How do you install a macintosh internal Superdrive CD-DVD in a macbook pro?

Assuming you are wanting to replace a faulty drive, turn the computer off and then flip it upside down. With a small eyeglasses phillips-head screwdriver, remove the 10 tiny scores on the bottom of the case. Be sure to arrange the screws in such a way that you replace the screws in the spots you took them out because they sometimes don't seat flush when you put them in difference holes.

Locate the super drive. Disconnect the SATA cable and power cable (they may be one harness or two separate plugs). Remove the screws that hold the drive in place. Install the new drive, replace screws and connect SATA and power.

Replace the case bottom and secure with the screws you removed earlier.

The whole project should take less than 15 minutes. You might want to consider upgrading your memory while you have the case apart. It's very simple, and the memory is pretty cheap these days.

Bought a 98 mustang and it was running rough and idled very poorly sometimes felt like it was gonna stall It lost power under stress and then started to lose it more frequently felt like it bogged down...

It sounds like you may have clogged cats or pre-cats. Is this a V6? The pre-cats can get super hot and basically melt the catalyst material. This isn't a permanent fix, but jack the car up and pound on exhaust pipes before and after the cat converters to possibly shake out some of the clogging. You may also want to put in a fresh set of spark plugs.

I think your old plug is probably 120 and you may need to convert to 220. It's probably the wiring is probably 220 in new home? Or maybe not grounded properly. This is a job for a professional. If you think you know what you doing, we try to save a few dollars by doing it ourselves. But sometimes it is time to call the experts, before we cause more damage and cost us more money. Good luck!

Will not start when hot

Could be the ignition coil or it also could be a plugged catalytic converter. The converter being plugged will show several different signs, 1>) a rotten egg smell when vehicle is off 2.) loss of power 3.) fuel mileage drop. The ignition coil could also be weak. not bad enough to overheat and shut it down but enough that when its hot and shut off that it wont allow for spark due to being hot.

My super bronco will run but occasionaly starts missing and dies (carb is brand new) I don't think it is getting spark consistantl;y.

it could have a bad coil when it dies check for spark it's not uncommon for a coil to die when it gets hot take a old spark plug and put it onto the plug wire and hold it against a bolt pull the engine over and look for spark

Could the catalytic converter be bad? Sometimes the car hesitates for a minute, almost like it looses power. Then, it's fine. It may do this a couple of times during an hour of driving. Will a bad...

a converter is either bad or good they dont vary. same thing with the air filter and spark plugs it would be a consistent problem either hot or cold.

Idles ok, stalls out at stops sometimes, and will not go faster than 20 -25 miles and hour sometimes it is now showing a hard start symptom. Fuel pump has been replaced showed 30 lbs on line

Check the engine coolant temp sensor and the intake air temp sensor for proper function. If either of these two sensors is stuck at full hot, the computer will see this and not schedule enough fuel for running at actual temperatures that are less than full hot. So most of the time you'll run super lean and have no power. Lean stalls and hard starting--especially when cold--are other symptoms of this problem.

The frnt section of my converter gets red hot and truck runs very ruff could this be the cause

that could be the problem the converter might be plugged, or it could be that you are running on a few less cylinders... if it is a gas engine make sure all the plug wires are in excellent shape and hooked to the spark plug. if it is a diesel im not to sure what to say... also what you could do is run a test pipe on your ford and see if this helps

2002 F150 Temp reads hot and loss of power. The truck is not running hot when temp gauge reads hot and when I shut off truck and restart the gauge goes to normal for about a mile then back to hot. It...

You could try another oil pressure sensor or test the oil pressure with a gauge at the sensor port. If you think about it, the truck goes into a failsafe mode when there is a problem. You could go into failsafe with high temperatures too. The water temp sensor could be bad but with the oil light coming on, the oil sensor should be your first choice.

You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys and it may show the problem. Sometimes it takes a better scan with dealership type diagnostics because the self-diagnostics on your truck is limited.

Failsafe mode would cause the power loss because the truck is designed to kill cylinders and to use the dead cylinders as hot exhaust pumps to cool the block.
