In the summer I put in the AWD fuse (under the hood) to switch to 2wd. Well I've had some real bad work done on this vehicle (they told me they pulled the engine to replace the radiator), now when I put the fuse in the vehicle wont shift out of 1st gear (automatic). I cannot find any mechanic that has ever heard of this. The dealer wants 2500$ up front to do a diagnostic.
Can you shed any light on this?
This occurs every time a turn is made. The tighter the turn, the more strain appears to be placed on the engine.
frm the servo, there are 2 brake lines going to the front brakes, and 3 going to the back. I want to block off the rear brakes and only use the front brakes to get it to a shop. where can I block off the rear brakes and what do the 3 lines go to? which is which>?

I have a 2001 legacy the shifter is stuck could it be the linkage
I have had the car for 5 months and had the valve gaskets replaced and the car tuned up. Even before the repairs, i have heard a small rattle on the right side of the engine, sounds like close to the glove compartment. I dont hear it when im outside of the vehicle, only hear it when im inside.
The sound is not always there: it goes away when the car has been completely warmed up and driven for 30+ minutes.
When i do here it is driving around town and the rattle gets more rapid and faster as you speed up, and if i take my foot off accelerator the rattle slows down. It sounds as if there are small pebbles being rattled in a small area in the engine.
When engine is at idle its costant and steady rattle...when in Park it goes away.
Any idea what this could be?
I have been reading a lot about heat sheild rattling...but not sure if its that.
