SOURCE: noise under right front of hood

This is pretty hard to diagnose without being there. I would suggest that you take a hose with ends cut off and listen through it, since you are mechanically inclined. I would also check things that may be rattling against the firewall, the exhaust system for rattles as they tend to do so when bushings are worn out, and recheck the things you have if you haven't done so with hose or stethescope. I had a similar problem that was a loose exhaust bushing... Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: How do you open the hood when the release cable

You are asking for advice on how to pick a lock when all you have on you is a sausage!!! This in not going to be easy! The cable pulls on a lever which can usually be seen through the radiator grille. The problem here is just about every manufactrer has a different idea where to put the lever, but it is USUALLY in the middle of the hood. If you are very lucky, you will be able to see the end of the lever through the grill and probably see where the cable attaches. Now get out your slotted screwdriver and TRY to move the lever to open the hood. This is not easy. On some vehicles, you can crawl underneath the front on your back and look up to see this mechanism. More and more vehicles have this area closed off by a plastic cover which has to be removed first.... If you have such a cover, hope it is held inplace with slotted screws!

SOURCE: ok, mom said the car

The engine is an interference engine. If it is worth fixing, that would have to depend on the damage done. You will just need to have the top part opened up. It is most likely that you get a pair or more valves hit the piston.

For the TDC, make sure you get the timing marks taken down. If the pulley moves, you should know the position. A simple way to take note of the TDC is by putting a long screwdriver in the hole for the spark plug. The highest point where the screwdriver stops before going down as you move the crankshaft is the TDC.

Sounds like your alternator. Even tho it's new, that could still be your problem. Check your battery cables and terminals to see if they are tight. And no corrosion is on either one of them as this could be your problem. If this does not help, then check your belt to make sure its nice looking, AND tight. Also, check ALL of your fuses AND relays. Hope this helps, James Booth. Please rate this. :))

    Gas is leaking from my fuel rail (phlegm) on my number 5 fuel injector on my 1994 camaro

  • Park the Camaro on a flat, level surface and set the parking brake. Open the hood and secure it in place with the hood prop. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Open the gas tank to relieve pressure on the fuel lines.
  • Remove the sight shield from the fuel injector with a socket wrench. Loosen the screws on the hose clamps and disconnect the fuel lines connected to the injectors. Keep a rag handy to catch any fuel that leaks.
  • Disconnect the vacuum hose and ignition coil wire, then unplug the electrical connectors. Remove the fuel injector mounting bolts, undo the retaining clips and remove the fuel injectors.
  • Put a thin coat of engine oil on the new fuel injector's O-ring. Place the O-ring in position, install the new fuel injectors and secure the retaining clips. Install the mounting bolts with a torque wrench set at seven pounds.
  • Plug the electrical connectors back into the fuel injectors. Reconnect the vacuum hose and ignition coil wire. Connect the fuel lines and tighten the hose clamps with a screwdriver to secure them in place. Bolt the sight shield in place with a socket wrench.

    Pully on steering pump has come loose an misalighned the belt an chewed it up, the manual says something about removeing the pully during replacement. are the puulys able to be pressed back on?

    Yes - the pulleys can be repressed but require a special puller / installer set to do so. Typically these pulleys have such great compression securing them they cannot come loose - it is possible the front bearing on your pump went bad, throwing the alignment off. Autozone rents out a puller / installer set so you don't have to buy one, and your local parts store may also have one available to rent.
    When you re - install the pulley, make sure you press the pulley on FULLY to prevent alignment issues.

    How many labor hours will it take to install a new alternator in my jeep grand cherokee?

    How to Replace an Alternator (DIY Time: 2.5 hours)
    Complexity: Moderate

    1. Alternator - $151.95

    1. Combination Wrench Set
    2. Screwdriver
    3. Multimeter
    4. Serpentine Belt Tool
    5. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
    6. Socket Set

    Step 1 Open the hood and locate your vehicle’s alternator.
    o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
    o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.

    Step 2 Using your digital multi-meter, check the battery voltage. A dead battery will usually have less than 9 volts. This would not be enough power to start most vehicles.

    Step 3 To verify that your alternator is bad, make sure your battery is fully charged and can pass a load test.

    Step 4 With the good battery installed, connect your digital multi-meter across the battery terminals with the engine turned off. A good battery should read between 12-13 volts.

    Step 5 Start your engine and read the digital multi-meter’s output. The voltage should rise near 13.5-14.5 volts.

    Step 6 Using an open end wrench, disconnect the battery’s negative cable.
    o Tip: When disconnecting battery cables, be sure to always disconnect the negative cable first and do not allow it to come in contact with the negative terminal post while working on the vehicle.
    o Tip: Wrap the battery cable with a shop towel and pull it away from the battery terminal.

    Step 7 Disconnect the power and ground wires on the back of the alternator paying close attention to where each wire connects. Disconnect the wiring harness connector.
    o Tip: Check for a loose wiring harness connector, cracked wire insulation, and corroded terminals. Replacing the wiring harness may be necessary.

    Step 8 Loosen the alternator bracket bolts, and alternator adjusting bolts or alternator belt tensioner so that you can remove the alternator drive belt.

    Step 9 Using the proper size socket and ratchet, remove the alternator mounting bolts, spacer (if equipped), adjusting bolt, lower pivot bolt (if equipped), and the alternator.

    Step 10 Install new alternator.

    Step 11 Using the proper size socket and ratchet, loosely install the alternator mounting bolts, spacer (if equipped), adjusting bolt and lower pivot bolt (if equipped).

    Step 12 Install the alternator belt.
    o Tip: When installing the alternator belt, make sure the alternator belt is fully seated in the groove of the pulleys.

    Step 13 Pull the alternator until the alternator belt is tight.

    Step 14 Tighten the alternator mounting bolts while gently moving the alternator unit to achieve proper alternator belt tension.

    Step 15 Reinstall the power and ground wires to alternator. Install the wiring harness connector.

    Step 16 Push down in the middle of the alternator belt to check belt tension. If the alternator belt moves more than a half an inch, it is too loose, adjust the alternator belt to proper tension before proceeding to next step.

    Step 17 Now that the alternator belt has been installed and adjusted, reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check the battery voltage to verify proper alternator charging.

    Step 18 Turn off the engine and recheck the alternator belt tension. Readjust the alternator belt tension if needed.

    Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

    Replace power steering pump

    NOTE: The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J–29785–A (1985–92), Puller J–25034–B (1993–96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J–25033–B or equivalent.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.
    2. For 1996 vehicles, remove the air cleaner assembly for access.
    3. For 1993–96 vehicles, remove the hood latch and the upper fan shroud.
    4. Release tension and remove the drive belt. For details, please refer to Section 1 of this manual.
    5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
    6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
    7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
    8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
    9. WARNING
      Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
    10. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle. To install:
    11. Position the pump to the vehicle, then uncap and connect the pump hoses.
    12. Install the steering pump to the retaining bracket, then secure using the retaining bolts. Tighten the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). For 1996 vehicles, tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm). NOTE: On early-model vehicles where the drive belt is tensioned by pivoting the power steering pump assembly, do NOT fully tighten the mounting bolts at this time, since you will just have to loosen them again for belt installation and adjustment.
    13. Install the pump pulley using the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J–25033–B or equivalent. Press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump.
    14. Hand-tighten the pivot bolt, the adjusting bolt and the washer.
    15. Install the drive belt. On early-model vehicles so equipped, properly adjust the belt tension. For details on belt installation and tension adjustment, please refer to Section 1 of this manual.
    16. For 1993–96 vehicles install the upper fan shroud and the hood latch assembly.
    17. For 1996 vehicles, install the air cleaner assembly.
    18. Connect the negative battery cable.
    19. Refill the power steering reservoir and bleed the power steering system.
    20. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
    21. Road test the vehicle, then check and top-off the power steering fluid.
