How to cold start a 225 Dodge slant six with a 1 barrel carb?

August 15th, 2011 · No Comments

My tow truck driver managed to get it to start by holding some part of the carb open while it was started but I am unable to duplicate this.
- Hold the throttle wide open and open the choke flap on top of the carb. The easiest way to do this alone would be to remove the air cleaner, open the little flappy thing on top of the carb. Place a large screwdriver or tool into the orifice to (more…)

August 11th, 2011 · No Comments

How to change a belt tensioner on 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan?

August 11th, 2011 · No Comments

Every time I drive in the rain, my S-belt keeps on slipping out. I always have to put it back on, so I got a new S-belt and it still slips out whenever I drive in the rain. Does that mean that I have to change the belt tensioner and is it easy to do for a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan?

1990 Dodge ram van is low in ATF, will that keep it from even cranking?

August 11th, 2011 · No Comments

I have a Dodge Ram cargo van, V-6 engine, 1/2 ton. If the ATF is low (from perhaps not having filled it enough after replacing the neutral safety switch(?)) would that keep the engine from cranking or starting? If this isn’t possible, I’ll try the starter next.
- If it’s “low” I’ll say no. Totally evaportated, maybe yes, but remember this is transmission fluid for shifting. You’re not doing that when starting. Driving might be another problem. But no, low ATF is down on the list for things to check for when trying to figure out why a car won’t start.

- you can just replace the airbag you do not have to replace the whole steering wheel. and i suggest that you have a professional do this as it can be dangerous working with air bags.

1999 Dodge Neon is heating up. I have replaced water pump and radiator

August 10th, 2011 · No Comments

I have a 1999 Dodge Neon. It has been running hot for about 6 months now. For awhile, it was leaking really bad. I have replaced the water pump, themostat, radiator cap and the radiator. Since the repairs, it was running OK, but little by little I noticed the needle climbing as each day goes by. As long as the car is moving, the temperature reads OK, but when idle (even without A/C running) the temperature needle begins to climb towards the “H”. I wonder what else could be causing the temperature to rise.
