Question about 1995 Chevrolet Beretta

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 96 Chevy Beretta that was running fine until I decided to do a tune up.All I did was replace the sparkplugs one by one,I changed the oil and oil filter and added radiator stop leak sealer along with a container of antifreeze and now the car won't crank or turn over.I even replaced the starter and battery and still get the same results.Can it be the alternator or something of that sort.I hear a rattling sound when the car was running that sounded like it was coming from the pulleys but not sure.Can you please help me ? thank you !!

Can a faulty speed sensor in a 96 dodge ram automatic make it only read 1st and 2rd gear

not likely, the speed sensor sends the info to the pcm and will affect gear change, though its highly unlikely that the speed sensor can make the pcm "read" first or second gear, speed sensor sends info to the pcm to help it decide when to shift gears/apply abs/ etc

'79 Chevy van has been in storage for five years. How do I get it running again?

Start by cleaning the fuel tank (water from condensation accumulates in it), clean the fuel lines, clean and adjust the carburettor, drain the old oil, remove the sparkplugs,put some fine oil in the cylinders and crank the engine manually, put new oil,oil filter,sparkplugs,distributor cap and air filter, replace the water and start the engine. Check for leaks, run the engine for an hour followed by an oil engine cleaner.

You should run the engine and watch it to see if you can see where the leak is coming from, it is most likely coming from a hose or the water pump.

Coolant leak on my chevy beretta from the ac unit

I would say that your heater core or one of the heater core hoses has started to leak. Check the hose clamps to make sure that they are tight. Fill the coolant system and run the car. Check to see where the leak is, you may need to put the car on ramps so that you can see the leak better.

1996 Beretta

There are multiple items that could cause this. First off Chevy came out with ECO cool orange coolant on their cars with out first finding out that it was corrosive to certain plastics and rubber. So if you have this coolant in the 96 beretta it could have ate through one of your hoses.

Also by now your car is over ten years old and depending on the environment in which you drive the car could have created a crack in your radiator. The previous 96 beretta that I owned cracked all down one side. There is never a good fix for this except for replacing the radiator.

These cost about 100 at your local parts store and take the weekend to replace. If you still have the ecocool coolant though I would suggest that when you replace your radiator that you also switch to the standard green coolant. This will not harm your car and you will have less of a chance for your coolant to corrode something.

My 1989 chevy beretta will not go in gears i have fluid it was going in drive but now it locked in a gear and would not go.

I actually have the same issue with my '90 Beretta. I have not yet had the time to look at it but I could suggest that either your master or slave clutch cylinder is shot or your clutch linkage needs to be tuned/replaced. A Master clutch will run about $50.00 at your Autozone or Advanced Auto, and the slave is about $40.00. I'm not sure wht the linkage will run you, nor do I know the cost of repair if you decide to have a mechanic fix it for you.
