    belt chirp,, 1997 ford E150 XLT club wagon 5.4 235K with rear A/C / heat

    Here is a concept for you to try to wrap your mind around. The compressor is the last load on the belt path, so when the compressor is engaged, the belt pushes harder against all the other pulleys (but not the tensioner pulley).

    Check pulleys for "belt contact area" as a indicator for possible belt alignment problem. If the compressor was replaced once before, there may be missing alignment dowels. Harmonic balancer "rubber sleeve" may be the root cause of your problem....got a wobble?

    No start when turning key. No crank. Intermittent problem

    Not sure, but I think the starter relay is "hardwired" to the IPDM. If so, cannot simply pull relay out of IPDM without destroying IPDM.

    Running rough at idle and worse when pressing gas and smells of gas

    Pretty common for old plug wires to get damaged during spark plug replacement, and cause a misfire shortly afterwards. You might want to first check that the wire is firmly attached to plug and coil, those rear plugs are hard to reach.

    2000 Toyota Tundra brake line

    If the difference is just "larger/smaller" it would probably still work. Using a drill bit to measure ID of both brake line and wheel cyl will give you an idea if there wil be a problem with matchup.

    Rear differential How do you disassemble?

    I can only see the pics provided, but I would consider putting an open end wrench over the shaft and then use a long punch through the ring gear hole (and hit the wrench "down low") to try to knock the "bearings" out.

    2013 Corolla cranks over but no start

    Mileage seems a little low for "first set of spark plugs", but I would replace them....easy and it doesn't cost much. Cleaning throttle body may also be beneficial. My take on "Don't touch the throttle, you will flood it."...that is only slightly true. More true to say "It's fuel injected, you...

    2013 Corolla cranks over but no start

    Did you start a cold engine, drive it just a few yards, and then shut it off until the next day? If the answer is "YES", I will explain how that scenerio may have caused your problem.

    2012 Kia Optima BCM issues.

    So apparently, your previous statement in reply #3 was untrue? Please explain. Glad you got "everything but the horn" working again. Did you install and program the new BCM?

    Hard start on 2004 Buick Park Ave

    How is your coolant level? Have you had to top it up? Sometimes the 3.8 manifold melts by the EGR inlet and coolant starts to leak into manifold airway, which fouls out the sparkplugs.
