Just had my brought a new battery from AAA for my car ( Group 86, 700 CCA ) and for some reason after my car sits for awhile or a minute, my power lock does work via key and radio goes off-line after sitting awhile. What is causing this? This wasn't going on before I changed the battery.

Question Asked: 

my oil light started flashing on and off making me think I needed to change the oil. However, I just changed the oil last month so I took it back to NTB and had them check the oil level. They said my oil level was fine, maybe a little over but wasn.t dirty. So I asked them to change it again using high milage oil and drove for about 35 miles and the light flashed on then off for a brief moment. As I drove it this morning the light was off until I had driven about 35 miles and the light came on flashing but stayed on until I got home. What should I do?

Question Asked: 

Car has 200,200 mi on it and was told not to flush the transmission due to it never being changed. However, it was said that I just drop the trans fluid pan, empty it, change filter, replace the fluid without flushing the transmission. Is this true?

Question Asked: 

My car has 195,500 mi. and has never had a transmission fluid change. A mechanic told me to not change it becuse the milage is high and due to never changing the fluid there is probably a lot of seditary deposits that will be shifted around if he drains the fluid, thus possibly causing future transmission problems. I just had all the belts and water pump changed, new spark plugs and timming belt. Now I feel a slight shift when accelerating that I used to never feel or noticed. When I took my car for an oil change at Jiffy lube, they recommended a trnsmission flush costing $125 dollars. What should I do?
