SOURCE: Oldsmobile Alero EGR valve bad

yes you can do it yourself the egr valve is located on the exaust manifold closest to the fire wall unfortunately it has to be replace. it has an electronic lead to it and is vaccum operated to replace it is not a difficult task. the part can be purchased at a Napa or Oreilly's for alot less than at a dealership. just make sure your gasket surfaces are clean for replacement of new gaskets. if you have a code reader than can reset the code that is a benefit however if you do not you have to have a scan tool to reset the code. please rate the solution....thanks

SOURCE: 2000 dodge durango with 5.9L. AC compessor clutch

Yes the assembly is available but you will need a clutch pulling and a clutch installing special tools. They might be rentable, if not I dont think they cost alot.Its not a bad job.
You might want to read up on the job.Dont forget the gap spec.

SOURCE: 2004 ford f150 5.4l check

Hello, I will try to get this shadetree enough so we both can understand it. I found articles for this defect going past 2 years, so I imagine nothing new has been invented to fix it.

The Code 2104 is only showing that a secondary part was trying to adjust the idle because the primary part was not doing the job. They call it an Accelerator Paddle Positon sensor, an APP for short. I can't say if it is the same as a TPS.

The Primary part that needs fixing is the Throttle plate (body). Thats your Code 2111 and it means the throttle plates are sticking in the bore, your TAC motor is crosswired, or the Harness connector for the TAC is shorted together. The TAC is the electric valve combination built into the Intake and it looks like a miniature starter, round and elongnated. It deals with venting airflow.

The TAC, wiring harness connectors, and throttle plates are all something a shadetree can clean or inspect. Make sure the TPS you installed was properly in the slot at the Butterfly shaft. Check the small screws or rivets in each Butterfly flap as a loose Butterfly valve can jam in the bore.

Basically everything is saying the throttle is not closing to where it belongs according to the other sensors and that it is not synchronized with other moving parts. It is always open too much. I am thinking the engine is getting too much air.

Now after checking those items, if nothing is shorted,loose or binding they say you need to have the PCM tested or reprogrammed. I am thinking it might be worthwhile to buy a PCM Relay and stick it in. You can do it first or last, but as a last ditch effort to avoid a Dealer I would try it.

I would like to know what finally fixed your truck as I see some Solutions but no verifications.

I replaced starter on 1989 f150 5.0 now have no spark

Mike, Check for diagnostic codes. Check fuses/relays,wires/plugs for pinched,damage or corrosion. Could be a lot of things like distributor armature, cap, rotor, stator, ICM, coil,spark plugs,wires, make sure ground is good to distributor. Use the attached forum links,instruction, guides to help diagnose ignition spark problems, Good luck

2012 navigator engine light flashing

There's something seriously wrong with your engine control system and you need to take it to a garage where they have an OBD (on board diagnostic) scanner to read the codes...that will lead them to the actual problem. Most good garages have these, and this type of work is NOT for the 'shade tree mechanic.' That could wind up costing you a whole lot more.

When pushing down the pedal, the gears and pto is grinding more and more as time goes by. I adjusted the clutch pedal , but no help. Can this problem be fixed by a shade tree mechanic or do I need to take...

I am not a diesel mechanic, a tractor mechanic, or a shade tree mechanic. But, it sounds to me like it is time for a new clutch pack. Anyone with reasonable knowledge of simple mechanics can do this job at a much cheaper price than a professional diesel or tractor mechanic, but it can be a heavy duty job. I would weigh the differences in downtime of my equipment and the ability of my shade tree mechanic.

Truck doesn't start, knocking or rapping sound

Ok i'm a shade tree mech. so please be careful with what I'm telling you. like the what was said check battery. if ok stater will turn go to you air filter and spray w-d 40 in it I'm not a mech. so don't do this too many times. this is like pour ing gas in your carb. if it start you have a fuel prob. if it won't even turn over you have a starter prob.which taping with a hammer ( I SAID TAPPING) may loosen thing up. if stater ok still grind it may be you fly wheel has bad teeth which is a pain but can be replaced in a day if you kindof know what you doing but frist take off the inspection cover and look at the teeth which is located on eng. beside the starter. but I guess if you park it and it was ok then this is not going to be your prob. hope i helped
