You are having what is called dieseling, this is caused by the carb not shutting off the fuel supply when you turn the car off. They have kits at kragen to repair this issue.

I have a 1988 2wd pickup and the starter won't


starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

Hi i have a 1996 probe trans went bad so i put a trans from a 1996 contour the bell houseing was different so i chained it i but it in and the trans wont shift right if i put it in dive it takes off in 3...


Your shifting module(netural park switch) on the trans has to line up with the mark or slot. Key on car off block wheels, put car in first and see where the module shifts and do the same for all the gears to see if they are lining up. All so check the shifting cable make sure its at the right length.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?

Transmission fluid 1988 vw scirocco


Put it down the dipstick tube that you check the trans fluid with using a funnel. Don't put much in at a time before you check the level - remember to check the level with engine running, trans warmed up after driving 15 minutes and the car in park with parking brake on. Put the fluid in and see what it does for your shifting.
