Had been running, turned off one day then next day tried to start, starter did engage(turn) but the solenoid did not advance the gear to engage the flywheel. Pulled starter and had the entire assembly checked, came out OK. Changed the starter relay, still same problem. Battery is only 3Mo old and fully charged.

whiney noise. its an 86 2.8 ltr. bought as a fixer upper. not sure where to go from here has spark? and fuel? hard for me to tell because of the initial problem.

Took it to a repair shop and they said I need new lifters and a couple of the rocker arms are broken. Also in my radiator is sludge and clear water. I keep this car serviced. What happened? The repair shop says the entire engine must come out to get to the lifters?
Help! Can this be right? 2K?

i think its the rocker arm but told that they arent adjustable in 3.4 ltr v6 gm motor in 1995. what is it and what could i do

I have a 1991 Pontiac Firebird V8 would a problem with the steering column or a bad steering column cause the car not to start , like I can turn the key but no noise comes from the engine but the radio and lights will come on.

I had replaced the plugs, wires, did oil change, new battery, air filter, oil filter. It winds the starter but will not fire! Anyone know if this is because of it not getting fuel or? It ran before I parked it, just had a dead battery and just now decided to work on it :/

Had to replace water pump and now hear a thumping noise and car don't want to stay running? Whats going on? Please help.

And now car dont want to stay running. What is going on? Please help.

It made a noise it locked up I turned,it off back on it went,.into,hear but started jump n around then nothing in,all gears.

Service engine light on, sent car to 2 places that couldn't find the issue for a 304 code.3rd person/mechanic scanned the car and came up with 304 code and the words crankshaft sensor, The car runs good, no misfiring, everything is as it should be and is smooth. So we got a gm sensor and put it on , erased the codes and 14 miles later light back on in the car, re-scan and same error code and msg. I a sticker cannot be gotten because of the car light being on.

I've cleaned the IAC and the air intake what else could be causing the problem

I put new clutch pressure plate throw out bearing pilot bearing slave cylinder and master cylinder. I bench bled the system and put it all together and I have no pressure on pedal

I am low on gear oil and need to add gear oil

Repair, or replace. Whichever is cheaper.
