My speedometer does not work. Could useing an I-Phone and APPS. to monitor the speed have caused the atenator?

Removeing altenator under the car can be more expensive?

I really cannnot tell how much gas I have in it and have run out without warning. When I first got the car in Feburary the gas indicator would read I was low and a light came on. Now the gas guage is all over the place and no warning. Is there a fuse that might regulate the proper amount in the tanl . Also the ignition swith is tricky so when I did not turn it completely off I had to get it jumped. Did this perhaps affect the computer?

I feel a little hiccup in the engine from time to time but nothing more. What could this be? I have a rebuilt engine and turbo about 1.5 years old, new compressor and clutch so do not expect any issues.

Does anyone know a reliable mechanic in or around San Jose Ca?

Front axel boots are torn need to know how to replace them?

The sound seems to be getting louder. I can't stand it.

So it started with the belt making noises and me putting off the simple task of adding tension. Yesterday, out of nowhere, the engine began vibrating so bad the car shook. I drove it home and parked it. It feels like driving over cobblestone roads. Today I start it up to take a look at what I can diagnose and the oil light comes on. Yes, it is at the proper level and has been kept that way.

So.... Where do I start? What can I eliminate immediately to begin to isolate the problem? What should I focus on?

happened once in a while, now this weekend, seems to happen more frequently, have to make wide turns to avoid the power loss. No check engine light on, battery tested full power.

This problem has been happening for awhile. The floor is wet from rain and I can't find source of the leak. Sunroof, windows and doors seem OK. What about the antenna thing on the roof? it looks like there may be a spot under the dash and next to the console that possibly looks wet. Please help - this is driving me crazy. Thanks to all in advance.

Happens only when it rains. The floor is wet not on the sides of the floor.

i was wondering if someone can help me resolve this issue i washed the motor on my saab know it has a misfire and the engine light comes on changed the spark plugs but it doing the same thing and was wondering if it could be the baccum hose cause the one it had was remended with black tape i replaced it but dont think its working so can any one help me asp thanks.

thebreason im asking is that i washed the motor and know its misfiring and the engine light comes on can some one help thanks.

I just want to clear it

The car shuts off while driving. Happens more between 4th and 5th gear, but has happen at a slower speed. The steering column locks and the car can't steer to pull off road. After sitting a while, it will start, while pumping gas pedal. I have had experience with fuel pump & fuel injector failure for GMC trucks, and they will not start once the truck dies. So I am unsure if it is really fuel pump or fuel injector. I am unsure if it is a electrical or sensor problem pertaining to the fuel supply. The Gearbox, engine, abs errors all come on.

Car ran fine before the tow. just picked it up off my sister in law. After about a 45 min tow it wont start. i replaced the cps and it started up fine for about 5 mins then shut off. Fuel pump doesnt sound like its turning on. Car sat for about 6 months with 3/4 tank of gas. could be waterdown gas or clogged fuel filter. Any ideas to test this by yourself?
