Question about Pontiac Parisienne

1 Answer

I have twenty inch Dayton wire with spinner knock offs and I am having problems getting them off. I have a mallet but the spinner won't move at all. I have tried with lubricants and with the car on the ground and jacked up. I would like to know what I am doing or not doing correctly.

Your doing it the correct way. unfortunately the knock offs are seized and is why they are not coming off easily. When this type of rim is installed on a vehicle, anti-seize MUST be applied to the threads to prevent this current issue from happening. Your only option is to use the hammer, and hit it clockwise and then counter clockwise until you break it loose. Otherwise, extreme measures will need to be taken such as high heat, with a small flame to soften the steel, allowing the knock off to come loose.

Taking spindle nut off 01 escort


You mean the big axle nut? You need a stout 1/2 inch breaker bar and the proper sized deep well socket on the nut. Loosen the nut while the car is still on the ground, you may even need a cheater bar on the breaker bar-the axle nuts are torqued down mighty tight-about 200 foot pounds. Once you break it loose, then raise the car on jackstands, remove the nut and washer, and push the axle back from the spindle. If the axle shaft is stubborn and won't move yet, put a piece of wood on the end of the shaft and rap it pretty hard with a mallet or hammer.to break it free from its tight fit inside the spindle or knuckle.

Cylinder head


There is a notch where you can get good leveage on the head at the front left. Otherwise knock it with a rubber mallet. They usually come off easy... how many head bolts do you have out? You might have forgot one, have another look. Cheers bro.

Knock sensor circuit


The code means there is a problem in the knock sensor circuit, that means the the knock sensor connector wire pins may have a problem, the wiring to the sensor may be damaged, or the PCM may have a problem, and of course the sensor itself, I have one question did you tighten the sensor to the proper inch pound setting of torque? if not this can cause a code to set because the sensor does not vibrate as designed to send a signal of a engine knock/ping.
