The jerking started about two weeks ago. i bought the car feb. 14th

truck runs good when driving. but at idle it has a miss. I'v changed the distributor(new) spark plug wires,cap,rotor,plugs still has the code.

How can I remove the passenger side door interior door pillar--there is a rattle at top of the pillar, perhaps seatbelt related. The problem is audible on bumpy roads.

I went to get a smog and it failed and it had four codes so I did tune up and changed spark plugs and wires and oil change and o2 sensors all four.. but I still have code 300 multiple miss fire and and code 420 low lean efficiency on bank 1.. what else could it be.. everyone giving me the run around.. please help me..

Is it safe to drive a 2005 mazda 3 with a failed ac compressor and clutch? Unit made a loud noise and was smelling. When I turned off the ac, the loud noise stopped.

I bought my car (98,000) miles. A week after I drove it about 40 miles and temperature gauge went all the way to hot. I pulled over immediately and let it cool back down for a couple of minutes. I continued driving (300 mile trip) and got it home. No more overheating problems from there, coolant was full. Return trip I was about 50 miles out and it heated up again. Jiffy lube told me it had only 30% coolant 70% water, so I got undiluted coolant and drove it the rest of the way home. It didn't overheat again. One auto shop told me to flush the coolant because of debris. Anyone have any ideas?

my oil was leaking and I took it into the mechanic. He did some re-sealing but said if continues to leak that it will need housing replacement. Is this something that I can find used or is it best to let him get the part for lots of $$?

I need to replace 3 bad fuel injectors in my car. I was told that I need to replace all 8 fuel injectors because they fire in certain sequence. Is it necessary for me to replace all 8 fuel injectors?

Brought a used Dodge Nitro six days ago and this morning noticed that the front part of the rails of separated from the roof top. Has this happened to anyone else? If it has what did you have to do to repair it?

Why does my engine slip when the car gets hot and why does the speedometer and the RPM needle go hay wire when the car gets hot?

After stoping from a highway run such as a rest area stop.
When I start the car I get a hudge cloud of white smoke.
This happens after highway runs and after the car sits for a short time.
If I come off the highway and go home and the car sits overnight I get the same problem.
I have used a crank case cleaning flush several times with no change.
Was thinking it may be valve guide seals but I think that should smoke after sitting all the time and also would be blue smoke?
Anybody have any thoughts?
