    oil pressure sender

    I have decided to finally have a look to see if the wire has come off my oil pressure sender unit, i put the car on the ramps and got underneath, but to my surprise i found the sender wire just dangling and no pressure sender any where, i can see the oil warning light sender this has the wire...

    jeep grand cherokee 4.7 v8

    Had this jeep a little while now, it is converted to run on LPG, never had a problem with it yet, it has loads of power, and is super comfy, has great off road capability and i find it a great asset to go with my newly acquired gto. I have nothing bad to say about it and would recommend one of...

    erratic idle

    mmmmm, don't think that the idle control valve would look or could be fixed the same way as a vectra ,i have cured loads of vectras with the cleaning of the icv but even the later vectras have a different icv than the older models,the newer one has to be changed to fix the problem,however,--...

    erratic idle
