I keep hearing different things and am not sure which is right
Shop says my fluctuating heater and occasional loss of power are due to head gasket problem. $2600 job. Is this plausible?
then shut off and then I turn on again and it seems ok - I put in a new battery but I dont' know if it is the alternator or what- I don't want to waste money on the alternator if it is something else - can it be the voltage switch and is that expensive - this is driving me crazy!!
brakes are good, just had them checked, any ideas? Happens after the car starts moving. The abs is on all the time.
2006 Explorer sounds like a Jet Engine lately. Rev's real high more and more. Seems like a fan or something but I can't pinpoint it.
Temp gauge spikes sometimes not very often but sometimes. Also I have heard what seems to be fluid in my dashboard sloshing around.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
