SOURCE: OBD 2 code showing 300 & 301 cylinder misfire

there are alot of components that can throw those codes.... as a test pull one wire from the coil pack and note if the engine idle changes... replace it and move to the next one... repeat that for all cyclinders.... if you pull one and there are no changes you have likely located the cause.

Did your mechanic use a DRB III or equivalent scanner before performing the bleeding procedure after installing the master cylinder? This is a requirement by the manufacturer (Chrysler) when bleeding the brake system.

SOURCE: alternator belt keeps breaking

Either you have a pully that has a bad bearing, or the belt tension is going bad. One of the two will cause this.

They normally last long, they need to check that the rotor cup that the speed sender gets its signal from is not damaged and has the correct spacing. Also check for oil contamination from leaking cam seals.

Will a 1993 alternator match a 1996 suburua impreza

providing the mounts are the same then the only difference would be the capacity of the alternator or the belt drive ( for example early unit 65 amp against the later model 90 amps) the amperage of each will be stamped into the alternator body . The lower amperage unit may have trouble keeping the battery charged

What would cause my 91 s10 to flood out?

It could be the throttle body itself that is worn out. There is something called the throttle positioning sensor that regulates how much gas is dumped into the motor for six cylinders to run on either at idle or going down the road. I had the same issue with my 90 blazer that died on me on the road and would not start because it was flooded.

My truck keeps ideling at the light the it will cut off it shakes a little then cut off i checked the battery and alternator and starter its all ok what could be wrong

This sounds more like it may be misfiring, when you get a misfire the engines idle is lower than normal and also the engine will shake as all cylinders are not firing and inturn cause the engine to stall out, the check engine should be on if its being doing this for a while (few days ).have the computer scaned and see if the computer has picked up a misfire, the code will tell you which cylinder or cylinders are mis firing, from there you can check the sparkplugs and also the coils. there are many auto part stores that will scan the computer for the codes at no charge and give you a readout. good day

1997 pontiac grand prix- car wouldn't start so we changed the alternator and charged the battery. it still wont start and now the key wont come out of the ignition.

Hello! The problem is the ignition lock cylinder itself...I would suggest changing the cylinder and the ignition switch...Purchase and change the Lock Cylinder first...If that solves the problem, stop there (The switch is costly...It may not be needed)...See photos below...Guru....Saailer

How do I remove the alternator from a 93 ford bronco?


There are 4 different types of alternators found on the years and model ranges covered in this information:

  1. Rear Terminal, External Regulator, External Fan Alternator
  2. Side Terminal, Internal Regulator, External Fan Alternator
  3. Leece-Neville 165 Ampere Alternator
  4. Integral Rear Mount Regulator, Internal Fan Alternator

Rear Terminal, External Regulator, External Fan Alternator
This unit utilizes a separate, external electronic regulator. The regulator is non-adjustable. The rear terminal alternator was standard equipment on 1987 trucks, and can be found on some 1992 motor home chassis models equipped with the 7.3L diesel or 7.5L gasoline engine.
Side Terminal, Internal Regulator, External Fan Alternator
This unit was optional on 1987, standard on all 1988-92 models and standard on 1993-96 models equipped with the 4.9L and 7.5L engines. The regulator in integrated within the alternator body and is not adjustable.
Integral Rear Mount Regulator, Internal Fan Alternator
This alternator is standard equipment on all 1993-96 models equipped with 5.0L, 5.8L gasoline engines and 7.3L diesel engines (except the 1996 F-Super Duty models).
Leece-Neville 165 Ampere Alternator
This unit is optional equipment on some 1989-94 trucks and ambulance packages. A separate, electronic, fully adjustable regulator is employed in this system.
Mitsubishi 215 Ampere Alternator
This unit is found on 1996 F-Super Duty models equipped with the 7.3L diesel engine. The regulator is integral and the fan is external.

Fig. Fig. 4: Rear terminal alternator

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove the adjusting arm bolt.
  3. Remove the alternator through-bolt. Remove the drive belt from the alternator pulley and lower the alternator.

Some engines are equipped with a ribbed, K-section belt and automatic tensioner. A suitable tool must be made to remove the tension from the tensioner arm. Loosen the idler pulley pivot and adjuster bolts before using the tool..
  1. Label all of the leads to the alternator so that you can install them correctly and disconnect the leads from the alternator.
  2. Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
  3. To install, reverse the above procedure. Observe the following torques:

    Pivot bolt: 58 ft. lbs. (78 Nm) Adjusting bolt: 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm) Wire terminal nuts: 60-90 inch lbs. (6.8-10.1 Nm)

Audi 90 1988 timing problems

there wil be a mark on your camshaft, alternator, igniton coil and driveshaft and on the motor block for each one of them, set them over there and then put the timing belt on, still i would take it to a mechanic for this, because if you do this wrong you might break off a valve inside one or more of the cylinders and that would be more expensive then to have it done right the first time.
