My car has been hesitating when I hit the excelerater from a stop. The check engine light just came on so I had the diagnostics run. There were 9 problems, but mainly that all four cyl's had a vacuum leak on the engine. What is the fix to this and how much can I expect to spend? The trouble shooting codes were P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0171 and P0507.

This noise was discovered when I was having the tires checked. There is a vibration at speeds over 35 mph. Slight, like you are travelling on a rough road. And where could I find estimates on the average cost to replace a differential?

I bought a 1996 Toyota Avalon XLS less than 5 months ago and have been having problems ever since. The first issue was the fact that I had to replace my Knock sensors. A few weeks later, white smoke came from my car when I started it up and the mechanic said that the engine was getting too my oil, by which time I was adding 2 qts per week my oil light stayed on.

Now my latest issue is that my car simply shut off in the middle of driving and when I attempted to start it up, the engine began to knock which was loud.

Now my question is should I take the 1500 dollars the dealership is offering me and accept my losses or refurbish the engine to avoid future issues with a new headache car?

My car is making a very loud popping noise! I just had the power steering recall fixed two weeks ago. The car jerks and pops no matter what kind of road you are driving on!! Was told that the steering colum needs replacing! Mechanic said that the cars is bad about going out! But not definite thats the problem! The racket sounds as if the whole front end is going to fall out from under the car!! And it only has 108,000 miles on it!! And has been girl owned and never been driven rough at all!!!

You will be driving down the road and the car just randomly shuts off! OR when pulling out from a stop the car just dies!! It always starts back up but that is so dangerous!! And it makes a crazy noise like the starter is) and your in a hurry to keep from getting hit at a redlight or something!! It stalls a lot!! I don't know what is wrong with the car it idels up and down going down the road and at a sitting still position!! And the air constantly is going from hot to cold! That is crazy too! It does not work worth a crap!!

I just had the batterys replaced last week. And if you lock the doors inside the car you can't just stick the key in the lockc to unlock them because it sets off the car alarm!! So what do i do to fix the remote! And $75 is a lot of money for something that is not gonna fix the problem! My remote opens the trunk just fine so?

I had a guy come out to replace my headliner and he couldn't get the visors out without breaking them. How do you get them out? I guess it's a new issue for the Buicks. I'll risk taking them out myself. But I would like to try without breaking them. Are they a press fit or snap in or what?
I was also told they may break the hard liner on top because it was glued in. I don't want to end up with a mess.

This brace is made of composite material and is about 5inches long by an ~inch wide and has a small bolt going through top and side. I know it is part of the headlight assembly and do not want to pay $450 for a brand new one (part only). What is best way to epoxy this thing and with what? Have extended warranty but doubt if it is covered.

This only happens once the brakes are hot. Have put two sets of rotors on, re-machined them, several sets of pads, semi metallic and ceramic and replaced a caliper (reman). If I gently apply it doesn't make a sound. But when I apply the brakes normally it happens. Almost sounds like a over stretched spring noise, if that makes sense. Not sure where to go from here. Driving me nuts....

i wrote to you before and i am taking your advise to have my transmission oil leak diagnosed.I sometimes feel a slight slip in the transmission also,do you think if i get the oil leak fixed it will stop? or do you think it wise to pull down a 1993 escort transmission? will it be costly? i really cant affort another vehicle now. please help.

Is this a costly fix?

Has new plugs, wires, distributor cap, ignition coil and rotor button.
