Our Toyota Echo will crank, the motor will shake, lifters will make noise, & it won't rev up.
We've replaced the fuel pump relay, spark plugs, starter, & put in a new battery.
Our friend says it's the motor, but we don't think so. He also said it was out of oil, but we know it wasnt cause we keep oil in it, but he added 2 quarts. It just needed to be changed.

Mechanic was working on changing my brake pads and called me later to say the brake fluid needed changing. This turned out to be kind of pricey. For the next time: does brake fluid usually need to be changed when changing brake pads?

My Toyota manual says to add "Toyota Long Life Coolant" or equivalent. So two questions: must I add water to the coolant or can I just pour the coolant without any water straight in? Also, my coolant at present looks green, but the "Toyota Long Life Coolant" is red. Can I mix the two colors?

I'm selling my little sweet car (purchased a new RAV4) and the garage wants to charge over $600 for this service.
I just had it in to my service tech and put over $1000 into it and he found neither of these problems!

Replaced both belts in 2009 with the mileage at 72,430. I'm now at 105,130 miles and the mechanic told me that the top belt (alternator belt?) needs changing. True?

When this happens , I quickly put it in park. A few days ago I had a tune up and everything on my car. The mechanic couldn't find anything wrong with the brakes. When they drove it it was okay. Then after I left them, I was stopping at a light and it kept rolling so I had to go over the line and over a railroad track to stop it quickly. It happened again on the way home

I love to read novels and digest, It make me crazy I want to read novels and digest during driving.. How can i Do this??? Please help me out...

I will be moving from a warm, non-snowy climate to a cold, snowy one. What do I need to know about maintaining my car (e.g., how long to warm it up during the cold weather before I drive, or what kind of car wash I should get and how often), and what kind of equipment will I need (e.g., snow tires?). Thanks much!

I currently live in a no-snow, year-round, warm city and will be moving to Spokane, WA. Could someone tell me what things I will need to know about maintaining my car in a cold, snowy city (e.g., how long should I warm up a cold car in the am before I drive off? Do I need to clean the car in ways other than just a car wash?) and the type of equipment I may need (e.g., will I need snow tires?). Thanks very much!

I tightened the drive belt because while driving the 5 speed manual transmission noises are heard that do not exist when the air conditioner is off. What is the most inexpensive repair attempt and what else could be causing the noise? water pump? compressor clutch? what else could it be and where should I start after tightening drive belt?

It will never start on the first attempt. I wait till I hear a click, then one or two start cranking gets it going.

I had my transmission fluid flushed and then began experiencing loss of response and delayed shift into overdrive (60mph before "Kick Down"). This is a big change for my car. After a drive with a transmission specialist he suggested that it was a catalytic converter. Replacing the cat helped a lot with performance in the lower gears but I continue to have an issue on the top end. Any thoughts?

doesn't even click when it doesnt start. other times, i starts right up.

My check engine lighht came on one evening after work (extremely cold, below 0 with the wind chill) and went back off the next afternoon. Could it have just been the fact that it was extremely cold. It was actually 28 below with the windchill.

I had my oil changed and was told that the car had a broken sway bar link. How would I know that this is true and how much would a replacement cost? And what's the average cost of a fuel injection cleaning. I live in in Clayton County, GA

When it starts it pops once then runs rough with a chugging sound.
Also electrical problem with battery drain when shut off.

My wife called me this morning saying that her car has very little power while in gear, she said she barely made it up a small incline in our apt complex. She also said it seems to be "bouncing" (that was the best way she could describe it). Any ideas?

Well my problem its that i like to run, and a notice that the car once reach 90 mph doesn't throw the last shift its a automatic transmission, vvti motor.
