I'm selling this van for parts value as the frame is bad. It has been sitting for a long time and does not get started very much. For the past few months after not being started for awhile (intervals) it will crank fine but it will not start. To get it started I have to pull the tubular air...

NY stretch limo fatal crash - officials seized airbag module - why? by [email protected]
Some guy on the evening news claimed it was the vehicle's "black box recorder" eh? Some of the airbag controllers I have seen are quite simple and independent. They would not be logging data. I would think the ECU is more likely to do this. I believe they store maxima for the last engine start:...

ignition hard to turn by Tim R
It's an older Chevy. Occasionally the key didn't want to turn, but enough jiggling and I could get it to start. Now it's every time, and I'm never sure I'll get it. Would spraying lubricant into the keyhole help, or make it worse?

Is this some kind of be-metallic effect? I want a new one now (autozone $32.99), so when I install it should I put a fiber glass pad up...
