driving down the road and ran over the rumble strip for a few minutes and all of sudden it dyes tried to start on a number of times and no luck could it be a loose sensor?
It seems this is no room to allow the air filter box to be easily open. The bottom clip (close to the driver side wheel) is difficult to reach and release.
I had a leaky radiator just below the plastic tank (expansion tank?) so I just replaced it with a brand new radiator and it's still leaking from the same place as it was before the replacement.

It doesn't leak while the car is on but it only occurs when the car is shut off.

Any idea's on what could cause this sorcery?
After replacing the starter motor my ignition switch is still dead? Could it be the ignition switch itself or a relay? Help!
The last few days I haven't been able to turn the key at all. I've tried making sure the steering wheel isn't locked, I've tried spraying out the hole with air to clean it. It's like something is sticking. Sometimes my husband can start it. But it takes a couple tries. I feel like I have to be the hulk just to turn my car key.
I bought 2 new tires 2 months ago. 205/55/15 on front as opposed to 205/60/15 on rear for a rake look. I am doing to buy 205/55/15 for rear as well shortly. could this be problem? Can I remove main power switch for a minute and replace? HELP!
I let my car sit for several monthes and the battery died. I had to get a new battery and all was great until I noticed now none of my windows will roll down and oddly the data "computer" that shows time/temp etc isn't working either. I am sure both happened at same time. I checked fuses but couldn't find problem. Help!?!
