I can not remove the harmonic balancer.

Was just told by dealer they are cracked. How long should they last. Never had this problem on any other car, and another customer was told at the same time his car needed new motor mounts.

Where is it located on a 2000 ford contour?

I took my car in to check out the engine check light which is on. They said it needs a new computer module. After talk to a freind of mine he stated that it is usually a faulty wire. How long should it take for a machnic to go thru and check out the wiring for the computer and what should the charge to replace it.

my mechanic has reset lights but on test drive lights appear again along with power reduction, believes it is a short...suggestions???

I just redid my front end and its been making a clicking sound ever since only when im rolling, sounds kinda like one of those Chinese spinning rattlers, it has the manual locking hubs, and im not sure whrere its coming from cause it only happens when im going 15mph+,

Any ideas

or at a redlight but started right up. also, my service engine light just came on. I think this may be related to the fill up i got the night before and i basically over did it (don't know what I was thinking about). I probably lost a half tank of fuel on ground, etc. also it could have been bad gas don't know. However, i don't think the car stopping is related to the fuel issue. just had a tune up and oil change and radiator flush. cas barely has little over 100k miles on it.

someone told me I could clean the carbon out of my intake manifold and it would improve my gas mileage is this true ?? and if so could you direct me to a pic and details of how to do this if possible ??

i changed my water pump and when i was installing a bolt broke i had to drill the bolt out in the engine block now my car is making this loud noise help

i have looked for a resevoir but can't see anything, do i have to take it in to a shop?

This morning I put my car in part and went to turn the car off but my key will not turn to the lock position. I am able to turn the steering wheel, put the car in another gear but can not turn the key all the way over to lock. This problem is stopping my doors from locking as well. I called the horrible dealership in Wake Forest where I purchased the car and have to bring it in the morning. I am trying to get a heads up so I don't get snowballed by this dealership for things I do not have to pay for.

The check engine light was on in our 2007 Chrysler Aspen 5.7L and we took it to the dealer as our regular mechanic said he didn't have the equipment to do a 'smoke test' on a PCM code 'P0440' which is a general emisions failure. The dealer charged $105 to do smoke test, which seemed the norm, as Car-X wanted $98, and said repairs would be on TOP of that charge, which resulted in $225 in labor, $9.45 for a part and $20.25 for CO2? The total bill was $268.77 to replace what was called a vaccum assist pump. Did i get the runaround?
Words of tech are as follows: customer states check engine light on

My electrical components seem to have a mine of it's own. One time they work and the next time it doesn't work.It affects my instrument panel, door locks,and fuel getting to the fuel injectors. Also, I have a battery that is not the right one for the car.Top post instead of side post.

I think I have a leak in the brake fluid as there is none in the reservoir and the brakes go to the floor.

Also how do you remove the door to get to the motor?
