1994 Acura Integra LS- 2.0 lt B20 I have the AC installed and working with no leaks and the clutch works perfectly fine along with the compressor. The AC blows "Cool" , but not cold. What would I need to do/replace in order to make it blow cold like a newer car. I was thinking a new condensor or perhaps a new evaporator, but I don't know for sure.

One place told me that subarus need to have organic pads, mine are ceramic, another told me that shims are loose and nothng I can do but wait untill I need the brakes replaced again. Third guy said that front axal is causing braking noise. Do I need new axal to fix noise? At this point I do not know who to trust. I just want to ready the car to sell it. It i

How to retract/compress rear disc brake caliper piston on 2006 ford 500? Do you apply slight pressure in and rotate clockwise or what?

I have a 1995 eclipse GS-T. I bought it knowing it wasn't starting,which I easily fixed. It ran fine for a couple days, then as I was helping a friend move, the car decided to struggle to get to 40 mph and wouldn't rev over 3,000rpms. Since then I've replaced the ignition coil, plugs & wires, had battery charged ,and alternator tested. Now it won't start. The engine cranks but won't turn over. I'm pretty sure part of the issue is needing a new fuel pump, but also want to check the fuel pump rela


I don't think you have a relay issue. Test the fuel pressure. If there is sufficient pressure, there is what is called a "pre cat" that is bolted on the exhaust manifold by 5 bolts I believe. It is the big part of the exhaust under the hood and bolte ... Mitsubishi Eclipse

I have a 1990 BMW 535i. It seems that I need new bushings (not sure how they are spelled.) I heard that there are more than one set of them so I was wondering - first - what do bushings do and how many are there? Secondly, how I can identify which one is causing the "car to **** when I change gears and to make a big thump each time I shift gears? Lastly, replacing any of the bushings, how immediate and issue is it - I mean is it like your brakes that go slowly - or is it something that if I do

My car has been acting strange. The brake light will cut on and off, but the is no problem with the brakes I have had them check, and I maintain thee needed amount of brake fluid in the car. Today the car began to shake and cut off several times before I got home. I have a feeling it needs spark plugs but cant be sure.


The brake light problem is likely the fluid level sensor - either mounted in the cap or in the side of the master cylinder. Typically these sensors are not expensive or difficult to replace and doing so may cure the problem. You did not state what ve ... Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

I love scrap yards! Went to an auto salvage yard recently to look for parts for my girlfriend's 2001 VW Cabrio. I actually found the exact model/color of her car, only two years older. That never happens! Anyway, I needed parts to fix her drivers side window; new motor, window guides and brackets, and the car had it all except the cables were badly damaged. I am in need of a diagram that would preferably show how long replacement cables need to be and what kind of ferrules are needed for said ca

Took my car to the repair shop because my power steering went out. They told me I needed a belt tensioner ,belt and a pulley they would gather their prices and i would do the same. They havent called so I am trying to find the parts on my own how do I know what parts to get? I looked the parts up. Do I need a timing belt tensioner? the guy never told me there are 2 kinds of belts in my car so Im not sure. I dont want to buy the parts and find out its the wrong ones.


No, the timing belt connects the engine to the cam-shaft (these lift and lower the valves). This belt normally has teeth on one side and is covered so you don't see it. This belt also drives the water pump.\015\012\015\012The power stee ... 2002 Dodge Neon

Brakes I turned in my car to change my brake pads but, after 2 months it needed to be changed again. This time they said I also need a new brake disc. How is it within 2 months I needed to replace the pads and disc when it took me three years to wear down the original brakes? Now again I need to replace both pads and disc. It also makes a knocking sound when the brakes is not engaged. What causes this? Is it something the mechanic did that's not right.


It sounds like the rotor (brake disk) is warped. That would cause the pads to wear much more quickly because the disk "wobbles".\015\012The warped disk can also cause the noise, depending on how bad the warp is.\015\012When most shops ch ... 2004 Mazda 3

My tail light is out on my 04 Chevy Trailblazer. I went to Autozone to get a new bulb. When they were replacing it they said I might need a new Tail Light Connector Plate since it was kind of crumbling apart. Sure enough, they replaced the bulb and it didn't light. They said I do need that connector plate, and said they should have one. They looked on their computer and said that for some reason it says they can't order that part for some reason.

My car, 1994 Mazda 626 4cyl,would not pass emission testing. The shop said I had no compression in one cylinder. I was told I needed a valve job. As a part of that, I went ahead and had a new head gasket set. The shop has since replaced all the machined parts and the car won't start. I don't know much about car repair, but my theory is that it may be related to the timing belt and all the shop did was remove the parts that I mentioned above, sent the parts to the machine shop, got the parts ba

I have a 2003 L200 sedan. I took my car to one mechanic to have the rear brakes fix. He only put on the brake shoes. When I got my car back, the brakes were very low and soft. I took it to another mechanic who said they missed parts and the drums had to be replace. Do I have drum or disc brakes? When I got my car back, the brakes were perfect. I just want to make sure I wasn't charge for something I don't have.

My car was driving fine. It's a 2006 BMW 750 Li. WE take very good care of it. BMW suggest flushing the brakes as part of maintenance and I did. Three weeks later after paying $1500.00 for flushing brakes and other maintenance. The car brakes down again.

I just replaced my rear brake drum cylinders. I bled the system, made sure clear fluid was running through it with no air bubbles, and that everything was put back together correctly. when I started up the car, however, I had no resistance on my brake pedal and my rear passenger brake was not operating at all. I re-bled the system and made sure there were no leeks. Still no brake resistance. Thinking it might be a bad master cylinder, I purchased a new one, replaced it, and made sure everything
