What would cause this problem.

when i shut off engine and take key out the car starts up again and i have to put key back in and turn to on and then shut off and take key out to shut the engine off

Our power steering went out, was just replace within the month and the battery drained to dead and car stopped. We were told the AC compressor was going bad and needed to be replaced. Are these all on the same belts? How can we tell if we are being sold a AC compressor when me may not need one? We paid $500 to replace the power steering pump...your site says should be about #350??

There is no pressure or resistance at all when I pump the brake pedal. There is brake fluid in the reservoir.
I have no idea at all as to any other brake problems that he might have had in the past.

Any suggestions on the problem and solution?

with auto temp control unit when set to ac air should be blowing out of vents but instead blows out of the defrosters.Sometimes it switches back and forth and sometimes when driving on an incline it will switch back and forth. Could the mode actuator be defective?

What is the proper way for testing the charcoal vapor canister to see if it is operating as it should. The OBD is displaying code P1451. Already replace the gas cap and Evap Control System Vent Solenoid with no luck. As I stated previously the car is running fine and the gas mileage is normal but the check engine light remains on. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I have an 02 Mercury Sable. I closed the hood and the grill pop all the way out and onto the ground. Upon further inspection I noticed most of the clips and brackets are broken. I assume from years of slamming the hood close. Is there a puffy, glue of some sort I could use to mount the grill back on? It's still in pretty decent shape so I would hate to have to replace it. Thanks in advance!

I went by the local O'Reilly and the machine put on it. The code is P1451 and it states possible control system canister solenoid. I have changed that and also bought a new gas cap. There is no gas smell or performance in the way the car performs. I'm on a limited budget so I have to do as much of the work as I can. My next task is to change the charcoal vapor canister. Can anyone tell me the exact location of the canister and possibly the way to test if it is bad before replacing please? Had the light turned off and it came right back on. I'm stumped at this point. Thanks in advance!

looks like its not getting gas

when I turn left brake fluid on the ground from front left wheel

The alarm on my 2002 Mercury Sable keeps going off all the time for no reason how can I adjust the sensitivity or what do I do to fix it

I brought my car in because it was misfiring and running sluggish. The mechanic said it was a cylinder issue and I needed to replace the spark plugs (possibly coils too).. I got the car back and its still misfiring and he only replaced 1 plug. Am I being ripped off? I appreciate any advise.

3.0 how do you get to number 1 2 spark plug

Car drives fine, transmission finds all gears while driven but when I come to a stop it goes out of gear as if it were in neutral. I have to shut car off/restart or simply put it in park and then back into drive for it to re-engage into gear.

It shakes alot what is wrong

i bought the car used, and need to know how I go about getting the recalls fixed.

i've brought a new battery.and altanator it still shuts off

I have done all the things everyone has told me to do on here and now the battery light if flashing again now what??

I can drive it clear across town and it will start blinking like crazy. It has been checked three times and it checks out good could the voltage regulator in it be acting up??
