My right front window will not roll down from driver side switch and passenger door switch and I also can't find the fuse or relay for the power windows.
Also my air conditioner cycles every ten seconds. I thought it might need charged but it is charged. Any information would great thanks.

Power steering all of a sudden went, now its very hard to turn wheel. At the same time, indicator lights for parking brake, abs, and battery came on. Now the car is making a clicking noise when trying to start. Battery? Electrical?? Help!

smells rubbery burn smell.......
...on straight ground there is a raving high when i step on accelerator

I have oil floating on top of the coolant in the radiator. Car runs pegged in the red, now is leaking water/coolant. Is this a sign of a blown head gasket? The car has complete new complete new cooling system (water pump, hoses, radiator, timing belt, etc.even had both heads replaced which worked for a couple months) And with almost 200,000 miles is it worth replacing? I can't do the job myself yet researching the prices on the internet looks like it could be close to $2K, is there any reasonably priced and honest shops around Phoenix?

repair shop worked on rock and pinion after that the air bag light does not go of and the horn is dead.

Tension pulley and tension bracket needs replacement and was told motor bearing might have to be replaced as well, which would be so expensive I should not get fixed. Said very labor intensive. my question is, How much to fix the bearing if this is the cause?

I have replaced the radiator,hoses,cap,thermostat,pressure tested the system and it was within spec.,leak-down test the cylinders,compression tested,tested block for hydrocarbons and all was fine so what else can it be?

have already checked for fuel firing and timing

what does it mean

the check eng. light keeps comin on

It doesn't happen when I start driving. It takes a while before it happens.

Front brakes grab (sometimes) when backing out of a parking place. Moving forward usually, but not always, releases the grab.
Once going slowly, probably in 1st gear, turning 90 degrees to the right, the grab was so tight the clutch was being damaged.
