pretty sure not blowed head gasket. And doesnt do it all the time. Trany fluid driping out weep hole.
Had the canister purge solenoid replaced. Every code is up to par except the catalytic converter.
High-pitched squealing when brakes gently applied -- only during first miles of slow driving/braking, after car has been sitting for hours or overnight (mild weather temps). After driving for a brief time, no longer hear this sound when braking.
Inspection reports one "rear caliper dragging" -- recommend replacing (both) + pads + machine rotors, not inexpensive.
Have a broken wire right at connector so can't splice.
Evidence of oil blowback, not noticed for quite awhile. Suspected oil leak, both valve cover gaskets. Repair shop advised to keep checking oil dipstick, adding oil, until I can afford repair.
Is this sufficient for the time being, to prevent total engine fail. Also, what else might be found when valve cover is removed?
I've looked n looked no coolant spots in the driveway n no signs on the engine but the car looses a gallon of coolant every few days has anyone had this problem
Coolant leak on the pavement, appears to be on front right side (facing forward).
At last 2015 inspection, brakes notation:
F "4MM" and R"6MM"
Assume front more immediately important?
If no brake squealing/grinding is heard, no brake chatter, maybe I can avoid the extra cost for rotor resurfacing??
does the engine from the 99' have to be synced with the computor when put into the 96
