Car starts and runs fine but the engine does not stop when you turn the key off. Just started this morning car has around 75,000 miles. Its my daughters car and I'm thinking either ignition switch, a module or lock cylinder/

fluid leaking between fill tube and transmission

Just acquired car. Trying to determine if anything disconnected could cause instruments to not work (before replacing components, e.g instrument cluster etc.) Fuses checked, everything else seems to work OK.

top bolt are hard to see.

The car makes a constant squealing noise. At first we thought it just needed WD40, but after looking at the pulley, it needs a new belt. My husbands wants to know if we can just bypass the AC pulley altogether, or does he need to replace the whole Serpetine Belt?

it is the 1996 intratec 4 valve double overhead cam model.

the fuel gauge is pointing straight up.....temp and radio are ok....518 265 3900...ken

The cap is rusted real bad. I have to drain the coolant to fix the oil leak. How do i get the cap off crossover tube? Is their another way to add coolant and burp air out?

While the car was idling, the engine started smoking and the temp guage was rising to hot. The hoses and water pump seem to be ok.

Also what do i need to install switches?


computer screen is dark and needle on gas gauge points straight up

Even if i completely disconnect the stereo system I am get very very loud noises through my speakers which occured after installing the air ride conversion kit. I have tried disconnecting the system in the back of the trunk.. Is there a fuse or other system i need to turn off? Sounds like a short, but i cant find it. It comes on randomly and scares the driver because its totally unexpected......

The shop that we've always trusted says $800.00 but from what I've researched it doesn't seem to be that involved.

I have installed a new AC compressor, dryer and orifice. Vacuumed the system and recharged. The AC does not work. The height pressure line is very hot, the low is not cold. The pressure in H.line builds up to 500. What could be a problem?

Need to get this car to South Carolina where I can replace the rack. Can I bypass the rack and drive without power steering? Dont want to have to replace the pump too. Can that be looped to itself? Pressure switch at the pump can that be jumpered/fooled?

other functions work just not reverse, it moves forward just a tad when you hit the key fob and now it's to far fwd to drive..switch seems to be in good condition(contacts and pwr and gnd..etc.) but it doesn't want to do what it's told. move it one way and something completely diff. happens???at a loss. please help

Within a couple days, the entire front end of car sank. When started, compressor will come on but bags DO NOT INFLATE. I think Goodyear is responsible for this and damaged my vehicle. Air System was working fine before they installed the new tires.

On starting red light goes off (like it should)but, a mile or two down the road it comes on, for the past 3 days. I had an oil change and filter done right away, oil level is good, still the oil light comes on after a short drive down the road. The oil pressure sender was replaced 5 months ago, along with trans rebuilt and oil leaks from the engine area. I recently had a new fuel filter installed,alternator,tune-up,steering column and well you name it, and now this...light! Over all the engine never misses a beat.

my car cranks but wont start

I went to a gas station and pumped $10.00 worth of gas into the Lincoln. I went back home which is a mile. When I went out to start the car the next day the engine turned over good, but acted like it was out of gas.I think a relay must have gone out, but I am not sure where the relay is except the red button switch located on the left inside of the truck. The red button was ok. Email- eagleowl
