I'm referring to fixing the common problems by strengthening the parts that most commonly go out.what are those parts?I do transmission work and would like to strengthen mine before I have to do a complete rebuild.
The car has 107k miles on it, almost everything replace. From air filter to t-belt and water pump.
Two weeks ago radiator leaked, only found out while driving as car started to smoke. I stopped immediately and had the car towed to mechanic. Mechanic advised head gaskit is ok but the radiator needs to be replaced because it was leaking from the bottom. Also the transmission fluid was low. Mechanic replaced the radiator and thermostat. Also flushed and refilled trans fluid because he thought there might be cross contamination (don't know why). After 2 weeks it appears now that the car is having problem in accelerating. Any ideas?
I would like to know if these are problems I can fix myself, and how would I go about it?
It used to be getting 25-26 miles per gallon. And I used premium gas (91 octane). What's wrong?
battery light on
it has a battery that is only 10 months old and a new alternator...any ideas what could be causing this new problem of not starting? When I put the key in and turn it, I get nothing.
I replaced the bank 2 sensor 1, than my engine light when away the next day it returned. I went with a bosch o2 sensor, does brand matter?Or Do I have a bad sensor? Or do I need to replace the other sensor in front next to the fan as well since they work together please help I dont want to take it to the dealer and pay through the nose for something I can change myself.
