It sounds like your strut snapped its rod. Jack up the car near that wheel. Leave the tire on. Grab the top of the tire and pull it toward you. If the strut is bad it will move toward you a little bit, maybe 2 inches. Once you have it moving look over the top of the tire and see if the metal rod coming out of the strut is moving back and forth. If it is then you need a new strut. This is a VERY common problem with those cars. They have some of the worst rear struts ever made.

Replaced some brake line, rear pads and one rear wheel cylinder. Now no pressure and nothing happening when trying to bleed.


Does the car have ABS ? And does it have an equalizer block for the 4 wheels ?
It sounds like the ABS has been affected, or there is an equalizer block that is stuck on the front wheels only.
Can you open the bleeder or the rear line on the master cyl and get fluid to come out by depressing the pedal ?

The brake pedal on my 94 S10 goes to the floor and I have no brakes, how do I check for leaks by myself


First look under the hood (drivers side) at the master cylinder. Make sure everything looks dry in that area, especially where the master cylinder bolts to the power brake booster. If it looks dry there, and you know you haven't spilled fluid in that area for the life of the vehicle. Then look under the dash-board (drivers side also) to see if there's any indication of wetness near the brake pedal push-rod (the push-rod is located all the way up the brake pedal's 'steal lever', towards the top) - look where the push-rod comes through the firewall. If it's wet there, or under the hood near the "Master Cylinder" then it's a bad/leaky Master Cylinder. If everything checks ok in that area you are going to have to check the insides of all of the wheels for any signs of leakage near the brake calipers (in the front wheels) and brake "wheel cylinder's" for the rear wheels, unless the vehicle has 4wheel disc brakes; therefore you will also check the calipers in the rear wheels. The only other thing that come's-to-mind is the "proportioning valve" which was common to leak on the S-10's from my experience in the past... Other then that, the only other thing left from what I have mentioned thus far, is broken or cracked brake lines anywhere in the system.

It looks like my back tires are tilted in at the top a little. any reason why? is it driveable


if you noticed this when it hasn`t been taken off of a hoist then have the rear suspension components checked for loosness or worn components.if these are good then have a 4 wheel alignment done to check for proper alignment of the rear wheel angles,this sounds like the rear camber maybe off.if its very slightly tilted in and the tire wear is normal then it could be something you didn`t notice before until now and think there is a problem

If your rear diver side tire is tilted inward at the top what can that mean. on a 2000 Ford Taurus.


If your car is front wheel drive, this probably means one of three things. 1. Your axle is bent, and you need to have it replaced. This would probably cause a bouncing motion in your car as you are driving. 2. Your suspension parts are bad on that wheel. For this you can take a look without removing any parts from the car. Just look behind the wheel at the spring that is there. Is the spring broken? Your car will probably be sitting very low on that corner if this is the case. If t is not your spring, there should be a shock or strut (just looks like a hydraulic tube either in the middle of the spring, or right next to it. Is this part fully compressed? If so, you will need it replaced ... if not, then you have a different issue. 3. Your tire might not be bolted on as tightly as it should be. Jacking up the car and tightening the lug nuts will fix this problem.
The only other thing I could think it would be (which is very unlikely considering that it is a rear tire) would be tie-rod ends. The way to check this is to jack up the car and push on the tire -- top and bottom, then left and right. If the lug nuts are tight, and the tire moves up and down or left and right, then you probably have bad tie-rod ends and they will need to be replaced. This is VERY unlikely on the rear tires of a car because the tie rods are a part of the steering system. The only car that I have heard of that COULD have this issue would be a Honda Prelude 4WS (it has steering parts on all 4 wheels -- 4ws = 4 wheel steering).
If none of these are the problem, you might have a bent rim, but this is also VERY unlikely, because a rim bent enough to notice visually will usually not hold a tire.

Loose or damaged wiring in the steering colum. I'd suggest having a professional repair done, most likely the steering wheel will have to be removed and there's a chance of setting off the airbag. Dangerous and expensive.

Change rear spark plugs 1994 cutlass supreme 3.4


If you got small hands and long arms, you can change the rear spark plugs with the right extensions and swivel spark plug socket. You can get to all three from the top and leaned over the passenger side of the car.
If you need more room, your going to have to tilt the engine forward. Here is how it's done, with the transmission in park and parking brakes on with a block at the BACK wheels. Undo the two dog bone motor mount at the front of the engine, once disconnected with a friend.
Push the car forward once your release the parking brakes, push it just far enough that you tilt the engine forward and not in to the radiator. Once that is done, put on parking brakes and place block at the BACK wheels again, so we don't lose an arm.
This should give you more room to get to the rear spark plugs and yes everything is done by touch to get the plugs out and most likely your going to have to replace the spark plug wires. The old ones will be harder to remove then the front ones and a spark plug wire pliers will works best to removing them.
Thank you for using fixy and be safe, after spark plugs replaced, just reinstall everything the revers.

The problem is the rear thermostatic expansion valve (TXV).
It is behind the left rear quarter trim panel.You can pull the panel back to access the valve to make sure that that is the noise.If so you will nedd to have AC system evacuated and replace valve and recharge the system. The part number is YF2Z-19849-AA.
