Question Answered: I get a click sound when i try to start my 94 sls cannot find the starter
March 22, 2012, 11:43 AM
The starter motor is located under the intake manifold. Best have car towed to a good shop to diagnose your problem. Good chance it could be the starter but in most cases most folks will need a pro to replace starter.

Could be a fuel pressue issue but also it might be a stopped up catalytic converter. Some cars you can loosen exhaust pipes in front of Cats and test to see if power returns. If that is not possible a shop that has a exhaust system back pressure tester can take a o2 sensor off and test for excessive pressure in the exhaust.
Question Answered: How do I know if a sub frame is bent? Lower control arm bushing is cracked.
March 22, 2012, 05:46 AM
Hard to see with by eye. Usally if something is bent it will show up on a alignment rack. Some of the angles that are not adjustable like set back, toe out on turns, thrust angles, and center line will be out of wack. If a alignment specilist cannot get your caster, camber setting in a acceptable range it may indicate something is bent. We commonly run into a bent steering knuckle in a case like you discribe. Not nessasarly a bent sub frame.
Question Answered: where to find brake light fuse of 98 kia sportage
March 22, 2012, 05:38 AM
At the brake lamp switch, check for battery voltage at the Orange wire. Voltage is supplied to the brake lamp switch from the stop lamp fuse. Battery voltage should be present all the time. 15 Amp fuse for the stop lights is located in the interior fuse panel located at the left side kick panel.
Question Answered: I have gas leaking from rear
March 22, 2012, 05:26 AM
Fuel pressure lines and return lines may follow the right side going up to the fuel module that is on top of the tank. If it leaks only when the engine is running I suspect that one of the lines could be damaged. Suggest you have a professional shop check it asap for safety sake.
Question Answered: Every time I go to start the car (cold) it makes this horrible squeaking sound
March 21, 2012, 02:21 PM
Could be a belt slipping but sometimes the best thing to do is take it to a professional and let them keep it long enough so they hear it. On manual transmission I have heard simulary discribed noise from the clutch.
Question Answered: engine misses and kicks back like it it jump time can it be the coil houising
March 21, 2012, 02:00 PM
If your car has the 2.4 liter engine the coil cover can cause your problem. It could develop a hair line crack and cause a ignition missfire or cross fire two cylinders at same time. Its similar to a distributor cap on older cars.
