The switch? Or the lock cylinder? If you have the old one out,turn the new lock cylinder to the on position ,line up the grooves on the cylinder with the grooves in the column and it should slide right in and click in.

Try spraying starting liquid at the throttle body and then start.If it starts and runs smooth then its faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter issue.--------

A car that cranks over but doesn't start, in many cases will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also these problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt. If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced. If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the car. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If its very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gauge and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem. Thanks. Helpmech.

The oil cooler can be bypassed, just hook the hoses together if you want.

The anti-freeze leaking outside along the firewall indicates that your vehicle's coolant line leading towards the cabin heater is leaking. The leak can be resolved by refreshing the gaskets on the connector or having it serviced by a qualified a/c-heating technician.
Hope this helps.

There are two tiny motors in each mirror. one for up/down. One for side to side. They have jack screws (plastic) that fit into the motors.

You can manually put your hands on either side of the mirror and force adjust it. If you hear a ratcheting sound, the jack screws are OK. Then repeat with hands on top and bottom.

If you hear ratcheting and mirror stays where you stop it, that means one of the motors is bad. The motor assembly is available as a separate part.

Yes the faulty ignition switch can definitely drain the battery.Because actually the car is not got completely off.You inserted the key in the ignition switch and turned it to off.But because the ignition switch is faulty the car did not turned off.It remained ON.The other possibility is that the ignition switch is got internally short and causing this problem.There are many other possibilities too for this battery getting drained when car is off.But as per your question which you asked,yes.If the ignition switch is faulty then car battery gets drained even when the car is off. ---------- Get the ignition switch checked by meter and confirm the fault. --------- Thanks.Helpmech.

They are usually in the Drivers' fender well, ahead of the front tire and below the engine airtake snorkel. You should be able to follow the air lines running to it.
