If it is a manual transmission the reason why it could be stalling in between gear changes it could mean that the clutch isn't holding on to the flywheel. Normally do to a worn out clutch, wrong type of clutch, or there is some sort of leakage or fluid that is going into the clutch thus soaking the friction material to loose it's holding ability.

SOURCE: Spark plug gap on a 1992 Gmc Sonoma 4.3L V6 FI

Usually somewhere on the engine or in the engine compartment, there is a sticker with the engine specifications. The spark plug gap should be included. If not .032 or an inch should be close.
Good luck

SOURCE: The heater still won't work after I changed the thermostat on my

Get a female garden hose adapter from the local hardware store. Disconnect the heater hose from behind the fan pulley and attach the hose connection. Disconnect the other heater hose behind the alternator, aim it towards the ground and flush water through the heater core. This worked on my truck.

The 99 GMC, when it acts up, check whether it has fuel and/or spark. It could be related to fuel pressure, available electrical power, ignition component/s.

SOURCE: How do you replace the rear u joint on a 99' gmc

Mark the driveshaft and yoke in a manner that will allow you to reassemble it in the same orientation that it's in now. This is done to avoid driveline vibrations. Next remove the 4 7/16" head bolts on the driveshaft yoke. Use a lone screw driver or pry bar to pop the driveshaft off the yoke and slide the other end out of the transmission. Using a u-joint tool press out the old u-joint and press in the new one. You could bring this to a machine shop or a mechanic and have them do it for you if you don't have the correct tools. I think autozone may rent a ball joint press out for free. Next reassemble it orientated the same way you took it off.

Mazda bravo b2600 1997 2.6 lt petrol


Hello Nick,

20 years... 200,000 km is not excessive... The models we have here in the USA... DO NOT MATCH your "bravo"...

They do that to keep us apart... and all 7 of my steering wheels are on the wrong side ... (down f/10... getting old here
(even the Austin Healey BJ8 & Jaguar V12 convertible)).

but we (USA) do have A B2300, ( also B3000 & 4000 )
F2.5 "gas" engine... FUEL Injected (see injector below)

If your engine pulls and idles SMOOTHLY you might
consider saving ALL your dyno-tune $$$...
and taking over the "service" yourself.

We have parts stores & muffler shop that read
our CODES for FREE... (just watch your wallet).

There is BIG $$$ to be saved if you pay attention to scheduled FLUID & FILTER changes... Particularly RADIATOR, CLUTCH & BRAKE.

I'm suggesting for the price of you "tune" you can
buy a compression gauge, stethoscope, torque-wrench, some SPARK Plugs & be ready for that TRANSMISSION JACK...
when the clutch wears out...

We don't do transmissions WITHOUT a tranny-jack
BECAUSE... the I/O (input/output) bearing will get
sacrificed when the input shaft is left holding the
ENTIRE WEIGHT of the transmission
(IMPROPER HANDLING = lost money).

Always chock your wheels...
Pressure test your cooling system, change your wipers...
check brake pad wear... & never sleep with anyone crazier than yourself (floss teeth).

My experience with the average "DEALER"... was
FIX one... BREAK two.

I simply couldn't afford it...!!

Increased fuel consumption


First-- fire your repair shop & get one that
listens to your explanation of vehicle problems

They have to diagnose the vehicle, not just tell
you no codes are present.

The check light will leave codes stored

Spark Plugs don't exactly make for a tune-up

For over 30 years the car computer does the tuning

The upstream or front oxygen sensors should be replaced
on all vehicles at 100,000 miles,was that done

Was fuel trim checked
Was any scan tool data looked at
Was the car road tested with scanner

Don't need 12 oz of injector cleaner in 15
gallons of fuel,that won't do a thing

There are at least a dozen tests that should be done,
at least once a year, on all vehicles,not wait until you
have a problem

The main theme on this web site,seems to be a
deteriorating repair shop capability & the vehicle
owners ability to communicate with them, as a result
of decades of distrust & dislike, as well as no understanding
of test equip costs & parts costs

The shaking could simply be from using the wrong oil &
not changing it 4 times a year or more & now you have
variable valve timing issues

So many things to to be checked out

Started running bad when I turned on the heater


misfire can be caused by a few things. weak spark, low fuel pressure, to much fuel, vaccum leak. a simple check on this engine is to remove vaccum line from fuel pressure regulator, on fuel rail, driver side of engine. if you crank engine, and fuel leaks out vaccum port on regulator, its ruptured and causing rich fuel mixture. try that and let me know.

Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

I have a 1994 Isuzu Trooper (3.2 L V6 DOHC) with 180,000 miles on it. Recently, the engine has developed a ticking in the lower end, as well as low oil pressure ( at idle around 5 to 10 psi). Recently the...


It appears that the main bearings are failing, as well as the rods bearings and maybe a wrist pin too.

In other words, it's worn out.

If you still like the vehicle and want to keep it, a warrantied used engine is probably the best solution.

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.
3 Inspect Fuel Filter -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug -- Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injector -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainerat.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.

96 Ford Explorer is studdering (misfiring) when going up hills


I have the same exact problem that just started immediately AFTER I got a tranny service where they changed the Trans Fluid, Trans Filter, Fuel Filter. Took it back and they say nothing is wrong with it. Took it to the dealer thinking I could get some REAL answers... they just told me to replace spark plugs, wiring & coil, for $900. Only studders when quickly accelerating above 40mph. I've check other forums, they say to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor. Haven't tried it yet. This seems the easiest before replacing spark plugs. Any other suggestions anyone?? Please.....
