The temperature gauge goes up chugs when it shifts hard usually when run after a little while shut it off turn it back on a few minutes later and it's fine for a little while again
My heat gauge shot up all at once and the engine hot light came on and my van shut down and wouldn't start. It never smoke and wasn't too hot. When I did get it started it would only drive in first gear. The mechanic is telling me I need my fans replaced but don't know why it would only drive in low gear. He is telling me its going to cost over $500 just for the fans. Could that be why it shot up so fast and why it would only drive in low gear and is that price for fans reasonable?
what more detail do u need?
If you can. Which number or letter would give you that information.
The pully for releasing the seat from it's posts is stuck and won't release the seat from it's station, How do I get this to release? Body shops won't mess with it, they are afraid of permanently breaking it and being held responsible to buy me a new chair if they broke it worse...
The back lights have slowly been getting worse over the past year, and now I have no reverse, tail or turn signal lights at all. I can't seem to find the wiring harness anywhere. Any suggestions??
Rpm mph dials not working
I've replaced the water pump it was leaking now the resivour is full and it is still overheating could it be the thermostat
Most of the time my wipers only work on high. Now my heater and air fan only operates on low and medium speeds. For several years the steering wheel radio controls malfunction when any button is pressed, ie; tuner or volume, causing the radio to scroll through stations for about a minute before stopping. I replaced both wiper and ac control panels with exact same results! WOW now what??&*^%_)(*
Also, the diagnosis/plug-in does not work.
