuse box location of a car. IN a 1983 Riviera the fuse box is located under the steering wheel column on the drive side dash.
P1776 is a transmission fault code. It is for Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in Low Reverse Position. Solenoid packs were a problem that would set that code in these model cars, but it could be a valve body also. I've replaced both for this code..depends on what set the code. I'd make a trip to a Dodge dealership for a proper diagnosis.
Usually, these things are made so you can't mess it up by "keying" the connection. I'll assume the connection is broken since your asking. the positive (+) output (usually red) is plugged to the Positive side of the automotive circuit and the Negative (-) output (usually black) is connected to chassis ground or the negative side of the automotive circuit. If its not clear what side is positive and negative, you should take it to… Read More
i think this could be the brake fluid level is low. thas what it is in my BMW
Not running on all cylinders? Bad spark plug or wire? Bad ignition coil (if C.O.P.)? Bad valve? etc.?
According to research by the Ethyl Corporation, MMT does not damage emission control systems as originally claimed by the EPA. However, environmental studies have shown that it has neurotoxic qualities, so most US and Canadian gasoline refiners do not use MMT.
in many peoples opinion, the best and easiest swap is Jeep 4.0 l. inline six. get a donor vehicle, that way you get a wire harness and engine computer
Look in your owner's manual, the dirver's door post, glove box, console, trunk, or some place else on this car. Somewhere on this vehicle you will find the correct PSI that your tires require.
The Trans Am GTA was not intruduced until 1987.

w What you do is open the door in pull the lock down.the lock is located right where the door close on the side where you open the door on the left hand side.
Nut you see after you remove the dust cover, in the middle of the drum, 30mm socket needed to remove
Any time the lines have been open!! Every year or two for safety.
Check oil pressure with a manual gauge. Could just be a bad oil sending unit or low oil presssure due to internal engine wear
Loose connecting wire? Blower motor or resistor pack going bad? For the record, I have the EXACT same problem with my 2003 Deville. When the blower motor fails to work, I can open and slam the front passenger door and it immediately starts working. Once it starts working, it will continue to work for as long as the car is running. If I turn off the car, it is a coin flip as to whether… Read More

You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration. A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: * The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is… Read More

why does the 1991 Lincoln towncars transmission not have overdrive?Instead of going into overdrive it seems to go into neutral.But if you take it out of overdrive and leave it in drive it never goes into neutral while I'm driving.
You most likely have a heater core that is leaking.
base 4cyl xe models with short bed and reg cab usually came without p/s, a/c, radio, or carpet; these were strippers for sure but great little runners
The fuel pump is located on the underside of the car attached to the frame rail between the drivers door and the rear wheel arch. When you turn on the ignition, you can hear the pump whine then click as it primes itself. No whine no pump.. At worst.. You may have to peplace the pump (plenty on Ebay) At best, it might be a relay and you have to troubleshoot..After consulting Haynes.. power to… Read More
Yes. The only difference besides the inside door panel is the 73-74 doesn't have the wing vent window like the 68 -72.
Major service should have been done at 105,000 miles. If you have not had this service done yet, then do it ASAP. Replace the cam belt and water pump. The is an INTERFERENCE engine. If the cam belt breaks your engine will have serious and expensive damage. If you have not already done this, then you are driving on borrowed time, and the engine is ready to explode when the belt breaks. Stop driving the… Read More
Answer If the battery is constantly dying quickly after charging then it is time for a new battery. Batteries wear out from repeated charging. All of them eventually do. The cells inside them just dont hold the charge anymore. Good luck.

The answer to your question cant be answered unless we know what year the vehicle is and if it is front rear drive or rear wheel drive If the number is anywhere it will be on the intake manifold.
On a 1993 Ford E-150 GASOLINE engine : Follow the spark plug wires to the distributor cap on top of the distributor On the 4.9 liter / 300 cubic inch inline six cylinder engine ( the distributor is on the DRIVERS SIDE of the engine ) On the V8 engines it is ( near the front of the engine on the top of the engine )
remove axle, separate joint inner or outter joint, clean, regrease, and put it back together with a new boot
The fuel pump shut off switch is on the passenger side, under the dash and glove box area, and very close to the floor, there will be a little box with a little button on the top of the box, push the button and that should be it. If that doesn't work you have another problem.
