The engine light in my mom's car came on again after tightening the fuel cap and having a mechanic check it. She is in her 70s and cannot afford a big repair. It has been very humid around here and she hasn't driven the car more than a few miles a day for about a month. Any ideas? I really hate when she gets ripped off for car repairs. Thank you.

My steering has Always been Horrible since I got the car. I kept going back to where I bought it & they said nothing was wrong. If I'm at higher speeds & I brake my car Vibrates & Shimmies like crazy! It's NOT my Rotors & it's NOT my Brakes!

Thanks!

I noticed this problem today. All measures of distance has switched from miles( American) to kilometers(Canadian).

how do you replace the cable on rear power window

No ac water dtains out under car after ac use.

my phone charger port wont work

someone said that it was the fuel pump1 another said that it might be the fuel filteror some thig under the car pertaing to the fuel might need cleaning out .

In addition to the doors no longer unlocking when I turn off the ignition, I also can't manually lock the doors with the power lock switch intermittently. Sometimes, if I keep trying to lock the doors 15 or 20 times, the doors will unlock rather than lock! When that happens, I have to go around the car and manually open and lock all of them. What's happening?

all four wheels and tires are brand new.

Three of the four bolts (both sides) are seized and the heads are stripped.

how do i fix this or do i have to get whole knew door handle?

Its happened about 4 times in the past 1 1/2 weeks. The car won't start. My wife or I have to put the key into the ACC position for 15-30 minutes, then the car will start. It's just happening more and more frequently. I'm afraid the system will permanently fail sometime. A website I saw about this tells me that my car will not have an anti-theft system if I do this. I'll manage that.

My power locks no longer lock when I start my ignition or unlock when I turn the car off. They also won't unlock with the power lock switch. When I get out of the car and try to lock the doors with the power locks, they either don't respond at all or, after pushing them a dozen times or more, they unlock rather than locking. Any ideas?

i hit a curb and the aframe got bent the tire rubs the wheel well. and the wheel is very bent.i have a pretty good nset of toolf but have not done this in my driveway evev.

the car keeps trying to turn on without the key in the switch so I have to unplug out the plugs I want to know why it is doing that

Friend changed my struts and now no power steering. I guess fuse blew?
would that be near battery? "EPS" stand for electronic power steering?
Thank you!

What causes this? Will I be able to fix this problem? Around how much will it cost me if I have problem fixed by a mechanic?

Need to keep adding coolant, where is it leaking from? Especially when using AC.

I HAVE CHANGED IT 4 times already an each time it blows causing my battery to die.

Car started making a pingy knock noise and performance went way down but we shut it off pretty quick

when I try to start my car it will not start nor turn over I have a new battery

My car drove home fine but will not restart. I checked all the fuses and all was good. when I try to start it my car it says nothing

when i reset ecm shifts fine for about 10miles then ck.engine light comes on shifts hard.

can you tell which fuse to change?

had my front brakes done by an auto shop not even a year ago, now brake calipers are bad and brake fluid is old and now a dark color.

Can I self repair?

I an getting a P0131 on my 2000 Malibu. I checked wiring and connections and then disconected the battery for a minute to turn off the check engine light. I started the engine and the check engine light instantly came back on. I would think it would take ar least a couple minutes for the code to set again. What problem would that indicate?

Over the last month, my car has been acting up. Taking longer and longer to turn over, removing the key and the engine still running! Now this morning, my car wouldn't start, wouldn't turn over and the key fab wouldn't work! Its completely dead! We tried to jump it and it melted the jumper cables! Help?!? Whats wrong?!?

What Im saying is when I cut the car off and take keys out, the radio doesn't cut off and the windows still are able to work AFTER I OPEN THE DOOR. Will that drain the battery? it just doesnt fell right cause I dont wanna be stranded any where because of this.

The key gets stuck in the acc. position. The only way i can remove the key is by shifting from park to drive and back to park a few times. Sometimes the key returns to off and i can remove the key with no problem.The shifter seems to be working OK. The car only has 39900 km. Can this be a shifter (switch) problem or do i need to replace the ignition cylinder. I just purchased the car 1 month ago and the key got stuck 2 or 3 times in the last week but now the key gets stuck almost every time i use the car. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thank you Bernie
