I live on a dirt road full of chatter bumps. Equinox clunks constantly when going down road, I believe in the front center of the vehicle. Don't usually hear it on paved roads unless I go over a bump. Today I turned the steering wheel back and forth quickly on dry pavement and it duplicated the noise. My son thinks its the inner tie rod ends. Does this sound correct?

Engine was tunning fine then went dead and after 15 started back up ran for 5 minutes and died again then started back up after another 15 minutes.check engine light is on.

After driving for a few minutes , problem does not recur.

When I start my truck and release the brake, the light on the dashboard remains lit. My brake reservoir is full and the fuse is not blown. is there another reason the light could be on?

Is there a can do it yourself maniual and is there a step by step process that would allow me to do so

what could cause this? Also, it's sluggish on pickup speed and now the steering wheel vibrates when going faster than 65mph. Also, the car seems louder than normal. Are these all related or separate?
thanks!

im replacing the head gasket and a few valves and i noticed while taking off the harmonic balancer that it had resistance in only one spot as i turned it. i repaced all the gaskets and some valves that were burnt, im on the reassembling part now. before i torque the harmonic balancer back i turned the crankshaft to see if the resistance went away and it didnt. my book says that it might be that the valves are contacting the pistons but i dont think so cause it was like that before i did the job, and i dont really want to take the cylinder head back off because the bolts holding it down are one time use stretch bolts $150 for new ones. Any advice

The problem started few months back , but if i left the car for an hour or so, it would start and it will be fine for 3-4 weeks and it do it again, now the car refuses to turnover or start at all.Can anyone tell me where is the crankshaft sensor situated in my car Mercedes E320 Elegance 6 cylinders.id it infront of engine or on the back of it? photos will be much appreciated.

How do I replace the bolt?

costs about the same? got an estimate which seems way out in left field.i am nearing the poor house now, this may put me over the edge!!

Car started cutting out on highway and would almost stall when taking off. Then it just quit running. Replaced fuel pump. Reads 0864 and 0964. Thanks

100K Had an engine light and the oil looked bad. The oil pan was dropped and cleaned. Mechanic said it did not look that bad. If it runs good and oil looks good in 5k we'll do timing belt and water pump. After 4 months and 2K miles car was running fine and oil looked good. So he replaced water pump and timing belt at 102K. Within 1 week it overheated. It was while air conditioning running in stop and go traffic. In a 2- 3 mile area. In 3 visits to the mechanic who did this work as a possible solution: 1) Flushed radiator ; replaced the cluth fan 2) replaced the other fan 3) replaced thermastat. I no longer turn on the air but if the car is run on the interstate at high speed for any real length of time (30-45 minutes) it will start over heating. I turn the heater on and it sucks out the heat long enough to get home. I live and work and do 90% of my travel in a 10 mile radius.
The car sounds and drives great all the other time. I have only 105K on this 2001.But some times you have to drive 70 for about 45 minutes. Do I give up and trade it in. I only put 4-5K miles a year at tops. Take it to the dealer since this tech has not figured it out.

The por latch pin on my driver's side was knocked loose, and now the plate that secured the bin to the inside of the door frame has fallen into the inside of th B-Post. I cannot find any way to access the B-Post, I have removed the interior panels, the rear seat, the rear inner fender, and from every angle it seems that there is a bubble around that plate and there is no way for me to access it. Has anyone else had this problem? We want to avoid cutting a hole, if we can.
