I dont not where the coolant goes cause is no liking visible

Car will start using starter fluid and will continuously start throughout the day. BUT will not start after sitting for a long period of time...8 or more hours.

Because of the pass lock safety feature I replaced my fuel pump twice. I finally found out what was happening but can't figure out how to disconnect the problem

Has good battery.

battery is good.

The light is stuck on the dashboard and will not turn off

My check engine light has been on and about 60% of the time it won't start the first few times. The radio and lights come on but the engine won't turn over. I have replaced the gas cap. I have 170,000 miles. My gas mileage is Pretty low. I have a new battery also.

No heat until temp gauge goes just past °200

My right rear wheel won't move at all when I either put my car in reverse or in drive. I tried using WD 40 on the brake cable connecting to the tire and it still wont move.

my 2002 pontiac grand am had the timing chain break and mechanic says tha t valves will need to be replaced and that its a common occurence wh en timing chain snaps.

I replaced my sash and clips for my powered window because they broke and I got the job done but then I noticed one side was higher then the other.I dont get it so what can I do to fix this problem ?

the stereo was removed then put back in and now the car wont start.

I have had to replace my throttle sensor 4 times in the past year, I took it to the dealer and the only code showing is the throttle sensor. What could keep making this go bad? When I put the new one on my car drives fine for like 3 months, I'm puzzled on why this keeps happening. Can anyone answer this question for me? Also I'm not buying the sensor over and over, it has a lifetime warrenty on it. I also cleaned the throttle body this past weekend, and it cleaned up very nicely.

I have read where some have literally screwed the dash down. I don't know what's under it, I'm afraid I will damage something else. My daughter is going into the Air Force and she's always asking "Mom, can you fix my car?"
:( Someone please advise me. Thank you.

About a week ago I stopped to grab my mail on the way home, was only out of the car for about a minute and when I got back in it would not start, no cranking, nothing. I've had all of the common problems in the past so I am usually pretty good at figuring it out on my own, but I had the ECU replaced about 2 years ago and haven't had the security feature problem, or really anything electrical for that matter since. The security light is not blinking or showing, so its not that. I finally disconnected the battery and let it sit for about 6 hours, plugged it in and still nothing. I disconnected again and left it overnight, the next morning I plugged the battery and it and started right up. I drove it 3 days, and then it did it again. I unplugged the battery again overnight, started up the next day and worked until yesterday. I left yesterday morning and it started fine, parked it for about 2 hours and came out and it wouldn't start. I left the battery unplugged overnight and it still won't start. I had the battery tested today, I checked all of the Relays and Fuses, checked the connection to battery. I'm going to have someone come take the starter off and check that, but if it's not the starter I'm at a loss. I've been down this road before and dropped $800-$1000 just on diagnostics, so I do not want to do that. Hoping someone is familiar with these sensitive Grand Am electrical systems might have some advice.
