Replace the fuel pressure regulator, it isn't holding pressure
It's on the fuel rail on the passenger side, and are quite fond of failing on Ford engines. It is really simple to change, only two bolts, and not even that hard to access

RE worded Hesitation issues on occasions tonight drove 15 miles stopped put in gas. Drove off got about 1000 yards engine just died had to cost to a space tried to start cranks but wont run?


Do basic testing. When in failed mode, check for spark. I suspect ignition module or coil, as these parts fail when hot and when you turn off running engine it gets hotter before it cools. Hard to diagnose because when you remove module to test, by the time you get to a parts store to test it's really cool again. Make them run test three times and tap with a pencil as you test.

My chevy 95 Tahoe has been parked for a while with no battery, now I put a new battery, it cranks but won't sta st?


I ran into a similar problem with a Cavalier, turns out that the on-board computer needs to have constant power. Even if the battery is very low or even dead, it still has to be connected. If the battery is removed it breaks the circuit and stops the command that lets the engine start. After the new battery was installed it would crank but not start, the dealership told me that I had to have it towed to them to have the comp reset, which would have cost around $150 total. Thankfully a mechanic friend of mine had a diagnostic machine and was able to reset it for me - cost me a case of beer. He then showed me a (not so simple) trick around this for the future. Once it is running again remember this. 1 Have the new battery and jumper cables ready, 2 Loosen the battery terminals on the dead battery but DON'T take them off. 3 Connect jumpers to the car battery cables and to the new battery, like you were jump starting from just the new battery. 4 Remove the terminal cables from the dead one in the car and remove dead battery (be careful not to let them come off the cables OR the good battery) it's OK if it disconnects briefly, but reconnect it A.S.A.P. 5 Put the new battery in and connect the terminals BEFORE removing jumper cables. Once they're on the terminals just take away the jumpers and tighten the nuts. That's how you change a battery without letting the car ever lose power. Hope that helps Jose. Good luck, safe driving.

A few days ago, I went to start it. It started fine (has a new battery) but then without me turning the key, it starts again and I hear a pop. I turn off ignition. It would not start again after that


> only one relay in engine compartment is marked.

Check the inside of any cover you removed, there is often a legend (key) molded into the cover.

Where is the crankshaft sensor on a 3.8L in a 97 buick lesaber


Hi,
The sensor is located to the right of the crankshaft behind the vibration dampner (harmonic balancer). You will need a balancer puller and a special tool to space the new sensor correctly.
(can be done also with eye spacing, but the tool is recommended to ensure proper spacing as to prevent damage to new sensor and / or harmonic balancer.) You will also need a strap wrench to hold balancer pulley in place while removing and re-installing balancer to crankshaft bolt. (helper required)

Procedure for replacement:
Remove negative battery cable.
Set parking (emergency) brake.
Release tension on serpentine drive belt and remove belt from harmonic balancer pulley. ( large pulley at bottom of engine)
Break loose lug nuts on passenger side front tire, do not remove bolts yet.
Raise and support vehicle on passenger side, remove wheel.
Remove plastic splash guard (cover) from passenger side wheel well.
Remove dampner / balancer center retaining bolt (counterclockwise, it is torqued very tight.) Use a strap wrench around pulley and have a helper hold that in place while using a 1/2" breaker bar and socket to turn pulley bolt out of crankshaft. Be careful not to rotate engine in a counterclockwise direction while breaking the bolt loose.
Using balancer puller, remove dampner / balancer pulley from engine.
You will now see the crank sensor to the right of the crankshaft bolted to the timing cover.
Disconnect sensor wiring and remove retaining bolts, remove sensor.
Put new sensor in place and screw in bolts, do not tighten them yet.
Reconnect wiring to sensor.
Now use special tool to properly space sensor. If you cannot find one at the parts store, you can space the sensor with the balancer pully held in place (not installed yet) and space the sensor evenly with the veins on the hub of the balancer pulley. Take your time and be sure it is as evenly spaced as possible.
Tighten sensor bolts.
Clean balancer hub free of any oil and dirt deposits using brake or carbeurator cleaner.
Reinstall balancer to crankshaft by tapping around the inner surface of pulley with a rubber hammer.
It is a press fit, so be sure you have it started evenly and progress slowly in a circular motion to ensure you are keeping it aligned straight with the crankshaft.
Reinstall balancer bolt using the same method as removal, torque bolt to 110 foot pounds, then tap around balancer again twice with rubber hammer, turn the engine 2 full revolutions clockwise using the balancer to crankshaft bolt, then tighten bolt an additional 1/4 turn.
Replace splash guard, put wheel on tightening lugs to finger tight and then wrench tight in a star pattern.
Lower vehicle until wheel makes contact with floor, tighten lug nuts to 115 foot pounds in a star pattern using a torque wrench.
Fully lower vehicle, remove jack.
Re-install serpentine drive belt
Re-connect negative battery cable.

End of procedure....Hope that helps!.....Mike

Have 1996 GMC Sonoma 2.2L engine. Have just replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter. The engine intermittently shuts down. After it siots a while it starts right up


i had the same problem with my 96 sonoma, just died anywhere at anytime, even happened to shop mechanics. They checked fuel and spark, there was none. Ended up putting a new computer on it and it has not happened again. The computer was not communicating with anything, just be sure that you get new comp. programmed to your vehicle. Had to send mine out and get done

Can't get the alternator out!!


You can remove the fan clutch to add additional space. 1.8 T or V6? On 1.8 T remove the turbo hose. You have 2 types of fan clutches. Usually a big nut on the fan which must be removed by blocking the pulley or holding it and turning the big nut as to tighten it (opposite threads.) Usually seized on a little heat is needed on the nut just being careful not to heat the clutch and damage it. Other model have an 8 mm allen in the back depending on the fan clutch. With this advanced you'll have more space to move the fan a little. If you have to remove the front it's really not as bad as you think. About 1/2 hr it'll be advanced. You don't have to take it all off just advance it without removing the rad hoses or a/c or radiator.

STARTER FOR 04 TOYOTA COROLLA


First, turn the key switch to LOCK. Disconnect the battery and wait a few minutes to make sure the airbag is disarmed. Remove the engine cover panels from below the engine. If you need more room, consider removing the air cleaner, upper radiator support, battery and tray and the coolant reservoir and hose.

Remove the starter wires then the starter. Pay attention to which bolt goes to which hole as they are different lengths. Putting it back together should be self explanatory. Good luck!

Please ask if you have any more questions. If this was helpful, please give me a good rating.
