My drivers side window just all of a sudden stopped working one day and every time I tried to use it, there would be this loud grinding sound and it wouldn't move at all. The passenger side moves very slowly and often times gets stuck. I don't know if I need new motors on both or what.

Thank you

Car sat for 7 years. already replaced coil,module,pickup,fuel pump and filter,cap and button, checked all fuses and fusable links,tps. shows good on the vantage with no flat spots or dropouts. I'm sure I'm missing something simple. ooh it will run if u pour gas on the filter until its gone.

put new battery and new starter but not even turning over.

Regarding my 97 Trans Am WS6, with the LT1 engine, the low coolant light on my dash seems to come on intermittently. I have checked, cleaned, and verified a good ground, checked and verified good connections, and I check the coolant level every time the car cools down. I add about a 1/4 to 1/2 quart of coolant every time to top off the radiator, and have bled the air with the bleed screws several times. The light stays off until the engine reaches normal operating temperature, the thermostat opens, and the light comes on. I have checked for leaks and found none visibly, no coolant in the passenger compartment, no white smoke, and the engine runs well. Where is the ccolant going? The oil does not appear contaminated, nor does the coolant. Does this sound like a faulty head gasket, or possibly a cracked block? Thank you.

can anyone show me picture/video where crankshaft position sensor location on PontiacFirebird 3.1L engine

I have a 1991 manual transmission Pontiac Firebird with 3.1L V6 MPI engine. My dad haven't use it in year so I decided to use it, I can get it to turn over but can't get it to start. I took out the old gas and put in new gas, I check the spark plugs, replace the battery then I try starting it but pink smoke started coming out from the computer and one of fuel injectors started smoking to so i replace both of them and it still won't start please help

After i installed an aftermarket radio, my speedometer gauges stopped working. The next day my front parking lights stopped working. i checked all the fuses/relays and all seems right.

When sitting at a stop sign or red light and the car is in gear, it has a bad vibration. You can shift into nuetral and it stops.....

The shop manuals do not give any help on the replacement of the fuel filter. I recently obtained this car and would like to replace the fuel filter, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks for your help.

It says FC Relay 1,2,and 3 Control Circuit. Does this mean I need to find 3 control circuit relays and replace them? The other system checks seem to be in the normal range, (well other than the tach on the dash appears to be reading about 300rpm high). The MIL seems to come on now and then, and stay on, until I park the car for a few days. Thanks for your help.

The car blew the radiator a few weeks ago, the mechanic replaced the radiator, water pump and thermostat. I had the car back for one day, had to take it back vibrates and engine light came on. They replaced all spark plugs and wires. I had the car back for one day, service engine light came on and vibrates at stops. Took the car back, why can't they figure out what the problem is? They do the diagnostic thing, come up with numbers but they can't come up with a solution.

we had it put on machine and code p1404 showed up please help us with what code is thanks

Has a new battery and new alternator and the catalyst and oxygen sensor heater monitors aren't ready

its a 5 spd and i changed the plugs checked the cat. its good . but it still bogs down real bad

After driving for a while it eventually starts to idle normal

While I driving the windows and radio quit working can't put the top up and now the power seat and the alarm system is going wacko. the seat will not go forward or back but the rest of the position work and you open the car door or the trunk and the stupid horn starts going off. This car has had more problems than Christine. No wonder they quit making the trans ams ..

after sitting a while the car starts up and i can drive until it happends again

its a little loose but it just wont come out all the way

could something be blocking the vents? are there fuses that should be checked? is there a motor that controls vents? no air comes out dash vents on any setting.

I have a WS6 with the LT1 engine, that has about 123,000 miles on it. After it warms up the oil pressure usually reads about 20#s. Is this normal? It seems low to me. Also, when idling, but not moving, the coolant temperature will rise to about 220 degrees before the electric fans start. Is this normal?

And shut right off. Does anybody know what it could be

I just changed rack and pinion assembly and the first couple days everything was perfect.. And just recently I've got a lot of play in steering wheel. Was told to tighten gearbox but not sure where it's located.

there are no visible leaks.

It does it when cruising at any speed

Anyone know of a good HONEST shop here in Vegas?

When i turn my lights on, the lights keep going up and down constantly and after 15 seconds or so, then one will stay down and other one will be up or then will be half way, you never know, so when i want to put them down or up i have to unhook it and do it manually then i turn the lights on, so i was wondering how to time it

its worst the 1st start of day, hard to start, cuts out/dies when I push on the gas til its been ran a while and the fuel fuse blows when I get down to about a quarter of a tank

i need to know if my distributor is cracked would it make my car misfire and blow black smoke and loose of power
