Replaced transmission; water assembly hose/pump;new thermostat and all fluid levels checked and filled in 1989 Buick century w/ 100,000+ miles. I have added anti-freeze twice in reservoir in the last month.No signs that there might be a leak. Once I pull off road and wait the needle falls to center of gauge but within minutes of driving it goes right back to hot.

My car will just die every now and then when I am driving or stopped at a light for no reason at all. The cars runs great but it does this sometimes. The car will always start right back up but when it stalls. Just horrible though when u are driving 35 mph and ur car just dies though.

Problem occurs after car has been driven for a short while; transmission "kicks" into gear, then gets sluggish. I can hear a faint whine as well. Someone suggested it may be a bad transmission selonoid? Not sure what that means.

I just installed new radio in my car about 14 months ago. It played ok for about 12 months,and the audio for the radio stations stopped playing. The CD has audio the clock works, and every other function works fine. Its just the radio audio quits working. I took it back out of the dash and unplugged it and reinstalled twice it and it will play for about 3 or 4 days and quit again. The radio audio is the only thing that stops working. If someone could come up with solution for this I would really appreciate your help.

I had to have my transmission replaced a year ago last December and it cost me $3200. I went to another place later and he told me it would cost me $2200 if he had done it. It sounds like I was taken for a ride, was I?

is it normal to have a rough ride after replacing the struts, it sounds like something is loose when I hit a bump

I had my car in the shop about 7 weeks ago because my car, upon driving after braking, would make a high screeching sound and be hard to steer forward. No matter where I was, the only way to move forward was to turn off the motor and turn it back on. The diagnostics showed nothing and the AntiLock light and Service Engine Soon light would come on. They thought it was a sensor and reset whatever so the lights would go off. Alas, they found nothing wrong.

The problem is recurring with the Anti Lock and the Service Engine Soon light coming on. I had it "to" the shop and I was told if it was the brakes that they had to hear or have it act up within their presence as it would be mechanical. I have had mechanics in the car, 3-4 times now, and driven a short while but nothing happens.

This past Saturday and Sunday, the car brakes seemed to lock and made a screeching noise twice. Twice I had a line of cars behind me in a traffice lane and one of those times, I had a big line behind me when I locked up trying to enter a divided highway at night. One of the times I was in a parking lot and a man walking down the asphalt told me it sounded like it was my brakes. He said it was so loud it startled him.

I never know when this will happen, but I'm terribly afraid this is going to cause a bad accident and people are going to be seriously injured or killed. This is happening 3-4 times a week now and I'm not even driving a lot.

The car repair shop (I was there twice last week) is a reputable chain shop, but I am getting nowhere and it seems I am not being taken seriously about the problem. I'm at my wits end. Any thoughts, on this issue, before someone gets seriously hurt, maimed, or killed?

Thank you,

The window goes down slowly and up even more slowly...takes forever, less than an inch at a time

gear indecator light does not work at all

I just want to drain the radiator without changing hose.

Brown Automotive diagnosed "oil in coolant with internal engine light" as internal engine damage (possible cracked head or block or head gasket but not the intake gasket). Their paper-work shows "34 engine cooling" and "32 engine mechanical". They recommend an engine replacement. Should I consider this an accurate assesment or get another opinion?

Would my car have any warning signs or sounds if the engine had problems?

we are tryiong to put new brake cylinder on the rear

My right washer has stopped working the left is fine. What do I have to take apart to to repair this problem.
