Having problem with how to make sure coil is hooked up correct how many wires go to posts is there a way to be sure you have the right post hooked to the right wire/wires can't get a spark very week to plugs had a new coil and points hooked up engine took off and ran well the next day it missed out and would stall out don't know what happened checked btdc and rotor position to number one cylinder but engine just turns over no fire up
If it started and ran from how you had the new coil installed that's not your problem.These things could be whats stopping the car from cranking.Mind you not being able to see and hear for myself if it's turning over extremely ... 1984 Volvo 240 Series
The left blinker acts as if one of the light bulbs is burned out(blinks twice as fast as the right). Replaced bulb and the same thing still happens.But when you hit a bump sometimes the blinker will act normal,than go back acting as if the bulb was burned out after a couple of uses.I have checked to make sure that the connection between the housing the bulb sits in is good and checked for any cuts in the wires going to the bulb.Why is it doing this?
Sounds like a bad connection in the socket ... 2003 Mazda Mazda6
I have a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire and the turn signal works but only for a few seconds and then the light just stays on. It happens on both the left and right turn signal and I have checked the headlamps to make sure no bulbs are burned out. I think it may be a fuse but I am not sure which one it would be. Can you help?
Can't be a fuse,if they work. Can't be a bulb if you see them on. Try the flasher or relay ... 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
My 95 318is (m42 engine) wont crank, the check engine light does not come on when you turn the key to the on position (right before you go to crank it). It wont even make the starter click or anything. I was working on my sound sysrtm before this happened so im sure i blew something. I checked fuses and my dad said it might be the ecu. But if you have any suggestions please send let me know! caco_mm13 (at) yahoo DOT com THANKS A MILLION

I have a 2005 Honda Accord. When driving on the highway it pulls slightly to the left. I have to put pressure on my steering wheel to turn right a little to keep it from starting to turn left. it is a minimal, but it happens. I checked pressure in both tires to make sure it was equal etc but that is not it. Perhaps my wife might have hit something and bend something, and never told me this or .....who knows?? It really sucks when a car cannot just go straight without input from a driver to keep

When I go over bumps or am turning I hear a clunking noise on my front right side. It seems to slowly get worse. It seems like it happens whenever the weight of the car is transferred. If I make a turn really slow and soft I can make it not happen. I checked my axles and they seem intact. My struts seem to be OK, I can push down on my hood and only get 1 bounce. This noise occurs more loudly when curving to the left and then to the right. Weight transfer of some sort. Any Ideas or suggestions?
I had the same clunking issue. People who want to make money off you will tell you anything. First thing to check is the caliper bushing. Easy to do. Take off the tire and grab the caliper, if the caliper rocks easily by hand, then that is the proble ... Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 93 Mustang LX Convertible and when I try to put the top down (both latches are unlatched) I hear a clicking sound coming from the rear of my car (I'm assuming it's the motor making the sound.) and then nothing happens. I've tried the switch in both directions with the same result. So far, I've checked the motor to make sure that it's in place and that all the connections are made from it. I haven't checked the fuses yet because there is power going to the motor, so it shouldn't be a fus

My key is stuck in my ignition. It has happened twice before and come out a week later, now it has been a month and I have tried to make sure it was in park, nothing happens. I do not know what to do.

Have replaced TPS twice. Take it apart put it back to gether runs fine for a will then later sputters and jerks. I think it may be a wire problem. But right now the engine wont start. when it does run will run well for a while then sputters again. the gas has to be in just the right spot for it to increase speed. or will sputter and not run well. Could it be the ignition coil. Not sure if it is a spark or fuel problem. Not a mechanical with gages and toold to check.

Radiator cap/problems We have a 2002 Volvo S60 2.4T We have a leak in the radiator some where, problem is, we don't know where. I tried looking under the car to find the puddle, but I didn't find one. Also checked the oil to make sure that coolant wasn't somehow making it into the oil. When I finally went and got some stop leak to try and temporarily fix the issue (we're having to fill the radiator every day, some times twice a day now) and looked for the radiator cap, it didn't seem to exist.

Have a 2001 Honda Civic LX. Just had a radiator flush at Pep Boys. My water level is high. No coolant leak. My engine is NOT steaming. Every now and then [please note this does not happen ALL the time] [[after]] I have driven for about an hour or so, the temperature gauge will all of a sudden shoot up all the way to the red mark. I'll turn off the car for about 5 minutes, check under the hood to make sure there is no water leaking or hot steam, as well as check the radiator water level.
There are only a few things that will cause this problem, one is a slight leak at the head gasket of the engine, combustion gases leak into the cooling system and create a gas bubble around the engine thermostat (this controls the flo ... 1998 Honda Civic
