Cassette tape player makes a sgueaking noise when tape is inserted
hello, I have a road trip coming up in a few weeks and I called my local auto repair guy and set an appointment but I'm just wondering about issues and price.
Main problems: Cruise Control is not working - the light won't come on nor will the buttons work. Speedometer is usually off by 5 miles (so if it says 35, you're really going 30 mph). My check engine light is constantly on. So it sounds like an average ABS problem I'm just wondering what the price will be.
gas pedal sticks when the car first starts - I've been told this is for defense but I doubt that. how much would it cost to fix this?
Basic Oil Change is needed.
Safety Check is needed apperantly (because it is over 155k miles)
I'm guesstimating that the cost of getting my car fixed will be close to $450?
I'm sure I'm off because I've heard ABS replacements can be $500 alone.
thank you so much for your help.
Seems to lose all power when going up even small hills. Doesn't happen when engine is cool, only at normal operating temps. Tranny is downshifting. I have replaced coil, cap/rotor, contril module. Any suggestions?
replaced switch, and modual, tested for power and ground at switch no power or ground to switch. any one know of where to go next
I found Hydrocarbon in my water reservoir,
dealer said there is no compression in cyl 3, and two others have low compression,dealer told me to replace engine
is it true?
Antifreeze leaking from under back of engine.Pressure test diagnosed blown intake manifold gaskets. Need cheapest estimate for parts and labor? Local repair shop quoted me $658.
Engine was running fine then just stopped. No warning, no stutter, just stopped. No spark at plugs. Is it the coil? Do I have to replace my distributor?
developed this condition seems like over time. had the trans solenoid pack changed because it was leaking, didn't help but maybe fells more harsh @ times? leak stopped. when it fells harsh 1-2 shift,(shudder) or 3-2 down shift which is actually an idle undershoot and bump feel. Point is I never remember feeling the veh shift @ all,it was always really smooth. I thougt maybe this is a TPS issue but just don't know? There are No Codes,No Check Engine light and No Trans computer updates or Flashes.
Its hanging on the right side but my left side just needs to be welded on.
Does anyone at GM know what is wrong when the stability/traction control service lights come on and then go off with a 2008 Chevy Equinox? It apprears that no one is prepared to give a specific answer. My car does it when the roadconditions change, ie when it first starts snowing or raining and then it goes out again. Is the ECU saying that it is aware ofthe changing conditions and has made allowances or has it just freaked out when it realises that it may have to do some work? I like the car, however the elctronic issues concern me? I agree with the master tech's comments about good quality and frequent servicing. I am suprisedthat no one on here has mentioned the intake manifold and cooling issues more. My local engine shop sells reconditioned intake manifolds for this model engine and has available an improved gasket. He says that most of his customers get to 60,000 miles and them the dexcool starts leaking. They also suggest going to the "green" prestone coolant, as it is not prone for breaking down. Changing the headlight bulb for the first time can be a challenge, however it is easily done. However why and where is there condensation leaking into the headlight assemblies and can this be prevented. I have used a hair drierto get ridof it, but it does come back. In the next few months I intend changing the serpentine belt, tensioner pulleys, water pump and intake manifold gasket as my car is getting up to 85,000 miles. Any comments about doing this work would be appreciated. Thanks Harry
