    If it's working somewhat now, I'd first try to clean the runners realaly well, try getting all the dirt out with a solvent. If that doesn't improve your problem and you're convinced it's the motor, I'd go with just the motor since the regulator seems to be working. If it doesn't improve with just the motor you're only out $40. I'm sure after a thorough cleaning and a new motor you should have it working properly.

What transmission fluid is best in my "standard


Synthetic 80/90 hypoid works great for freezing/cold climate driving. You may notice it is harder to push the transmission into gear. some times the syncros slip more with synthetic oil slowing down the gear speed/mesh action (a slower-harder shift). If you notice this after the oil change, and do not like the synthetic, it is not that expensive to change it back. If you do a lot of driving below 30 degrees or especially below 0 degrees you may want to try synthetic hypoid. it makes driving in cold weather a breeze (no holding in the clutch for five minutes while the motor warms up).

Sunroof on Mazda tribute stuck in tilt position ..switch doesnt seem to activate at all....had a hesitation prob at end of last summer with switch...opened fine this morning..now doesnt seem to work at...


its not the motor I just had the same problem. its the switch. I cant find one to replace it but I know its the switch because I took a piece of wire and jumped across the terminals on the switch itself and the sunroof closed.

My Bmw e-36 sunroof doesnt open it makes a load clicking sound, we have changed the motor in the sunroof but still doesnt work


check for any obstructing rain/weather strips along the short sides of the sun roof that may be obstructing the glass, another test you can do is where the sunroof switch is located there is a greater piece of the headliner that you can pry off. there you will see the motor of the sunroof. Use a 7mm alan tool to manually open the sunroof so you can observe any obstructions.

How do I fix a leaking sunroof?


I beleive the issue may be more the drains from around the sunroof. The factory sunroof typically have some small drain or weep holes to allow rain water to drain away (eaier to get rid of the water then hold it back) with the sunroof fully open look for these small drain holes and try running a fine wire thru them to clear any possible existing obstruction(s) If this is not the case I'd have to guess that the weather stripping has worn and weathered and would need replacement.
I hope this mau have assisted you,
Tom

Sunroof wont close on 1990 celica gti


some cars sunroof regulators come with a couple settings in sunroof
1 the 30 degree back tilt
2 half open stop sun roof
3 full open sunroof
these are common on sunroofs

now lets look at what could be the cause
bad regulator or needed greased gears
track needs to be cleaned which can stick the wheels down
most sunroofed vehicle regulators or gear boxes you will find in the trunk way up by the wheel wells in that little compartment tight to get out
also there should be a manual crank for sunroof placed somewhere in vehicle i know for my bmw it was back in the trunk on the gear box you will have to call dealer or look in manual to find sunroof manual crank and how to close
recommend taken to the closes dealer and have them service your sunroof mechanicals and have it cleaned up
sunroofs like cars needs to be cleaned on a certain milelage interval so that it will work for a long time
