Alright, my mother's car has been acting up...

She went to town day before yesterday, called and said it would start, then die... Then no start at all. got there,it wouldn't even hit with starting fluid into the air intake. A few minutes later, fired right up, ran great.

she drove as we followed her, then it died again on a feeder road, luckily there were plenty of places of business to pull into, just so happened, it died right in front of a car dealership.

any how, after it set a minute, fired back up.. Ran great. Drove it around yesterday. Ran flawless.

My mom went to pickup groceries last night, called, said it died on her.

Me and my brother grabbed a tow strap and took off... Got there, wouldn't hit a lick.

Brought it home after it had cooked off, fired up. Ran great.

This morning we're looking at it, we let it idle for a bit, it died.

Hooked up  my trusty spark tester to a plug wire....no spark...

After it set for about 3 minutes, we tried to start it with the tester hooked up to the wire, and plug..It fired once then nothing....after it cooled again, fired right up.... I told my dad, next time it dies, check the spark coming from the coil to The distributor, as one plug wire from the coil to The distributor. So it died again, hooked the spark tester inline from the coil to distributor..Spark!!!  Took the tester off and reinstalled the coil to distributor wire and it fired right up.... So sometimes when it dies, it fires right up, other times, it won't and has no spark.

Alright, replaced the Distributor cap and rotor.... no change... idles for 25-30 minutes then without a miss or sputter dies. then fires right back up... in the spark tester the spark is a good bright blue.

Finally got smart.

After it died, hooked up the spark tester inline coming from the Coil wire that goes to the distributor.... It died, fitted the tester, cranked it, No spark.

Replaced coil on monday all is good so far!!!

      So I had some problems with slippage during some of the hot days. Bought this 2014 chevy equinox AWD used with about 90k on it and I guess the tranny was never serviced. Drained and refilled the fluid in the transmission, which was only about 4 quarts or so (need to flush to get it all) and it was black. Did it again in a week or so to mix in some good fluid. Car ran alright but instead of a slippage, it started to develop a hard shift. Next day, started to drive it and it would all of a sudden rev out like its in neutral. Coasted the car to the side of the road and moved the shifter, but would not engage into drive or reverse. i shut the car off and restarted and then it would go into drive (electronic control) but after a few feet it would pop back into a neutral state with the shift indicator in drive.

      WD-40 Brand is auctioning its classic 1951 Chevrolet 3100 to benefit SEMA Cares charities, including Childhelp. 
      The auction is taking place on
      link hidden, please login to view from Feb. 28 to March 7. WD-40 Brand and SEMA Cares partnered with Trad Ronfeldt to rebuild the WD-40 Brand/SEMA Cares Custom 1951 Chevrolet 3100, which debuted at the 2021 SEMA Show at the WD-40 Brand booth. All of the proceeds from the auction will go to SEMA Cares Charities, including Childhelp, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
      Ronfeldt – a seasoned automotive mechanic, fabricator, welder, and professional off-road crew chief – had an ambitious plan to rebuild the vehicle from the ground up. He wanted to create something that looked like it just rolled off the production line, and he accomplished this and more.
      The 1951 Chevrolet 3100 is now a road-ready vehicle that maintains its classic look with a custom-built dually rear-end, backed by added horsepower and superior performance. Ronfeldt fabricated the truck bed from new materials to imitate the truck’s body lines to make it look like a Chevrolet production piece straight off the assembly line.
      In addition, the vehicle has numerous updates, including:  
      A V-8 fuel-injected 383 Stoker producing 500+ horsepower   Custom dually rear with widened Currie axle   New suspension design   A restored cab interior with new upholstery and distressed leather seats   A custom patina paint job   Completely new drivetrain and transmission   View images of the truck and learn more at

      We're looking for the braided brake line/hose that runs from the master cylinder to the ABS module of a 2010 Chevy Impala. They're no longer available through GM and we can't find any in the salvage yards.
