Having problems with your 1993 Mazda 626 ?

Brake piston I was changing my brakes and I had to manually crank my piston in to be flush with the caliper. I couldn't get it in any farther so I tried to crank it to it's original position and now it's stuck there. I can crank it, but it will only move around a little. What can I do?

\015\012By "crank" do you mean "push" or "rotate"
\015\012
\015\012The rear pistons should be wound back in by using an allen key to turn the pinion at the back of the caliper. This pinion is accessed by removing a hex head plug (With its copper sealing washer.) which is about 10mm away from the hex head bolt holding the handbrake cable bracket to the caliper.

My key got stuck in the ignition. I was able to get the key out but the car will not crank. The steering column is NOT locked. That is the first thing I checked. I have moved the steering wheel to the right and left while trying to crank the car and it will not crank. The key will not go to the ACC position. Any suggestions? I have tried adding graphite to no avail.

Electric front seat stuck in forward position. It's a 2002 Camry. I moved the electric adjustment completely forward looking for an item and it would not return back to the original position. Both tilts work but not the back button.

Ever have a sensor go bad. The crank sensor is new, cam (on distributor) is not.

The timing belt pulley gets stuck when i try to crank it whats the cause of that? I had my brother look at it and he said that a piston could be broken is that true.

Ignition problem Hi I recently bought an 89 bronco to basically rebuild. My problem is when I put my key in the ignition it turns with no resisitance nor does it springs back its original location. It seems as if the ignition is stuck in the run position and won't turn off or turn the car over? Would this be a problem with the ignition cylinder because I already tried to buy a new switch and key and replace it and it made no difference. and if it is a problem with the ignition cylinder what woul

The key got stuck in the Acc position but the key will no longer turn. I have disconnected the battery and removed the outer casing and have access to the cylinder housing.
