I have 113,000 on the car and don't have problems with it. They also suggested I replace the right rear trailing arm plus at the same time so that I have only one alignment. I have not experienced driving problems and wonder if this is premautre?
friend said it was a bad sensor cause temp was ok. after three mo. now temp has started to fluctuate. new water pump?
When the engine is turned on the SRS light goes off but it comes back and stay on
what is the estimated cost? could this be the throttle body? Could it just be cleaned or will I have to replace it?
what to do?
When the car is'nt in any gears the noise stops. Car shifts great, runs smooth otherwise. However, the reverse gear is gone.
It starts like a champ when it has been setting. But if I try to restart shortly thereafter, I have to try and try. Only successful if I gas it too. Cleaned battery compartment and cables. Bought a new battery and still problem... Any clues? Thanks!

There is a rough idel as well as hesitation when accelerating around the 50 mph mark. Ive had the cat replaced, engine tune up, ignition coil replaced, and trnsmission service rendered and the problem persists. MPG has decreased to around 18.3 from 23 on the highway.
The air self leveling stopped working and I have checked the relay it's good. I checked the motor on the compressor it's good. I disconnected the sensor at the linkage, turned the key on, pushed up on the rod, waited for 10-15 seconds and more and nothing happened. I then took the sensor off the vehicle and proceeded to ohm test it. The natural position of the unit disconnected is up. I put a probe in the middle of the three pronged plug and put the other probe in the one end, shorting the two, and there is no reading until the arm of the sensor is at the extreme top. When I shorted the other end of the plug to the center plug, wire, the reading was to the extreme other end of the arm movement and like the first reading nothing until I get almost to the extreme point of the travel of the arm. Although I do get readings, one is---93.3 extreme top as travel goes down to less than a fraction of movement the numbers top out at 196.0. Reversing the probe on the end to the other end, leaving the middle probe where it is the readings start at about just a little over three quarters of travel, almost to the end, at 198.0 and goes down to the end of the travel to a reading of 105.0
Did I do it right? Is the gap of no readings between the travel normal or should there be a consistent and steady rise and decline throughout the full travel of the arm?
when it is slipping, I have to keep it in 2 nd up to 40 - 45 mph then shift it manually into od where it is ok. when slowing down, it is ok if it stays in drive, but if it shifts down into 2 nd it starts slipping. it does this for about a week or so( 100 mi). Then I will start it and it will shift normally for about a week or so. It also seems to have an extra shift between 2 nd and drive (feels like it is a 5 speed automatic)
I'm thinking maybe a sensor is bad (?)
I had it back flushed but did not see any difference. Fluid is about 1/4 inch above the full line on the dipstick when hot.
Outside Temp does not matter nor does trans temp.
Thanks in advance for your help!
where is the idle speed control located
