i had installed two new tires last week. today that symbol (TPMS) came out. what does it means?

o you think it will be expensive to repair?
have tried STP and other lubes but issues continue.
Help !!!!! Want to sell car but can't with ticking noise.

Drove 3 hours,then topped off tank to very top,parked car for two days,when started engine would crank slowly and the car only started after pumping gas pedal and almost turned off during this process,the more I pumped the gas pedal the more the car would recieve fuel to start,When finally started no problems afterward.Battery is 6 months old([posts clean and tight),horn and lights working before problem,5-30 oil synthetic.For two years now autostart with alarm car would not start on first try but with ignition key right away,original plugs and wires,How do I get this checked without being taken for an expensive ride by a mechanic,so many variables here.

I have a 1999 BMW 323i. I recently found out the reverse light on my passenger side is out. I replaced the bulb and it still would not come back on. I then, checked the fuse box and found the fuse for the reverse light is in good condition. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?

I'm trying to clean the fuel tank of my 1993 Audi 80, (renamed as Audi 90 in the U.S.).
I took out the pump, the pump holder cup with the sieve, fuel gauge ...but how do I get the sediment bowl out?
First of all, does it come out? Does it come apart somehow, because it's bigger than the hole/opening on the fuel tank?
What about the little switch-thing on its right side? What is it for?
Thank you.

I JUST BOUGHT A OLDS INTRIGUE 3.8L. IT HAD A BAD LOW COOLANT SENSOR WHICH I REPLACED. I ALSO REPLACED THE ENG .TEMP. SENDER , THERMOSTST & GASKET ,HOSES,& RADIATOR CAP. FLUSHED THE ENGINE &RADIATOR A REFILLED WITH FRESH DEXCOOL ANTIFREEZE, FOR THE WINTER. SHORTLY THEREAFTER WHILE DRIVING I NOTICED THE ENGINE WAS GETTING TOO WARM. I OPENED THE HOOD AND NOTICED THE COOLING FANS WERE NOT RUNNING. I HAD TO MAKE UP A JUMPER WIRE FROM THE BATTERY TO A FAN TO GET HOME.MY OBD SCANNER READS "P1651 CIRCUIT /OUTPUT DRIVER MODULE (QUAD DRIVER ) 'B' QUICKSET FAULT ( SATURN) 2. FAN 1 RELAY CONTROL CIRCUIT. IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS I HAVE CHECKED THE RELAYS FANS MOTORS ALL CONNECTORS AND WIRING WITH NO SUCESS .A CONTINUITY METER SHOWS THE DARK GREEN GRD.WIRE FROM RELAY #1 TO THE COMPUTER BLUE CONNECTOR PIN #5 AS PER WIRING DIAGRAM APPEARS TO BE GOOD. BUT FANS DO NOT WORK. IF I RUN A JUMPER FROM PIN #5 TO THE #1 RELAY WIRE , THE FANS WILL RUN CONSTANTLY. IS THE COMPUTER BAD? WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON. WHAT AM I MISSING? GEORGE W....

not work nor does the heat, radio or the keyless entry what can i do to fix this the fuses under the hood are good is there more in the car I might need to change?

What else do I need to check or look for?

the check engine light was blinking and the whole truck starts to shake.

This should be an easy fix but I cannopt access the top part to remove the old one and replace it. How do I get at it? Remove dash pieces? If so how do I do that?

My civic is a CX. I was told that because it's a CX model they cound not replace just the catalytic conveter alone. the whole system would need to be replaced. the estimate was $1260. comment please BBarbb.

I'm relocating to California and need to know if my truck will pass emissions test. If not what will it need to be compliant?

The motor has great compression has good spark and is getting fuel the timing belt is perfectly in time and every ground has been checked and has a good ground the motor will turn over but will not start it will just wine no codes are shown on the diagnostic

After car has been run for a couple of hours the following happens: come to a stop, press on the gas and nothing happens. No rpm increase, nothing. Then all of a sudden it will take off.

The car gave no indication of trouble, slow start or hard to start, before this.
