try using a quality fuel injector cleaning with a full tank of 'good' gas. Also might want to replace fuel filter. Sometimes the gas tank has to be cleaned which in that case ii would take to a professional shop.
check yor fuse panel and inspect the fuse for the conv. top motor and replace if needed.
I agree with bretbs answer. Was wondering if u meant drive belt. If so inspect for cracks or splits or if it makes noise definitly replace.
make sure ur using the correct type of socket to remove the plugs. If u can see the fitting on the plug u should be able to remove it. You have to use a deep seated socket with a rubber piece at the bottom that protects the fragile part of the plug. Hope this helps.
I would replace spark plugs and wires if not already done. Also service the cooling system(flush and refill). Replace air and fuel filters. inspect drive belt and check all fluids.
your car has a coil on plug igniton which means there are no wires to replace. I would try replacing the spark plugs with new platinum plugs. If this doesnt help u may need new coil assembly.
First thing i would check is the front drivers side bearing and repack or replace if any signs of wear.
the rubbing metal sound reminds me of worn out a.c. pulley noise.if your a.c. does not work this is probably the culprit. Replace condencer or get a drivebelt that by-passes that pulley.
I looked up the rear brake replacement cost and its very affordable and does not mention anything about the emergency brake. The emergency brake should have nothing to do with the rear brakes.
when you talk about this shake when the engine is cold does it constantly shake or would u say its more of a loop? Does it shake then stop and shake and stop again. If you want to locate the source of the shake/vibration i recommend using a small vaccum hose to isolate the sound.
I recently replaced opti spark on caprice. Should i have computer reprogrammed and how much does a shop typically charge for this service?
car started missing more and more over ashort period of time. with 52000 miles i suspected spark plugs so i replaced them. The problem remained and a scan showed p0304(misfire at cylinder #4). I took the coil from #4 and switched with #2 and the code changed but engine was still missing. Does this sound like a coil assembly and wondering possible causes. Please advise.
Can failing cats cause a hesitation or stumble especially when engine is under load?
