Heating & air condition system,rear passenger fender Tru kdoor replacement rear window how much to fix.
No matter what I do, I can't reset the clock. The only way I can see how to adjust the clock is on the GPS screen where I adjust the a/c and do most other functions.
I replaced the radio which did not solve the problem. I suspect that there may be a defective amplifier between the windshield antenna and the radio. I'm unable to find any associated part number or complete connection diagram online.
I had an engine transmission mount replaced on 1/2013. I believe all thoe mounts need replacing.
I'm referring to fixing the common problems by strengthening the parts that most commonly go out.what are those parts?I do transmission work and would like to strengthen mine before I have to do a complete rebuild.
replaced spark plugs. did not help.
Passenger strut has broken 4x in 2 yrs. Pops/pushes out of housing. Replaced 1 wk ago, barely drove car, & returned to auto shop b/c started making similar banging noise over bump. New strut looks like the nut holding strut is being pushed/forced up on its screw from below. Strut also looks like it moved more toward right side (toward motor). Still holding but concerned b/c it was barely used & already looks odd. Auto shop fixed nut but no advice re: what is causing strut to keep breaking. Just pointed out other things they want to & said "some cars are just weird like that". This is a machine, there is an answer somewhere. Need help finding it or we will have to junk the car. This is 5th strut, please help with any advice on cause of breaking strut!
It occurs when driving at a slow speed. Diagnostic code P0740.
The car was just in for repair for this issue. New front brakes and a master cylinder were installed. The pedal still goes to the floor. The mechanic says it is normal. Is this normal? It does not seem right to me.

Can I get less engine vibration caused by bad motor mounts by putting in aftermarket mounts or do I have to replace with OEM ones that cost 100 more a piece
took to repair shop (high quality shop)their diagnosis was motor mounts front and rear needed replacement.I'm retired auto collision shop owner so figured I could change them and save hundreds. took them out and found them to be not broken or cracked,thought one would be and front one showed signs on bolts it had been replaced.Can they internally be bad or aftermarket replacment be inferior. vehicle has never been wrecked,very well taken care of but has 190th miles,and engine runs very smooth.
I put temp all the way up n it don't get hot on auto or ac
The transmission start to slip at the beginning, flashed D5 light just for while when the car was in D4 mode.By turning off and then back on got rid of D5 flashing. But interestingly after parking the car at roadside the car didn't want move into any gear and after a slight push the car accepted a gear in D5 mode. Now again the car doesn't want to get into any gear. I don't know what could be the problem?
