The car died driving down the road. Went back later and it started and ran fine. The next day didn't start. The battery was weak so replace that. checked the charging and that is ok. Put fuel pressure gauge on. Has 53 psi with key on. The car started 2 different times after checking pressure. Now it dosen't start at all just cranks. Any idea's?

my engine overheated once and then the second time i was on an interstate and the engine died to were i had to pull over. i dont have much money and want to know it this can be fixed

Recently I let my vehicle sit for atleast two months after replacing BCM. So I finally replace my transmission filter but now I hear a tapping sound coming from the engine. I have replaced spark plugs and change the oil using synthetic oil also. Now temperature stays at normal level. When I put the vehicle into reverse it tends to jerk. Once I put the vehicle into drive it begins to drive but acts as if its missing until I get into higher speed and runs fine until I slow down. Also I my check engine light flashes on and off.

i have understood that by putting in an aftermarket stereo without the module sometimes the comp. starts to act funny could that be my problem? that happened to me when i put different size tiers on my car when i took it in all they did was reset the comp.

what is happening to the car?

My driver's side temperature control is kicking out cold air and my passenger's side is kicking out hot air no matter how I adjust the temperature. I don't know if there is a fuse that is blown or if I need to replace something else...?

The car has a column shifter. I have replaced the brake switch,
the shifter, the interlock switch, shifter cable and etc. Shifter works fine if cable is not attached to transmission. I can shift transmission with a wrench, but hook the two together and shifter and transmission will not shift out of park. Please help.

JUMP START DRIVE HOME-AROUND TOWN GOOD ONCE AGAIN DEALER CKS SAYS BATTERY, NO SHORT, NO SLOW DRAIN ALL GOOD CAN'T FIND PROBLEM. CKS EVERYTHING-HAPPENED AGAIN FOLLOWING WEEK DROVE 50 MILES 40 MINUTES LATER DEAD BATTERY- AAA JUMP START- SEENS IF I DRIVE 1 OT EVEN 2 HOURS STRIGHT AND STOP BATTERY IS DEAD ANY SUSJESTION ON WHAT MIGHT BE CAUSING THIS- THANKS

took it to auto zone and they said it was the #3 cylinder misfiring..so i changed fuel injector and still blinks over 30 mph

the temperature or turn on the a/c for at least a minuet.the only time it doesnt make the noise is when i put up the heat only when i lower to cool or a/c.

my front end has a fairly constant shake in it, even at lower speeds that gets progressivly worse as your speed climbs. Also if i make a sharp turn it feels wierd, like something is trying to keep the wheels from turning. Tires are only a few months old and i recently replaced my hub bearing assemblys on both front wheels during the 100,000 mile tune up. wht could cause these things and are they related?

not sure where that is located

The car shut off while i was driving and its not working now

It shut off several times while pulling out of a parking lot, and once while actually driving on the street. I took my car to Autozone and they ran a computer scan on it because the check engine light was on. I was told that the camshaft position sensor showed up in every code, so I took it to a shop but they said that the sensor was good. The next day after getting it out of the shop, it shut off again. But this time, it sounded as if i was revving the engine, after i restarted it and started to go. I was hardly pressing the pedal though.

do i need to change my cam shaft position sensor an d if so were is it located 2006 chevy impala lt 3500

I see that there was a recall for air bag issues back in 2010. My airbag light is on. I have been told it is about 250.00 to fix it. Would this be part of the recall? I have also noticed that when it is really hot out the light goes out?

Exactly what was wrong with my 05 impala after changing the transmission fluid at 75,000 miles. No one could figure it out and no one would listen to me since I am a girl. I had the exact same problem with my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix SE. I finally found a transmission guy who would listen to me...changed the solenoid...problem fixed! He asked me how I knew what it was...I told him I had that problem before. He thanked me because he had the same problem with another of his clients' vehicles and couldn't figure it out. Ha! We aren't all oblivious at everything carwise!

i have a 2001 ls impala and had the heads and transmisson repair after the transmisson a knocking noise started

This problem developed following a replacement of the turn signal sensor, the mechanic did the repair via the steering column/ under the dash. Never failed to start before this.

Dealership wants over $1500 for repairs to replace broke engine mount, replace evap vent solenoid, oil filter adapter housing gasket & pressure control solenoid (code p1811 max adpt long shift.) I have a guy that said he'd fix if I buy parts but I'm not sure how involved and/or difficult the repairs will be. He said most of time somebody mechanically inclined can make repairs if given steps or guidance.

dont know where the lines from compresser goes cause someone took out the lines so i dont know what they took out what connectors i need from the radiator can i get a diagram for it to see what i need

I can be stopped at a light and all of a sudden I hear my engine reving and if I take my foot off the brake the car moves fairly quickly!

It also felt like my transmission was grabbing a little as I started out. Someone said it might be my traction control. It just started yesterday Is this of any concern? It also said my engine power was reduced which it didn't seem to be.

There was a big storm and I ran over trees, went through creeks where bottom of car was dragging. That's why I wondered if maybe a line of some sort cracked or could be leaking. Just seems odd that I didn't have any leaks until right after this happened. I feel like they just said this code means you need pressure control solenoid & it'll cost you over $700 instead of offering other possibilities.

Took car to dealer because I had a small leak and I noticed car seemed to be shifting a little rough. They told me the adapter housing gasket was BIG job and it would be almost $300 of the total. The pressure control solenoid had to be replaced immediately or transmission could fail--pricetag of $700. They're supposed to be sending codes but haven't seen them yet. Are they taking advantage of my lack of knowledge?

whining sound was why had it ck, sound still there +trac lite comes on, ab lite, trac lite goes off after restart,sounds like it needs power steering fluit in it????

Car is throwing a P0420 code, I've had the cat. converter replaced (sept 2011). What other problems could this be? I had both O2 sensors replaced in May 2009, could they be bad already?
