Your car is equiped with a sensor to know if the boot is open or not as to worn the driver if it was open. It could be that it came a little loose and needs to 1- be adjusted by a body shop. 2- replace the sensor

My 1992 ford f-150 flareside passenger power window dropped but the motor still works, whats wrong?

Glass has come off track or the window regulator has either broken or came off track. Remove the door panel to find out.

The porcelain spark plugs keep on cracking when the car is being used

Is the porcelain "cracking" or are they getting "carbon-tracked"? (see example photo of carbon-tracked plug below).
It is common for carbon-tracking to occur if your original plugs were carbon-tracked and you replace the plugs without replacing the wires. If the plug is carbon-tracked, the boots on the wires or the coil boots (coil-on-plug ignition) are also carbon-tracked. If you do not replace the wires or the coil boots, the ignition will still misfire by following the carbon-track on the inside of the boot. This will cause your new plugs to also be carbon-tracked within a short period of time (days or weeks).

There is no reason I can think of for the porcelain itself to actually crack other than faulty installation techniques or possibly, cold liquids getting poured on extremely hot plugs.

My driver window has stopped working but the motor seems to still work maybe window is off track? i dont know how to open door panel to see whats wrong with it?

if you can hear the motor working but the winodwo is not coming up then it is probably out of the track.. there should be only a few screws holding the door panel on. remove it and put the window in down position. Then you can use your hands to work the window up. When you get it in the up position you can see through the door where the tracks are. Just lower the window back down in the tracks. But first put some good adhesive or silicone in the very bottom track that the windows rests in so that the window will stay attached to the bottom track.. once you have done that, raise the winding using the switch and leave the window in the up position until you are sure the adhesive is dry.

Car window is off track

what happens with these grand amsare that the windows have whats called a sash glued to the bottom side of the window, and bolts to the regulator. it has one for each track of the regulator. one of them has broke or the glue came loose. the window must be removed, and id the sash is broke you can buy a replacement from the dealership. and urethane it on. run a tape line on the glue edges as a guide then remove old glue glass prime and urethane back on. sashes are not expensive I've replaced many

How do I remove door panel to get to the motor ?

Ive yet seen a jeep window come off track. sounds like your window regulator is broke but hopefully im wrong. anyways, remove all the screws some have cover over them, just remove the cover and youll see some sort of screw. Then pull out and try not to breake the plastic clips that pop into door. its pretty easy once you just look at if for a min. let me know if you have anymore questions about this
