Radio will lose reception strength (primarily on AM, but FM to a certain extent) if car hits a bump (even small one) in the road. Sometimes the radio will regain signal strength if another bump is hit by car. Radio typically returns to acceptable reception signal strength the next time car is started. Naturally, dealership couldn?t recreate the problem.

A few days ago, my car started beeping -- the same beep one has if and when one leaves the keys in the ignition. On my car however, this beeping never stops ... the entire time the keys are in the ignition and I'm driving down the higway, it is beeping. SIMULTANEOUS to this beeping issue, a 3nd issue arose: my driver side window won't roll up or down. However, it only doesn't roll up and down if I hit the wndow switch -- if I put the top down and ten back up, the driver side window will roll all

Don't know if i messed up my rear axel after my passanger rear wheel hit the sidewalk very hard causing the wheel to enp up on the side walk. Impact also made a dent on that rim.

I have a 2011 Dodge Avenger. I had a strut replaced on the car at 2400 miles because it was leaking. It now has 17000. The dealer said that they only needed to replace one of them. Ever since the car has not handled right. It is very loose when traveling on the highway. It jumps and sways back and forth when you hit a bump. Techs have driven it and say it is the way that car drives. I disagree. Any help out there, please. I am so upside down because the car took a 10000 dollar hit in he

I have a 1986 Buick Century that was in great shape until hitting a deer. It took out the passenger side headlight area. The bumper is fine, the hood just has a dent, but in between needs to be replaced. The headlights survived but there's nothing to fasten them to. It looks like all one piece which holds the headlights on both sides with the grill in between. I have not been able to locate this part either new or used. I know the car is 25 years old, but I can't believe I have the only one in e

I own a 03 Jaguar X type 2,5L with 17" wheels. When I hit a bump a certain way I get a banging noise in the right front end. The suspension seems to be OK as far as I can tell. The car only has 24176 miles on it. To me it sounds like something may be loose. One mechanic said to him it sounded like a frozen shock absorber. Oddly it only happens when I hit a ridged bump.

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette- I am the original owner. The car has always had a bouncy ride in the back and when going over bumps with a person in the back seat (farthest back) on the passenger side, the car cab sounds like it is banging against something. We have had the car looked at-- we have had the muffler replaced--(it needed it) I don't know if any of this is related, but it has yet to be fixed. One person said it was the wheel covers... NOT. Anyway, got any ideas?

Heat/AC fan will not start until we either hit a good bump or smack the side of the floorboard vent. It is also starting to push less volume of air when it runs. Dealership said the blower motor needs to be replaced and that it would require the "Silver" series blower motor not the black one. I have went through a circus trying to get the correct part delivered from various websites so I went to NAPA. They sold me one that has nothing on it denoting "Silver series" but said it was the one I need

Ford fiesta 2000 i have changed wishbones/bushes as when i drove the car if i went over bumps the car would make a big impact noise. The noise improved and the road handling was better.

1998 Saturn: Grinding/rubbing/screaching noise somewhere up front. Usually I can hear it when I first take off and then after a block or two it quits. It also quits when the car is stopped. It seems to have started after I hit a bump with the front passenger-side tire a couple of weeks ago. At first, I thought it might be the brake drum, etc. but the noise does not seem to come from that part of the car.

I have an 1994 nissan maxima and every time I hit the brakes, or turn the steering wheel when I am backing up and hitting speed bumps the car makes a clicking sound. Almost sounds like when you scoot the seat up and it locks into place. The axle seems to be fine and everything is tightened. It only comes from the passenger side. What needs to be looked at?
