HELP!!! My check engine light, VSC and trac lights all came on. The car runs fine when it is moving, but when idle at a stop light it shakes like crazy. I took it to the dealer and they are telling me that these codes mean that my timing chain (which my engine has 3) skipped a tooth and needs to be replaced, but to replace it the entire engine needs to be taken apart. BIG $$$$$ to fix. I have been reading posts that state to check the gas cap, oxygen senor and the EVAP value. Has any had a timing chain go?

I drove the car last night, everything was fine. This morning the fan wouldn't come on, the seat heater wouldn't come on, and the outside temp guage read ---- . I dont' know if maybe it's a fuse, or the blower motor (althought I don't know why that would affect the outside temp guage or the seat heater). Any thoughts?

I have a 1994 ford aspire 5 speed manual. Last winter I stopped at a stop sign. When I put the car into 1st gear it wouldn't move forward. I then put it into neutral and tried to put into first again. To my dismay, Nothing. I then tried it in second. Nothing. Finally I got it to go in 3rd gear and reverse but that was all. My shifter floats around freely and won't even stay in second now. What is wrong and how can I resolve this issue. I love this car and miss driving it.

I put the car into Park after driving and when you go back to start the car the car will start but the car will not move out of Park and go into reverse. You either have to wait for the car to "reset itself" to move into reverse, tow the car to home and wait, or we have seen where we "jerk" the car back and forth with two people in the front seat and the car goes back into gear and then goes into Reverse. No issues with starting the car and no other issues with the car. I had the tranmission rehauled last year (due to the car hit a pot hole and it damages the transmission) and also went back for them to re-look at this as a possible problem. When this happens the light on the dash says "Gear Box Fault". This message does not always show when this happens. I really need to know how to fix this. Please help me if you have any ideas. 1999 Jaguar XJR with 78,000 miles.

Just replaced my radiator and my car wont idle. It goes up and down between 1000 and 2000 rpms. I tried to bleed the air out of the cooling system per recommendations from friends and some forums and engine continues to rev up and down. I checked for leaks in vacuum hoses and found nothing. What else could it be? Engine ran fine before I replaced the radiator for the 3 years that I have had the car.

and you can feel it in the seat and wheel and my mirror vibrates and I can't figure out what it is
