I have this same prob.elche1 wrote:I have 2 questons:
1) Does anyone know how to disconnect the alarm system or bypass the system?
2) My J-30 1995 cranks but dosn't start. The Sparks are good, and fuel pressure is good also. Where can I go from here. I think it might have something to due with the alarm . I get no siren or horn on the security system.
I think you should have put the drive wheels on the dollie.heynow775 wrote:i had to pull my1995 j30 with a dollie about 100 miles, it a auto trans. when i went to take it of the dollie it would go into reverse, when i got it offit only gose in drive, you can put it into nutral and its still in drive.you can put it into park and it wont rev. but it feels like its still in drive. what do you think
OBD1 has only 2 O2 sensors (93, 94, 95). OBD2 has 4 (96, 97).graydragon wrote:did you notice an increase in your gas milage with your O2 sensors changed out? are there only 2? thanks.
You do not need to remove the radiator hoses, all the belts / screws are accessible from underneath the car. I've replaced all three belts just be loseening up the bolts w/o any other removal of parts on my 1994 J30rclem7 wrote:Belt Replacement:
I will try and explain as best I can since I just did this a week ago.
You will have to start by removing the intake tubing, and the two radiator hoses. This will open up the top of the engine and allow you to work.
There are three belts on the car, and of course the one you want to replace is the hardest to get to. You will need to loosen up and remove all the belts. The compressor belt has a tension pully on it. You will need to loosen the nut on the face of that pully, then loosen the bolt pointing down, and that will loosen the compressor belt.
The power steering belt will be removed by loosening the pump itself. In similar fasion, there is a bolt on the lower side of the pump that will need to be loosened. There is a nut on the back side that locks the tension bolt that will need to be loosened, then loosen the tension bolt. You may have to loosen a bolt on the top side of the pump to get it to swivle.
Next you will do the same to the alternator. Loosen the nut on the back side of the tension bolt, then loosen the bolt. I also had to loosen a mounting bolt above the alternator to get it to swivle as well. Once you have the alternator belt loose, you can remove the fan by removing the four bolts on the face. I just was able to get it out the top and out of the way. I don't know if there is an easier way or not, but be very carefull when doing so as not to damage some wires or the timing belt housing. You might even consider loosening the alternator belt first so that you can get the fan out of the way as one of the first steps.
Replace the belts. Would be a good idea to inspect the other ones too since you will have them off. They're not that expensive. Reassemble in reverse order. Just be sure that the alternator belt is the last one you tighten since you will have to replace the fan. It took me about 2 hours to complete the job, but I went into it blindly since I just bought the car.
