We have a refurbished battery and it won't start with a jump. Sounds like it wants to,but won't. Could it still be the battery? Its been very cold at night also, last night got down to 19 degrees. Do you have any ideas?
The fuel pump has been changed also started shutting down on me while driving
The car will not run without fixing the water pump.
There is a round metal tube that appears to be attached to the back of the thermostat housing and is located above the starter, its been leaking for a while the tube looks pretty well rotted out, and I have been told by my mechanic that it is built into the head and cannot be replaced, I find that hard to believe, the leak has ruined a starter, the car runs great, body is in pretty good shape, I don't want to junk it because I can't get the leak stopped. Can you help me. Its leaking almost a gallon a day, that is the only place it is leaking. The metal tube also has a small hose that appears to go to the heater core. Can you help.

i need to replace my starter
Bought the car a month ago.Replaced starter,valve cover gasket, plugs,coils,wires, pcv,oil & filter,t-stat & gasket. Car rolled over but wouldn't start. Checked for fuel at fuel rail, had pressure and fuel @ schrader valve. I then checked for spark. My first check revealed high spark in one coil low in the other, that's when I changed both coils and the end result was low spark at both coils and still no start. What Gives ????

I think it jumped time but the car still starts and every now and then it backfires through the intake. one morning I started blurpel and she sat there and idle was fine I let her warm up and then started for work I heard a loud pop/bang type noise and I thought oh boy she's done but she ran fine to work and after work no power and flashing engine light and she idles real rough any clue what is causing this thanks
My car has been recently been shaking a lot when idol. it only happens when i come to a stop at a stop light and it becomes harder to accelerate out of idle when green. recently, the check engine light came on so now im worried. what could be the problem with my car? just to be clear, the movement is more of a jerking motion in the engine that happens continuously until i start driving again, then it stops.
