put transX in .it shifted for a week

I changed my thermostat recently and then the upper radiator hose. Then the lower one. After changing the lower hose the car overheated and check engine light came on. 7 codes 121,442,734,733,171,325,441, came up. Help!

the evap finally reset after 672 miles. I am at loss here! I did all of the drives cycles and I only need that one to reset so I can finally get it smogged.

brake light came on while driving yesterday. no sound or blinking and brakes fine.

What do you suggest? Won't pass emissions due to readiness monitors.

car up on blocks. repaired many things from timing belt to fuel filter.While changing out the struts/the wheel hubs were moved all over. after assembly the car will not shift and the hubs turn freely, but together. not sure where to start. did i disengage the axel? is there a sensor? need more info?

I was happily driving and jamming one morning in the mile high city when I stopped for a red light signal. My car died and long story short the clutch master cylinder needed to be replaced, DONE!! Now she wont start, no sound, nada. Lights and stereo do come on, I just replaced the battery, cleaned up the corrosion and honestly checked only 4 fuses, then started crying... Help. Fuses to starter were not blown, got a jumpstart too. No luck. Cars been down for 2 months and i started her twice no problem... Please guide me I need to roll. Thanks. P.S. Slim help from opposite sex here,paper pushers... in girl code please lol.

the speedometer doesn't work the RPM gauge does not work attack does not work the temperature does not work

In last 3 years Iv had to get my clutch replaced 5times , clutch pedal gets stiff and then it starts having acceleration problems and high rpms I can shift into any gear no problem. Last 2 times I put a clutch in it only lasted a month then it seemed it burnt out .. I'm a frequent driver

Its not catillac conv. It'll start some x. Its 5 speed. Chk the button under clutch not that either

I had this car for two weeks it was driving good, after being on the highway it started to slow down. It went down to 30 mph and now only pushing ten. I noticed the fuel filter was busted so i changed it and still nothing. Had it check on the diagnostics machine nothing came up about thr tranny. So im really lost. I need help figuring out what it is so it can get fixed properly. Please help...
