Questions Answered by Total Automotive
How Do I Replace A Bulb In The Drivers Door Seat Heater Button? on 2000 Cadillac DeVille
You can not replace the bulb, you need to replace the whole switch assembly.
What Is Causing White Smoke To Come Out Of My Exhaust Pipe on 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
I agree with integrity first automotive. However, this problem could also occur if the intake manifold gasket has failed, even if it is new. Finding out what the problem is should be inexpensive, and then you can decide which way to proceed with fixing it. A WORD OF CAUTION: if there is white smoke coming from the tailpipe, do not drive the vehicle, as more damage could be done, and the cost of repair will be much higher.
Oil Gage On My Ford Ranger
Is Below The Peg. on 2004 Ford Ranger
The gauge may be able to be repaired. Either you or someone qualified may be able to disassemble the instrument cluster and repair the gauge.
What Do I Do? on 2004 Mercury Monterey
The best thing that you can do, no matter what type of vehicle you decide to buy, is to get a pre-purchase inspection. Find a trusted repair shop that will check out the car and tell you all that is wrong with it BEFORE you buy it. It is good to do internet research, but far more often, high repair bills come from buying a vehicle that has not been taken care of, rather than buying the wrong model. Remember, that most expensive repairs are caused by lack of proper maintenance, and not poor design. And the people that will bad mouth that model on the internet are the people that did not maintain their own vehicle properly. So, do your homework, find a vehicle that suits your needs, but most of all, get a pre purchase inspection.
Door Locks, Power Seat, Gas Door Reliese In Op On My 2002 Grand Marquis on 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis
You can start by checking all of the fuses to see if one is blown. If you dont find one, there could be a problem with the wiring under the carpet, or a problem with the fuse block. If that is the case, it is probably time to get some help in the form of a wiring diagram, or someone with the skill to troubleshoot the electrical issues. Let us know if we can help in any way.
What Would Cause My Car To Run Very Loud With No Apparent Warning? on 2003 Pontiac Vibe
Could be a problem with the exhaust or muffler. If you cant look at it yourself, give us a call and we will be happy to help you know whether it is something dangerous or not.
What Do I Do To Get My Key Out Of My Ignition? It Is Stuck And No Power. on 2007 Chevrolet Impala
If the battery is fully charged and you are still not able to get the key out, then there may be an issue with the shift interlock mechanism or wiring. You will need to locate a wiring schematic, troubleshooting info, and do some testing to isolate the failed wiring or component. If you are not comfortable with the troubleshooting, it is time to find someone who is, so that parts are not replaced on a guess, because that gets real expensive real quickly.
