I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Galant. I have a problem with the cooling system and air conditioner. I removed the thermostat and flushed the radiator already but the car still starts to overheat whenever I come to a stop and cool down as I drive down the road, the air conditioner also quits working at an idle. It has an electric [dual] fan system that is not belt drive and the air conditioner works while going down the road. The fan was also working when I let it idle and watched it with the hood up.


Hello! First just a few questions...Is there any debris blocking air flow through the grill area, between the air conditioning condenser and the radiator? if not the radiator itself is to blame...The cooling fins are clogged externally and/or the int ... Mitsubishi Galant

The overdrive quit working in my 2000 volvo s40. All other gears work right and shift smoothly. When driving on the highway, if i let off the gas to coast, it seems to kick into overdrive, but any pressure at all on the gas pedal kicks it back into the passing gear.


Several suggestions, some cheap, others not. The overdrive relay is the first suspect. It's located on the relay rack behind the fuse panel (usually). Cheap fix. About $10 on Ebay. Just be sure the part numbers match. I always carry a spare. The spee ... 2000 Volvo S40

1995 Chevrolet silverado 5 speed transmission. Drives great and runs great . Just started having trouble with the shifting of gears.

My 95 neon lost reverse gear completely after driving on an excessively crappy gravel road, where i skimmed a couple of huge dirt piles. The reverse gear worked perfectly the day before, and worked once that day, but was really weak and i had to rev the motor higher than i have ever revved it to move 30 feet at 5 mph. Now reverse dont even seem to click in and the engine will idle if I put it in L1, no matter how fast i go. Might I have cracked the valve body, or maybe knocked some dirt loose, o

While driving the transmission jerked and stopped. Shifting into N it began to move forward slightly and then stopped. This happened all within about 3 - 5 minutes going up hill. It will not go into any gear, not even reverse. Once cool the van once again goes into gear forward & reverse. But except to move it forward without gas assistance I only rolled forward about five feet. I was told by a mechanic that it is the gear and chain set that attaches the engine to the transmission. Is this possi

My 2005 reg BMW is difficult to get into 1st or reverse gear when i start it from cold the and is very notchy in other gears it pulls OK on hills so it does not appear to be the clutch and after about 20 min of driving the problem dis appears this was the case until i noticed the clutch pedal was much lower to the floor than the break pedal. if i lift the pedal with my feet before starting the car the gears work normally.


You say that the it appears to not be the clutch, but if the clutch pedal is much lower to the floor than the brake pedal, that's an indication that the either the slave or master cylinder is leaking. If you lift the pedal with your feet, the gears w ... BMW 525

Brake problem I think there is a problem with my brakes. I drive and it feels like the brakes are on. Im not pressing on the brake and when i let go of the gas it slows down as if Im braking. My engine sounds fine and i can go thru the gears quite easily. However when i reach my higher gears I lose a lot of speed. right around the 3rd gear the engine is working fine but I loose speed. I checked my oil and my brake fluid, and topped them both off. I should also note a very heavy smell... I believ

I drive a 2004 silverado 1500 and the 10A fuse keeps blowing for the vent selector. It'll get stuck on one mode. (Either defrost, or feet, or something). It on its third fuse in a month. The AC works fine, the fan works fine, but I think the heat quits and the air won't change where it comes out of.


Sounds like a bad actuator, the actuator is a small motor used to control a door in the heater box, there are a few doors to control temp of air and then one for mode (location of air blowing out ) and one for recir. try to locate and unplug it and ... Cars & Trucks

My 93 Wagoneer is 4WD all time. Pulled into town doing about 35mph and heard a loud knock. It would do it a few seconds after taking off from a stop and when It would try to shift. Before I could get where I was going it quit alltogether. I had nothing in 4 wheel high. Even if you put it in Park it will still roll. 4 wheel low works just fine but now in 4 wheel high when you put it in gear (reverse, drive and lower gears) it make a spinning grinding noise sometimes it will stop if you put it in

Transmission problem my son has a cavalier. when driving today the transmission quit working. you put it in drive or reverse and it will not move. its full on fluid. i smelt the fluid on dipstick and it didnt smell burnt or sweet. this is an automatic transmission. whenever i shifted it into gears I couldnt feel it or hear it. Im wondering if possibly linkage or maybe a hose off.


Sounds like linkage all right, especially if the shifter is limp. You got lucky. My old '83 Chevy Chevette got stuck in 1st gear this way. Usually an easy fix, just look for where the rods are supposed to connect, and a new cotter pin will usually ta ... 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier

I drive an hour each way to work. My 1989 Buick LeSabre Limited drives beautifully for about 1/2 an hour. Once it heats up, the "service engine" light comes on the "temp" idiot light flashes and the motor rolls and tries to quit. However, the car gives no indication of a temperature problem (no smoking, smell, expanding hoses, leakes, nothing). I recently replaced the plugs & wires and the cooling sensor. This morning, the weather was much cooler and the car ran like a dream. A friend of mine pu
