My 2002 dodge stratus ran hot lost pressure of a hose and want crank after repair


Well you need a few things for an engine to run. Spark , Fuel, and Air..to start. Assuming that the plugs are the correct ones, and all the wires are connected properly & that the distributor cap was installed properly (AND SET IN TIME correctly). I would have to lean towards maybe a warped head. But there a quite a few variables that need to be eliminated before you can really begin to start down the road with a diagnosis. Good Luck

Is it hard to change distributor on 2000 nissan pathfinder


Hi there;This is for a 2000 Nissan Truck Pathfinder 4WD 3.3L SFI 6cyl


Distributor Cap & Rotor - Removal & Installation


NOTE
The 1996-00 3.3L engines were equipped with a distributor.


Disconnect the negative battery cable.
If the distributor cap is to be replaced, mark the ignition wires for identification and remove them from the distributor cap.
Remove any components necessary to access the distributor cap.
Completely loosen the distributor cap mounting fasteners.
Carefully remove the distributor cap, taking care not to damage the cap seal or rotor, then position the cap aside.
If necessary, remove the rotor retainer.
Carefully lift the rotor off the distributor shaft.
NOTE
Inspect the distributor cap to housing seal for damage and/or cracks. Replace if cracks are detected.




To install:


Install the rotor onto the distributor shaft and tighten the rotor mounting fastener, if equipped.
Position the distributor cap seal on the distributor housing, then position the distributor cap on the housing.
Install the distributor cap by tightening the mounting fasteners in a crisscross pattern. Use care to not over-tighten the fasteners.
Reconnect the spark plug wires, making sure to install them exactly in the same position from which they were removed.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Replace cap and rotor on distributor and dry the inside of the distributor out. Then check for spark once it has dried out.

92 Landcruiser sprung huge oil leak out of a hole, apparently machined into the block between two spark plugs back behind the distributor cap. it is the dia. of a pencil. There is no obvious reason for it...


you need a new frost plug. your antifreeze wasn't strong enough. you might have cracked your block. look in your radiator to see if there is still coolant in it.

Cranks over fine but wont start in cold unless plugged in for at least 20 minutes. It used to when I first got it.


You need a very good tune up, plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor, even a new coil would be good.

not to mention gas and air filtre

gas line antifreeze in your gas tank would help a lot too.

At how many miles do I need a tune up?


It depends on the engine you have. If you do not have a 100,000 mile sparkplug then replace plugs every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Or at 2 to 3 year intervals whichever comes first.

Other maintenence requires shorter times. Oil changes and filters 3000 to 5000 miles. Air filters about 12,000 miles. If you have a distributor cap and rotor about 30,000 to 40,000 miles depending on wear.
Check antifreeze strength, change antifreeze every 3 years. Always have axles and wheel bearings checked at least every 24,000 miles. Lube door hinges annually, hood release, trunklid hinges, etc.

Rough


if it seems like it's misfiring... it seems to be the time of year you need to put a bottle or two of gas line antifreeze in our tank.
