Airconditioning does not work, heating works fine. Compressor was not working, so replaced it with new unit. No power at compressor. Also noticed I do not have out side temp. and engine temp indication. For engine temp. replaced coolant temp sensor/sender unit, but no help.
Fuel tank indicator is also at E, regardless fuel tank is full or half.

My ac and heat does not come out , it comes on and i see the temp reading but nothing comes not blowing. someone said i can tap on the blower motor, but i'm not sure where that is located. Took it to auto zone they checked the fuses and the were all good. Is there a relay that i can reset.Also my gas guage does not work unless i go over a speed bump or when i first crank the car up then it goes back to empty. i set the miles now and try not to go over 200 miles per full tank. how can i fix this, what kinda gas should i be using.

Green light on dash saying brake wear has been on for a week, how soon do i need to get it done and how long can i continue to use car as is??

I got the oil change and service guys could not reset the servicedisplay

went for an oil change 2yrs ago and then my car started leaking oil. It smokes from the top. I've had gaskets put on and nothing has changed. Now I'm getting oil in my coolant. It's like a greenish mixture, but not throughout just on the top. The oil light and coolant light comes on often and I just keep them filled so it will not run out. Today I found out that my water pump is going out. What can I do to stop the oil leak after I get the water pump replaced? The car has 230,000 miles

i replaced the motor, and now need to replace the fuse. the one i pulled was a littelfuse 299 32V number on the side says 06393,,and it is green 30A ...have been told this might not be the correct do you have any suggestions....also do i need one that says time delay since the wiper can be set to different intermittent speeds.
