Question Answered: Loss of acceleration power on hills and no pickup power on flat.

need valve seals for the morning smoke, for the other issues maybe a dirty mass air flow sensor. careful what you use to clean electronic parts as its easy to cause more harm then good. Goodluck! hope that helps.
Question Answered: How do I fix turn signals ?
July 20, 2014, 11:13 PM
check fuses and if those are good and you have power then change the bulbs. philips screw driver should be all you need for removing any lights. bulbs simply twist out.
Question Answered: What could be the problem with 173,000 all maintenance performed & check enigine

not sure what your needing? if your trying to sell this vehicle and nobody wants to buy it the milage isnt really bad, motor was just broken in not long ago. but many ppl are afraid of cars at 200 000k or more. if your trying to say the check engine light is on then scan it. again not sure what you were asking.

Question Answered: I can crank my car and it will run but the engine starts to shake and knock
July 20, 2014, 10:51 PM
is the sound coming from the top end? a ping or knocking sound and shaking is probably timing or miss fires. pull plug wires one by one while engine is running (use rubber gloves and/or pliers) and if the motor does not change sound on any one cylinder then you have found a problem. could be a plug, wire or coil or coil packs, not sure what your car has.
Question Answered: Drivers window just stopped operating after car was washed
July 20, 2014, 10:39 PM
only the one window? if all others have power still its a connection at the window motor. try a couple of smacks to see if it starts working again, my crown vic needed a few smacks from time to time. was just to lazy to pull the door panel. (which is very easy btw)

Question Answered: I have a 2008 impala v6 3.5 flexfuel. engine sputter like it has a misfire

definitely do a tune up, if the problem persists could be a fuel filter, air filter. if the problem still persists check your timing
Question Answered: What is making my aztek 04 not shift and on the dashsay awd is disengaged whats?
July 19, 2014, 10:33 PM
just a guess but id say your shift solenoids are shot, however my experience was with a ford. still should be basically the same concept. on my for i had three shift solenoids, all for one objective, talk about over doing it. lucky for me one of the solenoids was just inside the pan so i pulled it and swapped the part. it worked for me so i can only hope you get it as easy as i did. dont know if that helps. Goodluck!

depends on how the cars driving? does it shift funny? shift hard? not shift at all? slip a little bit? leak at all?
