Have your mechanics checked the static timing of the crank and 2 camshaft pulleys? Which begs the question when was the timing belt last changed or did someone replace the water pump without changing the timing belt and all the idlers? Have your mechanics checked fuel pressure / fuel flow rate? Are there any air leaks / vac. leaks behind the mass air flow sensor? That's just for starters. Don

Why is my 1998 Jeep Wrangler idleing high and whistleling at operating temperature we have checked vacuum hoses by plugging them off at each end and replaced clutch pressure plate throw out bearing?

High idle rpms and whistling is generally (usually) caused by a vacuum leak. Since you have checked the most obvious vacuum hoses, the leak could be where the intake manifold bolts to the head. ESPECIALLY so if the exhaust system/intake manifold has ever been replaced/reinstalled since it is not easy to get the intake manifold properly repositioned so it is leak free.

My previa is overheating after 30mins of driving and there are no leaks and the thermostat wasjust replaced can you give me some advise on what it could be?

just to state obvious first check fluid levels (oil water etc). Does the cabin heater blow hot air? if not it could be vapor locked (after having the 'stat replaced system not bled properly) have your local garage drain and refill system. Have your water pump checked for the internal fins being worn or rusted away. Also get the head gasket checked as these are prone to going and the sooner they are fixed the less damage you should be looking at. hope this helps

Mechanic Training?

Auto mechanics currently have excellent prospects for employment. No matter how broadly gas prices may fluctuate, owning a vehicle will continue to be seen as an indispensable rite of passage for adults in our society. During past times, cars were simple enough that a substantial minority of motorists were able to perform many of their own repairs. Due to the sophisticated nature of modern cars, auto mechanics must undergo sophisticated training in order to understand the complex systems of modern vehicles. In order to achieve success in the world of auto repair, mechanics must be able to diagnose automotive problems accurately and quickly. Time is of the essence, as drivers without access to their vehicles are often in danger of experiencing severe problems. Mechanics must also develop the ability to quote repair prices to customers before commencing repairs. Inexperienced mechanics quote figures that are too low, causing quite a bit of embarassment. With modern, sophisticated automotive systems, many problems can only be solved through the use of electronic diagnostic tools. In modern developed nations, mechanics have a fundamental responsibility to maintain vehicles. In less developed nations, mechanics are only consulted when a vehicle shows obvious signs of dysfunction. Sadly, many modern automobile owners do not understand scheduled replacement for auto parts. Parts must be replaced according to a schedule in order to prevent more serious problems down the road. Since parts must be replaced before any obvious problems are visible to the owner, many owners simply won't understand the need for these expenses. Every year, auto repair becomes more difficult and sophisticated. Repairing vehicles now requires a solid understanding of computer and electronic systems. As a result of this trend, auto mechanic is rapidly falling out of favor as the preferred term for these professionals. Automotive technician is quickly becoming the preferred term. Mechanic training is usually a long, expensive process. Although some mechanics are able to establish their careers without formal training, these are unusual cases. For most aspiring mechanics, formal training is necessary for establishing a career. Online training courses now offer more flexibility than ever for would-be mechanics.
