Question about 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Wheel locks I am trying to find a website where I can order some wheel locks but I am turning up empty handed, can you help. I need 12mm 1.25 hex socket lug nut or wheel locks, open end and tapered. I can't use regular lug nuts or splines cause the original lugs on my car fit snugly in the hole and you can't fit a impact wrench socket in there so the wheel lock key has to fit into the lug not around it. Think you can help me?

    There is nothing on the wheel to indicate who makes it. I went to this one tire place that I have done business with for a long time that sells tires/wheels and everything else for it but they can't locate the ones I need either.

    The best thing to do is contact a custom wheel dealer, they have access to hundreds of different wheel locks, I am sure they can help u.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?

Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

My steering wheel locks up when I put it in park, and when I try to restart it, it won't crank. The key won't turn. What do I need to do?

grab the steering wheel and turn it left or to the right and sometimes you might have to put a little effort in it but one way the steering wheel will move about 1-2" and as you are moving it with one hand take the other hand and turn the key and it should turn a lot easier.this is a common thing and if you can try to have the wheels straight and try not to use the steering wheel to get in or out of the vehicle and the wheel should not lock and make it so hard on have to use both hands at the same time one moving the wheel and the other one turning the key but start moving the wheel in the in direction that it moves the most then turn the key.

Don't panic. It is in a bind. Try to turn the wheel as your turn the key. Jiggle should free up.

How do u change the timing belt on a 1990 4 cylinder honda accord?

Disconnect the wire harness at the distributor.Remove the spark plug closest to the drivers side front tire. Place the palm of your hand over the valve covers empty spark plug hole and have a helper crank the motor over until air pressure pushes past your the palm of your hand. Next, look at the cam shaft wheel and note the direction that the arrow is pointing, the arrow should be pointing straight up IN RELATION TO THE ENGINE not the earth. If it is not, you will need to manually rotate the engine till the cam wheel is infact pointing straight up. Next, Jack up the front of the car and support it with jack stand and remove the front drivers side tire.Next, support the weight of the engine with a floor jack remove the motor mount closest to the drivers side tire To remove it you will need a deep 17mm socket on a heavy duty breaker bar. Next, loosen and remove the power steering belt and alternator belts. To loosen and remove the belts you will need a 10mm wrench and a 12mm wrench. And also a 14mm or 15mm wrench. Next, use a 19mm socket AND an air powered IMPACT wrench to remove the bolt holding on the crank shaft pulley. Next, remove the crankshaft pulley. Next, use a 10mm wrench and/or 10mm socket and remove the bolts holding the plastic engine side cover. Next, loosen the 14mm or 15mm bolt which secures the 2 belt tension wheels. Next, LOOSEN the 10mm bolt that is on the balance shaft tensioner. The balance shaft is the cogged wheel with a small timing mark dot on the side of the wheel. Next, loosen the 10mm bolt on the timing belt tensioner. It's obvious what wheel is the timing belt tensioner. Next, remove the 12mm bolt on the back side of the block (near the balance shaft) a little bit of oil will drip out, this 12mm bolt will allow a long bolt to be inserted into a recessed channel of the balance shaft. This recessed channel is needed to lock the balance shaft in place. A bolt from the air conditioner works great for locking the balance shaft in place. You're basically just pushing the bolt in a hole to keep the balance shaft from spinning.890a27a.jpg Next, remove both the balance shaft belt and timing belt. Then reverse the procedure to complete the new belt installation. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!! PLEASE NOTE, the oil pump wheel furthest to the left (closest to the radiator), has a timing mark on the flat face side of the wheel, that timing mark has to be pointing directly to the 9:o'clock position in relation to the engine. The cam wheel has an arrow on the side of one of the "spokes" ...make sure it is pointing straight up in relation to the engine...straight away from the crank shaft. Put the crank wheel on with the arrow pointing straight up to the center of the cam wheel.

My ignition lock will not turn in my 97 malibu. please help

The tension on the steering wheel lock could be restricting the ignition cylinder. The steering wheel can turn about two inches in the locked position. Try to turn the steering wheel the opposite direction about an inch and hold the wheel in that position. With the other hand turn the key.

Can not turn the key .on my 1996 toyota camry

Look for a certified diagnostic centre so your car can be properly checked. I suspect that it has a security code issue. It can only be corrected that way. Try it out and get back to me. +2348023080045

Problem # 1: My car's steeering wheel is locking up when I turn a corner. I notice it when I'm making right hand turns. However, most of the trip home is right hand turns. The car does NOT die when...

Check the steering wheel lock first of all. The fact it's only doing it on right hand turns makes me think you need to check the steering linkage. It may be hanging up on a plug wire or something, which would make the engine stumble too. It could be hanging up on the subframe too.

If the linkage is free, you will have to pull the key and tumbler and make sure it's disengaging the lock mechanism completely. Just pulling the tumbler out and turn the wheel back and forth will tell you. If the wheel is free, you found the culprit. If it still hangs up, you may need to have a mechanic change the locking mechanism.

The dying when you start it could be several things all working against you. First and foremost, do a complete tune up. That's plugs, wires, cap, rotor, oil change AND air filter. If that doesn't solve the problem, try using a higher octane gasoline and a bottle of octane boost/injector cleaner. If that doesn't work either, you may need to have a mechanic clean and calibrate your injectors.
