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

Hey guys I'm new to this group. I've been constantly doing repair on cars since i was able to pick up a wrench and get after it. I'm glad to see a group like this on AOM.
