car ran fine until my dad fixed the his dash lights , never started after that pulled plug checked fire ( no fire ) checking fuel tomorrow.

as per dealer invoice info:
CONDITION-replace EGR modulator as per prev diagnosis on previous issue of engine light coming on. dealer at time of diagnosing issue charged me $132.83 no repair done at that time
CORRECTION- removed and replaced EGR vacuum modulator as previously diagnosed. Cleared DTC's, road tested to confirm ok
Well know the engine light is now back on, what could causing this again??

dash lights work now but / car will not start / started good until we fixed the dash lights?

The vehicle is fitted with a security system. It is cranking but not starting. How will I disarm the system manually and get it to run?

Hi There. When I take my foot of the gas (40-50km) the motor is noticeably jumpy. This movement also travels up through the gear stick. It's as if the whole gearbox and motor is moving. BTW, it's a manual trans.

I've already replaced the dog bone mount on top of the engine thinking that was the problem, but not the lower font and back mounts as they appear solid, but I could also be wrong about that.

Does this sound like an engine mount problem or something else?

Thanks. Dallas.

Anti-freeze is leaking in area next to alternator

how do I get the car to start? followed directions in owners manual but does not fix problem.

The operative motor is sound, the tank holds the windshield fluid. One nozzle does not project fluid onto the windshiled at all, the other slightly but not enough to reach the windshield.

Of the power windows. I recently had to pull the emergency cable to open the gas tank in the trunk and ever since then I have had this problem. I have replaced the blown fuse several times, yet the problem persists. What can I do?

the springs are off do you have to replace the whole door actuator

my friend didn't see the flood over the road way, it stall and wont start back up we drain all fiulds and put new in. still wont start

Will not go into reverse.

Anyone have any troubleshooting advise?
