TEST 17. before was LOCK: OFF...now LOCK: ON. how to make it back? i mean to position LOCK:OFF position, because my car is not starting...:(

The price was 946.00 that included the water pump, belt, tension pulley and thermostat. I thought this was high but I was in a jam and told them to repair it. After the repair I was told I had a crack in my block and I should watch it. When I picked the car up I noticed fluid on the ground and question it. I was told it was residual from the repair yet they ran it for an hour I was told. I drove the car less than 400 yards and it overheated. I brought it back and they told me that it probably had an air lock but in the end the block was leaking. Could they have cracked the block some how? If there was a crack when I brought it in, the crack is on the radiator side, a diagnostic should have shown fluid toward the front of the car and not at the water pump or both. They showed me the crack after the fact and it was clean. This is a re-manufactured engine and is still on warranty so they called the company and they were told to fix it. I was there when they talked with the company and they said I could get a rental since this will be the third engine from this company, (Jasper Engines). They sent the engine it was installed now Jasper will not pay the labor or the rental untill they see the block. Meanwhile I have to fork over 2,000 and change for the labor, fluids, and gaskets. This is on top of 900 and change for the water pumps original bill. Jasper's will pay 1,700. Total for me 300 plus the 900 for the water pump. Is Modern Tire on the up and up with these prices. I haven't picked the car up yet please send advise. There is more to this story if more info is needed. For instance why was the crack in the block so clean. There was no dirt nor a hint of fluid yet after I paid the money there was fluid at the crack.

at the dealer say is because i
installed an after market alarm do you think it is the reason
of the failure ? . some times it works . when i turn on the ignition it jumps a little thankyou

I looked at the manual but I don't get it.

Any idea how long the batteries should last and what the warranty is?

vehicle has 113,000 miles. I started smelling gas after filling the tank. it would go away after about 30 miles. Fueled it yesterday, 20 gallons, and at the pump i had a puddle after the pump stopped at the fuel station. Got home nd it continued to leak after killing the engine. it leaked about 2 cups of fuel and stopped. fuel guage also jumps around after starting. Any help would be amazing. thanks.

fluid in master cynclder

just got rotors and brakes put on and still makes a grinding noise.when press on gas it makes a clicking noise from engine

the parts store can only pull up a tension pully and they look the same. are they interchangeable or are they different.
the idler pully is wore out and is making this high pitch screaming sound while its running and the faster you go the louder it gets

The car is always low on coolant and we never see any signs of it on the ground ??? We've had it into the dealer to get it checked, They said they couldn't find anything, It's still doing the same thing. What are they doing wrong? what should I look for?


I had the car towed to another nearby mechanic and the original quote multiplied 5x. they said entire battery cable harness needs to be replaced, not just the + cable. Does this sound reasonable?

the system bleed, but it still running at hi idle the temperature gauge goes alittle pass half but not hot.

I took it in and was told it needs a new module and it will cost $585.00. Is this right?

I have a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. When I start the car about 4/5 times the power steering doe snot work for about 30 seconds to a minute, and then it comes back fine. The driver's fasten seatbelt light also comes on and stays on for a minute or 2 after the seatbelt is fastened. Also, several times the battery light stays on, although it usually goes away when the power steering comes back. This has happened about 6 times. Any idea what's wrong?

P0613 code. Took car to transmission shop. They replaced the TCM with an after market unit. Took a week to get and had to be programmed by Chrysler. Failed the next morning and went back into limp in mode and displayed P0613 code again. Repair shop replaced TCM with Chrysler OEM part and had them program it again. Failed 5 hours later. Same P0613 code. Back in the shop at Chrysler. I can turn off power and it resets after about 2-3 shutdowns. Transmission shifts smoothly after reset. Pulling my hair out!!!!!!
