The button on gearshift doesn't seem to work, and it won't go higher than 3rd gear. 140,000miles. When problem first started it would come and go, but now seems to be permanent.

My brother-in-law took apart the top of the engine to replace the valve cover gasket and then decided to hose down the engine while some of the connections were apart. Now we have an issue with the hold light coming on and the transmission stuck in the hold position. Prior to this I didn't have any issues with the transmission and feel as though there is an issue with the hold sensor that controls the hold button. The problem occurs when the hold light is on or off. As a result the car will only get as high as second gear and revs all time trying to get into 3rd gear. We've tried resetting any codes or taking the battery off to see if that will reset the computer with no luck so far. If anybody has any answers I appreciate it.

Pricing for the part and labor and what are signs that its failing cuz my engine light came on and one of the codes reads po750

Had a Auto Zone plug into my car. It showed that something is wrong with the manifold blower or something like that. That's why I asked if there was any recalls on it.

What else might it be

it may start and run for two to three days and then will not start at all for about three or four days. what could be my problem?

I was pulling onto a parking spot and the car automatically accelerator. My foot was nothe on the gas peDallas. I had to slam on the break before hitting the sign in front of me.

Alternated, battery, powersteering hose, spark plugs, spark plug wires, the engine runs fine

While driving down the freeway my car desides it wants to drop the RPMs to zero and stall out. It will also do it at a stop light or sighn. It isnt a constant thing it happens once or twice a day then it drives fine. And it normally only does it when the check engine li check t is on. I havent ran the new codes yet but the one that keeps poppi g up is P0446. Any help or advice would be very much appropriated. Thanks for your time.

I believe it's coming from the driver side front under the car. It only does it once and I can feel it in the floorboard. It will be louder if I'm on an uphill stopped and then accelerate. I had to get the control arm in the front replaced and I put 4 new tires on it about 2 weeks ago. Please advise what this may be as I feel like my axel is going to fall out while I'm driving. (I'm over exaggerating...I hope!)

Trying to sell my Van. My motor locked up. I placed a add and person wants to know if it has a overhead cam? We can't find anything in our book.

I need to smog this kIa spectra. Its a 2004. When trying to plug in the little orange code reading, no power comes thru to the code reading. What main fuse could control the power to the reading?

My neighbor read the codes for me and it said something about the o2 sensor and missing but he cleared them and then unplugged the upstream o2 for a few and it started but then died again and now it won't start at all

Apparently, the plastic cover that runs over the top of my engine, protecting the coils, is missing. So, when my bf pressure washed the engine compartment, water submerged the spark plug wire boots. Like I said in an earlier post, I drove it about 6 miles as it progressively began sputtering, hesitating, knocking and CEL began flashing. Parked it... and smelled rotten eggs. Read a code P0301. Bf checked the coils and wires and found everything submerged. #1 boot was not sealed as it should have been. Bf dried everything and sealed #1 boot to spark plug. Cleared the code, car ran fine. Later on, took the car to the store and all the symptoms, incl. flashing CEL, and rotten egg smell returned. Could it have damaged the coil pack?

Four days ago, bf pressure washed engine compartment then ran it at idle for 10 min. to prove everything was ok. Next time I drove it (apx. 3 miles), a little hesitation and a bit of sputter that mildly progressed and smoke came from under hood on pass. side windshield that smelled like oil. Drove again same distance, barely made it home and smelled like rotten eggs. Chug, chug, putt, boom, chuga chuga. Had to put it in park at stop sign to prevent it from dying. Water comes spitting out of exhaust pipe when I start it up. CEL blinks when driving but not idling. Prior to all of this, CEL was on (ever since having MAF sensor replaced last year) issuing a code P0101 or P0100, I cant remember which one it was. Regardless, since washing the engine, new problems have occurred. Now, I'm stuck here waiting for bf to bring computer diagnostic code reader (he must have forgotten cuz its been 2 days) and 2 guys that are not mechanics are coming in the a.m. to fix it as per my roommate. Sorry but, this spells DOOM to me. Am I overreacting? Any ideas would be appreciated.

The drivers side guide assembly is about an inch behind the passenger side when fully closed. The passenger side closes full and then lifts slighty like it is supposed to. The drivers side won't go that far forward.
