checked the fuses and can't find one that's bad. also cigg. lighter went out fuses look good. is there an easy (cheap) way of locating/fixing the problem?
It would run decent then bad now it has over heated & I think a hose is busted, what do I do? I can't really afford to put it in the shop right now!
I was driving down the highway about 45mph and suddenly nothing it wouldnt move. I had lossof power and then nothing.
My car has been running fine then out of no where my car loses power. The brakes get hard and the car seems like it goes into neutral. I'll shut the car off and let it cool down, even though it never overheats, and then the car will run like normal. This is the second time it's happened this week. I checked all the fluids and nothing is low.
I just bought my 96 prizm, I was driving it home ( brakes are bad ) so as I went slow down I put the car in neutral and pulled emergency brake, stopped. Went to put it back in gear and it wouldn't move. I can move the shifter to any gear. But the car isn't changing gear. And I can roll while the car says it's In park.

The trans shifted smooth all the way home. Didn't jerk or anything

Now if I start the car put it in drive try to go it wont, and when I go back to put it in park it sounds like I'm grinding a gear in a 5speed. If I go from park to neutral and back to park it doesn't grind.

Please help

It is leaking bad when engine turns off down by the pump or seals. When i take the radiator cover off It stops. I dont know exactly which one. I am troubleshooting small to big. Air is cold, Heat is fine, Oil is clear, belts are fine. I am at a lost. The Haynes book is not good on pictures either. Anyone out there to help a lady. Thanks
It acted as if it was going to crank at first, but I think it was just the gas in the line. It acts as it there is no gas. I know it Wil be a great car, I just have to get it up and running like the champ that it is. Previous owner DID NOT take care of it and whoever their mechanic was needs a new profession.
I nave replaced bearings, seals,races, cv shafts, had a alignment done. Even bought new tires. I have done everything I know to do what am I missing?
