need to replace blend door actuarer. have part what is laber caust.

sometimes my car dies on me when I'm at a stop of right when i first start it. No "check engine light goes on" and went to an AutoZone and a sales guy looked at my air filter, checked the battery and alternator, which were all good and said there may be carbon build up on the plugs.

While driving slow with the windows down, I hear a squeaking noise coming from underneath...just wondering if I need new shocks, vehicle dosnt bounce roughly but can feel hard when hitting bumps in the road.

When coming to a stop light and stopping, the truck will either surge for a second and then feels like it wants to cut off..while driving, the check engine light comes on and engine stalls for a few seconds, then check engine light goes off

I have a 2003 Ford Explorer and it is very hard to move from any gear right of the P sign.. meaning If im in 1st, 2nd gear, Drive, Neutral, or Reverse its hard to go into park. I have to basically pull the gear shifter towards me and then up and it will finally go into park (I bought it this way). The gear shifter is on the steering column, not on the console in between the seats.

how much will cost me to replaced the rear differential on my explorer 2003

The service engine light came on this morning, i have around 130,000 miles on my explorer. I do not know what this means?

Battery dead. Battery charger starts it right away. Battery has been checked and is good. Alternator checked and is good. Once started will run beautifully. After engine off for about 3 ours or so, car won't start. When battery is dead and you open the door, the security alarm sounds.

i have heard noise coming from the front axles(i think)that sounds like a rotation noise, especially when i am decelerating. Is this a bearings or bushing problem.

My heat isn't working. When I cut it on, I hear a click, click, click noise. The air is blowing but no heat seems to be coming out of the vents.

whenever i turn on the heat the heater only blows out cold air

every time I turn on my heat, it is making a clicking sound and only blowing out cold air.
