I have had oil in the coolant resevoir, what do you believe the problem is?
I have power windows, and they stopped working one day. The left side needed the actuator replaced, so that's done. I was told I needed to replace the control box on the passenger side, done. I have power going to the box but none of the windows work. All I can think of is the relay but I can't find it. All the fuses are good so what am I missing?
It stopped once before a few months back and than it starting again so I didn't take it in for service.

Shouldn't I expect to get more than 2yrs use out of new OEM steering gear?

2008 Chev impala blows 20 amp fuse to sun roof switch does not have to be on for it to blow either.
I can put the car in Park but the key doesn't always come out. Sometimes it releases and comes out, other times even though I restart the car, run through the gears, put it back in park 10, 15 or 20 times, it still won't release. I'm not sure if this is just chance, but it seems if I am putting it in Park slightly UPHILL and steering wheel to the right, the key will come out. Yes, by leaving the key in, I have had several dead batteries.
When driving at highway speeds, I press the accelerator and the car does not accelerate, then my power steering quits. I have to pull over, shut the car off for a minute and then after starting it back up everthing is normal again. The battery checks out fine, and had a relative drive it for a few days and it did not do it. Any ideas?

the radio does not turn off and i think the steering wheel will not lock,all lights turn off and elec. door locks work. so how involved is it to change the ignition ?? fixed income so i need to do my self,if possible ??
having trouble with the passlock system? Since the key would not be starting the car it seems to me I would not have the problem. If it would work it seems like a much cheaper and less complicated fix. If not how expensive and how hard is it to replace or bypass the system would it be?
What does the pinon rockin have to do with the power steering.
We have a chevy Impala 06 with 87000 miles, we have had it for years and every time I drive longer than two hours the check engine light turns on. Then after a few days it turns off. I take it in before every trip for a check up and oil change and they say its in great condition. Should I be worried about my 9 hour drive home? Or just forget about it?
about 20 mph when I hit a second speed bump. My mechanic replaced two motor mounts, two transmission mounts, right front axel and front struts. one month later, the right front axel bound up and broke. after being repaired a 2nd time, on Xmas day making a right turn from a dead stop the axel bound up and broke for the 3rd time. now the lower right control arm has been replaced aand the mechanic says the right front wheel is still traveling too far. Help!!! Is there a mechanical stop somewhere that may be bent or broken? What elso can you suggest. (2 tows also cost $400!!)
All my brake system lights are on how do I service my Tracktion system.
I've had my car 2weeks and the maniford just blow off as if it was an explosive. is that rare?
Goes in reverse has har time going forward doesn't accelerate until hitting second gear
and shortly after the car shut off i then struggled to get it home it died 2 more times within 25 miles and it was having problems shifting. i tried to shut off the traction control so that it maybe wouldnt matter but it kept popping on and saying service traction control then it feels rough running after that i need ideas on how to service traction control please.
the alternator is whining, sometimes at startup sometimes after warmup. no warning lights and car works fine. afraid it may fail soon, getting more frequent, and louder. it doesn't sound like a bearing however i am not sure.
Thanks for any help.
