when i first start the truck. the speedo works for about a half mile. then it starts jumping up and down. and then just quits all together.

how much comes off to replace my compressor?

I've changed plugs & wires but still get light. I can reset with my scanner but it comes back as soon as you start the vehicle. It only sets a code at engine start. I've reset it after starting the vehicle while the vehicle is running and then driven from KC to Ohio (750 miles / 10.5 hrs) without the light coming on. As soon as I shut the engine off and restart the light comesback on. There are no misfires, no lugging or jerking, and there does not seem to be any impact on mileage. It's been doing this for 2 years now without any other issues.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions.

Turning air off, car runs a little smoother

Took it to O'reillys to ck the diagnostics and was told that it was the variable camshaft timing cylinoid- However I read that before changing this part to possibly ck the engine oil to make sure that it is not dirty!? I was due for an oil change two weeks ago and my change engine oil light has not come on yet- has anyone else had this issue with it being as simple as changing the oil? I get really crappy gas mileage (like maybe 8-9 miles to a gallon)- HELP! Love my Trailblazer, hate that the engine light is on and that my gas mileage is soooo crappy!

I've already replaced the spark plugs and wires. What else could it be? The code that it pulled was cylinder 1 misfire. I don't remember the actual code though.

The lower one on the intake side, Where does it hook up to? Right now there is only a rubber 90 with nothing attached. There is a small hole on the lower intake under the fuel rail, looks loke a bolt hole but is not? Is this where it connects?

My car startes but won't keep running. I turned off all extras (radio, air conditioner) but it won't keep running. Could it be a fuse? This happened after I drove across town,made one stop, no problem. At the 2nd stop it would not restart.


off but now is back on. What do I try next?

the vehicle shifts hard when this happens

Drained all the oil and it had antifreeze in it


all cylinders lost compression. replaced worn-out timing chain and gears. still 0 compression in all cylinders. whats the likliness of all the valves getting bent and staying open. seems there should be some compression in any givin cylinder even if the timing was off. the crank gear is set at 12 o clock the cam gear at 6 o clock..... baffled

o2 sensor comming off that cat

AC blowing slightly hotter than normal

19mm wrench or line removal tool to remove tranny line?

Somehow it came loose and dropped down into the dash and I cannot get to it to "pop" it back into place.

RPM Stalls between 2 and 3 rpm. If I press on the gas it will soon kick in but drops again at 4 rpms.

the little engine stays on. and it mentioned something about knowing the difference between the 2. can someone help me out. and do you have to take it to the shop to turn it off.??

with the timing chain tensioner if any

It just takes a few seconds before turning over.

The Hayes manual shows one for the 1.8, but its not on the 1.6.
I have good spark and fuel , just wont run, stopped on the road like it was turned off.
So far it seems the fuel injectors are not letting fuel into the engine.
Does this seem right?
Fuel injectors ..
The book says only one of 2 terminals on the connector for the fuel injector should be hot when connected to ground, but both of them on all injectors are hot all the time when grounded.
It seems to me, that the item (camshaft position sensor ?) is shorted out or no ground. I cant find anything showing a CPS in any manuals and the toyota service dept, who have been helpful , im surprised , say the CPS is located where im looking, but thats only on the 1.8 engine.

also drive somewhere turn engine off will not start again for 20 or 30 minutes. what could cause this to happen?

Blower motor only works on 3,4 and 5. I assume its the resistor. Not sure how to get to it. Also when I push button for inside air it comes on then jumps back to out side air by its self. Half to push it 3 or 4 times before it stays.

can i use a steering gear box from a 86 elcameno
