i have oil leaks that are starting to affect the spark plugs and also the way my car drives this has started last week

summary: i have lost all power to my car like there is no battery in it, this is after i had changed plus wires due to a miss fire! prior i had changed the spark plugs.. then a dist cap, rotor button and then a whole dist.. since then i put a starter on. i took the hot cable off the battery before removing, now i have no power and no clue. i have checked fuses and replaces all 30amps. anyone have a answer! i would highly grateful..

The car rarely starts on the first try. It can take anywhere from 2 to 20 tries before the car will start. It sounds like something spinning when it won't start right away. When it does start, it cranks properly and we are on our way. Can you give some ideas as to what might be causing this?

The bolt on the inside of the control arm bar broke recently on my caprice. I was hoping I could just replace the bolt but after looking the area over it seems impossible. The problem has caused my driver side wheel to slant inward and steering has become tight. I stopped driving it the moment I heard the bolt break.

i kinda hit a car that was in front of me, not to hard tho but my chrome bumper is pushed in a lil , how can i fix it to it looking good?

If I leave the car in idle it will start to overheat, a personal mechanic looked at it already but not at a shop so could not diagnose why the fans were not coming on unless I turned on my A.C.

87K Original on the Odometer.
just this morning I got in it, started it right up as usual but when I put it in reverse to back out it didn't move, So I put it in drive, hit the gas, it didn't move just revved like I was in neutral. up to this point gave no signs or shutters of transmission problems.
I haven't checked the fluid yet, but have noticed no evidence of it leaking, it is parked in the same spot every night.

any ideas guys?


the car was running after 5miles it cut off at the bank the fuel pump is working and is getting fuel to the injectors. getting no spark what could it be?

Two weeks ago i replaced my transmission but i went (USED on my 90- caprice classic. Before i changed it, it was changing gears on first and second but once the car went to 25 to 30 miles per hrs. it idled up and felt as if the transmission was slipping. i changed it for it to happen again the same way the first time. Is there a reason that this might be happenning like a sensor or something, or could it be i just got bad luck with the USED transmission i bought and i should replace it again? thank you, Samuel

how many man hours on changeing fuel line and tank

I have a 1994 Chevrolet Caprice with a 5.7 engine. I recently had the optispark changed to stop a backfiring problem. The day after that I got the fuel pump changed. When I went to pickup the car I couldn't drive off unless I had the hazard lights on. Here's the other part of the problem, when I turn on the headlights the car cuts back and cuts off. My taillights are so dim that u can't tell their on and the third brake light stays on...unless I have the hazards on. However, the hazards blink slow but never completely cut off and while the hazard lights are on my third brake light functions normally, but no other lights. I've checked fuses and wires, nI need help

The car stalled on me and would not start. The water pump went out so I had the water pump replaced and the mechanic said that it was not getting a spark so I had the distributor changed and the ignition coil but it still will not start.
