How can i change the ignition switch without having the keys
Like its going to shut off
Don't happen when car is still and idling. Not noticeable all the time.
My 2002 alero dies while I am driving. It restarts but kills again. No Check engine light. A few times it backfired (I think) while trying different things such as shifting into 1st, 2nd, or 3rd or reving it up in neutral. A loud clunk came from under the car anyway, a few times. Anyone have a clue on how to fix it?
Replace the hazard/turn signal assembly due to signals not working every so often. With turn signal on left or right position it would stop. Push in the hazard switch just slightly and it would work. Now though in the vehicle the turn signal shows proper signal choice (left of right bulbs on dash flash the outside lamps all flash as if the hazard switch has been pushed.
I have changed the resistor,blower motor and switch and still only works on high. Also have checked fuses and relays
stalling out and has a gas smell in the oil
Brand new idle control solenoid.
Sometimes doesn't want to start, the engine sounds like working with 2 or 3 pistons only, I found that definitely the trac off light is related with the engine missfiring behavior, even that I know that trac off should be related with a traction issue, I replaced Ignition modules, sensors, spark plugs, computer, Electronic control module, etc etc, Camshaft or cranskshaft position sensor, the car still doing the same shaking thing, the light is still on. Help please
Intermittently the 2003 Alero will not shut off completely. The engine shuts down but the dash lights and accessories stay on. After jiggling the key for sometimes up to 15 minutes the car will finally turn off completely. The repair shop diagnosed the problem as the ignition switch. The repairs have been done twice (new ignition switch and key) but, the car continues to have a shut down problem. Although it's an intermittent problem, it happens quite frequently.
I have recently replaced the steering pump and the pressure and return hose, but now I see that I'm leaking fluid still but it on the passenger front. Can someone help
Single popping sound heard and felt in steering wheel when turning the steering wheel happens even when car is not moving but I turn the wheels both ways and here a pop turn some more and another pop ect...? Also was driving and all of a sudden my anti lock light and trac off light came on? Pulled over turned car off and back on and lights went out but have came back on? When I first got the car 2 weeks ago I put air in the tires cause they were low on air and As I drove home my tire pressure light came on?
it sometimes starts when its warmer outside.
WENT TO GO BY A NEW BATTERY AND I PUT IT IN THERE AND NOTHING TURNS ON SO IM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY
It used to heat up to normal temp one day stay cool the next now doesn't get hot at all. It blows warm air but not hot even in subzero temperatures lately. Also the fans are on as soon as the car is started even if its cold. I thought maybe the thermostat was stuck open. The check engine light seemed to go off when the temperature goes up to normal which it hasn't done in awhile and it used to go on and off but it said it was gas cap
I have replaced the right front wheel bearing
plugs and fuil filter, thinking maybe coil pack? any ideas?
