Question Asked: New battery drained within a few months
March 02, 2016, 01:58 PM
We keep putting batteries into this car and after few months its dead. We have gotten 4 batteries within months. We have a rebuilt alternator that i think is the problem because this our 2nd time getting it rebuilt. Can the alternator be the issue? Starter checks fine. How can i check for a parasitic drain also?

02 Buick century and damn battery keeps draining. First time it was alternator. So we got it rebuilt with lifertime warranty. Second time it drained it was the alternators diode's that were bad. Now this time I believe its the stupid rebuilt alternator. Starter is fine. Might as well buy new alternator!!!!
Question Asked: Tranny flush or change?
February 25, 2016, 09:39 PM
Bought a 04 impala from a local dealer. Had for 2 weeks and its starting to shift a tad hard. Got oil changed and said tranny needs serviced. They suggest a flush but i did my research and it suggested that it was not good to flush the tranny. Should i get just a fluid change, filter and drop pan ? It has 139,459 miles on it.
Question Asked: Temperature gauge going back and forth.

My centurys temperature gauge began to go back and forth recently. It has coolant in it. I had the car for seven years. I had the water pump changed about 2 years ago. Coolant flush 2 years ago. The fans kick on when it starts to over heat. The radiator does have rocks in it and a lilttle bent up. Im sure why this is happening but would like some advice!!!

Question Asked: Can radiator have an effect on AC not working??
June 13, 2015, 06:34 PM
AC does not blow cold air. Went to a shop to get it recharged and was told there is a leak. From my assumption it is tge radiator because coolant does stay in there long. Leaks out after a few days. Also tried using R134 can of refrigerant and it did nit work either. Some advice would be helpful.

I went to get my ac recharged at a shop and was told it was a leak. I believe its the radiator that leaks because coolant does not stay in the car for long within a couple days its all gone.Also we tried recharging with R134 can and that did not work either. Any help would be nice!
