If its the one mounted on the distributer then you need a special tool, a regular socket wont fit in the hole. these tools are cheap at kragens/autozone etc.

Steering wheel adjustment , the steering whell is 90degrees off but the car does not pull eather direction. car was stolen no damage just steering whell truned


jack front of car up then turn steering wheel full lock to full lock and count the number of turns from either side then divide by 2 so you have the straight ahead position then remove the steering wheel and replace in the straight ahead position ,iam saying this because the vehicle may have been re tracked and only one track rod end adjusted so you have say 2 turns to the left and 2 and half to the right if you follow me .or remove the steering wheel then just hold it on and slowly drive forewards and lift wheel and refit to the correct position

I have a 1988 Ford F250 4x4 with a 4.9 straight 6 engine. It will run about 15 min's then just shut down. I will wait for about one hour for it to cool off then it starts up runs for about 15 min's then...


I would replace the distributor stator and the TFI ignition module both of which are in and on the distributor. Use Ford OEM parts (Motorcraft) as after market fail very quickly.

How do i get the ignition switch off my 1997 vw golf i took off the safety boly steering wheel and all plug conectors just left with shaft and spring


This is a how-to from VWVortex.com

You WILL need the following,
10MM wrench
13MM wrench and socket or another wrench.
a eyeglasses phillips head screwdriver. (very small)
a regular size phillips head screwdriver
new ignition switch
vice grips (may not need them)
Instructions.
1. lock the steering wheel, and make note where it was just incase.
2. disconnect the battery with 10mm wrench.
3. remove the plastic around/behind the steering wheel by the two screws underneath using a phillips head screw driver.
4. now go under the dash, and remove the plastic peices covering up the steering wheel axel. and unscrew the bolt using a 13MM wrench&socket. Its a "U" joint.
5. Unplug everything behind the wheel including the ignition and the airbag.
6. using a vice grip, or your fingers if it is loose, to unscrew a gold bolt on the left side of the steering wheel column, its right behind the steering wheel on left underside.
7. Gently pull out the steering wheel, and the whole thing, including the axel, and steering wheel will comeout, be careful the end of it is greasy.
8. now with a small screwdriver (phillips), eyeglasses size is what i used, remove the screw where the ignition switch is, its a pretty long screw so it may take some time and it the switch wont come out until its fully unscrewed.
9. replace everything opposite of how it was took out.
Note- when your putting the steering wheel axel back, be sure to put back the large spring and align the axel correctly.

I need to change my ignition cylendar.


Ignition Lock Cylinder REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1997–99 Models CAUTION
Some models covered by this manual are equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Section 6. NOTE: Before continuing with this procedure, make sure to have available a new steering wheel retaining bolt and two lock cylinder retaining bolts. Once removed, these parts lose their torque holding ability (or retention capability) and must not be reused.
  1. If equipped, disarm the air bag system and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, remove the steering wheel.
  3. Remove the combination switch.
  4. Unplug the ignition switch wiring connectors.
  5. Remove the ignition and shifter interlock cable mounting bracket bolt and position the assembly to one side.
  6. Cut a groove in the ignition cylinder bracket bolts with a chisel and hammer or use a similar method.
  7. Using a screwdriver, remove and discard the bracket bolts.
  8. Remove the ignition switch lock cylinder and bracket. To install:
  9. Install the new ignition switch and the bracket into position on the steering column tube.
  10. Install the new lock cylinder bolts and tighten the bolts enough to hold the switch in position.
  11. Check for proper switch operation by rotating the key to each position. If necessary, reposition the lock cylinder until it operates properly.
  12. If positioned properly, tighten the retaining bolts until the bolt head shears off.
  13. Position the interlock cable bracket. Install and tighten the retaining bolt to 35–53 inch lbs. (4–6 Nm).
  14. Attach the wiring connector to the ignition switch.
  15. Install the combination switch.
  16. If removed, install the steering wheel.
  17. Connect the negative battery cable.
  18. Confirm operational status of the air bag system by turning the ignition key to the RUN position and visually monitoring the air bag indicator lamp in the instrument cluster. The indicator lamp should illuminate for approximately 6 seconds and then turn OFF. If the indicator lamp does not illuminate, stays ON, or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
  19. Check the steering wheel, horn and combination switch functions for proper operation.

Ignition module location


IT SHOULD BE ON THE DRIVERS SIDE FENDER, THE MODULE SHOULD BE A SILVER OR GRAY BOX WITH A COUPLE OF PLUGS ON IT, THE BOLTS THAT HOLD IT TO THE FENDER WILL NEED TO BE ACCESSED FROM INSIDE THE WHEEL WELL. THIS STYLE IGNITION CONTROL MODULE IS FAMOUS FOR GETTING HOT AND JUST TURNING OFF LEAVING YOU STRANDED, IN MOST CASES THE VEHICLE WILL RESTART AFTER THE MODULE HAS TIME TO COOL OFF.
