I got a 1999 chevrolet tahoe. when i put the key in the ignition the head lights,and the dash light comes on but it won't even turn. i change the starter and got a new battery and it still won'


well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

Error Code P0302 1996 Volvo 850 GLT


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0302 has a generic description of "Cylinder Misfire - Cylinder Number 2".

A misfire simply means that when it came time for that cylinder to fire, it missed its chance.
There are many things that can cause a misfire. Some of the things are listed below. Diagnostics should be performed to eliminate the possible causes so you don't spend a lot of money replacing parts trying to "guess" what is causing it.

These are just SOME of the possible causes:

> Spark plugs
> Ignition cables
> Ignition coil
> Distributor cap (if equipped)
> Fuel injector
> Fuel injector circuits
> Burned engine valves
> Blown head gasket
> Cracked cylinder head
> Piston damage
> Cylinder block damage
> Broken valve springs
> Damaged camshaft
> Vacuum leaks

I need to know the torques specs for the head bolts on a 1991 vw passat, can you help


I,m assuming that you have the head off for some reason. So before you put it back together you need to know a couple things. Make sure your crank is lined up with your timing mark for TDC BEFORE you put the head on the engine. Also the timing marks on the head have to be lined up BEFORE you put the head on. If they don't do this properly you will bend valves when you try to get it lined up.
The head bolts must be tightened in a specific order or the head will crack.They must also be removed in the reverse order. The five bolts on the exhaust side of the engine are numbered from the timing belt in this order: 10-4-2-6-8. The five bolts on the intake side are numbered from the timing belt in this order: 7-5-1-3-9. Sorry I can't send pics so maybe draw this out before you start, basically it a set of X's.
timing 10 4 2 6 8 distributor
belt 7 5 1 3 9


The torque is done in 3 stages. The first torque is 30 ft-lbs (40Nm). The second torque is 43 ft-lbs (60Nm). The third torque is 1/2 turn or 180 degrees. This final torque can be done as 2 1/4 turns or 90 degrees if you wish. Hope this helps.

My 97 lexus es 300 alarm went off. I immediatly put the key in the ignishon. Soon as I tried to start my car the theft system would not let me turn it on although the radio head lights and other things...


Some vehicles will allow you to start and drive (temporarily) by switching the ignition key between 'Off' and 'Run' or 'On' several times (common is three) in quick succession. You would however, at least have to repeat it every time you wished to start the car. Disabling the security system could be quite difficult since they really are intended to make a vehicle unusable.

Cams not in sink with crankshaft marks do not line up motor turns over too many times for start up


if your going to keep the car,search online for a download (free). if not go to local auto parts and buy a repair manual as this will not be the only time it will come in use. some motors the cams dont align with crankshaft marks. some cams have alignment hole in the head that you put bolts in,some cams have slots that need a flat bar to align with the head surface,. does this car start or run? did belt tension allow belt to slip,does car misfire? get the $ 25 manual and check your concerns, if the cams are not properly timed then something caused this, tensioner,bad belt,bad idler pulleys,bad cam gear,possible bad key way on cam gear.do your checks and homework, try not to turn motor over untill you diagnose problem to ensure you do not cause any internal damage to the valves or cylinder heads, pistons.

Opel corsa 1.4i car cuts off when idling what is problem


My Opel corsa Lite 1.4i, 2005 model cuts off when idling or stopping. I've replace the ignition coil as it was suggested but the next day the problem continued. I've replace plugs, filters, ect. When I'm approaching a place where i have to stop i see lights on dashboard coming out and the engine goes off if i stop or if i put the second gear it kicks again. Please assist as none of mechanics in my area know where to fix now.

PLEASE HELP!! NOTHING works at all, but the head lights!!!


You have lost your main breaker--there is a fuse bank beside the battery and the main(black one) is held in place with 10mm bolts--pull back the cover and all will be evident. This fuse is the first thing to go when you reverse polarity--headlights are straight thru battery and will be all that's powered. Replace the main breaker!

2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Steering Wheel column locked...key goes in but does not start the car....can't move wheel... Wheel is not straight....will not move even if jimmed..car totally locked....up..


All you need is two inexpensive things to fix this. 1. Hammer and 2. WD-40. First, put the key in the ignition and tap it with the hammer. (this should unlock the steering wheel and the iginition) Second, spray some WD-40 in the key opening on the ignition, then put the key in again and proceed to tap it some more with the hammer. (WHEN I SAY TAP THE HAMMER I DO NOT MEAN HIT IT WITH FULL FORCE)... Any who keep put WD-40 and tapping it until you can turn the key without the help of the hammer... (should be at least 4 times) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH TIME DEBRI BUILDS UP IN THE IGNITION, AND THIS CAUSES THE STEERING TO LOCK UP WHEN YOU PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. THE HAMMER UNLOCKS THE SPRINGS IN THE IGNITION AND THE WD-40 CONVERTS THE DEBRI TO LIQUID SO IT CAN CLEAN THE IGNITION...
