Just bought the car took to advance auto they say needs repair on this O-ring.

Recently changed the starter tried to start the car fuse blew hot wired it how long is this short fix last and is it safe to drive on the hwy

has less than 1 hundred 20 thousand km
Started to notice it about a week ago, got progressively worse until I almost didn't make it home a couple nights ago. At that time I was traveling at approx 80km per hr. tranny was slipping from drive to neutral and back again as I was driving on the hwy. This transmission apparently doesn't require a filter so that isn't the problem. Up till now it's been a good car to me so I'm really hoping it won't require a new transmission to get it back on the road. I just can't afford that kind of expense. Someone on this forum said something about a pump, anyone know anything about that?

Belt broke, had it replaced. Now its running rough, from pocket diagnostics I thought it needed the Master Air Flow Sensor replaced but once installed its not the problem. Any idea what it could be?

How do I tighten it? Is this dangerous?

I am replacing the heater core on my 1996 Ford Contour. Screws are stripped and cant get anything into the tight spot to remove them on the duct up under the dash board. What do I do?

It doesn't blow no air out what so ever..

Every once in a while my car will start then act like it isnt getting fuel and die. If I let it sit for a few minutes, it will start if I turn the key on to let the fuel pump run for a few seconds then runs with no problems. The issue started after I parked on the side of the road at a steep angle. It does it after the car has been running for an hour or so and is turned off for about 15 mins. We have owned the car since July, it just started doing it. Fuel pump or fuel filter? The car was sitting for about a year before we bought it.

how do I fix this?? The motor resistor has been replaced.

What is the little hose pre-Molded that comes out of the air filter box called? Mine was cut

so my car stalled and got it towed to the shop. they said it was the fuel pump. it was changed and a whole new tune up, coil pack, plugs, wires ect. the car is still in the shop and they are baffled. they say its fuel pump wiring but they cant seem to find where exactly. someone help please.....

I noticed a slapping noise coming from the engine when I took the belt cover off that is where the noise is coming from.

one electrical & one mechanical,according other forums. will a high mileage timing belt jump a notch? the only performance problem seems to be a small blog about the time check engine flashes on, good gas mileage, good idle,average power. any help will be good like, where to start checking p/s have order new vct solenoid connector look kind of shaky.
