If you have replaced the distributer then the timing could be off. Did you set the distributer rotor in the same position when you took it out? If not then you will have to readjust it. But first try to loosen the hold down clamp and turn it very lightly at a time and try to crank. If it gets worse then go the other way very little at a time, and try. Be sure to tighten the clamp before each try.

What parts do I change to tune up my 2008 dodge caliber


For a standard tune-up, the parts needed include an air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. You should also have oil, transmission fluid, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and brake fluid available. A tune-up consists of topping off or replacing fluids, changing spark plugs and spark plug wires, changing the fuel, oil, and air filters, and checking the pressures of the tires. More detailed tune-ups run a diagnostic test on the vehicle to check for any codes that indicate additional issues.

Same cylinder all the time? What brand of spark plug did you put in? Have you cleaned injector connection? If spark plug and wires are known good, injector and connection would be next. Did you erase code after other work done?

My 99 buick regal cranks over and starts but has trouble running. If you give it gas to help it through the start up it levels out and runs fine. Fuel pump is good, I've changed spark plugs and wires,


sounds like a stuck open EGR valve to me , take it off of a cool engine and spray some carb cleaner around the seat see if any leaks through to the other side. If it does The valve is bad. Also check out your throttle body for carbon and gumming. W/ engine off spray an appropriate carburator
cleaner into the opening and clean throttle plate and bore with a rag until shiney. put all the air cleaner hoses back together and hold throttle to floor momentarily until engine starts, then rev up half way and release throttle twice quickly, now allow engine to idle idle should be stable and smooth. If not then check for other sources of vaccume leaks.

What is the difference of a " Tune up" and


A basic tune up on your vehicle is a spark plug change, fuel filter and air filter change. And depending on the miles, timing check,spark plug wires, distributor rotor. Maintenance schedules are listed with your owners manual and other material when the vehicle is sold new, usually maintenance consists of oil and filter change, tire rotation, checking belts and hoses, and many other items for wear and tear, like brake checks, timing belt, these items are checked at specific intervals based on mileage or months. take care and thank you for the question.

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?


New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

No problems really,stalls once in a while. Just curious what consists of a tune-up on my engine. what I should replace and so on.


This would include your spark plugs or coils, the wires, a new distributor cap, an oil change, air filter, fuel filter, and a coolant flush. A tune up can make a car run like new again. Some don't change the fuel filter on a tune up but I have always said it is best too. They can get clogged up over time.

My 1992 saturn keeps failing the emissions test due to high HC GPM readings. The PCM indicates no problems. I was told that alot of saturns have this problem. I"ve done everything when it comes to a tune...


it is probably bunring oil which is causing this,,,if it is burning oil you can try this to help it,sometimes it works and other times it doesnt,,,,,get the car good and hot,remove the spark plugs and get top engine cleaner and dump it into the plug hole,let it sit overnight if you can,,,,disconnect the ignition module and put rags over the plug hole and crank the engine a few minutes with breaks inbetween to get all the left over cleaner out the engine,,,,then plug the ignition module in and put the plugs in,it may smoke really really bad,,,just keep running it,,you may have to put foot on gas to start it,,,,,let it burn all the **** out the cylinders and then change the oil and get new plugs and that should help the oil burning if it is a oil burner and hopefully help the emission readings,,
