Just found out my left rear spring is broken. I ned to know about how much it would cost to have that fixed.
When trying to restart- indicators,signalsand gauges all light up. Car is not crankning or making any other noises during startup. Hotshot did not work, but battery appears to be OK. All fuse are OK. Is this electrical related, if so what could be the cause?
When I change lanes 50 mph or higher on roads that have snow between the lanes, it feels like the truck wants to spin out. Scares the hell out of passengers.I just bought it so I have been driving at 50 or lower on snow roads.
I check all the doors yet the door ajar warning comes on. Any ideas?
The gear shifter won't come out of park and I don't have any brake lights. I checked the fuse that controls the interlock brake system with a test light and no light with key off, but lights with key on. Is this the promblem?

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.

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.
