My 5-speed manual transmission will not shift into any gear, including reverse, while the engine is running. When I turn off the engine, it will shift into all gears, including reverse.

Any clue as to the fix for this?

how do i go about removing and replacing alternator on a 1998 dodge stratus es

Hi: I have a 2002 Stratus 2.7 engine. Today kicked out a PO420 code, bank 1. No others. Talked to several local mechanics who all referred me to "Joe" who they considered to be an expert. I wanted to see if he could pin down if cat was bad, or bad O2 sensor. His normal diagnostic charge is $90 but he refused to do it, says would waste my money. He says this vehicle/engine, I have to go to dealer and have both converters and all 4 sensors replaced with factory parts. Says for this vehicle/engine, after market parts won't work. What say ye ? thanks, Mark

I have just replaced the water pump and put ti back together and ran it. it runs great but after ten min, a clapping noise started to happen. Timing marks were all on, there is no problem with the engine, however i did put the end of a coat hanger in the tensioner the get the oil out and reset the tensioner, i may have damaged the little ball valve at the end of the tensioner? If the valve is not working what doe's that do to the tensioner, not shur if thats the problem or not like i said the engine runs good!!

fan and air conditioning control only works on level four: full blast

my car is running hard and the noise like car door is open keep going off while i am driving. i have a engine light on as well.

Diagnostic codes p0134 and p0154. I would like to know the locations of bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 2 sensor 1.
