The stereo is just stock and only has a radio. No tape deck or CD player.
The compressor doesn't turn on when I turn the AC on.
The cruise control stopped working before the horn. Could this just be a bad fuse?
When I get into the car after it has been sitting for some time it smells like maybe burnt oil or a weak gas smell. Not sure where it is coming from. No engine overheating issues, no gas in the oil or coolant. I do notice that there are some greasy areas around the camshaft position sensor and near the intake manifold gaskets. Could this be an engine oil leak?
The speedometer won't work
My A/C began to blow warm air and the temp gauge dropped then rose rapidly as I lost steering. Pulled over and had car towed.
Is it possible to diagnose or repair without pulling the tank? I am low on funds, but don't want to junk car. Everything else works fine. Would this problem prevent me from getting an inspection sticker in MA? It does cause engine light to come on, but can drive for awhile before it does.
Light has been on since I bought the car in October & I never paid it no Mind until now. Because I was just driving it two days ago and I park for about an couple of hours. Left back out to go& it wont start.
3 switches the center raises and lowers the unit before but now has a decided rear tilt to it, cant get the seat to lower in the front. Rear switch, works okay to level things out but then it's too high. looking for the fuse as first step, then the motor or the switch itself ... any ideas how to test these?
I was told it could be the heater core
