I have a 96 cadillac deville the head lights pulsate(not dashboard lights). does anyone have an idea why?

a lot of older cars do that. if you notice them coming towards you at night. It is usually a bad alt. or loose wires on the head lights or the plug ends are corroded inside the plug. Thee are many things you can imagine. Did it start doing this all of a sudden? or has this been a problen for a while now. Is that the reason you switched out the alts? I'd tend to go with the corroded wire pluds for the head lights. does it go along with the bouncing of the car or are they pulsating with a rythm. Does it do it while parked and running? It could be the voltage regulator, check it too. Good Luck

What are the parts you need to do a tune up ?

A basic tune-up would be spark plugs. Make sure you use a/c delco plugs! A major tune-up would include plugs, wire, cap, and rotor. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

your firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6, with the #1 cylinder being passenger side, front of engine (fan end), with 3 and 5 towards the firewall. 2-4-6 from front to firewall on drivers side. The #1 spark plug wire should go on the post of the distibutor pointing towards the #1 cylinder from the center of the cap, and then #2 is next in a clockwise motion, with 3, 4, etc. Hope this helps! chevy 2.8, good-day !

What is the best spark plug wire for a 1997 Cadillac Deville? Also the best plugs?

The best wires and spark plugs for any GM product is AC Delco. They are the original equipment manufacturers for all GM cars and trucks. They are designed to last at least 80,000 miles. With other brands, you cannot be sure how long they will last.

What size and type are the replacement plugs and wires for the 1995 gtp(grand prix)?

I have used all brands of spark plugs over many years...the AC Delco Platinum tip proves best for your Grand Prix...also use high quality plug wires not the cheapest (do not recommend Bosch plugs or wires...many issues of breakdowns) Ask the parts person what the plug gap should be, and measure and confirm this on each plug prior to installation...also highly recommend you use anti-seize libricant on the threads of the plugs...also recommend use electrical lubricant when installing th new for sealing and future service:)

Need wiring diagram for 1967 camaro v8 changed from external regulator to alternator with internal regulator

I am assuming you are now using a 1976 style GM alt.
The most common and popular model.
You need one 10 gauge wire from the battery to the alternator output.
This can be run directly from the battery +.
Run a short 10 gauge wire from alt output to large wire at regulator plug on alt.
Run small wire on alt reg plug to Bat light wire.
A new alt regulator plug pigtail can be bought at any parts store and is recommended.

The existing regulator should have the connections marked.
One of those wires will be the bat light wire if needed.
If you have a amp meter or voltmeter in the vehicle.....use your existing large output wire (usually red) to hook up to the new alt output connection.

Erratic Flickering of all electric devices (headlights, dashlights, AC)

Did you use a Delco rebuilt Alternator? The ones you get from so called discount auto parts stores are junk and they may be the cause of this problem, monitor the output of the system with a DVOM meter, does the voltage fluctuate? Have you check all the chassis grounds? They are the biggest source of this type of issue when the Alt. is ruled out.

How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.
