Install a new cable or window regulator. It will just keep coming off,it's worn out/broke.

I have a 2002 Silverado Z71. When I purchased the vehicle the 4 wheel drive did not work. I took it to the shop and they said the Transfer Case Control Module was bad. I replaced it. Everything worked fine...

I would check to make sure the correct ECM is installed in this auto right away before adding anything else to this truck.Check it like the shop should have, this angers me so when i hear this stuff. Neither shop should have been paid for bandage solution. Then get back to me.

How to set cam timing on 1.6 16v zetec escort when there is no markings on pully wheels

There is a notch taken out of the rear of the cams, you have to remove the valve cover to see them, there is a tool you slide into the grooves to hold the cams in time, i made my own tool out of a piece of square steel rod.

Drivers side window has problems rolling back up. might be the wiring...

hi, if it has problems like it is slower than usual and/or gets stuck partial or half way up, you probably have a weak window motor. the motor itself has internal brushes that help the motor spin while engaging the electrical current to the stator. these brushes will become worn and get sticky due to the friction they produce when worn. if you can, remove the door panel and the inner splash guard(plastic liner) and roll the window down, then when rolling back up, apply pressure upward with you hand(help it back up). if it moves quicker, more freely, suspect the window motor. but you can also check the window guides for debris, or rough spots, this can affect the window speed also. the window guides are the part that the window slides in on the end of both sides. they will have rubber or foam linings. only other thing it could be is problems with the regulator. this is the unit that moves the window up and down with the input of the motor. i can't remember if your vehicle has a stamped steel regulator, or a wire driven regulator with plastic wheel. if it has a steel one, check to see if the arm isn't bent or weakened. if it has a wire guided regulator, check to see if there is fraying of the wire like it maybe about to break.

How to change timing belt

This is how 2.8TD.Remove the belts (fan and power steering)with a 10mm socket un-screw the plastic cover. To remove the bottom pully their is 3 small screws inside the pully (10mm or 12mm) unscrew them and take off the pully. Do not try to remove the big nut. Remove the plastic cover. Their is a small hole in all the drive wheel's their is a treaded hole in the engine block behind each one and a mark on the crank shaft. Turn the engine until the mark on the crankshaft is at the top then push the bolts ( metric course tread 12 or 13 mm head 4 to 5 ins long) through the holes in the drive wheel's and try to screw them in if they dont line up first time turn the crankshaft 1 turn and try again. When they all line up screw in the bolds this keeps the timing in place. Release the tention pully (the one with no tracks on and pushing against the back of the belt) remove the old belt replace. To tighten the tention pully put a small socket bar in the square hole turn until the belt is tight hold the preasure on the socket bar ant tighten the locking screw. Remove the screws job done.

Bad alternator

First, disconnect the Battery.
Then using a suitable pry bar or 1/2inch drive flex bar, pull the spring loaded idler pulley back, you will see the pulley if you look at your drive belt at the top,closest to you,(looks like an aluminum casting with a steel wheel connected to it. and you will see a small square opening where you place the drive end of your flex bar into.
Once you have rotated the idler pully far enough, you should be able to slip the drive belt off the pully.
Now, look at the rear of the Alternator, you will see a wiring block, maybe three wires coming from it, use a small screw driver to pry back the little locking tab on the plastic wiring connector,,(just as it enters the alternator)and pull the connector out.
If there is any other wires coming from the alternator, just disconnect them(if you have to remove any bolts to do this, make sure you re-connect the nuts back onto the connectors after removing the wire)after you have disconnected the wires,,you should be able to unbolt the alternator from it's support bracket.
P.S. if you do not have strong hands,,it would be wise at this point to ask a friendly neighbor to help you at this time.
After removal of the alternator,take the alternator down to your local parts store and ask them to test it for you(most parts supply stores will do this for No Charge) and if you need another alternator they will take the old one as a rebuildable core and take some money off your bill.
The re-installation is the reverse of the removal, while you are at it, check the condition of the alternator drive belt, if it is worn, or frayed at the sides,,or if you look at the driven surface(this is where you see the grooves) and you notice small cracks,,then you should replace the belt.
You should replace the belt anyway,if you can afford too,,,they are pretty cheap and doing so can save you some heart ache in the furure.

Tensioner pulley

This doesn't sound like a problem with your idler pulley to me, more like an axle or wheel bearing? But to check your pully just pull it back with the correct tool, some use a square 3/8 or 1/2 regular socket drive and a breakover works great. some you can just get the correct size boxend wrench on it and pull it back, after you have the tension off the belt remove the belt, spin idler pully and see if it is bad, try and wiggle the arm back and forth with a pry bar. it should have very little play in it. I hope this helps you Isolate your problem and Merry Christmas!
