initially, the radio back light would work / then not work. Every thing else was OK. Now the amplifier on the head unit gives a click sound on the speakers & i get no sound for a while. It is getting progressively worse.

every other thing is working normal

and then the car will not start,and other times car will start perfectly.

I recently took my car to Midas for a routine oil change and tire rotation plus inspection and they recommended that I get all of the struts replaced, since the mileage on my car is at 78,000 without a previous replacement. Where can I purchase struts online? Do I need the whole shock assembly replaced or just the struts? What struts do you recommend for my car? (I would also like to maybe lower my car about an inch from stock; not enough to where I need to roll my fenders but would like advice on how difficult it would be as well as expensive for either lowered springs or coilovers) The mechanic gave me an estimate of about $1,168.42 total for both parts and labor.


I took my 2005 Honda Accord EX 4D 4cyl. to Midas for a routine oil change and tire rotation plus a free inspection and the mechanic said that I should get the Tensioner Pulley and Serpentine Belt replaced. The pulley is worn (a little rough with streaks of black from the belt but not bad) but there are not sounds or anything that tells me it is performing less than a brand new one. The belt they said is cracked in several areas, but since my car is 2005 I thought it should be made of EPDM and crack-proof. Should I get these things replaced for their estimate of $236.32 including parts and labor?


There was a loud crack and the car appears to be dead

My car was idle for more than 3 months. I jumped the car using another car. Car started however it was making loud horn so entered the code. Loud noise was not turning off. I went ahead and remove the fuse that controls the horn. I jumped the car again, now I have TCS warning sign and can not shift the gear to drive or reverse. Car runs in idle mode and when i open the car it makes the warning alarm as if someone is stealing the car. Since i removed the fuse it does not make noise.

i use super gas,i changed plugs ngk laser.

Most evident (1) when stopped, then accelerate (2) press brake to stop at any speed (3) when driving (high or low speeds) constantly have to overcompensate right due to left pull/veer. I have had three different repair shop perform alignments (including Honda) and same problem. The vehicle was in a "near total" front-end collision several years ago. I took the car back to the collision repair shop and they could not find problem either. I would really like to drive my car in a straight line, please help!

The engine warning light comes on, then goes off, but has remained on for last month. Shop test said oxyegen sensor bad and needed replacement but OK to drive. Replaced air filter, no help. How much would repair cost and does it hurt engine to drive?

I understand it is easy to change and would love to attempt it myself. If a diagram can be provided that would be great, but I'll take what I can get thanks.

what bolts do i need to take loose.

while driving down the road car will lose a little power like its going to stall out but does not kind a little jerk but not do to shifting

Car was taking to mechanic that put a scanner to the vehicle and claimed a P171 code and the problem was a bad O2 sensor.
A gas cap was brought because the other was defective and allowing air to enter the tank. The has been running with no check engine light or code present for eight days. Is the problem with code resolved.

what other reasons could it be? All the rest of my lights work....please help!!!!
