It started with this clicking noise when I shift and then really hard to put in gear. We kept topping off master cylinder with fluid and it worked for awhile but Friday it just wouldn't move.

The problem with the ignition key not being released was reported to GM via my dealership last summer (2010) I am yet to get a response as to how to fix the problem. The lock up happens on a regular basis and I have to go thru the motion of moving the gear lever from Park to Drive and back to Park several times before it kicks in an releases the key. I am concerned that one of these days it will NOT release the key and I will have to leave the key in the vehicle. The solenoid at the staring column does not appear to be the problem. I suspect the problem is in the gear lever housing. How can I get this housing off so I can check for potential problem?

It has a small leak in it

I have 180,000 on 2004 taurus and want to check fuel pump press

I have my car serviced at the Lexus dealership here in Charleston, SC. About 1 year ago I noticed a fine hairline crack from the passenger side air vent. I happened to have my car brought in for service around the same time and pointed it out to the service manager. He said they couldn't do anything but would call "Corporate" to see if they would cover the cost of the part... they called me about 1 day later and "offered" a 25% discount but I would have to pay for labor... Total price for part was $1500 and labor another $1000... the 25% part discount was like a slap in the face... I certainly expected more from Lexus!!! We have been loyal Lexus owners (5 of them) but this will be the last, too bad because they run great! they just fall apart cosmetically. The cracks are now covering the whole dash... I stopped counting after 18 and the one over the airbag is really deep.... I sure hope it won't disrupt the efficiency .... oh what a legal mess that would be for Lexus!!!!! If anyone in Chs, SC has any advise please let me know. Thx

I replaced the tension pulley,idler pulley and the belt. When it rains the belt slips off. I was told there is a splash guard or a sheild that cover the belt from rain.

are ok. And where (exactly ) are the relays located?

I have manual transmission, there is a times it starts no problem but sometimes it wont start. I have all the lights and electical power on dash but it wont crank the starter motor to start the engine, it can push start no problem. I am tired pushing to start the truck everytime. Please help.

was driving and the cable from the battery was resting against the belt pully. it sparked and the engine immediately shut down. other electrical seem to work (lights are bright, horn works etc). it is getting a spark at plug wires. can hear the fuel pump engage, have even primed it with gas but it still won't start. changed 2 relays on fire wall (had burn marks) and replaced the ignition coil, still won't start. it appears to not be getting fuel or spark to the engine. since it was primed would that rule out it's not getting fuel? is there other relays that i should check? any suggestions?
tried a jump, it cranks but just won't turn over and run. someone said it's the fuel injectors (do they have a relay i can check?) since the pump appears to be pumping. could the injection system been blown from the spark? could it be the fuel pressure? would that prevent it from starting? any ideal would be appreciated. thanks

The engin shut down due to a clogged cataylic converter. Replaced it but still will not start

Noticed this week that my engine temperature was running higher than normal and then all of a sudden it was in the red. Let it cool back down for a few hours drove it and the temp rose back up to just below the red. I don't see any signs of leaks. I turned it back on and let it run, the fans don't appear to be running. Not sure if that is the problem or water pump or thermostat. Any help would be useful, Thanks.

need pic layout or blow by blow pics would be helpfull or schematic
