When the ABS light comes on I have a power surge to lights - making it impossible to drive car at night, a very powerful power surge. Does not happen all the time but is happening more and more help!

Please base this estimate on a rear engine cradle from a previously owned car not a new cradle. Thank you

Engine is ruined and stopped running while it was on the road

engined ruined with zero oil in it

What is wrong with the car and is it reparable and how much will it cost?

This is a "how" question. I have read the repair reviews & most common problems encountered, so how I can I figure out if it makes sense to buy an extended warranty on my 2015 car which seems like it generally has low repair records? I change my oil timely.

My car broke down down on me and would not turn on after it shut down instantly. I checked out my battery alternator and starter also timing belt. I still don't know what is wrong with my car.

Rebuilt engine? 3 yr warranty? What should I expect the cost to be? For its age 10 yrs pretty low miles@ 130,000

2.5L SOHC, got P1112 & P1112 p/d, now I cleaned out pressure sensor now no mil on, only P1112 p/d, but still Boggs and I'm told 1112 is a low circuit value, what should I test with meter?

I have a 2004 Subaru Outback LL Bean H6 3.0 & the AC is not blowing out cold air. When AC is turned on there is a slight hum under the hood, but no cold air. There is oil residue on the line connection stretching from the front of the engine to the back. What do I do - I have someone that may be able to work on the vehicle for me, but otherwise would greatly appreciate the verbiage for this fix so I can communicate it to the mechanic. Thank u.

2014 can be jumped. This has happened on several occasions. Any ideas on remedies ?

Today I experienced a problem when I start my car, put it in reverse, and back out of a parking place. It would stall, then cut off. This happened a few times today. Also at stop lights, it seems to stutter a bit as I finish stopping, but has not yet cut out when I stop at a light or sign while driving. What would be the possible reasons for this?

When the windshield wipers are on intermitten they run as if they are just on the ON position. What do I do?

pull the fuse

no fuses are blown, the air system is still connected, when you put the car under load it bogs like it's getting to little fuel, or to much air, the RPMS drop as soon as you throttle whether in neutral or in gear, it will loose RPMs so much it it will drop below idle and the car will stall and shut down.

gas smell is pretty strong. not exhaust fumes. im asuming when in motion the smell is being left behind cause of air and speed

Dealership here quoted $500 to repair both front half axles. Trying to figure out if that is toward the high end or the low end . Page on repair pal said $280-$534, but I wasn't sure whether that price was for one half axle or both.
Thank you

The Subaru dealer mechanic said both headgaskets leaking, inner axle boot cracked, and timing belt must be replaced, cost of $2000. If I fix these, how much longer before I face other major problems/major costs? Should I keep repairing, or bail out now?

Only happens when I drive. My husband doesn't think its an issue.
