    2002 Honda Civic Electrical gremlin

    field wire grounding out.....seen it before. It causes hell in the electrical system. Check the wires going to and from the alternator. Possibly you may have a wire that broke inside the insulation but the insulation is still intact. Feel the wires and look for a spot it bends more easily than...

    What is the wierdest tool you ever fabricated under duress??

    I took a dinner fork and made a tool for cleaning out the impeller seal and shaft on a huge chopper pump for pumping out the manure lagoons on dairys to the sprinkler carts and gun to distribute cow manure to the field for fertilizing. I put 2 good bends in it and the company that made the pump...

    E4OD pan bolts

    M Hamilton I would check the wiring harness and connectors while you are under that thing if the pan is that beat up. Sounds like a little 4x4ing might have beat it up? The E4OD is electronically controlled and good connections are vital to the life of this transmission. 4x4ing or anything...

    CV boot repair

    believe it or not, I have used rubber cement (after an extremely good cleaning) and a chunk of heavy heavy duty silage wrap plastic or silage tube plastic. I wrap it around the whole boot in a strip where the hole is and sometimes use 2 or three stacked.

    97 Isuzu Rodeo overheating problems possibly a blown headgasket?????

    my experience with these have been that rodeos have weak heads and weak head gaskets...and driving it while overheating til it shit off would pretty much tell me you are going to need a new head, head gasket, or both. Try what Billr recommended, but I think you are beating a dead horse here...

    O.T.C Leak tamer plus oil?

    well, IMHO, I'm a big fan of OEM stuff because they made the equipment-they should best understand what it needs to operate the best for the longest period of time possible. Their name and reputation rely on a good working, well built piece of equipment. I wouldn't use anything but what they...

    Questions about timing belt replacement: 97 Corolla DX, 1.8l

    could be a tension bearing... hit it with a short blast of pblaster or wd40 in the very center of the pulley WITH THE ENGINE OFF AND NOT RUNNING using care not to get it on the belt or the running surface of the pulley. Some of the tensioners have sealed bearings and this won't work but it won't...

    I'm stumped - '93 Ford E350 lurching under load (Motorhome)

    do you have the infamous E4OD automatic transmission??? My guess is yes. They are notorious.... You said you changed the fluid in it not long ago? Did you have this problem before you changed it?? Oh, and by the way, ALWAYS pull the hills with the overdrive OFF!!! Never pull hills in overdrive...

    Quad/ATV Very hard 2 Start

    sounds like a stuck float. IF AND ONLY IF, you know much about carbs, pull the float bowl off and see if there is a bit of gunk preventing the needle from killing the gas supply or if the float evens floats. Depends on what the float is made of but sometimes they can get a pin hole in it or get...
