Car won't start can u help me please.
My shop says Ford no longer makes this part, and cant find a check engine assembly anywhere. Where can I find one?Cant pass inspection without fixing! My car has only 80K miles!
My tail light/dash fuse blew out and also melted the insulation on the wire from the back of the fuse box out. I need to know what it will cost and/or what it is.
When car is turned off then i try to restart it wont start. I have a 3 month old battery un it.
If my car sits over night I will attempt to start but it takes sometimes 3 tries so during the day if it sits for more than an hour it does the same.
Sometimes it idles out of control I have to turn off. Sometimes it will stop doing it sometimes it is worse. No one can figure it out. To me it seems like the gas pedal sticks. But was told it is not it.
Was driving down road and just died. Cranked over and started. Dove 1 mile and died. Bought new battery started, got it home. Replaced fuel pump, checked fuses, new plugs and wires and fuel shut off switch. New serpentine belt few months ago. Is there a relay somewhere I didn't check? How do I check power to fuel pump? Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
BTN shows parasitic draw, what is it and what does it power
it won't pass inspection. They clear the error and have to drive it 40 to 50 miles to clear other three monitors then message comes back
My clutch pedal has to go very close to the floor to shift
were are relays???
Manual transmission...Number 2 cylinder isn't firing. Timing belt was replaced prior to the problem with the #2 cylinder. It idles horribly and dies if foot isn't on gas. It happens everytime I drive it. Doesn't run very fast even with gas petal to the floor.
It improved once when I cleaned the engine....it ran fine for 15 minutes but that's it. The other two times were random and lasted for about 5 minutes.
Its important I get it done in time to get an test so I can get my plates
Radiator fluids been changed couple months ago and the fluids up to the full line. But my check coolant light keeps going on?
Took my car in cuz there no acceleration/stalling. Cadilidic converter and fuel coil where both replaced. Week later fuel coil craps out. Replaced a third time. 3 hours later that coil is a bust as well?? What is causing the coil to keep going bust. Or is it actually possible I gotten three new faulty parts in a row??
