Driver's window will go down. Sometimes it will go all the way up, sometimes and couple of inches and stop. Sometimes an inch at a time. I traced an accompanying noise to the Express Module. Module allows for one-touch rolling down. I checked the switch and am getting voltage throught the switch. I've also replaced the circuit breaker. Is there anything else to check?

How much would you expect it to cost to replace an ignition lock and cylinder?

My Heater is not blowing out hot only cold no matter what selection is made on the controls mix,a/c,def,etc. I've checked the radiator fluid it's full, checked hoses they are hot, there's no radiator fluid smell nor is there any kind of fluid in the passenger compartment floor board. The temp gauge when car is not started, sits at 0 and when the car gets to running temp goes to about 180 to 200 like it should. Not sure why it's not blowing out hot. We've had some pretty cold temps here in Montana and wind chills could it be that it's just so dang cold that it can't get my heater working correctly?

The oil leak was coming from underneath the oil pan and under the passenger side of the engine. I bought dye to see where it was and emptied out my oil and when I went to jug the used oil notices water/coolant in it cause it was seperating. The engine is a new crate engine from autozone and is only under 3 years and some months old. Any idea what this is from. Please help me thank you. The engine is clean and all I just don't know if I should put new oil in it and the dye and see something I don't want to chance ruining the engine.
