have installed new pvc valve, plugs, wires, cap and rotor. fuel pump is approx. 2 years old. have aftermarket k&n type air filter

I go through a bit of both relatively often, but like I said, no smell at all, no observable leaks anywhere.

Power lock and keys in ignition chime are now working.

..can i still have recall work done for free from recalls from years ago?

the heat blend door works. the fan speeds work. I am looking to get air once again from any vent i put the selector knob to..no dual air controls...just a three knob manual in a 1999 jeep grand cherokee.

I am a disabled mom of 3 and prior to being disabled 10 yrs ago I was a purser for Northwest Airlines( I am telling u this because my car has low mileage and just hit 70,000 last week)
About 1 1/2 months ago I had my oil changed and as I was leaving the building my "check engine soon" light turned on. I had not even turned around in the parking lot. I went straight back to the office and the man, whom I assumed was the manager mumbled something about it being because it had been so cold and the person who had been working on my car had done a certain check on it and had not turned it off/reset it,or whatever she was suppose to have done.
So about a week ago it came back on. Now I am not a bubble headed blonde, pardon the expression for the blondes out there! No offense! But I don't just watch the, what we call "dummy, or idiot lights". But When it can at least tell me that nothing is overheating an the fluid is ok, I am not going to panic and sell my first born to have a diagnostics run on it when I don't have the money.
So a friend,here's the kicker, came down from Alaska, and said he had the same thing happen. And HIS friend told him sometimes the sensor is just dirty.
So he went out to look at it, said he cleaned it. Started it up, said it didn't show up anymore. But..... Now my time clock that showed the amount of time that was spent in the car has been erased, and does not run, plus my gas marker that tells how much fuel u have went to full, and I only had a 1/4 of a tank. So now everytime I fill up my car it says I have like 380 miles till empty, when normally it would only have been about 238.
Any suggestions? I really can't afford a diagnostics test, and I am pretty broke most of the time and it really helps to know how much gas I really have so I can keep track of it. Sorry for lengthy message, but figured u might need to know all of story.
Would appreciate any thoughts!
Thanks,
DJ

I was driving my car and it just killed after getting it to the house I could see water leaking out from underneath the car the car wont crank,So I just recently had a mechanic to look at it he says its the engine.I dont know much of anything about cars so my question is how can I be sure that its really my engine could you determine that even without the car cranked?

The car has 150,000 miles on it. the noise is there all the time when the car is moving, and all the way until stopped.

replaced hydro boost and master cylinder , plus all of the brakes , calipers and front hose's/lines.

took the motor out already

in park or neutral the engine runs just fine

my interior trunk open release button not working, the interior automatic doors, lock button not working, my key folb works but the locks not working. I notice a 20amp fuse were blown, I replaced it, it started working for moment, and then it STOP working again, the fuse not blown What gives, what could this be? strange, but not surprise, it's a mercedes benz!

This is not working the brake makes a poping noise and not shift from park. I have a key that goes into a hole that lets me shift the gears. Trying to find out what needs to be done to fix this probles.

my car sat for about 6 months and i have started it about once in every two week but it ran out of gas , i had a hard time getting it going but did with the help of o can of engine starter (eather), but now after it starts and after a short time the temp gage will dance back and forth from hot to cold and after a bit more the light will com on and stay on ,but the car is not overheating

is there a proportioning valve after the anti lock module because we changed that part and also the rear brakes last forever and the fronts wear out every 5 months we also put new calipers on the rear and all new brake hoses
