97Honda accord idling high. Computer said bad map sensor so I replaced it and still idled high and still says map sensor bad also is locked in park.

You should clean the throttle body and Idle Air control (IAC) solenoid using spray type throttle cleaner. Here's how:

1. Remove the air snorkel which runs from the air filter box to the intake manifold.
2. Have a partner to hold the throttle to the floor (engine OFF).
3. Spray the cleaner into the throttle opening and use a cloth and/or small soft bristle brush to clean the throttle plate and the entire opening.
4. Remove the IAC solenoid (be careful not to lose the rubber O-ring which goes around it - this is a seal and the engine will run terribly without it) and clean its tip with the throttle cleaner.
5. Clean the bore that the IAC fits in to as well.
6. Have your partner to release the throttle.
7. Replace the IAC, air snorkel and any hoses or wires removed during this process.
8. Start engine
**NOTE** the engine will take longer than normal to start because of the "floor" condition caused by the throttle cleaner. Once the engine starts, rev it a few times to burn off the excess fuel/throttle cleaner.

This is due to a faulty or disconnected shift lock solenoid.
It is located behind the left side of the dash near the center console.

Got 2000 chevy s-10 2.2 electric air pump one hose goes to engine check valve the other big not sure where it goes can anyone help ?


The other hose leading up from the secondary air pump is the snorkel. Its just a vacuum line that sucks air into your exhaust system to lower emissions.

How do I change the spark plugs on my 2008 Nissan Versa?

No answer here. Looks like you have to remove the intake manifold (5- 10mm bolts in front, on the rear at the throttle body, it looks like connect from air intake snorkel, remove snorkel and take out the bolt on the other side to get to the plugs. This POS site tells you nothing useful.

I would like instructions to remove and replace the alternator in a 2004 FORD EXPLORER XLS with a 4.0L V6

Disconnect the battery

Remove the air snorkel and upper half of the air box. You may have to remove the engine cover to get at the clamp for the air snorkel at the throttle body.

You will see the serp belt tensioner on the drivers side of the engine. In the center of the pulley will be a bolt head. use the appropriate sized socket and ratchet to rotate the tensioner using the bolt head. Once the tension is off the belt it can be removed from the alternator pulley. You do not need to remove the entire belt.

Remove the three bolts holding the alternator to the bracket. A 15mm socket and possible a swivel should to the trick.

Remove the plug in connector from the alternator and remove the nut holding the battery cable to the backside of the alternator.

Make sure the new alternator is the same amperage, has the same mounting brackets and the same pulley size and the same number of groove. Essentially make sure it looks identical to the old one.

Then reinstall. It should take you about an hour tops. Good luck!
