Oil seems to be showing leakage around the seals, upper and lower area of engine. For the time being I degrease engine periodically, but I would like to know where, and approximately how much it will cost. I'm not to sure if it's the same as gaskets on this car, last estimated quote recieved was between $800-$1000 total to repair.

The rear right window on my Toyota Camry 94 is failing to lower (go down). I bought a brand new regulator/motor assembly and before installing it I tested it by connecting the harness and operating the switch. The regulator operates well while raising the window but it does not lower it. I repeated the test with the switch from the other window (which is operating correctly in both directions) and it also failed to lower the window with the new regulator. So, in conclusion it looks like the problem is neither with the regulator/motor assembly nor with the switch...
Any tips to help find the problem area and fix it will be highly appreciated.

I had my car in the shop about 7 weeks ago because my car, upon driving after braking, would make a high screeching sound and be hard to steer forward. No matter where I was, the only way to move forward was to turn off the motor and turn it back on. The diagnostics showed nothing and the AntiLock light and Service Engine Soon light would come on. They thought it was a sensor and reset whatever so the lights would go off. Alas, they found nothing wrong.

The problem is recurring with the Anti Lock and the Service Engine Soon light coming on. I had it "to" the shop and I was told if it was the brakes that they had to hear or have it act up within their presence as it would be mechanical. I have had mechanics in the car, 3-4 times now, and driven a short while but nothing happens.

This past Saturday and Sunday, the car brakes seemed to lock and made a screeching noise twice. Twice I had a line of cars behind me in a traffice lane and one of those times, I had a big line behind me when I locked up trying to enter a divided highway at night. One of the times I was in a parking lot and a man walking down the asphalt told me it sounded like it was my brakes. He said it was so loud it startled him.

I never know when this will happen, but I'm terribly afraid this is going to cause a bad accident and people are going to be seriously injured or killed. This is happening 3-4 times a week now and I'm not even driving a lot.

The car repair shop (I was there twice last week) is a reputable chain shop, but I am getting nowhere and it seems I am not being taken seriously about the problem. I'm at my wits end. Any thoughts, on this issue, before someone gets seriously hurt, maimed, or killed?

Thank you,

Is there a switch to turn on and off for the Traction Control light in the dash board?

When I put the key into the ignition, the headlights and dashboard lights light up...But when I try and start the engine---the headlights and dashboard lights just flicker on and off and engine will not start?

When the keyfob is pressed it blinks the taillights,beeps and the latch unlocks but does not rise. After raising manually, when keyfob is pressed for retract it makes no sound and does absolutely nothing. The hand switch over the license plate is even very sketchy but works most of the time.

The rear right power window on my Toyota Camry 94 is failing to lower the window. I just bought a brand new regulator with motor and before replacing the old one I simply tested it by connecting it to the harness and operating the switch. The new regulator operates upward but not downwards. I also tested it with the switch from the other door, which is working fine. So, I believe the problem is neither with the switch nor with the motor/regulator assembly.
Any tips would be highly appreciated.

My minivan started a rattling noise under the hood on Feb. 13.I haven't driven it but twice since and it is still making the noise. I also smelled something like rubber burning at first, but not the second two times that I drove it. I don't see any leaks under my van.

My wife was driving the car (2003 E320 Benz) and the radio went out and the steering got tight, so she pulled off the road. When we looked under the hood the serpentine belt was off and frayed, and the pulley on the pulley tensioner was worn off. The center portion was worn out. First, what might have caused this. Second, about 45 days or 2 months before this, I had a water pump assembly installed. Could something have gone wrong with the water pump installation to cause the polley to tear up like this? We didn't hear any noise/squealing before the incident. Are there any warning signs when a pulley tensioner goes bad?
