Question Answered: 

I found that is right you need to change the flid & filter every 30,000 miles It is very easy for a do it your self project USE ONLY AFT+4 trany fluid cost 12.00 for filter and gasket and 25,00 for 5 qts of ATF+4 Add 3 qt then run car , check fluid, add if needed then run car for 10min recheck fluid add again if needed ps let fluid drain for 20min after you fulley remove the metel pan and gasket Filter just pulls down to get off no screws. If you do a lot of mountian driving change oil more often every 15,000 miles and add an oil cooler to the system

I also had this type fo problem. Replaced swaybar and bushing KEY here is to add a piece of ruber around bushings this helps secure them when you screw in the metel clamp to the car. sway bar end link, quick struts , control arms with ball joint and control arm bushings. STILL HAD A PROBLEM found the control arm bushings had play in them when you hold the tire at 3 & 9 oclock and shake. I added a1/16" shim 2"long that i made around the bolt that goes thru the control arm bushing , had to hammer it to get it in. That did the trick NO MORE NOISE Hope this helps

Question Answered: 

I found That adding more fluid corrects this So I have it over the full line on resivoir. I had tried to clean the screen in the bottom of the PS resivor first did not help SO add a little at a time then see what happens when it stops making noise stop adding fluid. Over fill no more then 1/4 in over the full line. if you get that much in with out fixing it there seems to point to another problem in power sterring system

Mine cost $ 60.00for the part I have the automatic temp control the manual control only cost $20 It is real easy to replace , it is behind the glove box ALSO CHECK YOUR CABIN AIR FILTER IT IS below and to the driver side of the blower resister pack you will need to take off the cover on the bottom of the filter housing. this filter has a cut in in it half wayup the filter so you can install it you will see it when the old one comes out If this filter is not bad check the blower motor it could be going bad Something caused the blower resistor to go bad good luck

Question Asked: 

I have several lights out on switches on the console. heated seat switchs are one any ideas on what could be wrong? where would I get a schematic for the lights on the console area? The back ground lights for the heated seat it shows the seat when its on the yellow lights light up on the switch. Also back ground light around the radio / heater / air are out so you can turn a switch far location of the fan and the yellow light moves but you can not see what you are
