I just had a newer engine put in this car. I have too much money in it to junk it. It has a new tranny, all brakes, rear axle, windshield, springs, hubs, etc.... I just spent $1500 on the engine swap. Same guy is doing the work, but I need a heads up on the upcoming cost. I'll be using used parts.

I was driving along and went to slow down i hit the brakes and it barely slowed down like the brake booster was shot. The brake booster holds vacume most of the time if booster goes bad it dont hold vacume and now the font calipers are stuck this all happend at the same time. I also took the calipers off and they compress back easily so i know the calipers are not sricking could this be mastercylder problem? Thanks Dan

any on-line stores that can top advance or regular auto parts.any machine shops that deal in full gasket sets,Sincerely

i may be rebuilding this dodge 4 cylinder truck.what is the average price on the whole gasket set,or rebuild kit with rings and bearings.and does this engine have a timing chain or belt?sincerely Robert p.s it isnt locked up but think oil pump may have failed.havent torn it down yet,but a price quote on above items would be good.Thank you.

do you think it could just be the rear head gasket blown,no water in oil or no steaming,it runs good.it did overheat.think maybe the head gasket is blown.it is leaking right between head and block,pretty heavy while running.and are the heads aluminum
thank you.im a mechanic,rareky have i seen water pour between head and block,without a crack.how much are the gasket sets for head and intake?

Jumped time need to reset it chain does not look broke nor does the cams look like they have lost any teeth..

Balancer needs to be change and I don't know how. Thank you.

Can you tell me if its the pressure switch or something else

2 times in the month ive noticed it idleing high but if i shut car off and restart it seems to be ok this time the check engine light came on and will not shut off?

It will start and stall after few mins idling. Sounds like a tapping the higher it idles the faster it taps and I saw puff white smoke come from the valve cover as it stalled. Was thinking bad valve cover gasket and oil on spark plugs. Has been very reliable car until just recently. Now stalls sometimes when it's put into gear. Not sure what to start with!

some one tore up the switch we changed it and now we can't start it.It turns over but no results in starting it.

I had a diagnostic test done and the guy said that it was the theft deterrant system fuel cutoff what can I do???

I shut key off it returns and restart it returns to normal sometime it last and sometime drop back to empty

When i took the bolt out to replace the belt tensioner i got screw filler shavings or what looks like a boltscrew holder inside.. What are the called and how do i ask for them???
