finally this year, AC not blowing cold air anymore.
Use a bit during winter to keep seals tight.

repair shop put two starters in one per year since problem started around 100,000 miles. 2nd starter began clicking a few months after install. After several tries, the engine will start. Would like a permanent solution.

seems the valve cover seal washers fail often and leak oil

This happens every time I drive it . When car sits awhile, it will crank again.

i have a mazda mpv van 1991 and we had to replace the altornator after it was replaced it would die on me from time to time until it wouldn't start so we had a mechanic check it out he said it was the distributor after that was replaced it still didn't work an he couldn't tell us if the little box on the side of it was suppose to read anything or not so we took it to another machanic an he hooked it to a machine said it was the distributor coil but now it keeps blowing the coil it doesn't stay on any longer than 20 minutes before it kills the new coil we've went thru 4 coils trying to figure out the problem the machine says everything is fine but it still won't turn over the mechanic is stumped what could be wrong with it?

When Starting Cold Engine it Misfires ( Rough Fast Idle )for about a Minute then is fime and Runs Great. Restart is great up to about 2 hours . I installed New Distributer with Igniter,Set Timing,new Spark Plugs,New Wires, New Fuel Filter. Fuel Pump is original,20 years old..
This is driving me crazy !! Any Suggestions would be a big help.

Replaced starter three times in six months.

We need detailed instructions on getting to and changing the heater core. 

My van will start for about a minute and then shut off. I replaced the starter, fuel pump, spark plugs,alternator, and battery. I feel that it could be the injectors because I put fuel cleaner in the gas tank and it ran for at least 2-3days and now it is giving me the same problems. it starts and then shuts off, as well as when I driving. What Do I need to do and what Do you think the problem is? Please Help..

For the past 2 months my vehicle struggles to start. I have to keep cranking the engine for about 3 to 6 seconds before it starts, and when it starts the temp. gauge has to be in the middle in order for me to turn off the car. If the temp. gauge is less than the half point, the vehicle will not start again for 2-3 days. About 3 days ago, my vehicle started fine. I drove it around the block to warm the engine up then went home. After an hour, I wanted to go to the store and when I went to start my vehicle. My vehicle wouldn't start anymore. The engine cranks but it won't turn on. What could be the Problem?

Have a problem starting the car, i was driving the car and the engine shut off while driveing. I tried to start the car but, it just kept on turning over. it still does. There is no spark from the coil acording to the ohm meter. there is no power going to the coil, I ordered the distributor, but my neighbor said it wasn't the problem. so I bought the coil, but when I installed the new one and started the car it started then turned off and just keeps turning over. so I put the old one back in it. I'm not sure what the problem is. please help.
Concludig there is no power going to coil, and I need to know what to do. thanks
