The control arms have been replaced
ok my raditor was leaking so i replaced it my temper needle was lightly before the half mark at that point but the engine seem pretty hot when i lifted the hood after driving for about 15 minutes ,unfortually the new raditor was defective and the needle is still at the same place but the engine feel hot when i put my hand over the engine when i get home after a 15 mintue drive. Is this normal for the van engine to feel heat coming from it after you park it, can my themostat be broke even if it read normal?
Already checked the fuses under hood and under steering column.
no rattling while driving normal speeds. rattling greatly reduced when i shift into neutral while stopped at traffic light. i have been driving with the rattling for months. just recently started having occasional difficulty shifting into reverse ( auto trans). feels stuck or being forced. brake warning light has also been on for about six mos.
my van will run for a while then act like it is not getting gas and die. If you wait about 5-10 min it will start back up. Can not find a gas filter other than the one in the tank. Need ideas about repairing it please.

I hardly drive the Volvo, maybe one month out of the year. Sitting in my garage the whole time. Any suggestion how to maintain my car while sitting in my garage for long period of time?

i did not hit anything to cause any problems, have replaced brakes and keep it aligned, about to replace tie rod ends as front drivers is loose. husband thinks it is cause i have drum brakes, but did not do this the first 6 years i owned, bought new.
When I engage the clutch in just about all the gears there is a clicking noise. I hear just about two clicks. I say engine/transmission but I am sure it is coming from the transmission. It has done it before and then stops but now it started again. Could weather have something to do with it? because I've noticed it happens when there is a change in weather. I could really use a great answer! Very detailed answer. I probably won't take your advice if you just say "clutch". So please give me some information. I would be very thankful! If you have any questions about the problem/car just let me know.
