I've replaced the thermostat and checked the fan but it's still getting hot. What should I check ? It's not really losing any coolant and the coolant is clean . Could it be the water pump or my radiator ? I just got the car so I'm at a loss . The air does not work either
I pulled over to park ,went to start it the next morning ,it started,I drove across the street but when I tried again to start it would not,the day before it was needing alot of water and overheating ,so we now have replaced the coil,has power but will not turn over ,please help
Haven't had any problems with my wagon until i stopped to grab some grub at a truck stop and when I tried to start it back up it made really bad banging noises so I turned it off. Trying to replace the timing belt thinking it skipped a tooth and was off, but i cant get the crankshaft mark to line up because its "catching" on something.
What could be the cause and would it even be worth trying to fix.
engine oil pan gasket
harness seems to be missing, is it a one spade connector on resistor end and two spade on motor end?
have a 214 code for 1994 escort 1.9l 5 speed station wagon. Car runs well, but jerks when giving or letting off of the gas. Have to do it very smoothly so it does not jerk. What is the problem and how to fix it? Have read a little and others say it is a camshaft position sensor. Is this correct? How to fix?
everywhere i took it was told to old for them to check it. don't have the tool. will only check 2000 or newer.what do i do?
none of the lights come on. checked the battery and its good.
I have a coolant leak, water is leaking out between the engine and the trans axle. The leak has gotten progressively worse over time and now is bad enough to kill my starter motor. A head gasket was installed a few years ago when evidence of coolant in the oil was discovered. This leak has been occurring for some time and I have been waiting to fix the problem when the car was ready for a clutch, assuming that I would have to remove the trans axle to get to the offending freeze plug.
When a/c button is pressed the compressor will not turn on
whats the reason for this
i had the timing nelt slip or wore out , so i changed it , made sure number one was tdc , and the cam was were it had to be with the marks , and started and no spark , so i changed the cam sensor , and still no spark , but i just hooked it did not ground it were the 2 bolts go to just wanted to see if it would start , does that make a difference if it was not grounded?
