leaking water from radiator. Having to replace water in overfill bottle.
I recently had my wheel bearing assemblies and my driver side outer tie rod end replaced and also had my wheels balanced. I drove from IL to TN with the car loaded down with boxes and my dog and cat and within the last 100 miles of my trip the front end started shaking really badly. It is still shaking really badly and it is worse at speeds of 50 or above. Could it be the tires came out of balance, I damaged a rim or maybe the other tie rod end is going out? Please advise. Thanks.
Making a noise which seems to be under my feet while driving. Drive train? Engine runs good.
dash lights not working turn siganl and high beam lights are on with the dimmer switch could a bad light switch cause this?
When I am driving, seems to be only low speeds and turn wheel to the left, I get a low loise. Not really a whining. Hard to explain.

The oil pressure light works ok. In the past the oil pressure reading in the DIC was approximately 50-70. Now it is 90-120 and still says normal. The car seems to run ok. What is the proper pressure reading supposed to be?

all at once
need to know the correct torque for valve covers
I drive often and never hear anything but normal noises that echo off the road, but when I make one right turn (always the same place) I get the grinding noise. Now, the tie rods and ball joints have always been greased and I checked them out, they are in good condition. It comes from the passenger side wheel, the noise that is. It goes away, even while driving. I do not feel anything in the steering wheel. It only happened once making a left turn. I was going into a dip on that one, where as the right turn it is upward.
Now a clunking noise has developed when turned all the way to the right. I can hear it go all across the bottom of my car. I checked the tie rods and ball joints, both are good.
Could it be a strut?

My son useour Buick this morning and brought it home and when we went out to use it, the car won't turn over. It doesn't do anything. The dash lights come on and the gauges move and the fuel pump runs, but the starter won't turn over. I jumped the solinoid and the the hot wire and the car starts and runs. When you turn it off and try again with the key there is nothing unless you jump the solinoid and then it starts. I put a tester to the wire on the solinoid and had someon turn the key to start and I have no power. Can someone help me?
see above what else can cause this problem ?? Thank you
There is a strong smell of gas in the passenger compartment when the engine initially starts and particularly when the heater is running. The check engine light is on. The light is steady...not flashing.

The engine will stall without warning while in drive and moving. Dealer looked at it and indicated the computer is failing and needs to be replaced. Would this be true and on average, what would be the charges to replace it using a remanufactured computer?
