There seems to be nothing that triggers the alarm. It can happen at any time of the day or night. I would be happy to just have the alarm system disabled.

I HAVE TO PUMP IT REALLY SLOW OR IT DOESN'T STAY IN TANK. A LOT OF PRESSURE BLOWES IT BACK OUT. WHY?

Srs light use to stay on while in drive. After replaced the top horn an replaced the 10 amp fuse, now i have a 1 4scnd and 8 quick blinks with 4 scnd pauses while I'm driving.

Whilst travelling forward

the engine goes off when i try to give an instant acceleration for speed. the car can not run more than 80Km/h.

last year i was sitting in my car with the ac running, everything weorking fine. waiting on my mother. all of the sudden the thermostat shot up hot and my air blew hot air. I shut the car off and all was well. However, we had no air. I tried a few cans of freon, worked slightly for a day of so but that was it. Then i had the entire system drained and refilled and checked for leaks. was told there were none. again it worked slighjtly for a few days and that was it. Now i have tried to cans of freon with the dye hioping to see something but not yet. The freon helps it blowslightly cooler air but nothing like it used to. aklso when i sit in idle mode the car seem to get hot when ac is on. please advise..

Or it's a vibration

Was told misfiring could be a leaky cam cover gasket or faulty plug leads. Vehicle has 200 000km+ on the clock. Had cambelt and radiator replaced. Recent auto box problems solved with oil change.

I flip the switch and the wiper doesn't work. It just flops and hangs down the liftgate. I can pick it back up to the window but will not stay, feels like something has sprung in there. Little advise here, please. And thanks.

It has a strong gasoline smell!

While fueling my car with the fuel nozzle inserted in at different angles, depths, etc..., the gas will spit back out at me.
