Maf unplugged runs smoother but it is a new maf what could it be
The radiator hoses when squeezed and car is off they put make the reservoir gurgle. The car is over heating and spilling coolant from the reservoir once its heating up. No leaks anywhere.
The reservoir boils and spills out the coolant. i have a new water pump and a new radiator just trying to see what it should be before i change it or if they need to be changed.
I made sure the connection on the alternator are secure. Some were loose and one broke because it was corroded.
Car won't start replaced fuel filter,line pump, coil, rotor and distributor cap and fuel pump relay motor turns and wants to start its seems no fuel is reaching engin help
on vehicle? He installed defective water pump which broke head & others who looked @ car while cooled off & attempted to put water in it saw water pouring out around screws & said mechanic didn't tighten seals, which caused head to crack? Should labor be his responsibility?
I replaced the starter still won't start
Not working at all
Over a period of about a month the warning lights of my Volvo would come on., and there would be a bit of a lull. Then suddenly the car slowly came to a stop and the car would not start. The battery was dead, but after a couple days there was juice left in the battery, but not enough to turn the engine. Is it the volt regulator, the battery, or the alternator?
At first i gat the alternator alinment screw and the alternator belt is tighter now the car still wont stay charged after a brand new battery
1989 240 DL electrical anomoly with overdrive
I have a 1989 240 DL wagon which exhibits the following problems:
When the key is turned to ON, only the yellow overdrive arrow light comes on the instrument panel. Pushing the OD button on the automatic transmission does cycle the light on and off. NONE of the normal engine oil, battery, or other lights come on. The bulbs check good with an ohmmeter. The car will start and run, but none of the gages register (speedo, fuel, temp, etc.); but the alternator does NOT put out any charge. I had the alternator tested at a local NAPA auto parts store; they advised replacement- which I did. It made NO DIFFERENCE. After driving it for approx. 15-20 minutes, the red BATT light comes on- and weakly flashes. Coincident with that, the speedo, fuel, and temp gages show some readout- but not a correct/ normal indication. The car wil shift in and out of overdrive- but the yellow arrow is ON when it is in overdrive (4th), and OFF when it is in 3rd- just the OPPOSITE of normal! What the hell is going on here?

I can hear the starter spin but its not engaging the engine. Is it a bad starter or something else?
I bought a new alternator, fuel pump with filter along with a new starter .. But still no start from my engin just a crank
New battery. Seems to get good power and acts like it wants to start but just won't.
