I bought the car and the battery is dead in the trunk. I can't open the trunk, It's electric. The dealer said I should be able to jump it under the hood. It's supposed to be on the drivers side...just flip up the plastic and hook the positive...I can't find it.

Have replaced actuator on transfer case, front axle actuator, and the switch on the dash. The front axle breather was against the plug under the hood. Cleaned the grease off and everything worked and went off. Now it all is back on.

Do I need any special tools.

My A/C broke on a drive up CA's Central Valley in the height of this last summer. I'm on a budget and figured I could just do without A/C. About 2 months ago the engine began to make these pinging sounds, like a bunch of marbles bouncing off each other in the engine bay. It's been progressively getting worse and worse—the sound is louder and occurs with more frequency. There is no check engine light, however. From opening up the hood it looks like the A/C unit is making the belt stick on the front of the engine. Is this a problem? Am I going to be paying for a larger repair if I allow this to continue?

I did a filter change but it made no difference and it still wont go over 30 mph im thinking shift solenoid. Please help.

I need to get to the fuel gage bulb to replace it on my 2001 Sebring LXI convertible.

I replaced it with a new battery, did an engine tune up and oil change and the problems started....before this my car was running perfectly.
I took it to the dealership and I was informed that my engine failed the compression test. They also found out that the previous mechanic who did my engine tune up used different brands of spark plugs and they did not look like new. Now they want me to just kiss my car good bye. I am devasted...Please help with any advice.
