In summer at temps above 75 the a/c on drivers side cools at stops and warms after take off. Also in tunnels or under passes it cools until you drive back into sunlight. Passenger side is fine. Temp setting doesn't matter.
I push on the gas petal and i swear i could push the car faster then it goes and in a 1/4 mile it would normally get up to 60 less then halfway through a 1/4 mile and now i am lucky to 45 now in a 1/4 mile. (The 1/4 mile is from my diveway to the stop sign at the end of my road.) Then one day went to auto zone to get a cooling fan relay (Just the high fan) put the new one in and that is when it started not getting up and going) But once you get up to speed, well basically once your in 3rd gear or higher, no poblems, i can step on the gas and it gets up and goes like it should runs beautiful, but come to a stop and it take for ever to get up to speed. Before it had overheating issues because we didn't know it at the time that the cooling fans didn't work and it was super hot this past summer and there is a small crack in the radiator. Could it have something to do with the vacuum system, ive checked the lines and they are good, and connected they are only about 6 months old. (It is the 3.8Litter V6 and the tranny was rebuilt about a year ago because it was slipping. ) It would be awesome if you could answer this question. Thank you

the whole alignment link or a sway kit. Bar is not broke, but the ball joint that holds the arm to the tire is out.
I cracked my oil pan in a recent accident and need to try and see if i can replace it. thanks
We checked with several different OBD-II readers and one dealer told me it may be an ignition module. The car still starts and runs but has a knock like a diesel engine. It used to start up immediately now it takes about 5-10 seconds to start. It has no misfire it runs smooth other than what I have stated.
My interior lights just stopped working .checked all the fuses are good.Dashboard lights work.Lights on inside around mirrors,around doors will not come on.What should I do next?Please help me!
If there is one, what's the best way to get to it?
muffler is blowing out heavy "white" smoke.
the clutch does not return when you apply pressure to shift gears.
I need disassembling instruction, and the type of motor to buy ( the Pepboys tells me there are two types.)
i have no third row, but it looks like there could be one as there is a compartment or space where one would go. was told by boyfriend that i could install one if i get the parts. wondering if this is true or not?
