Question Asked: I have a P0300 code for a random misfire.
September 09, 2011, 06:42 PM
I did a tune up and all was well. Shortly after I developed a random misfire. New plugs wires, fuel filter. It is a coil over system so its not there. The only thing I can find is the fuel pressure is low. Around 48 psi instead of 62 psi. I didnt get this filter on wrong thanks to the little arrow thats points that way ---->. I have wondered it the fuel trim adjusted so far out with the old plugs that it is just relearning but how long should that take? Could my fuel pump really just be putting this low pressure out all of a sudden? I have stumped myself.
Question Asked: How do I replace the pitman arm shaft seal?

Pitman arm shaft seal is leaking. I need a part explosion so I can have a better idea how its in there. Have done plenty of pitman arms but not the seal. Can I do it with the gear box i the truck?

if you jump started the car wrong anything could have happened. You need to find a mechanic. Just to much for me to try to walk you through. try checking the systems out that the fuses are blowing for.

Question Answered: Help with radio/stero problems.
April 25, 2012, 04:01 AM
You either have a bad radio or a wiring issue. Can you pull the radio out and inspect the wire harness for loose or damaged wires?
Question Answered: How do i set the clock?? has factory installed radio with single cd.

Im guessing you have looked in the owners manual. I cant find the procedure to do it.Will it not keep time even after you pull the fuse at 11:59? You might have a wiring or radio issue.
Question Answered: is there any thing wrong with my oil IN MY VAN
April 25, 2012, 03:50 AM
I would worry if the oil light came on while the engine was running. Otherwise as long as you are reading dipstick right and it shows oil in the hash marks you should be ok.
Question Answered: How to diagnose a loud rear end whine
April 25, 2012, 03:48 AM
Several things could cause a whine noise. New tires can be bad. Your best bet is to take it back to who did the work and have them inspect the work. Does the noise change or go away while turning? It could be a bearing.
Question Answered: About to purchase a 2008 CLK350 with just 19000 miles.

Does it seem to still be leaking? Could just be a design flaw that even MBZ can have from time to time. If engine is clean I wouldnt worry too much.

Car Review: 1990 Mazda RX-7
July 10, 2011, 09:46 PM
This is a very unique vehicle. The rotory engine operates better at higher rpm than a conventional piston engine. Another highlight is the rear wheel drive that it has as rear wheel drive is getting harder and harder to find. Comfort was second to speed and looks in design. Also not the best car to transporting ppl or groceries. If you want a sports car, this is the car for you.
