Battery top condition, alternator new, fuel pump new and working properly, spark plugs new. I bought a heater for the oil pan and that didnt work. I think it might be another electronic problem? If it is above 10F it starts and runs great.?

it occurs about every other day for the last week it comes on for hours and then some times for only 15-30 min what could it be?

light flashes fast there is also a clicking noise from fuse box area. when i giggle or disconect the neg battery cable and reconnect it will start and run for a bit. im thinking the battery cable or the pcm relay. any suggestions

Over two weeks ago my XC90 with 2500 miles experienced electrical system failure. Dash went black, no turn signals, RPM and MPH flatlined to zero, no air/heat controls, and no window usage capability.

Car was taken to German dealership (I'm an American living in Germany). They had car two weeks and said they replaced the CEM and updated software. So I get in the car and the radio automatically syncs to my phone Bluetooth and starts playing music and then I checked and my station presets are still there. This is a bit fishy to me. If they replaced CEM, wouldn't the radio need to be reset with my preferences? My seat memory also worked to my settings without me having to reset. I am by no means an auto technician, but I would think I would have to reset my preferences on some of these things just like if the electricity in a house went out and I had to reset clocks, microwaves, etc. Any advice/feedback? Thank you!

i want just a little more boost

If just stopped while I was driving even though I had timing belt replaced 2 years ago. Mechanic says it will be $2500 to fix it. Will the fix be worth the money? And how can they say how much it will be until they get into it? Help?

My 20,000 mi. service check light just came on. My tire guy told me that I needed new back brakes and that the rotors always have to be replaced with the pads on my car. I just took the car to Mercedes for the check light and they tell me that my front brake pads need to be replaced, but not the rotors. Who should I believe?

about a hour later we went back and i could turn the truck back on but still had the check oil pressure gauge on. could it just be because it was -15 with the wind chill and oil was to thick or you think it can be the oil pressure switch
thanks

I GET 18 TO 19 MPG RIGHT NOW..I DO ALOTT OF HWY DRIVING LIKE 750 A WEEK AND I NEED ALL THE MILEAGE I CAN GTE

The other day I was getting on the expressway and as I hit the gas to accelerate the engine hesitated and only accelerated at a very slow rate...if I gave it too much gas it began to shake. The check engine light came on and has been on ever since. The engine has the same issue while idling at traffic lights..I put the car in park at stop lights in fear that the shaking will lead to a stall out. It seemed a couple of times the engine "caught" really quick and would accelerate at a normal speed but then returned to the shaking/hesitating. I took it to AutoZone for the free diagnostic hookup and they said my vehicle needed a tune up. I replaced the spark plugs and the problem still exists. Also if it helps, the vehicle doesn't shake while in neutral and I give it some gas. Only while in gear? Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

would you please tell me what is going on with my car

OSTAT WAS chnged day before guessing pump went out . i didnt know had blown till i had drove awhile and made a turn. ran all water out still starts and runs with help from gas. valve cover gasket or head both or new motor

ok so my fiancee and I thawed out the lines using space heaters and a tarp and then a whole lot of brownish red fluid came gushing out from somewhere under the car, what could the problem be?

I live in South Africa and have a CRV 2 Litre, model 2007, 6 speed gearbox.

I had repairs done to improve my emissions, and now the Evap. monitor will not run to allow a retest. We have tried everything to complete a drive cycle, including parking the vehicle in a heated garage overnight. What do we do now?
