I recently bought the car. But it had sat up for 7 years prior to me buying it. The car ran perfect at first. Then it I was on the expressway driving about 60mph when it suddenly slowed down to 30mph. Drive it back home, replaced the fuel pump, and filter. Now when we try to start the car up, the throttle body catches fire when it starts up. Help please....Also replaced were the starter, cap, rotor,and plugs.
Old motor works, but runs slow (and only on high). Replaced the motor and now have full power, but inside spindle won't turn, so wipers only go up 4". Put old motor back on and spindle turns fine and wipers go all the way up (super slow). Second motor is an exact match for my vehicle. What could be wrong?
The coolant runs out the radiator back into the coolant jug then i have to wait a while for it to cool back down and the oil light stay on but it is full of good oil
96 caprice classic's cooling fans will not turn on. the only time it turns on is when the A/C is on high (passenger side cooling fan). The A/C blows hot air, I haven't added any R134a to it yet. The 25a Air fuse under the hood has been replaced twice but keeps burning out. I flushed the radiator and replaced the thermostat. Please help.
Car acts like there's a huge hydraulic door closer mechanism on the throttle, not allowing it to slow down the revs . . . and hence, will not allow the car to slow down safely. In addition, it is very hard to stop, since the drive wheels are fighting the brakes. I figure that it's a maladjustment, to do with its emissions system.
How do I get the alert light off.
Can't hear fp pumping at all now
Nothing will come on and the vehicle will not start. I have no lights when the door opens and the horn doesn't work and the battery reads good.

I had a tune up and oil change. Cleaned the throttle body. Had the injectors cleaned. New air filter. There's no vacuum leaks. Going to change the fuel filter next but dont know if that will work either. Engine light comes on but dont have any codes.
Car starts great when cold and runs good! When I stop for 15 to 30 min. the car will not start, tries to start but won't stay running, spits and sputters then may or may not start and runs rough when it finally does start. No codes. Fuel pressure is fine and we took catalytic converter off but nothing solved the problem. What next??

Ive located the fuse box but none of the fuses are labeled Blower motor or Fan. My A/C works but no air is being pushed out thru the vents. Ive been told to look for the Fuse labeled Blower Motor or Fan but none of them are labeled with either of those names. Is it the small plastic fuse or one of the larger metallic type fuses? where is it located on the fuse box and what is it called? Thank You.
