Replace the pcv valve. It will be on a vacuum hose the size of your finger. It's usually in the valve cover, just pushes in.

I have a 1994 Pontiac GrandAm w/175,000 miles. It has sat for 5 years because it was orverheating and quit running al together. where do I start if I want to get it running?


Start by removing the sparks and wire set. Mark each wire with a piece of tape as you take them off. Take a compression reading on all cylinders. They should be over 120 psi and within 20 psi of each other. Change the oil and filter, checking the oil for water and metal particles. If the gasoline has been sitting that long I would fill it with fresh fuel. Change the air filter, plugs, wires, etc. Check the cooling system for leaks, drain and refill with new antifreeze. Assemble everything and have a small amount of fuel to prime the engine if needed. Make sure the battery is fresh and fully charged. Fire her up, let it get warm while checking for leaks, smoke, overheating. Bring to a smooth idle.

2002 F150 Temp reads hot and loss of power. The truck is not running hot when temp gauge reads hot and when I shut off truck and restart the gauge goes to normal for about a mile then back to hot. It...


You could try another oil pressure sensor or test the oil pressure with a gauge at the sensor port. If you think about it, the truck goes into a failsafe mode when there is a problem. You could go into failsafe with high temperatures too. The water temp sensor could be bad but with the oil light coming on, the oil sensor should be your first choice.

You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys and it may show the problem. Sometimes it takes a better scan with dealership type diagnostics because the self-diagnostics on your truck is limited.

Failsafe mode would cause the power loss because the truck is designed to kill cylinders and to use the dead cylinders as hot exhaust pumps to cool the block.

Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?


you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

Oil in the intake manifold air hose...


This is usually an indication of "blowback" caused by worn piston rings. How many miles on the engine? There is not a cheap solution if it is blowback.

Oil pressure on a 2004 5.3 liter silverado at idle is around 20


The pressure to be most concerned with is the reading in gear at idle with engine warmed up...Low end really should not be below 20. If pressure wanders, change the sending unit and check actual pressure with a mechanical gauge if necessary. The age and quality of your oil, as well as temperature all play a part in pressure, as well as internal wear from time & miles of use. If pressure changes with rpm, that is normal. 40psi is good while driving.
need more info just ask.
