the needle on my gas guage will go upside down whenever i go over a bump in the road or a pot hole i think somthing might be loose

It just started yesterday, the gauge reads 60 when turned off, needle goes all the way to the right when the engine is on. No oil leak noted, engine runs normally (temp ok, no noise).

Camshaft was moved without making any markings so the timing is off.

Do I need to unbolt the caliper? I was thinking that on the back brakes this was not necessary.

service light comes on in cool weather but not in warmer weather

4x4. with a rod knock

The Volvo dealer says the control arms are bad and need replacing but I do not see it on your estimate sight.

I am getting a "tapping" sound coming from my rear-brake after replacing the Rear Brake Drums and Brake Shoes. I went to another sets of Brake Shoe from another manufacturer and even replaced the Drums a second time.

My care shuts off when I'm slowing down or if I give gas, and maybe not drive as fast, like maybe I hit the gas peddle too hard for the speed that I'm driving...I don't know.

We have changed (flushed) the transmission and changed the gasket and filter. Still is slipping hesitating to shift from 1st gear to 2nd gear

brake lights stay on with perfect when headlights off

I was told it would require a lot of labor and very few parts. Not sure what would be fair for that amount of labor.

I was driving down the road when it went off and it will not do anything.

When I drive local it doesnt burn oil but when i drive long miles, it burns about a quarter of a quart. So what is causing it to burn oil on long trips? You can see blue smoke and smell oil buring

As i said above i believe my egr valve is clogged up so i need to find it and blow it out, and i also need help with a little power problem. My car sat for two years infront of my house, and wasn't really ran. when i received it the car ran with no problem at all, aside from the windows being off track because it was in an accident previously. Well now the battery is drained everytime i go to get in the car. i have to charge it everyday that i don't drive it, and when i do drive it it's to see if there are any other problems i can find. we believe that the battery problem will hopefully subside once i get the car running good and drive it everyday. what could be causing this?
