It keeps blowing the ECM fuse among others what could it be

Need to know if it has a drain plug for transmission fluid

It only works on 4 then the fuse blows

When idle, or using/pushing clutch in, the loud roaring/sounds like thunder under, stops. As i use the gas, it continues to get louder. Any help fellow mechanics?? I was thinkin ball joint, transaxle, clutch plate/disk, bearings...??? Help. Also, this may be the UJoint in the rearend, just want to make sure first. Loud popping as if the butt is going to come out, lol, when hitting bumps, turning to hard or ahem ahem drifting.. lol... any ideas?

Just bought the car, used. There isn't a radio installed. Replaced fuses. Replaced tail light bulb. Individual instrument lights do work, dimmer doesn't change anything.

I have had this vehicle for only 3 months. It idled rough but has been fine up until a month ago. First battery went dead...replaced! Than all of a sudden it would stall when stopping. I pulled into parking lot to work and it started to die but didn' felt like it was losing power. Well I thought maybe the cables were not on tight enough, so had someone check, they were fine. Took it too Auto Zone they put on there machine and said all the sensors were good. I had the alternator checked said it was good, but it was still on the vehicle??? Had the wires and plugs replaced also. Can't really get an answer from anyone since I am a woman. Don't know if they don't know anything or don't care?! I thought maybe the fuel filter, but when I went to price it, they told me it don't have one???? What the heck!! Please HELP...this is so FRUSTRATING!

alternators listed for this car are a 90 amp or 95 can i tell which one i need and how can i tell which one is on the car now...

it bcomes on and stays on for 15 mins or more some times less and then would flicker and go off by itself. comes on whether I am on the hwy or in city driving......had car code codes were evident.

at 90 thousand. I have 125 k on it now . The belt still looks good , but has bent valves.

idle is fine. just kinda putts and dies when i try to drive it.
