You need to clean your Mass Airflow Sensor and your Throttle Body for starts. A bad MAF can cause a car to not start but turn over. The MAF may be getting fouled or wet by something causing a bad reading. Use CRC MAF cleaner and be careful the MAF is pricey to replace. If its never been cleaned and the Throttle body hasnt been cleaned its time. For a throttle body use CRC as well. Fords have a coating inside throttle body that can be damaged. NEVER USE CARB CLEANER. The two cans should be no more than 12 total. To get to the MAF follow the black intake hose from the air filter. Midway through you will see a plastic tubing with a plug sensor in it. This is your MAF.. Carefully remove the clamps holding the hoses to it, spray it liberally with MAF cleaner. Keep the nozzle of the spray at least 1 to 2 inches away (There are some very fine fine fine wires in tehre that you can break if touched) spray it from both sides (off the car) and let it dry thoroughly. While it dries keep following the hose to the intake manifold. YOu will see a circular orifice that has a butterfly valve (circle that twist like shutters open adn close) Place a rag under it to catch runoff and then spray it liberally. Work the body open and close with your finger.. pressing on the circle butterfly valve... spray inside in short bursts... keep spraying and it will loosen the carbon deposits. Reattach all ducts.. replace the MAF sensor.. (NOTE it should indicate fow direction but I always put a dot on it showing which side faces engine and which one faces air filter.. it cant be put in backwards or it wont work and car wont crank. ) The engine will try and start or turnover several times and should catch after a few tries. If it doesnt you need to look at fuel delivery as next possibility

It may be. Some models use cable system. Check first the hood if you have a reservoir. This could also mean that you need to replace the clutch disc.

When the engine is under load it uses more fuel then normal .First replace the fuel filter then check the fuel pressure and flow. the pressure and flow are checked with gauges. For a rough check remove the return pipe from the fuel rail, if fuel is flowing there the fuel system should be ok providing the pressure valve is not stuck open. if there is no flow there the pump may be at fault.

Hyundai 2013 I30 gearbox 'SKLITCH' between 5th and 6th gear

It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).

Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

Holden Viva- Automatic transmission troubles.

Hey mate, Had exactly the same problem. Suggest you take the car to your local auto transmission repair centre (not holden) and they can check the electrical diagnostics - if it the Transmission inhibitor Switch (as it was on mine - if so should cost you no more than 1 hour labour and about $75 - $95 for the switch.

1988 Ford F 250 5.8L EFI wont start

Since you are getting spark and fuel we know you are good there. Check the timing on the engine. Turn the engine from the front of the crankshaft with a socket and a large breaker bar until you reach top dead center of the intake stroke. Then remove the distributor cap and check to make sure the rotor is pointing to the # 1 cylinder. It almost sounds from your description of the sound the engine is making that the timing chain has jumped a few teeth on the gear. These factory gears have a nylon coating on the teeth and over time the nylon chips off the gear. When to much of this plastic gets chipped off the teeth it results in chain slack on the push side of the gear. When you shut the engine off it can jump a few teeth at the very last second before the engine stops rotating the crank and cause it to jump teeth. The engine probably has high mileage and might need the timing gears and chain replaced now. If you perform the visual check with the distributor I think you will find the chain has jumped a few teeth. If you need more help come back to this site and one of us will be glad to help. Good luck. Let me know what you discover.
