SOURCE: lifter pecking

as old as the car is...I'm not surprised.   You have a sticking or worn hydraulic lifter.  You my try an engine flush followed by a oil change. Or totally ignore it.  Is your oil pressure good?

SOURCE: idle runs too high when I come to a stop, for about 5 seconds.

The throttle body may need to be cleaned. Take off the induction hose to the throttle and open the plate. Make sure the vehicle is not running. With the throttle plate wide open, soak a cloth rag with carb and choke cleaner and work the rag around the inside of the body especially where the plate's closed position is. remove the rag and spray a small amount of carb cleaner down the throat of the throttle body. replace hose and run vehicle at 1500 rpm's for a few seconds. This should fix the idle. It should be idling at about 800 rpms.

SOURCE: 1997 Buick Regal GS Auto starts but won't stay

you have to monitor the fuel pressure, if you find that the pressure drops off as soon as the engine has started you should check the fuel pump resistor located on the frame next to the windshield washer tank. If the resistor is ok see if you can keep the engine running with carb cleaner. If the engine stays running on the carb cleaner try disconnecting the mass air flow sensor and see if the engine continues to run by itself. This is all taking for granted that there is not a security system problem. check if the security light keeps flashing while trying to start.

My Vauxhall rascal camper was running but losing power going up hills. Then wouldn't start. It did after jump starting the battery but then stopped again. It now won't start at all?


Hi Anonymous:
Sounds like you may be dealing with more than one problem, so best to attack them one at a time:
1) Won't Start:
- Remove and charge battery. Will it hold a charge?
- Will vehicle start with fully charged batter?
- If not, is it turning over?
- Spark at the plugs?
- Fuel delivery?
2) Losing power on hills:
- Engine maintenance history?
- Air filter, spark plugs, engine temp when performance drops.
I'd start by getting it running, and then tune it. My Grand Dad had a Vauxhall and as I recall, high performance was NOT on it's list of attributes.
If you reply as a comment on this thread I will get notified. If you post again as a separate problem I may miss it.
Cheerfuls,
Ted

How do I get my string trimmer to start


Sounds like its a petrol supply problem,need to check for a flow into the carb and if you have fuel then strip and clean the carb out as no doubt its full of muck from the dried petrol ,you should always drain the carb and squirt some oil into it when leaving it over winter

What exactly does max a/c and norm a/c do; the difference, and performance? What does recirc do and why is it available during max, norm, and bilev but not during defrost? The same a/c properties are...


Hello: Max cooling is when the recirculate door opens. With the recirculate door open, 80% of the air flow comes from inside of the car and 20% is outside air. That makes the cooling more efficient. Normal a/c operation is 100% of airflow comes from the outside. These settings have nothing to do with compressor operation. Also Decreasing or increasing the amount of cooling has nothing to do with compressor operation, what that does is control the amount of air going from the evaporator core either through or past the heater core. The a/c compressor runs the same amount of time regardless of settings on the control panel. Also in cool weather the compressor runs in the defrost mode to keep the windows from fogging up. None of these settings affect performance, the only time performance is affected is wide open throttle (WOT) in that mode the engine computer shuts off the compressor to allow max power of the engine, ie: passing gear.. When A/C is selected the compressor is on, none of the settings will affect gas mileage, ie, low/high, max/normal 60 degree or 90 degree.

The battery light on my car came on. I assumed it needed a charge or I needed a new battery. My car stopped, however, when jumped it would not stay on. I was advised by my brother that it is most likely...


There seems to be a no charge state in this case. i recommend checking the charging system. use the procedure below to isolate this issue.

Wear protective eye wear and clothing and remove all jewelry when checking your battery and charging system. Jewelry is a good conductor of electricity and is not recommended. Most batteries wear out every 3 to 5 years and need to be replaced. Always replace your battery with an equal replacement battery to assure proper operation. Automotive batteries have a +positive terminal (red), - negative terminal (black). Electricity is stored in the battery and then supplied to the vehicle when the engine is not running. While the engine is running the vehicles alternator charges the battery for future use. (Note: never disconnect the battery while the engine is running. If the battery cable is disconnected from the battery a spark can be generated which can cause the battery to explode or a major electrical malfunction to occur.)

To check a battery surface voltage, remove the positive terminal protective cover. Connect the +positive side meter lead (red) to the positive side battery terminal. Connect the - negative (black) side meter lead to the negative battery terminal. With the vehicle not running and the car sitting over night the battery voltage should be between 12.5 and 12.8 volts.(You will need to use a voltmeter for this testing procedure)

The alternator is rotated by a drive belt driven by the vehicles engine while it is running. Electrical voltage and amperage are generated to recharge the battery and supply voltage to the electrical system of the car. The alternator is held in place with mounting bolts. There is a main electrical wire on the rear of the alternator that supplies voltage to a main voltage junction box. If your alternator is not charging properly, your battery will slowly drain down from operating all the electrical systems in your car and stop the car from running.(most non charge states will be the cause of a loose belt or a low tension rate, due to a mis-adjusted alternator. make sure you have enough tension in the belt for full rotation of the alt pulley)

Next, you will need to check the alternators output with the Amp meter.

Testing the amperage output of the alternator is good for measuring the amount (not the level) of voltage the alternator can produce. This test can be tricky because if the alternator is weak it can still show it as producing amperage. Which is good, but if the voltage is low, it will still allow the battery to go dead. To check the amperage output of an alternator an amp meter is needed. Once the meter is connected start the engine. Next turn on all electrical accessories and raise the engine idle to about 1200 RPM. The alternator should output the max amperage it was designed to produce. Example: a 90 amp alternator should output about 88 amps. Note: An alternator cannot sustain maximum output for long periods of time. If the alternator is forced to operate at maximum output it will overheat and fail. An alternator is designed to operate at max amperage output only for a reasonable amount of time.

((Connect the voltage meter lead the same way you would in a battery static voltage check, Start engine (do not drive) at engine idle the voltage should be between 13.6 to 14.3 volts. If not the alternator may need replacing.)))

Baterry wont stay charged


Recharge battery then Start the car run to normal operating temperature. Disconnect the negative battery cable, the black one, from the battery.If the car stalls replace the Alternator. If the car keeps running then the alternator is Ok.Replace the Battery.Good Luck.

98 gmc 2500 intermittent starting 7.4l engine. started one day went to store now wont start, went under it seems the starter kinda clunks once and does nothing, its like the starter drive engauges but does...


There are only two problems with electrical circuits. Too much amperage or too little amperage.We have to determine what you have.
An excellent test is to put your test meter red lead on the positive battery post and the black lead on the negative battery post. Crank the engine and record the voltage. Then place the red meter lead on the starter's battery terminal and the black lead on the negative battery post. Again crank the engine and record the voltage. The two voltages should be with in one half volt of each other. If the voltage difference is greater that one half volt, there is a resistance in the circuit, somewhere. I would expect the voltage to drop a volt or two, max
If the voltage dosent drop, there is high resistance resulting in low amperage. If the voltage drops too low then there is low resistance resulting in high amperage.
High resistance=dirty terminals
Low resistance = shorted wire, slow turning cranking motor maybe caused by bad starter, bad battery or hard to turn engine. ( engine bad, alternator or power steering pump bad, a/c pump bad, etc)
Can use head light for test. Turn on lights and note the brightness. Crank engine. If while cranking, the lights stay bright= high resistance.
If lights go dim = low resistance.
