Sounds like the engine is siezed or is suffering from a liquid lock. Liquid lock occurs when one or more of the cylinders becomes filled with fluid. Air / fuel mixture can compress but liquid can not. Check the oil and coolant. If there is any water in the oil or oil in the water, then you most likely have a head problem. Could be simple as bad head gasket or could be cracked head. The only way to truly find out is disassemble the engine.

I have a 1984 Pontiac fierro GT and I was wondering how to unlock the motor that has been sitting for a couple of years now and also I need to know how much will it cost to do it myself??

There's a good chance the engine will have to be disassembled to get it "un-stuck". It really depends on what has seized.
You could take the belts off and try to turn the crank pulley with a wrench. You could also try pouring liquid wrench into the spark plug holes to soak the piston rings. If it is something on the crank or the camshaft the engine will have to come apart.

My camaro squeaks really loud whenever i turn the steering the wheel left or right whether I'm moving or sitting still. It sounds like it's coming from both sides of the front end.

tie rod ends dry? this kind of thing is easily found if one person moves the wheel and the other listens and/or feels the different front end components. loud squeaks are generally accompanied by vibration which is hard to miss if you get down close to it.

Need new clutchplate & pressure plate for manua

  1. Remove the Old Clutch
    • 1Verify that your vehicle's clutch is the source of your problems and not the pedal-arm bushings, activating cables or the slave-master cylinder.
    • 2Unhook the positive battery cable, the clutch cable or hydraulic slave cylinder to get the transaxle ready for easy removal. Eliminate anything that may hinder your efforts, including exhaust pipes and the speedometer.
    • 3
    • Secure your car in a safe position before jacking up the front end.
    • 4Stabilize the engine with a jack below the oil pan. Remove the transaxle by undoing at least one engine mount.
    • 5Separate the engine from the transaxle by removing the bolts that surround the flywheel bell housing.
    • 6Push the transaxle away from the engine until the input shift clears the pressure plate.
    • 7Disengage the bolts surrounding the pressure plate and take it and the clutch disc out. Check to see if the flywheel's friction surface is scored, checked or has hot spots. Remove, machine and reinstall the flywheel, if needed.
    • 8Examine the pilot bearing (bushing) located at the flywheel's center to be sure the needle bearings are lubricated and that there's no galling. Also look for any oil leaking around the rear main engine seal.
    Replace the Clutch
    • 9Follow the instructions for replacing your car's clutch carefully to avoid having to remove the transaxle.
    • 10Check that the transaxle's input shaft isn't leaking; replace if needed.
    • 11Take out the flywheel and the old seal and install a new seal.
    Install a New Clutch
    • 12Clean the crankshaft flange before putting in the flywheel. With the flywheel on top of the flange, secure the bolts in a star formation to the specified torque for your vehicle.
    • 13Install the clutch disc and pressure plate. Prior to putting in the transaxle, attach the new release bearing to the release fork. The fork should move freely.
    • 14Hoist the transaxle into position and move it forward until the input shaft glides into the clutch disc's spindled hole. Do not apply force.
    • 15Reinstall any bolts or mounts that were removed to replace your car's clutch. Grab the transaxle, release the jack and lower your vehicle.
    • 16Consider replacing your car's clutch cable. If you don't replace the cable at least adjust it for the right amount of free-play.
    • 17Confirm that your clutch's self-adjusting action is performing correctly by depressing the slave cylinder's piston into its bore.
    • 18Drive your car to be sure your clutch is working properly.

What is a flywheel on a 94 buick and what problems can it cause if a new one is needed?

The flywheel mounts on the end of the crankshaft and puts all the engine power to the transmission through the torque convertor which is bolted directly to it. If the flywheel is broken, the car isn't going to move very long or very far. It will be harder on gas and there is a good possibility that the engine could easily be over revved which creates a whole new set of expensive problems.

I realize it is a real pain to change but it's not something you can live without. Make sure that you get the proper torque settings for the flywheel to crank bolts. Overtightening has been known to create stress cracks in the flywheel and you get to do it again. Also make sure you don't lose the torque convertor bolts. They are a dealer only item and not cheap. They have an odd thread so they can't be replaced with anything else. Hope this helps.

Car problem

should be either to the left of steering colume under dash or to the right of colume under dash. Just start with one end of paper clip in the terminal to the right at the end and move the other end until the chk.engine light starts flashing, just make sure to turn key off each time you go to move the one end of paper clip and turn it back on each time to see if it flashes Now when light starts to flash you count how many times it flashes for example it will flash once than paus then flash twice quick witch is 12 and so on, or three fast paus and then two fast witch is 32 thats your codes.
