I installed a timing belt, and it came off causing catastrophic damage to the valves(no excuse for interference engine Kia!) now I have replaced the valves and the timing belt, but it keeps moving off of the gears. Why?
I was replacing the stock stereo with an after market stereo. The stereo has a Yellow memory power wire with fuse, a red accessory wire for power a blue remote turn on wire and black ground wire (plus the speaker wires) The wire harness has the same colored wires, but also has an orange wire for illumination. After I installed it none of the dash lights work, and the dimmer dims the seat belt indicator on the dashboard. The rear defroster light comes on and turns off when the right turn signal is on and the right front orange parking light does not work. Very confused!!
I had this car for two weeks it was driving good, after being on the highway it started to slow down. It went down to 30 mph and now only pushing ten. I noticed the fuel filter was busted so i changed it and still nothing. Had it check on the diagnostics machine nothing came up about thr tranny. So im really lost. I need help figuring out what it is so it can get fixed properly. Please help...
When I'm backing out or pulling in while the wheel is turned, it's extremley hard to turn and it jerks a little bit. No noise, and power steering fluid is full. Also when I'm going between 65 and 70 the wheel shakes pretty bad. Tire pressure is good and they've been balanced.
The check engine light is on. The clerk at O'Reilly's told me that the engine is saying "oxygen sensors" needed. How many?
