My cars heater would not warm up the car this morning and I noticed the car was pegged hot by the guage. I put water in the radiator because it was bone dry. I then had heat and right now, its currently not overheating?Is there a bigger underlying problem??

So, all windows were down and the sunroof open during the day. Went out that evening to close her up, and the sunroof, drivers front, and passenger rear window would not close. Other two windows go up and down fine. Fuse looks fine. Replaced master window switch with a new part and no change. ???????

My 1997 Honda Accord has 181,000 mi. I bought it w/165,000, 6 months ago. I've changed the oil every 5000 or so. I've noticed that on occasions, when I start it up in the morning, that it smokes (white, cloudy) until it warms up. The remainder of the day is smoke-free, usually. Oil weepage in the combustion chamber or coolant burning, I'm not sure what it is, exactly. Incidently, I do find it necessary to add a quart or two of oil (5-30, synthetic)between oil changes. I assumed this is normal with a high mileage car, due to worn rings, blow-by, etc. Could this be the case? Or is this indicative of another, more major problem? If you were me, hoe would you investigate or trouble shoot or is this just normal on an older Honda Accord?

Had high pressure power steering hose replacecd. They got power steering fluid on the torque converter. Looked like a radiator over heating mist when engine stopped.

my car squeaks for little bump i hit and the steering wheel squeaks when when i turn left or right when car is in park what can cause these problems

t first it seemed to be a slight grinding but after three days it became louder more present grinding noise. At best is the noise coming from the rotor warp or lack of material on the rotor itself or pad demise.

what is the actual labor time?

My front passenger side squeaks like an old mattress when i go over a bump or uneven part in the road. My mechanic thinks it's the control arm. He sprayed it with lubricant, but I don't see a price on your site if it needs to be replaced.

In the winter time my windows have trouble closing back up. It got stuck once and wouldn't come back up. My father decided to fix this himself, after he fixed the window problem my door now makes a weird noise (groaning noise) everytime I lock my car. I assume my father didn't do a great job and left something un-screwed when he took apart my door to fix my window. What is the best solution to this problem? If I happen to take it to a shop, how much is the estimated price?

I am assuming this is a "Power Door Lock Actuator Replacement" problem?

*a groaning noise from the door as the lock is operating.

How I know It is necessary to change it an how much

I have changed the thermostat, pcv valve, new coolant and it still overheats and has an eratic idle. It does not have eratic idle upon startup, but after about 3-4 minutes is when it starts. Also the hose for the pcv valve wants to suck in as if it is starving for air. Cannot figure it out. PLEASE HELP!
