How hard is it to change the transmission mounts on this vehicle?
I changed the spark plugs on this vehicle after buying it. I ran a little riugh before but runs smoothly now. After changing the plugs, i started having problems with the vehicle cranking. The instrument panal lights will not come on and the engine just turns over but its like it doesn't have any power to anything. If I just bump the starter or turn the ignition of and on a couple of time the instrument panel lights will come on like it suddenly has power and the vehicle will start. sometimes it will continue to run and sometimes it just turns itself off as if you turned the ignition of but the ignition is still in the on position. The electric seats and windows as well as the radio will still work with the key in that position but the car is off with no lights showing.
Let me try this again. I usually have problems explaining things. The dashboard lights such as the instrument panal and the guages usually come on when the vehicle is cranked and is running. These are not check engine lights but the normal dash lights that come on when the vehicle is running so that you can see the guages. It appears to be some type of electrical problem
I recently purchased this vehicle from an auction. I took it home and replaced the spark plugs on it. Before replacing the plugs it ran a little rough. It smoothed out afterward. Then I started having problems with it not cranking. The lights and gauges on the instrumnet panel would lite up and the car would crank. After changing the plugs sometimes the lights on the panel do not light up and the vehicle just turns over. After awhile if you just bump the starter and wait the gauges will light up and the car will start and then all of the sudden, it turns off by itself as if you turned the key off. My local GM dealer performed a diagnostic and told me that the batery was to weak to get a reading so we replaced the battery and that seemed to cure the problem for about a week and now it is doing the same thing again. Any ideas? The lights that i am talking about are the regular dash lights that show you the guages and shows that you have power to the dash not the check engine lights
