car was going fine and then all of a sudden a red flashing light appeared on the dash

Oil leaking from timing belt cover

Is this a maintence warning?

i've looked every where & can't find an ajutment screw

I had one of the guys at Advance Discount Auto do diagnostics on it & the results were "P0449 Evaporative Emission Vent Valve Solenoid Malfunction". The gentleman said it was probably a specific part but he couldn't be sure which one.

Just bought this car 3 weeks ago. Last week service engine soon light illuminated and stayed on. Advance Auto tested and code was P0550. Gas cap is good, so they suggested Fuel Injector Cleaner and reset light. 2 days later when I went to start the car, it hesitated just for a second before starting and light was on againand has been on now for 3 days. Should I try the cleaner again or replace the EGR valve? They told me that it could be that. I don't have money to do a full engine scan right now (about $90+) and will be starting a much needed job in about a week. Would it hurt to drive it for 2 weeks until I get a paycheck? Also would it hurt if I start using higher octane fuel? I now use 87.

I've been told it could be a temperature sensor, fuel pump, fuel filters, the computer? I don't know where to begin.

have a 1997 f-150 with the 5.4 motor ive replaced all 8 plugs and coils its mising and losing power and jerks no check engine light on or it shows no codes.what could be the deal?? also how do i go about replaceing the 5.4 with a older 302 motor?

In the beginning my car would crank over every time when starting, now when trying to crank it shakes and then a whirring sound, then nothing. It won't catch. After numerous tries I now get a clicking noise, tried at first to boost the battery that was just purchased and after doing so car still won't catch and the above still happens (whirring/whinning) and now the car says absolutely nothing. Please help! Out of ideas and out of money.

The volume knob and power sunroof just stopped working and the powersource/cig lighter does not work, cant find any blown fuses- please help

My car clogs up when refueling. (Gasoline returns back no matter how slow I pump fuel into the tank.

Thanks for any help

The check light in the dashboard comes on and off for no apparent reason for the air bag. No particular times or braking or acceleration. What should I be looking for first?
