It sounds like a valve adjustment is required There are many items that can make a 'ticking' noise that is tied to the RPM of the vehicle. Having the sound match RPM's certainly gives a clue that it is associated with the operation of the engine. Many times a valve adjustment is required. This is a component of a regular maintenance schedule for almost ...

Assuming the car actually cranks over. Before you throw more parts at your car you need to confirm spark and fuel. Is the check engine light on? Since you already replaced the ignition components you need to confirm spark when cranking. You can use an old spark plug and a lead wire to ground the electrode. If you depress the schrader valve on the fuel ...

Given that the fan works fine, just that cold air isn't blowing, there are two things that spring to mind. You're out of refrigerant Your compressor has gone bad Refrigerant leaks even if you have a sealed system. This is normal, don't freak out. You should get it refilled with refrigerant if this is the case. You can check this is the case by looking ...

Try this, put the key in and leave it in the run position for half an hour. This should learn the key to the anti theft system. You may also want to hook up a battery charger. If that fails a scan tool will be required.

It sounds like the RF receiver of the central locking system is faulty. It was not the problem with the Car Battery or the remote battery. Take it to the service station and get it repaired.

Turns out the problem was the key security system. Apparently the switched voltage reset the key security, which caused my key to not be recognized by the car. After getting the security reprogrammed to accept my key, the car works as usual.

Thanks for all the time and input guys! Sorry, I only just realized I hadn't posted the solution. The pump he purchased (which did not directly interface with the electrical harness on the truck) came with a harness to splice into the trucks electrical lines (which it turns out we had done correctly), and another intermediary harness to be used between ...

According to this article (and my knowledge, lol) the stock rocker arm ratio of most stock small block Chevy's is 1.5:1. Polylocks should work just fine. Whether you need the guide plates is completely up to what type of roller-rockers you get. If they are non-self aligning (NSA), you'll need the guide plates. If they are self aligning, you won't. My ...

How much should I use? As much as you need to get it back up to operating level if you plan on driving it any more. If you don't get it up to the proper level, you'll be burning your soft parts up (clutches/bands) and risking the more expensive hard parts (planetaries, sun shell, sprag). Would the take care of the problem or am I looking at a more ...

Was the engine running before you disassembled it, yes or no? Most of 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4 16 valve small engines ARE interference. If after you assembled it and you missed on the timing and cranked the engine with just one of the camshafts out of timing you ruined the head. Do a compression test. You can rent or borrow the tool.

You need to jump start your car. Pop the hood. You'll see something like this: Inside the green circle is the positive jump point. Connect the red jumper cable clamp there first. Find an unpainted ground spot and attach your negative clamp there. Once connected to the donor car, you'll have power to do what you need ... either start the car, or pop the ...

You say the chain jumped timing. Was the car running when you disassembled it? Or did you have a tow truck bring it in? If you were stranded you may have damaged cylinder head valves. Do a compression test.
