the air conditioning is blowing through the defroster and the check engine light, charging light and the oil light ll are blinking? What is wrong with this car? Has been woring fine until tonight,although the ac has been hesitating to start the last couple of days.

the light was of a wrench
picture. and ion the book it said something about" throtal body and i was in a limp home mode. and to see the dealer. first time ever. 51,000 miles. Started fine later in the day and drove just fine, what is wrong???

I have to charge my battery every morning for about half an hour just so my car starts. Once i turn my car off and wait for a couple hours, it won't turn back on due to my battery being dead. If i charge my battery for longer than 30 minutes, ex; 4-5 hours, i'm able to turn my car on after a couple hours compared to not being able to when charging it half an hour.

Light gets brighter during acceleration. Voltage on battery while running is 14.2 volts, even with all accesories on, so assume regulator is working.Belt tension seems ok, no loose connections, battery cables good. Last few days, gauges will drop out, at night cluster lights go out, engine will hesitate slightly day or night. This alternator was new NAPA brand and took 2 days for me to install, could it have a bad diode? I don't trust the auto store checks because last year it recorded no problems with altenator even when regulator was bad and voltage would drop with each accessory turned on. I have read quite a few threads on this and everyone had a different answer. NAPA part has lifetime warranty, but dread the change again.

Trying to find disc brakes from used camaro to fit my 1967 camaro.

do i have to change the front air strut with another air strut or can i get rid of the air strut and replace with something else.

What is a ballpark figure to replace a timing belt?

Problem seems to occur after car had been sitting 9 hours and then driven short distance (2 miles) parked briefly (1/2 hr or less) driven another short distance and parked briefly. Fuel pump relay and crank sensor have been replaced.

passenger side air is hot no matter where control is set.

under the hood loud muffler noise, car losing power when trying to speed up

hit the gas pedal no engine response to accelerate the car

not leaking sterring fluid but makes a really squeaky sound when you turn and is very hard to turn or wont turn at all.

My H3 literally stopped on me while driving. I pull over and while waiting for a ride, I try it, and it starts. Decide to take it in to the closest mechanic, get about two blocks, and it stops again. Won't start. Towed to Firestone. No Check Engine Light on. Firestone calls the next afternoon, states the "codes" in the system call for sensor (Cam Shaft and something else) but they replaced them and now the computer is locked. Have to take to GM/Hummer Dealer-4 blocks away. Mechanic states "it will run for about 15mins so go ahead and get there pretty quick". Start truck, Check Engine Light is now ON.
Call from GM dealer two days later- Good news and bad. Good news is, its a fuel pump, bad news is its $1200 to fix.
As a side note, picked the H3 up from body work two days before this happened....hit a deer on the driver's side....should say vaporized a deer on the highway, and had just had $3200 in body work done on the truck.

1. Related to deer damage?
2. Really $1200??
3. Noticed a problem with these "lean codes" etc that suggests replacement or repair of engine. I don't want to do that, BUT I don't want to pay 1200 for the wrong fix and still be out the engine/engine work.

When my 2003 Expedition is completly full of fuel, it starts with no problems; but below a half tank it is difficult to start.
