    I wouldn't guess at TPS. Sounds like ignition to to me. I would try new plugs for a start.

    Your fuel pump may be failing. It does happen. Next time it doesn't start try thumping the bottom of the fuel tank with your fist. This is often sufficient to get a seized fuel pump stated again. You...

    Don't jump to conclusions if you know nothing about cars. The fuel system and injectors are probably fine. It could be that the ignition timing is incorrect if it's been messed with. Why can't you...

    I'm no oil expert, but only the first you have mentioned says Type F so why shouldn't you use it. The others may be fine, but I can't advise you more than this.

    The 900 auto gearbox is a Type-37 made by Borg-Warner. It should have only Type F ATF. It's red, a little hard to find and not really compatible with any other fluid. If the fluid is clear, it's the...

    It requires two different oils because the auto gearbox and final drive are separated and require different oils. 19K seems a very low mileage. My advice; top up if required but don't change the oil....

    Several possibilities;
    Alternator bearing failure ( seems likely if bat light comes on occasionally). Check this by using a stethoscope on alt. body to check noise. Or use a long screwdriver...

    3/4 of the way up the gauge is not overheating. Overheating is when the gauge is in the top red section. The correct engine stat for the 900 is 90C, which when the engine is fully warmed up should...

    Chance of it damaging the head is very low. If anything is damaged it will be to the top of the timing chain cover which the bolts pass through. If it looks ok, it probably is.

    Does it start with 'Easystart' (ether) sprayed into the intake? Do this through an intake rubber bush. If it runs it's probably a fuel issue. If it doesn't run it's probably spark and I would first...

    You may just have a water leak. The fumes can get through the vent system and smell strange. Check that the coolant level is not going down.
