I live in Indianapolis, IN. My driver's side door lock froze after car iced up on 12-05-10. Next night I went out start car and power door lock's would not unlock on sedan. Since it's driver's side door. No door lock's would open. You can hear door locking and try unlock. But would not unlock. I also could not get door to unlock manually with car key. I went to autozone & got some victor high pressure de-icer lubricant. Shot it in keyhole and after using entire cannister. I was able to get key to turn and power window's opened. I started car from passenger side. After warming up; door on driver's side finally unlocked. Power door's were operating efficiently. After doing some errand's I parked car (live in apt; car under a carport). Power door unlocking fine. I lubricated latch with silicone. Several hour's later I went back out to car and power door lock's once again would not open. Shot a lil more victor in keyhole and door unlocked manually easily. Once starting car driver's side door hinge not lifting or working with other door lock's from inside power door opener switch on armrest. After car has warmed up the door lock starts working again. Soo basically it get's working. Then sit's in cold; won't work again. I had a tear in my inside door weather strip. So I took car to dealer had strip replaced. Talking service guy I explained problem. He applied some lubricant to door lock. Thought maybe some moisture, frost in door refreezing. Didn't recommend replacing anything. Said if problem continue's bring it back in. As it is suppose to warm up into high 30's later this week. So I have been leaving driver's side door unlocked out of fear of it not working. When I get in car and check power door lock's. They all 3 work except the driver's side. After driving, warming car up and rechecking. The driver's side door lock start's working again. It is sticking when car cold. Working fine from inside and remote. It;s just not opening after it sit's in cold. I saw a previous question on a 97 car door that would not unlock with suggestion of removing door panel and lubricating with wd-40 and then lubricating oil all door mechanism's. Is this what I need to do? If so how easy/hard is it to remove door panel? Should I just take it back to dealer and insist they do this? Thank's for any reply's. -----------------------------------------------Tim In Indy

This happened last year and I reset the code and the light went off and has not returned until today. When diagnostic was run last year and yesterday Rocker Arm came up both times. Light does not flash, just stays one. What is going on

My son hit a curb and set off the passenger and driver airbags? I need to find out how much it costs to replace them?

what should my cca be on my battery?

When I turn on my car, it starts massively leaking engine oil. It's coming out about as fast as it does when you empty the tank during an oil change. It looks like it is flooding through the big timing belt cap. Any idea what needs to be replaced and how much I will be in debt after this? Is it better to take it into the dealer or will any repair shop know how to fix it right?


i drove to work this morning and when i went to leave it wouldn't start. a friend jump it and it started. on my way home it started like doing little hiccupps and then this light came on

I just recently had no pressure on my clutch, as instructed by a friend check the fluid, I had none, so I added fluid. I pumped the clutch to release air bubbles and it seems the clutch is not taking on any fluid, even if I just hold the clutch in, I am doing this with two people so while they push in on the clutch I watch the fluid.

Looks like this could be a difficult job ???? Anybody do this themselves ? Thanks, AWB ( 4 wheel disc & ABS )

i just service my car and it is still showing a service. and the spanner light has refused to go. and oil is not showing

So, Im looking to buy a vehicle. Its a 1995 Honda Accord LX. There are a few issues which are being resolved, but I keep getting different answers. HOW is an oil pan gasket changed in that Honda? Does the ENTIRE engine HAVE to come out? Or the ENTIRE suspension? Also, he said the "fuel bobber" may need to be adjusted...What is THAT about? I cant get ONE straight answer from shops so, Im hoping I can from you!!!Thanks for your time and for reading this!!!Hope to hear from someone soon:)

This is a first time occurence. While sitting in my apt parking alot all of a sudden the car stopped and wouldn't start. The gas gauge read 1/4 of a tank, I had just serviced the automatic transmission fluid. My daughter said she had problems on the interstate that the engine had to be down shifted to get up the hills ( not a normal occurence). I did a web search and stated that the main fuel pump relay is a common problem. Note the check engine light did not display any code while the engine wouldn't start.I put 3 gallons of gas in the fuel tank in the afternoonsome three hours after the engine quit. I thought I would give it a try and the engine started up and kept running. I was planning to change the fuel pump relay as this is a known problem with this engine. Also why didn't the engine flash a code identifying the problem ( I know this is a OBD 1 diagnostic sytem. Need assistance since the engine quit in the apt parking lot is less distressing than breaking down on the the highway.
