had my front brakes done by an auto shop not even a year ago, now brake calipers are bad and brake fluid is old and now a dark color.
Can I self repair?
I an getting a P0131 on my 2000 Malibu. I checked wiring and connections and then disconected the battery for a minute to turn off the check engine light. I started the engine and the check engine light instantly came back on. I would think it would take ar least a couple minutes for the code to set again. What problem would that indicate?
Over the last month, my car has been acting up. Taking longer and longer to turn over, removing the key and the engine still running! Now this morning, my car wouldn't start, wouldn't turn over and the key fab wouldn't work! Its completely dead! We tried to jump it and it melted the jumper cables! Help?!? Whats wrong?!?
What Im saying is when I cut the car off and take keys out, the radio doesn't cut off and the windows still are able to work AFTER I OPEN THE DOOR. Will that drain the battery? it just doesnt fell right cause I dont wanna be stranded any where because of this.
The key gets stuck in the acc. position. The only way i can remove the key is by shifting from park to drive and back to park a few times. Sometimes the key returns to off and i can remove the key with no problem.The shifter seems to be working OK. The car only has 39900 km. Can this be a shifter (switch) problem or do i need to replace the ignition cylinder. I just purchased the car 1 month ago and the key got stuck 2 or 3 times in the last week but now the key gets stuck almost every time i use the car. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thank you Bernie
The vent on my chevrolet malibu got broken. I pulled the dash apart and tried and replaced the vents. and put it all back together.
Now the car won't start. There are no dash lights, the anti theft device isn't flashing. There is no response when I turn the key.
On the front blinkers the lights are on, they are not blinking but solid. Is this an anti theft problem?
Took it to a mechanic and he checked the pressure and said it was too high and suggested I take it to dealership. What could possible be the problem and what estimated cost would I be looking at? Thank you.
I was told it was from my oil pan or filter...they also they would have to lift my motor to get to it... i just need to know from where and how much it will be before i take it to a shop and they want to charge me a arm and a leg

NO POWER, NOT SHIFTING RITE, HESATATION
We have had the problem where you have to wait the ten minutes with the car in accessory mode and then restart. Well, yesterday my husband had to replace the cam shaft sensor and a blown fuse. Mechanically the car cranked and was running fine. Then my husband turned the car off. When he went to crank it back up, it will stay cranked for like three seconds and cuts itself off. The theft system light stays on constantly and won't blink. We are at a loss at what to do next. We tried the 10 minute thing. Nothing. It will crank time and time again but cut off after 3 seconds. Please help someone!
AC CLOWER MOTOR MAKES A TICKING SOUND
I guess a specific problem will be deleted by disconnecting for a certain duration, then connecting again.
I've heard about for reinitialising data for the bad use of "At a distance starting key system"
After a while good working... these failed : no more flashing neither left or right; hazards go on good working.
The right arm for cleaning window just operate on two highest speed, none action when pushing for liquid on glasses.
Should it be a good idea to disconnect battery for 10 minutes, what about this way of doing...for what problems ?
We got new brake calipers and tires changed 2-3 weeks ago. Tires have been re-balanced. It's not just steering wheel that shakes, but whole car. It was just a slight tremble, and now it's worse after balancing. Right around 45-50 it shakes, but 60 it calms down.
I turned it off and waited a couple of hours and went to get an oil change. The car has been fine since. Should I have it checked out more? Could there be an impending transmission problem that was temporarily fixed by resetting the low oil status?
i opened the trunk and remove the covering but what do i have to remove to get lens to pop out
After replacing the battery the gauges on the dashboard went out. And some lights its like half of the dash is working and the other side out
some one tore up the switch we changed it and now we can't start it.It turns over but no results in starting it.
After exiting the vehicle and closing the door without locking it, the theft deterrant light on the dash flashes every few seconds. By reading the owners manual, its my understanding that the light should flash every 3 seconds after locking the vehicle. Also, can this light cause a battery drain? When the vehicle is left unlocked, I don't believe the light should be flashing. It hasn't in the past.
It have a new battery.
No dipstick found to be able to check levels for transmission nd no resisvour for steering pump leak is bad came sudden
All other lights work fine
The car seems to be pulling or shifting on its own... It acts like as if it wants to turn off.
come on it dont start but radio and everything does come on .. once the gas gauge works and stuff it will start any ideas ?
What can be causing this problem?
