a gear sign showed on the dashboard a year ago but when I turn off the car and put it on again it goes. I took it to the transmission specialist they drove the car and he told me my transmission is perfect. but when the gear sign showed I kept it and when he scanned it said the transmission is slipping and needs to be changed. but when I drive the car I even go top speed and nothing wrong in the shifting. only when the sign is on the car drive slow until I turn it off and on. kindly advice if its a sensor or something else. because its been a year and still the car shift perfect. thank you in advance
Its just covered 52000 miles and thought it was quite odd. Took it to a respected garage and they said it could be the head gasket. Is it common for head gaskets to leak after 52000 miles or could it just be the Valve Cover Gasket that it mentions in one of your Q&A boxes???
Did I blow a head gasket? If so how much to repair?
Safe to drive until I get repair?
Moved from madiaon to white lake wisconsin. 2 1/2 hr drive. I got my oil changed at walmart before i left for the long trip. I made it to my desrination. Then i went to a town 30 miles from me and my engine blew 3/4 of the way there. I made it home by going 10-13 mph back home. Nothing froze and afer i turned it off it still starts with a bad clunk. Wha did i break and how much to fix
when i switch the car off for like 5 minutes , it goes away , any clue regarding that??
After driving for a brief period of time, if you stop the car (e.g. to run an errand) when you get back in- it will not start. The engine revs but never turns over. It has always started back up but sometimes after a long 20 minutes. We have been back to the dealer twice- but still are having the same damn problem $3000.00 later. They replaced the fuel pump & filter, crankshaft sensor, intake boots, disa valve, vent valve and idle valve. Please help!!
When the car is started, you can turn the cruise control on, but it goes off when the brake is pressed to put the car in gear. It will not come back on until the car is shut off and restarted.
Need to replace lower control arm bushings, but did not see them on the estimate list. Looking for price.

My car wouldn't start this morning. There's been no previous problems, no warnings. All the lights,radio, etc. are working, but when I turn the ignition it doesn't do anything....no clicking, no sound at all. AAA came out and tried to boost the battery, but there was no change; however the battery wasn't tested (honestly, I don't know where the battery is located in this car). Any ideas? I'm puzzled since I've had absolutely no problems starting the car, and all of the sudden it won't start
Front bumper was slightly pulled off and was trying to latch it back on and then car wouldnt start. battery was checked and is ok...could it be the fuel reset and where is it located
I can not open the passenger door from the outside. It will open from the inside. I have my grandkids with me a lot and am afraid if something happens, no one can open the door to help them. My car is a two door. I pressed a lot of "buttons" and may have triggered a code and need to know if this is possible and what I can do to "unlock" it. The car runs great and looks new. I brought it in Oct. 2009. I don'thave an owners manual. It is fully loaded. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you. Avis Branch
My 330 has been idling very low lately sometimes to the point where it feels like the engine wants to shut off. What could be the problem?
