The only place you are going to find the exact repair manuels are at a dealership. Part stores manuels do not go that in depth on wiring diagrams.

It sounds as if your problem is in the ignition module mounted on the side of the distrubtor. Inside the distrubtor is what is called a relucter plate that rotates back and for to change the timing. There are several small wires underneather it, red and yellow Sometimes these wires will break and then you replace the reluctor plate.

1970/ linkage out of order need diagram showing gear shift tabs manual transmission
I would suggest getting the service manual, that is what I do with my vehicles and when you think about the price of a mechanic is a small price to pay for having the same information dealer mechanic would use at your finger tips.
If you need anything else let me know.

2002 windstar transmission schematic

I am assuming you need a schematic for this and that you've check all of the other more common things like broken linkages, low transmission fluid, etc. Other than the wiring diagrams that are found in the Haynes or Chiltons manuals, you would have to get a service manual from a dealer.There just isn't much electrical inside a transmission though that isn't covered in the wiring diagrams found in these manuals,which can be found at your local parts store.

I need a picture or diagram of a 1994 Cadillac DeVille 2 door 4.6 Ltr Serpintine Belt

you can sometimes find these online, but a lot of the time the diagrams from the internet are listed under the wrong year or model of car. The easiest way to be sure you have the correct diagrams for your car is to buy a Haynes manual for it. These have all of the diagrams that you will need, as well as specific directions and helpful hints about doing the work yourself, and checking your work for accuracy. In the future, you will also find that the Haynes manual is great for diagnosing and resolving other issues you may have with your car. It is written by mechanics, based on a total tear down and rebuild of the car, and includes lists of common problems and fixes, engine schematics and diagrams, and step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose and repair every stock part on your car. I have not been without one in 10+ years that I have owned and been working on my own cars.
Haynes manuals are available at most auto-parts stores and some larger bookstores. They are specific to the make and model and year of your car, so the information is always spot-on.

Wat is a electrical diagram

An electrical diagram is a schematic of the electrical system, it shows what system and wiring is connected to whatever else. It won't show the car itself, just the wiring system and each component that wiring is attached to. If you go to autozone . com and register for free, then login to your account, the choose your car, then click on view repair manual, then you have a free repair manual which also includes free electrical diagram schematics.

Hi Chrishuhagen-
Here is the diagram you requested. If you need other assistance or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an old VW mechanic, and I had (among others) a '71 Type 1 pop-top camper that I acquired with a blown engine. Built a stroker motor for it tuned for torque, and my friends redubbed it the "Ferrari Housecar!" It would cruise at 90 mph all day long, with plenty of pedal left! (And still get 30 mpg!)
Great cars!

This has been resampled to a smaller size so it would meet the file size limitations of the FixYa blog, but if you send me an e-mail at I will reply with the full size diagram as an attachment.

Please don't forget to rate my assistance----your rating is my only compensation for providing you this help!

Good luck with the electrical problems, and thank you!
