Ive had overheating problems and have replaced the water pump, radiator, thermostat, and removed the heads and flushed
the engine block and also flushed all the hoses and accessable passages and still have a pressure and overheating
problem. Please help, C. Davis Farmington Mi.

P1450 CODE

Could I add fix leak stuuf to fix leak.Could powering steering motor lock up?

Blower has stopped working- has been noisy. For a while if it stopped, I was able to smack it under the passenger side dash and it would start back up, but now that won't work. Is that something I could possibly repair myself? Hoping that if I can get to it, maybe just needs to be cleaned/lubricated?!? (I don't usually do work myself on my car, but can follow instructions, and would like to save some money at this point).

where is the freeze plug on engine

how do i fix the front seal or how much would it cost to have it fixed? I have a puddle of fluid in my driveway every day .I put fluid in and drive 5-6 mies and back home then it leaks out then I have to put more in

after replacing the Pump I flushed the entire system,Removed radiator and checked for flow,which is good now.thermostat has been replaced and tested also.Removed freeze plug and power flushed engine block, all hoses have passage including
heater core.I still have a serious pressure and overheating problem after flushing with several agents about 10 or more times to get all the rust colored water out.even though there is no obvious detectable problem with
the heads, no leaking or steam in the exhaust,or water in the oil.the motor still runs well.could there be blockage in the heads or breached head gaskets ? It seems like the pressure is building up in the out flow of the radiator hose going into the intake manifold.I checked the thermostat several times and is working fine.could there be blockage in the intake manifold or in the passage in the
water ports in the heads.? could the head gaskets somehow be blown out or clogged with debris.? Is there a way of checking this before dismantling the engine for further inspection.... sincerly C.Davis , Det. Mi.

The floor light and the right rear drive light will keeps flashing constantly until the battery drains. We found that taking the dimmer switch all the way down stops the floor lights from coming on but the drive lights still flashes unless we disconnect the battery.

where is the oil pump on a 2003 windstar

the codes say right and left bank too lean and multiple missfires it run real bad and has no power the check fuel cap light is on replaced the fuel cap did a tune up fuel filter isolator bolts and now im stumped

After doing some research I have found out that it is a door sensor that is causing my windshield wipers and fluid to continually run, as well as the door alarm going off and the door locks go crazy. My husband sprayed WD40 everywhere and cleaned off the side door sensors. My question is just what exactly will a mechanic do to fix this problem?
Both front windows don't roll down either, this has been the case since getting the van, so can the mechanic fix the windows at the same time as the sensors, maybe saving us some money?

Thanks in advance

What has to be removed to replace the oil pan? Is there anything else I should consider while I'm at it?

Yesterday (7-23-10) my car cut off and I was not able to get it to start back. If I did crank it up it would stay cranked up for like no more than 3 seconds. I had it towed in and the mechanic said that the car was not getting enough of gas and that was the reason why it was cutting off. He did not have time to work on it and to see what was wrong with it yet. The mileage on it is over 180,000. I have notice the car once in a while when I press on the gas it would slow down then go more faster, but I am clueless on this one. What would make the van not get enough of gas and not start?
