No Moovrment vertical or lateral allow. Just roration in bearings.. If you have lateral movement , you have a problem. Common or not, it is a big problem. Chances are greater that the sebsor is too long/wrong

It seems to me that if the belt breaks , even on an interference engine: the valves will slam shut . Maybe it 50/50 chance either way.


belt has to be replaced any way
compression test on the cylinders.. tells you straight away
zero or low compression numbers ..valves bent

in an interference engine OHC or DOHC belt breaks
the cams stop dead and pistons continue to move up and down

non interference there is a gap between pistons and valves

2004 chevy 2500 hd deisel, wont start, canged fuel filter about 3 months ago, started today and ran for about 10 seconds then shut off. Haven t been able to start it since??


2 items that will put you back on the road. The glow plug controller When you turn the key on do you hear it. Its on the left rear of the engine above the rocker cover to the left of the turbo charger the glow plus is a assistant to aid in starting, There are two type of controller its either a rely or a solid state, Cycle the key it should come on for 2 seconds. cycle the key again. then start it,if it start get a glow plug control.now if it doesnt start are you willing to use either(its called instant start) use the one for diesel. did it start and stay running. if it stays running glow plug control is needed. Now if it didnt stay running and shuts right of youll need to replace the cam sensor, the cam sensor is located in the right side of timing cover behind the water pump pulley. They are plaque with damage. inspect the cam sensor and the connector for damages, If the camsensor rattles its defective. This cam sensor are failing left and right oh by the way carry an extra one the are common failures

Hello, I just bought a 1994 Jeep YJ (Sahara). The doors do not fit right. Is this a common problem? How do i fix? the pins seem to be straight, and the hinges have not moved (no sign of damage or...


Hello, if the doors aren't closing right you can loosen the bolt that the doors latch onto, it is a torx, then move it up or down so that it closes well. Otherwise you can bend the door pins slightly. What can happen is that the body shifts with the removal of the hard top or if someone unbolted the roll cage to put down the front wind screen. Get the doors going good by adjusting the bolt that the door jam latches onto to keep the door closed. Then tighten everything good. It is common that they don't close right. Also, while you're at it, pull up the carpet where the seatbelts are in front and look for rust on the floor. YJ's are know for the seat belt ripping out of a rusted floor and the passengers going through the windshield. But I still love jeeps. Cheers bro.

1993 grand am no spark


You said you changed the ecm module, is that the ecm or the ignition module. Do you have access to a scanner to check cranking rpm? That way you can test the new crank sensor and the wiring and the ignition module.
