Had fuel pump replaced last Friday now the starter and battery and oil pressure dripping. Does the fuel pump breaking have anything to do with it??

I checked fuses none blown and wiring that I thought it would be but nothing . Headlights work and brake lights work any ideas

Just replaced head gaskets and intake gaskets loss of power and no throttle responds and no overdrive

The fuel pump is brand new and the filter as well, but it still does the same thing, as if there is no gas getting to the injectors. I should mention after the initial replacement the car ran fine for a couple of weeks and then back to the same symptoms for witch i replaced the pump in the first place.

If not the relay switch what else can it be.


NO OBD2 codes

Fan noise increses with fan speed

the battery was dead, I hooked jumper cables up to it but yet it wont completely turn over

If you leave the key on for 20-30 seconds car will start and stay running. Tried replacing ignition switch and ignition cylinder to no avail. When car stalls theft light flashes and then is solid. Possible to bypass theft system and return car to normalcy? I was told there is a sequence of turning the key on and off in a patterned sequence to accomplish this? Or do I have to have the cassette removed, or another radio installed? Most grateful for a solution!

One of them told me that if I didn't my serpentine belt will come off and the vehicle wouldn't run at all. His price to replace it is $600. The other told me that I can still drive it & just replace it when the belt comes off? His price for labor is $50. I don't believe anything that either of them say. I have called various auto parts stores in my area and nearly all of them tell me that I must replace the compressor, accumulator, and orifice tube in order for the compressor to be warrantied. I've also called several salvage yards regarding these parts.

I have several questions:
Is it necessary to replace all three parts?
Is it ok to buy the parts used or will this eventually lead me to replacing them again?
Can this car be driven to the shop or should it be towed?
Roughly how long does it take to make this type of repair?
Roughly how much should I expect to pay for labor for this type of job?

air bag light with seat belt lights flickering and sometimes stays

how can i bypass the anti thief system ?

Check engine light is on.

A mechanic told me that he would have to take my radiator out of my vehicle in order to find a replacement? I have previously bought used parts for my vehicle at the junk yard & was always given a list of vehicles with parts that were interchangeable with mine. Is it possible that the mechanic is going to trade my radiator in for cash or possibly bring it back to me & reinstalling it back into my vehicle? I've had this to happen to me before.

Anti-freeze had leaked onto the ground & then shortly afterwards the car started running hot. The mechanic said that a nut/bolt that holds the compressor & AC intact has worked its way loose & now is lodged into my radiator.

Does this sound right? This summer I had a mechanic to recharge my AC System & could something that he did or failed to do have caused this problem?

Thanks

The price for the alternator and a ballpark figure for labor.
