Hearing a rubbing sound rear end vehicle.change the rear brakes pads and rotors.

My 2001 Highlander has 2 issues. If I start the engine with the heater on it squeals like a belt issue. Soon as I turn heater off it quits. Sound like a belt? I have an sound similar to an exhaust leak, more like a loud hum. Irritating if sitting in the back seat. A quick check does not appear to be exhaust. Noticed it quiets when turning wheel to the right. Could this be CV? Anyone with a similar problem that's been corrected that could shed some light. $ are tight, trying to avoid unnecessary service call.

Hear humming sound in the rear. Change rear brakes and rotor still hearing humming sound

I had a very small accident where I cornered and the tires slid on ice. I stepped on the brake very hard trying to stop the slide before hitting another car. I still hit the other car with only minor damage to my bumper and none to the other car. I had a very strange problem with the brakes after that. Sometimes the brakes would stop the car with no problem, but the pedel action felt squishy. Other time when the pedal was depressed it was like the brakes were studering and the brakes would sort of grab and throw you against the seat belt. When I took the car in the repair guy told me that I could have damaged the brake pedal pressure switch. I have looked online and can't find a switch by that name. Can you help with any suggestions? I had the pads replaced and now the car stops normally all the time, but my VSC and Trac Off lights on my dashboard stay on all the time. In talking about the lights he came up with the pedal pressure switch idea. Thanks for the help.

My daughter was involved in an accident in her 2007 Highlander. The policeman estimated the speeds at collision at about 30 and 45 miles per hour. She was cut off by someone merging onto the highway at 15 miles an hour. She hit the back of him causing almost $7000 damage to her car. The other car took off when hit so I don't know how much damage was done to his truck. My husband and I are concerned that at those speeds her airbags did not deploy. Thank you so much for your help!!

The driver's side windshield works but the passenger wiper does not move, are these individual motors or are they connected by a common linkage?

The car started making a clicking sound when driving. When I stopped to see what the noise was I put it into park. When I put it back in gear (any gear) the car will not move. The revs drop as it goes from park to drive, it's in gear but won't move

The water pump on my highlander needs to be replaced. What is a fair price to pay?

Only occasionally first thing in the morning without warmup there is a strong vibration apparently from rear of auto within the 1st 1/4 to 1/2 mile. It stops after that. It is, however becoming more and more frequent.
All fluides have recently been changed including tranny.

Where is and how do you replace PCV value on 2003 Highlander, 4 cylinder?

My 2003 Highander has started to jerk at various speeds. I have felt it as low as 35 mph and on the freeway at a steady speed of 65-70 and several times at speeds between. This happens under steady speeds and the car jerks as if it is an engine miss but definitely feels as if it is in the drive train, not a miss. I can drive for an 60+ miles and not have one episode, other times it happens 5-6 times in 20-30 miles. Always when hot so far. Is this something a simple filter and fluid change might help, other service? or transmission replacement likely needed?

When I apply the brakes, the steering wheel vibrates. Is this a brake issue or strut issue?

Out of the blue, my dashboard lights have gone haywire! When I turn on the headlights, the dashboard lights (including radio dial, clock) turn off. I checked the fuses, and they all seem fine. What could cause this mystery?

If you are replacing timing chain, water pump, and serpentine belt at the same time should labor hours be adjusted so as not to be charged double. For example you would be removing/replacing some of the same parts when completing these services.

IS IT TIMMING BELT OR TIMING CHAIN

The ac/heater control knob no longer operates the temperature in the vehicle. It remains at 82 degrees - the knob turns but does not regulate the temperature away from 82 degrees.

Do the engine coolant cleaners they sell e.g. really work or is a wasteof five bucks? Vehicle has 120k miles.

what will I be told to replace for water pump repacement

What type timing belt does this car have. Chain or belt

$1400 to replace a catalytic converter, does this seam reasonable?

I was decelerating and coming to stop on a very slight decline and the engine just suddenly shut off. I glanced at the dash and all the sensor indicator lights were on. I pulled over to the side and the engine started up again with no problem. This is the first time it has happened. I'm just paranoid that this could happen again while traveling on the freeway. Vehicle is well maintained with 144,000 miles.
