This occurs every time a turn is made. The tighter the turn, the more strain appears to be placed on the engine.

while driving my car the elect. system completely shut off no door locks,lights or hazard lights ignition switch wouldn't unlock to remove the key and trans. selector wouldn't shit into neutral to push out of traffic then 5-10 mins. later the key turned elect.returned and the car started and worked fine . the pos. bat. terminal was completely covered in corrosion so I replaced the term. also during the day the outside temp. was over 100 degrees.
what would cause this all to happen

going down the road on a 100 plus degree evening my car shut off on its own nothing elect. would work and the ignition would only let me turn the key to ON ,START ,and LOCK but would not release the key to pull it out of the ign.
after about 5 or 10 min I heard a light clicking noise behind the radio turned the key to remove it and it came out after that i started the car . could the 100 + degree heat of the day or a completely corrosion covered pos. term. (whitch I had to replace ) have caused the temp. power failure or is it the IGN. switch?

altenator shuts down car runs off battry, no altenator light comes on. if the car sits over night altenator works fine until it does it what relay can do this? help perplexed.

My radio stopped working but the fuses in the fuse panel are good

The fuel pump is not working on my 1997 Subaru Wagon with a 2.5L engine. It just up and quit on me. I put in a new fuel pump and assembly, put in new relays and checked the fuses and wireing. The fuel pump is good. I can run a wire from the positive connection on the fuel pump and hook it up to the fuse box with a toggle switch to turn it on and off and the care will run just fine. Any suggestions?

Just bought a 1997 Legacy wagon that overheats. The radiator hose, the lower return does not get hot. Is this a bad water pump(where is it located anyways?) or just a plugged radiator? Best way to determine which it is?
