    Is it my starter

      Usually the clicking sound (like a machine guns) means that the starter motor solenoid is rapidly engaging and disengaging. The reason behind this is because not enough current can turn the motor; so it continuously tries. Causes of this are a bad/undercharged battery. If your car has been sitting for an extended period (1-2 weeks) without being started, the battery voltage will slowly drop. Also, if your alternator is unable to put out the proper voltage while your car is running, it will not charge the battery.

    Replaced the head gasket. Now the fuel injectors don't work. They work when tested.
    I kept everything in place during the head repair. When I plug in the OBD scanner I get no codes. But, this is where it gets interesting, with the scanner plugged in the car runs. Pull the scanner plug and the car stops. Any ideas? Thanks

    Can't find my oil filter
    I am trying to change the oil on the beast and can't seem to find the oil filter. I was told it would be near the gas tank but can't seem to find where. Is it in the box that looks like a pumpkin?

      The engine oil filter is located on the side of the engine block, just above the oil pan - easy reach from above the engine.

    AC stopped blowing cold air, I was told it was a problem with the compressor. Replaced the compressor, expansion valve, and drier. The AC still doesn't blow cold air. What else could it be?

      The check engine light is located on the dash and stays on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem.

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA, etc. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light. There are literally hundreds of possible fault codes and therefore numerous reasons for the MIL condition.

      This step is important - retrieving the stored fault code and relaying this detail - will provide good information to assist in diagnosing and repairing the issue you are having.
