Although there is no abnormal sounds, the brake pedal seems softer then normal and goes almost to the floor in order to stop the car. Brake fluid was added but still seems too soft. I was told recently when the tires were replaced that the brake pads were good so is it time for a brake job?

when my heater comes on it starts smelling like rubber burning, then the smell stops, then it will start up again after awhile. What is causing that?

Power window (driver's side) not functioning. Need to install replacement switch. Is this a DIY job or should I leave it to the pros.

It squeals usually every time I turn the wheel all the way in either direction (left and right). Seems to be getting worse as time goes by. Power steering fluid level was actually a little too high. Could too much fluid cause noise? What else could it be?

Nissan Sentra 2006 bought with 28,300 miles
about 3 months ago. About a month ago it started to have problems when I started. It takes up to 3 times turning the
Key before it starts. Also my car has a burnt
Plasdtic smell. When I took it to the mechanic for the
Buyer's check. They told me it was probably
A plastic bag. It has that smell still,
Especially if I've driven in the highway,which I usually do every day.
. The start problem seems to be sometimes better when the weather is col, or if I have to start it soon after I have stopped for a moment.
I dive about 30 mi daily.

My high mounted stop light is not working. I know the type of bulb I need but how do I get to the bulb's location?

Just today I noticed my car was idling loudly as soon as I started it up, and it started making a growling noise when I started driving it.

When I was on the highway, a couple of times it would slow down without me braking or taking my foot off the gas. It didn't stop, just slowed down. It also shakes a lot when it gets up to 60. I know the shaking is an alignment problem, but I'm worried about the random slowing down.

when light switch is on and brake is applied the driver side brake lamp does not come on and the tail light on that side goes out. when light switch is off then brake light works fine.

im having trouble locating my crankshaft sensor. any hints that can help me locate it

Hi! I see that you have Front Struts for an estimate... but how much for rear struts? I read that rear struts are cheaper for the parts, but a bit higher in labor. Is the estimate about the same? I have a 2002 nissan sentra. Thanks!
