sometime the auto headlights work and then they will not come on and we have to use the high beams at night.

I cannot see control buttons at night.

Changing/flushing coolant is an obvious one. However are there any other biggies that I should take care of before the winter sets in? I don't want to spend $1000's on repairs... especially since this is an 19 year old car. I just want to tune up the essentials so that it is dependable through the winter.

Sometimes my air bag light comes on sometimes stays on and sometimes flickers along with all other interior lights and when using my headlights it does the same.My security light has started coming on and sometimes doesn't. We have replace the computer brain and it is not it. When hooking the computer to the car it does not put out any codes to what is wrong with it! The mechanics can't figure it out that I have had trying to fix it. Please if anyone has any idea please let me know.

its totally bent in from me hitting a buck. doesn't look like engine damage, but first step is to replace the core support. Is it gonna be a hard job to do?

Noticed this week that my engine temperature was running higher than normal and then all of a sudden it was in the red. Let it cool back down for a few hours drove it and the temp rose back up to just below the red. I don't see any signs of leaks. I turned it back on and let it run, the fans don't appear to be running. Not sure if that is the problem or water pump or thermostat. Any help would be useful, Thanks.

need pic layout or blow by blow pics would be helpfull or schematic

I just bought it yesterday the previous owner said it needed power steering fluid is it also possible that a smog check could have caused this.

It seems everytime I have my brakes changed on my Rendezvous I am told that the rotors need to be replaced. Is this normal. I thought they could turn the rotors instead of replacing them. The service adds another $200 to $300 for the work.

One rear shock has oil leaking, but air suspension does not seem to be a problem. When I had tires replaced, I was told that I had a leaking shock. I had previously seen that while replacing brake pads, so I have a pair of the shocks. If I wait to replace them, will the air compressor for these air shocks also need replacing?

starter lock in fly wheel.

I push on the gas petal and i swear i could push the car faster then it goes and in a 1/4 mile it would normally get up to 60 less then halfway through a 1/4 mile and now i am lucky to 45 now in a 1/4 mile. (The 1/4 mile is from my diveway to the stop sign at the end of my road.) Then one day went to auto zone to get a cooling fan relay (Just the high fan) put the new one in and that is when it started not getting up and going) But once you get up to speed, well basically once your in 3rd gear or higher, no poblems, i can step on the gas and it gets up and goes like it should runs beautiful, but come to a stop and it take for ever to get up to speed. Before it had overheating issues because we didn't know it at the time that the cooling fans didn't work and it was super hot this past summer and there is a small crack in the radiator. Could it have something to do with the vacuum system, ive checked the lines and they are good, and connected they are only about 6 months old. (It is the 3.8Litter V6 and the tranny was rebuilt about a year ago because it was slipping. ) It would be awesome if you could answer this question. Thank you

4 wheel brake job resurface 4 rotors replace pads

I took my car in to check out the engine check light which is on. They said it needs a new computer module. After talk to a freind of mine he stated that it is usually a faulty wire. How long should it take for a machnic to go thru and check out the wiring for the computer and what should the charge to replace it.

I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my Mom's car, a 2002 Buick LaSabre. Here are the issues: First, windshield wipers would not turn off (for a couple of weeks) even when they were in the "off" position, now the windshield wipers won't work anymore; the emergency brake light stays on when the emergency brake is not set; the ABS system warning light is on (and has been on for months now); the car starts some times and some times it won't. My experience is that it doesn't "sound" like it's trying to start. There is a little click sound though when trying to start the car. Any suggestions?

then somtimes it runs fine for afew days then it stalls again
