SOURCE: clutch pedal went to the floor but did not come

there is a plastic clip that connects the clutch pedal to the rod that goes to the master cylinder, chances are that it let go. Bad thing is that it is only available from GM along with the rod. It is around 50

SOURCE: My car won't start, I

need more information, does it crank, and not start? Or no crank? If it cranks and does not start, the first suspect would be a crank sensor, they do that...if it does not crank, the battery has to be charged first to get it to crank-we can go on from there...

The carburetor spits when its flooded - so something must be wrong inside it. Since this is the second time it has stalled when turning left it appears that the level in the bowl is higher than it should so the mixture is way richer : turning left pushes the fuel to the left in the bowl, making the momentary level even higher over the jets so the mixture gets so rich that it can't be lighted anymore so the engine stalls.
You will have to dismantle the carburetor, check the float for leaks and readjust it before reassembling it. While you are there check the size of the jets, they might be larger than normal.

SOURCE: my clutch works sometimes and sometimes it

A clutch that's failing doesn't behaves like that - it slowly starts slipping until it fails completely and definitely. If it would break suddenly (like when the pressure plate would snap) the noise and the vibrations it would generate would be unbearable.
No, in your case something is failing inside the transmission/gearbox - most likely in the command forks and their locking pins. The gearbox will have to taken off the car and dismantled to investigate and fix that, and it will be expensive.

SOURCE: 2006 Charger trunk popper won't pop with the key fob and the in-car button, what should I look for?

I had this problem also, does your third brake light come on? Also is your trunk light functional? If not there is a rubber boot from the car to the trunk lid, that those wires
run through make sure that the wires arent broken in there. That rubber boot on
my 06' Charger over time curled towards the window and got pinched and severed
all the wires. I soldered them and replaced the blown fuses in the trunk fuse box.
Problem solved.

Clutch pedal straight to floor


If you put the trans in neutral and depress the clutch pedal it should still start.
The clutch is hydraulic, so there should be something connecting the pedal to the master cyl and the slave cyl to the clutch disk.

1993 nissan pick up won't start


Possibly a bad connection on the positive side coming from the battery or a weak ground. Check where the leads join the terminal clamps. Has the battery been verified as good? It doesn't take a lot of amps to run lights but it does to turn over the engine. Jump starting it does not require a fully charged battery.

Went to the mall and got back to car and car wouldn't start. Had to call roadside assistance for a jump. Got home, turned car off and car won't restart. No interior lights.


Sounds like a dead battery, the fact that you were able to drive it all the way home after being jump started means that your alternator is working fine, but as soon as you turned it off there is no way to restart it since the battery is bad. Take out the battery and go have it tested at your local auto parts store to be sure, but that is most likely the cause.

MY 2002 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN, 3.3 started out by stalling. we took it for diagnostic, mechanic said catalytic convertor bad. changed that and coil. changed map sensor, both O2 sensors. took it to another...


does the van stall going down the road or at idle? the won't change gears at 4000 rpm and the no start condition unless disconnect the negative cable sounds more like a computer problem. when the cable is diconnected the ECM and the TCM have to go thru a relearn process which can be some of your issues. have your mechanic do a quick learn on the trans module to see if it helps the shifting problem. the ECM on the other hand can throw out codes that can make you chase your tail and end up replacing every sensor and still have the smae problem. you may want to check for corrosion at the ECM connections.

2000 grand jeep cherokee limited 4.7 liter, v8, at first wouldn't start rplaced battery because dead and then replaced starter. ran ok for a couple days. last night started it and hard time with it...


Hi
Pop into to your local garage and have a diagnostic test carried out.
Listen to the advise given. It may save you lots of money, especially if you start the "guessing" game.
It does sound like a part may be blocked or failed though, but the sytem needs to be tested thoroughly first.
Good luck
Roger
