I was driving and the clutch and car were working fine, I came to a stop sign and put the car in nuetral before shifting back into first to take off and the shifter did not want to go into gear. Finally it went in and I turned the corner and it popped out of gear. I pulled over and now it will start and go into all gears but when I let out on the clutch, nothing happens it is like it is still in nuetral. I checked the cable to the slave cylinder and it is moving the fork fine, I am not sure if the clutch is bad or what, the person I bought it from said the clutch is less than a year old. Only thing i can think of is that maybe the throwout bearing is stuck and the plates cannot return pressure to the flywheel. Help!!

my tires are wearing out extremely fast on the outside on the front of my car. the back tires are fine. i've heard that it could be the suspension or that the tow needs to be adjusted? any advice would be great. cuz i've gone thru two sets of tires on my front end in the past year. thanks =)

I am having air conditioner problems and would like to try and figure out if the compressor is out or if it might be something else. My air worked fine on the way to work and when I got off it was not blowing cold. The next day I took it and had freon added. He did say he had a hard time getting it to take freon. It worked fine when I left there and went to work. The next day it was not cold again. I assumed I had a leak. A friend checked the freon and said it showed to be full and said that there is some kind of overfill and underfill switch on the compressor that might have shut it off. Has anyone heard of this? My other question is if the compressor could be out. I didn't think so because of it not working the first day and then it did work after adding freon twice. Help Please.

as above car is now dangerously overheating.During winter and spring the temp. was OK unless I pushed the car, hard.The catalytic converter is also about shot.

I have a 1993 Ford Escort wagon with all the symptoms of an oil pump failing. Only has 71,000 on the engine (senior citizen owned before me. I'd appreciate an informed opinion as to cost.

This is my son's first car, has about 160,000 miles and has started locking up with anti theft shut down where the switch will turn, lights on the dash but starter will not engage. If we wait hours (minimum of 2-3) it will then start. Have stopped using the clicker in case that is the problem it is very worn out. Don't want to spend lots on it cause it isn't worth it.

runs rough all the time,changed wires and plugs
