Took it to Jr @ Ray's Auto Repair in goldsboro nc. He changed thermostat again & said it needed a new waterpump to stop overheating & needed to blow the air though the inlet of the heatercore to unclog it. We picked the car up & the same mechanic JR @ Ray's said don't worry if you smell antifreeze until it burns off of motor because it blew all over from blowing the air out of heatercore.!! So , about 15 miles away , the engine light came on & stayed on & it runs like a 3 legged dog! Misfiring ! 10 of those miles were from Ray's Auto Repair to our home !, & this was around the holidays so we didn't drive the car until 6 days later & about 5 miles down the road is when it started.!!

I also had to make a new key at the dealership and the abs light is on I tried jump starting it and nothing just a clicking sound when I turn the key all the lights come on bright

We need a tune up, valve gaskets replaced, Y pipe for exhaust replaced, ignition coils and a few other things plug an oil pan gasket. I feel for my mechanic. We didn't know the engine wasn't from the same year.

Into gear what that mean the transmission is damaged.

4wd light is flashing when all-wheel drive is not working

within a couple of days I checked the engine oil stick and it was totally empty !

i noticed then that the radiator coolant was okay. the very next day the upon rechecking the engine oil - now okay - but the radiator coolant holder/container was now totally empty !

please what is happening ?

Chokes/coughes. Spews white smoke out tail pipe. Wont hold an idle. Brake lights, ABS lights, coolant lites and airbag lites on but nothing wrong w breaks. How much is this gonna cost me and whats wrong w my car?

We finally tried pumping the gas pedal and it almost started but then misfired (loud pop under the hood). When the key is turned part way there's a high-pitched whirring noise.

was able to hold 40 mph then steadily dropped to 0mph. Now runs loud an dont know what else to look at. Took out the part on the bottom an got all the honeycomb stuff out an that didnt fix anything. HELP I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO LOOK INTO ON IT AN HOW TO SEE IF ANY OTHER PART IS BAD!!!

Sometimes I may have to turn key 10+ times (no sound at all) until it catches. Colder weather seems to make it worse. Ignition cylinder has some play in it. Starter or Ignition cylinder or ???

My oil light comes on when the car is running but stopped so i had my oil changed and it still comes on. Can someone tell me why.and what i need to do.

ABS light flashed a few times and then turned off. What could be the problem?

O/D Off flashing and hesitates when put in reverse. What could it be? Thanks!

New radiator,water pump,thermostat and capped off heater. It is still over heating. Any ideas?

Someone told me that the electrical contacts and get dirty over time and that they can be cleaned. What can you tell me about the problem and how to solve it?

Check engine light is on

My wife drove the vehicle around for 2 days after check engine light came on, and it done fine. the next morning it wouldn't start, but it would turn over. The fuel pump kicking in, but I don't know what could be the problem. Do anyone have any suggestions please help

when this happens, i will have to turn off the ignition and start the engine. and it will start immediately
