Is there a crash sensor that needs re-setting ?

i want to know step by step on how to remove and replace morror on my doors

So if the head gasket work was done and then a week and a half later the car overheats again and then they tell us it needs a replacement engine could the gasket work have then caused this to happen (ie machine shop work or how they put it back together?) Did they not apply due diligence in the diagnosis of the problem?

ALSO is it better to get a "junk yard" replacement engine or a "japanese" used engine? Both would have mileage under 60K.

Thanks so much.

pumping fuel but no fire. did start the next day but shut down after 1 block.

i have a 1993 lexus es300 and the problem im having is that for one the check engine light came on a couple days ago which i know i'm gonna have to take it to get that checked out. right beside the check engine light, the light i guess is the low water warning light, or if some one could fill me in on what the name of the light. but thats the problem, the light comes on and i know i dont have a water leak any where and the radiator is doing fine. Can anyone help me , i want to know what are my options as far as getting it fixed.

left blinker is on constantly while ignition is on. what to do?

Our 2002 Kia Spectra recently started making a creaking noise when braking at low - medium speeds (such as slowing down to a stop sign). The creaking noise sounds like a creaky spring on an old mattress or like croaking. The noise only happens when the brakes are depressed with a medium pressure. Very light pressure or hard pressure do not cause sounds. Also, the noise is significantly louder when the weather is warmer. It seems like the noise gets louder when the car has been driven longer as well. It only happens when the car is moving forward, not in reverse.

We've had the brakes replaced by one mechanic. Another mechanic took apart the brakes and found no problems and put it back together.

We're hoping to sell the car very soon, but think the sound needs to be fixed before we can put it up for sale. We read a Yahoo post by someone with a similar problem. An answer submitted was to grease the front axle shaft splines. We're not sure if the solution is the same for our car. Any help/advice would be appreciated very much.



Any suggestions on fixing a rear automatic door lock? All fuses are good, and the other locks work too. I pulled apart the covers and found no broken wires. Any ideas?

can you check timing belt?

how hard to replace right mirror

whats leaking high temp

When i drive mabey 10 min. my car temp gage runs about 215 why is this?

I have had my Aztek in several times to fix this problem to no avail.If I could not turn the ignition off all the way - the dealership said it was a broken wire. It worked for about two weeks this time they said the harnes ewasnt long and lenghtened it - again it lasted only a short time. Now to add to my problem, I cannot press the button in to put it in gear - please help. And PS I have also had a BCM module put in two weeks ago, because it would not start

i bought this car form a dealer as is in the morning and now in the evening while i wanted to go out 1) i observed a strange fuel gauge reading it just shooted up and i drove it for a couple of yards and 2) it stopped as if it ran out of gas . i tried filling it up with about 3 gallons of fuel but still the engine is cranking but doesn't start. and now 3) it slowly started to lose battery power

I got this car from a neighbor...wasn't aware of the problems...but oh well I am not just not a mechanic...

This is the first time my truck has failed and I don't have a clue what to do. It is really hard for women to trust a shop to not do things that are not needed. My truck read 1529 on Nox at high speed,1617 on Nox on low speed. It also failed HC at low speed with a reading of 157. Not 3 mos ago I just had a tune up with spark plugs, wires distributor cap, etc. done. Just had my oil changed yesterday. My blazer has 195,000 miles and I have owned it from its original owner, my previous boss, from 1996. I have taken excellant care of it. I do routine maintenance at the right miles,etc. I just feel so helpless because this has never happened and I don't know a trust worthy shop that won't rip a girl off . I paid over $300 for the tune-up but I had no choice as my truck was missing and shaking bad and I knew something was wrong and I had to get to my daughter out of town the next day so I just drove in to the closest shop by my work so they could fix it while I was at work. I don't know if this has anything to do with failing that test. Please help me as I love my truck and don't want it broken not to mention I really need to pass for the inspection.
