When I'm backing out of driveway, my car seems to make a clicking noise like when the wheels make a complete rotation, there is a clicking sound at that point. It only happens in reverse, not in drive. I think it comes from the right front side but an not sure since I have the driver side window open while others are closed. The noise may be coming from somewhere else but it does sound like the front right side. Thank you.
I was driving my car on the higway and the battery light came on. when I got home it would not crank back up beccause the belt had popped. I replaced the belt and it still won't crank. I just here a clicking noise
a light comes on on the dash that says ETC off, and just recently another light came on that says low trac. the etc off light comes on and stays for a day or so, goes out then comes back on. low trac just started today.
I just got a new battery 2 weeks ago.
I went to start my car and it wont do anything, No noise, but there is no clicking. It wont start...Does that sound like a Starter? or Alternator?
My 98 Grand Am 2.5 SE is bogging on acceleration like it's starving for fuel. It's been running strong till now. 175K on the odo and we try to keep the little car up. I've changed fuel filter, found a line broken to the canister and repaired, installed new fuel cap. And was told to unplug the soleniod that works with the canister.
Hope some one can help out

Just got this car, after 3 hours fuel pump went out. Got that replaced, but now it idles rough, and has issues with accelration. The codes show the EGR. Can anyone tell me where to locate the valve and how to clean it? Thanks
My car has a tendency to rev up on it's own..most of the time right after I've filled up the tank, or when I'm low on gas. Sometimes it stalls the car completely, but most of the time I put it in gear immediately so it doesn't stall..After I got the car I had the problem, and some sort of sensor was cleaned..but than a few weeks later it did it again..what could this possibly be, and how expensive might it be?
