    1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab; I tilted the center console into the up position, the 3rd time in 13 years, but this time I can't put it back down. I hear it clicking in the driver side when I rock it back and forth. Can't find anything to depress or unstick.

The button that releases the top cover also pulls the pin that holds the cover upright pin may have ncome unhooked from the rod. If so shimming the pin may be the quick fix.

Mine is doing the same thing, what i found out is that if you put one hane on it, on the opposite top rear corner and as you are pulling down also pull towards the other corner, in other words, sitting in the drivers seat you will place your hand on the top of the console between the pass. seat and the console, now put pressure on the con by pulling it toward yourself, now down at the same time.

Hi my name is Allen!

The most likely cause is the lock that holds it in place is sticking, you can try to lube it with a gel lubricant and see if that helps. If this doesn't work unfortunately it will have to be replaced.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

I got it unstuck using a narrow strip of metal and the help of an assistant. I removed the screw and the vinyl cover from the pair of black structural metal slats that support the console on the driver side With a penlight look between the slats below the pivot point of the driver side joint for a shiny steel hub that looks like the head of a pawl or a pin. You can see it track toward the rear and halt as you pull the console forward. I stuck the metal strip into the joint and pushed on the pawl while the assistant rocked the console. I think it was pushing it leftward that cleared it. My assistant thinks otherwise...

How to remove the starter


Disconnect battery, block rear wheels, jack up vehicle . there are only 2 bolts holding starter up, make sure truck is not hot..sorry should have said that first...any how I always cut a 4in x 4 in block of wood because I never seem to have truck high enough,,,,and how remove 2 bolts...DO NOT LET IT FALL....gently lower starter,,,there are 2 wires that come off..one goes to center bolt and second smaller wire goes onto small bolt....make sure you know which bolt to put smaller wire onto....once your done DOUBLE check and make sure the wires are not touching any thing else. ( can short out starter)....clean off bolts and put starter back in...and replace bolts....double check wires....I always do a start before lowering....once your sure you got it right lower truck and remove blocks....just a note I would NEVER buy one from junk yard or remaned.....better to have a brand new one with warranty...and allot of places like advance will give military discounts and a discount if ordered online and pick up same day at store.....GOOD LUCK

Just replaced my thermostat on 2004 Impala. Temperature guage goes from cold to hot then goes back down. Heat seems to work when the temperature guage is lower but as soon as it goes up the heat turns...


i going to assume you have the 3.4L or 3.8 L motor
these motors are notorious for trapping air in coolant system
which sounds like what your problem is
not a problem tho they have bleeder screw built into them
there should be one or two bleeders (depending on model year and motor size)
i think yours should have two
one should be on top of thermostat housing
other one right above water pump on bypass tube
open one bleeder at time with motor running until u see just water and no air
repeat with other bleeder
continue to work back and forth between the two bleeders until thermostat opens
then work back and forth a couple times after thermostat opens
keep checking radiator add coolant as needed

I have a 1986 Celica GT, tryig to set the timing without the cover plate is there any marks on the pulleys to line up to get TDC?


remove number 1 spark plug and install a long 1/4 inch extension. into plug hole and slowly turn engine by hand until the extension goes all the way up and starts to go back down then back up just a hair and this will be tdc.

well if it has been exposed to extreme heat or cold your looking most likely at a fuel control relay or ecu fuel control relay is under the passenger side of the center consloe and the ecu is under the dash also if its a turbo it could be the resister pack good luck
