the oil level sensor is screwed into the engine block on the front of the engine it has a 2pin connector on the end of it.

as for the fuel filter its probably an intank one, the service life of these ones is something like 160,000 miles, to change these u will need to remove the fuel tank sender unit and if you do make sure its practicaly empty of fuel because the plastic fuel tanks can distort

Sounds like a weak ignition component, change the spark plug wires and cap and rotor if not already done, there is also an outside chance the ignition module located inside the distributor could be failing.

Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail

Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.

If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It depends upon you skill level and the tools you posses, you need to disconnect the battery terminal and drain the radiator then remove all drive belts, remove the pulley on the water pump, if attempting I would recommend purchasing a $20.00 Haynes repair manual to walk you throught he procedure so you don't get in trouble the cooling system on 4 cylinders are critical considering any over heating issues can warp cylinder heads from over heating just once. do it right the first time

sounds like a fuel filter issue or injector issue the idea behind turning the key on and off then back on is to run the fuel pump as it will pressurize the line or it could be the fuel pump itself have you ever run injector cleaner through your tank ...also may be a actually a few many things i consider all possibilities 1 st visually inspect all vacuum lines and wires that may be exposed as well as the fuel line etc.you can check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge Auto Zone will lend you the tool on the spot to determine the proper pressure and this will help you in the process of elimination

generally, glowing exhaust is a sign of either the engine being severely retarded, fuel mixture being super lean or the catalytic converter on the exhaust being restricted. Check all. Loosing power can be retarded or restricted cat. I'd check cat first.

If the key fob is broken you must replace it. If the electronic of at least one key fob is still good you can try reconditioning.

Key fob reconditioning is £.39.
