car has just over 70,000 miles on it, just started with some slippage, but I add trans fluids, and it comes rite back out the bottom
the security light keeps beeping and blinking but my doors wont lock or unlock also my windows wont work yet my lights ect. got power to them. Does my new key need to be programed to my car?
Is there such a thing as a selector seal.Is it also true if they did not put OEM parts on the tune up it would cause it to run rough?I was also told there is no way to set the idle the brain does it.It was was checked for codes ect no problems.I also think they rigged the drop for the column so it would break on us.I went off on them.Told I was going to call the BAR and the BBB.Is there anything else I can do to get them to take care of this and do it correctly.The so called steering reconditioned column looks to small and they said they think they will have to adjust the linkage.I do not think so.
I have taken my car to meinekee,I know big mistake,only could do it on credit.It has been in the shop 5 times.I told them they needed to cange the nose end of the seal on the tran where the drive shaft goes in.Now they said they changed the shifter selector seal ,and my frind went to pick it up and the gas was empty.It was just next store.She went to lower the steering wheel and she said it was really hard.Then it dropped down,then the column came down and kept poping back up,wouldn't lock into place.Then the key would not turn to start.Go the tech sneaked over there and got it started.Now they said we needed a different column.So they put that in and we only had the main gears.No 1 and 2.Does not look like the right column,then the front end was way out of adjustment.I think thy messed it up and I took it back and told it won't work and they need to fix it right.I just keep getting the run around and i do not think they know what they are doing.
I can't find it where my repair manual says it should be.
THEN THE SERVICE STABILITY, ABS AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHTS COME ON. SHOULD I BE CONCERNED, OR CAN I JUST DRIVE IT AND LIVE WITH THYE LIGHTS. ANY IDEA'S WHAT MIGHT CAUSE THIS. HAVE HEARD SERVICE STABILITY LIGHT COMING ON IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS MODEL. THANK YOU, BIG JEFF!
I have been told that I can use the MagaFlow Universal that needs to be welded on and that there is no diff from the ones that are boled on....what do you think?
The one on the right side is so bad the whole car vibrates constantly.
i replaces spark plugs, air filter. put it on code tester, read no codes, but said mass air flow out of range, replaced mass air flow, but my car still dies when i am in gear in ideal, not when in park
Must I replace the entire assembly? If so, about how much does it cost. Thanks!

A couple months ago, my car started giving me an intermittent check engine light. It would be on for a little while, then turn off. I also had some rough idling when the car started. The CEL is no longer on while driving, but when I turn the key to the Accessory position, the light comes on and flashes 10 times, then stays solid.
More recently (2 weeks ago), my car wouldn't start. I had it jump started and when I got home I noticed that after I shut off the engine something kept turning on/off (which is why my battery drained). Mechanic told me he replaced a relay and smog pump. It worked great . . . for 2 weeks.
The past 2 days I hear what sounds like a fan below the engine running after I've turned the car off. I also smell something burnt.
Tonight, my car would not start (again). Battery appeared fine as all my interior lights worked and so did my power door locks, but when I turned the key I got nothing but flashing interior lights and clicking sounds. After the car got towed home, the battery was drained (again).
Any idea what's going on? Why is something still running when the engine is turned off and how do I fix it?
I have gotten estimates from 600. to 1000. I undersand the part runs anywhere from 50.-100. and the labor is the issue due to engine and or transmission being seperated.
