transmission how much to replace new orused

When turning ignition everything comes on but won't start. Makes a sound like humming. This is the second time it has happened. Last time we tightened the terminals and it started but they are tight as can be and still nothing.

I am trying to setup my car for a question and do not know which type my engine is. what does SOHC and DOHC stand for?

no fuel at fuel rail will start on starter fluid and no fuel at rail. changed fuel pump relay and no trigger to pump.

Recently car came to a sudden stop while driving around 25 miles per hour.Would not move engine still running.Turned engine off and tried to restart but would only make a popping sound.Found out water pump froze and damaged timeing belt though it didnt completely break it was missing a few teeth and had a slit in it.Replace belt and pump now car starts ok but pops while it is running.Why is that?

my neon will die any time, usually after its already running, only once did it fail to start back up. it usually starts up, could be a couple minutes or half an hour. of course it wont do it when you want it to so cant find the problem, have check wires, fuses,timing belt,( only code that shows up says its one touth off, its not)

2 days ago while driving on the interstate at 70mph WITH cruise control ON and alot of rain when the car suddenly decelerated as if I had turned the cruise control off. We were near an Oasis so we pulled off and I looked under the hood for obvious things like fan belts, coolant hoses, oil loss,etc. The only thing I seen was alot of water on top of the battery and an adjacent electrical box I assumed to be the "electronic brain" of the vehicle.

We finished our trip to the tune of approximately 120 miles and had no further problems with the car excepting the "Check engine soon" idiot light was on. we used the car for local errands Monday with no problems. Yesterday was Tuesday and the car sat outside without starting or running. This morning the car will turn over but will not fire. Any suggestions????

what would make my car quit while driving or when i hit a bump or pothole?

Why do my windshield wipers just stop working? I was told it is a relay switch but I can't find one. I checked under the hood but there isn't one there.

Hello my name is Angie and I have a Plymouth Neon that for some reason wouldn't start one day. It acts like it wants to start but doesn't. i also found oil in the spark plugs. I was wondering if you knew what could be wrong and how pricey will it be? thanks so much

Gauges go up and down, battery indicator light comes on, headlights lose some power (they don't shut off), they actually dim down and then after 10-20 minutes of driving everything works fine electrical wise but the battery indicator light does remain on. Is it the alternator? Or some faulty fuse? Could it be that there is corrosion on one of the battery lines?

How much should it cost?
