It has come loose on one side and is hanging loose on that one side. Appears to be some kind of cardboard or pressed fiber of some kind.

Reliability,maintenance costs, Snow performance, suggestions. Thank you!

My engine light has been on for awhile but was told it was my spark plug. It would jerk a bit when accelerating and oil light came on. Now wont start. It turns over just wont catch. Still have power. I also just found out there is a recall on my stop lamp lights. Does that have anything to do with it?

When I turn the hazards on, the brake lights flash. No wiring repairs have been done...just started doing this on its own. Rear lamps also don't illuminate when you turn the headlights on.

Thank you for your time.


Rear passenger side has clunking noise when coming to a stop if driving around 40mph. Steering wheel sways back and forth slightly.

My AC has failed and completely ceased to function at all. The air does not blow at all, hot or cold. However, I would like to try to repair this myself. Can anyone help as to what I need to replace, and if it is feasible to attempt the repair myself? Where would I start, or where could I find a good tutorial? Thank you!

my car receives little gas. idling as it will go off.
while driving ejected black smoke and poor draft.
I'm afraid that he's broken air flow sensor.

A month ago I removed and replaced the battery to be charged. Upon replacing it I do not think I did it completely properly. Also, two days ago my husband power washed the engine at a car wash and the car has not been running right since.

When driving my cruse control will excellorate and keep speeding up until I tap my brake to make it stop I've had this problem for 1 year. What do I do? I went for a oil change and the dealer cleaned something and it stopped doing it but has started back and I don't want to have to go to the dealership once a week.

just need to attach the release cable

The car won't start then it will. I don't think it's the battery because all the lights come on and I tried getting it jumped the first time it wouldn't start so that didn't work the next morning I tried to start it and it did a couple of days later it happened again it wouldn't start walked away for a bit and tried again and it started. What could this mean??

I stopped at a petrol station & to my surprise the fuel door did not open, how can I access the area behind the latch to open the fuel door ?.

Happens through all gears/rpm's and speeds. Will not accelerate without surging/fading

I cant open hood of my car. Hood release cable is attached but wont release hood.

brake system is full off brake liquid and has no other problems. Engine number G4EC. 101hp

Around 92000 miles the car started to have a little rough idle, not bad enough to worry about. But as I let the issue go, it gradually got worse with the car missing while idling pretty much all the time. Replaced the spark plugs 3 times, each time gave me about a week of running well and then back to the rough idle. Replaced both O2 sensors just in case, no change in idle. Eventually my car pretty much choked out at an intersection where I finally got a code, P0303. Did some research online and found there is a common coil issue with this car, so to test the theory, I swapped the coils in #1 and #3, cleared the codes, drove it around the block, check engine light comes on, now I've got a P0301. Common sense seemed to indicate I had a bad coil. Replaced it with an autozone coil. Car ran awesome for almost exactly 2 weeks, which leads us to present day, and it's starting to idle rough again. Research online again seems to indicate that this model and year has major coil issues, with folks having to constantly replace the coils. This doesn't seem legit so I'm searching for an answer to why the coils are going bad. Please help!

the more u drive it the more often it happens expecially when waiting in a line up like at timmys
