My wipers won't work! Neither does the windshield washer. I changed the wiper fuse. Then I changed the wiper control/ cruise control/ signal/ lever. Then I changed the switch that the wiper/signal lever connects to and still nothing. I changed the circuit board on the wiper motor. I bypassed everything by grounding the motor and connecting the battery positive directly to the motor and IT WORKED. Which leads me to believe that it might be more than just the motor. I'm completely stumped! I'm not crazy about letting strangers (mechanics) touch my little girl, but I will if I have to. My biggest question is, is it possible for a bad washer pump to cause the entire system to fail?
06 corvette coupe.
Power steering became heavy
In shift, standardized operation, but the flameout
I changed the belt prior to the harmonic balancer & 4 times after the balancer-even tried a Gator back belt, changed the tensioner also. I isolated it to the main belt. Took it to Chevy mechanic claimed dirty pulleys-cleaned them all, they put on a new belt-one month later same morning chirps until warm up...Help what gives? Thank you.
previously I observed it was rotating in a gap of time.
how can I tell when the car is ready
I was charged $139 just to put freon in my car. Was I overcharged??
Happens after car is warmed up. Steam has odd smell, probably from anti-freeze. But how does it get into a/c vents? And what causes it?
I have spent over $4000.00 to have the throttle body replaced, the ECM, all sparkplug wires and plugs, replaced the rotor cap and rotor, replaced throttle body and sensor. Had fuel pump and filter checked. Car will die at slow speed like parking or stopping at a red light. When I hit it hard on the freeway it will hesitate and shudders and feels like it is going to stall. I have no idea except perhaps injectors. It really seems like a fuel problem. The dealer is suggesting that it could be the solenoid sensor for the OD on the transmission and I am taking it in this morning to have that disconnected to see if that helps. They can not find any problems when it is connected to the computer and they scan all systems. Any suggestions???
I took it in and discovered the valves had heavy carbon deposits. Some of the valves were sticking in the valve guides. we increased the diameter of the valve guides and reworked the valve seats. I have been advised to use a 20-50 Valvoline oil which contains zinc additive. I am also using an octane booster in the fuel.
When I try to start car all lights work radio but it won't crank over.
my tempature on my dash reads 90 degrees but i still dont get any heat
need to replace power steering rack.
the car will not turnover
Bought it used from Ebay. I think the security system is preventing it from starting. What do I do? Do I need to change any codes or bypass the security system?
My wipers won't work! I changed the wiper fuse. Then I changed the wiper control/ cruise control/ signal/ lever. Then I changed the switch that the wiper/signal lever connects to and still nothing. Before you recommend the obvious, to change the wiper motor, I have to mention that the windshield washer isn't working either. No washer fluid sprays when the washer switch on the signal lever is pressed. Which leads me to believe that it might be more than just the motor. So, is the motor the fix? Or am I missing something?
i have a 95 corvette it will start right up when it is cold but after it warms up it will not click or anything i replaced the ignition switch but no luck what else can it be
how can i get it loosened up to start ??
Can you tell me where the check valves are located ?
tap motor housing will start working at very low speed.
also starts a squeeling noise after driving for 10 miles let it sit wont squeel not the belt or pullies. if you put your hand or cap back to valve cover it sucks it down(hard)intake gaskets have been replaced
the problem happens continously
We can not fine the sensor.
Problem occurs maybe once or twice past year. Happen yesterday, disconnected battery for 30 seconds (reset computer)and it started. Starter solenoid was replace and bench tested a two months ago. Someone said change starter relay. Looked in Chilton and Haynes and could not find.
PLEASE! PLEASE HELP!
I plan to replace them with LED tail lights.
The beeping sound also happens when car is running.
Shop says crankshaft pulley membrane is coming apart and needs to be replaced.
