i just bought this car used from a wholesale dealer

All of the bulbs have been checked and are not burnt. When I turn the lights on at night the rear running lights and dashboard lights only work when the brakes are engaged. What could the problem be and how much will the repairs cost?

noisy belts they have been replaced recently

its a 2000 montero Sport 3.0,

went all the way the to past 16V, which on this car is over charging. The digital compass and tempeture would go off and on. When ever I can to a stop light and was just setting, not under throttle it would all go back to normal. Does anyone have a clue what would be caudsing this?

What do I do? I when I press on the brake I have no brake lights at all.

Is the cruise control in a Montero Sport ES a fuse? if so where is the fuse located?

2002 Montero Sport ES

these problems seem to be common of a montero sport, but confuse mechanics. just replaced a totally dead battery, then had the alternator tested as well. these now work fine, also replaced the 60amp volt. the car also burns through oil really fast and we have to top it off like every 200miles, the car has 286000 on it.

they could only find 2. are their 4 or are they just retarded. i never had a problem with it before and have never did any mods to my car. how do you add 2 more o2 sensors confused please help

oxygen sensors are out

The old one had chunks knocked off the edges. It seemed like extreme wear. The mechanic din't install it right and when I got to the shop, the pin wasn't even there anymore.

I was told by a friend I have a cracked heater core, I don't know! I have what looks like steam or smoke & the smell of the radiator coming thru the vents on the interior. Also I have what looks like corrosion & rust in the radiator reservoir.

Took my car to have the valve cover gaskets replaced because of an oil leak..Went to pick it up and they tell me the power steering pump went out..It was working fine when I dropped it off.could they have done something to it? It makes an awful noise!

has 200,000 + miles , just had new starter , new water pump , time and belt, ,but whenever i come to a stop with the vehicle in drive it cuts off unless i put it in neutral and give it gas. Usually if it is in park will not cut off. The alternator was also bad so replaced it thinking it may have had something to do with it stalling. Still stalling help

I took my car to the shop on Saturday, I asked them to do my tune up & major service,they go to do the work and come tell me that there is oil where my spark plugs so i asked what does that mean, the guy say will im going to have to replace your valve cover gasket, so they do that and i go to get my car an i here this knocking sound im like what the heck ,the guy at the shop say now we have to replace your cadillac converter on the driver side...well in my mind im thinking my car was not sounding like that when i drop it off... Im so upset well.... my question is, Is it something they done or was it something that was about to happen?

service enngine light is on and read out indicates O2 senor is bad. Thanks

have checked fuses and bulbs all good need to know where to start next

My power steering went out and battery light came on while driving last week. I pulled over and shut engine down. Opened hood and saw belts loose or off. Drove approx. 1/4 apparently they had removed this bolt then and claimed it was already broken but had enough treads left to reuse along with some lock
tite. After pulling in I turned engine off and told mechanic what had just happened. Little while later he started my car and drove it under a bay to look at problem then restarted with second guy under hood. A piece of metal flew out and hit the guy so they shut it down and told me what happened.
The next day I was told they found the broken off crank bolt under the vehicle and that the treads in crankshaft had been damaged beyond repair. They think I will need a new crankshaft or rebuilt engine. They are saying no liability on their parts since bolt had been broken two years earlier when they replaced a timing gear that had broken. I believe they did not properly inform me then or now and they should assume part or all the liability to repair my vehicle.

The truck slowly lost power and then died and will not restart

My truck blows cold air when the rpms are below 2000. The blower motor works. I tried changing the thermostat and that didnt fix it. Fluid levels are good. I dont understand what else it may be. Please help.

When I unlock or lock my doors from using the unlock button on my door, the left side door makes a loud sound similiar to a buzzer or alarm. There is no alarm system on my car.

everytime i start the engine shortly after within seconds you get a strong gas fume smell, not an exhaust smell but more of a gasoline smell, any ideas as to why that is?
i have taken it to the repair shop a few times for brakes and other assorted things yet none of the mechanics say anything about it like it is normal or something.

got up the other morning and went to warm the truck and after 20 mins got in and the truck was not warm, had to leave so went to take the kid to school and the heater started blowing, it does everytime i am driving but idling goes back to cool air, what can be done to fix it?
i have checked the coolant levels and those are right and on the money
