Can a 3800 motor be replaced with a 3400 motor?
My temp gaugebmw 318 e46 rises for no reason can anyone help already replaced the thermo sensor?
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.

Asked in Head Gaskets and Valve Covers
How do you tell between a blow head gasket and a crack head?
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.

Asked in Nissan Altima
Why would the radiator fan continue to run after the engine stops after the thermostat was replaced on a 2002 Nissan Altima?
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.
97 Probe will start but when ingnition switch is released engine dies Have tried new ignition switch no improvement?
I have been having the exact opposite problem. I have no spark in the start position, but spark is there when I release the ignition. I also replaced the ignition switch. This is on a 2000 mustang GT. It will start and run, but only because I release the key with perfect timing to make it catch. I just pulled my starter relay and swapped it with one of the same Ford part number (fog lights in my case) This seemed to work, but it is so intermittent, it is hard to tell if I really fixed it. Please post if you get similar results. This is driving me crazy.

Asked in Ford Focus
Where is the ignition coil in 2001 focus?
Hi, The focus does not really have an ignition coil. It has a coil pack ( spark plugs ) but I think what you want is the coils in the starter. There are two coils the primary and secondary both are located in the starter itself. the coil back just trace back the wires. pretty sure it is on the left front of you engine.
