One mechanic says my sway bar needs fixed around $100. The other says the steering rack needs replace $900. I just want to safely (and cheaply) get to work and back. Plan to keep the car till at least the end of the year. Recently had struts and tie rods replaced. So far, this has been very good dependable car, runs good - high mileage, though.
Within the past 3 mos. the fan motor in my 1997 Honda Accord EX turns on after I switch off the engine. According to the temp gauge, the car isn't over heating although it will only do this if I driving for more than 20 consecutive minutes.
Especially when I slow down, stop at the light or most times when I climb a little hill
I had a mechanic replace the timing belt and water pump. The day I picked it up, the car did not start. It would engage, like the lights came on but it would not turn over. The mechanic said, "Oh, it's ok. It just needs to be jumped off." I jumped it off. The motor stuttered and slightly hesitated while the lights flickered dim to dimmer. Once it was driven for a mile and half, the car was like normal. However, the next day, I drove it to work. After my shift, it would not start or turn over. It has been sitting for 2 weeks. The mechanic keeps blowing me off. I have replaced the battery and still the car will not turn over. Please advise. Thank you.
When i would give it gas it would do like it dont wanna go but when it would catch it would drive fine
My son's Honda has been throwing a check engine light for the last 8 or 9 months and we can't seem to get it fixed. Have changed the distributor cap, two different temperature sensors multiple times and the manifold gasket (suggested that there was remaining gasket material causing a air lead).
The car runs fine, and then and then feels like it is stalling and then throws the check engine light. Turn off the car, wait 10 minutes, check engine light stays on, but the car runs okay. Dealership as well as Dobbs has been unable to get it fixed. The last fix (manifold gasket) was only for 1 week, less than 100 miles.

I bought a speed sensor for the transmission
It's crack where tha manifold meets the motor bolt housing
Bolt housing is cracked all the way around the where the bolt goes to the engine
