I was driving down thw road and my 1987 toyota camery stopped running has to do with the spark can u help


You'll have to get the ignition system checked.
This car uses a distributor, so it could be anything from a problem inside the distributor, to a failed coil, to no voltage to either part.

Why does my 1998 sebring idle fine but sputter badly under load.


Does it use spark plug wires or individual ignition coils for the each plug?. My 98 intrepid uses coils and occasionally I have to change them out cause it would start to miss when normal temperature was achieved. If it uses wires, try replacing them, along with the spark plugs.

I have a 1987 honda crx and for some reason when i exceed 55mph for a long period of time it cuts off. does anyone know what this could be from??


When your Honda cuts off there is alot of reason it does that,one possiblity it doesnt see a crank signal and its breaking down,or the cam signal both of these are in the distributor, or the rotor can be slipping out of position,(distributor rotor). or the ignitor breaking down,to a ignition switch the electrical componenet breaking down,to even a plugged fuel filter causing the vehicle to starve for fuel.Just for maintance concern replace the fuel filter.3_25_2012_11_22_31_pm.jpg

I have a 1987 300zx turbo. i was driving about 30mph and it started to stall. then it picked back up then died out. and would not crank back up. the next day it cranked up fine and drove about 2 blocks...


It's possible the fuel filter is clogged up. If it has been a while since you changed the fuel filter, it may need to be changed. It is either located in the tank or between the tank and carbeurator. You may also have gotten bad gas or water in the gas. Check this also.

I have a 230E Mercedes benz 1987 with an engine 1985 230E the car vibrates violently when stopping on (d)rive gear weak torque on the first gear.


The heavy vibration during braking sounds like it is warped disc rotors. This car has disc brakes on all wheels, so it could be one or all of them causing the problem. One way to identify whether it is the front or the rear is to observe the steering wheel while braking and feeling the vibrations. If the steering wheel is shimmying at the same frequency as the vibration, it is almost certain that it is the front. If not it is the rear. Do a visual inspection of your pads and rotors. You will probably see scoring in the rotors. It is a fairly easy do-it-yourself job with improved braking and that smooth Mercedes ride we all love.

1987 Dodge Caravan getting poor gas milage


If you suddenly are getting poor gas mileage your O2 (oxygen) sensor may have failed. The O2 sensor helps dictate how rich or lean the fuel mixture is. If it fails the engine's computer defaults to a rich mixture so not to burn a valve or run too hit. This can be checked and if need be easily replaced. And yes if the van is over-do for a routine tune-up this is always a good investment. Make sure to check the air filter too, if she's dirty the engine will starve for air and get poor mileage.

I hope this may have assited you,

2000 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 dies want idle


This has happened all of a sudden?
It is sounding like it is starving for fuel...

First we will check for bad fuel. A GOOD Gasline Antifreeze can get the impurities and water out of the Gas. Get a bottle and pour the whole thing in the gas tank, bounce the car around to mix it with the fuel. Start it and let it run for a little while so see if it smooths out. If does not help then look at replacing the fuel filter as it may be clogged.

Is it a Fuel Choke


the problem you are stating here could be a combination of problems, meaning it could not be solve with a single solution.

based from your description, it could be starving fom gas .

it would starve from gas if the filter is clogged( fuel filter) then before the carburator, there is still a strainer. might be a good place to check that one too.

then the tank as your mechanic has stated, could be dirty and needs to go down.
another thing to look at the tank is the water. since it is getting cold, water condensate couls slip in specially on cold weather.

then the carburator itself. it may have a clogged cavity or dirt could have accumulated and could not be solve by spraying with carburator cleaners.

try those things first and thanks for asking me,

Is it a Gas Choke


how many miles on this car? providing the choke is all the way open at operating temps and the engine is still not smooth and the tune-up parts are new, i would search for a vacuum leak somewhere on the intake manifold and carb. using carb cleaner with engine running spray around intake and lower carb if idle changes, you have found a leak. make sure the choke is working properly!! dirty fuel tank is possible but not likely, with a tune-up i would assume the fuel filter was changed. was it dirty? was the timing checked? does car run well at speed driving down the road?
