questions

traffic (lights, stop signs, etc) it starts to chug as if it will stall. When I'm on the highway and step on the gas the acceleration is not smooth. I've had a complete tuneup, new oxygen sensors, new SAP, new PCV valve and hose and use Techtron fuel line cleaner.. Any ideas as to what is causing the problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

First thought it was a bad pump out of the box so I took it back and got another one - same problem. Seals on the old pump were dry rotted causing the leak.

it has an oily odor as well

After running 5 - 10 minutes the windows start to fog up. After i stop the car and it sits the windshield fogs up and i have to use a towel to clean it before driving again. Could there be a problem with the heater core?

What else could be the cause? I find it hard to believe that all 3 batteries were bad! There has to be something else causing the battery to be completely dead after 3 days!y

My wipers won't work! Neither does the windshield washer. I changed the wiper fuse. Then I changed the wiper control/ cruise control/ signal/ lever. Then I changed the switch that the wiper/signal lever connects to and still nothing. I changed the circuit board on the wiper motor. I bypassed everything by grounding the motor and connecting the battery positive directly to the motor and IT WORKED. Which leads me to believe that it might be more than just the motor. I'm completely stumped! I'm not crazy about letting strangers (mechanics) touch my little girl, but I will if I have to. My biggest question is, is it possible for a bad washer pump to cause the entire system to fail?

I have spent over $4000.00 to have the throttle body replaced, the ECM, all sparkplug wires and plugs, replaced the rotor cap and rotor, replaced throttle body and sensor. Had fuel pump and filter checked. Car will die at slow speed like parking or stopping at a red light. When I hit it hard on the freeway it will hesitate and shudders and feels like it is going to stall. I have no idea except perhaps injectors. It really seems like a fuel problem. The dealer is suggesting that it could be the solenoid sensor for the OD on the transmission and I am taking it in this morning to have that disconnected to see if that helps. They can not find any problems when it is connected to the computer and they scan all systems. Any suggestions???

My wipers won't work! I changed the wiper fuse. Then I changed the wiper control/ cruise control/ signal/ lever. Then I changed the switch that the wiper/signal lever connects to and still nothing. Before you recommend the obvious, to change the wiper motor, I have to mention that the windshield washer isn't working either. No washer fluid sprays when the washer switch on the signal lever is pressed. Which leads me to believe that it might be more than just the motor. So, is the motor the fix? Or am I missing something?

i have a 95 corvette it will start right up when it is cold but after it warms up it will not click or anything i replaced the ignition switch but no luck what else can it be

We can not fine the sensor.

Problem occurs maybe once or twice past year. Happen yesterday, disconnected battery for 30 seconds (reset computer)and it started. Starter solenoid was replace and bench tested a two months ago. Someone said change starter relay. Looked in Chilton and Haynes and could not find.
PLEASE! PLEASE HELP!

Last week when I drove my Vette (which has 35K original miles) the Warning Light - Add Coolant came on. I had put close to 1 gallon of coolant in it about a week ago. It does not appear to be loosing fluid but I then put close to another gallon of coolant in it this weekend. What I should I tell a repair shop to look at? I THOUGHT I had had the radiator flushed about 6 mos. ago, but perhaps they did not complete the work. I also notice some rust deposits on the dipstick for the coolant. What should I do?

This week in the freezing drizzle I turned on my windshield wipers for the first time since it was inspected last Nov/Dec. To my surprise they started up and then "froze" in the up/on position. I have since tried turning them on/off, but nothing happens. What should I have the repair shop look for?
