i tried to start my car and it wouldn't start. my friend replaced a vacuum hose thing that had rotted and also the fuel filter and it idles but as soon as i tap the gas pedal it cuts out. another friend who is a mechanic says it sounds like the air flow sensor meter. he says it is easy to replace. i have no idea where this is located so that i can check it...or how much it will cost if it needs replacing.

My struts are pretty worn out. I hit RailRoad tracks and bottomed out. Now no reverse and it slips in drive. all fluid levels are fine. It has a tapping sound when in Park or Neutral.

Prior to the problem with the fuel pump, I was getting 27 to 33 mpg. Since replacement, my mpg has dropped in half and the engine still bogs and acts like it wants to die.

Happens several times a week. Will not start light flashes. Ten minutes later it will start...

Is there a special way to get the motor out after drilling the rivits out. All I see is a arm with a pin holding it in now is that a press pin. Our does it pop apart.

can an intake manifold gasket leaking cause the engine to take longer than normal to heat up? what would it cost to replace the gasket if that's the problem?

Water appears on both front floors in my 1996 buick skylark after a rain. I had the windshield replaced and there is still water on the floor.

when i turn my lights on, my battery light comes back on. i just put in a new alternator (mine failed when tested) and a new battery (because it wouldn't run unless jumped, but would then die when i turned the lights on... so maybe my battery was fine?) but when i turn on my lights the battery light comes back on and stays on.

Hello -- my skylark started overheating in stop & go traffic but was fine on the interstate and I noticed that I could hear the fan shutting off. I had the fan replaced but now it overheats immediatley (within 2 - 3 miles). What could this be? Thank you!!!

the car will run for about 5-10 min. and then shut off... then has trouble restarting but sometimes if you just let it sit for a little bit it will restart and do it all over again... we just replaced the fuel pump and filter.

Have an electrical problem. The lights went dim, The radio had power surges you could hear over the speakers, The blinker signal slowed, battery was drained in less than a day of driving. Replaced alternator and battery this did not solve electrical problem. Drained another new battery. July 2010
