My h3 had no oil! Knocking badly, Is it ruined?

What is the make and year of your H3. The damage will depend entirely on how long it has been used with no oil. Can you hand crank the engine two or more full rotations? If is has only been a very short amount of use the engine should be ok. It will only be badly damaged if it has been used dry for a long time.

What year is my Jeep Cherokee? No tripometer, 8 prong plug under dash on left side steering column.

You can get a general idea of the vehicle's age using the VIN number. The 10th digit is a code letter/number for the year of manufacture. Try this website for a list of the codes and a more detailed explanation of what the rest of the VIN means. https://www.holtsauto.com/holts/news/read-cars-vin-code/

Transmission compatibility?

The best thing to do is visit your local wrecking yard. They should tell you what can be switched and what problems you might run into.

My 2008 Kia Spectra won't start

Probably one of the main fuse blew. Start by removing foiled fuse. Use a 12 v light tester and check main fuses first. Might as well check all the fuses. Replace as needed.

KIA CARENS 2010 has 6 fuses that are not blown but are not receiving power.

KIATECHINFO.com is the site that oem mechanics use for all models of KIA. It is not free. It has all the electrical diagrams for the vehicles. You may also try ALLDATA but it is not free. One thing to look at in your issue is the ignition switch. See if power is coming out of it to the fuses

Can the problems associated with code P2127 on a 2010 Chevy Impala cause a/c not to kick on?

DTC P2127: Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor 2 Circuit Low Voltage This is right out of factory service repair manual , don't google stuff may not be accurate. If you look under the steering wheel at the gas pedal you will see connectors at the Accelerator Pedal . position sensors inside gas pedal . Circuit/System Description The throttle actuator control (TAC) system uses two accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors to monitor the accelerator pedal position. The APP sensors 1 and 2 are located within the pedal assembly. Each sensor has a 5-volt reference circuit, a low reference circuit, and a signal circuit. Two processors are also used to monitor the TAC system data. Both processors are located within the engine control module (ECM). Each signal circuit provides both processors with a signal voltage proportional to pedal movement. The processors share and monitor data to verify that the indicated APP calculation is correct. It's not see wide open throttle like other guy says . P2127 The ECM detects that APP sensor 2 voltage is less than 0.16 volt for greater than 0.5 second. Action Taken When the DTC Sets • DTCs P2120, P2122, P2123, P2125, P2127, P2128, and P2138 are Type A DTCs. • The ECM commands the TAC system to operate in Reduced Engine Power mode. Anytime the vehicle goes into reduced engine power mode A/C shuts off - cruise control won't work etc.. Just change the gas pedal assembly .
