at the stoplight, I had it in drive and it did not want to take off, now I'm not for sure if it is the transmission or a sensor.

Had no problems before this on starting my car. Also checked plugs and wires

what is the foot torque used when changing head gasket

Head frequency when putting a head gasket back on

On putting key in ignition, and starting the car, I note that it will start only after I get an green light indication on "D" gear on the dashboard's display panel.

Sometimes, it takes 5 to 10 minutes after putting the key in the ignition, for the light to come up, and the car will start only after the light starts. Sometimes it starts within a minute. There seems to be delay in the startup from the computer. Any idea whats wrong and it's solution ?

I turn key all the way and nothing. No sounds. No dash lights. With key in on position I get no radio, no heat/ac, no power to roll windows up or close sunroof! But my headlights are working as well as dome lights and circular ring around key insert. That's it. Replaced, ignition switch and main relay and nothing. Fuses are good. But why wouldn't I not get power to my dash or other electrical components when ignition is in on position? Please help

I changed the fuel pump and fuel filter but my car will not remain running, it turns over and shuts off. I used starter fluid and the vehicle ran for almost a second but then shut off! Any ideals would be much appreciated.

piece that holds the harmonic balancer on tight so you can turn it but lefty lucy don't seem to be working ive broke three socket wrenches

Car starts after 2 attempts, once started car runs fine for approx. 15 mins. longer on cold days. then it looses power and surgres. will not completely die but comes close. dealership says pcm is bad. dont wanna pay $600 to replace is if flashing it is not neccessary i can do it myself

I have had the altenator replaced 2 times in this car. When it is running it runs very smooth. However at times when I try to start it up, it won't start. It will turn over but its like it won't catch. When it does start, I can drive it and it will stall. You never know when it will start or cut off. The battery is good (except I was told the positive connector probably need to be replaced). When the mechanic gets it, it runs smoothly. It has been in and out of the shop for weeks, with the same problem.

I bought the car 4 months ago and I don't have a manual nor knowledge regarding adding of fluids. Everything seemed to be at the proper levels until I recently discovered a white plastic container for brake fluid mounted under the hood on the driver side. (I thought there was only one) I am having concerns regarding an intermittent buzzing noise that started about 10 days ago and has been increasingly worse and I believe it is coming from that area. The ABS has never worked and I am in the process of saving the money to fix it Does it relate to the fact this box I discovered is empty?

My wife says the oil light keeps coming on when going up a moutain. The fan motor stays on when she cuts the motor off for a few minutes and the Radiator makes a gurgeling sound after shutting car off. I checked the radiator fluid level, ok. Oil level is between the two holes on the dip stick. Normal level as far as I know. Work performed: New radiator & cap. New water pump & thermostat & timing belt, new head gasket & seals. New tune up kit with NGK plugs & plug wires & distributer cap and rotor. Still having same problem, oil light comes on going up mountian.
