It has 250,000 miles on the engine. About how much should it cost me to replace the timing chain/belt ?
I slowly turned the key in the ignition (part way). But BEFORE the key turned all the way, to actually turn over (crank) the engine, I heard a REALLY loud "pop" sound like an air rifle, and smoke came out (seen at right window). Now the van was NOT running yet. I waited a moment and then turned the key all the way, and the van started fine. The gauges were fine, and I drove home (18 miles) without incident. So what WAS that? Any ideas?
I replaced the sensor with another, and I still get the codes. I checked the wiring harness and getting voltage. I made sure the connection was secure as well. Not sure where to go from here. Its due for smog and cannot fix.
The wipers stay on at all times when the vehicle is on. Have to disconnect the battery so the light do not kill the battery. Changed the turn signal/brights mechanism on the side of the steering column and the light switch.
Hello,

An inversion of polarity of the battery made a short circuit. Nothing more ignites.
Is there a general fuse?

Thanks
Right above my oil filter I'm leaking a lot of oil. I've had people say it's coming from what looks like where the engine mounts to the transmission. And also could be a o ring or gasket?
