Can you tell me why this happens?
I have car for several months, ran a little hot(my opinion) not good gas mileage. Began to run rough. Stopped car. When started then began to overheat stopped car found loose connection that plugged into back of radiator on side by fill bag, black sensor type plugged back in refilled fluid. Using lots of fluid but not leaking out anywhere. Temp begins to increase when engine is turned on and low coolant light comes on, when refill coolant temp drop light and indicator go off and then everything happens again fluid is drained into radiator, lights and indicator come on, temp gauge rapidly rises, no fluid appears underneath car or anywhere under or around engine,.
over then just stall out any ideas on how to fix this issue maybe a o2 sensor or tps sensor? Also my heat only comes out of the top and bottom but wont come out of the middle. ive looked for broken vacuum lines and found nothing. Any ideas would be very helpful.
plenty of air is coming out of the lower vents and the defrost vents
i have a 1998 oldsmobile regency, and the fan control works, its got the electronic little screen, so you can see it go up and down, somedays the blower motor works, and somedays it just doesnt come on at all, any help would be appreciated
my interior lights come on and fade off then on and somtimes stay on while driving. after I park and turn car off they do go out with in five minutes. ie thought of relay ,door lock or door lacth swiches,where to start?
The blower just quit working and does not work turned down or at any speed but the digital reading for the temp shows level of fan speed.
I found out the popping noise I have been hearing is the engine cradles both sides front and back need replaced.Frame seems fine, 2 in front and 4 in back.The 2 the farthest back are completely gone.No bushing in them at all. Are the other 4 sufficient at this point? I hate to put a lot of money in it. The other 4 look pretty good.Any idea on what I should expect the cost to fix this problem to be?
A couple of days ago I noticed that my interior lights were on during a 20 min drive home and I just figured that i hadn't shut all of the doors properly. When I got home I checked all of the doors (this wasn't the problem). The lights did go off at some point after 15 min. the lights DO NOT go off if I am driving the car. I cannot find the location of the door switches as I figured that this was the best place to start.
no air ride pump running
where the cabin air filter located in the regency 1998. I searched the web without luck, help please. and where I can buy new one
The fuel gauge on my 97 Regency does not read properly. Sometimes it will read a full tank and other times it will be empty when I know it has a full tank. Is this a common problem and if so how would i go about fixing this? I've been told it could be a fuse or a loose wire. Any help would be great!
My car started out dying even while in motion. I was able to put it in neutral and start it right back up. Now, it surges very fast in drive and I almost can't stop it, actually having to drop it into neutral to slow it down. But when in neutral and park it revs so high it sounds like it might explode. Could something be wrong with the throttle body? Or would this be an air intake control issue?
After my car is warm and i turn it off and start it again it doesnt wanna start, kind of sputter starts like it might die. Also when i drive it, it sounds like a farting noise coming out by the intake manifold. What should i do?
i have the code p071 whay does this mean
