I had this problem on my daughters 2004 sunfire. I found a new switch on ebay and tried to do it myself. I found a website that had instructions. I dont remember what it was but you can find it if you look hard enough. I just followed the instructions. I had to remove the cover under the steering wheel where your knees are. then I tried everything to pop it out but couldn't. It said to drill out a pin(key type thing) so I really looked at the ignition switch(the new switch helped me see how it worked better) and found what they were talking about then just started drilling, I admitt that I thought I was really messing the thing up but I was out of options at that point, I broke about 4 or 5 bits because of the impossible angle, oh yeh I bought a right angle drill to do the job. I just found the artical. You only need this if your key wont turn the ignition. I forgot about that. Well give it a try its not as hard as it seems and I did a little damage but it didnt affect the ignition operation.

1990 Subaru Legacy will crank but not fire up. Just got it for free. It was running great, then it started running rough for a few days. It sat for about a month and now will not start. Got it for free....

Generally it is a matter of the easy/cheap approach first. Replace the fuel filter if you can followed by spark plugs. Since it ran fine initially then degraded it is likely that this is a fuel delivery or spark to ignition problem. Beyond these relatively cheap fixes the issue may entail a fuel pump or ignition coil(s). Good luck, these are quite durable and dependable vehicles generally.

What is entailed in changing out ignition switch ?

Hi, the switch is on the column below the knee panel. You need to remove the knee panel and maybe loosen the column from the dash to get sufficient access to the switch. The switch has 2 connectors on it. Remove the smaller one first--it has 2 tabs holding it. Then remove the larger one. The switch is held on by 2 (5/16") screws on the left side of the column. The actuator rod is stuck into the side of the switch. Pull the switch off the rod and reverse procedure to install new switch. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

What does a 54,000 maintenace entail for 2006 accent

You need to flush your radiator and coolant system out. Change your transmission fluid and filter. It wouldn't hurt to change your spark plugs and wires, but this is usually 60,000-70,000 miles. Check all your fluids. Grease all your axle points as well. Check your wheel alignment.

I am working on 95 ford truck f 700 no spark from coil so changed the coil still nothing and 11 volts going in have any ideas?

The most common no spark problem on these trucks is the ignition module.
These are mounted on the distributor with 2 small bolts. You may need to turn the distributor to access the bolts if yours is a V8. So you may need to reset your timing afterwards.If you do not have a timing light very carefully mark the position of the distributor first.
You only need to loosen the bolt at the base of the distributor to allow it to turn.
If the module doesn't cure the problem you may need to replace the pickup coil inside the distributor itself. This will entail distributor disassembly to replace.

Volvo s 60 2.5t time for regular service what does this entail

Biggest thing that needs to be serviced at that mileage (outside of regular oil change and hose/belt inspection) is the timing belt (and probably should change the water pump while in there).
