1996 ford f150 302 engine hard to start will turn over hit will run after a few trys level out run good

low fuel pressure is most likely cause second choice would be to change the plugs and give the old chap a good tune up. then run high test gas in it. A compression test finally if it still does the same. Remember to be kind its 18th birth day is coming soon.

Removing u-joints on the front driveshaft

Get some circlip pliers (or needle nose and a screwdriver), pop out the clips, all four. Now find a socket that fits the end diameter of the u joint. Beat the chap out of it with a hammer. You will see it start to move. Do this on 2 ends next to each other til it forces into the center, pushing the opposite sides cap out of the joint. If it still won't come out, force it back the other way a little and it will slip right out.

All power comes on but car does not turn over. Battery is good. Car ran fine when parked.

This could possibly be the anti theft security called passlock turning of your starter. This is common on GM vehicles ESPECIALLY grand ams. For info, symptoms, and chap alternatives to the dealer, check out this link. Good do it yourself solutions

Turbo on my diesel do not come on line most of the time, however when it does come on i can red line thengine and everything is smooth with full power,.When turbo is not on line on i get sluggish...

I had a similar problem in my Mondeo 1.8 TD a few years ago  and this was cured by changing the engine oil and filter to the correct type.

I had used the special  Duckhams 10w-40w Turbo Diese (or was it 15w-40w?) l oil  but once I changed it to the correct Ford 5w-30w (Formula-E ) ordinary oil, the turbo worked a treat every time.( I understand now that there is an even "thinner" option that works even better so worth checking ....Something like a 1w-30w )

A strange answer I know, but true

The only reason I used the Duckhams was because the chap in Halfords said it was the best one for a Turbo Diesel

Hi we have a renault clio 2000, we need to change the rubber on the wipers can you help?

Measure the wiper blades(the rubber strip),go into any car spares shop like Halfords and buy a set of
2 wiper blabes and they are very easy to clip on, otherwise ask the chap in the shop and he will come out to your car and fix them on for you free of charge.
