The last couple of summers during hot weather I've had trouble
starting my car. I've changed the plugs, which seemed to help, but
didn't complete remedy the problem. I do not have this trouble in the
winter or milder weather. Give me some ideas about what I can do to
fix this problem without taking the car to a mechanic. I'm on a small
disability check and really can't afford to do that unless it is
ABSOLUTELY necessary. Any advice?

Sheila, I'd venture a guess that not a one of us would have a clue as to
whether or not this fix is beyond your capabilities. Why don't you
follow the suggestion of Jim Beam and take a look at the website he
mentioned. Here... this link will take you right to the header for the
problems with the PGM-F1 relay:
Read through it, look at the ample illustrations and then answer your
own question. If nothing else, if you lack the dexterity to accomplish
the task, perhaps you can ask a friend or neighbor to do it for you.
It's not rocket science but it does require the ability to read and
follow directions as well as the aforementioned manual dexterity.
That one has been up. down, up, down several times over the years. Looks
like the domain has now expired. The page might be located someplace else;
I'll have to check. If not, I have a locally-saved copy...
Thanks for the heads-up.
