Question Asked: I had a smog test in NV last year while visiting. It flunked. I soon to move.
July 21, 2014, 08:26 AM
To NV and want to repair it before I do. The NV repair shops are very expensive as to AZ. I'm told its not that difficult of a fix that is under or around the distributor. The report said: "High Speed CO 3.03% Greater than 1.20% and High Speed HG 227 Greater than 220 parts per million." Can anyone give me advice on this and how to fix it. At that same time of the test I had a few small holes in the muffler. I replaced it. Do you think that had anything to do with my van flunking?
Question Asked: I'm getting a clunking sound somewhere either in tranny or some other place.

a tranny shop thinks its the planet plates gears inside, but it only happens in drive and starts about 3/4 miles down the road. If I drive in 2nd or 1st it does not sound. Another tranny shop says the planet gears only operate in 2nd and 3rd. I have an automatic. To replace the planet gears we are looking at a whole new tranny job costing $1500. What if that's not it? Any suggestions?
Question Asked: I am getting a winding sound either under the hood or in the tranny.

It starts at about 30 mph. Sometime it doesn't sound at all. If I drop down rpm's it will quite out. I was told it was my wheel bearings. I replaced those and the rotors and it still is their. I was told it was my drive train and when they lifted it up they found nothing wrong. I changed an idler pulley and the serpinteen belt and it still is their. A transmission shop says its sound like a bearing inside. They want $1400 to change it out. It runs good and doesn't sound all the time. About 6 months ago I changed out a water pump and used the old clutch could It be that? I am having a small problem with a leak in my power sterring holder. Coould it be that or in the sterring housing. Im dazed and confused. Hope its nothte tranny.

Question Answered: How do I remove broken thermostat housing bolts?
November 23, 2013, 05:43 AM
Bolt snapped how much? Can you get a bite on any part of it. You may have to drill it out and make a new hole for threading. My 94 B150 thermastate is ditting on top of the engine. No need to remove alternator. Is this like yours?
Question Answered: Trying to replace Alternator. Bolt holes do not align if you bolt one side
November 21, 2013, 04:13 PM
Put bottom bolt in first but don't tighten it all the way. Take a tire iron or crow bar and place it next to the alternator on the left side and lift. Make sure you have a good foundation on the tire iron/ crow bar notto damage anything else. It should line up the top hole so you can get a bite.

remove all screws holding on panel. Remove screw holding on handle. Or visa versa. if its electric you need to remove screws or other holding down window electrical. You should be able to lift it out with wires still intact while removing panel.
