Question Answered: air conditioning / heat zone controls
November 02, 2010, 02:13 PM
The fault you are describing with your 1999 Buick Park Avenue is most commonly caused by a failed temperature door actuator. I would classify that as a mechanical problem. I would recommend that you have the problem properly diagnosed before attempting any repairs.

Question Answered: power steering fluid leaking at power brake assist
November 02, 2010, 02:10 PM
The leaking components should be replaced. It is not that uncommon for the "hydro=boost" units to leak on vehicles of this type.
Question Answered: Lower control arm bushings
November 02, 2010, 02:08 PM
The lower control arms are the bottom suspension prices on your 2003 Toyota Avalon. They connect the lower part of the steering knuckle (that is the vertical piece behind the wheel) to the vehicle frame. The bushings are at the connection to the frame and are fairly well hidden from view. Depending on the suspension design there are one or two mounting locations on the frame on each side of the vehicle, one bushing at each location. The place to look to see if the work has been completed would be the bolts that mount the control arms to the frame. Look for wrench marks on the bolt heads and nuts.
Question Answered: My tachometer guage is not working at all
November 02, 2010, 01:54 PM
It sounds as if the tachometer gauge in your 2005 Buick LeSabre has failed internally. If that is the case the complete gauges "cluster" will need to be removed and send to a specialty repair shop. I would guess repairs would be in the $350 to $450 range.

The vehicle speed sensor should be located on the tail shaft housing of the automatic transmission of your 2007 Chevrolet Suburban.
Question Answered: bolt sequence for intake manifold
November 02, 2010, 01:43 PM
I cannot send a picture with the specific bolt tightening sequence for the intake manifold on your 1992 Chevrolet G Van but some general rules are as follows. Start from the middle (center) , working toward the outside edges in a circular pattern. First pass should be about 75% of spec, followed by two more passes at the final spec.
Question Answered: where does the fuel pump auto switch sit at?
November 02, 2010, 01:38 PM
Your 1996 GMC Sonoma does not use an "auto switch" for the fuel pump. The relay is controlled by the powertrain control module. Power comes from the ECM/BATT fuse in the instrument panel fuse box. Power is supplied from the fuse to the fuel pump relay in the relay center (not sure where that is). When the PCM commands the relay on, power is sent from the relay to the fuel pump. You will need to diagnose why no power is getting to the fuel pump.
Question Answered: CHECK ENGINE LIGHT
November 02, 2010, 01:29 PM
With the check engine light on a fault code has been stored in the engine control module of your 2005 Chevrolet Aveo. The fault code can be retrieved with a scan tool or code reader. The fault code should be properly diagnosed and the cause repaired before resetting the light. For more information please use the following link - http://repairpal.com/check-engine-light
Question Answered: Location of Spark Plugs
November 02, 2010, 01:23 PM
The spark plugs in your 2005 Chevrolet Malibu are located under the ignition module/coil assembly on the top of the engine.
Question Answered: Cylinder #1 & # 2 not firing, after timing belt change
November 02, 2010, 01:22 PM
Chances are some valves were damaged when the timing belt broke on your 1994 Honda Accord. Have you performed a compression check?
