SOURCE: 2003 buick century won't start. Ignition

Just because the battery has enough power to operate the lights and door locks does not mean it would pass a load test. If the battery checks out OK then check the battery cables. use one side of a pair of jumper cables to bypass each cable starting with the negative cable. if the vehicle now starts, replace the cable. The positive cable is harder to check using this method. attach one end of the jumper cable to the starter terminal making sure that the end of the jumper cable is not touching the engine and then attach the other end to the positive terminal of the battery. If sparking occurs when this end is connected then the jumper cable is touching ground and must be repositioned. If the problem still exists then the most likely cause is the starter solenoid. Always wear safety glasses when working around a battery.

Sounds like it may be the spark plugs. If you have a spark maybe a fuel filter is clogged? Hope all goes well!

SOURCE: How do I remove the rear door inner panel from my

To remove the door panel, remove any screws that are in the vicinity of pull handles and door pockets. These screws will be under little trim covers that you need to prise off to get to their heads. Look for the screws around the edge of the panel and also the screw in the latch release handle recess.
The lock knob, if there is one there, will have to be screwed off and then carefully work your way around the door, freeing the panel's clips from their holes in the door frame. (Doot panels are brittle and clip break out easily).
Finally the panel will probably have to be lifted out if the window slot. (If the panel does not come off, work out what is retaining it and remove that screw or slide it off the clip that is still holding the panel. Disconnect any electrical plugs behind the panel. Under the panel you will find a plastic dust sheet that is stuck to the door frame, remove this carefully, you will have to replace it before replacing the panel.

GENERAL PROCEDURES Rear Window Motor Initialization s1r~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.
NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.

  1. Start with the ignition in the OFF position.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position. The power rear window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has entered initialized mode.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls in the upper header seal.
  1. Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the open position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls into the upper header seal. Once this operation is complete, the window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.
  1. Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions.

1991 toyota is getting hot,how can i tell if its a thermostat or clutch fan

To check the thermostat take it out and push it open. Put a piece of cotton through the opening and let it go to jam the cotton in. Hold it in a pan of water on gas range with a thermometer in the water. The thermostat should drop of the cotton when it reaches its working temperature. Check the temperature on the thermometer and see if it approximates to the temperature stamped on the thermostat. You should be able to see or hear the fan running when the engine temperature is high. With the engine cold take off the radiator filler cap. Start the engine and look inside radiator. When you rev the engine you should see movement in the water, if you dont the water pump could be faulty. Your radiator cap could be faulty and not allowing the system to pressure to rise. You probably know this but whatever you do don't take the radiator filler cap off while the engine is hot because the water will immediately boil up and spurt out all over your hand.

Car loses water from overflow cap. Replaced water pump, thermostat and overflow bottle and cap.

Stop me if this has NOTHING to do with your problem (or if it's already been solved)...I don't know a lot about cars so...My Ford Taurus kept overflowing antifreeze from the reservoir cap. Car started to over heat and kept spilling"/dumping" antifreeze every time I turned the car off. The antifreeze reservoir had been replaced less than a year prior, and water pump, radiator, etc looked at. I got a free estimate that stated my water pump was NOT the issue, but I did need a new radiator and my reservoir tank needed to be replaced (again)....$800 parts and labor.... However...I noticed the overflow holes on the tank, and also that the orange liquid (antifreeze), was also spilled around the cap lid. I also noticed the CAP on the antifreeze reservoir would loosen when tightened completely- hence, not sealing correctly. So I went to the dealer, bought a new reservoir cap for $15, replaced it, and never had an issue after! I also found out that the CAP was a DEALER PART ONLY, and when the tank itself was replaced, the CAP was the OLD one! Problem fixed! Maybe it's similar? Or something "more serious".

I can start and drive for an hour or so but in really hot weather my car will start running slow then stalls and when you go to restart it it will start then shake real bad and stall again. i have replaced...

Make sure that you don't have to much antifreeze in coolant system. A 50/50 mix is to much and doesn't keep the system from freezing or from overheating. You need something like a 30/70 mixture, then make sure that your coolant system doesn't have any air bubbles in it. You do this by starting the car with the radiator cap OFF, let it run until it reaches operating temperature. You should see a few bubbles, it might even belch up some coolant. After it has stopped making bubbles and you can see the coolant flowing in the radiator top it off with warm water. Even if you just fill a couple jugs and put them in the sun before you start. If the water is to cold it can damage your coolant system. Hope this helps let me know.

When driving my 1994 altima for a short while,it dies on me because it gets hot,I try to start it, but it will not until it cools off thats like half an hour later,then runs again.I changed the spark...

All the items that you have changed don't have much to do with over heating problems. If your car is getting hot enough that it cuts off, then you have been extremely lucky that it will start again and has not done engine damage.

Overheating is the first problem that you need to concentrate on. Check your water pump - is there any "play" in the shaft? - does it have any grinding spots in it?

Does your thermostat open when it reaches the prescribed temperature? What shape is your coolant in? Any damage to your radiator? Your radiator cap?
