Due to having so much electrical problems. I'd like to get my GPS plugged into my lighter and working. A repair shop said it will cost me $100.00!!! There must be a cheaper way of replacing this. Need help....

I'm putting an '89 Formula back together. The engine runs but the idle is low and jumps from 6 to 800 rpms. I tried a new maf sensor (that's the code I'm getting) but that didn't work. Spark plugs, wires, injectors are all new. I have read of others having this same problem. Could it be the EGR solenoid? Thanks for your help.

My G/F has a 2004 grand am,to me it loks like it is leaking cooling fluid on the right front. She uses some other kind of coolant other than reg anti freeze, but I can tell it is a mixture of water.

To save money, i wanted to see if you might could help me through this or should I have something else checked before I take on this task. Thanks

1998 Pontiac Sunfire, leaking antifreeze, but not sure where the leak is. The coolant is dripping off of a flat metal piece that runs around the oil pan on the passenger side of the car (when laying underneath it). But as for where the leak is coming from , I have no clue. Someone told me to change the freeze plugs on it. Could that cause this problem and if so where is the freeze plug located on this particular engine? (2.2L)

I have put my scanner on it and there are no error codes when it works and when it doesnt. some times its been off for 3 days other times they come back on in a few hrs. she has been driving and not useing the radio or windows and look down and the radio lights will be out and she checks the windows and they are out too.
