Yes you sure do
i can walk you threw it.
DO NOT remove your dist. untill you have the replacement in your hand.
with the cap on draw a line for the #1 plug wire to the intake mainfold so you will know where to align it.
now you will pull the dist cap and see where the rotor is pointing the new rotor has to be pointing in the exact location. then you put your cap on inthe the same location do not mix it up . do not turn the engine over with the dist out. let me know when you get that far

Procomp distributer does not fit over oil pump shaft


Have to ask where you bought the distributor, if that
is not a stock drive on the end for the pump

May need to turn the oil pump a little, so it drops, down

That happens about 3 out 4 times you stab a dist in place

How to install 95 astro/safri v6 distribtor


You have to take the access panel off inside the van. There used to be two screws on the outside under the hood and the two clips inside that have to be released. Mine was older so I don't know if they are the same. Find the wire that is going to #1 spark plug. The is the spark plug at the very front of the drivers side. Mark the wire and its relationship to the cap someway. Mark all the other wires in the cap so you know their location when you put the new distributer in. Or leave them in the cap if you are going to use the same cap. Take the cap off and turn the engine over so the rotor is pointing directly to the #1 wire. It may not hurt to make some other point of reference, where the rotor is pointing to. Loosen up the bolt at the base of the distributer, blow all dirt away and turn and pull up slightly on distributer. Do not crank engine at any point during this time until the new distributer is in. Once you have it loose take the bolt out or at least slide the clamp all the way out of the way, Remove the distributer. Remove the base gasket for the distributer and clean the surface and put a new gasket on. Put the new distributer in paying close attention to where the rotor has to line up. The point of reference I told you to make earlier. You need to turn the rotor slightly CCW from the reference point as it will turn CW a little when it is mated into the cam gear and seating to the motor. If the distributer will not go in where you need it, it may be possible that the oil pump drive has moved a little. You may need to get a long screwdriver and go into the distributer hole and turn is slightly. After you get the distributer in, you should be able to put the cap back on. Or put all wires back on to the same positions that I told you to mark earlier. If you followed this closely then the engine should start. It should probably be timed. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Just bought a 95 z 28 its all ready had k&n cold air intake, phantom air to fuel ratio, and vacuum gauges and a port to plug a lap top into so i was told, the air to fuel ratio gauge is showin its...


Cheap air/fuel gauges simply tap off the stock oxygen sensor. That sensor can only tell you lean or rich and the car should idle roughly at 14.7:1 and go rich under acceleration. Cruise down the highway at steady 50 mph and see what the gauge does. Should be calmer.
At idle the needle can bounce around quite a bit. Means nothing. It should however go sometimes rich and sometimes lean. That's how the computer adjusts, if it stays lean too long, the computer tweaks the injectors richer. If it stays rich too long, the computer tweaks it leaner. If the computer cannot adjust the ratio, it will set the check engine light and in that case it should be a flashing check engine (meaning stop the car and tow it to a shop - flash means the catalytic converter can burn out).
If you want to know the actual air-fuel ration you need to buy a wide/band oxygen sensor and related gauge. They are much more expensive and will typically run a few hundred dollars. If the car is stock except for K&N, don't bother with the air/fuel gauge.
As for computer hookup. Go read up about "LT1Edit". Don't buy the software (too expensive for a stock car) but you'll understand what software is out there to monitor your engine (and what hardware you need to buy in order for your laptop to talk to your car).

I did a head gasket repair and now i need to set timing for a 350 chevy i can get it running but idles ruff


its hard to say without knowing your year, however, if you have an engine that uses a distributer, the best way is to remove your timing cover, and insure the timing mark are alighned and that your distributer is set to the #1 cylinder tdc, from there it should be a mater of small adjustments to the distributer. hope i was able to help.

I am changing my head unit and i dont know what color wires go to what on the stock one


The auto and radio Dons have blessed us with a universal color code for all vehicles-that I've noted in all the systems that I've changed. If you're swapping out the stock Chrysler system you'll need to go to Walmart-or a store that sells audio equipment-to buy the Dodge/chrysler/jeep adapter. You connect it to the factory connect and splice the same colors to the radio. Most times the wire have the speaker it goes to written on it. If you have already cut the connector off and can't reconnect the wires, just match up the wires with the matching colors. Hope this helps.

Check Engine


The light went out the second day, I’m taking it into the dealer for service mon dec 8, 2008, I did see the brake and radiator fluid to be low, (must remember to buy some at the dealer to keep in my garage) also I have seen small spots on the garage floor on the passenger side forward, I will also have it checked out at the same time. (Who knows! to be continued)

FANS DON`T TURN OFF


Relays are located in either the Power distribution box (by the battery) or the junction box under the dash. If that is not your solution I would try the Body Control Box which is under the fuse box under the dash. I just went through a similar problem, check out 1999 dodge caravan with headlights out and park lights on all the time. I replaced this body control box($350 at the dealer) and it took care of my problem. everything works now. Buy it from a wrecking yard it's a lot cheaper. however you will probably have to pull it out yourself.
