when the car hasn't been on for a while, it takes forever to start. it cranks and cranks, until u give it gas, but still sputters in a way and then slowly goes to normal. someone told me its the fuel pump, but i don't know. i replaced the spark plugs, even tho the stock ones were that bad. the air filter was also replaced. if it is the fuel pump where is it located in the car? what could be causing this issue?
I recently bought a car from a friend who bought it from an old lady who drove it to church and the store once in a while.
So, the thing is in really good condition. 1987 Mercury Lynx (Old Ford Escort) only has 89,000 Miles on it. So, low miles.
I've been driving it for about two weeks now.. and i have seen it go a little funny.
Just today, it started to hiccup a little while driving.
So, (its a manual 4 speed).
i would start in first gear, and then second, and when i hit third..
I can have a shower on Monday and my pits will reek the next day.
Is there a medical reason behind this?
i am in my 20s
Car was running fine. Started to not start intermittently when she turned it off... It cranks but no spark. Then it died while driving down the road and would not start again. (Still Cranks). We took it to a shop. They replaced the ign coil packs and ignition module.... then they replaced the cam and crank sensors... then they replaced the computer... STILL WONT START... they finally said that they can't fix it... now she has a car that has basically been butchered and still it doesn't start. It seems like a dead short somewhere. Why can't they find it?
I am unable to control the air flow for my vents, feet or defrost positions. I can control the air temp and air speed with no problem. Every once in awhile I will hear the doors moving when I turn the dial on the controller. I also can hear a vaccum leak from under the dash when I step the throttle and when I roll out of the throttle. Is a vaccum line leaking or some type of actuator leaking causing the air duct doors to not function? If it is some type of vaccum leak I would assume I wil be taking the whole dashboard out to get at the problem right?
