Check the fuel pump if it is maintaining fuel pressure.

SOURCE: Replacement of Spark Plug leads, Distributor cap, rotor for T100

I reccommend putting WD40 or CRC on the connections to stop them corroding over time. You also want to make sure the Distributor Cap gasket seals well to keep out water. last make sure you don't get the leads mixed up, best to replace them one at a time. cheers

SOURCE: im not getting spark to my spark plugs

Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.

SOURCE: engine miss,replaced fuel

Do a compression test and make sure it is not a mechanical problem.Could be burnt valve,bad cam,or broken valve spring.If you know which cylinder is missing pull the valve cover and check the valves and see if they are all moving up and down evenly when you turn the motor over.Just disable the vehicle from starting or you can do it with it running.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My Chery tiggo 1.6tx 2010 model is jerking while I driving

It depends on how violent the jerking is? Could be as simple as a plug &/or lead breaking down or as complicated as a fuel delivery problem. Sorry not much help, but I don't have much to go on..

2005 holden rodeo RA DX 2.4L ute recent power loss when driving, over revs when changing gears would i need a new clutch installed or cable tightened?

is this a stick shifted car?
the clutch slip is easy to detect, (m/t) the rpm rises, and speed not. (ive burned up many a clutch racing, so know them, and fixed them all self)
yes, adjust the clutch free play , if cable system it gets way off
as you drive, tighter and can cause slip as free play passes ZERO.

Is it possible to fit a manual gear box to an automatic 1996 2.6 petrol holden rodeo?

You should be good as long as you replace the flywheel on the automatic engine with the one from the manual. You may also have to replace some sensors once you get it up and running because a manual will drive different that the auto and your pollution control will likely act up by turning on codes.

How many litres of fluid will fill a 1991 holden rodeo transmission?

General advice:Relative
Manual transmission back dif 1,5-2l,front (gear box)3-3,5
Automatic:Over 4l.
Yet,u need to confirm with the dipstick (the one availabile or a rigid wire used as deepstick)
U may take note of what comes out before replacing.
Some transmission need to start the engine and run the trans then ceck level again.
I know is a general advice,but u must treat the cars as a innumerous marks/models and deal fine without factory specs.If not,u need owner manual,dealers visit,shop info,etc.
Cheers let others know if u done it.
