Now gas pedal is starting to stick

oil filter housing spins and not known if safe removal and replacement. currently same oil filter on with silcon seal in attempt to maintain seal - loosing engine pressure on hills and during acceleration. Ive had computer issues with this vehicle and light has been on for 2 yrs - tho drives well (minus the lack of acceleration on hills)

what is cause and cost to remedy Oil Leak at engine block and oil filter

Had a plug in computer check and it reads data but no codes. Think it is a short in wires or loose conection to body control computer, HELP PLEASE.

Hooked to test computer and get computer data but no codes show.
Car runs great preforms well just the gauge cluster problem. What is the solution. We think a short or plug not in all the way or Body control computer???

The engine is not hot according to the temperature guage. Why does it keep running 24/7 if I let it.

I had someone plow into my front end while it was parked. It was fixed and seemed to be running fine. All of a sudden went to start the car one day and it just would not connect. left it over night, next morning started fine. and then the check engine light was on. over the next few days the car would start sometimes and not other times. the ck engine light would come on and go off. I took it to O'Reily auto part to check why the ck engine light is on and he said the computer said it was the transmission speed sensor. Does that sound right and how costly is that to fix?

if its not the fuel line, then where else would fuel be leaking from top of tank, when the car is running that is the only time fuel leaks out

105K miles. recent purchase. since 1st month, mpg drop 3-5. always starts, sometimes no acceleration for awhile ( 5 mins), then OK. Check engine light on intermittently. Smells like gas when stopped and turned off. Any ideas welcome.

Changed radiator installed everything back how it was. Started the car everything ran good but the fans didnt kick on. I checked fuses and plugs. what else can i do.

how do I c test the coils?

I know this is an expensive repair, right now I don't have the funds. I was quoted $2000-$2500. In your opinion is it worth having the repair? It has 72,000 mi., good condition. I'm trying to avoid having a car payment. Any advice is welcomed.

the gas cap was checked did not help.
just happened today for the first time. 3 hrs from home

the Check Engine Soon came on.

To repleace the power steering pump do i have to remove the timing belt? if yes how can assure the timing belt won't move,

I could tell (automatic) transmission struggled to go from first to second. Took it to Midas for diagnostic - when they reopen on Thursday 12/26.

Car has not been driven lately, forgot to add antifreeze, henceforth a busted block, freeze plugs etc, replaced freeze plugs, all is fine but how do I repair the block, is there an easy answer??

Reduced Power light is on, causing car start and stop.

How much would it cost to drill out Ignition Cylinder and put in new one? And have key made?

It blows when I turn the wheel then stops and when over 50mph.

Had issues fuel gage and power locks before this problem.

I can't figure how to tke cover off.

the check oil light doesnt tell me when i am low on oil, it can have anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 quarts in it and no warning lights up . the car smokes when i start it like a blueish and smells like burnt oil why does it do this

Have to replace the starter and ignition switch. I'm at the switch now, but I can't seem to find the starter.

Had front Struts changed cost me around 550.00.

This happens whenever I have the A/C ON. I removed the drain tube and that is clear. I removed the cover at the foot well and when I drive I can see water coming out the plastic cover that has the panel velco located
Any ideas or should I see an A/C specialist
