Recently, my vehicles windshield wipers stop working. The washer fluid and the wipers just completely stopped working and didn't make any noises as if the motor was bad. So i took matters into my own hands assuming it was a bad fuse. Started pulling and checking fuses under the steering column. No bad fuses were found so now i am thinking its a bad switch? But besides that, I went to drive my car and it was now stuck in park? so i forced the button in the shifter in to get the car to the auto parts store to figure out my problem. The guy asked me to go check and see if my brake lights were working after i told him my situation and to my surprise, they weren't working. He immediately assumed it was a brake light switch. Bought a new one replaced it and still my car is stuck? Please HELP with my wipers and my shifter!!!!

I purchased this car and have no access code, how do i get one. The interior lights go on every 20-70 seconds and stay on for 20 secs. I have disconnected the battery to hopefully reset it and now it is worse. What can i do??

Anyone know whether the size of 53mm or 59 mm in identifying the right unit, refers to the diameter of the metal casing or the width between the retaining bolts.

The next question is, how do you choose! The price on line varies from $80 to $212, anyone know the answer or recommend a supplier.



Fuel mileage has dropped. On initial take off there is a slight stumble. Code indicates a vacuum leak. Manifold tests do not indicate leaking gaskets.

I had a fuel pressure sensor curcit malfunction code come up. So I replaced the fuel pressure regulator, but when I but a fuel pressure guage on it I noticed that as soon as I turn the ignition off the fuel pressure drops to zero and it won't start until the pressure gets back to 40 psi so 3 times to start. what the is one way check valve called that hols residual pressure in the system

how do you take off the tail lights

no fuel pump prime,but have power to the fuel pump plug but no power at the pump,and its a new pump.

Drivers side power window quit working. I lifted the control buttons out of the console wriggled some wires and it started working. Worked for about a month. It quit again this time in the down position. Was the temporary fix a coincidence or should I further chase a wiring problem? Or maybe I jar-ed loose a stuck motor? I do hear a clicking noise (similar to a relay) when I try to operate the window. I also need directions for tearing into the door to go after the motor or chase the wiring problem.

The large hose from the radiator branches off into two hoses that go into the engine. Which one leads to the thermostat housing. and how to change it?

When driving up a hill and I try to accelerate fast to pass or climb a large hill the vehicle begins to skip, jurk and looses power. The harder I push the gas the worse it gets and slower it goes. Anyone have a suggestion? Had it in a shop for 6 hours Saturday. They ruled out: EGR, Intake, fuel pressure, wires, plugs and airflow.

My husband noticed the battery light (a new battery) so took it in to see why. They tested the electrical system first. Then told him the car needed an alternator, which took three hours (may be because they needed the parts to come from another location) and gave an estimate of $800+ We REALLY need to know if that was a fair price, which incl. labor. I don't have the breakdown of the two prices. I recall it had to be new because he tried to get a used one.

When I went to remove the rotor on my mother's 2000 continental instead of a pin i found a sleeve on the spindle nut. Can't think of a way to describe it other than it has a tab on each side of the nut. Any idea how to remove it to get the rotor off or am i even making sense? Thanks
