    Nothing wrong with battery or alternator (alternator is 5 months old) All fuses are sound, fusable links on the left fender by the battery show no signs of damage and are solid. All lights and electronics are bright and show no decrease in intensity. Starter cranks nice and strong. All diagnostics in digital dash show all is fine except for the big red "Power Loss" message across my speedometer.

    This happend instantly. It did not happen over a period of time. There is NO power to either side of the coil with the ignition switch on. All belts are fine (timing belt observed being engaged and working through inspection port while cranking the engine)

It may be the alternator going. If u have a battery light comming on and other power sources weakening or cutting out and ur car dies then that usually means alternator. If u can get it to a parts store like checker or advanced they usually do a free alternator and battery test right there under the hood to let u know if one or both are bad. And if it's the alternator i believe those are pretty easy to do.

Fix a car that wont start but turns over good no fire

How to find a problem-- is what your asking

If you have no vehicle experience, you personally
don't,you pay a repair shop for that

Can you check for spark,injector pulse,use a volt meter,
check fuel pressure & more ?

Is the battery any good & been tested?

Did you check for OBD Codes ?

Like almost all folks that come here the last couple months,
the vehicle,year,make & model, is a secret,why is that?

Wat a useless Fukien site this is

You just fail to understand that the site is just a
free worldwide chat room or forum

You need to fault the web site owners & designers,
as no one coming here has a clue as to the service

The suggestions come only from folks like yourself

You either ask or answer a question,there is no web site
or company input or data base, such as a professional
repair shop or automotive tech hot line you pay big bucks for,
if you work at a shop & need help

It is after all, free,so there is the answer
Free is whatever you get in this world

I don't know who big nate is

Hi Hansel, I'm just guessing, but think you may be a youngster? If your folks have banned you from reading Big Nate, ask them to explain why. If they tell you because they say so, ask them for a proper explanation, so you can learn the reason for the ban. If your folks will not allow you to read but wont give an explanation, you need to prove to them they can trust you. If you need to contact me again, just answer this and I'll know. Regards John

My oil pressure low light keeps comming on and the engine starts to run hot. we changed oil and used the marvel mistery oil.

well there comes a time in the life of everything when it is just beyond help. it has done its job and needs to be retired, marvel mystery oil notwithstanding. think about it, if that stuff really worked no one would ever buy a new car, just keep dumping in that mystery stuff and keep on truckin. you may want to consider finding a similar engine, albeit with lower mileage, in a junkyard and paying someone to take the old one out and put the newer one in. there are at least two folks running ads for this service on my local big city craigslist, for sale auto parts, and having done it once or twice myself I would gladly pay another person 750 bucks to tear an engine out and put another one in.

Can you replace the front left window lift motor with out replacinging the regulator ????

You folks really need to learn to give more detailed info when you need help. The answer is, "it depends". If you have the small Cherokee, the answer is no. If you have the Grand Cherokee, the answer is yes. You will have to remove the motor and regulator to get them apart.

My 1994 Honda Civic DX hatchback's engine light turned on. Are there any troubleshooting tips i should try? besides the obvious loose gas cap.

well you could stop at an autozone or advance and one of their folks can attach an analyzer to it and give you the error codes. that help is worth exactly what you pay for it but it is better than simply looking at a warning light and trying to guess what it means. or looking at a warning light and asking someone else to guess what it means.

I asked a question and no one answered. Just a

I'm sorry that you didn't receive an answer to your headlight problem but you need to bear in mind that all of the experts here give up their time freely to help others. We have our own lives to lead so can't always answer immediately, and experts only attempt an answer if they have a fair idea of what the solution is.

Your question wasn't answered either because the correct expert hadn't yet seen it, or because what you described didn't make sense. Look at your original question:-

It was listed under Mazda 323, so describing headlights going up and down made no sense. It's only with your churlish complaint that the world now realises it's actually an early MX-5 with pop-up headlamps. I realise that you called it a Miata in the text of your question, but when experts scan for questions it's usual to pay most attention to the heading. In any case, the Miata is unknown to many of us as it was only ever sold in North America. Unless you're Japanese the rest of the world knows it as an MX-5.

I respectfully suggest that before you bite the hands of those who may offer help that you check your facts are correct. Folks here genuinely are supremely generous and forgiving so perhaps if you re-post your question under the correct model heading then you'll maximise your chances of getting a solution.

As for the spammer you attracted that's an unfortunate part of this site being freely open to all. Nobody forced you to come here and if you don't like it then you have the free choice to take your MX-5 to a garage and pay to have it fixed or buy a Haynes Manual and solve the problem for yourself.

Change oil

There's several answers to that question. The "best" oil is what the manufacturer recommends in the owner's manual. You can also make that decision based on several things including the type of driving you do, the temperature you most operate in, and personal preference. I have found that over the years simply using the recommended weight provides the best resutls.

Some folks use synthetic oil because they feel they get better performance. Personally I don't use synthetic oil in a car that didn't come from the factory with it. I've run several cars well over 200,000 miles by following the owner's manual without a hint of trouble.
