Why would a car have no temperature

Hello, I usually service another Brand, but I would say you should first look at the Sending unit for the water Temperature. There may be 2 sensors on the engine for water temperatures. 1 works the automatic cooling fan and the other goes to the dash gauge.

The part should be reasonable priced and if you go to a good parts supplier, they will have a photo of either sensor and should sell you the right one.

You probably need to drain of some of the coolant, rermove the sending wire and then unscrew the part. When reassembling, use some Teflon tape on the threads or a little ATV to insure a good seal.

If the gauge still does not work, do a continuity test of the wire from the sensor and see if it is not broken. If the wire is good, the sensor new, then it only could be a bad gauge.

I need to replace a foglamp bulb right side.I have fairly easy access to & can see the rubber housing for the bulb,but cannot figure out how to remove it.Do I need to rermove the entire assembly in...

Typically the fog lamp is located in the front bumper assembly. It's usually fairly easy to access and replace these.

Place the car is park, secure parking brake. Use a creeper to scoot under the front end of the car, look up into the bumper. Located the backside of the fog lamp holder. You would usually grab and twist counter clockwise about an inch, then pull straight out. Push in on the bulb while turning counter clockwise until it pulls out of the lamp holder.

These fog lamps usually have a little bit of cushioning grease in the socket. Do not remove the grease or connectivity problems will result with the new fog lamp. Push the new bulb in, turn clockwise until bulb stops turning, release hand pressure.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

piston has contacted the valves that stay open. they are bent and you need to remove the head and replace them and then reinstall the head with the #1 piston at top dead center and the cams for the #1 cylinder both pointing down, this is the end of the compression stroke and the begining of the power stroke. at this point on the valve train and valve springs are affecting the valves, keeping them open and the rocker arms are not affecting the valves and should both be loose. set distributor to fire on cylinder #1.
