Having problems with your 1985 Cadillac Eldorado ?

Is replacement of driveshaft advisable due to precise work required.

\015 One tip on drive shaft is worn off according to my technician and he said that driveshaft has to be replaced. He also said that he cannot garantie that it will work 100% because it is a very sensitive operation and anything can go wrong in spite the best care while installing it.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

This sounds like a con. I've never heard of a driveshft tip wearing out, but I don't know everything. The only scenario I can envision is the inside of the "end" being rounded out such that the spline no longer grabs. In any event, this is not brain surgery.

I have a 2001 cavalier. I recently noticed the passenger floorboard (it's usually just me in my car so wouldn't notice passenger floorboard) & carpet are soaked! It doesn't smell of anti-freeze or anything. My mechanic believes it's due to a windshield replacement almost ten years ago that started as a slow leak. He advised me to contact the company that did the work, which I did. The man who came to look at my car said it was the a/c. I'm not using the a/c in January! Any thoughts? Please help!


There are 2 problems that i know of that could be cause by a/c assuming that is the problem. One is the drain hose that goes out of the firewall could be plugged causing water formed by condensation to back-up into the car (but shouldn't be consider ... Cars & Trucks

Thank you for your help in replacing the fuel line in the 96 Corsica 3.2 The tool for replacing it worked fine.but now the car wont start. It was working fine before replacing the line. I loosened the hose clamp on the return line and gas does drip out. I didn't try the input line. Is there something that I have to do to start the engine after the fuel lines are replaced? I have tried it over twenty times, with jumper cables on to save the battery. Please advise. Thank you

My wiper fuse blew due to snow resistance. I replaced the fuse and they worked again, but then noticed that tail lights weren't working. Swapped fuses around a bit and got tail lights to work, but then even after replacing the wiper fuse, they don't work. Checked continuity of all fuses, and made sure that every slot that should have a fuse did indeed have a good fuse in the slot. Checked visually what I was able to see, and don't see any problems.

Hi, 3 weeks ago I had a track rod end replaced on my Bmw X3 under warranty. The car required this for its Mot which was due and also warranted by the BMW garage that supplied it one year ago. Incidentally the mileage was just over 20k. I was told no tracking check would be required. 3 weeks later the tyre on the side where the track rod end was replaced is now almost bald on the outside edge. The other tyres are all still very good with no uneven wear. What do you think

Check fuses 13 and 37. Also check relay and resistor. The relay is usually in the engine compartment relay box. It should click when the blower switch is turned on. The resistor will show signs of burning if it's bad.\015\012\015\012\ ... 1995 Honda Civic
