MY WIFE WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AN THE CAR JUST STOP. IT WOULD NOT TURN OVER LIKE THE BATTERY WAS DEAD.CHARGED IT HAD IT CHECK OUT AN IT WAS GOOD. SO I HAVE RULED OUT THE THE FUEL PUMP,AN THE ALTERNATOR.
I parked the car at 5a and went to use is again around noon & it wouldn't come out of park. My back passenger brake light has been out for awhile, not sure if that could have anything to do with it.
When my car is idling for a few minutes these will come on. I took it to autozone and they said there was only one code, "Cylinder 2 misfire". This has happened before and before I could get the code read the check engine light turned off, so it had stayed on about a day and a half. Also, it seems that at least the traction control is still working. Is this anything to worry about and what would I do to check this? Thank you in advance.
I shut key off it returns and restart it returns to normal sometime it last and sometime drop back to empty
My transmission has given out. What can I expect to pay to rebuild it?
My car is a Malibu Classic (2004. Driver's bag has hole in it. I think the passenger bag didn't have a hole. If not damaged, can it be repacked?
When i took the bolt out to replace the belt tensioner i got screw filler shavings or what looks like a boltscrew holder inside.. What are the called and how do i ask for them???
steering making a knocking noise when we turn it.
And after that I took to the best buy guy and he hooked up the new stereo. And still don't work... what should I do? Could there be a fuse.. if so which one?
replaced ignition lock and housing (new tumblers, springs to match to original key. Worked fine at home, put it in the car key was turning, after putting the cover, battery and GEAR SHIFT back to park position the key won't turn anymore. I took the cover off the shift assembly and manually shifter gears back and forth to make sure it's sitting it park position. I am able to put the key in and out, but no turning.
turn key nothing check all voltage points power everywhere could not get to park netural switch to check but i think it's ok. have not filled fluid level in steering pump till it is running.
Gas indicators fluctuates between full and 1/2 tank otherwise shows empty most of the time. Tried fuses several times and within 2 weeks the fuses are blown. I find also that my left signals and/or headlights have had to be replaced 2x in past year but have never had to replace the right side. I have had this car 4 years.
car would click when you would turn the key on finally today it wouldnt start at all i was told it was the charging sensor i want to know where it is located on the motor and how hard is it to put on
So far I replaced the gas cap, the selenoid and the charcoal cannister. Still, I can't pass inspection because of the cel, can someone supply me with another remedy?
I click the turn signal on and sometimes it starts to work, blinker going click click and lighting up THEN with it still clicked on it just stops on its own..it just goes dead, no light, no noise of clicking, just nothing. Ill click it on and off and NOTHING. then later while driving it will all the sudden work again. sometimes when they wont work for nothing, if I click my hazzards on for a min it will make the turn signals work again but not always.
gas gauge works sometimes and sometimes not
also checked the fuse and no problem there. Occasionally happened before, but after few trials was able to latch, now having to tie shut
no waterin oil car drove fine for a week and then one day it wouldnt go over 2500 rpm or 40 mph until eventually it wouldnt even start
MY CAR IS STALLING OUT, AND GAS IS LEAKING FROM THE MUFFLER.
Every time I fill the gas tank, the gauge shows full, but after a few minutes the needle falls to empty and I hear the warning indicator that the tank is empty (even though it isn't).
recently purchased with 36,000 miles. took it to shop who replaced evap vent selonoid and told me to drive for 80 miles which i did last nite, however the light is still on , any advice?
I can add water over night and it will still be full in the morning. But I can only drive about a mile to a mile in a half before the water evaporates. Water has to be added after a mile of driving the water reserve thing will be empty. the overheating indicator moves to over the half way point rather quickly. Therefore I can't drive for fear of overheating and causing more damage. I have not noticed any leaking of the water or other fluids for that matter.
I have had oil changed and other fluids checked.
I HAVE RECENTLY GOT AN OIL CHANGE, TUNEUP, AND ALSO CHANGE THE OIL PRESSUE SYSTEM
my sun visors fall out of the spot it is in to hold it in place. They have been replaced but I feel the person stripped something while replacing them. Where can i get this fixed? will glue fix it?
When I am driving my car, it will lose power and die down when I come to stop sign to stop or turn a corner after lifting my foot off the gas pedal. It jumps a little and then just cut off. What do you think causes this. It could cause me to be rammed in the back. I just brought a new air filter a few months ago.
I went to an auto supply store and they changed my battery.They plugged something in to keep the memory intact.When they finished I went to start my car and no gauges worked nor did the a/c.I also heard a compressor pully noise I associated with that.Checked all fuses that I knew of.Fuse block on both sides of the dash and 1 under the hood all was good.I bought an a/c relay and no fix of either issue?????
Driving down the street one day and power steering went out. bought power steering fluid. Come to find out, it is electric and does not need powere steering fluid.
put new plugs,wires and egr valve in.
map senser still good plenty of spark from the coil pack
it used to leak very little but now leaks a leter a weak.!it always leaks when i use it and my temperture goes up to normal, after i stop and the engine is warm already and i stop it it leaks loads of droplets of oil coming from the oil filter area.
