Check the SPARK PLUGS, if its new u have to GAP the electrode! Check also the timing, go to ur nearest garage and have a TUNE UP! That ticking noise might be from the HIGH VOLTAGE that suppose to go to ur SPARK PLUG and leaking out to body ground, check also the distributor cap and hi-tension cable wire! Hope that might help u out! Taah!

Tractor has been stood, had new head gasket but smokes white smoke and loses power when warm. What is wrong with it.. Any ideas..

Run a radiator pressure test or test for carbon monoxide vapor in the radiator. You have a cracked head or block if the head gasket was installed correctly. Note the installation would include measuring the block and head for warp.

92 buick lesabre 97000 miles, on slow acceleration, @ 40mph going into 4th gear there is a mild chutter, same @ 50mph going into OD mild chutter and when down shifting from OD to 4th. All is when slow...

This sounds like a vacuum leak prob. At low acceleration there isn't quite enough vacuum for smooth shift.. But romp on it and it creates a vacuum at the same rate as your gas is getting sucked.

1999 chrysler cirrus lose brake pedal after stop pedal go to floor then lose all brakes

NOT A DO IT YOURSELF THING!! Please do everyone a favor and have your vehicle professionally looked at. Sounds like a master cylinder, but when you can't stop, everyone is at risk. Kinda stops today, and mayby not at all next time. Please be safe!

I crunk my car and then the gears want go into gear. The clutch went all the way to the floor. What could be the problem?

If you have low miles its most likely the slave cylinder. Its kinda like a master brake cylinder but its a smaller unit that is used for the clutch. Make sure the reservoir is full as they can leak. If its full it may be shot. If its empty its also shot and is leaking. Fill it up if its empty just to see if the clutch works so so. If it gets better then repalce the slave cylinder.

Floods out 5 times out of 10 when trying to start car. Have to wait an hr. before trying to start again..Also a lose of power when going up a hill. Blue smoke comes out the exhaust. Also It won't change...

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles. How did the engine oil get inside the cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

1990 5 speed Honda Accord DX 2 cylinders wont fire

Could be head gasket or piston rings. Piston ring issues will smoke under load or when revving the engine.

Do a compression test.

Head gasket/ timing etc

Not 100% sure on that engine, but I'd be looking at my timing chain & gears, especially if gears have nylon teeth. Pull covers & have a look at condition & positioning for correct. Other thing I'd check is distributor & especially gear at end of shaft. If metal gear at bottom, you should be o.k.,but if nylon,could have melted.heated & distorted or broke. Be sure to mark it for re-install & don't crank engine before re-install.

My jag xj sport v8 3.2 will not start

give the battery a full charge....un clip the air filter housing and leave it resting in place, put your foot to the floor on the gas pedal and keep cranking til it starts up,dont release the ignition key til it fires up,it will pop and bang and then when it fires up will smoke for a little bit (couple of mins) and then it will be fine.
If that doesnt work you will have to remove all 8 plugs,clean them,pour about 2 teaspoons in each cylinder before replacing plugs then do the same as above.
What happens with these engines is the cylinders get a bit too much fuel in them and it washes the oil away down the bores thus losing comression so it wont start.Instead of starting it up and switching it off briefly,let it run a bit and then give it a little rev before switching off...hope this helps
