warm air blows out of the left side of the AC vents.. and I was wondering if a compressor failure could be the sole cause of this occurrence..
My driver's side temperature control is kicking out cold air and my passenger's side is kicking out hot air no matter how I adjust the temperature. I don't know if there is a fuse that is blown or if I need to replace something else...?
The car has a column shifter. I have replaced the brake switch,
the shifter, the interlock switch, shifter cable and etc. Shifter works fine if cable is not attached to transmission. I can shift transmission with a wrench, but hook the two together and shifter and transmission will not shift out of park. Please help.
I have replaced the radiator (new), replaced the Antifreeze with the green 50/50 mix and the radiator/thermostat temperature sensor. I am told that the fluid in the radiator is not warming up fast enough? How do I get the light to stay off? thanks
cost of parts and labor
After repairing ignition bar and reinstalling column wobbles slightly pretty sure I put everything in its place obviously not could anything I should check?
I was pulling into my driveway this morning and when I put the car into Park, my car still was moving forward, as if the car were in Drive. I put on the brake and shifted the car into Reverse and the car still moved forward. I shifted back into Park and killed the engine, the car then started to roll backwards as if the car were in Neutral. I put on the parking brake, waited a few minutes and then tried to crank the car. The car will not crank and I can no longer shift gears at all. What happened? and about what is the estimated cost of repairs for something like this? Thank You!
When i turn the key in the ignition it goes dead,lights and window works
the condeners has a slow leak can it be fix or do I need to replace it and what labor i time
My 1998 Civic-EX: After filling up the tank, parked/running on even ground, won't show tank as FULL... it shows as about 3/4-4/5 FULL. Pulled the back seat, removed wiring harness, jumpered across sending unit wires and watched as Gauge rose to FULL. AHAH! So I pulled the Sending Unit/Float Assembly, raising the float manually to see if the Fuel Gauge moved to FULL (it did), and I noted that there was a little fuel in the Float so I figured it was "water logged" with fuel. I replaced the SendingUnit/Float Assembly, testing the new float to make sure the gauge read Full when manually moving it upward. It did. I reassembled the sending unit Assembly with a NEW ONE and even took some sand-paper to the terminal ends that plug into the SendingUnit Assembly to make sure I had a good connection. Even after filling up the tank, the Fuel Gauge still doesn't show as FULL. It's not as bad as it once was, but I am back to using the Trip Odometer - knowing that I should probably fill up around 300mi. I hate "Trial & Error", ie- admitting that I may have made a mistake, but the float DID have some fuel in it. The connection at the Fuel Gauge is the only thing left (besides trying to track down the entire circuit line to see if it has insulation cracked off, slightly shorting out the line). Any suggestions? (before I begin taking the fuel-gauge assembly out of the dash) Thanks!
NEED TO FIND THE EXPANTION THERMOSTAT VALVE ON THE 1994 CADILAC ELDERADO WITH V8 NORTH STAR ENGINE
My boyfriend went to auto zone to get checked why his check engine light is on. It said the EGR valve is bad. Well a couple weeks about maybe about 1 month ago you can smell gas, after he runs it. He is getting it checked out tomorrow. But another thing is he is using alot of gas also too. About 1\4 of a tank for a 90 miles round trip to work. So I was just wondering if anyone would know what else it could be.
it feels like it is something with in the linkage along the column (steering) Itried to fallow the linkage and dont see any problems but can not shift any advice ?
Also they say I have a leak at the right rear axle seal. A regular maintenance. Is turning into a nightmare.
Please help???? Is there somewhere else I can take it....
After driving and arriving home, with the transmission in park, after turning the a/c off, the engine sometimes shuts off.
