Hey Scotty, I have had a 1996 Ford Taurus GL for about 2 years now. I just replaced the fuel injectors, spark plugs and wires. It's a 3L V6 with 250,000 miles with a rebuilt transmission, I'm wondering if there are any problems I should look for in the future and how long the car should last if I maintain it and change tranny and engine oil etc. Thanks!
Hi Scotty, I recently got a 99 Mustang convertible with a 3.8 V6 with roughly 133,000 original miles. I was wondering what you would recommend for a tune up beside the obvious plugs wires and air filter. I’ve already changed those and the fuel filter.
Hi Scotty. Thanks for your videos. Very informative. I'm trying to save my 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass from sending it to the junk yard. It has a 3.1 v6 and it started having problems just cutting out on me while driving but it would restart. Local mechanic ran diagnostics which lead to changing out the ecm and prom, which I had to go to salvage to find. This seemed to work for about a month until it finally cut out one last time and would not restart. Mechanic ran diagnostics again and just plain gave up because he couldn't get any straight read. I figured I should at least try to change the crank sensor since once I found how to get to it, it would be cheap way to rule it out. Trouble is the part listed on all sites online and all the local parts shops come up with a different sensor than the one I pulled from the car. Do you know anywhere else I could find this part? Any other ideas on what might be wrong given make and model etc.? Thanks.
Hey Scotty, I was wondering how good Toyotas are. I hear you raving about them. I'm a die-hard chevy fan but they have really gone down hill. I'm curious to know if you like Toyotas because your Celica was from a time where most vehicles were quality made or if they are quality thru and thru. I may be interested in buying one, which Toyota sedan should I buy?
Hello Scotty! I have a problem with Seat Ibiza 1.9 TDI 1998. It does not start. The starter was tested and is fine, the relay is clicking when turning the key, the line from starter to fuse box is good. If I push start the car it runs just nice. There is no immobiliser. Today I managed to get it to crank just a bit by moving the fuse box left and right. Please help!
