I have a 99 Ford Taurus, I just had the oil changed yesterday and while I was waiting I noticed an oil leak of some kind. the tech said it was transmission fluid. I think the seal might be gone cause it is a pretty good leak. What do you think it will cost to get that repaired??? PLZ. Help!!

I have recently had some overheating problems. When the A/C is on the temp starts to rise on the car. I would turn off the A/C and the temp would balanace out. I took it to the Valvoline shop and the mechanic told me my feron was out, so I got it refilled. That seem to solve the problem but after only two days it started to get hot again but only when the A/C is on. I am at a lost. COuld it be the thermostat? Waterpump? I just had a new radiator put in about 2 years ago. I'm taking it to FireStone for a complete system check. Hopefully, I can get some help there.

After the incident happened I drove to my mechanic who told me that the "pin" had been broken. The mirror itself is undamaged. The frame holding the mirror is undamaged too. I have interior controls to adjust the mirror. Not sure if these controls are electrical or not. My mechanic used Crazy Glue to attach the two halves of the pin. Then he positioned the entire mirror apparatus to the car with duct tape. Needless to say, this is just temporary.

My engine temperature get hot only with the A/C on when the outside temp. is over 88degrees or so. When I turn off the A/C, the temp. comes back down.

the mechanic says its an electrical problem. i also noticed when i get to a stop light, the air is not cold anymore, then when i accelerate it gets colder. windows wont roll down when i start the car up it takes acceleration before they will go down. when accelerating sometimes it seem to jump into fast mode. like backing up orjust stepping on the accelerater.

I have 158,000 miles on this ford and sometimes when I let off the car (ie to go down a hill or around the corner)then accelerate (usually up a hill or small incline) the car starts to spudder, hestitate and jerk. When it starts doing that I increase the gas pedal and it seems to stop. The tact does not spurge or anything when this happens. What could be wrong?
