This car is my dream car and is at a good price just wanted to know what this is all about???

Thanks Katherine

I hear a squeaking noise when my front wheels move while parking.

i connected them direct to the battery and they kicked on. i disconnected the temperature censor unit and they turned on. the temperature gauge reads in the middle. it will not go any higher, but the water boils out from the reservoir. i am thinking the thermostat is stuck and will not let water through. i am stuck on this. please help.

i have noticed for the last week or so that the cooling fan runs well after the iginition is turned off i was told there may be a problem with the ect sensor. however i am having a hard time locating. one know where it is located and how to remove and replace

My code is reading cylinder 3 misfire I am just wanting to replace that cylinder since, I had a tune up done about 9 months ago thanks

it connects all the hoses between the radiator, thermostat, heater core,

When I drive on the highway, I don't hear the noise, but city driving, and I go over bumps, or turns, I hear a spring like squeak. What is the problem?

When I went to put the key into the door lock, the cylinder just fell into the door. Man, this little things are killing me:(

the passenger side failed first then the drivers side.

when i turn on lights, it doesn't light up on left side of shifter P R N D are all dark

o you think it will be expensive to repair?
have tried STP and other lubes but issues continue.
Help !!!!! Want to sell car but can't with ticking noise.

Every time I get gas it idles rough when it finally starts. About a minute or so later it runs ok.

Last week I took my car in to get several oil leaks fixed, including a gasket they had to take the entire thing apart for, and spent 15 hours on. 3 days after it was fixed, I start driving and the car starts jerking and the check engine light comes on and starts blinking- I slowed down, but even at idle it was running roughly, still jerking, etc. It finally settled out but the light remained on. Today, I turn it on and nothing. Smooth running and no light. I find it something of a coincidence this happens three days after the engine was just partly taken apart. I have previously replaced spark plugs and ignition coils, and the symptoms reminded me of the spark plugs, like a fuel injection issue, but I don't know enough to really know. Could this have something to do with them putting it back together improperly?

When should I get my brake pads replaced?

When do you replace the Timing belt?

The car is burning oil and a head gasket is shot. I am trying to decide to repair or buy another car.

testing @ AutoZone states the code indicates runing too lean front and rear banks? what is the cause and how do i fix it.

at first I thought I was breaking traction but even holding at a steady speed, the rpm's still had a 500 swing. mileage is just over 75k with no service done.

when I take the keys out of the starter the immobolizer light comes on flashing is this normal It turns itself off when I starts the car.

Because of high altitude it is only a 4 cylinder

Checked it autozone error code said it could be the fluid level. Checked fluid level was pretty low refilled it but think there is a leak.

Just not getting fire to the altenator

it is plastic and screw under the engine and oil pan the screw are there but the shield is gone

The car overheated, check engine light was on, Code P0126 (Coolant Temp insufficient stable operation) was set twice, and Code P0128 (Coolant Temp below regulating Temp) was set. Any ideas as to the likely culprit for all 3 events happening?

it came on last night & now goes off after cranking up & then comes on & stays on, whats up?
