Check your battery if its fully charged, if it is then you have a wiring problem (shorted wiring)
I have 2008 and had same problem the ignition had to be replaced was really fast less than an hour they did it.
The ignition coil is really easy to check. To check the ignition coil spin the engine over at around 250 RPM and watch for a spark in the tester window.
This swap is not recommended, and does not have any benefit. The 3800 engine is superior to the 3400 engine in every way. Replacement would be complicated and costly, you're better off to buy a vehicle that already has a 3400 in it, if that's really what you want.
Does that mean that you replaced the thermostat AND the sensor? If not, you really need to replace the thermostat. A sticking thermostat can cause temperature swings and potentially overheat the engine. BTW, BMW engines tend to have serious problems when they overheat. Don't let it overheat or you might be buying a new engine.
Is the engine running?! If so, you've got a rough idle. Could be bad ignition timing, or the ignition (suppression) wires are worn out. Or perhaps you've got a vacuum leak. If the car really shakes when you rev the engine, you mighta busted an engine mount.
Your question really makes no sense. Normally a timing chain will last the life of the engine as replaced when the engine is rebuilt.
yes because if it needs to be replaced it will either make the engine get to much air or not enough
ls9? it already comes with a 2jz gte/ge and that's a really good engine that can make 1000+ hp.or you could put a viper engine
Could be several reasons but we really need to know the year, make and model of your vehicle to help you.
I may be having the same problem. I replaced the battery. The interior lights, siren, horn, radio all work, but the car will not turn-over when the ignition is turned. I am really interested in how to unlock the vehicle.
In the center back of the engine top, he has three coils, one of each is for two cilinders, they are mounting on ignition module, they looks like unique assembly, but really you could replace separately if you prefer.
Yes, this really can happen. The transmission modulator ruptures and vacuum system system draws out trans fluid into engine oil thru vacuum pump into engine crankcase. Been there, done that. I replaced the modulator valve and dropped engine oil.
Not really enough information given - however - if they are badly out of adjustment you might be referring to the sound of the valves tapping - OR - you are hearing the noise of pre-ignition - perhaps the timing of the engine is off badly.
Pull really hard!
Unless it is listed somewhere, you really can't. Of course if it looks old it probably is, but even if it looks good, that is no guarantee that it is good. If this engine is an interference engine, then replace the belt if you are in doubt. Serious engine damage can occur if the belt breaks.
The ignition is live or hot and has power available. The term neutral does not really apply.
I really depends on what distributor you have on the engine. It could be a mechanical advance distributor or a vacuum advance distributor (stock). Google "the Somba" Volkswagen forum and all will be explained.
You can't without disassembling the engine. They will exhibit the same symptoms. And besides it really does not matter. Either way the heads must be removed and inspected and the gasket must be replaced. So it really does not matter which you have as the repair is the same other than if the head is cracked it must be replaced.
Yes. Will it be cheap? Probably not, unless your car is really old. Transmission and engine work are probably the most expensive modifications you can make to a car.
Assuming the fuel filter has also been replaced, a bad distributor cap and or wires and spark plugs could do that also.
i really dont knw
no not really
Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.
Depends on the engine, really.
