Maybe try to relieve fuel pressure using a pressure gauge with a release valve into a mechanic's rag.

Check that the injectors are clicking when running. Eventually the air should be purged out of the fuel system as you crank it.

Don't smoke around gasoline.

Good luck on this repair.

My 2003 ford mustang is sputtering and the check engine light is blinking no code


You can get a free scan from Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance auto parts. This should indicate a problem. If the standard test scanner does not verify a problem, the Dealers have more advanced scanners which can capture intermittent problems.

There are so many possibilities that you need more tests to find the problem. Offhand, if this is a V6 engine, there were problems with intake Manifold runners and sandwich gaskets for 2 piece intake manifolds.

Stuck manifold runners could provide lousy low rpm performance and perfect high rpm performance just like you describe whether a V6 or V8. The 2 piece intakes were used on V6 engines and once you get above midrange in Rpm, it could run acceptably at higher Rpm.

I need to replace the thermostat for my 2000 Isuzu Rodeo, V6 3.2 Liter LS model? I see that it is on top of the engine under the intake. What steps do I take to remove the intake. Will the top and bottom...


remove fuel pump fuse and start car when it dies try to start again, no more spluttering just cranking, the fuel system is now depressurised. you can now disconnect both of the quick disconnect fuel lines at rear lower section of inlet manifold this is hard to get to some access this by removing the EGR valve so you can get your arms down there watch out for sharp edges of manifold. you dont need to take the top section of the inlet manifold off but will need new lower inlet manifold gaskets to haed.once manifold is off block all intake ports with rag or put tape over ports to stop dirt and stuff falling into ports while continuing to work on the coolant pipes below to get to thermostat.undo only 4 long centre bolts and the 4 nuts, one in each corner(no.3 in picture).

stevenhurc_7.jpgyou dont need to remove throttle body but some people do.

I have a 96 grand am and it started leaking coolant from somewhere around the manifold, i can't tell exactly where it's coming from. Does anyone know it that could be the termostat?


If its a v6 engine and the leak is by the intake manifold, then you need to replace the intake manifold gasket. This is a very, very common problem on all of GM's v6 engines. It will cost you about $350-$400 for this repair.

I need to replace an ignition coil and plug on my 04 Ford Escape. Is this a difficult task? Can someone provide instructions?


If you have a V6 and it's like my 2002 V6, it will depend on with plug/coil you need to replace. The front 3 are very easy to replace. For the back 3, you'll need to remove the upper intake manifold (get a gasket set from the parts store).
Assuming it's a COP system (Coil Over Plug), each plug has it's own coil. Unplug the wires from the coil. Remove the one bolt with an 8mm? socket. Pull the coil off the plug. Using the correct socket, remove the plug.
If you have to remove the manifold for the back 3 plugs/coils, that will be more complicated. I would recomend going to:
http://escape-central.com
Add do a search for "intake manifold remove".
One of the first one's will have excellent instructions and photos.
