transmission wont shift
Only when it sits in the sun all day. If it is shaded or in my garage it doesn't do it. I start out in drive and within seconds it starts shifting to 5, 3, 1 4.
Just had my brakes done due to a recall. Today I heard an explosion in the front passenger side with smoke and oil leak. Then ABC workshop light came on.
Two months ago slow leak of fluid began to drip on the passenger side above the passenger window.
I had the roof open when it started raining.I immediately pull to the curb to close the roof with in a few minutes.4 days later when i turned on the ac nothing came on.I took it to the shop and they said they ouldn't reprogram the unit. I was told that there was water damage done to the panel.
the other instrument functions were available. I also noticed a knocking noise coming from under the engine, it sounds almost like a woodpecker
The vacuum noise is quiet and last for maybe 2min, but I'm concerned, please help? Thanks
I was told my two catalytic converters were inefficient and needed replaced. I was quoted $1885. Is this normal? Will it hurt my car to drive it until I can get them replaced? i.e., burn out sensors or damage transmission? My engine light came on two days after I ran out of fuel and IMAP put a gallon of regular in my tank. I drove approx 6 miles to the nearest station to fill up .. could this have caused the code?
How much does it cost annually on average to maintain an 05 SL500 ?
