Thats going to be in your timing...if you blew the muffler up then the timing is way off or its time for a new timing chain and gears

Low oil pressure engine noise


the ol used has been inappropriate for the weather conditions and the engine bearings have been starved of lubricant. From your description , it appears that there is bearing failure in the engine.

I have a 95 PA, base, 3.8L. Started having problems recently with stalling and it won't start back, until minutes or hours later. It cranks, but won't turn over. I lose use of windows and seat...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. It may be the crank but not for sure. You need fuel, air, and fire to start the vehicle. With the loss of electrical components, it sounds like you have an electrical issue. If so, they can be hard to find, even with proper testing. Can you tell me in what order your problems occurred?

What would cause a new muffler system to be loud only during wet or cold weather?


do you want it to sound loud? if it's only during wet or cold weather it may be because your new muffler (if supposed to be loud) is for higher flow of gases and when the weather is cold there's more air flow to the engine. try replacing the air filter with a k&n drop in maybe you just need a little more boost. or you could replace the entire box with a cold air intake. up to you. also clean your MAF if you get the chance older cars specially imports tend to get dirty after the years

04 Chev Epica, will not start, no 4 ways no turn signals, no pwr mirrors, windows or door locks? Checked fuses, possible computer problem?


I had a similar problem recently with my Epica. During extremely cold weather I tried to use the windscreen washers which were frozen. This blew a fuse within the interior fuse box which controls the wipers, indicators etc. This also activated the flashing red security light on the display. The vehicle was still running but when I truned off the engine it refused to start again. Required to change the fuse (which from recollection is the 3rd down on the right - 10amp) before it would work again. Eventually blew again so replaced it with a 15amp fuse and been working fine ever since....
