Customer Question
My girlfriend didnt put...

My girlfriend didnt put the ratiator cap on right drove about 20 miles and then it stopped and was smoking i changed the head gaskets put new oil and followed the book on the timing but when i try to crank it over it acts like the battery is dead

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

And i changed the head cause it was warped so i changed that to and yes i did its at 12.13 volts nd not on a 2001 pt cruzier

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

2001 PT crusier, Chrysler

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ive changed the wires,plugs,motor oil,(cause it smelt burnt)head gasket,head,battery,checked the starter its good and yes im doing it myself

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
