    2013 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4, 4 Wheel Drive not engaging.

    Just had front lower ball joints and tirod ends replaced about a week ago. Went out this evening to a fishing spot and 4 wheel high would not engage. Just a bad spinning/grinding sound from the front, put it back in 2 wd and headed home. About a mile down the road it started making the sound...

    92 Aerostar/ Airbag light flashing

    It is flashing a code 34 from what I can tell. Is this for the airbag only? Do you have an idea what the code is?

    94 Lumina 3.1 ( Misfire)

    Have a 94 Lumina 3.1 with a miss when accelerating or going up a hill. It is a severe miss and will not accelerate will it's going on. On level ground or when there is not a load against the motor it runs fine. I put plugs and wires on the car about 2 or 3 years ago. Any help would be great, Thanks

    01 Crown Victoria/ Noise from front of vehicle

    Not at idle or not moving. Can hear when driving around town at or below 30-35mph. Sounds like a squeek coming from somewhere outside up front, could it possibly be from the tenison pulley for the belt?? I have no idea where for sure it is coming from or what to look for. Help please..

    94 Lumina 3.1 liter (Surging)

    When at idle or low speed the rpm surges to the point of dying when at idle speed. I have had the battery out before and this did not happen, I recently had the battery out and have been told that the computer lost it's memory and will have to be reprogrammed. Is this true and if so why? ???

    Battery checks good/Won't start

    You are correct GUS. I never tried turning the engine over correctly. I don't claim to be a mechanic, just trying to save a little money that I don't have. Thanks again.

    Battery checks good/Won't start

    :-[ :-[ Problem Found... The A/C compressor was locked up solid and would not allow the motor to turn over. I took back the new starter and got the original starter and put it back on the car and it did the same thing. I then removed the belt and when the key was turn the motor started. The...

    Battery checks good/Won't start

    The gear on the starter spins up and slams against the flywheel when the key is engaged, it will not engage the teeth on the flywheel it just slams against them. The # on the starter has been cross referenced against the AC Delco # and seems to be correct. This is also the second starter I have...

    Battery checks good/Won't start

    Teeth on the flywheel are perfect. Comparing to the old starter everything looks the same and the old starter had no shims when I removed it. I always thought adding or removing shims was to remove the high pitched sound when the spacing was wrong. I never heard of having to add shims just to...
