Where is this sensor at???

the wipers have a lot of movement when turned off.I can move the arms about 3-4 inches

Someone recently stole the entire piece of mirror glass out of the housing, leaving the adjusters intact, and an empty socket where (I presume) the fixed pivot ball on the back of a new one would fit. So it looks like it is more or less a pop-in replacement. But all I find are instructions for gluing a new piece over the remnants of the old one (there are no remnants) or the backing plate (it is gone also). But the housing and the power adjuster all work fine. Anyone know where or how I can get a replacement, with, if necessary, the backing plate?

Is there a way to test part by part??

I'm a newbie here and really don't know much about cars or car problems. I have a guy I work with that has been trying to help me fix my car, but I'm not sure we've done the right things. I have a little communication problem with him as he doesn't speak a lot of English. My Check Engine Light came on a few weeks ago. He replaced all my plugs & wires and a sensor (?? Don't know which one). Then the light came on again a day later. I took the car to Auto Zone and they said the code was P0420 & P0430. I ended up replacing both the Front & Back O2 Sensors, but they said it could also be my Catalytic Converter. The light went off. Then a few days later I started hearing a rattling noise, and the guy that has been doing the work on it says it may be the Catalytic Converter. It is worse when you are idling and in low gear, low speeds. Seems to go away when at higher speeds. He says he knows someone that can "fix it" cheaper than putting a new one in. Does this sound reasonable? Can they be fixed or is it better just to get a new one? And if so does it make a huge difference which brand or does it have to be from the Dealer? The car has about 130,000 miles on it. 4 Cylinder - 5 speed. Any advise is much appreciated. Thanks! - Clueless in Austin :(

It takes a long time for the heater to get warm. Two hoses in the engine going to heater, one gets hot and the other doesn't.

no code as yet

How expensive

Car rolls in park and doesn't start , only in neutral. Do not hear click when depressing brakes. But lights are working in rear.

sometimes I hear it when im driving at low speed. maybe the ball joints or bearing?

I need a new Catalytic Converter for my 2001 Honda Accord - My original/extant catalytic converter is California compliant - I've been told to replace with same at a cost of $1,400 - I live in NY should I replace with same or will any catalytic converter (price closer to $500) do the job just as well?

My car has a little less than a 1/4 tank of gas but will not start if it sits for a few days. The engine turns over but it seems like there is no gas even though there is about a quarter of a tank. Last time this happened, I turned the key several times to the on position and turned it back to off again without actually trying to start it. Finally, I did try and it started so I drove to the gas station. This has happened twice now... I have had the car for 10 years. What could be causing this to happen now.

It happens when I'm on the freeway going fast.

I have about 2 ft. of my muffler missing including the cat. section ,I also have 3 wires that were cut to disconnect the cat. will that be a additional cost or when they replace the cat will that fix the cut wires.

I don't smell unless I turn on ac or fans
