Sounds like it's a switch on the transmission.

No start


battery is bad! check this: when car is running the battery voltage should be at least 14.3 volts or a little higher. when engine is off battery voltage should be at least 13 volts, if the voltage going into battery is below 14 volts when running then alternator is bad. if it is ok then battery needs replaced,

2006 chevy silveado 2500hd 6.ol 92,000 miles no oil pressure!


Oil pressure is created by the oil pump, the main bearings and cam bearings. If these bearing are worn, excessive clearance, you will lose oil pressure. The rattling could be a rod bearing or wrist pin. You could try installing a "wet gauge" and check the oil pressure against the OEM specs, at different RPMS.

Hard as hell to get 325i 1991 started first thing in the morning. Mass Air Box good,new plugs and fuel filter. Any Ideas... Once it gets warmed up runs great ? Shannon

This is a 19 year old 325 with presumably over 150000 miles on the clock so you can expect many problems to crop up if you keep the car.

1. Check the oxygen sensor which will die on these engines.

2. Check the engine coils which are also prone to failure and may be on their last legs.

If the car is frequently parked in the open in freezing conditions you will have trouble starting it because the electronics will play up.
