it is a 2005 sienna that slips between second and third, what will it take to repair?
We got 22″ of rain in Corsicana Tx this past Friday. I was creeping along through puddles and my car died. It started back up but died again. Hasn’t started since.
I went to oreillys, bought a dry air filter, set of plugs, and a can of PB Blaster.
Removed cap and rotor and flooded the distributor with PB, reinstalled cap and rotor. I pulled the plugs and cranked the engine over for a few seconds at least, to blow out any water that was present, and replaced the plugs with properly gapped(.044) copper core NGKs. Car not firing at all, even with a small either shot.
I brought the car home on a dolly today, and swapped the entire distributor, cap, rotor, and wires from a parts car that I just purchased a couple weeks ago. I know the components are all in good order because the parts car runs. The parts car has a knock but everything worked on it.
I’m at my wits end at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And no, the rotor was not 180 degrees out when I replaced the distributor.
Thanks for any and all input.
I had my clutch replaced about 2 yrs. Ago as it was slipping. Well, it is slipping again and I’m thinking that the repair should have lasted longer than 2yrs. and I want to confront the mechanic who did the job. Am I right, or could I be doing something to cause this? I’ve only had the car 5 yrs.The car is a 5 speed and I have driven a standard for 30 yrs.!
I would like to know how this ECU operates
Can the vehicle ABS expire? If yes how do you repair or replace?
On a 3.0 liter engine, I mis-routed the knock sensor plug to the passenger side. (under intake manifold). After installing engine, I found that the knock sensor wire SHOULD have been routed to the drivers side. Hence, the wiring harness is about 7 inches short of plugging in. Must I remove the intake and re-route the wire, or can I simply cut and extend the wiring harness wire without worrying about causing a knock sensor malfunction?
