The caliper has 2 dowel like rods going thru the brakes. how do you get these out once you take out the all the bolts. Are they suppose to be pressed out or come out easily

I noticed the gap on my plugs where too low when my car was running rough. I re-gapped them to 1.32mm (.052in). Is my conversion wrong? Now the car runs terrible!! I have to put them back to the narrow setting, (apx .5mm). What could be the problem??

My timing belt broke while I was driving. Can just the timing belt be fixed or will I have other engine damage? How difficult is it to change the timing belt yourself?

My car has a very high-pitched whining sound coming from under the hood when I turn the car on. It continues the entire time the car is in drive, except that it decreases, sometimes even goes away, when I accelerate. I had the timing belt changed and a camshaft gear put on as recommended by the mechanic, but the noise is still there. It dies out a few seconds after the car is shut off. It fades away gradually. I'm absolutely desperate for some help. Engine is not running hot but car is stalling, although I believe this is a separate issue entirely (code reads lean bank). Another mechanic told me it was in the engine and that I needed to get another one.

Cant find the expantion valve/ screen in the AC sys, is it in the heator core asy ?

The Flex pipe needs to be replaced and the muffler shop is quoting $160.

Not sure if this is a fair deal!

Where is the AC expantion valve located.

The brake lights stay on when I turn off the ignition. What is the problem?

I would like some help in repairing the door lock mechanism..it will not unlock from outside with key...its stuck..also there is a leak on the passenger side, does anyone know of possible leaking routes that lead to floor board. thanks

Hello. The timing belt broke on my Ford Escort while the car was idling in my driveway. I'm told if my car has an interference engine type that the valves will have been damaged (making repair too exensive). Can anyone tell me if my engine is an interference type? If not, I can get it fixed for a reasonable price. Otherwise I will have to dump the car. Thanks. Pete
