Question Answered: I have heat on the passenger side but not the drivers side. Can you help me out?

There is a blend door motor on the pass side of the vehicle which varies the hot and cold air. this motor has quit working, most likely the plastic gears inside the blend motor. it will have to be replaced with a new unit. these are available through most parts houses.
Question Answered: red battery light with a message check with shop
September 26, 2013, 10:59 AM
these cars have two batteries. the main vehicle battery, and a auxiliary battery located on the right side of the vehicle under the hood. I believe the washer tank will have to be removed to gain access to it. It will cause the vehicle to go into what is called energy saver mode (ac will stop working) and the red battery light will come on

Question Answered: my1994 e320 willnot shift into any gear from the transmission. help

have you checked the fluid? is it leaking anywhere. when is the last time the trans was serviced. was it slipping the last time you drove it? The questions will go on and on. Start with the basics. also check to see if the reverse lights come on when shifted into reverse, Make sure to set the brake and do not start the car to check just turn the key on. if they light up that would mean the linkage from the shifter is going to the transmission shift lever, if not then check to see if the linkage bar has come unhooked from the shifter to the transmission. the bushings and clips wear out and cause problems like this
Question Answered: my car starts and runs for about 30 to 40 minutes it get hot and shut off
September 26, 2013, 10:41 AM
most likely the crank shaft sensor. It gets hot and resistance goes up and it stops sending its signal to the engine control module. you should have a code set for this but not always
Question Answered: Why does theVacuum assist work on one but not all the doors..trunk works
September 26, 2013, 10:34 AM
try this. in the trunk where the fuses are find the fuse for the pse system. this is what controls the vacuum pump. when the fuse is removed it will reset the vacuum pump module. try the doors again. usually what happens is the rubber diaphragm begins to leak. this causes the pump to run longer and get hot. it will shut down and need to be reset. this is not a fix but away to check the system
Question Answered: How do I clean the sunroof drains.
September 26, 2013, 10:25 AM
is it leaking inside the vehicle. with the sunroof closed there is what is called a drip bar located at the rear of the sunroof. what this does is catch the water that gets by the sunroof seal. it will direct it to the sides of the roof and out the back drains. you can also sometimes gain access to the drains on the lower rocker panel in front of each rear wheel. try putting the car on the drive way sloped to the rear. take a small bottle of water and pour it along both sides of the sunroof. you should see the water draining out in front of the rear wheel on that side. if not then it may in fact be plugged. a good shop should be able to gain access to the drain point and using compressed air blow the drains out. hope this helps
Question Answered: Why would the right headlight quit working and the bulb is good?
September 26, 2013, 10:16 AM
this should be covered under the factory warranty. the best thing would be to take it in.
Question Answered: How accurate are your cost to repair or maintencance cost?
September 26, 2013, 10:14 AM
things have changed quite a bit on service quotes. older cars 90's and some up to 2000 had a 60,000 replacement of timing belts and quite a lot of other stuff. the newer cars usually got 90 to 120 thousand miles on each timing belt service, also spark plugs will go 90 to 100,000 miles between changes. the best thing to do is look in your owners manual, see what is required for service for 60,000 to maintain the warranty. at that point you can get online with all data to check times and price parts at the local parts houses.
Question Answered: Why did reverse stop working instantly. Had no problems before. Just quit workin
September 26, 2013, 10:08 AM
sounds like the front drum behind the pump either broke the snap ring or the cover cracked. either way the trans will have to be removed and inspected.
