My blower fan motor stopped working when I changed temperature level from cold to hot. I checke dteh fuse and it is not blown. What is the most probable cause and easiest way to troubleshoot the problem. Relay, resistor, blower motor?
I have recently had the oil changed in my car topped off all the fluids and filled up the tank. The service engine soon light comes on and goes off with no pattern that I can detect. There are shorts in the dash, the fasten seat belt light comes on and off too and the radio works only sometimes. The car runs fine and there is nothing that I can find wrong with it. I am on a very fixed income and can't pay to have someone plug it into a machine. Unless I absolutely have to. The auto parts stores no longer carry the OBDI (to help customers). I am thinking that maybe I will just disconnect the battery and let the computer reset itself. Am I completely crazy to do this ??

It is a nice car to look at, but that all I can do for now until I pin point the problem.From my experience,it seems to be a sensor. It cuts off suddenly.Please help.

Why does my Check Engine Soon light keep coming on even after a trusted repair service resets the car's CPU? The car runs fine. I was told they could remove the dashboard and go into the electrical system that way for repairs, but it would cost hundreds of dollars. I rejected that idea. For now, I am driving with the engine light on all the time and having regular maintenance performed.
The windshield wipers don't work and the washer fluid does not spray. Does anyone know what it could be? I replaced the fuse and check the current at the motor plug but it still is not working.
I actually own a low mileage 1987 Olds Ciera and purchased it new on Dec. 15, 1986. December 2008 I was driving from Seattle to Portland, OR when the water pump went out. Repair shop at time told me that since I had orginal water pump and radiator, I should replace both as I still needed to drive another 11 hours to go to California. 8 months later water pump failed again Because I wasn't driving this car decided to wait until the following March to get it replaced. This shop gave me part and said it was defective new water pump that had be installed. NOW the second water pump has failed. I have not taken it anywhere yet. The car is clean, not abused, and has about 127,000 miles. Can two new water pumps fail when I haven't driven more than 4000 miles since the lst replacement was installed?
I put the car in gear, and while it's idling there's a noise that seem's to be coming fron the transmission. The noise goes away when I apply the throttle.

Just wanted some outsider opinions on my situation. I have a 95 Olds Ciera with the 3100 eng. 206,000 miles. Needs head gasket job. Probably looking at around 1500 to 2 grand. Zero resale value on the car, so it's keep or junk it time. What do you think? B/c of this problem I currently have no heat and I live in the upper Midwest, so that sucks.

I was driving on the highway, going about 70mph on cruise, when I heard a loud whining noise coming from my engine. The noise was similiar to when your brakes are worn out, and it quickly gerew in volume. After about 3 seconds, which gave me time to hear it and start to pull off, there was a loud PANG and the engine died. I was able to freewheel on to the side of the road. When I opened the hood, a VERY small amount of smoke puffed out from the rear of the engine. All the fluids were fine and there was nothing leaking, nor was there any visual damage to the engine. I've asked around and the two most probable causes are either my timing belt(chain) or a slipped bearing. Any ideas before I start tearing my engine apart blindly?
turned on the heater but nothing happens. Does not blow or make any noise. Does not seem to turn on at all
