Question Asked: no start

friends car was starting and when driving or just idling it would just stall after a while. I noticed that the tack would drop to 0 and I would step on the gas and it would run. When ever it stalls it starts right back up. I sprayed some carb cleaner in the throttle body and cleaned the plate and body with a toothbrush, now it turns over but doesnot start or even hit. What can be wrong.

start your vehical up and when it stalls take a hose and spray cool water on the crank sensor for 10 seconds or so. Then see if it will start, if it does then the crank sensor is bad. Don't laugh I did this on a Buick lesabra that no one could figure out and as soon as the cranksensor was replaiced the car never stalled again.
Hope this helps

Question Answered: Overheating!!! One fan not working.. could it be why?
July 20, 2010, 06:04 AM
If your vehical was designed with two cooling fans then you will have to have both of them operating properly or you will experience some overheating. I would also check the thmostate to make sure it is not sticking shut. Hope this helps.
Question Answered: My brakes went out what do I do?
July 20, 2010, 05:54 AM
I would start with installing new pads and rotors. If your car is really grinding then you caliper maybe extended out to far and this is why you may have now braking. I would get new pads and rotor. take a c clamp or go to auto parts store and buy a tool that will push the cylinder back into the caliper. you may have to add break fluid to after your pad and rotor replacement. Hope this helps
Question Answered: wiring a trailer harness
July 20, 2010, 05:47 AM
Get a test light from the auto parts store, it has a point on one end to pierce the wires and a led in the handle plus a grounding latch on the end of the wire that comes out of the handle. connect the ground wire and turn on the turnsignals, start piercing the wires till you find the one that makes the led flash on your test light do this till yu have found all the wires that work the test light properly. The trailer hookup should have a wiring diagram and instruction on witch wire does what for the trailer lighting. Hope this helps
Question Answered: low pressure port
July 15, 2010, 05:55 AM
The low preasure port should either be marked with a Black or Blue cap and sometimes labeled with a L for lowpreasure side. your hose that is purchased at an autoparts store for adding 134A freon will not fit on the high preasure side and most are quick connect couplers. Hope this helps.
