2.4 quad 4 motor job

I would avoid, at all costs, 2.4L quad four engine. This engine has an internal water pump which when it wears out, will leak antifreeze into the oil sump and wear out the bearings on the bottom end of the engine. Replacing the water pump is a major job due to the lack of room in the engine compartment also. Replacement parts are also something of a problem, due to the fact that the supply of good used parts have somewhat dried up in the 11 or 12 years since this engine has been out of production.

chrsyler dip stick problems

Had the same issue. Plastic handle at the top of the broke off leaving the dip stick in the tub with a small amount of the plastic hand top left in the tube. I used a long deck screw and slowly and carefully hand turned it into the plastic, eventually applying a screw driver to give it a final smidge of a turn to make sure it was secure. then gently tugged straight out and it came out. don't wiggle it as that will weaken what is left of the plastic plug and it will break losing your only chance at pulling it out without a much larger project.

maf sensors

An engine with a bad MAF sensor may be hard to start or stall after starting. It may hesitate under load, surge, idle rough or run excessively rich or lean. The engine may 
also hiccup when the throttle suddenly changes position. 
If you suspect a MAF sensor problem, scan for any fault codes. A MAF problem should (but does not always) set a fault code. Codes that may indicate a problem with 
the sensor include: GM: Code 33 (too high frequency) and Code 34 (too low frequency) on engines with multiport fuel injection only, and Code 36 on 5.

Hello! I’m new to this site, but I’m hoping someone can help me out. I’ve searched for a bit but haven’t found the answer to my exact question. So, here it goes… I took my Cobalt in because of a clunking noise (from the front end) it had going over bumps. Anyway, when thecarwas up on the lift, the mechanic showed me that he could easily move the stabilizer bar up and down. He told me that I needed to replace the control arm bushings. I just bought this car (used with 80K) so I’m not too familiar with its suspension…I know control arm bushings are a common cause for the clunking noise on Cobalts, but would bad control arm bushings really cause the stabilizer to be loose?


Continental is recalling 390,657 Contitrac TR tires produced between May 2007 and September 2008. The tires were fitted as original equipment on 2008 and 2009 model year Ford F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks. The tires were also sold as aftermarket products.
According to the South Carolina-based tire maker, the Contitrac tires could experience tread belt separation under some condition, increasing the likelihood of a crash. Continental will replace the affected tires free of charge.


It's important to make sure your tires are adequately filled, but for some Toyota Tundra owners, that may be a problem. A recall notice has been issued for some 2007-2011 Tundras because they may be afflicted with faulty tire pressure monitoring systems. Approximately 1,629 pickups are affected by this recall, as it is limited to vehicles handled by Southeast Toyota Distributors.

The TPMS were incorrectly calibrated, which means the warning lamp will not light up despite a tire being under-inflated. Owners of potentially affected trucks are being notified, and dealers will recalibrate the systems free of charge.
