When going from dark to bright light, instrument panel looks black for an uncomfortably long time.

My Nephew backed up into my Dakota at about 20 miles per hour. It seemed ok to drive, but then it overheated on freeway, and it won't run. The mechanic where it was towed to said it is pretty well shot. Not just a head gasket. f Piston went through the block. What should this cost or should I just junk the car?

It was sitting for six months, we replaced the battery and it fired right up, it seems to purr and drive good until it just shuts off. It did it before it was sitting for six months and does it still.
Could there be something in the fuel tank clogging, or the fuel relay be broken? When i try to start it again after it shuts off it wont only trys to start.

I just had both replaced 14,000 miles ago, now the water pump is leaking. Also leaking out of 1 head. Never overheated. Should I use all Subaru parts to replace water pump and head gaskets, etc.?What about new head bolts?


i plug in the code reader to the dlc connector then they start working how do i solve this

Our van will go into all gears besides third gear. We can drive it still just going slow does not seem like the transmission is gone completely but how and what would we fix to get it going again ?

airbags were disabled when i purchased this car and can't figure out where they were disconnected.

when driving over uneven road surfaces like reair and patchd up roads, pot holes, ramps The steering wheel may jerk to either the left or right and car veers either to left or right.

The steering whell may not return to central position so more effort is needed to control steering wheel and keep vehicle positioned properly in driving lane.

A mechanic checked it for me and said it is telling him it is a missfire problem. I notice also, that the engine compartment is very hot - the hood is hot to the touch. The temp gauge is at the halfway mark

The top right corner of the radiator (driver side)looked like where it was leaking from. A small leak mark ground indicated this. I replaced the threaded connector where o rings are located. Now it's leaking from the passenger side and the water mark is much bigger. What can it be?

or .3 miles. It will restart and then run fine until the next fill up. The van has 119,000 miles on it and has done this since I bought it with 48,000 miles. This happens about 80% of the time.

When I have the heat on in my car it blows fine when I'm driving, but when I come to a stop (ex: stop light, stop sign, etc.) it blows out dramatically cooler. Any suggestions what the reasoning could be? I have checked all of my vehicle's fluids and everything is at normal levels. Thanks for the help ahead of time!
