I'm a car guy, through and through. I raced circle track for nearly 10 years, and like muscle cars/ hot rods, and the outdoors. I have been working on cars since high school. I have been married to my wife Lorie for 28 years. We have 2 children, Kaila, and Landon. I started Fairway Auto Repair in 1991. I was tired of not being appreciated at my job. This experience has helped me appreciate the people who work for me, also my customers.

Question Answered: how do I correct a fuel gauge that is on the wrong side of the stop peg

It sounds like you have a front steering issue, possibly worn parts. or a wheel alignment issue.
Question Answered: I have a 2001 Ford Taurus SE 3.0 dual overhead cam.The dpfe hoses blow off.

If the hoses are blowing off there must be to much back pressure in the exhaust system. Yes, I would suspect the converter being plugged. Do the hoses feel like they are tight to the DPFE and pipes, on the exhaust?

No they are not
Question Answered: How many miles do i need to drive for the "not Ready" on board computer to kick
July 31, 2014, 03:10 PM
As csubak30 said, all vehicles are different, and it is not a miles thing. Pretty typically... If you let the car cool completely down, overnight then drive to a place (freeway) where you can drive at a steady speed for 15 miles on way, 55-65 mph. Make sure the fuel tank is 3/4-1/4 full. Drive the car normally. Drive the car back that 15ish miles. Most likely the monitors will all run. If any have not, which does happen. There is something the computer does not like. And it is stopping it from running.
Question Answered: My right headlight will not come up when I turn on the lights.

It is very common for the headlight motor gears to get stripped. Do you hear grinding/ nasty noises when the headlights are turned on? This car also has a headlamp control module. (pops the lights up)

What have you done to find out why your van is overheating, what have you checked?
Question Answered: I got 2 rejections for OBDII EGR, EVAP SYSTEM, and HEATED O2 not ready. Why?

What steps did you do to do the drive cycle? Typically, if the monitors are not complete, it means the drive cycle has not been run. Could be there is a fault that has not turned on the check engine light, or your computer is not seeing the right conditions to run the drive cycle.
Question Answered: I CAN'T GET MY HUMMER TO TURN PROPERLY. ITS JUMPING AND HESITATING.

If your issue is with the vehicle feeling like it is jumping when making turns. Are your tires the same size all the way around? Is the vehicle in 2wd, not 4 wheel drive?
