What is the difference between a ATC fuse and a ATM fuse ?
ATC fuses were created before ATM fuses. An ATC fuse will be larger than an ATM fuse in physical size. This is considered to be the regular size. An ATC fuse will be found in late-model electronic devices.
An ATM fuse is considered to be a mini fuse and it came out in the early 1990s. The only difference is it is smaller than an ATC fuse in actual size. It generally cannot be used in a fuse block that is made for an ATC fuse, as it will not fit in properly.
I have a 2007 100 series landcruiser, the engine
Misfire codes can be caused by alot of things ;bad ring in engine. bad ignition coil .bad sparkplug . bad sparkplug wires. bad map sensor (if equipt). to get a better idea you of your situation,you might want to post the make ,model ,year and mileage of vehicle and also the check engine code light codes.
When I am stopped say
I'd first check the gas to see if you may have water in it. It may also be a simple as a tune up or new plugs/wires.
Right turn signals work but left signals don't work
Front right and rear right are on a different circuit than the left front an left rear. Locate the Flasher control module behind dash. With key in RUN position check for pulsing battery voltage on the Green/white wire coming out of the flasher control module electrical connector. If no battery voltage, check for battery voltage coming into the flasher from the turn signal switch on the white/red wire. Left turn input is on the white/black wire. If not battery voltage on white/red, but voltage on white/black when turning left, then the turn signal switch is bad
You may need to replace your motor in the door. I'm not sure, but I believe that is where the automatic stop position sensor is. You may be able to testing it, but a new motor on eBay is probably $10, maybe $15 may want to verify this before you buy the motor. It's been a while I worked on one of those
I have a 2002 Mazda
run the fault codes
put a couple of cans of quality injector cleaner in the tank as it is a possible dirty injector problem or low fuel pressure problem
Mazda camshaft alignment
No, you will have open valves when the timing marks are aligned. This will create spring pressure and will want to move the cams to a neutral position. This is why you need the retaining tool to hold the cams in the proper location while the belt is replaced.
Bucking on acceleration and sulfur smell
The smell of hydrogen sulphide used to be a side effect of catalysed engines before low-sulphur oils and fuels replaced the old-fashioned stuff.
The sulphur smell could be significant and mean either you have some dodgy fuel or maybe the engine is has too much fuel going through it and if it is misfiring there will be unburned fuel entering the cat.
Most acceleration misfires are caused by ignition faults so I suggest you begin your fault-finding by ensuring the plugs are good and the spark each receives is a powerful quality spark.
