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.

I need labor and parts, mostly labor charges though.

My 2003 has a little over 161,000 miles on it. When should the timing belt be changed and how hard is it to change?

floor can I drive it 30 miles home like that?

and the sensor with no success. still not working do you have any ideas of what else I can do. it is 20 degrees in the morning here and my wife is freezing to death to drive it.

2 days ago i go to start my car and thew tumblers in my ignition switch were locked(I've never had this problem before), so I went out and spent $400 on a new ignition switch and the electric black box on the back. I got it installed and the ignition freely moves to accessories and the on position, but when you go to turn it over and get it to crank it just clicks.... but won't turn over. Please help before I have to take this into a GM dealership and get "rear ended" with prices. i'd love to just be able to either fix it on my own or atleast be able to let them know what I need done. Thanks in advance!!!!!!

could it be relay went bad?

after driving for like 2 hours total but with breaks between for about 2 hours then going up a hill bout a 7 prcent grade for 2 miles the engine sounds like ur goin like 70 mph but ur only goin 50-55 what are causes of that and what can i do to fix it

I can start the car and drive but the key won't come out. I have tried moving it from Park to Reverse to Neutral several times but the key won't come out. Can turn the engine off but the lights stay on and runs down the battery. The dealership said a wire broke and therefore won't tell the computer that the car is in park. They said a couple other wires are bound up and it will cost me $365.00 to get it fixed. Is there by chance a recal on this?

The only time of vibration is when applying brakes while traveling downhill at a speed greater than 45 mph; first noticed this vibration while traveling downhill for 12 miles at 10% grade; applying brakes in any other situation does not cause any steering wheel vibration.

The part (ignition switch lock cylinder replacement) alone was 591.97. And then another 187.50 to remove and replace. Plus 75.00 for diagnose. My key would not turn in the ignition.
Now I have to wiggle it for about 10 seconds before it will turn over. That is what started before. I think I got ripped on the part. Does this sound right to you?

i push in the brake and it still wont move from park position.

There is power from the ignition switch to the body control module. I thought it could be the alarm but I bypassed it and it still does not crank over.

I put direct power into the ignition relay but there is no power.

Checked all the relays and traced the wiring but still no power to coil or starter. There is power but it wont crank over.

An email of these would help tremendously if there are any.

Oil change was done about 1 month ago and I took your advice previously about the cat. converter and I had that replaced.

i gave my brothe a jump in my i back in it to leave an it didnt do anything but i did hear something like something came a lose i never heard anything like this before it was all of a sudden i had been in my car all day an it gave me no signs of nothing was wrong with it

rear exhaust gasket needs changing and i want to change it but never done on before is it diffucult

the shifting problems occur sometimeswhen the car is warmed up. you dont have to drive it but 30 miles and it will start shifting extremely hard. it only has 85000 miles on it and the car has not been beat tranny tluid is full. please answer as soon as possible

How can I do that quickly yet completely?

I have owned the car for almost 5 years now and I have never had any problems with it until this past year. I just spent $1,200 replacing and fixing it up and I just replaced the spark plugs and cables for the second time in 8 months. The car has almost 140,000 miles on it and now it wont start up all the time for example I will turn the key and the lights and radio will come on but the engine/starter wont even make a sound, I wait for a few seconds and try again and nothing but lights and radio again! In the end it takes about 10 tries for the car to finally start up. Can someone please give me some insight into what may need to be replaced? Maybe some cheaper alternative options also since I just put about $1,300 into fixing other problems this past March.

even when putting pressure on the brake it will not move out of park. i can hear a click under the dash but nothing happens
