Hi, my name is Phil. Drive roll off truck. Just had a recent rebuild motor. Just got switched to the W. Star, should be good to roll. The pump will not lift heavy rock bins, etc. The rams shake & shudder. As well, giving RPM doesn't make any difference. Need to pinpoint the problem.

Phil, hi,

Is the hydraulic system low on oil? Check that, and check the line that feeds the pump, see if it's collapsing and causing cavitation.

Where is the secondary air pump on a 2002 VW Passat 1.8t front wheel drive?

The secondary air pump is located on the passenger side frame rail. You can find it by locating the ribbed air tube that is connected to the air box and following it to the air pump.

Washer fluid will not pump on a 1989 Cadillac Brougham

The Brougham is the rear wheel drive version - so the washer pump is mounted on the wiper motor.
Depending on what is wrong with the pump, you could replace it or rebuild it.
A mechanic would make sure the wiper motor is getting power to the pump when you engage the switch.

No power to fuel pump, checked gages, fuses and fuel pump, seem to be ok, any suggestions??

If the fuse is good can you hear (and feel) the main fuel relay clicking when the ignition key is cycled on and off? There may be another relay that is the same on the board, if so swap it over temporarily. If relay is working, is there power at the connection to the pump. If not then the wiring is broken. If there is then the pump needs to be replaced

I recently installed a window regulator on my 2002 tahoe. It came with the motor.when I installed it the window would not roll down.i checked power going into the motor and I had it so the switch is...

Yes, if your test light showed current and a good ground, then the motor could be bad from wherever you got it. You can test the motor by putting current to it from the battery directly (without crossing any wires) while it is outside of the vehicle, or even connecting the leads to the terminals with the motor installed (be careful not to ground any wires accidentally) with small alligator clips and a long set of 14 gauge wire.

If you bypass the switch and it works, then you know that there is a problem with the switch logic, or the wiring to the motor.

Good luck on this.

Window wont roll up

Hi my name is Allen!

When the window falls down it is because the cable for the regulator and motor broke. The only fix is a new regulator/motor assembly from the dealership, or a good one from the junk yard if you can find one.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

Ticking noise

Hi julbgz,

If either the torque converter or the oil pump was defective, you'll have a problem with the drive.....It wont pull correctly and eventually, you'll lose the drive....It's more likely to be something else.... As you recently had the engine out for a rebuild, make sure there's nothing stuck where it shouldn't be.... You may even find that the noise is coming from somewhere else altogether....That sometimes happens with vehicles.... Let me know what you find out....
