  • i am dealing with a 1999 ford contour with a 2.0 liter engine.?

    I am about to replace the water pump but according to the info that i have, the 4 bolts that mount the pump to the block are torque to yields. I have them on order right now but that puts the project off for 2 weeks. in the duration of the research part, a friend called the dealer and several part stores and I get conflicting info on whether or not they are really that type. if I can reuse them with out potential of damage, that would be nice but if they are torque to yields, id just as soon replace replace them at that point. are they or are they not TTYs?

  • ok, 1994 mazda mpv, serious lack of power issue.?

    driving home from the airport, it started to act up. lacked any power, had it towed home and let it cool off a bit. trans is only a half a quart low, but that is not really the issue. i can hold the throttle open and the engine just bogs. does any one have any info on this beast. i need to know the compression pressure for one and any other info that you might have that might keep me from just blowing it up.

  • situation with a 1979 international harvester( 345 cid engine)?

    just got the truck running last month for the first time on, well since i have known the owner ( 9-10 years). now it has a miss ans what sounds like a rod knock. he replaced the connecting rod bearings and main bearings twice, plasi-guaged them in between to confirm tolerances. we have replaced plug wires to attempt to eliminate a miss that could be related, plugs are clean ( relatively given that the truck does not get warm enough to get out of that warm up phase) we have confirmed good compression in all 8 cylinders, less than 8 % variance from high to low. lowest was 170 psi and the highest was 185 if i remember right. i will be rebuilding a thermo-quad 4bbl carb the next time that i am over there. just what am i missing here?

  • emissions test on a 1991 Chevrolet pick up (4WD i think)?

    i have a co worker that is having a problem getting his car to pass smog. the original sheet passed every thing. his fort time through the test it had elevated co% on the low speed test but every thing else was on range to pass. on the high speed test every thing fell in line and passed that part of the test. he says that he did a tune up and went for a follow up test. this time the low speed test passed but the high speed test had elevated hydrocarbons but nothing else was out of range. i am trying to make sense of it but i am at a loss. if you need actual results i will continue with those on the next installation. i should mention that he stated that he adjusted timing to 2 degrees btdc before the second test but that is still within guide lines.

  • how about this one, it just makes my head hurt.?

    on a 83 ford bronco, a co worker was getting it ready for smog. was trying to get timing checked and adjusted to spec but the first guy that checked it said that it was off by 97 degrees! the owner of the truck came back to me and repeated this to me, i told him that if this were true, the engine would not run. the second shop that he went to adjusted timing to where it should be and now idle speed is low and the engine runs hot. what are your thoughts on this.

  • a friend' truck, it will not start. ?

    on a 1988 ford bronco II what would cause the injectors to fail to work at all. he has replaced a failed fuel pump. a ignition module and the plugs and wires, which i under stand are not directly related to the current issue. i believe that the cpu has failed, so it can no longer opperate the injectors do you have any other ideas. btw, he said that the cec was on but it is no longer.
