I have a 2004 Nissan Xtrail. I have been losing coolant, even though there are no apparent leaks. Now I am experiencing loss of power intermittently, especially uphill, even to te point pf crawling.. ...


Generally speaking, if you are loosing coolant and there are no external leaks, its usually being burned in the cylinders and going out the exhaust.
You can burn a gallon a week and not see any smoke.
You may want to pull the spark plugs and look for signs of a head gasket or intake gasket leak.
Coolant can also weaken the spark plugs and affect the performance of the engine.

2007 chevy equinox has problems with stabilock and traction control lights coming on after I had the spark plugs changed


Changing the sparkplugs has nothing to do with these lights, the trac control and stabilock would not be affected with just replacing sparkplugs, i assume the check engine light is not on since theres no mention of it , if the engine light were to be on then there may be a connection, the computer will turn off these systems if it turns on the check engine light for any reason, when the engine is not running as its suppose to the computer shuts down these systems because they can not operate correctly with a engine light on.

Is it possible to upset the timing by changing plugs and wires?


The timing in itself can't be affected by different leads and sparkplugs. The actual spark delivered in the cylinder differs when using other leads and sparkplugs than recommended by the Hyundai. This can go either way - better spark (high performance plugs) or less spark (lower quality materials).

Next to this leads can have leaks due to manufacturing faults. Simple way to test this is to open the hood when it's dark with running engine. Blue sparks are signs of leaks in the cables / caps.

1987 Buick Grand National losing power, changed


Symptoms Like this usually point to the Fuel pump.

Also these cars suffer from inferior wiring to the fuel pumps and a substantial Voltage drop is noted between the Fuel pump relay and the Pump harness.

The fix for this is a "Hotwire" Kit

Fuel pump kits with a Hotwire kit are available at numerous Buick performance Vendors but the best stuff in my opinion come from Racetronix,com

You should also change the Prom Chip in the ECM to a modern
Chip from Turbotweak.
This will improve driveability greatly.
