Question Asked: no start
October 05, 2010, 08:25 PM
friends car was starting and when driving or just idling it would just stall after a while. I noticed that the tack would drop to 0 and I would step on the gas and it would run. When ever it stalls it starts right back up. I sprayed some carb cleaner in the throttle body and cleaned the plate and body with a toothbrush, now it turns over but doesnot start or even hit. What can be wrong. Thank you

Question Answered: How much labor time is estimated to take out 2 stuck spark plugs?
June 07, 2015, 07:17 AM
You may have to soak the sparkplug by spraying som PB blaster then they might break loose. I had a chevy suburban with a 5.7L eng. and customer brought it to me after another mechanic tried to get the plug out. I had to take the head off and heated it, it still wouldn't budge. It was cheaper for me and my customer to just purchase another head and put it on.

Question Answered: crank sensor
August 03, 2010, 09:25 PM
start your vehical up and when it stalls take a hose and spray cool water on the crank sensor for 10 seconds or so. Then see if it will start, if it does then the crank sensor is bad. Don't laugh I did this on a Buick lesabra that no one could figure out and as soon as the cranksensor was replaiced the car never stalled again. Hope this helps

Question Answered: Overheating!!! One fan not working.. could it be why?
July 20, 2010, 06:04 AM
If your vehical was designed with two cooling fans then you will have to have both of them operating properly or you will experience some overheating. I would also check the thmostate to make sure it is not sticking shut. Hope this helps.
