On a series 2? the drive for the oil pump is not in a place you can prime it,
I think the best option you have to prevent engine damage would be to find a place that will rent the tool to you.

1975 gmc. pulled distributor, now I cant get it back in. pulled oil pump shaft to see if it wasnt hanging up on it some how. Dist still wont go all the way in even without the oil pump shaft in it.


put the rotor on the dist and gently turn it while very slowly lowering the dist back in.
You need to make EXTRA sure you don't drop that pump shaft into the block.
I trust you have the engine cylinder #1 at TDC and are ready to slap it back together, but if you have more questions on that, let me know.

Engine oil in coolant


The 2.0 is notorious for blowing head gaskets. It could be a cracked head, but I bet it\'s the inner side of head gasket. The ongoing problem is caused by putting an aluminum head on a cast block. They just don\'t work together.

I have a 2000 Ford expedition n I dnt know what's


The loud noise could be timing chains, but only the
plastic guides are worn & maybe the tensioners hung
up, depending on how gummed up the oil is inside the
motor

If the oil wasn't changed often,then the VVT -Variable
Valve Timing Cam Actuators could also be a problem

Those two items will be a big job just to inspect

Sensors being a problem will in most cases come up as a
MIL Lamp on your dash or at least in the data on a professional
scan tool or software

Noise aside, which is a problem,you could have a clogged
gas filter & or partially blocked Exhaust Converters

I don't see any problem you have, has so far if you have a
knowledgable person just diagnose the entire vehicle & all
it's problems

Loud knocking


Sort of sounds like the timing belt broke-- if you have one

The valves may have hit the pistons & that is why it won't turn over

I don't know any of that is true & won't wish it on anyone,but
it is a place to start

How do you prime the oil pump without disassembling the engine


Every time you drain the oil, the oil system drains
to some extent

Put oil in the filter & remove the injector fuse

Crank the engine awhile, to hopefully start oil flow

I have a craftsman weedwacker, I don't know how to


Most weedwackers are 2 cycle (stroke) engines, meaning the gas and oil are mixed together before you pour it into the gas tank. If it's a 4 cycle engine it appears there is no dip stick or convenience way to check the oil, you can only replace it. Here's a youtube video that may help.

I'm having trouble with the evap system and was wanting to know where to start the car is running fine But the light is always on and I was going to check the fuel tank


You really need to study & understand EVAP Systems

You can do that by going to & using YOU TUBE VIDEO

Then you need 3 things

You should have a factory service manual for your vehicle,
to see what the system contains

That is an expensive, but in my world necessary thing to have,
The Helm.Com manuals -- not some parts store or book store generic
useless book

Then a professional scan tool or scan tool software for your laptop
& an EVAP Smoke Machine,are the other two things

You won't have any of the three,so, if you have a code & only
if you can narrow it down to a solenoid that commonly fails I
would say spend the money & take a change on gettin it right

I won't tell anyone that for another six months because codes do not
tell you what is wrong 95% of the time. Not why we get codes
Codes are to tell you a System,only a system has a malfuntion
Then the code number sort of points you in some direction
For the uneducated OBD2 folks & that includes some professional
repair shops,dealers and the like they are lost,from there,without
trouble charts,vehicle data & as I said the correct test equipment
& last the ability to know how to use it. Now that is a subject for
another day you don't even want to know about.

I have a 1966 mustang 3.3l. i just purchased a new engine & i can't get the harmonic balancer to fit right. it's scrubbing against the timing cover when its tightened down. it seems like there...


Hi,
66 L6 200. Are the timing marks easy to see? I just did this last week on our 66 block. Just bring it to TDC on #1. Remove the pulley/dampner and the timing cover bolts. Remember to remove the front oil pan bolts to the timing cover.
I use an impact wrench on the cam bolt while holding the crank bolt so I don't slip out of TDC. You'll then have to remove the oil slinger. It just slips off the keyway on the crank snout. Carefully pry the cam sprocket to start wiggling it off the cam. Both the cam and crank sprockets are "keyed".
Get the new sprockets and chain aligned with their marks. Slip the crank sprocket on first until the cam sprocket needs mounted. Just remember to hold the crank, cam sprocket, and chain as an assembly when mounting. Once you get the cam sprocket started, start threading the bolt to hold it in place. Tap light a rubber mallet to seat it further on the end of cam.
I would then remove the cam bolt and coat it lightly with thread-loc and then thread it back in. You don't want it backing out later when your driving down the road. ( don't ask how I know). Remember to put the oil slinger back on.
Your Engine has an oil slinger.

Where is the oil filter for a 2005 chevy cavalier located


ECOTec 2.4 Liter engine (and all ECOTec engine blocks in 4 cylinder sizes) have a cartridge type oil filter housing on the front of the block, driver's side of the vehicle.

The cap must be removed with a wrench, and the filter pulled out, then the new one put in. Now is usually a good time to replace the O-ring on the cap.
