rotors are worn. would like to do job myself.

check all the fuses inside and out .the car break lights work .the over head light works just the dash lights wont come on .. kinda at a stand still to why they wont come on.

I've checked the battery, fuses, plug wires, etc. It turns over and I have gas and cylinder compression but no spark. The battery is new and the NGK plugs are new also.

99 Galant that turns on and runs but then after about 20 minutes it shuts off. When we try to turn it on again it starts but shuts off immediately. It's all the time occurrence to where we have to leave it parked.

red hot when i start the car. and the car will not stay runing .

Usually it's all in the wrist, but during cold temps I have to click the key in the ignition forward once and let it sit for 30 seconds before I try turning the key again. It'll spring back, and I immediately turn the key for the car to start. It's been doing that for about a year or longer. Today, with outdoor temps about 20, nothing. Any ideas what I need to replace? I called three mechanics and got three answers.

I've replaced the battery, altonator, and starter. And the battery still will not hold a charge!!! whats the deal????

gas in it the car wont turn over it wants to but wont. can u please help me out with this problem please and thank u.

i checked the fuses under the hood, and the daytime running lights fuse is good but the 2 10 amp fuses for the dim lights dont have power to them.

Is there anything I can use to stop the squeelling? I had the belts checked and was told that they are not loose, so what can I do?

Turned over fine for a week after new starter and battery installed then it quit turning over. New battery discharges, however, I chagred it back up and still it will not turn over. All connections are tight. Something causing the battery to discharge and something not allowing the charged battery to turn over the starter.

I just had my timing belt and crankshaft sensor replaced. Car runs fine but once i turn on the heater the cars rpm/idle needle starts moving uncontrollably and the car start to misfire by shaking and not wanting to accellerate. The check engine light also goes on but i had the light check and it says it needs a tuneup which i already did with new parts. I dont know what to do.

I'm planning to buy a used car, but it already has 98,000 miles. What is the average mileage for an automatic transmision for this kind of car? Because maybe I will need to change it soon.

go go high on rmp a 2 should stay in 1

My car makes a very loud screeching noise only in reverse all the time, brakes applied or not. I have checked the rotors and they seem fine. This is getting very irritating and would like to find the problem so I can fix it!

Thank you, Brett

The engine was dying at stops then the car would no longer start. It now has new plugs, wires, computer, fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. It still will not start. Someone suggested that it could be an electrical problem. What else should we check for? Before we replaced the computer, when it was still running, I noticed a build up of carbon in the tail pipe. I was assuming that because of the bad computer, the car was getting too much fuel. Don't know where to go from here. Have had it in a couple of shops and they can't seem to diagnose it correctly either. I would scrap it if I didn't have so much money in it, plus it has fewer than 90,000 miles on it. Thanks!

how do you adjust the air gap in the crankshaft position sensor in a 2002 mitsubishi galant?

veh. has 145,000 miles and occasionally I hear a "clunk" sound in the right rear of the vehicle? after i go over a bump or speed hump.

While driving the timing belt broke which caused damage to the head. I had both replaced also the cam and shaft sensors and a nother belt. Now that they have it put together it wont get a fire.
