I replaced head gasket. motor ran for awhile then shut off.normal. But I went to start back up it started. then 3rd time I went to start fuel pump wasnt making a sound.So I replaced it. but still doing same thing fuel pressure tester says 0. Wiring problem maybe?

A friend of mine drove his van from DC to Bakersfield California.
To take care of his 94 yr old mother.
He's starting to have problems with his passenger side window.
He said he checked the fuses and they where still good... Both windows roll up slowly and sometimes you gotta pull it cause they slide off track and you have push it back.
But now it just won't do nothing.. What else could be wrong and how can he fix it?

It just happens when I turn and then it kicks back in when I go straight.

no rear tail, stop, or turn signals lights.

it does not do it all the time but when it does it the van goes faster than what you set the cruise to

Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Transmission only has forward gears in all settings (PRND321). 23k old rebuild by a ATEC transmission in Elma ($1700). Passed a car one day and van revved up slammed back into gear and since will not go into anything but drive. Start van and it feels like it wants to move forward, put in R and feels like it wants to go forward more so, neutral the same etc through all gears but the most easy to get rolling is D. feels like starting in 3rd gear on all settings. once rolling in d get up to 45 and when converter goes to lock up it slams down into 2 gear. ATEC wants another $1200 to look at. BTW, no whining, burning fluid (looks new) or codes detected by ATEC, just starts and stays in top gear. Help!

I was driving and felt a bump then my upper two gears quit working. This was the first time anything like that happened. does anyone know what could have happened or how to fix this.

How do I get it unlocked and unjammed

It was working i made a turn now i dont have any turn signals i have a oldsmobile sillouette

I have a 2001oldsmobile silhouette and it started and ran fine the day before and I went to start it this morning and it started hard idled for just a second and then stopped running now all it will do is just crank over but will not fire up at all and it has plenty of fuel in it also do you have any idea what it maybe? This never has happened before and there are no codes that come up either.

the light bulbs are blown out

It doesnt do as bad when I'm stoped

I don't know how to turn of the "phone" that is displayed on my radio. Now my radio doesn't work

I have a new battery. I had a mechanic check it out, but could not find a problem. I need to pass an inspection and any lights on is going to fail.

I would like to repair my thermostat myself, but I would like to know where is it located, and is it a difficult job to complete?

my traction light keeps coming on and for some reason my brake lights are not working for some reason no and also my cruise control is working neither now

Out of the blue on Thursday, the turn signals stopped working and battery drained. We bought a new alternator and had the battery tested. Both things tested fine. The van drove fine for an hour until the battery drained again. So we had alternator tested. Again that was fine. What could be draining the battery? When battery is fully charged the van runs great!

i have checked the fuel lines , relay switch. only way it will start is if you open the breather and spray carb and choke cleaner in it. when you turn the key on it takes 30-45 sec for pump to turn on

you can start it go to point A and turn it off and come back and get in and go to start and it will not start and you can use starting fluid and get to start sometimes...

did smoke test smoke came from canister purge solenoid but its new

I just drove the van the day before yesterday started up fine and ran fine no indication of anything wrong. Had a snow storm and temperature drop go to start it today and the dash board flickers for a second everything comes on, but won't start!!!

The dash board flickers than lights up an everything powers up but all I hear is a "stishhhhhhh" sound when trying to start it and won't start!!!

Red Engine heat light comes on occasionally and slow loss of coolant-If it's lower manifold can I use cooling system sealant?

Injectors stop pulse, but spaks woks ok.
