questions

The xmission of the 2001 is not running well and i,ve got a 1992 in good condition. I'ld like to replace it.

My dashboard lights are out and also my tail lights are out. What could it be? i did replace the front small light bulbs but nothing seems to happen, All the gauges work its just the lights.

Bedn at the repair shop over a week now, they say its asecurity issue

have spark at plugs and power at inj puls still will not fire,have fuel presser can start by priming intake with fuel

It jerks anytime I start, in the morning, red lights, stop signs, anytime at all.

warm air comes out during idling, but not when driven

Is a transmission repair or time to junk it?

Need to replace the power steering hose and feel that it might need a special tool to replace. If that is the case than I need to have a mechanic replace the hose. What is the labor cost to replace the power steering hose?

The heater changes on its own all the time. I set it to hot then it never gets hot, it also chnages to a cooler temp or sometimes it gets hot then changes to cold or a higher setting or lower setting or it changes modes like floor or floor and vent or floor only or defrost? It does this all byI need heat with the wether here in Colordo? I checked the fuse box under the steering my fuses are fine. PLease help???

replacing the knock sensor need new bolt, what size is the bolt..size and length

temp gage moveing up while this was happening but never over heated

If I find a used automatic transmission will an auto repair garage typically install? If so anyone have an estimate for what a garage would charge to do this? I live in Memphis, so if anyone has any thoughts or recommendations they would be greatly appreciated.

I believe its my heater hose that is cracked. My engine is over heating. I put coolant and I can see it squirting out from a tube behind my oil filter. I've located the tube and confirmed there is a crack in it.

the drops rest on top of my engine oil pan. it doesn't leak from a visible hose.

Replcing the sensor was step one. Is there a common issue other than the sensors which might bring up these codes?

license plate light is also out.brake lights work. headlamps work and gauges work. also the cruise control stopped working but i believe that's a seperate issue. thanks 4 your help.

After a few struggles, it finally fired up this time. Almost sounds like it was struggling to get fuel. Its not the battery or alternator. I went ahead and changed the fuel filter, cleaned up the battery, the terminals, and checked the grounds. I did have the check engine light on at the time, but the manufacturer's code said it was a small emissions leak. Could these problems be related? The car has started every time since changing the fuel filter today, but the true test will be letting it sit overnight and trying in the morning, as that was the same situation when it last wouldn't start. If I have to I'll change the fuel pump but would like to check all other possibilities first. I did run it on E for a little too long prior to my last fuel up before the starting problem. Obviously that's not a good idea but have been told that could have led to the problem. The car has roughly 95000 miles on it and I bought 2 1/2 years ago with 51000 miles. I would be very appreciative of any insight, advice, or suggestions.

will not unlock with the key

I got an oil change on my car yesterday, about 5 hours later oil was everywhere car was smoking I drove about 2 miles on it...they called me back in after they changed it because their was a big puddle underneath my car after they were done, the guy checked it and said it was fine

The car ran great before I replaced the altenator I had the battery disonnected for two days only removed the alternator plug and ground wire on the altenator and bracket

fuze blows as fast as you put it in also no dashlights

i have to wait 15 minutes before turning the car on again after driving

Belt squeals when starting engine below 20 degrees.

I'm looking at buying a used car that looks to be in good condition. What would be the average time that this car would need a clutch replacement? It has 112K miles.

Also, do these cars need timing belts and if so, at what mileage intervals?

I'm trying to anticipate if there are any major expenses I would have to deal with beyond the purchase price of $1200.

This is the standard / base model vehicle

The AC stopped working and my wife was told by a shop that we had to replace everything ($2500) when I was out of town. She told him she didn't want to do that and then he backed it down to a little over $1000. I want to recharge it and see if I can find a leak and work my way from there.

bump/seems to be getting louder

Sometimes they function perfectically and they will not work at all. My mechanic had my car today, could not determine the exact cause. They were working perfectically. He attempted to induce the problem through vibration to included tapping on the wiper motor, and the wipers continued to work. He said that if only he could see them when they are not working,then could he accuately determine the cause. He that the problem is in either the wiper motor or the wiper on and off switch. I have also tried to get clues to the cause. This afternoon, I started the car and fliped the switch. They did nothing. I popped the hood, and tapped on the wiper motor----NO GO. As soon as I dropped the hood----WORKING.

Any help would be appreciated as the repair manuals are hard to find and expensive. Thanks
