The paneling around the gear shift sometimes gets really hot in the summer...like you can feel the heat radiating off it. Is that concerning?

My gas reader will tell me I'm down 12 gallons, but I put in 10 gallons and it fills the tank.

What signs and symptoms should I look for?

I went in the fuse box and undid the EFA switch 15 for a bit, popped it back in, and it didn't do anything. I don't want to have to unplug the negative terminal each time and reset the computer settings.

Just got the tires balanced and that helped a bit, but it still vibrates going over 65 mph. Anything else I should look at?

What should i do to repair this problems

Won't start

They are round and have a yellow tint to them but i dont believe its a bulb and i dont have the owners book for the car

I just replaced the engine with a low milage engine imported from Japan last week. The mechanic delivered the car with the check engine light on, and stated he can figure it out but it could be the knock sensor. After 2 days and total of 10 miles of driving the car would not run meaning it would start, but stalled . I kept my foot on the pedal mostly to get home but when rpm reached 1000 or so it stalled. Took a code reading of 55 and 71. Could you help me fix this because the great mechanic stated NO WARRANTES, so I wonder why!!! Hmmm.

White smoke always comes out the tail pipe every time the car sits for a few hrs or over night evertime I turn it on, it's always a quick good smoke and then disappears but the car runs well. ..should I worry?

This only happens when the outside temp is over 80 degrees. When I turn off the car and restart it the lights go away. Sometimes they stay off but when I start driving again , they may or may not come on again.

AC light blinking not getting cold I change one relay so far underhood sis AC still blinking what to do next and does it have that magnet CL Magneton CLT relay Onnit

Has anyone else gotten this unwelcome surprise ?

Car overheatsp

My AC stopped working. The AC light on the dash is steady and green, no blinking. The cabin filter is fine. The fan relays are also fine. However, I drove the car on a hot Houston day on the highway and the cooling fan on the driver side did not go on. The one of the passenger side was on. Could this fan have failed and is that why the AC is not going on. I had a cooling fan fail on a Chevy Cavalier and to protect the engine the computer would not allow the AC to turn on.
