My car started off not shifting gears. It's an automatic. Nothing on the dash worked at all. Got that working and now my car will not stay running after it's crunk.

When the car sits for a couple of days and you start the car and you shift the transmission to drive or reverse the motor needs to run a bit before the transmission will engage. If we drive the car on a regular basis the transmission will engage right away every time.

have checked fuses all good

i turned it off and it wont start again i replaced the fuel pump ,its got fire and fuel and compression but dont start

It misses especially after driving awhile. Its rpms below 1000 while stopped and it gets worse in gear. In neautral it levels rpm 800-1000? Where should I start? also affecting mpg

A leak in the brake hydraulic system

catylitic conv.glowed red ,,i checked it today and it was not damaged ,,also put new spark plugs,,,,could it be sensor or ign.coil i dont have the cash to take to shop

When am going up a hill and I accelerate, the gear takes a while to change and when it does, it jerks forward and at times it acts as if it will cease moving

I'm trying to replace the oil sending unit on my 98 Camry, which is on the front of the engine above the crank shaft position sensor. My 22mm deep socket fits the new one perfectly, but I can't get the old one out! I removed the alternator to have better access to it and was able to get the wiring harness off, but my 22, 23 and 15/16 deep well sockets won't go on the old one.

Two things about the old one:
1. Looks like it's either been stripped or that its actually round with 2 flat sides to grab (not like a std. 6-sided nut).
2. Its seems like its a good bit bigger (diameter) than the new one.

Does anyone know what size it is, or if it needs a special tool to remove it? I asked AutoZone if they had a tool for it, but they said there wasn't one. I've tried getting a set of channel lock plier on they to see if I could turn it, but had no luck. Any help would be great. Thanks
