I have replaced my alternator and computer about 3 months ago. Now the alternator only charges sporadically, what could cause this?

I have a 2007 Jeep Liberty with 38,000 miles on it. I found out today that all 4 of the brake pads and rotors are excessively rusted out and needs to be replaced. This is, according to them, because I do not drive it alot (is an avg. of 170 miles a week not considered alot?) and the salt used on the roads in Michigan. I have a hard time believing this. To me, it sounds like faulty parts. BTW, the Lower controller arms on the rear suspension was just recalled today for excessive rusting out and causing accidents. Please help

EML light came on

We have replaced the Pick up coil in the distributor, the coil, the cap and roter and the ICM module. The van won't produce more then a yellow spark at the distributer wire 1 x per new try. Almost every thing has been replaced and we are still scratching our heads. We don't have any other Ideas can you help?

after car warms up, doesn't seem like it is getting any fuel. doesn't go over 20 to 25 miles an hour even if I floor it!

charge will run next day is dead

a/c off still makes noise

Have had power steering and transmission fluid levels checked. Any ideas?


I have a 2002 that I brought down with me from Iowa when I moved to Florida. My service tech has always told me that it's pretty rusty. About a week ago, I took my Santa Fe in to get looked at because I was noticing a big rattle noise on the rear right side when going over bumps. The technician noticed that my right rear strut had rusted out and was bottoming out on the top mount. They are suggesting I don't fix it and just get rid of it because they are unsure due to the rust if "fixing it" would even work. Problem is, I'm expecting a baby in September and was going to be a stay at home mom after he's born. Therefore, unable to afford a car payment. I wanted to know if anyone else has had this issue and if so, did you fix it or junk it? I don't want to put any more money into this car but at the same time.....if it can be repaired it may be worth it. Need help deciding what to do?????

The VW VAG shows a code of 529...generic code reader shows P0725..vehicle stalls when at operating temperature and then will restart when cooled down...please advise

not sure if the above is the solution. My check gauges light comes out at low idling and oil pressure stays in red zone but goes up at i accelarate. oil level is normal.

i windows, speakers, turn signals wont work. but the husband can run a wire from the battery to the window motor and it will work. his uncle said something about the turn signal knob could be bad. but he hooked up a toggle switch for the blower motor and it smoked and that is when everything started to quit working.

looking up the computer online it say that there is onboard programing after installation. is this something that come with instruction so i can do it myself or do i have to take it to a machanic?

the temperature gauge looks like its getting hot, but the fans dont come on unless you turn on the air conditioner. i have changed fan relays, thermostat, and coolant temperature sensor. now what?
