SOURCE: have replaced fuel pump, relay & fuel filter.

have you checked to see if you have a bad came or lifter. that would make it backfire. if it kind of spits fuel it maybe cam. if it throws fire than it could be timing like a bad chain.

Thinking about buying a ford escape..2009....miles @ 132, this good to buy with mileage being high

Normally this amount of mileage is fine...The Escape is safe, and popular...At these miles, the motor should have been tuned up...brakes replaced recently? Also front and rear struts are usually worn out before 80,000 miles...have they been replaced? A service record on this Escape may be available? Can you talk with the previous owner?

I have a 98 vt commodore and it has no problem starting just when I turn the key I have to turn it back a little so it stops winding can anyone tell what this could be, thankyou

Your key module is bad and will need to be replaced. I wrote a previous note to my last question stating the onset of key module problems more likely due to heavy key rings. So keep your key ring simple and light.

I have a Kohler 12.5 KW marine generator on my houseboat that has a problem I was hoping you could help me with. Specs: Kohler 12.5 KW 79 CID 23HP Mfg date 9-10-96 Gen Engine Serial # 06919 L-29-R

there are some magnets behind the flywheel to cause the battery charging system to recharge the batt. sometimes they come unbonded/loose from the flywheel and cause the engine to become hard to turn. I would start there first.

1996 ford ranger has crack in radiator. starting to stall is this a coincidence

1) Replace the radiator, it won't get better and will cause BIG problems later on, the plastic and aluminum radiators are fairly cheap (check rock auto for price)
2) Replace the TFI (thick film ignition) module mounted on the side of the distributor. Very common problem with Ford ignition systems
Something in the module opens when it gets hot, then works fine when it cools off. It's like someone turns the key off while driving, no warning, sputtering etc.You will need a thin wall 5.5 mm socket to change the module. Most auto part stores have a special wrench setup just for changing the module and it only costs a couple of bucks and makes the job a breeze. make sure you put plenty of dielectric grease on the mounting side of the module for proper installation (usually included with the module)

Now my mechanic wants to know if i have another key to my car i dont can he get a key at the buick dealership a 1995 key

The Passlock family has two basic relearn procedures-a ten-minute procedure and a thirty-minute procedure-and which one you use depends on the system and what components have been replaced.

The ten-minute procedure involves trying to start the engine. If nothing happens or the engine starts and dies, the security light will be flashing. Wait ten minutes. The flashing light should go off or illuminate without flashing. When it does, turn the ignition off, wait twenty seconds, and then try to start the engine. If it starts and runs, everything is okay. If you get the same result as previously-nothing happens or the engine starts and dies with the security light flashing-wait ten more minutes.

You will now begin the thirty-minute relearn procedure, which is just the ten-minute procedure repeated three times. After turning the ignition off for the third time and waiting for twenty seconds, the engine should start and run. If it doesn't, there may still be something wrong with the system.

After the learn procedure is completed and the engine is running, the security light may stay on steady for a few minutes and then go off-this is normal. Depending on the system, replacement of key components will necessitate that a relearn procedure be completed. These include the ignition lock cylinder, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Body Control Module (BCM), or Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) ............ .Logic lock-up is an internal software issue within a control module which may be cleared by disconnecting and reconnecting the affected module (re-booting the system).

Electronic control modules can develop internal software issues which can cause erratic or no operation of the affected module. In most cases the module can be restored to proper operation by electrically disconnecting and reconnecting the affected module, just as you would reboot your home computer when it begins acting strangely.

Repeated Logic Lock-up failures of the same module would normally warrenty replacement of the affected module.
