Hello. My 9 year old car radio turns on after I hit a bump (moderate and larger bumps - pot holes, etc..) in the road. I am hoping this is a common problem and you guys know how I can fix it myself. Thanks.

I have a 2001 Hyundai Sonata with 158,000 miles. I just had an alternator installed. Should I have the timing belt changed?

There is a noticeable clicking sound sometimes when I turn right or left.

I know the location of the fuel filter and have been able to disconnect the fuel lines and wiring successfully. My problem is that I have not been able to rotate the cover to get at the filter. Two questions: Is a special tool required? When it has been replaced is a gasket sealer suggested? Thanks chuck

Heat comes out of the top vents even if the control is set to feet only. Doesn't seem like enough air comes out at your feet as it should.

diagnostic code was P2187 system to lean at idle speed ( blank 1 )

when I start the engine, it revs up, lights come on then after 3 seconds, the engine dies. it does not kick or sputter. It just suddenly dies. What is wrong?

had the egr cleaned, dpfe diferential feedback sensor replaced, replaced egr vaccuum, selenoid drive cycle performed twice, and the the car still failed emissions twice....and idea what is actually wrong? thanks

my ac recently stopped blowing cool air even after recharging it and started making odd noises when i would turn it on. a couple of days ago a strong burnt rubber smell came from under the hood. it only smelled for a few minutes but was very strong. a friend said it's maybe the ac compressor. anyone had anything similar happen?


i was just told today that i need timing belt repair(whatever that means)because it squeals when idling and that the tear down would cost $450 plus the repair and parts could be as much as $980, seems outrageous to me, a single mom who lives check to check, looking for a reasonable mechanic in Long Beach

My heater blower fan works only at the slower speeds (1-2). Most site say to replace the heater resistor if only the high speed works. The high speed (4) will work if you physically push the control in and hold it. Not sure what can be wrong. Maybe the switch is bad?
