when my car starts it feels like is going to turn off,
looks like the power shots off.

Louder when the windows are down (LOL!) best heard on passenger side, heard most of the time but does go away occasionally, no changes from braking or turning. Seems to be coming from the rear. Any ideas?

It even makes a back fire within the engine not out of the exhaust. Sounds like a poof or sputter. It seems to be getting worse after three weeks. A year ago the catalytic converter showed a low emissions on the emissions test.

turn ingnition key, nothing happens.sometimes after several
attmeps the ignition key will turn engine and starts,had the
computer check it said the crankshaft position sensor was going
out,I replaced it still does thesame thing.I have taken it so
several mechanics,even electrical shop still can find what is
wrong.

i BOUGHT A USED 2011 FORD EXPEDITION WITH 2,000 MILES FROM AN OUT OF TOWN DEALERSHIP. I RECENTLY EXPERIENCED ENGINE STEAMING WITH BURNING SMELL AND THEN EVENTUALLY MAJOR EXHAUST SMOKE. FOUND OUT FORM DEALERSHIP IT HAS A FRONT PUMP SEAL MISSING (AND LEAK) AND AN EXPECTION COVER MISSING. THE SERICE CENTER IS PULLING APART THE ENTIRE ENGINE TO MAKE SURE NOTHING HAS BEEN EFFECTED. SHOULD I BE OVERLY CONCERNED? WILL THIS MOST LIKELY LEAD TO FUTURE PROBLEMS. I AM AFRAID I BOUGHT A "LEMON"

Help !!!!! Want to sell car but can't with ticking noise.

Drove 3 hours,then topped off tank to very top,parked car for two days,when started engine would crank slowly and the car only started after pumping gas pedal and almost turned off during this process,the more I pumped the gas pedal the more the car would recieve fuel to start,When finally started no problems afterward.Battery is 6 months old([posts clean and tight),horn and lights working before problem,5-30 oil synthetic.For two years now autostart with alarm car would not start on first try but with ignition key right away,original plugs and wires,How do I get this checked without being taken for an expensive ride by a mechanic,so many variables here.

I have a 1999 BMW 323i. I recently found out the reverse light on my passenger side is out. I replaced the bulb and it still would not come back on. I then, checked the fuse box and found the fuse for the reverse light is in good condition. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?

I'm trying to clean the fuel tank of my 1993 Audi 80, (renamed as Audi 90 in the U.S.).
I took out the pump, the pump holder cup with the sieve, fuel gauge ...but how do I get the sediment bowl out?
First of all, does it come out? Does it come apart somehow, because it's bigger than the hole/opening on the fuel tank?
What about the little switch-thing on its right side? What is it for?
Thank you.

I JUST BOUGHT A OLDS INTRIGUE 3.8L. IT HAD A BAD LOW COOLANT SENSOR WHICH I REPLACED. I ALSO REPLACED THE ENG .TEMP. SENDER , THERMOSTST & GASKET ,HOSES,& RADIATOR CAP. FLUSHED THE ENGINE &RADIATOR A REFILLED WITH FRESH DEXCOOL ANTIFREEZE, FOR THE WINTER. SHORTLY THEREAFTER WHILE DRIVING I NOTICED THE ENGINE WAS GETTING TOO WARM. I OPENED THE HOOD AND NOTICED THE COOLING FANS WERE NOT RUNNING. I HAD TO MAKE UP A JUMPER WIRE FROM THE BATTERY TO A FAN TO GET HOME.MY OBD SCANNER READS "P1651 CIRCUIT /OUTPUT DRIVER MODULE (QUAD DRIVER ) 'B' QUICKSET FAULT ( SATURN) 2. FAN 1 RELAY CONTROL CIRCUIT. IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS I HAVE CHECKED THE RELAYS FANS MOTORS ALL CONNECTORS AND WIRING WITH NO SUCESS .A CONTINUITY METER SHOWS THE DARK GREEN GRD.WIRE FROM RELAY #1 TO THE COMPUTER BLUE CONNECTOR PIN #5 AS PER WIRING DIAGRAM APPEARS TO BE GOOD. BUT FANS DO NOT WORK. IF I RUN A JUMPER FROM PIN #5 TO THE #1 RELAY WIRE , THE FANS WILL RUN CONSTANTLY. IS THE COMPUTER BAD? WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON. WHAT AM I MISSING? GEORGE W....
