Question Answered: Clear coat is coming off.I was quoted $1000 to fix. Is that expensive?
March 21, 2014, 07:28 PM
your asking a wrong question. think about it this way, you can get a watch for probably ten bucks, a rolex is going to cost you a lot more. what you need to find out, is the type of clear coat being used, the product, compare apples to apples, not a quality product to some cheap won't last long product. if you get three quotes, using the same product, then go with the company that you liked the most, as long as their price is in the ball park of the lowest quote.

Question Answered: Wheres my tach. sensor located on my 91 gmc 1500 sierra?
July 07, 2012, 09:57 PM
would not necessarily call it a tach sensor, sounds like the instrument cluster is bad. the tach signal comes from whatever the vehicle uses for rpm, be it distributor, crank sensor. obviously since your vehicle is running ok, its going to be the cluster that needs to be checked.
Question Answered: Why does a/c blow hot air on driver side only?
July 07, 2012, 09:53 PM
low refrigerant charge, the computer cannot keep the whole vehicle cold with the charge in the system, but its pretty smart, so when the refrigerant pressure goes below a certain value, it tries only to keep the driver of the vehicle comfortable. so the refrigerant system has a leak and its low on refrigerant.
Question Answered: My brake lights on both sides are not working at all but the center light works.
July 07, 2012, 09:48 PM
the only diffrence on the wiring, is that the center mount brake light gets its power directly from the brake pedal switch, the outside bulbs, power goes thru the multi function switch before going to the outside bulbs. However, usually what I find, is that someone installs the wrong bulb number, they do not install what the vehicle calls for, they install whatever will fit into the bulb socket.
Question Answered: I just purchased a used car and I must get to vegas.

I have seen brand new vehicles break down with less then 10 miles on the odometer. there is no way anyone can tell you your going to make it there. this is what you should do, don't drive it, get a rental vehicle, its smarter, especially on long trips, if you break down, there is a phone number for you to call if something happens, the rental car companies that I am familar with, they give you another vehicle and take that one, if anything happens. so you get to enjoy your vacation without waiting on any repair. get a rental vehicle.

Question Answered: I need sum serious j30 runs gr8 then it dnt run at all!!
July 06, 2012, 01:41 PM
it needs to go to a repair shop. problem is probably in the anti theft, if you had a remote you could try using it to unlock all the doors when the problem occurs, then see if it will crank. am going to take it that you do not have a working remote.
Question Answered: Code P1320
July 06, 2012, 01:21 PM
the ignition is made up of two parts, "primary and secondary" the primary is the twelve volt part, it has power and ground from the vehicle battery. the secondary is the high voltage that goes to the spark plugs. anything that affects battery voltage going thru the coil{s} can set this code. first step obviously would be to check the vehicle battery, then to check the wires that go to each coil for voltage and ground. next step depends on how the code sets, clear the code, see how quickly it comes back, if its pretty much immediately, replace all the coils at the same time, all the coils have fired the same number of times, when one goes, the others are shortly to follow. if it takes a few times driving for the code to set, a cam or crank sensor has the possibility of setting the code.
