when i first turn a/c on, makes high pitch screeching sound that fades out; doesnt just stop, noise fades. i will turn a/c off during drive, then on again when it gets too hot..i hear this noise when i turn a/c on each time during same trip.a/c works pretty well. could be a bit cooler/colder; but good, not enough for me to take it in for more freon..is noise indication of something worse to come? should i take it in NOW? ive had the freon topped off once b4, yrs ago. (or so i was told...dealership, not sure they did anything). ty

I have a 97 Civic that needs a head gasket replacement, and after attempting the job myself, I wanted to get a quote to see how much the job would cost to complete. The old gasket was definitely bad - I had heating / cooling problems, a radiator hose rupture under exaust gas pressure, and a mechanic confirm it wasn't holding pressure. I pulled and machined the head, then reassembled the engine with new gaskets, timing belt, and water pump. The problem - the new gasket will not seal, and I don't want to repeat all that work. So, assuming the parts are good - what would be an estimate to do a full diassembly, recheck the head and block, and reassembly? How much would it be for me to do the diassembly, then bring it to you? Thanks!!

TURNING OVER BUT NOT FIRING UP..CAN NOT SMELL GASOLINE UP IN THE CARB...THINK IT IS RELAY FOR FUEL PUMP...DISTRIB...NOT SURE

My car has been overheating. I took it in a week ago. They changed the radiator cap and refilled the coolant. Now, the engine is overheating again. They think that I might be the head gasket. Is this a very expensive fix? Can it be anything else?

My automatic transmition slips when starting off in Drive / 1st gear. It works ok till the engine / transmition warms up; then it starts to slip (badly). I have assumed that this means I need a transmition rebuild / band for first gear. Other than using a transmition additive (which Ihve already tried and it helps a bit), are there any other solutions to get 1st gear to stop slipping? - Also - Who woulfd repai this cheaply (THe car ain't worth much.

My 1997 Honda Civic, got hot but did not overheat. Finding no problem with the cooling system, the Honda dealer did an air test and said the head gasket was leaking. BUT recommended against replacing the head gasket because it would cause it to start to burn oil badly. He said this is due to the high mileage, 174,000. Is that right? Why is that? Thanks.

driver side works good right front and rear windows wont go up or down window lock is off
