It has a slight miss when it is in drive.I took it in, they changed the plugs, cleaned the fuel injectors and now they say it has low compression and needs a valve job.Could it be anything other than the valves??? They quoted a very high price.

37,000 miles,, drives,steers,brakes,good,,, no other noise or concerns


i changed the front brakes of my pontiac vibe 09 and after i drove for a minute the traction control system light came up and the car brakes and there is a noise from the front of the car.since then it keeps happening

Check engine, traction control is engaged, and traction control failure lights are on. Radio will not work. Car will only idle and won't run faster than 10mph.

So i took my vibe in for the airbag recall when i got the car back the "VSC Off" light was flashing and the Traction control light was on . Also the car was automatically engaging the traction. so when you drove the traction control was engaging thinking that we were skidding on the road . The airbag recall could it affect the VSC and the traction control , did the mechanic pull/thug on the wiring for it . I read that the spiral cable assembly and ffc were touched in the airbag recall someone please help thank you

There were fog lights after market on the car but broke. I saw the wire hanging down so I used the same wire. This wife went to the fuse box, a green fuse, so I hooked it to that and the other wire to ground. Turned it on, it came on but then turned off and I couldn't turn it on anymore. Radio works, lights work, when I turn the key, I hear something like a fan.

I know it sounds kind of stupid at first, but when I crank my car the lights come on immediately. Dark, light, doesn't matter. However, I have the light switch in the off position...as in it literally says off. So I'm not sure why any lights are on. There seems to be absolutely no way to turn them off at all other than to turn off the car. Please if someone knows a way to disable them let me know. Thanks.

I had a junkyard motor put into my car February 2013. The engine burns excessive oil. A year ago a man came out and helped me put xp performance plugs into the engine to stop the problem. It worked. Several months ago every now and tehn I would feel a shudder under me sometimes even in park. A tow company got a hold of my car recently and on my way back home I was losing power and could barewly get the engine over bridges. I am pulling a new code P0442. I never pulled that code before until after the tow company got my car. I am not currently pulling amisfire code. I put stp into a full gas tank recently and noticed a slight improvement. I still can't pick the car up to speed over 2 rpms without it bumping under me. What do you think it could be? My guess is a hose has come loose or was pulled on by the tow company. It is doing this often

Checked ac relay on wheel ok but someone said there are 2 of them. Any other ideas. I can't believe I had ac 12 hours earlier. Freon is ok

The hatch is open an the latch is lock an the key or the button will not unlock it

Engine turns over but like it won't fire up.

the air bag indicator light came on. Vehicle has 80,844 miles. If vehicle is turned off and then restarted light will go out but come back on after a few minutes.

The first five mins was on city roads so the speed was like 30 to 35 miles but then I went onto the freeway when I found I couldn't get the speed up. Then I switched back to the D gear. But the whole process, the rpm never went near to redline. It was around 5k to 6k. The redline is 7k to 8k and above.

Changed the rear wheel hub assembly and the ABS wheel speed sensor. I've researched everything I can find but can't find any information on just the all wheel drive light.

now when you go 60 mph it vibrates hard when you step on brakes. It happens all the time now. It just started vibrating while I'm driving 60 mph. I'm afraid to drive it.

The left blinker dashboard light stays on solid after engine dies. There was no sign that anything was wrong. I started my car to warm it up. 10 minutes later when I came out to leave, it wasn't running but all the lights were working. When I tried to start it again, it started and then the engine stops running 3 seconds later.

I would also like to know the location of the fuel filter and the fuel pump.
My car has no power and is blowing white smoke, its hard to start and when you push on the gas pedal it misses and stalls out

they burnt out.
