This list is specific to the 1992 Cherokee with the 4.0l I6 engine- hope it helps: loosen and remove the belt(s) Unbolt the exhaust/intake manifolds (there are 13 bolts i think... maybe 15) and discard the gasket- one bolt goes through the power steering mount unbolt the valve cover about 15 bolt unbolt the head (all remaining bolts on the top, and going in sideways from the AC compressor discard head gasket, and clean ALL gasket mating surfaces Put it all back together. MAKE SURE you follow the manual's bolt torquing pattern!!! otherwise you just did a bunch of work for nothing. By removing the head and replacing the gasket.

What causes a 99 Buick Regal to loose all power while driving?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I have a '95 buick regal with a similar problem. I took it to the local dealer, who changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and one of the ignition modules and the problem was fixed. I researched it on the internet and found several other cases with the same sensor problem. You can in theory change it yourself, but it's not easy - I think I paid $200-250 for parts and labor.

How do you add oil to the front end on a 1989 Toyota pickup 4X4?

User Avatar

Asked by Redrhyder

there should be a drain fill plug on the front your diff. Since you have the IFS probably the easierst way to get oil into it would be to use along piece of fuel line from the top of your engine to the fill plug and just fill it from under the hood rather fan fighting with the bottle underneith the truck.

How do you time your 92 Toyota pickup?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

If you do not know this most basic automotive skill, I suggest you take it to a shop and let someone who knows what their doing, check the timing. If it is beyond the +or- 3 degrees have them adjust it back to spec's.

You do not say why in your question. Usually timing is good for long periods of time, what makes you think it is out of spec?

Buy a 'timing light' and follow the instructions that come with it.

Why would the exhaust of a 93 Olds Cierra 3.3 smell of raw fuel and the engine have no power after replacing the MAF sensor?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Could b an O2 sensor OR a Stuck open thermostat or one that's 2 cold-EVEN a clogged muffler or converter-many other things can cause your condition.

You were careful not to get any dirt on the hotwire/resistor in the sensor? I had a dead bug get on mine, and it didn't get burnt off like it was supposed to. This thing is very sensitive, so any debris on the wire will give you problems. You did plug in the IAT sensor, right? There is also a chance that you have the wrong MAF sensor.

What is a PCV valve?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

PCV stands for positive crankcase ventilation.

They are usually right in plain sight on top of the valve cover. If you had one you probably could have changed it yourself in about 30 seconds or less.

A PCV valve helps keep a constant pressure within the engine block by releasing oil fumes when they get to a certain pressure and sending them into the fuel system to be reburned with the gas.

While they can be inexpensive, they can be very hard to locate and remove on several makes of cars and trucks. Some are internal and cannot be replaced, meaning they are located inside the valve cover.

The PCVs that can be replaced should be replaced every 15 to 60 thousand miles depending on the make and engine you have.

Shop around for a better price than you paid, $12.00 is a little steep.

It stands for positive crankcase ventilation. And what they told u was right about replacing it. All it does is prevent condensation build up and burn fuel fimes that get by the rings. The condensation will build up and create sludge and that is a bad thing because it will block oil galleries and return holes and ur engine will run oil dry and it will be fried.

pos.crankcase vent keeps pressures even in your eng.returns fumes to the intake threw the air filter houseing.easy to check shake it if it rattles it should be good put it back

The answers are correct as to what it does, and how it is to be checked, though usually the "prescribed" way to check it is not just shaking, but trying to suck, or blow, air in both directions (it should be one-way).

However I have never heard of routinely replacing this item, and have known some cheapskates actually "revitalizing" them by spraying them with engine cleaner.

As to price, $9 is too cheap for a professional oil (and filter?) change, so they nailed you for the valve, by its cost, and probably by its need.

There isn't any free lunch.

buy one and keep it in your glove box. change it every other year. it is an emmission control device. it takes blow by and directs back to be used again. it is cheap insurance and prevents sludge. change it every time you get a tune up also change your airfilter out at the same time. If your airfilter is oil soaked, it probably due to a worn pcv valve. change the valve first then change the airfilter.

The PCV Valve, or Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve is an emission control device that routes unburned crankcase blowby gases back into the intake manifold where they can be reburned. The PCV system is one of the oldest emission control devices, and also one of the most beneficial. Besides totally eliminating crankcase emissions as a source of air pollution, the constant recirculation of air through the crankcase helps remove moisture which otherwise would cause sludge to form. Thus the PCV valve extends the life of the oil and engine. The PCV valve requires little maintenance. The valve and filter should be replaced somewhere around 30,000 to 50,000 miles(see the vehicle owners manual for service intervals).

PCV is an acronym for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. This valve is needed to relieve the pressure built up in the crankcase that is created by the heating of the air inside the engine. If this valve were not present and the pressure went unchecked, it would blow out the seals and gaskets inside your engine.

PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. This replaceable valve replaced the vent pipe on the engine, this got rid of the fumes and or pressure that builds up in the crankcase, nowadays the crankcase does not vent into the environment. with the PCV valve these fumes are returned to the intake manifold and are mixed in with the fuel intake stroke to be burned and so create a cleaner exhaust.

Pcv valveI don't think a car has been built in the last 40 years that doesn't have a PCV valve. My 1965 Galaxie had one, but my 64 Ford pickup didn't. PCV means "Positive Crankcase Ventilation", in other words actively sucking junk out of the crankcase rather than just letting it be vented to the air.

The PCV valve allows unburned stuff that blows by the piston to be collected and re-burned rather than just vented to the air, without causing your engine to stall out at idle. This results in a serious reduction in air pollution at virtually no cost, which is why it was the first emissions control device employed.

Look on top of the valve cover. There should be a knob sticking out with a small diameter rubber hose attached to it. It will be inserted in a rubber grommet. You can just pull it out of the valve cover. If it's clogged it will be unnecessarily blowing junk into the air; if it's leaking, it will seriously foul up operation of your engine, especially at idle. They cost about two bucks and you can change it with your bare hands. Replace often. The book says 24000 miles/24 months. I always write the replacement date on them with a Sharpie so I can remember when I replaced it last.

How do you replace the steel brake lines going to the rear end on a '91 Escort GT with rear disc brakes And what is that brake line block that's bolted to the rear suspension?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

First off you didn't say why you would want to replace the brake line. I have never worked on a Ford Escort-- but almost all cars are the same. The brake line runing from the front of the car to the back is a metal tubing, and I will assume that is what you are wanting to replace. Usually the tubing hooks to the Master Cylinder at the front, and runs to the back to a "block" of somekind welded or bolted at the rear of the car. The "block" is there to be used to extend the brake lines farther. Usually the tube goes into the block, and than a soft line is ran from the other side of the "block" to the wheel cylinder which is located on the brake drum assembly. This way the soft tube (also part of the brake line system) can flex as the wheel travels up and down, which a hard line can not do. On some cars, that "block" is used to bring the fluid to the back of the car, going into the "block" and than two hard lines come back out and runs to each side of the car, than it goes into another "block" to allow the soft line to be installed to the wheel cylinder. The "block" is more or less an adapter and that's all it does. There is nothing inside those "blocks", its just a point to add more brake lines, that continue onto the wheel cylinder. NOW -- unless the tubing from the front to the back has been damaged, there is no reason to replace it since it is metal. You can disconnect it from the front, and at the rear block, and blow air thur it to make sure it is not clogged. If it isn't clogged than there is no problem with that brake line, unless you can see it leaking. If it is damaged, the first thing you need to do is follow it from front to back to see if it goes under the body and is easy to get to, some cars have the brake line running under the car, some cars have the brake line going thru the tunnel between the front seats and to the back of the car, and some cars have the brake line under the carpeting going to the back of the car. Under the car brake lines are easy to replace, they are usually just held in by clips attached to the frame. If the brake line goes thru the interior, than it maybe a real job to get to it and replace it. The other problem is the year of the car. Unless the dearlership still has factory brake lines for that year, you are kind of in a bind. You can buy brake line tubing and make your own, but you will need the tools to cut and bend the brake lines, and tools to attach the ends that are needed for the brake line, without the tools, you will have to take it to someone with the tools that can do that, you cannot bend the metal brake lines by hand, they kink, that's why you need a tube bender. And you need a flaring tool to be able to attach the ends needed to the brake line, and a tubing cutter to cut the brake line, hacksaws don't work to well for this type of job. I hope this has been of help to you, if you know what your doing, its not hard to replace brake lines or make your own, just takes a little practice.

How do you get the parking light lens off to change the bulb on a 1994 Toyota pickup after removing the two screws?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I just replaced the headlights on my 1989 truck and to do that you have to loosen the bumper, and remove the grill and the marker lights (great fun). I got stumped a little at the marker lights. After you remove the screws, they pull straight out perpendicular to the vehicle. So imagine you are in the driver's seat: the right marker light pulls straight out to the right, and the left goes straight out to the left. There are two little pins on the marker light assembly that go into corresponding holes on the sides of the front grill. There are plastic doohickies (technical term of course) that make those fit snuggly in the holes. I used a small screwdriver slipped in between the front grill and the marker light assembly to carefully leverage the marker lights straight out. The plastic things can become brittle so be careful to pull straight out and avoid breaking them.

Good luck.

-RM

It sucks you had to go through all that, to repalce your headlights, I removed the turn signals, popped the top row of clips, removed the top screws in the headlight brackets and CAREFULLY bent the light brackets and the side of the grill I was working on, if you're careful, it works fine and saves a ton of hassles, if you're not careful, you'll replace your grill at no cheap cost, I did both sides rather then just the blown light....

How do you change the PCV valve on a 1991 Toyota pickup 4 cylinder?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Remove the vacuum line connected to it, (top center of valve cover - vacuum line connects to intake manifold). Roll a rag and place it next to the valve, using a pair of pliers pry up on the valve using the rag as a fulcrum. When removed from the grommet, use the pliers to remove the grommet from the valve cover and replace both.
