Hiace Hard to Start

Hi, I bought a 2005 hi ace, had it 2 days and the fuel pump went.
They fixed it but now, first thing in the morning, it starts fine, but if it sits for an hour or more has trouble starting. I took it back and they said they couldnt find anything wrong. It's still doing it and seems to be getting worse.

Knocking Sound in Honda

I have a problem with my honda civic 1988 model. It has a knocking sound that is coming from the passenger side front, after being driven say a k or more, as you slow down.

Smokey Econovan

hello, i need advice with my 98 ford econovan it's blowing blue/gray smoke(lots and lots)on start up first thing every morning but then its fine for the rest of the day no smoke at all. its only the medium wheel base not the maxi, 141,000 klm's ,i got it from the car auction last week. also put some "liquide molly" engine restore in it as it claims to restore the rings and stop smoking after 600kml's but i have only done 350klm's since putting it in and have seen little change looking at putting a thicker oil in to see if that helps. my local machenic thinks i will need to spend about $3000 on replacing the engine and i dont have that kind of money.the van runs realy well apart from the smoke on first startup. any adive on what i should do? how much to spend? and who to take it too? would be gratefully appreciated. thanks for taking the time.
