Question Answered: car surge
June 14, 2010, 05:01 PM
Sounds like a misfire, but this can be many things. One would need to experience the problem and run a few tests and checks to determine what is going on here. Better take it to a shop and have a diagnosis performed.
Question Answered: No Cold Air from AC

Possibly low on refrigerant, or could be many other things. Get a basic check done to see if it's low. The shop may recharge it and have to check for leaks to find the problem.
Question Answered: a/c works moving stops when stopped

I would get the system checked, it may be low on refrigerant. Or you may have a radiator fan that is not working. Best to have a shop look at this to determine what is really wrong.

Question Answered: How to check the power window motor in a 2002 Ford Windstar?

Pull the door panel and use a voltmeter to see if the motor is getting the proper ground and power signals.
Question Answered: fuel gauge not working
June 14, 2010, 04:53 PM
The sender in the tank may be bad, the fuel gauge or the wiring in between. Sometimes it's just a dirty level sensor, try using some Chevron Techron in the tank see if it helps clean the fuel level sensor.
Question Answered: Check oil light is on
June 14, 2010, 04:51 PM
This means the oil pressure is low, or there is a problem with the oil pressure warning light circuit. Start by checking the oil level, then oil pressure and then the sensor and circuit for the oil light.
Question Answered: A/C has coolant but it is not cooling the car
June 14, 2010, 04:49 PM
I would check to see if your compressor is getting power when it stops cooling, if it doesn't then start troubleshooting the circuit. This is not too difficult but you cannot guess when doing this kind of work, you'll end up replacing incorrect parts. Better if you diagnose first or have a shop diagnose it for you. You looking at paying at least 1 hour diagnosis time to check it out.

They are normally in a housing where the upper radiator hose attaches to the cylinder head. You might find a picture if you look on parts.com or one of the other parts sites.

Car Review: 2005 Suzuki Forenza

for a compact car with a 2.0L 4 cylinder to get such poor mileage is bizarre. it's not a barn burner for sure, so it seems like the mpg would be better? there's no check engine light that the dealer says would be on if there was a problem, but seems like something is wrong
Car Review: 2005 Jaguar S-Type
January 06, 2009, 10:50 AM
When I'm driving my wife's Jag around the vineyards of Sonoma it makes the high price of upkeep worth it. This is a luxurious vehicle that exudes class, something I need much more than my wife! It's a fortune every time I take it in to the shop, but that isn't a surprise. I've owned Audi's, Porsche's and Mercedes and they all seem to have their share of problems.
Car Review: 1999 GMC Savana 2500
January 06, 2009, 10:31 AM
I have a 1999 GMC Savana 2500 cargo van with the 5.0L V8. I use this vehicle for work and I treat it pretty poorly, but it keeps coming back for more. I've replaced a transmission, alternator and it eats brakes because of the hills around here, but I expect that! I'll consider another one when this one is put out to pasture!
