Car was driving and rmp gauge started jumping but not engine rpm and then the engine died and won't start again. Car has been setting for a year or more. Oil coolant and trans fluid are all good.
my car starting 2 lose gas uses alot
I must of hooked up the wires the wrong way. When I reconnected the positive cable the car started up without the keys in the ignition. Now I can't get anything to work in the car. Any ideas thanks
If I let it sit a Lil bit it'll start again sometimes it'll go far sometimes it'll only make it a few miles
What would be needed for repair for it to stop normally...... reminder doesn't stop.....
I don't really know what's wrong with it yet my mom said the whole front panel needs replaced and wherever she took it they told her they couldn't find it. So instead they made the air conditioning come out the defrost vent only and it constantly needs filled up with freon. So I'm just want to know where I can order every single part needed so we can try to fix it
It cranks,acts like it want to start. Pulld plug wire,inserted a plug then grounded plug. Spark was oarnge in color. Wat could be bad?
We have an 88 Merc Tracer my son just bought. It was running rough so we replaced the plugs n wires. Everything is gapped correctly, firing order is correct. We can't get it to start. It cranks over n you can smell fuel, so no fuel issues...its just not sparking. Any ideas?
i have a 89 mercury tracer station wagon and my rpm gage quit working
I am trying to add Freon to my 1993 mercury topaz and I can't find the plsce to recharge at
i get under it and bang on starter and wiggle wire on connector it starts. otherwise most of the time it clicks
IThe sound sounds like it's coming from the bottom of the engine.
I ALSO CHANGED THE IGNITION COIL. I HAD THE FILTER HOUSING OFF ALSO TO REPLACE SOME FITTINGS ON IT. NOW MY IDLE IS RUNNING TO HIGH AND WON'T COME DOWN. ABOUT 2000 RPMS IN PARK AND ABOUT 175 IN DRIVE. THE CAR RUNS GREAT EXCEPT FOR THE HIGH IDLE. WHAT CAUSED THE IDLE TO GO UP.
It's starts up fine, but will not accelerate when pressing on the gas
My water pump went out. It is pouring out antifreeze. I found the pump at carquest- the only place that had it. Now the mechanic says I need a hose- and the ones at the local stores have one that is too small. This is a hose I cannot put my hands on, I don't know the name or where to find it. Knowing a formal name for it would help the search a whole lot.
With fuel injection is it the pump that doesnt work after its completely ran out of gas or what would cause it to not start
Where is the valve that shuts off the fuel pump during a wreck located and it's not in the trunk that i can find?Could these stick sometimes and cause engine to sound like it's missing at times?
Car was starting up and running great. I stopped for gas and then it would not start. My first thought was the starter went. It did not turn over.. just click, click, click. Towed to my mechanic who jump-started it.. checked out voltages (battery, alternator, starter).. all good. Drove car 40 miles to work no problems. Started car 1 hour before shift ended, again it started up. One hour later when it was time to go home.. DEAD. Had to get a jump and drove home no problem. I let it sit for 3 days assuming that there was a drain and it would not start.. but it did! Asked my mechanic to check everything.. he did and said he could not find anything. I KNOW there is something wrong. When at a stop light my blinkers slow down as well as my fan. Am I wrong to think that I need a new alternator? What could make a battery suddenly die within an hour and then come back to life?? Im saving for a newer car, but I do need to rely on this parasite to get me to work. I welcome any and all suggestions. Thanks !!!
When I start my car and the service engine light is on when I start it it will stall unless I'm giving it gas also when I'm driving and the service engine light comes on it runs horrible like its not getting enough gas or oxygen and if I come to a stop it stalls
the gear at the bottom of distributor keeps wearing out on my 1993 Mercury Topaz with a 3.0 motor
This is the second time in a week that my car is back in the shop for the same thing that happened to the worm gear at the bottom of the distributor and cam shaft the first time they replaced just the distributor. IT cost me (430.00) now they are saying that the oil pump is causing this to happen that for $650.00 they will replace it. Today when I broke down I removed the cap and seen that the rotor was not moving so I knew that the same thing happened to this car again. please help I never heard of an oil pump causing this to happen
