My oil light comes on and pings when I come to a stop-just had oil changed and no leak. I have owned this van since it was new, and have regularly changed oil and had maintenance done. Has about 132,000 miles on it. Also, back hatch door won't open-one day it worked-the next it didn't. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks!

Am doing some maintenance work on my cousins 2003 Kia Rio. One of the maintenance items on the 60,000 mile checklist is to replace the timing belt. I have done plenty of repair and maintenance jobs on cars before. Alternators, struts, cv joints, etc. I've even torn out an old VW bug motor, reset the valves, and place the engine back in and got it running.

After having some work done in my 05 Expedition we started having electrical system problems as follows: Door Lights/Interior lights don't come on when the door is opened. Interior lights only come on when you force them on with the Display Dimmer switch and use the interior light switches. Auto Headlights fail to shut-off on their own from time to time. The work that was done was specific to replacing the head gaskets so I am not sure what they could have done, but they claim it would not h

98 town and country hatch won't open. When I pull on the handle it "feels" like it's still locked - no resistance. It started giving me trouble on a family trip where we had a little too much behind the back seat and I closed the hatch under minor resistance (compressed a sleeping bag). It closed fine at home but after driving 7 hours it didn't open right. We re-arranged the packing but the damage was done. Since then it's been sporadic - we may have to pull the handle 2 or 3 times to open it bu
