How often should i have to replace a water pump

what does it cost for a transmission slipping problem or slipping hard in first gear ?

the car has 4 wheel disc brakes, no anti lock. did the front brakes no problem but the rear pads are held in by two pins and u just slide them out. how are those pins supposed to be removed? do you cut them? on one end there is a hole where you can tap on the pin, do you bang on them front that end until they slide out?

I have a 2001 Saturn L300 that stalls and is hard to start after reaching normal operating temperature. Any suggestions for possible causes would be appreciated. Thanks.

How do you put the wire on the brake pads to hold them in place? Usually there are clips, not sure how to use the wire.

i can't start the car, the car is in park, but the dash board says it's in reverse.

rear end - seems both sides - clunks on bumpy surface - at any speed- no "whupping, growling, or whirring" sounds. strut assemblies replaced all around. unrelated to turning the steering wheel
additionally - may be part of same problem or another issue - EXTREME instability, even at very low speed, on wet or icy pavement - fishtails, does 360s, etc
thank you for your kind input

I can't find on the website how to type in a service that is not automatically listed. I am looking for an estimate on the timing belt replacement plus all 3 pullies.

How do i change a transmission output/speed sensor in a 2003 Saturn L-300?

I have had a L300 for a few years without problems. i recently got 4 new tires and an oil change. After this, if my car was off for about an hour or so, it would crank but not start. I would have to try several times before it would finally crank. I had the spark plugs changed and the fuel system cleaned along with a diagnostic. Everything seemed fine to them, but the not starting has gotten worse and no one I talk to knows what the problem is. Does anyone know how to fix this? What would cause my car to crank but not fully start occasionally?
