Just seemed to stop running the power steering fluid through and actually presses through the cap after heating up. I dont see any movement as to show it trying to suck down, (no movement in fluid) is there a pump accessable to replace? Also there dont seem to be any kinks or leaks.

The stereo/climate control wire harness was plugged back in, with the battery connected. everything digital quit on both stereo and climate control, but manual knobs still work. (tuner/volume/vent and fan knobs)

Is there supposed to be clear brown silicone on the A terminal on blower motor resistor on 2001 Oldsmobile alero

How can I get my window up temporarily until I have the money to fix it?

does not work on ac,hot or coldselections nor on windshield defrost, floor, this just happened today 12/1/2016

Check engine light came on with an evap code (leak). I can hear the fuel pump come on (buzzing) when I try to start the car. I twisted the gas cap and clicked it 5x after filling it. Next day it wouldn't start. The car didn't give me any problems except for the check engine light. Check engine light came on once before and turned off after a few days. This time it came on, got a diagnostic next day, I wouldn't drive it, went to fill up gas tank and 3rd day it wouldn't start.

My engine is toast i just found a 2003 olds alero 2.2 ltre 4cylinder for 500$ will it fit in my 2001 alero 4 cylinder

Recentry I noticed the a/c button would switch itself off. In a minute it would come on again. Over the next few days it became more frequent ,. And when I tried to open the window it wasn't working. The air came back on I was able to open electric windows. The car is now in the shop with stumped mechanics. It's too dangerous to drive in this florida heat, I was almost over come by the heat and locked windows. If there hadn't been a place to pull over. I would have been overcome.

Installed water pump and thermostat now car idles fast and tries to die when you stop also sounds rough when idling. Could i have the timing off? It didn't sound this way before,although it would idle rough at stop lights but never die.The only time it did was when it over heated and it shut itself down.

Replaced fuel pump 2 days before this started.

Lever is loose. Has worked intermittently. Steering wheel is now stuck in fully upright position. Is this a relatively easy home fix? If so, how?

The idle on my car is odd. When I'm idling, I can actually see the RPM gauge shoot up sometimes like I reved the car, but I did not. I know it needs a tune up, but my husband says this is not caused by that. Any ideas what is happening or what could be done to fix it? Is this normal for this car?

The blinker switch randomly makes the clicking noise (like when you have signaled to turn) while driving. It sometimes happens often, and sometimes I might go a few days without hearing it. The blinker was randomly not working so my repair shop replaced the blinker switch. Now, the blinker is working fine, but we still hear the random clicking, so it doesn't appear to be the actual blinker switch. Any idea what to do?

The beep that you hear when you open the door or try to get out of the car with the keys left in comes on when I back up. Sometimes, it happens randomly when I'm driving, like when I turn. Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this? Thanks.

I've noticed that my gas mileage has gone down. What can I do to make it better?

I have added more coolant but the car keeps overheating.

The car shakes while idling or at slow speeds. It gets better at higher speeds.

Turns of the key for it to start

It starts up good it powers up I can drive it but when it gets really hot out it starts making that ticking noise

Seemed to lose power and died. The service engine soon and the trac off light both came on. The car did restart but when I turned the air on it stalled and died again. Both lights also stayed on. Please help.

If I give it gas it will start and as long as I keep my foot on the gas pedal it will continue running but soon as I take my foot off the pedal it cuts off.
