I bought an aftermarket piston for my 1992 Mercury Topaz XR5 3.0L V6, the original red dot piston seems impossible to find. the aftermarket piston is .021 shorter than the original piston when measured from the top of the wrist pin bore to the top of the piston. how much of a compression and or balance issue will it cause if I use this piston.


Do not use this piston. We are not taking about thousanths of an inch (which would be bad enough) but hundredths. This would drastically change your combustion chamber volume in one cylinder only. Also the spark ... 1992 Mercury Topaz

1987 Isuzu Trooper purchased in 2009 with "new" brakes. Right front caliper occasionally sticks and won't release. Replaced rubber brake lines. Can you use a C-clamp to push back piston or is this similar to the 1991 rear where the piston needs to be rotated back in? Any other suggestions? Also, the '91 rear brake pistons required lithium lube or similar high temp lube between piston & pad, any similar requirement on the front in 1987?


Yes you can use a c-clamp. If the caliper is sticking I would go get a new caliper. Otherwise you will be replacing pads and rotors on that side more than you should have to. ... 1987 Isuzu Trooper

Ref ture 889 Siezed engine Jag 1988 XJSC V12 aut. Red your recommendation , but if it is rust in cylinders which caused the seizing? How to check if it is siezed pistons or siezed crank ? My own idea is that if siezed crank it would be dead siezed, but if siezed pistons there might be some play in crank bearings which would be possible to detect over the valve train. If siezed pistons due to rust in cylinders would it be possible to use some kind of rust remover to loosen the pistons. I will

The trunk in my stratus 2003 uses a kind of piston to hold it in place, but the pistons have loosened too much and now the trunk suddenly goes down really fast and hits the latching system really hard.

I pulled the #1 spark plug and put my finger over it and had someone turn the motor over until the pressure moved my finger. I then used a socket and moved it the rest of the way by hand until the mark on the pulley was lined up with tho 0. I put a straw inside the #1 cylinder to make sure the piston was at TDC and the piston was not near the top. I had someone hold the straw and turned the motor by hand and got the piston to the top and was pushing the straw out but now the mark on the pulley i

Overheated motor I had replaced piston rings and piston bearings and had the head skimmed and valves seated after over heating but the problem is when the engine is cooled down, the radiator hoses sqeeze closed as if there is a vacuum in the radiator. The temperature is normal on short distance and the starting is no problem although I lose about 100 - 200ml of radiator water.The engine had no piston ridge so was not needed to rebore. could the block or head be cracked as this was not checked?

I am replacing rear disc pads on a 2004 Chevy Malibu. I slide the caliper off and now I want to push the piston back.

I'm replacing the head gasket on my friends 96 Saturn SL1 SOHC. I've heard 2 different stories about lining up the crankshaft with the camshaft in order to keep the valves from contacting the pistons. my mechanic friend says have 1 & 4 pistons TDC and the 1 & 4 valves closed and in that case the keyway for the crankshaft sproket is TDC. The Autozone online manual says to have the keyway at 90 past TDC which means the pistons are halfway in travel, but theres an error with that because Autozone s

Have installed new (rebuilt) calipers on '83 El Dorado. Parking brake doesn't work on passenger side. Had to use tool to press piston in far enough for installation on other side (driver) but this side had piston depressed enough to install without use of tool. Driver's works, passenger side does not. It is supposed to self adjusting but how long does that take? Do these need to be set up in some manner ( which I might have done unknowingly in depressing the other side ) ? Also if piston rotates
