Question about OTC Hammering

Open Question

Have a ford ikon 1.6 Exi model there is a unique problem the car has just been repaired new spark plugs , coolant topped up cooling exhaust fan working perfectly. The car has poor acceleration and after heating up(15 minutes of running) there is absolute loss of power. During idle RPM is steady but as you press accelerator the response of RPM is consistent but after running for some time it seems the engine is starving and RPM beyond 3000RPM starts drooping to low levels if you remove feet from accelerator it comes back to idle problem but it can not move in gear

It may take as much as 60 PSI to overcome the fuel pressure regulator. No, you can't blow through it. I suspect you have a fuel starvation issue. It could be a clogged fuel filter. It may more likely be a pressure leak inside the tank. That pressure gauge you mentioned comes highly recommended at this point. There is a flexible line connecting the pump to the metal line in the tank. If it ruptures, you have only minimal pressure, and the vehicle starves for fuel. Using the gauge, turn the ignition on and off a couple of times, (do not start) If the filter is choked, you will still achieve pressure to overcome the regulator. If it never makes that much pressure, then it is the flex or the pump itself. My first experience with this I found the rupture after the third pump! Embarrassing!

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

SOURCE: misses during acceleration , rough

Go get the codes ran at auto zone or advance auto parts they will do it for free. If the codes come up as a cylinder miss-fire then it is most likely a coil (being a ford). Write down which cylinder it is. I wouldn't replace any of the spark plugs , useless you have more than 100,000 miles. If you have to replace the spark plugs use BOSH double plautim or better. The cylinder placing is ( as your are looking at the front of the truck) passenger side front to back 1-2-3-4 driving side front to back 5-6-7-8. If you never seen a coil buy one so you know what you are looking for. The coil is held in by a 7mm bolt. Take the bolt out and replace the coil. Problem Solved. Estimated time 20 Mins with 60 dollars per coil.

I have changed my thermostat and water pump on my 2000 impala but it still runs hot and water wants to blow out the top of radiator instead of circulating why

Coolant blowing out of the top of radiator , is this with the radiator cap on or off ? Do the cooling fans come on ? A coolant temperature switch activates the fan motors. This switch regulates voltage to the cooling fan relay. This switch operates the fan whenever the engine coolant temperature exceeds 110?°C (230?°F). For location and diagnosis, refer to Electrical Diagnosis. A transducer can also activate the circuit, depending on the A/C compressor head pressure going to the condenser.
The engine cooling fan relays provide the high current required for the cooling fan motors using a low current signal coming from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This signal is a function of various inputs.
Refer to Electrical Diagnosis for further information and diagnosis of the cooling fan relay.
The crossflow radiator uses a pressure-vent filler cap to allow a buildup of 103 kPa (15 psi) in the cooling system. The cap allows the system to operate at a higher than atmospheric pressure. This pressure raises the boiling point of the coolant to about 129?°C (265?°F) at sea level, which increases the cooling efficiency of the radiator.
If you are unfamiliar with these thing's , I suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

that sounds like a faulty coolant temp sensor, if it fails you will have to hold the gas to get it to start and the computer will not know when to turn the fan on.

Check to see if your electric fans turn on. Your fans are there to help cool the engine as well. Depending the setup will depend when they come on. Usually they are set turn on when your engine reaches a certain temperature to assist cooling the engine.

Ive ford ikon 1.8d car. The engine fan starts as soon as i switch on the battery and runs till i switch off the battery. also there are sparks near the switch in the hood when i start the engine.

you need a new fan switch for the engine fan.
with the engine off and the battery cables disconnected from the battery - replace the switch.
if the ( "sparks near the switch") is the fan switch check the wires when you replace the switch.
if these ("sparks near the switch ") are another switch check those wires for frays and tighten or repair.

4 cylinder firing order problem.for honda civic exi

There's a good chance that you placed the spark plug wires incorrectly. Looking under the hood towards the windshield, the cylinders are numbered from right to left 1, 2, 3, and 4. Looking at the distributor cap, the order is in a counter-clockwise rotation, starting from the plug closest to you, on the top, 3, 1, 2 and 4. Plug the corresponding cylinders in to the distributor cap, using the longest wire for the plug farthest from the distributor cap. I can send a diagram from the honda service manual if you need it. Just contact me.

Overheating, guage not over 1/2 mark, overflow smells like exhast

Have you tried running car from cold, with rad cap off, & heater turned on, coolant topped up, an inch or 2 from top of rad? Let it run up to operating temperature, cooling fans kick in & out 2 or 3 times, and top up coolant as needed, then put rad cap back on, & fill return bottle up to mark. There may be a worse problem, but bleeding system as I have described, ensures all air out of heater core & cooling system, which has been cause many times before on all makes & models of vehicles. Especially when no heat situation. Let me know if it helps.

2001 pt cruiser temperature is hot, fan does not come on


Sounds like you have head gasket problems.

2 ways to test this out are,

1. Pressure test the cooling system up to 15 lb sq in, with a cooling system tester pump,
( Available at any good car parts store )
Remove your spark plugs, wait about 1 hr, then get someone to spin over the engine, and monitor for coolant blowing from the plug holes.
This will confirm cylinder head, or the gasket is leaking.

2. Cooling system carbon monoxide test.
( Tester available from any good car parts store.)
The engine is run to normal temp, the tester is filled with fluid, and put in the header tank opening, and the suction ball squeezed, causing the gases in the header tank to pass through the fluid.
If there are any exhaust gases (carbon monoxide) present the fluid changes color, once again
confirming cylinder head, or the gasket has failed.

The reason you sometimes can´t start are the coolant leaking into the cylinder, shorts out your plugs, and the increase in your coolant temperature is due to loss of coolant into the bores, and over pressurizing of the cooling system, and blowing your coolant out the overflow as you drive.

Hope this has been helpful to you.

A FixYa Rating would be much appreciated Thank You !
