Timing Belts and Chains

Should the timing belt be changed when a 1994 Plymouth Colt has 150000 km?

It depends on the make of vehicle as to how often you should change the belt. If it has 150,000 and the belt has never been changed, well, it is long overdue. And if it is an interference type, and the belt breaks, then the valves get damaged, and the cost to repair goes up ten fold.

Why does a 1993 Plymouth Colt 4 cylinder engine idle rough when the air conditioner is on?

Hey Bill== An a/c takes about 20 horseower to turn the compressor and a 4 cylinder is developing about 30 horsepower idleing so it will slow down and be rough. Sometimes there is a solonoid to help compensate for this but it doesn't help a lot. GoodluckJoe Check your idle air control valve for lack of movement. When you turn on your A/C it puts a load on your engine, the IAC valve compensates for this by increasing the idle. If it's bad or is not being controlled correctly that rough idle you described will occure due to the load on the engine. Regards, Kevin

Where is the fuel pump relay located on a 1989 Plymouth colt hatchback?

Unfortunately, I can only tell you where the relay is located on a 1990 1.5 Plymouth colt hatchback. Perhaps they are the same.

As far as I know the relay that controls the fuel pump is in something the manual calls a MPI Control Relay (Multi-Point Injection). This relay seems to handle a couple of different things and I believe it is located almost directly behind the ash tray, below the radio, etc. On my car, if you take out the ash trash you can see a small golden can directly behind it, held in with one screw. That's the relay.

that's not the fuel pump relay. that is the fuel injection relay.

Where is the Electronic Control Module on a 1992 Plymouth Colt?

I do know that the 1990 colt ECM is on the passenger side, right next to where your right foot would be. You just have to take off a plastic panel to reach it. If memory serves it's held on by a couple of 10mm bolts. The 1992 may be different, I don't know.

How do you remove the front brake discs on a 1988 Plymouth Colt E 4 cylinder 1.5 liter carb non-abs brakes?

On an 88 Colt along with most cars u have to remove the tire. Then there should be a cap with a clip that holds it on remove the clip then the cap will come off. There will be a bolt that u will have to remove. After all this take off the calipers. There should be two bolts that hold them together. Once the calipers are off remove the plate. (If applicable) There might be one more bolt that holds the disc to the axle. Then the discs should slide right off.

Plymouth Colt

Plymouth 1992 colt vista 1.8 it has over 100000 miles it went from having battery tested on vehicle and replaced to not starting the next day it cranks has spark but does not start?

I guess I am not quite sure why changing the battery would prevent the car from starting, all other things being equal. Are you sure nothing else was done to the vehicle? Who replaced the battery? I don't know why, but the car isn't getting fuel. If it cranks and has spark but does not fire then it is a good chance the fuel pump is no longer operating properly. Once easy way to test this is to see if you can hear the fuel pump operating. You should be able to hear it when you turn your key to the "on" position (just before starting the engine). There should be a momentary buzz from the back as the fuel pump pressurizes the line.
