Question Asked: 

This Buick randomly decides when it does and does not want to start. It seems to be getting spark. it gets fuel, I tested that by pushing the pin on the fuel rail. It does it spiratically and there doesn't seem to be any pattern to what I do as to when it doesn't start. I took it to a shop and he said that he couldn't say for sure what was wrong unless it acts up when he can put a computer on it. Any ideas?

Question Answered: 

Both of those codes have something to do with the tranny. the p0700 is a transmission control system malfunction, or TCM. The p2767 is a speed control module malfunction. They more likely than not could be linked since the speed sensor is in the tranny, which would cause the control system malfunction code if the sensor is bad. Unfortunately the nest way to tell is have a professional with a scanner that can communicate with the TCM and pull the codes on that to see what the real problem is. Is the speedo working right?

Question Answered: 

Take it up to oreillys and have them clear the code. Its free and they can also pull current codes as well. I do it all the time. They actually just hand me the scanner when I ask for it when I walk in now. I think auto zone does it too but not sure. Don't have one of those near by

Question Asked: 

Somehow either the hose leading to the rear glass has broken or become disconnected, not sure which because I cant find any way to get to it. I know the leak is in the fender area somewhere but the only way I can find to get to it is by taking off the plastic in the wheel well, an di really don't want to do that if I don't have to. Any way I can get to it from under the hood or anywhere else that any of you guys know of? thanks for your help.

Question Asked: 

My dodge 360 will not start. it has low compression on all cylinders and zero on the back two on the right bank. it is getting fuel, seems to be firing. burned oil for a long time and it looks as though there is coolant in the oil so im thinking bad headgsket. but will that cause it not to start? let me know what you think and how much you think it would be to fix it. parts mainly since I will do it myself. I just don't want to tear it apart without knowing if its even worth the time to tear apart. It died on the highway, first it started shaking like crazy, its done this for a while when under pressure, so I let off so it shake itself out of the truck, then it lost all power, sputtered, and died. Will turn over and over but will not start. thanks for your help

Question Answered: 

94-01 should be able to go in it. but make sure they have the same engine VIN number. i think its the fifth character and the 5.2 is a x i think, but dont quote me on that part.

Question Asked: 

I have been trying to find where the plugin for the wireing harness for a brake controller on my jeep is. It has the factory installed plugs on back but i cant find the little blue plug that the controller plugs into. I aked the people at the local dealership where it is but they were no help, as usual. Everything i find says it is under the dash but i cant find it. If anyone has foudn it, it would be very helpful as i need to pull a camper with it soon. Thankyou.

Question Asked: 

My 360 is burning a good amount of oil and would prefer not to sell the truck, especially considering the fact that a newer and better one worth my time will cost at least 10 grand, which I don't have. I found a used engine at a scrap shop for 500 bucks but since it doesn't have a vehicle with it I cant start to hear it run and everything. How would I go about checking it so I don't spend a lot of time and money on an engine that is in sores shape than the one I have now. Thanks for your help.
