My main belt broke and I was told it was due to my water pump going out causing it to lock up. I changed the water pump and belt but now my car runs hot sometimes and I've noticed the fans aren't kicking on unless u have the air on. Would this some how be connect or am I looking at more than one problem??
If I use an online manual is it easy enough to change out the heater motor and resistor myself?
also makes a hydraulic noise and the brakes dont work, when you push really hard they will work again
I have put in a new water pump, flushed coolant and put in new antifreeze. There has not been any water in the oil. The cooling system was tested. There was no co2 in the coolant and it keeps pressure. I am lost as to where the antifreeze goes. The surge tanks stays fine for days then will start going down.
will there be any damage to piston or valves or what more damage there could be
I changed the fluid, filter, and oil. Checked the filter to see if fell, it didn't, but it still wont engage. there is one weird thing. I no longer have to press the brake pedal to move the shifter. Is there a neutral safety switch attached to this?
After getting enough speed the car will slam into every gear. My 7 year old says it feels like the car is hitting a pole as it shifts. Problem just started. Also, the transmission would not shift into reverse a few times. The only way to get it to go into reverse was to put it in drive rock it forward and then shift into reverse. No violent noise when shifting into reverse.
Heater barely wtms up, coolant comes form below the block. Hoses fine, new water pump and gasket. What will this cost me at the shop?
my mileage is 80,000 and car runs fine but i am worried that it is time to change
already had one replaced under warranty, and now another has failed, estimate of $230!!!!!!!
I have a 1995 ford Taurus which broke down a few weeks ago. I have owned this auto for three months has run fine. On a 65 degree day it will only try to start maybe even turn over, but will not run. On a 35 to 40 degree day will start and run for 30 seconds tops, in this time you can rev engine up but still hint a small hesitation, loses power quickly starts to choke up or just starts to die and shuts off. You can try to start it again only tries. I smelled the exhaust and is really rich, but doesn't smell loaded like raw gasoline, just not clean. I put fuel filter on seem to have fuel flow and pressure, did change out fuel pressure regulator didn't change. I do disconnect battery for EEC reset. I have tried to start it with the MAF, and the two other sensors on the throttle body, not all at one time, but the car doesn't start. I disconnected the sensor that is inline with PVC EGR which this sensor is vacuum and electric. Could it possibly be the cold allows the exhaust to be cold and i the 25seconds warm the exhaust up and o2 sensors be defective and not allowing the engine to run. Does the warm day have any reliance?? and does the warming of the exhaust have any relevance?? or do you have any information to help- find a remedy for this situation sensors, relay, distributor, exhaust?? please help if you ca give me a professional diagnosis. This car doesn't give a code, but does that mean a scanner won't work?? do I get some one to come with a snap on diagnostic machine?? Thank You, Larry & Crystal Baker :(
