Easy mate ,another good man whos left the trade disgruntled ,you get covered in oil and grease and socially outcast because of it ,anyway get a G clamp and apply a slight pressure and with a nice pair of snap on water pump pliers wind the pistons in, better if assistant turns G clamp whilst you turn piston or buy the special tool that pushes and turns at the same time

Low power

if it revs a lot but doesn't actually speed up, that means the clutch is slipping. This can occur if transmission oil is LOW but also the clutch plate is a wearable item and does need replacing once worn out. Your actual transmission should be ok if this is all the problem is. The clutch is essentially what transfers the power from the engine to the transmission, through the use of the clutch pedal. the clutch is made up of a clutch disc, and a pressure plate, and a pilot bearing, more or less.

The clutch disc acts sort of like a brake pad, and sits in between the pressure plate and the flywheel. When you let off of the clutch pedal, the pressure plate contacts the clutch disc, and pushes it against the flywheel, locking the transmission and motor together, thus transferring engine power to the transmission.

When the clutch wears out, the clutch disc no longer has enough friction material to effectively 'lock' both together, and the full power can no longer be transferred, which is when the transmission slips. Eventually the car won't move if it isn't replaced.

In my opinion it'd be in your best interest to take it to your local dealer and have them check it out.

This is a common issue with any transmission of a car, and it is a fairly straightforward fix, however it may be somewhat pricey as it is a labor intensive job.

KrThe 1998 Hyundai Elantra didn't want to start but a few hours later it did but after driving it a few times it hasn't started again. The mechanics replaced the starter but it still didn't work and said...

Usually swaping engines is cheaper than fixing the problem. If it is the bearings locking up thengine, then yes it would save you money to replace the engine with a used one. Unless you plan on doing the work your self, then bearings and a crank would be cheaper than the engine.

The car wont start and i tried a starter and checked all the grounds and it wants to start but it wont turn enough to start the car then it clicks and im not sure what to do next !

Worn down copper contact plates in the starter motor. The contact plates can be replaced with new ones for about $6. You will need to get the motor out and take the end of it off to access the contact plates. The two contact plates are bolted on so it is just a matter of unbolting them and and using the same bolts substitute them with the new ones. While you are doing this job put your battery on a charger so that when you are completed you are ready to kick some new life into the old beast. Do not oil any of the parts inside the starter motor assembly it only encourages dirt to stick to everything and before long the starter will fail completely.

How to replace front bearings on a 94 3000 Gt

If you are mechanically inclined, you can remove the tires, brake caliper, pads, assembly, disc. Remove, drive shaft nut. Disconnect tie rod end, strut, push out of place the drive shaft. Then you have to remove the ball joint nut that holds the knuckle in place and lastly you will have to send the knuckle to a machine shop to have the bearing pressed out or if you have a press, you are gold...
As you can see, it is quite some work, but it can be done under 2 hours each side.
The good news is that once you have them swaped and everything put back together. The car will feel a million times newer ;) (the "like on rails" feel)

Without warning my x type will not turn the starter motor despite all dash lights looking normal tried bump start but feels like immobiliser kicked in have also tried spare key

There is usually a light on the instrument cluster that tells you if hte immobiliser has disabled the starter. Something like a key with an X through it or something similar. See if that light is illuminated. If not, check the obvious things like fuses. Jags ignition switches have been known to have a short life span. You may need a new ignition switch and that should be done by a professional mechanic. Good luck.

My son's 2003 jag-s type with 4.2 engine needs new water pump.

its simple, you will not have any trouble. after you loosen the bolts for the water pump pulley, take the belt off, then take pulley off,take water pump off... 5 bolts. I would buy factory JAG parts, the book says to replace the bolts, torque to 8nm + 90 degrees
