My 96 Chevy Cavalier wont start..Cut off on me on the road one day while driving. Previously had a misfire though. I noticed that one of spark plugs wasn't sparking so I changed all the plugs and wires. Then I checked the fuses that were for the fuel pump and one was broke so i got a new one. Then I had broken fuel injectors and changed all of those with new O-rings. Then I sprayed starter fluid into my air-intake and it still wont fire up. I plugged screwdriver in the wire and tried to start ca

My girl friends 2002 Galiant was running bad (skipping, shaking) so we had our mechanic to look at it and he said that it was running off only 2 cyl. He took out one of the spark plugs and this black plastic substance was half burned around it. So he changed the wires and tried to put the spark plug back in but he was having problems getting it in. He said that the thread was stripped. He had a tool to re-thread it and it went in. The next day car started running bad again and now the spark plug

Hi, I have a 96 windstar. One of the wires on the brake light switch down at the brake pedal has broke at the plug and then when I went to repair it touched the steering bar and sparks flew. Once I repaired the wire I still had no brake lights and couldnt shift out of park. I then checked all the fuses and changed two blown ones, I dont know what they were because the cover is missing and none of the fuses are marked. But still same problem. I then checked the power to switch and there is none.

Nissan Maxima 1990 GXE has problems: The motor vibrates and does not steady. Therefore, when removing the cables of the distributor from the spark plugs one by one, the motor much vibrates except one plug, although there are sparks in all cables. I found one injector was malfunctioned, so I replaced all plugs along with all fuel injectors with new others, each one of resistance about 14 ohms. Then, when I turned on the motor, it was vibrating more than the first case and two plugs did not operat

My 1994 Nissan Altima started shaking really bad. I gave it a basic tune up. I replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor and gave it an oil change. I left the car running and checked to see if there was a misfire.
