Grand Ams are notorious for having weak window regulators. This sounds like another case of just that problem. The only real solution we have found is to buy and install new or rebuilt regulators, at a cost of between 80 and 150 dollars each. You might get lucky with a used or junkyard regulator, but it won't be long until they give out also.

2004 Pontiac grand am drivers side wiper not moving but passenger side is. bolt is tightened. when I turn on the pivot does not move.

One of two things . The wiper arm is not tight on the crank pivot , allowing the crank to move but not the wiper arm. Or the linkage from the wiper motor to the crank pivot has become disconnected .

1999 Ford Expedition 5.4L Timing chain setup. timing is off, need help realigning the cam sprokets. what are the correct angles

When they are lined the notch on the crank pully Will be a little befor the six o'clock position. The mark on the passenger side cam gear will be about the 11 o'clock position. The mark on the drivers side cam will be a little after the 12 o'clock position. The trimming chain will have three copper colored links. One by itself and two right next to each other. The single link will line up with the notch on the crank gear. The mark on the cam gear will line up in between the two copper colored links that are next to each other. If you have any questions let me know. Thank you for using!

What is the posistion for the timing chain for a 1998 acura tl

Curtis: The Acura TL had two different engines in it. Neither used timing chains.
Settings for the timing belts are as follows: this is on the 2.5 liter.
Before you pull it apart, break the front crank pulley bolt loose.
Line up the white mark on the pulley with the pointer on lower cover.
Berfore you pull the crank pulley, break the cam bolt loose.
Recheck the crank pulley marks with pointer. Remove the obvious to gain access to the timing covers.
NOTE, if you look at the cam gear will have the word "up" should be on the up side. There should be notches cut on opposite sides of the gear which should line up perfectly with the timing cover... You should have a timing belt tensioner still in place before, when you do your initial check.
After you remove the crank pulley and the timing cover, the woodruff key should be at 12:00 PM
You will also see if you look closer, at the gear. a punch mark, above the woodruff kny. There is an arroe cast into the block. This assures you that you have maintained alignment.

On the 3.2 V-6 same scenario. Remove all the **** surrounding your access to the timing covers and belt. After getting the front crank bolt loose, realign the timing marks to bring it to TDC (Woodruff key @ 12:00 PM) In changing the timing belt on this engine, remove the belt tensioner and you should be able to install the belt without removing the gears.
The right (passengers side) cam gear has a notch cut in the outside edge of the gear. There should be an alignment mark just behind it if you have it set fairly close.The drivers side should be the same.On both engines, make sure when you install the belt, the drivers side is ligned up perfectly and the belt is tight between the left side of the sprocket and the crank gear. Run the belt over to the other cam, making sure the cam is still ligned up. the belt without the tensioner will be real sloppy. Get a small clamp you can place to hold the belt in place on the right cam until you have the tensioner in place.
In checking on both of these engines, they are not intereference fit motors, in short, they are not prone to bending valves. Good luck.

Daughter was driving on the highway, car lost power then engine stopped, will crank over, but will not start, engine sounds as if it is cranking easier than before, timing belt is good, any suggestions?

Neons have a bad habit of blowing the cam sensor. Located on the back of the engine.( drivers side) Square looking mounted on the head. Have the codes checked, this will point you in the right direction.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo TSI, Passenger side windows do not work from master switch on drivers door. Both driver side windows work from master switch on drivers side. Passenger side windows do work...

It has to be the switch or the wiring, right? So pull out the switch and probe the back with a volt meter to see if power is coming out of the switch. If yes, trace the wires to the doors.

Truck is stalling when driving the try to crank it back up it roll overs several times then it will crank and die a couple of times then crank up it also backfires when it dies sometimes

The problem you are having is the same issie everyone else is having with this vehicle including me. When the truck is running I can replicate the symptoms by jiggling the wires going to the PCM located between the passenger side fender and air breather. So I have isolated this issue to that. The problem was not a loose connection like I suspected ealier but a problem with the PCM. You can either buy another or keep tapping it until tapping doesn't work for you anymore because all the circuitry inside the PCM is packed in with a gel.

I assume that the drivers side is working perfectly and only the passanger side has a shorteded erattic sweep . It will be either a loose locking nut on the wiper arm (on spindle) or unusually a faulty crank arm (weld) on the underside of the wiper spindle . Good luck
