--Whenever the weather is below 35/40 degrees F, the speedometer stops working and there is a rattling sound.
--Mechanic said only fix was to find a "low mileage" same make/model/ year "instrument cluster" to replace what is in the car now. Difficult to find.
--Any alternative fixes? What is it about the cold that causes the speedometer not to work? Car has 199K miles, has manual transmission, and is well maintained.
fuse box on positive battery cable what is it for and do i need it to have my car started
My sisters brake pedal goes to the floor every now and then. From what I read it most likely seems that it has to be the master cylinder, please correct me if I'm wrong. There's no brake fluid leak and no air in the lines. If the Brake booster was bad it would make it hard to press the brakes, correct? Also, on this year car can you tell me what the brake bleeding order is(Ex. RR,LR,FL,FR)? Thanks in advance.
Can anyone provide me with the order that the brakes need to be bled? I'm changing the Master Cylinder this weekend on my sisters car and I want to make sure I'm bleeding them in the correct order. Also just to get another opionion on what's wrong. She said the pedal goes to the floor every now and then which I find odd that its only sometimes. She doesn't have a leak, no air in line so I would assume thats its a faulty master cylinder. If it was the brake booster it would only make it really hard to press the brakes correct? Thanks in advance for the help.
I know the struts are blown. I do not know if the springs are sagging. I have searched the internet for over an hour to no avail. Ride height is measured from the ground to the wheel well. Please advise.
My car is stuck in 3rd gear
The car turns over fine but just won't restart right away.It is getting spark so it is a fuel problem.The catalytic convertor clogged?It did catch on fire when the car was running rough.With a tune up it is running better.
