Go to and buy permanant coil springs and replace the rear air bags, and NEVER worry about having a sagging vehicle again.

Power steering /how to bleed

The best way to bleed air from a power steering system is to use a vacuum pump and a cap (or plug) the fits the top of the reservoir. Pump the vacuum after filling to pull air from the system, when the vacuum is released it will pull fluid downward into the lines. Also when you first start the car run the steering system from side to side a couple of times then shut it off to allow the air bubbles to rise out of the fluid. This is done the easiest way by putting the vehicle on jack-stands to take the weight off of the front end.

Air conditioning doesn't work have had freon added and still no help. 1999 oldsmobile bravada

If your air conditioning isn't working, and you've had the fluid topped off, it usually points to a bad compressor. You'll have to buy a new one and replace your existing one. If you do go this route, contact me and I can try to guide you on how to do it.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! You can leave a testimonial or contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

My bravada slows to a down tofive miles an hour or less and backfies as if its not getting fuel or air I've almost been rareended its done this for the last two years . It also has aproblem now with the...

You could try replaceing the fuel filter its on the frame under the drivers side door. but it could be the fuel pump if its the orginal one its about time for it to go you get 10 to 12 years out of them. The fuel gage is also wired to the sending unit and that is in the pump to. There is also a problem with the wireing to the fuel pump its not resistor wire it should have been a recall but the new pumps come with new wireing that has to be spliced into the orginal harnest so you might check the wireing to the pump it runs on top of the tank if you can lower the tank 2 or 3 inches you can reach in and pull it out to test it good luck

I think the fuel pump is shot in a 2000 oldsmobile bravada the vehicle turns over and has good battery power however is acting like it is getting no fuel. how do I replace it. or is there something else...

I would start by spraying starting fluid in the air filter. If it starts then you will know for sure it is a fuel problem. A way you can check the fuel pump is take off the gas cap. Have someone listen where the cap was. Turn the key to the on position and the person listening should hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds. If it doesn't run it could be the fuel pump relay which is under the hood on the driver side. You can swap it for the one next to it temporarily. But 98% of the time it is the fuel pump. You have to drop the fuel tank. It is held up by 2 straps. And the fuel pump is in the top of the tank. You have to turn a retainer ring half a turn to get the pump out. Be sure to get the filter on the new one really good. It will ruin the new pump the first time you start the car. It will **** up dirt off of the bottom of the tank.

Hope this helps you! Please vote! Thanks!

I have a 91 300zx non turbo won't start

Are you sure the new belt didn't jump time? How was the belt tensioner when you replaced yhe belt? Did your water pump leak onto or into your crank sensor?Are you sure you have proper fuel pressure?When you replaced the timing belt, did you make sure to find top dead center on cylinder 1 ? Just lining up the timing marks may not have worked if this is indeed what you did.If you had the crankshaft rotated 180 degrees, your motor would be trying to fire on the exhaust stroke, instead of the compression stroke. To find T.D.C. disconnect your battery,rotate your crankshaft until the piston that is marked #1 in your firing order is at the top of its stroke, this can be accomplished by carefully inserting a wooden or plastic dowel into the sparkplug hole of cylinder#1. The dowel will rise with the piston and at the point where it starts to fall will be T.D.C. Now your timing marks should line up,and you will then be on the compression stroke. good luck! hope this helps

96 bravada replaced fuel still no start runs with starter fluid

If your getting gas and spark get an obd 2 scan tool and check your mass air flow sensor. I had the same problem. If your having a problem with this vehicle always check the computer first; it will save you tons of headaches later.
