Car was running fine one day. Went to McDonald's, ate, came back out and tried to start the car and it wouldn't start. We changed both the battery, the starter, the starter relay, and vacuum hose.What could it be? No lights had been on previously to warn me of anything happening. Lights in car still turn on as well
I changed the passenger side no problem but when I went to change the drivers side, I cant get it out. I called a local garage and they told me to just get 2 pry bars behind it and apply even force and it would come out. I cant even get 2 bars behind it so that was in an issue. I called and asked someone else I know that works on cars and they told me that it doesnt come out and that even if I did get it out that it would knock down the spider gears and then I would have to replace the transmission so leave that piece in and just take that piece of the new axle and attatch the rest of it to the old one thats in there now. I have no cue what to do. Can I leave the old piece in the transmission or do I have to get that out? and if I do knock it out from the passenger side will I knock down the spider gears? What do I do here because prying does nothing? Thanks
What would be making the car stall when it warms up?
I'm not getting an power at all what would that be an what would make it do that.an it keeps blowing fuse to
Now it shifts fine but it just revs a lot but it actually move a little on drive and reverse.you can feel it shift for the first 30 seconds after that you cant feel it shift anymore . The first 30 sec. You can feel it shift into gear.by the way its leaking some trans.fluid about a spoon a day.the breaks are not sticking
What seems to make the problem better or worse? first 30 sec. its moving fine.after that lots of revving moves a little
How long have you had this problem? one week, just right after i changed the trans.fluid and filter
2 weeks ago low coolent light came on so I added coolent and it's been running fine ever since. Today at stop light, smoke started coming from under hood. I turned the car off and waited approximately 8 min, 2 light cycles, then pulled over and turned the car off again. I checked my coolant and my oil and both are fine. No fluids leaked out at all. I drove the car home after the engine cooled down, driving with the heat on. I was able to get it home safely. ( I had been using the a/c at the time it overheated.)
The seal is leaking

Turns over, i have spark and fuel new timing belt double checked timing.
I put it in park, had my foot on the brake, and the emergency brakes on. I tried with other options, brake on / brake off, in park / in drive, Emergency brake on/off.
