I recently purchased a car that I knew had problems and while I was driving it home on the freeway the muffler started shooting flames. I got it home (thank goodness) without any other problems outside of it not wanting to pick up speed. Supposedly the distributor was changed and that is the problem but when I looked under the car I notice the pipes from the engine to the tail pipe was glowing red..Fire RED! Any clues as to where to start?

how does four brake replacement normally cost?

I can hear it in the rear end even when I make sharp turns.

Where is the starter located on the engine?

I have what appears to be tiny shreds of paper coming out of my vents when the air is on. They cover the dashboard much like ashes from a cigarette would

i pulled to the right to avoid a deer and hit a curb i noticed the rim had a chunk taken out of it and my wheel was off centered how much would it cost to have the control arm fixed. does anyone know

I both the car used from a dealer about 6 months ago.

Last night I had a new battery installed. The car started fine. But the radio does not work. On the radio/clock display it reads (enter code) I don't know what code to enter!

It's time to replace the in cabin air filter

I do believe the dash board and tail lights went out when my son was playing with the stero. The stero has been acting up and is not locked into place. It has a little free play sitting in its slots. The stero is still working but the dash board and tail lights are still out. I have checked every fuse. Three times! Can it be the a relay switch?

I replaced the wheel bearing on the pasanger front tire. after i did this, the VSA alarm on dash came on. has somthing to do with all wheel drive stability on corners and sensy track system. Means that system is not working.. had a bolted down sencer that goes into wheel bearing department. did i put the wheel bearing in backwards. is thier a magnetic part on wheel bearing that is only on one side of replacement bearing.

Tranmission want pull in any gear. Should I have get used unit or rebuild old one.

The Horn doesn't work at all. There is no sound made, not even a clicking noise. The fuse descriptions don't mention the horn and everything else works (lights, blowers, etc.).

while driving the car seems to hesitate, and the rpm's drop

the water and coolant is slowly disappearing from the reserve tank. 4 days ago the reserve tank was full and now it is almost empty. The temperature guage never goes up, but it dose seem that th engine is getting really hot. The major hose from the radiator to the engine was recently changed because it was bloated. How can I tell if the engine is getting hot or if a head gasket might blow. The reserve gets lower and lower.

My automatic transmission was rebuilt, including torque converter replaced. My transmission is now working properly, however, there is a noise like the transmission revs up. The noise wasn't there before, but you can hear it reving up. Any suggestion/tip would be greatly appreciated.

The heater fan stopped working and we found the fuse is fine and that a direct current going to the heater allows it to operate. That leaves the heater switch or something between the switch and the motor that has gone bad. Any ideas on which it is and where can I find a replacement part? Thanks!

My dealer quoted $850 (or $765, giving me a 10% discount because I'm broke) to replace the timing belt (and associated belts, serpentine, etc.) and the water pump on my car. An independent dealer with excellent reviews on Yelp quoted me $490. I've never been anywhere but the dealer, but $850 (even $765) is a lot of money for me. It's important to me to get this right, since it should be the only service I do on the car for a while if it's done correctly. Should I go to the dealer because I know they have to guarantee their service, or should I try the independent dealer who's much cheaper with good reviews (even though I've never used him before)?

The car only has 65K miles on it, but since it's a 2001, the dealer says I should replace the timing belt now (and the water pump while the belt is off).

What do you guys think?

My battery light just came on last night on my 1991 Honda Civic DX 4dr Auto. My battery is less than 2 years old and is a Honda Battery. Why would this light come on?

I was told that the front axle shaft needs to be replaced. The car does not click or have a steering problem. The wheel bearings were replace earlier with also ball joints. The car is still making a roaring noise at a high speed over 40 on the same area. What do you think is the problem...tire noise? dshaw53868@aol.com

Imy car is getting hot really quick and I think its the thermostat but I am not 100% sure When i am driving it stays in the normal zone but when I stop like at a red light it jumps up to the H and the coolant is boiling out of the over flow tank. Is it my thermostat? if so how hard is it to replace myself?

The rear window defogger fails to operate. The dash light comes on with other dash lights but the indicator lamp in the switch does not come on when depressed. I have replaced fuse (10A) under dash. The connectors to the rear window grid are good, and the rear window grid is good.

why is the oil from my engine leaking?

transmission fluid was put into my clutch resevoir and i need to get it out so it does not mess up my warrenty

i think my altenator went out but my radio still works
does that mean it may not be my altenator

a glass moving mechanism on a door stoped working

Check engine light always stays on NO codes turn it off to pass emissions which it does fine.This time car won't start.Cranks no spark but the check engine light and the key light which always comes on when you start it are not coming on..can still hear the key chime.It's not the ignition coil-replaced that since it had a burn spot and didn't trust it.Also new spark plugs.Thinking the lack of those 2 lights coming on and no spark must be related.Has never happened before


cannot open door with the key
