AND IT BACK FIRES THRU CARB WHEN I ADD STARTING FLLUID.

I used a bit of started fluid in air flow to quick start and nothing. it had cut off on the hwy while driving so I taught it was my pump but my pump is running because i hear it

Initially when Engine rest in d night it will not start on time the next day. Now water is found in engine oil and no traces of leakages in the radiator. Now engine rolls and not start. Oil & fuel filters changed.

when I apply pressure on my brake pedal to stop sometimes the pedal is hard to apply and the is hard to stop. Other times there no symptoms..I just replaced my brake hydra booster with a AC Delco reman. I flushed the p.strg fluid out several times, I still have the hard pedal intermittently. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

How much is the cost to repair my front door window?
My front door passenger side window has not been working since 1998-99. I had an estimate of having both front door windows fixed at over $700 each. Only the driver's side door is operable.

I have a Safari 1987, i changed my spark plugs and my car is starting to stall and cut off on me when im driving not sure what the problem is. I was told its the fuel pump but not sure!

the new blower motor burned up the day mechanic installed it (smoke filled van) Replacement is doing the same as the first before it burned, air comes though vent on high speed, then drops off and comes out the heater vent by the floor.

The old motor never did this. I'm afraid to use it, and it's useless blowing on the floor anyway (a/c itself went out over 2 years ago) Can something be done.

Thanks,

I understand this is related to the EBCM. Dealer tells me in excess of $1300 to replace. Read other blogs about some potential fixes. Trying to gather as much DIY info I can before shelling out the big bucks only to find it was some simple fix. Any and all suggestions appreciated. Thanks..Lee

this happen when i changed rotors

The van was electrically dead after driving it a half hour before. When we tried to jump it, it almost caused my buddy's truck to die and over heated the jumper cables. Took out the old battery and when installing the new one it arced and caught the side post on fire. What would cause this kind of short?

Has a 4.3 liter with steel heads and block,I replaced the head gaskets and had the heads machined,it ran fine for an hour and a half then it overheated,a shop said it either had warped heads or a cracked block.I think that possibly the torque wrench i used may be bad ,if i over torqued the head bolts could this have made the head or block crack?I didnt put a whole lot of force when i tightened them down.
