Tailgate Issue

The tailgates are both the same. The accident has thrown the rear of the car out of position and hence it does not fit.

new key help

The key was not cut properly. That happens when it was not done as it should. Try applying some WD40 with straw to the lock inside; it might help

Complete overhaul parts list?

Which state in USA? Puma won't last long in NY, MA etc because of their salty winters. Arizona on the other hand would be perfect! Where I live, we have salty and very salty winters (road gets covered with mixture of gravel and salt to prevent freezing, or to promote melting of snow and ice). If yo...

The first 3 items that spring to my mind: coilpack, the plastic termostate housing and the infamous heat control valve. After that it all depends on the condition of the car in question, but these 3 items I would replace anyhow, just for the piece of mind as the question is not if any of those is go...

ABS kicking in every minute or so-need help please

There is a procedure to bleed the ABS unit by diagnostic equipment if it traps some air. However, if you fill the system properly and pressurize it while adding the brake fluid, it should drive the air out

You just pull the handles out of the rubber grommets holding it in place. After that you can take them through the carpet

ABS kicking in every minute or so-need help please

Using feeler gauge should be possible to measure the gap. At least at front as it is doable there without problems. If you have replaced sensors, have you cleaned the hubs so the sensor can go in all the way? The rings could be deformed, it is very easy to do when you are taking out the sensors whic...

I had the same situation with my honda. It was giving 12.7V, but not turning the engine. Tester showed it had 120 Amps out of declare...

It won't turn over and when the key is in the third start position the needles don't run round the dials?
If that was the case, that was the sign of a flat battery. Is the battery OK?

I would recommend using the EHPAS from Toyota MR2, the later model. It is all in one unit with ECU incorporated and you get to keep the steering rack as it is. Check my thread for details on that

ABS fault light

Yes, the system monitored that front wheels have been spinning, but the rears not. ABS does not know that the car was jacked up and so concludes that the rear sensors are potentially dead. Hence the warning light. Once you reach 20 kph speed, the ABS will trigger self test and erase the DTC and put ...
