ive noticed at high speeds, or passing a truck or driving along side a wall, I hear a vibration.. Upon inspection the retainers for the rear wheel wells are not very tight and it appears that the noise is coming from the wheel wells when I am doing any of the above type of driving.. can anyone help? are there better retainers to purchase?
I've never changed Trans fluid.
It has freon and works fine around town. Quits being cold on long drive.
I took it to Goodyear and they said it had moisture in it and charged me to empty an clean and then redo the freon. But still the same problem.

My sister has a 2013 KIA Sportage. One day as she was getting out of it, she took the key out of the ignition and got out, but it was still in D (drive)! Is this normal for KIA Sportage or any KIA's? My 2016 Camry won't let me take my key out unless it's off and in P (park)!
I have all the mechanic's manuals, but the tensioning seems so inconveniently located as to require removal of other stuff just to accomplish what should be basic maintenance. Surely there's a simple way to do this.
My car vibrates very bad when i start it n runs poorly
