    You need to replace the distributer itself.

    When you do don't go to Autozone go somewhere else and get a good one.

hi Russ, it sounds like the temperature switch is bad. It is located under the hood, front engine area, driver side, end of intake manifold, mounted in the block. U should be able to test it w/ an ohmeter as follows: disconnect wiring (check for loose, corroded, etc as that could be the problem) remove temp. switch, place in an old pot w/ water on stove, w/ temp below 99 degrees, connect ohmeter to terminals, reading should be zero. Heat water to above 99 degrees, check , should read infinity. If it fails this test, it's time to replace it. Good luck, let me know how u make out Curt from Connecticut.

SOURCE: 1995 toyota camry-stalling out when driving

You do not have to replace the fuel pump at a specific mileage.
I hate to speculate without physically inspecting the vehicle, but, my best solution here & now may be the fuel pump. Now, I would not go out & buy one before you had proper diagnosis. Here is one test, but you will need to have to experience the stall again, and then test to see if you have fuel pressure at the injectors. If you have no fuel pressure, replace the pump. Fuel filter issues do not "come & go", they stay, and your car would not run properly. Also, a fuel pump failure will not set a computer code on this particular model vehicle. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: steering wheel vibrates when i apply brakes.

yes i have heard of this.check your tierod ends just to make sure they are good.But im sure its just those rotors warping.The next time u need brakes buy slotted and drilled rotors.they are pretty cheap on e bay.that allways fixs the problem you are having.The only other thing you can do if you dont want to upgrade rotors is. to keep the rear drum brakes adjusted.If you even have them.Come to think of it if you are having this problem with 4 wheel disk.then you might be having a problem with the combination valve. or the proportioning valve.But i think its just the rotors.

SOURCE: Problem with break caliber and pedal and rotor 99 corolla

you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master cylinder....in other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help

My 1996 Buick roadmaster electronic trunk won't lock


Check the operation of the latch while it's open. Maybe the latch accidentally got pushed into the locked position so it won't lock around the pin. Unlock the latch, then manually pull back the tabs.

How to replace a starter on a 1993 buick roadmaster


there is little space to unbolt the starter and then wiggle it around to drop it. Unbolting the crossmembers is a real pain, so don't consider unless you can get to the back side of each bolt. So. Get some nut/bolt remover and spray on the bolts and nuts that attach the exhaust pipe to the two header exhaust pipes. Be patient during this and hopefully you won't break a bolt while removing the nuts. Try to tap lightly on the nuts to loosen some. Have a socket wrench with an extension to reach . Or, better yet, have an impact wrench to use. The impact action of the wrench helps to loosen the nuts. Do this removal of both exhaust pipes from the headers. Remove the bolts that hold the starter in place, slide forward a little and drop. But, be sure to note how wires are attached and be sure to remove the positive battery cable from battery before starting. You have to do this from underneath, so support it safely. Can't say I would want to buy a rebuilt starter and have to do it all again. It would be nice to have some extra nuts and bolts on hand, but I don't know the sizes. If you break one. Take it to the parts store. Call the parts store and make sure they have the starter on hand before you start, unless time really doesn't matter on how long it takes to do this job. Take your starter with you to compare and to get a "core charge" counted toward the purchase. 93 roadmaster 5.7L

Starter install 1992 buick roadmaster how to remove


Do you mean the starter-motor removal?
Disconnect the battery. Disconnect the red/positive battery cable from the starter. Trace the red/positive cable to where it ends (that's the starter), disconnect it from the solenoid. Use applicable socket wrench/flat-wrench to unbolt/remove the starter-motor. Installation is reverse of removal.

From under the car, it's located on the passenger side of the motor.
