Important for taking things apart

Always take photo's of things you want to take apart before you do, this will allow you to see what they should be like when you put them back together.

I have a 2001 Mazda millennia and I recently replaced my knock sensor. One of the steps was to loosen the shift cable to get to bolt. When I finished and put every thing back the transmission would not shift any further than reverse could anyone tell me if this is adjustable if so how do I adjust

If it wasn't a problem before you touched it, I would suggest that you didn't put the cable back where it was before. Have a look for old marks or dirt buildup to see if any have moved from before. Its possible that the shift lever moved when you removed the cable and now its out of alignment. I would loosen off the cable, put the drive into park and then tighten up the cable again and see if that works. You may have to play with the cable to get it in the correct position. It always pays to use a marker pen or take a photo of anything that you are unfamiliar with before you take it apart so that you can confirm you have put it back the same way.

You could have a bad spark plug wire, not allowing all your cylinders to fire. make sure the spark plugs are gapped correctlly, they don't always come pre-gapped,check your timing, and your firing order, if just one sparkplug wire is out of place it can make your car sound like its falling apart. good luck!

My 2001 Sienna shakes when I apply the brake. I don't know the problem. It passed inspection so I am assuming it's not the brake. Please advise.

The car isn't driven when inspected

Your only choice is to recall, if you had the
brakes apart every year, to clean off rust,
inspect,lube & if necessary machine or replace

You can not drive year after year & not have
braking issues.

Some times the work you pay for isn't done
correctly & they put issues in there.

Never assume anything in life

Always inspect or test things,& trust no one
