I just had the transmission replaced and have had to take it back 5 times in 6 month period. The bearings dropped out and the mechanic repaired but now the speed odometer runs faster than the car is running. Why

loosing water from radiator & can't find any leaks, no oil in it or smoke out the exhaust, no water or milky in oil

The drop top opens, but it drops down fast on the driver side and when I close it I have to pull the driver side up manually to close it. I Where can I take it hear the motor running, but it's not doing the job. Where can I get it repaired?

My AC fan started making a huge racket today! The lower two settings aren't really noisy, but they aren't very effective either. The two highest settings sound like the engine is about to fall out of the car! But it is actually coming from inside the passenger compartment it sounds like, passenger side near the glovebox. I am getting cool air so I'm pretty sure it's not a compressor issue. I googled "heater blower fan makes noise 1997 Toyota Celica" and found this website with answers to the same issue on a 1997 Toyota 4Runner that sounded exactly like what I'm experiencing. I read that rodents sometimes get in the blower fans and they have to be cleaned out. My Celica has sat in place for about 3 or 4 months after the alternator went out. I just got a new alternator out on and it was running great.. Now this sound..and I need COOL AIR!! My wife suggested something might have nested in the blower. I just need to know how to open it and get it cleaned out. Hoping that's what it is.

Thanks for any and all help!!
