Reported by DeSchon for the Kia Sorento

Power steering went out. Replaced pump,and pressure hose,still leaked, and wouldn't steer properly. There is a small filter in it that clogs and needs to be cleaned. It was the problem all along after $1200 in repairs. Will never own another Kia. Service sucks and more expensive than you can imagine to "try" and repair.

I have had two ingition coils fail within the tenth year of owning this car. They are giving a cylinder misfire error when connected to a computer. They can easily be preplaced by anybody with moderate mechanical skills.

My dodge caliber SXT 2008 just woke up one morning, out of the blue my car didn't start. I tried to jump it, twice. I had no crank or not even turning over, but I could here a noise like it was trying but would fail to start like something was not electrically wired right. I can put the key in and the radio will work/lightup, etc in acc mode. But shut off like it is not communicating with the starter.

So then I got the battery tested, tha...

Your engine has jumped a tooth on the timing chain more than likely on the crankshaft chain P.S. there is 3 chains in total. Dont chase the codes and spend the money to have it inspected for these codes. Very weird symptoms as far as going into Limp home Mode as well where it s...

Reported by woodwright for the Buick LeSabre

After six months of having it towed and then loaning it to my local repair shop to drive as a parts car they gave it back to me and said to scrap it. I started pulling things off just to look at them and found the MAP sensor was full of sludge. It looked like a Ford engine back in the day running Quaker State oil (foamy). I replaced the MAP sensor and it ran another 25,000 miles without a problem. The local Buick dealer was a bucket of no ...

It began when I had a new key and FOB programmed, my truck began having issues when starting all the power would work everything was fine except nothing would happen with the engine it wouldn't start. It began happening more and more frequent irregardless of temperature of engine or time of day during usage. I cleaned spark plugs and posts even changed out the fuse box.

Reported by MotherBear2 for the Lincoln LS

I bought you brand new from a dealership. I knew it was a doomed relationship when at 10k, your passenger side seat heater and blower motor went out. Okay, under warranty. In hindsight, I should've unloaded the garbage heap then and there. At 51k, the same thing happened on the driver's side. Juuuust out of warranty. The cost of fix it was a COMPLETE replacement of the driver's side seat at Lincoln parts pricing. That was the very beginn...

The car horn keeps going off. Took it Honda Repair Shop. They thought they fixed the issue, but didn't. Took it back... They said couldn't find anything. Tonight at 11:15 pm it went off. Then again at 12:30am. It's waking up the neighborhood. We'd all appreciate the solution. I'm taking the car back in the morning. If anyone has knowledge of the solution, please let me know.

Reported by mas32 for the Nissan Armada

Liftgate would not operate with FOB or manually lifting the rear door handle. I could tell it wasn't electrical because I could hear the motor turning. I noticed that the lift arm was loose, and assumed it became disconnected from the motor actuator. When I removed the jack, I felt around in the bottom of the cavity and found the small bolt that came loose...lucky. Getting access to it where the 2 pieces connect was a little tricky, I didn'...

Reported by truker123 for the Toyota Sequoia

Sequoia 2001 up to 2007: design of the Sequoia rear door hatch is such that water and salt gets into the back door (lift gate), and will rust the metallic rear window rails (which are neither galvanized nor stainless steel). The result is that lift gate window will no longer operate. The solution is to lubricate the rails once a year. (Note that even the Krown Rust Proofing was not able to get to the rails) and it is required to remove the in...

One weak point of the Toyotas is the design of the front Stabilizer Arms. Good quality after market Stabilizer Arms are better than the Toyota OEM and will last longer if you can find one with grease fitting.

Reported by truker123 for the Toyota Sequoia

2001 up to 2007 modes: have experienced this problem with both of my rear O2 sensors where the nuts holding them in place had come loose and fallen off. Then while trying to accelerate, the extra pressure buildup in the exhaust system resulted in the O2 sensor popping out (about a year apart and not both at the same time) The solution is inexpensive as it will require a gasket and two 10mm nuts, but a hassle. Have the bolts holding the O2 sen...

If you have ever replaced the windshield of any vehicle beware that the job done at even the most reputable auto glass shops is subject to failure as the polyurethane caulking used to seal the replacement windshield to the frame can fail if sufficient amount of sealant is not used or if the glass is not set in time, and this can result in water leakage that will get into the fuse box under the dash. If you ever develop electrical problems in a...
