Question Answered: Should fuse have blown first to prevent an electrical fire?
May 23, 2014, 05:25 AM
Good question....probaly not if they find evidence of water inside car.....lots of things can be damaged by water that causes corrosion in electrical conections. Best take it to dealer and see what they say.
Question Answered: oil filter not snug
May 23, 2014, 05:19 AM
Did the gasket from the old oil filter stay stuck to engine? Next inspect the theads where the filter screws on for damage.
Question Answered: About how much is it to fix a fast oil leak?
May 23, 2014, 05:16 AM
Really depends on where it is leaking from.....oil pan plug gasket would be a cheap fix, but a rear main crankshaft seal would be several hundred bucks. Best to take it to good repair shop that has had lots of exsperience in engine to repair to inspect for the source of the leak and quoat you a accurate price.

Question Answered: High mileage and EGR servicing
April 29, 2014, 10:13 AM
My motto if its not broke don't try to fix it. Only certain vehicles have egr port issues and its usally a design flaw. If you are not having a symptom of spark knock or other poblems its probaly better left alone in my opinion.

Contact the manufacture of the kit for their sugestions.
Question Answered: what is a oil flush and fuel flush?
April 29, 2014, 08:23 AM
I question the need for either service. If you are not having problems with oil burning/oil comsumption or fuel injection problems. I assume that your car is fairly new and still in warranty. The routine maintenenace that is listed in your ownwers manual are the services that you need to be concerned with.
Question Answered: While apply the brakes you feel and hear a pulsation through the brake pedal.

Most likely cause is a wheel speed sensor if failing. Need to check stored fault code with compatable scan tool first.
Question Answered: Will replacing the crank & camshaft position sensors or timing chains fix P1340?
April 10, 2014, 07:50 AM
Likely the timing chain and guides will need to be replaced. Not uncommom on this car when it reaches higher mileage approx. 150k miles.
Question Answered: Front end, extreme inner tire wear, will new struts fix this?

I assume you had a wheel alignment after that work was done....also best have a good shop take a road test for you so they can advise the cause of the noises.
