Question Asked: Civic sedan 1.7
November 21, 2012, 07:41 AM
Installed new timing componets (all) along with front eng. mount. Customer says now has a vibe @ idle but runs great! Looked at other mounts look ok. It does vibrate very little but cant say it was not there before the work. In gear holding brk. with throttle engine doesn't move in drive or rev. like another mount is bad. 377,000 mi. In drive it is better than rev. I want to blame a mtr. mount but just don't see it. Any ideas.

Seems to be common on this truck. Anyone else had this trouble? Don't think it is computer, or circuit.

Suspect range selection sensor .. Visit qualified repair shop .. Not DIYer friendly!
Question Answered: about every other time i hit the brakes the abs activates .

When this soft of problem comes into the shop, I use a rather expensive scanner to watch ABS live data while vehicle is being test driven .. That way the systems components can actually be monitored to see the fault occurring and pinpoint the source... Suggest the same test, good luck!
Question Answered: Where is reverse light switch located

Possibly a blown fuse .. Switch is on transmission.
Question Answered: What is the output from the cigarette lighter, how many milliamps?Tocharge phone
September 26, 2016, 07:01 PM
The 'charging device' for each particular item being charged is responsible for sending the correct voltage & current 'from' the power source to said item .... Just like plugging the correct charging device into a 120 volt wall outlet inside the house... IF you use the correct charger for the item being charged then no worries! ...... As for the output of the cigarette lighter socket inside the car, there is 12 to 14 volts DC & approx 20 (fused) amps of current which = 20,000 milliamps .. That is *far more* than enough needed to charge the items you posted.
Question Answered: I have lost my only key to 2001 blazer what can I do
September 25, 2016, 07:25 PM
How much does the dealer want just to make a new key 'only' .. The dealer has access to the key cutting code for the vehicle and can make a new key on the spot .. You can call with the vin to check price of replacement key but will have to show proof of ownership to actually get the key... After that, I'd go ahead and get a spare or two made, I don't think it's all that expensive! ... Something else to consider is the security system > 'IF' it is equipped.
Question Answered: when I try to shut the car off it will not turn to the off position.

Question Answered: Replaced the starter, crank but not start, coils not firing,new sensor bcm/pcm
September 25, 2016, 06:33 PM
IF this problem arose immediately after starter was in nstalled (?) ... Suspect damaged wiring to crankshaft position sensor or the sensor itself .. Most likely was done during starter replacement as it's in the same proximity ...... Just so you'll know, after this problem is resolved, crankshaft position variation relearn 'must' be performed since the crankshaft sensor was replaced!
Question Answered: What causes water being in #2 and 3 spark plug well
September 25, 2016, 06:24 PM
That depends on which engine is under the hood and if you mean 'clear water' OR engine coolant in the # 2 & 3 spark plug tubes (?)
