I want to do the required maintenance... timing belt and such, but can't find a dealer that will do the work !!!!
One dealer told me why fix what's not broken !!! if they start working on the engine they may run into costly parts and will cost more than car is worth !!!! So I'm suppose to drive til the timing belt breaks and hope I survive an accident !!! Don't know what to do ????

What is the problem with this 99 catera when it has no power andruns very badly and has raw gas coming out the tailpipe?

Everything should have power for 10 mins, but don't. Why is this?

They have not worked since I have had the car.

i need dex cool an my car how do you put it an

had been working previously

has been working and the resivoir is full

Problem started WHEN dealer checked headlight. Alarm goes off every couple hours When I leave car unlocked, alarm does not go off?

I am loosing water in this area but need to make sure exactly where it is before I buy this car so I can be certain all I have to do is change water pump.

Very strong fuel smell no lights are coming on

It is leaking water water near the water pump. I can't see exactly where. I have the new water pump ready to install but, i am unsure of exactly what to do/

When I fill up with gas the nozzle keeps shutting off. I have been doing a lot of reading iand it appears that it is the Canister Purge valve, but I don't know where it is. Is this something that I have to get a mechanic to change.

It stalls when warm and won't start til cooled. Can it be accessed from topside or do I access it from below?

we can't find out where to put it in.

working all the times.
