I assuredly larboard it with him for a ages and he replaced a allotment that he said was defective. I don’t accept the name of the allotment but he said it was for a ’92 Comanchee and asked if addition had formed on it before, I said no. Now it is already afresh not starting intermittently and am at a accident as to go aback to the aforementioned mechanic, a altered mechanic, or get rid of the Jeep.
Thanks for demography my question.
Pat Goss: First, is it defective ammunition burden due to no ammunition pump operation or is it defective ammunition burden due to an centralized ammunition arrangement leak. To actuate which the abutting time it refuses to alpha about-face the key off and aback to the run position (without agreeable the starter) 5 or 6 times. This will prime the ammunition arrangement and if the Jeep starts you accept an centralized aperture in the arrangement not a ammunition pump failure. If it still doesn’t alpha analysis ammunition pump base including arena and the ammunition pump relay.

Some dealers and some absolute shops will run analysis procedures generally referred to as define testing to attack to acquisition the answer.
Ann Arbor, Michigan: Aback I circle my tires, the caster and annoy accumulation is, of course, balanced. In acclimation to actualize a activating vs. changeless balance, the boutique places weights on the exoteric of the wheels, which looks horrible, not to acknowledgment marks the wheels. Added than opting for the beneath adorable changeless antithesis or accepting the tires removed from and afresh re-mounted to the auto anniversary time the tires are rotated, are there any added options for accomplishing a activating antithesis afterwards accession exoteric caster weights?
Pat Goss: Absolutely — Of beforehand — But not at the boutique you’re using. With the acceptance of aerial dollar auto there are machines that accord an accomplished activating antithesis and alike accept the adeptness to adumbrate the central weights abaft caster spokes. That way you can’t alike attending through the caster and see the close weights. The actual best apparatus in my opinion(and what I own and use in my shop) is the Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Balancer. It is absolutely amazing.
Washington, D.C.: What happens if you run your car with a burst exhaust? I accept an 86 Toyota- don’t appetite to put added money into it- I’d like to drive it till spring.

Woodbridge, Virginia: I own a 1990 Jeep Cherokee Limited, w/4 L beeline 6 butt engine. I’ve had all the anchor pads replaced, but it is like I don’t accept abundant adeptness braking system. Which would you replace….the vaccum pump or the adept butt or both? Is there a way to analysis anniversary one instead of guessing? I accept affluence of pedal but not alot of braking abetment from my adeptness anchor booster. Thanks, Mark
Pat Goss: I wouldn’t alter either until they accept been tested. Analysis don’t guess.

Pat Goss: Analysis the aperture on the differential. Generally acquainted vents will account boundless burden and allowance failure.
Baltimore, Md.: I assumption I charge a beeline answer. I accept a newVW Passat Wagon. Two weeks old with 2000miles on it. The brakes accept been awe-inspiring – somevibration and babble aback activated at highwayspeed and absolutely poor performance. I took it to thedealer and they acquaint me that they abstinent thefront rotors and the are “shot”. The runoutmeasurement is above blueprint and so they willreplace the rotors.
I anticipation the accessible questions was “Why?”.They accept no acknowledgment but aloof appetite to alter therotors and say all will be fine. Aback I pushed theysuggested that maybe the rotors had blight on themfrom sitting on the lot afore purchase. Theywouldn’t let me allocution to the tech who actuallyworked on the car. I anticipate article is fishy. Am Icrazy? How should I proceed? Alike if thebraking achievement is OK afterwards replacing therotors, I would anticipate addition would appetite to knowwhy it happened to accomplish abiding it doesn’t happenagain. Or maybe they accept anchored somethingcheaply and they aren’t cogent me about it.
What should I do?
Pat Goss: An EXTREMELY accepted account of this is absolutely what they are cogent you. Rust. A additional accepted account is abnormal abbreviating of the caster lugs. Allotment of the pre-delivery analysis is blockage lug torque but it is generally over-looked.
Fort Washington, Md.: I accept a 1997 Plymouth Voyager (169,000 miles) that has been arrested several times for the aforementioned problem. Initially it was anticipation to be a abortion in one of the computer modules but the specific bore could not be identified. Afterwards the aftermost attack to fix the botheration (they bankrupt the burke body) it began acting up aural a week. Beneath is a account of aggregate I can anticipate of about the appropriate things that accept happened:
1. The winshield wipers arise on afterwards actuality activated. This has been activity on aback anon afterwards I bought the van in ’97. Initially it was alone aback you acclimated the about-face arresting to announce a appropriate turn. That has now progressed to advancing on about behindhand of whether the about-face arresting is activated.
2. The gauges abort while driving, afterwards axis off the agitation and restarting the agent the gauges work. Aback the gauges fail, the agent continues to run. If you stop and restart the agent the gauges assignment (that is if the agent doesn’t abeyance on restart).
3. The final and best austere botheration is the ignition. Aback you try to alpha the van, IF IT STARTS WITHOUT THE GAUGES REGISTERING, it will abeyance afterwards a few seconds. IF THE GAUGES REGISTER, it will abide to run. Repeated attempts to alpha it afterwards it shutdowns will fail; aback it gets to this point it won’t alpha unless you abstract the array for at atomic 12 hours. This doesn’t necessarily appear everytime, you can accomplish several trips afore the abortion occurs. However, disconnecting the array no best works as a displace for the computer. The van will not abide to run if the gauges don’t register. Appropriate now it cannot be started successfully.
The starting/running problems began afterwards either an anxiety arrangement abortion or addition aggravating to illegally access the agent compartment. I had anchored the van on the barn and set the anxiety afresh gone in the house. About 5-10 account afterwards the anxiety went off and the awning was unlatched. As I had not opened the awning I accept addition had pulled the latch cable from beneath appropriately activating the alarm. Anon afterwards this adventure the start/run botheration began.
If I could get it to run I would accompany it into your shop, but that’s rather ambiguous appropriate now.
Pat Goss: Activate by apathy computers. Aboriginal acclimation of business is to at atomic briefly abstract the alarm. If does not fix the botheration accept addition analysis the agitation about-face and wire accouter connectors abnormally the arena access on anniversary of the afflicted circuits.
Arlington, Va.: Hello Mr. Goss,
My Acura TSX seems to accept a austere botheration with abstract on the central windows every morning. The banker says this is “normal,” but I anticipate it needs to be fixed.

Pat Goss: Analysis with Tweeters for the car phone. I’ve interviewed a brace of their administration bodies and they absolutely accept to apperceive the automotive aftermarket business.
As to the condensation, there may be damp in the car. If it has anytime had a baptize leak, damp can aggregate in the carpeting which will advance to a lot of window fogging.
Fairfax, Va.: Should we use parking anchor all the time? Or putting car into parking about-face is enough?
Pat Goss: Esplanade is never enough. Consistently use the parking brake. The able action is administer the parking anchor afresh put the accessory selector into park. This will abode all the amount on the brakes rather than the transmission.
Richmond, Va.: I own a Lexus 1990 ES 250. Lately, I got this botheration on my car: Afterwards I esplanade my car for about 4 or 5 hrs, I apprehension the coolant was beneath neeth my car. I did ask a technican, he told me that the baptize pump is leaking, I charge to change it. Is it right? (The coolant alone leaks from about afterwards I park)
Pat Goss: The artisan has apparent it, I accept not. Waterpumps frequently alone appearance arising afterwards the agent has been shut off. Unfortunately there are several added things that acknowledge that way as well.
Brandywine, Md.: The chiral on my 1991 Auto Am w/350 agent has started to blooper (over rev) beneath dispatch aback starting in the “overdrive” position. If I alpha out with the accessory about-face in the “drive” position, it does not slip. So now I alpha out in drive – afresh about-face to overdrive aback at speed.
