Have the engine trouble codes read by a shop--that should point to the general or specific area for repair.

    Usually the connector in the car is under the dash near the steering wheel. Try any of your readers--if you get information back, go for it. The battery should be charged up.

LT1 93 has little faults to accererate hard from low rpm, like "doubts". Keeping on high rpm acceleration is ok. Only 6k miles.

Very hard to say what is wrong, do you have any kind of car history like if the waterpump was leaking or replaced? If so like my 1994 vette the pump is in the front of opti-spark 99.9 percent of the time the water will ruin the opti. I have replacement mine many times, mainly because of the waterpump. if you replace pump you Must change opti-spark, its right there in open after you take out will save you 4 hours labor time.

2003 Pontiac Vibe - 4 Cyl. 150k miles. Ignition coils keep going bad - every 4-6k miles. Coil 1 has been replaced 4 times, Coil 3 once. Coil 4 twice in the past year (20k miles). All spark plugs

Install new spark plugs, 4 new coils & replace the oxygen sensors

O2 Sensors are only good for 100,000 miles, then slow
down or quite

No idea why the coils do not last 5 or 6 years

Cylinder #1 is always at the front on a 4 cyl

Go to Rock Auto --Buy Wells Coils,NGK Double
Platinum Plugs & NTK O2 Sensor

Those parts are expensive because you have a Totota
Motor I guess

How much will it cost to replace a water pump on 1997 chrysler lhs v6.

the waterpump on this car is turned by the timing belt, when you replace the waterpump on this car the timing belt should be replaced no doubt about it, the timing belt must be replaced and also the pulleys checked and if the car have 100,000 miles or more the timing belt pulleys must be replaced. the reason for this is that if for any reason the belt jumps or breakes then engine damage will occur, the pistons will bend the valves and this is very costly, there is no extra labor to do the belt it has to be removed to do the waterpump you would just pay for the parts, for example to do a waterpump it would run about $400.00, then to do it right with a waterpump timing belt and pulleys it would run 500.00,i think its a wise thing to do.this car only uses one pulley that needs replacing so i said pulleys but rather just a pulley that runs in this belt design. good day, heres a few diagrams to help explain how it works.johnjohn2_126.gifjohnjohn2_127.gifjohnjohn2_128.gif

I have a Volvo S60 T5 2002. I have not done the maintenance after the 100,000 miles. Can you tell me which prts I need to change?

There are a few things that need to be done, first the timing belt and waterpump if this engine has one most do, so for this you would need a waterpump timing belt kit with pulleys, next is a complete tune up, spark plugs ,wire if eng uses if not then coil boots, air and fuel filters cabin filter, pcv valve, a fuel system cleaning which is done by machine at a shop called a motor vac service. then check fan belt , flush cooling system, coolant needed.and then the rest of the service is a lot of checking like brake, suspension , exhaust etc,hope this helps.

When should the timing belt be replaced on a 1.6L Ecotec engine?

Assuming that you do mean the 1.6l ecotec and not the e-techII, the inspection interval is 50,000km and the replacement interval is 100,000k. Gm has since revised this to eliminate the inspection and just replace at 100,000kms. Be advised that if you do this yourself, the replacement procedure calls to loosen the waterpump bolts to increase slack in the timing belt. which always causes a leak, you are better to replace the waterpump/gasket while you do the belt. This will cost in the area of $350 at the dealership (assuming a $100/hr door rate). You should also know that the interval on spark plugs is 40,000km as they are standard plugs, nothing fancy, and you increase your risk of shorting the coil running any longer on the plugs. ($380+). hope this helps.

Where is the plug for testing trouble codes... I just was gifted this 1990 storm. I installed a waterpump . drove for 2miles and it just cut out checked for spark at coil , nothing . I would like to check...

You can bring it to AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts or similar auto parts store and they will check the codes for free. Otherwise you'll need to bring it to a mechanic, and they're going to charge you to read the code. They will also know where the port is on your vehicle.

Unfortunately, there's no way to read the codes yourself from home unless you have specialized equipment, which will cost more to acquire than if you just brought it to a mechanic to read.

I hope this is helpful

Car had ignition coil replaced for 2nd time in a year

The crank sensor is causing the car to die. When it gets hot the resistance builds up and it will not read the crank signal. Then the car will die. When it cool the sensor will read again. You wont get spark if the crank sensor is not reading the ecm doesnt see the signal and will not allow the coil to fire.
