Vibrates loudly and I can see the hydraulic mount has a crack in the rubber I want to know will that alone cause so much vibration it vibrates driving as well as in idle parked and neutral

I have a progressively (getting louder) squeak from the passenger side of my car. When I had my oil changed, Quick Lubes, told me that it was a bearing or two around the alternator. And it is a 5 hour labor job. I am trying to save up the money, I am just not sure how much time I have. It has 204, 000 miles.

Only happens when I hit a bump.

Want to change my shifter knob need to know how to do it

No money to add coolant to radiator. Light is on. Can I fill it with water?

Lights on dash board go off and on sporadically

I need a Body Control Module for my Ford Focus 2008... a new one. I have tried sending emails to Ford Dealers - can you advice? Thanks


I replaced the battery in the car today. The anti theft system has prevented me from starting my car on a regular basis for over a year. I could usually get the car started after cycling the key in the ignition multiple times and after turning off the radio, the A/C and closing all doors and applying the brakes and turning the steering wheel 1/4 turn. My car had an aftermarket car alarm last year. When this problem first came up, I had that alarm removed from my car. That solved the problem for some time. Over last 5 - 6 months the non-starting issue has become a daily occurrence. My car has no "Valet" switch nor REMOTE start,yet the anti theft light flashes even after I unlock the doors, either with the key or the fob. What procedure can I do so I may start the car without fear of being stranded? Please help! My car last started and got me home on 7/19/2014. Since then, it's been the same as always: I turn the key and all systems power up and the engine never turns! Thank you.
