    97 rear brake problem

    If the squeek comes and goes as the wheel is turning slower and slower then the drum is out of round. The dumbest case is cheap new shoes, worse case you will need new drums, normal case is to have the drums turned. Sillyest case is you didnt adjust the shoes out far enough, start there.

    2000 Honda Passport 3.2 , poor idle in gear at stops

    On the little older models that I get to work on, when you monitor the IACV with a scanner while you put the tranny into gear, the computer tells the IACV to allow more air in as putting the tranny into gear adds an additional load to the engine and the idle needs to increase a little. I would...

    99 mitsubitshi eclipce

    If you can get a shop with a dual trace oscilloscope AND A PRESSURE TRANSDUCER to screw it into a spark plug hole and use the second trace to hook up to the same spark plug wire (externally grounded spark plug), if the dual trace picture is easily readable, I can show you how to tell if the belt...

    What is the best set of computer-based manuals for a shop?

    Wow, sorry I missed out on this thread. So for any future interests, I have a MOD 2005 DVD set available at a great deal for anyone checking archives. OF course this would be for shops that do not work on brand new still in warantee cars.

    spark testers

    I believe that device was built for other purposes but kind of works for cars so someone boxed it up as such. There is a tester (but expensive) that uses a similar light but it is built to use in series to the plug wire and it is very accurate but I would not use the one you have as it is too...

    Tires and nitrogen

    I didnt say anything at first because it had been too long since I actually used Nitrogen in tires or accumulator bottles but since this thread started I have been back to a job where Nitrogen is used daily. The pressure does change with ambient temperature in exactly the same type of case...

    89 Camry Wagon Automatic Shoulder Belt

    IF it appears that you have messed with it, that alone may void the warantee so take it in to get fixed first, it should be free, does the full warantee cover the entire system or just the belt itself.............

    starting problems

    A little extra juice in a new battery helps push the starter through its bad spots, I would have the starter tested on the car via an Oscilloscope AMP RAMP of the starter power wire during a cranking event while disabling the fuel, do not disable spark if you dont have to.

    engine surge in 1994 kia avella pls. help

    You say that it happens while accellerating, I would lean towards ignition spark, what type of ignition coil is on this engine. If the EGR valve was sticking open the car should have a poor idle and be fine while driving. You can disable the EGR as you suggested as a test, that is fine. If...

    1992 accord stalls out when in gear and stopped

    That sounds like a hose leak internal to the fuel tank or a bad fuel pump that is heating up when a portion of the pump is not submerged under fuel. You will need a fuel volume test with an expensive pressure and volume tester or an amp ramp of the fuel pump power source with an oscilloscope...

    95 Isuzu Trooper, crank, no start

    Everybody knows to check for fuel pressure, spark and compression. You did not mention a dry and then wet compression readings. After the big three you then need to know that spark inside the cylinder under good compression is much more difficult to make than spark outside of the cylinder...

    mazda 323

    Ignition Coil can only be properly tested with an oscilloscope and an amp clamp in your case since it is intermittent, a volt test and an ohm test is useless UNLESS you get an ohm reading while it is disconnected and cold, then drive it till its hot and dies, get an ohm reading while its...

    a/c heater

    If you have a test light or a volt meter, it is an easy system to test. Power is standing by everywhere looking for a ground to complete the circuit. Most Honda AC systems are ground side controlled. The first step is to test for power at the blower motor once you have verified all fuses...
