    Thanks. This one is the kind that your just supposed to pull off and the word is just keep wiggling and it eventually comes off, but don't force it. Finally got fed up hurting fingertips and used a screwdriver for gentle persuasion. I guess "they" tell you not to that because when it shatters, you gotta find all the little pieces that fall inside the distributor!

I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get clean


The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards also...my second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.

How do I switch my broken ignition in my car to a flip switch ignition


Why don't you just buy a new ignition switch and put it back together the way it was originally designed instead of "rigging" something that will probably end up burning your car to the ground?

The entire switch, tumbler and mounting bracket assembly is available from AutoZone. 1997 Mercury Tracer Ignition Switch

Myy 99 ford expedition won't stay start, it will crank up but wont stay crank have a full tank of gas


its going to either be a fuel problem or electrical,, so check fuel first ,, get a can of carb cleaner, or quick Start,, spray some in the air intake as someone tries to start the vehicle, if it runs as long as your spraying, ( don't so this too long ) then you have a fuel issue, the easiest thing to do is change the fuel filter , try that first ,, if that doesn't fix it, your going to have to check the fuel pump,, now,, if none of that helped,, pull a plug , whatever one is easiest to remove, and put the plug wire back on ,, hold the plug with insulated pliers , ( so you don't get zapped) and ground the end of the plug against a bolt head anyplace on the motor, hold it there while s friend or someone cranks the car over, you should get a nice blue spark at the tip of the plug,, if you do ,, its again a fuel problem,, if you don't,, check the cap and rotor, any tiny crack in the cap, or build up of corroded contact tips inside the cap, will cause these problems your having, clean them off as good as you can and also clean the rotor tip, see if that helps, if it does, replace the cap as soon as you can, and also the rotor, if this doesn't help, your going to have to get the coil checked, and trace everything back to the ignition

I have a 1993 chev pick-up v6 4.3, i just installed new spark plugs,new plug wires, distributor cap and rotor button.All plug wires are back in the right position,and i used the firing order 1-6-5-4-3-2...


This diagram is for 1998-1995 Chevy 6 cylinder 4.3L engines.
Your got the firing order exactly correct, at 1-6-5-4-3-2, but here's the thing to double-check:
The distributor rotation is clockwise (note badly rendered arrow in picture).

Since you probably got everything right, then you're left with really unusual/rare causes of
failure of the ignition system:
(a) rotor button misaligned/failing to make contact?
(b) rotor button not pressed onto distributor shaft far enough therefore failing to provide correct
proximity to distributor cap contacts when coil fires
(c) coil wire or contact loose/disconnected - press coil wire firmly down into distributor cap.
(d) distributor shaft of other damage caused during installation of rotor.
(e) spark plug wires defective from factory
(f) spark plugs defective from factory
(g) battery low - may need a charge to start
(h) ICM (ignition control module) failure - hook up your HEI (high energy ignition) tester, and
watch the quality of the spark on each cylinder.
(i) fuel problem? If spark is being properly delivered, its gotta be a fuel problem...
(j) distributor cap not screwed down flush to top of distributor? maybe just on one side?

Inspect the inside of the distributor cap - if there are lots of little metal bits all over the inside
of the distributor cap, then you know you have a misalignment of some type in there, and the
rotor and cap are destroying each other. normal operation will throw a quota of spark-ed off
metal bits inside the distributor cap, but since your cap is brand new, your attempts to start
the engine should have rotated the distributor so few times, you should see no metal debris.

Inspect the distributor cap contacts to see if any spark marks are more of less in the middle
of the cap's proper "contact zone". If not, you've diagnosed an internal misalignment, which
you know how to correct.

Key broke off in ignition


use a toothpick with a tiny drop of super glue on the end - touch the glue end to the end in the ignition, and let it dry for a few - make sure the key is in the off position, and try to pull it out using the toothpick.
