Had a rear end accident but it appears to be minimal damage. Now there is fluid leaking on both sides of the rear end. Doesn't smell or look like oil, , transmission fluid or gas. I checked oil and trans and brake fluid all good. But low on power steering fluid.

No leaks under car when parked. Do fill with antifreeze.

I noticed a leak from front of car and a trail of drips, I looked and what appears to be water. If I am running air conditioner, does that cause it to drip from what appears to be water? I have never had a vehicle do that and according to what my boyfriend says, is a normal thing?

I'm getting message Service Air Bag with Computer code B1147. This indicates problem with Drivers side air bag system. How can this be fixed?

does fuel rail connect to gas tank. are there fuel lines from rail to gas tank how many labor hours

Just want to get window back up, went and stayed down this mornin but up doesn't work

Mechanic has replaced throttle position sensor & idle speed throttle actuator. He has no more fix's! Can someone help?? Some recoveries make car jump to 1500 rpm causing wife to not wanting to drive this car.

What is the cause

Leak has been fixed before with something that cost around $ 60-65. Drove it for a long time even a couple 4 hour road trips then went out. Again. Each time seems to get worse. Had towed in but haven't heard verdict.
Was told the blocks at that time were notorious for cracking. Don't want to put new engine in. Just use to run errands in with grandchildren & dogs, but I don't want to breakdown with them in the car.
Was told by friend to completely drain all coolant and oil out of system, flush lines to clean, put in the super-duper repair stuff add back in oil & coolant& drive easy.
Watching the heat gage & fluid levels etc. What do you think????
