timing belt went while driving car on highway. Belt ,water pump and replacement belt changed. Timing is set correctly, , ignition coil replace but car will crank but will not start up. Wondering if internal engine damage was done. Is there any way to find his out.

Lube place changed my oil and 180 miles later it had lost 3 qts. Brought back and they "discovered" crack in oil pan about 3 inches long starting from outer ridge of bung hole. Stated that it was NOT done by them. Pan is not rusted at all, They repaired it with JB weld but I dont trust it. How much would it cost to replace oil pan, are they available new for my 1997 and Could there be any other explanation than they over torqued the bolt and cracked the bunghole?

I have been having problems with a the idle ever since I accidently started the car with the MAP sensor unplugged. Ever since then the car has idled very low, just over 500 rpm. I bought a new MAP sensor, cleared the error code and did a "idle learn", I cleaned the idle air control valve because it has a very rough idle. Now the car has started to stall when I put the car in park and turn the AC off. PLEASE HELP!!!

When I'm driving the temp will start going up as soon as I stop somewhere. And it will also start rising if going up a hill. But when I start driving normal again the temp gauge will go back Down then up and back and forth. Sometimes it'll even say it's in the red then randomly go right back to the middle. When I look under the hood the car never seems over heated.

The check engine light came on, the error code is p0706. I did some research online, is it the park/neutral position switch? If so where would it be located? Thanks

My car was overheating & shut off so I had radiator hose replaced(the one all the way at the bottom so much had to be taken out to get it. Now its fixed but car makes putt putt noises & moves slowly after my first & second stops then it works itself out & drives normally. It doesnt do it all the time though. I'm getting paranoid to drive it. I'm thinking will it cut off & did shop not do something right? Or put parts back correctly. It is like exhaust system jerk putt putts.

Vehicle is a 1997 accord, Special Edition, with 180,000. Problem is extremely intermittent. I can go 2 to 3 weeks between occurrences. When this occurs, other electrical components (lights, radio, etc) are functioning properly. Mechanic checked out all systems and they appear to be fine. He seems to think may be ignition switch, but not sure.
