how many hours of labor go into replacing a timing cover gasket and what is a fair price to pay a buddy for doing it for me?
1.the a/c cools fine but after a minute the clutch of the compressor kicks out what can be the reason?
2.can somebody tell me were is the thermostat of the a/c positoned and were are the wiring goes to?
I need a tune up and probably a fuel injector
i had a rydler pully broken that disconcted some wires under the hood and after that happend the a/c starts cooling and then stops cooling after a minute or two minute.
maby there are wires of the thermostat there that i did not find where are they positioned
i had a leak in a hose and fixed it earlier that day. turned the car off and went into a store and when i came back out it would crank but not start. Put in a new control module and coil and no change.Im not getting any spark at the coil.
sometimes have to push the clutch several times before it does anything
I'm putting an '89 Formula back together. The engine runs but the idle is low and jumps from 6 to 800 rpms. I tried a new maf sensor (that's the code I'm getting) but that didn't work. Spark plugs, wires, injectors are all new. I have read of others having this same problem. Could it be the EGR solenoid? Thanks for your help.
How much would it be to get the power locks on the doors and the windows fixed?
it has been doing it for about 3 weeks it is my wifes car she has to swipe her card to get into work she will roll the window down and then the radio goes off and she cant roll them back up. I have put my scanner on it and there are no error codes when it works and when it doesnt. some times its been off for 3 days other times they come back on in a few hrs. she has been driving and not useing the radio or windows and look down and the radio lights will be out and she checks the windows and they are out too. I was able to make it do it by rolling the passenger side window all the way down and then holding the button down a few secs more
I hope you can help me with this thanks

Went to get my car outta storeage last weekend, and i had an engine crank no start issue. wasn't getting spark or fuel. cleaned off the cap and rotor and got spark back, but still not getting fuel. used a pressure tester, and it reads 0 when cranking. I don't hear the fuel pump when i turn the key on. fuses are fine. tank is about 3/4 full. the car ran before i put it away for 6 months. the car isn't in a good spot as it sits to drop a fuel tank, and it also isn't in a good spot to be towed either. any suggestions as to getting the fuel pump running, or if it could be another issue?
also i notice my SES light doesn't come on when you first turn the key for it's self diagnostic checks. it always used to. any ideas about that? maybe could these 2 issues be related?
1 can't get my interior lights to go off 2 can't get my brake light to come on all bulbs replaced lights work just doesn't brighten the pedal is pushed 3 can't get the blinkers to work on my passenger side front light and tail light
Ok, I got one for you. I normally answer these but I am a little stumped. The pass side headlight actuator motor started to make this groaning/howling/vibrating noise when opened or closed. It opens and closes smoothly. No skipping like I would expect with a failing actuator. The weird thing is that now when you set the door locks with the key fob the headlights cycle open and close with the same noise happening. If you lock with the interior door locks does not happen and then if use the key fob to unlock the cycle again happens with the noise at same time. Never did the open/close cycle till noise started. When turn on or turn off the headlights from inside it happens when opening and closing but will stay up till turn off the switch. I am tempted to replace actuator motor but unsure why does not skip when opening/closing if gearing is stripped and I do not believe the cycling open/close will stop with replacement. Thank you in advance for any help. Wife's car so must fix somehow, get what I mean?

Occasionally my radio goes off then I can't use my power windows. Then when the radio comes back on the windows work. Is that a wiring problem. Note: When I bought the car I had an Alpine alarm security system put in, it hasn't worked for years, should this be removed and could it cause the problem? Thank you so much.
