SOURCE: car won't start

Only a few basic things are necessary for the engine operation 1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)
Plus, to start the engine, the battery, the starter and the starter circuit should be OK.

If the engine won't start - there's no magic - one of these things is probably missing. Most often it's a spark- or fuel- related problem, but often it could be very simple things like dead battery.
If the car won't start, check simple things first:
Make sure you have a fuel in the tank, oil in the engine and the battery is OK, follow this link - How to check the battery
Now simply answer the questions, press "Yes" or "No" (If it's blue, follow the link).

- Do you hear the cranking sound when you're trying to start your car? (Yes No )
- When you switch the ignition ON before starting a car, does the "check engine" light come ON? (Yes No )
- When you switch the ignition ON, do you hear fuel pump buzzing sound from the gas tank area? (Yes No )
Before your engine died, did you experience any prior events such as:
- leaving the lights ON overnight (Yes No)
- driving through a deep puddle, or washing the engine compartment? (Yes No)
- trying a jump start? (Yes No)
- having only a little fuel in a tank? (Yes No)
- having had the engine repaired recently? (Yes No)
- the engine was overheated? (Yes No)
- extremely low oil pressure? (Yes No)
- unusual noises such as knocking, pinging, whistling? (Yes No)
- smoking from exhaust pipe? (Yes No)
- strong smell of a gas? (Yes No)

Now, let's try again. Turn off the radio, try to crank the engine one more time, and listen carefully. Is the cranking sounds different than it used to be? If it's different, does it looks like the engine being cranked by the starter too slowly? (Yes No)
Is the engine being cranked too fast? (Yes No)

Hope this may help;

SOURCE: SENSOR

it should not be hard to do it, specially if it is mounted on the reservor cap or on the side of master cylinder, just buy the new one and pay attetion to the clips than some times just have to be depresed by hand

SOURCE: I have bleed rear breaks.I

I'm confused, how did U bleed the rear brakes and there's no fluid to them? first of all U need to get fluid to the rear.

  1. Make sure there fluid in the brake reserve
  2. leave the cap off the reserve
  3. crack open the furthest bleeder valve till fluid come out (take it off if U have 2)
  4. if nothing still come out, then U have a clogged brake line
  5. blow back through the line from the brake side (slow till it bubbles back through the reserve
  6. then gravity bleed it, tighten up the the valve
  7. now U can bleed the brakes

You most likely knocked the electric plug loose when you changed the brakes, go back and make sure they are tight.

The ABS symbol nand 4 x 4 high symbol and advanced trac symbol keep appearing on the dash onMy 2005 Ford Explorer. It has been exteemely cold n the car goes into 4 x 4 without me putting it on


The advance track is going to shift you into whatever you need so it and when it is being used it will come on to alert you it is on. If you hit ice and slip the light will come on. The ABS will go on when it is activated as well. Again, when you are slipping and breaking, the light will come on saying it is engaging. It automatically pumps the breaks for you to shorten the stopping distance. 4 x 4 I don't think is engaged by anything other than being in 4 x 4 so I see this as your only mystery.

ABS sensor(s) could be bad or dirty/misadjusted. If the sensor stops working, it thinks the wheels are locked up and will modulate the brake pressure causing the braking distance to be scary long. Have it looked at ASAP. The sensors are at each wheel and point right at the toothed wheels on each axle. Check fluid first of course.

Abs system


it is a failed wheel bearing.the hub and bearing comes with an abs sensor and when the bearing could not be located by the sensor it will turn on the abs light and make the car skip when braking.check to see if your not missing any brake fluid and that the truck is still able to brake.if all is good then change the faulty wheel bearing.if you dont want to invest right away just disconnect the connector for the abs to the bearing.braking will feel normal and youll just have the abs light on.

ABS light won't turn off.


It could be that changing the switch told the ABS there was a fault. Try removing the fuse for the ABS and waiting 5 minutes for it to reset. ---I had a small ABS issue with my Volvo and the ABS fuse had blown. Good luck-- and if this helped can you give a rating?
