My sunroof doesn't close

This could be a couple of problems. Check to see that there is nothing in the sunroof track. Believe it or NOT you may even have a worn sunroof motor. Over time it can drag down needing replaced. Need more old is the Vehicle & does the sunroof open real slow in reverse direction. Are you able to close it helping along with your hand and the sunroof motor as well?

The sun roof won't close all the way shut. it opens ok and closes but won't lock shut

there shoulde be a hand crank (looks like a bent up allen wrench type thing) in the glove box...
there is a small hole in which it fits on the roof pannel... hand crank it tight to seal from inclimate weather.
Sounds like the switch is misalligned somehow.. and is stoping the glass short of full closed..
Open the glass full open and check the track area for debries and clear it out if there is any found.

use the tool to close the roof fully ...

The low fuel sensor works on an open circuit. When you have a full tank, the float floats up, closing a micro-switch. With this switch closed, the circuit is complete and the light is off. When you get to a low fuel level, the float floats down, opening the micro-switch. This in turn sends a power signal to your dash, bringing the light on. Now if their is a broken wire in the system, it will act the same as the fuel level being low. As these wire are usually in a vulnerable spot underneath the vehicle, it is common for them to get damaged. Inspect the wiring first, and if nothing is found, suspect the micro switch could possibly be stuck closed and/or faulty itself. Goodluck, please let me know how you go with the problem.

Blower works fine but air is not hot

have you checked your radiator fluid? it full?..if not, fill it, and see if that makes any difference.
if it is full you may have a thermostat that is stuck..
normally your thermostat will stay shut when u 1st start your engine. 1 of your rad hoses will be hot, while the other will stay cool / cold.
untill the thermostat opens, then both hoses will be hot.
watch your hands/arms near the fan.

your thermostat could be stuck completely open, completly closed, or even part way open...but is a cheap part to change.
let me know if this helps you at all.

My 1992 mazda mx3 is 180 degrees out of time. my camshaft and crank are both at 12oclock position and my distributor is in right can harmonic balancer be on wrong?

No. The crankshaft turns 2 times for every one turn of the camshaft. You need to watch the valves as you turn the engine over. As you near TDC the intake will be open and start to close. As you move past TDC the intake is closed and the exhaust starts to open. When the valves open and close in this order that is the correct TDC to line your distributor up with.
You will have to remove the timing belt to fix this. Simply rotate the camahaft another full turn watching as it does and you should be right. HOWEVER, if you have a zero tolerance or interference engine you will have to remove the head before you can fix this. If you don't then you will bend valves even turning it by hand. Hope this helps.

I turn on the A/C on my 2000 Dodge Caravan and I get a clicking sound comming from the Passingers side by the vent no cool air comming out, I put a AC gage and it said my AC is full can you tell me the...

Over a bump eh? I think you found your answer, it is obviously sticking there at that door. Listen for that noise & locate source & see if it can be opened up anywhere close, even slightly to give you a chance at trying to clear area by door or apply some lube, like vaseline. You might even try hitting that area with hand to get it to keep moving & it might work itself loose after moving it back & forth enough.

Your transmission is slipping. You need to get it rebuilt or replaced very soon as it will stop working completely soon.
