I already have to to get a head gasket job done. the garage never notice why I kept losing antifreeze, until one they I was checking car out and noticed my fans were not kicking on. I bought fan relay and there you go they went on but only lastet a week. I notice they never shut off so I think I should of put a fan module realay to. know I cant get them to go on I brought it to my garage and he charged me 30 bucks to line it up with chalk and he said the chalk line moved so they were working but they engine gets hot and the antifreeze slowly comes out of resevior. I am think to hook up fan to battery and add a switch to turn on and off. would that do any damage. because it works if I hook up to battery. any help would be great.any

i only bought the car about 5 months ago i had to replace the front driver side wheel bearing and thay told me everything is all good but my abs light and track off light is on and now my service vehical soon light is on what can i do to get them to turn off...i have looked it up in the book and i still cant get the lights to go off if u can help me out or tell me some way to get them lights off that would be great....well thanks and hope to here back.....

car had to much water in the anti freeze. it overheated and now antifreeze is blowing out of the tail pipe.

usually clicks one time then everything in the car is dead. after a few tries the car will start.

Typically when car is shut off, the head/tail lights will stay on for a short period of time. Yesterday, they decided to stay on no matter what. I flashed a flash light into the photo sensor and after a few seconds they shut off. Later that day, the same thing happened. I pulled the AUTO HDLPC and AUTO PRK relays from under the hood and now they seem to work as they should, but i have no tail lights. What seems more likely, the sensor being bad or one of the relays?


My 2004 Pontiac Grand AM GT has a P0420 code plus change oil light on. The Oil light came on first, and a day later, the check engine light came on. I checked the code and it was P0420 code, which is a catalyst efficiency low-bank which could deal with a bad catalytic converter or an engine misfire, large vacuum leak, or engine oil leakage into exhaust value guide. It does smell like burning oil when I open the hood. The oil was changed in the last month. What should I do? Has anyone had this problem before?

Car died, was told there's a chance valves are bent also and that won't be obvious until chain is replaced. Is this accurate information?

I have no other keys. Cannot find them. Key is not a computer chip.

When i push it it does not make a sound at all

i was driving and the vehicle lost power and wouldnt accelerate then the power steering went out i pulled over and turned it off now it wont even start

not much space and was wondering if i have to take out the aie filter unit

Checked fuses and auto manual. NO Blown fuses. Yet can not access power to these two devices

Could being out of gas have hurt it?

Could any one give me any pointers on where to start at to figure out why this happened??

A few things that was happening was:
The air conditioner would suddenly go hot then blow out cold air at any given time.
Sometime the belt would squeal upon start up but would quiet down when car warms up.
