Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a serious clatter in the left side of the motor on a sportsman 850. It did this last fall as well, but after sitting for a month started and ran fine and quiet.

It happened again this summer and I left it sit for a month. This time it is not getting better as it sits

SOURCE: 1997 jeep grand cherokee cranks long time before starting

generally your problem can be traced to a faulty anti-drainback valve in the fuel pump. After sitting for an extended time fuel must be re-filled and pressurized before engine will start. Second primary cause is a leaking fuel injector which does the exact same thing from the other end of the system but, this is also accompanied by a puff of smoke after starting.
Other causes can be low comrression from engine wear, or, a weak ignition coil but these are far less common.

SOURCE: I have a 1993 tioga motorhome with a ford 460

I'd be tempted to have fuel pressure checked, if at all possible, when it quits. If nothing else, carry a can of quickstart with you, and when it quits, remove air intake at throttle body inlet, and open throttle plate and give a good squirt of quick start, then try to start it. If it starts for a second or 2, then you know you have spark, but no fuel. I've seen fuel pumps work good while cool, and cut -out when it gets hot. Then sit and let pump cool off for 20 minutes or so, then pump up to pressure again and away we go, until it gets hot again. You might also find if you park in the shade, you'll get further, or even on a full tank. Another good idea would be to change fuel filter in case fuel pump is working too hard pushing fuel through a plugged filter, and causing low fuel pressure.

Hi! I have a queen size hydraulic lift mobital storage bed. We've had it for 2 years and after about 6 months, when we sit on the left side, it makes a REALLY loud "Thump!" And now the bed is...

Call the manufacturer and see if there are any service intervals for it. As all thing mechanical need service over time parts wear.

Also look for obvious signs of wear and broken parts underneath.

Oil Pressure Problems on a 1988 Iszuzu Trooper

This engine is only the 4ZE1 2.6L EFI in the USA spec-models. The engine will run for a very long time with proper maintenance. Oil pressure falling only after warm-up indicates that the oil, when cold, is thick enough to make the pressure sending unit sense the oil. When it heats up the sending unit may not detect it as the oil thins out. The sending unit is what makes the gauge give an indicator its signal.

I would check the sending unit first, as your concern does not indicate a clattering engine or other problem. This model engine has a circuit that shorts the ignition to ground and kills the engine if the oil pressure ACTUALLY falls below a set minimum. Indicators of this problem are a loud clattering in the engine, as well an engine that will start and then stall for no reason.

Good luck!

Need to change coils on 98 expedition cylinders 3 and 8 but do not know which are 3 and 8

#1,2,3,4 are on the passenger side or right side when sitting in the vehicle,starting from the front of the engine towards the firewall---#5,6,7,8 are the left side starting from front of the engine toward the firewall.Both sides are in order so the front right side(as you are sitting in the vehicle) the #3 coil is the 3rd one back,and #8 is the left side(as you are sitting in the vehicle)last one before the firewall

Part number for electic motor t5hat turns odometer 1994 volvo 850 turbo

What you probably need are the two gears that actually sit inder that motor. Those are the usual culprits when your odometer fails. There are 2 and they are around $25 each and can be purchased from . Do them both or you'll be tearing your dash back apart to get the other one within 6 months of fixing the first one. The whole process takes 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete. Here's a good tutorial on it:

When stationary and slowly turning left, left hand wheel vibrates.

I would normally say that you perhaps have a CV joint going out, or even the possibility of having a brake caliper that's sticking, but you're saying that the driver's side wheel vibrates? I'm guessing that you're referring to the front driver's side wheel. However, I don't understand how it would be vibrating while sitting still. If you have a vibration while also sitting still it's possible that you have a motor mount that's bad. Most of today's motor mounts have a rubber insert to help to deaden any possible vibrations that the motor might have. Over time, these rubber inserts tend to break down, crack and eventually fall out of the mount altogether. Make sure to check this, as having your motor rocking back and forth under the hood, even just a little bit, will eventually cause further issues if not tended to. If your motor mounts are good, then I'd most likely refer back to the first couple of possibilities that I mentioned. Hope this proves to be helpful and have a nice morning!
