I fried my fan control module along with the plugs that go to it. I know what happened, and already have a new fcm, I just can't find new/used pig tails to fix the wiring. Have some ideas where to look? Tried all the junk yards around me I can think of, and dealers/part stores can't get them anymore

replaced mass air sensor still have same problem

this happened very suddenly, just got in the car after I had my starter replaced and its up there! very annoying when driving,

I replaced 2 welshplugs already and seems now I need to replace another one. Even afterwards the light justs flashes all the time. I replaced the sensor at the bottle as well. Earlier today after a lot of driving I opened the bonnet and water was leaking a lot from the bottle.Seems like water pressure pushing water out by the bottle. When I opened the cap after some time the water gushed out. Please help. I also changed the cold start sensor but it struggles to start in the morning.

I scanned for codes and the ecm came up would that have something to do wit it only starting wit the check engine light being on

i turn the key and the lights and everything come on and then it doesnt turn over like i am not pushing down the clutch all the way when i first got it it would do it the odd time but hardly ever what could be my problem?

I bought the car and put. A new engine In was driving fine then I parked it for 30 minutes T store came back out and it wouldn't start I changed fuel pump fuel filter chech fuel lines and its getting fuel all the way to the injectors but not any further what can I do

is it a hard repair to do. Its just broke and now stays on the floor
