Have someone put their ear to the gas filler tube with the cap off. Turn the key on, (not over) a few times. This will indicate if the fuel pump is working or not. They should hear a light buzzing sound in the tank.

Where do you check the transmission fluid?


PERFORM AN ELIMINATION OF ENGINE FLIUD CONTAINERS TO ACQUIRE THE TRANSMISION CHAMBER

The vehicle should only have an engine oil compartment, radiation compartment for antifreeze/ water, power steering fliuds, a water wiper blade spray dispenser compartment, and finally the transmittion fliud container area all situted within the engine entrapment area. Usually, opening the engine for the first time would require observing the fliud compartments that are identifyable from the remaining engine chambers. Observing closely on the fliud container should have written descriptions of what is expected within compartment. For example, the water fliud containers for wiper blades would usually have written lables as wiper blade fliud container, radiantion container would usually have the antifreeze demarkation logos visibly observable when engine is opened. Rely by elimination methods to ascertain the transmission fliud compartment. For example, once antifreze container, wiper water container, engine oild container, power steering fliud containers have been identified, the most like only remaining in the engine would be the transmition fliud compartment. Alternately, every fliud container within the vehicle engine is situated at separate areas. For example, the only fliud container closest to the transmittion chamber is the engine oil compartment. The vehicles usually require more engine oil than transmission fliud. Between both fliud containers, the smallest chamber for fliud oil is usually for transmission perposes in the absence of hydraulic fliud compartments with newer vehicles.

Corolla has been sitting on driveway for year and a half now without being started. What kind of maintenance can I do to get car up and running?


Oil change with oil filter replaced, air filter change, gas would be an issue to you might have water running in the fuel lines when u try to start it, drop some fuel injector cleaner in your gas tank and bring some fresh gas as well. charge the battery well and give it a run. Then check your brake discs or drums for any rust that builds up especially if you live in a winter state with snow coming through.

Good luck.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.

My car has been sitting in my garage for 4 months should i change the oil what else do you reccomend i do to the car


If it needs and oil change, change it. If you haven't been driving it then no I wouldn't worry about the oil if it looks good. Pull out the dipstick, is the oil honey colored, maybe a little darker like maple syrup? If so it is good, if it is black and runs off the dip stick like water, change it. As said above check your tire pressure. Also check your tranny fluid, when a transmission sits over concrete for extended periods of time it "draws" out fluid, so if there is some spots on the ground I'd check the tranny fluid (People will say I'm crazy but I've seen it happen to the tranny fluid). Also I'd suggest checking the battery wells if your battery has them. Finally I would start the car if possible atleast ten minutes a month while it is sitting in the garage for extended periods, or if it is not going to be driven/started for a while add fuel stablizer to keep your gas good. If everything looks good (four months isn't that long) you are probably ok. If it gets cold where you are, and the garage wasn't heated, and the tank wasn't full of gas add some heat or something to take water out of the tank due to condensation.

After having the transmission fluid and filter changed on a Regal GS supercharged, the transmission seems to sometimes slip when starting from a stop. I step on the gas to go and after a half second or so...


Who changed the fliud? Maybe the wrong fluid was added. Also some transmissions have bands that can be adjusted. Just be easy on it. You don't wont to burn it out.
