Is it this much easy to gather some info about vehicle repair? Well, I agree. Discussion is the best way to collect info on a certain topic. I really feel pleasure to join this group. I prefer my care center to update me with latest info regarding vehicles.  http://dellsservicecenter.com/ 

A mechanic can explain well the issues related and their symptoms and repair techniques. Also we need to know which the DIY works are and which need specialist. Good discussion.

Knowing much about vehicle repair is common to many. Well, it would be a great and interesting discussion. I too would like to learn little. Though I’m having little knowledge on it, but I would like to learn more. It would be one of the most popular discussions. I would like to share here something on the present topic. http://www.germanautowerks.com/car-care-tips.php

I know an engine needs to be maintained, but I pretty much have to outsource what I need done, because I live in an apartment complex that forbids working on cars in the parking lot.  It's still something I'd like to know how to do.

Wow, glad it was an easy and quick fix. Checking the connections is always a great first step. Good job and glad I could help.

Also thanks for that link. It just helped with the brake light on the dash I was going to tackle next. Thanks again

I found the problem. It was the alternator wire that goes to the positive battery terminal. I guess the person that had it before me had put a jumper wire on it and just twisted it together and I guess thought it would be ok lol
Thanks for the advice though. I really appreciate it jared.

So, have you had your battery and alternator checked? It sounds as if you might have a dead battery that your alternator might not be charging.

I love listening to Car Talk on NPR. The Tappet Bros. crack me up.

hey guys I have a problem that I could use some help with. I'm working on a 1989 s10 blazer that has a 4.3tbi in it and it wont start. The only way I can get it to start is by running a jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to the positive bolts up on the firewall. It also has problems at idle when it does run. Any pointers or things I should check would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More
