Distributor vibrated loose ,lost spark ,wont start how do i fix ?The distributor just turns loosely in the engine the bolts that hold it in place vibrated loose

easy to sort out ,turn engine around so timing mark on front pulley lines up ,then take the cap off distributor and make sure the rotor arm points at no1 lead on the distributor cap ,tighten distributor ,if it doesnt start then slacken it off again and turn engine around one turn till the marks line up again and repeat the rotor at no1 lead and start engine ,then move distributor around a bit till revs increase then back it back a bit and it will be right ,if engine pinks of gives off a knocking sound on acceleration then back it off a fraction till the noise stops then it will be perfect ,or as perfect as you will get it without a timing light ,

I'm having a problem getting the alternator out of my 1995 GMC Safari. i've removed the 2 front bolts but something is hanging it up. Any Suggestions?

there are small sleeve inserts in the alternator bracket the tighten up when the bolts are tightened. you probably just need to pry on the alternator a bit to get it out. when it is out, see if you tap the sleeves back a bit with a small hammer, it will make it alot easier to install the new alternator and they will tighten up again when you tighten the bolts. use a bit of sandpaper to clean them and shorten them up a bit if you cant tap them back. good luck!

The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is loose. how do you tighten it up?

The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

My hood seems to move up and down at high speeds(50mph to 60mph). is this normal or can I tighten it up a little

You can tighten this up a bit by adjusting the plastic (or rubber) 'bumpers' directly under the hood toward the front of the vehicle. There should be two of them. To make them tighter, turn them counter-clockwise, both equally, a little at a time while checking the closed hood for tightness between turns. This should stop the constant bouncing around with the hood.

I hope this helps! :)

The following is verbatum from the mitsu engine overhaul manual... Steps 7 and 8 are a bit cryptic, but it seems like after you tighten the bolts to 20nm in the CORRECT PATTERN... you then go around tightening 1/4 turn through the pattern, then a final 1/4 turn through the pattern... do NOT tighten each bolt to 20, the 1/4 then another 1/4 before going to the next bolt, the idea is to get EVEN tightening across the head, so tighten her three times around the pattern! Now for the verbiage from Mitsu's overhaul manual...

(1) When installing the cylinder head bolts, check that the
shank length of each bolt meets the limit. If the limit is
exceeded, replace the bolt. - Limit: Max. 96.4 mm (3.79 in.)
(2) Install the washers.
(3) Apply engine oil to the bolt threads and washers.
(4) According to the tightening sequence, tighten the bolts to
75 Nm (54 ft.lbs.).
(5) Loosen the bolts completely.
(6) Torque the bolts to 20 Nm (14.5 -ft.lbs.)
(7) Tighten the bolts l/4 turns (90”) more.
(8) Tighten the bolts l/4 turns (90”) additionally.

How do I adjust headlights on a Chrysler town and country 1996

Look around the edge of the headlight. You may have to pull a cover off from around the headlight if you cannot see them. Normally there are 2 screws that can be adjusted with a cross tip screwdriver. One screw on top of the light, and on on the side. Loosen the top screw to adjust down, tighten the screw to adjust up. If the side screw on the light is towards the inside, then loosen the screw to adjust towards the outside of the road and tighten it to adjust the light towards the inside of the road. If the screw is towards the outside of the light, then it is reversed. tighten to bring the light towards the edge of the road and loosen to bring the light towards the inside of the road. Hope this helps!
