Do I need a water pump? The water pump I have is not leaking. There is a slightly deductible whirling noise which I️ am told is the water pump. I was told That there is give in the pulley and that the pump is worn and can go at any time. Sound reasonable or not?
Had no prior issues with the oil pan. No oil leaks what so ever. Went in for a routine oil change and the representative called me into his office to tell me the oil drain plug was worn out and stripped and couldn't be put back in and tightened. He said I would have to replace the entire oil pan. I had never heard of an oil drain wearing out. I thought this could only happen if you either put it in to tightly or putting it in crooked, both of which would cause it to strip.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? N/A
How long have you had this problem? no problen until I took it in for an oil change
MY ac stopped blowing cool air. I am being told that there is a leak in the unit. Does the entire unit need to be changed out.
I have replaced the refrigerant and refill with gas. It happens when I am driving or stationary and no noises. I also inspect all tubes for leaks and it is good.
While in park with the emergency brake down the car sounds fine when u crank it up an it's running. When u release the emergency brake while in park it rolls backwards and the regular brakes want stop it either. When I shift to drive and try to accelerate it want go forward; it rolls backwards & the regular brakes want stop it. While in drive it's making a loud clunking straining grinding scraping like noise from under the hood. Noise coming from passenger side, I think? Nothing appears wrong from under the car. VCS, traction, check engine light all on. Prior to all this happening, the oil change indicator had been on. This just happened while I was driving home. Left car parked. Car will not drive forward at all, just keep rolling backards except when the emergency brake is down and then the noise goes away too. Please help me! What can be wrong? What is the repair cost
