my car squeaks for little bump i hit and the steering wheel squeaks when when i turn left or right when car is in park what can cause these problems
t first it seemed to be a slight grinding but after three days it became louder more present grinding noise. At best is the noise coming from the rotor warp or lack of material on the rotor itself or pad demise.
what is the actual labor time?
My front passenger side squeaks like an old mattress when i go over a bump or uneven part in the road. My mechanic thinks it's the control arm. He sprayed it with lubricant, but I don't see a price on your site if it needs to be replaced.
In the winter time my windows have trouble closing back up. It got stuck once and wouldn't come back up. My father decided to fix this himself, after he fixed the window problem my door now makes a weird noise (groaning noise) everytime I lock my car. I assume my father didn't do a great job and left something un-screwed when he took apart my door to fix my window. What is the best solution to this problem? If I happen to take it to a shop, how much is the estimated price?

I am assuming this is a "Power Door Lock Actuator Replacement" problem?

*a groaning noise from the door as the lock is operating.
How I know It is necessary to change it an how much
I have changed the thermostat, pcv valve, new coolant and it still overheats and has an eratic idle. It does not have eratic idle upon startup, but after about 3-4 minutes is when it starts. Also the hose for the pcv valve wants to suck in as if it is starving for air. Cannot figure it out. PLEASE HELP!

I have a 1997 Honda Accord SE 4 door, auto, 4 cyl non vtec....My question is, there is a continuous "waaaaahh" sound coming from the front driver side, gets louder after 30 mph, and stops under 30,and is getting worse. Thought it was my tires they were a little worn, replaced them with some nice BFs but the noise is still there. I just checked underneath and the boot closest to the tranny, driver side is torn on the axle end. Im sure this is my problem. whats on the inside of the boot? whats making the noise? will a simple axle replacement fix it?
Where is the location for the obd connection?
