So I bought a 2001 Pontiac sunfire as a beater car. The parking break doesn't work and usually this isn't a problem but because it is a manual I kind of need it. When I pull the lever the light comes on and it locks into place but it does not apply the parking break.

in the middle of the nite the horn just started blowing for no reason..car was locked and not broken into.. we pressd horn to stop the blowin and now it doesn't work at all.. I had brought it in and was told there was a short and that the whole horn pad assembly needs to be changed.. how does one change this without paying an arm and leg at a mechanical repair shop... my dad is familiar with car mechanics but is a lil older and hasn't wkd on Pontiacs...please help ... I found a used horn assembly to save money as I am a single mother ... he just wants to know the easiest way and to make sure he doesn't have to take apart dashboard and or go through hassles of motor..thanks in advance

idles rough taken to a garage they think it needs a new computer

I'm putting a motor out of a 99 s-10 into a 2000 Pontiac sunfire and had to change the plates to be able to put My coil packs on the head instead of on the side of the block. When doing so, I need to replace the casket and don't know what it is called. Thank you

The whole car rumbles while I'm holding the brakes and it's in Drive second or first what would be causing this

Ok so, I replaced all of the above. Before, the heat would get ice cold, the car would overheat, and if I loosened the cap, blackish water would shoot out of the overflow tube. Now, the heat always works, the car overheats a little, not as bad as before. I also get a very weird gurgling noise as well. It makes the noise when the car is running, and for about 15 seconds after I shut it off. If I turn my heat on, the noise goes silent, but then comes back, but not as loud. For an example of the noise I posted a video on YouTube. Please reply, any help is appreciated! I tried to post the link, but it will not allow me.

i had my father look at my ignition because he knows alot about cars but couldnt figure out what was wrong with it either. i also have to detach my battery because it keeps dying. ever since my ignition stopped turning my battery dies, wipers dont work,heater dont work and my sun roof wont open

How do I fix it?

Please send instructions I don't understand why one wasn't in there.

my shifter indicates that it should be a 4 speed automatic transmission but their is a 3 speed automatic in the car is their a way to tell what the car is suppose to have. I think the transmission has been changed but not sure

My car isn't starting due to not having compression, I replaced the starter and battery it sounds like it wants to start but isn't going all the way through.

I replaced the motor but the new motor runs only on high too.

How MUCH for the part? and what part do I need ? Its the medal piece to hold up exhaust pipe

My check engine light keeps coming on right when I start the car and its always in the morning. I took my car to my mechanic and they look at my car and replaced the canister purge valve twice now. I know parts that every mechanic uses to replace broken ones can be defective with out them knowing it. But two in a row. Is it something else or just bad luck on the parts?

This is first time drove fine getting to my house but now cant leave can it be wrong parts

It sat up for about 3 years and I've flushed the radiator twice, put 2 different thermostats, new coolant, water pump and temperature cooling sensor on it. It doesn't smell hot and runs fine but every now and then my oil light comes on, but it's full, just been replaced. Could it be my head gasket? My oil is not milky and it doesn't blow white smoke from my exhaust pipe. What else can I do?
