My car is having intermittent transmission issues, and I think I am going to need to replace it in the near future. I wanted to see what people thought about the cost to replace/or what the other options may be. Thanks.

Could this be a universal joint issue and if so how much for average repair in Chicago, IL

6 months ago the blower motor control module went out, I replaced it. 1 month ago it went out again, this time I installed capacitor per GM instructions and replaced the blower motor just to be safe. Worked fine for 1 month and now as before no blower at all on all settings.


i dont even know where to start to look at. could someone help me please. i had a mechanic tell me that, it was bad but i do not know where it is. thanks for your time.

P420 catalyst efficiency low bank # 1

I Own a 2000 Grand Prix GTP and the transmission began acting strange 2 days ago. It will not engage on Drive or 3rd gears but it does in 2nd, 1st and Reverse. It didn't give any signs of problems before this. I'm thinking that it could be the selenoid but don't realy know. Can anyone offer some assistance?

all the time

The heater only seems to work if I'm driving down the interstate. Idling, or driving through town, the air blows, just never gets warm. We've replaced the thermostat and that didn't help. So now we're at a loss. HELP!

Why do my windsheild wipers rest in the up position when turned off

Driving on freeway, went to pass a car, my car went down a gear to 3rd passed the car & my car never went back to 4th gear or overdrive. All other gears work good, fluid level good. Still able to drive, just runs at higher rpm, been like this for 2 days now. Service eng soon light came on about 5 miles after losing overdrive, connected ETHOS scanner, got P1870 code (transmission component slipping), cleared code, light went & stayed out, still have problem. Have 215000 miles on car, tranny rebuilt at 108000 miles. Suspect internal problem?

how do i fix my air and heat control i cant change it from it from always stays on vent

when you start the engine it idles fine for 2 to 3 seconds then shuts off. if you rev the engine up and down at 3 to 4 thousand rpm you can keep it running but if you hold a steady throttle or let it idlr it dies. It dosent miss or smoke and i havent found any obvious vacum leaks and i have changed the maf sensor and it dident change anything.It is a supercharged 3800

i noticed about a week ago that my car did not feel as warm as it use to. there was not enough heat coming out of the vent to keep me warm. but enough heat was coming out to melt the snow off the windshield. i am not sure whats going on with the heat in my car.

About how much fuel is left in the tank when the Low Fuel Light comes on?? Thank you

radio works fine ,but can't see what station I'm on.

how much to replace the sway bar and end links

My 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix is leaking power steering fluid, and I need to know how much it would cost to have the unit replaced if I have to go that route?

when you give car gas or driving and go faster ...the egr valve is getting exhaust out of it...which is making a loud noise??? cat. converter be cloged??

I am working on a 2001 Grand prix 3.8 ltr non super charged the customer's complaint is stall condition then will not restart for 1/2hr to 2 hours.
I picked up the car and drove it back to my shop it stalled as i pulled in. once i got to my tools and went to the car the car started and has not stalled for me in 3 days. I cannot rule out the crank sensor, the cam or the ignition module at this time. tries wiggle test, verified all grounds etc. Fuel pressure remains during stall condition, any ideas on this. thanks

car has lights ,radio,window functions,but will not crank,all I hear is a buzzing sound.It has three coils together not sure if they are all for the ignition.

good year quoted me a $600 dollar price on the coolant system. is that a good price or where should look to find a better price?

when I'm driving up hill my cars RPM level off at leverl 3 and it jerks forward and backwords as it struggles to go uphill. It also seems like it will shut off when the RPM goes down to level 1 but again it just jerks front and back.

heater control knob fell off

need to replace the black thing that the front bulbs connect to. don't know what's it called to order.

need a new fuel pump installel

Car starts and idles just fine but when gas is pressed it dies. tried the computer, catililitic converter, fuel regulator.

Odometer works sometimes but seems to not record all the time.

module has rusted and broken loose from the rack and pinon. Can it be replaced without replacing the whole rack and pinon.

My heater was working on levels 1-4 not 5 and then they all quit on me. The resistor works in the opposite direction. What could cause the problem? The blower motor itself?
