I was just wondering if the belt near the engine breaks does that mean the values are ruined? I was told that my car has a intermittent engine..which in that case the value would not be ruined.?
we aren't wanting to have to take anything else off of the car. is there a way to put this coil back in the engine without having to take things off of the motor to accomplish this. is there a tool?/ can something be made from home to do this job./
I have 1997 Mitsubishi eclipse rs sometimes when I'm driving my car it will start to want to stall and my engine, oil, and the rest of my dash lights seem to pop up then my car just suddenly dies turns back on after 1 or 2 cranks... But if I step on the gas before it stalls it comes back to life.. can someone help me? I replaced crankshaft position sensor and fuel pump..

The sunroof worked perfectly before but while it was open one night it got shoved back from someone standing out of it and it sounded like it got knocked off track. Now the motor works because it will open and close, but now when you first open it, it doesn't pop up as high as it was and it makes a popping sound when it first opens then needs help closing or it will try and reopen itself halfway closing.
