1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic;165,000 miles. Check engine light comes on sporadically. Been told catalytic converter is trashed. Sometimes starts great; sometimes hard start. "Belches/burps/chugs" -- when idling (red light, stop sign, drive-up at bank) feels like it wants to 'go' and makes that sound like if I took my foot off the brake it would **** forward. Also rear end continues to make strange noises after engine is shut down.

I have a '93 Honda Accord with 230,000 miles. Recently it's been intermittently making a loud squealing noise when turning left or right at low speeds (like the squeaky sound you might hear when rubbing hard while cleaning glass). Doesn't happen all the time and doesn't happen when turning the wheel while standing still. It doesn't occur until after the engine has warmed up. Sometimes I can drive for blocks and make frequent turns with no noise, sometimes I drive the same route and it squeals at

Driver side brake light works intermittently, moving or not, in drive or in park, engine on or engine off, etc. Replaced bulbs. Sometimes, the brake pedal switch seems to make clicking sounds that go along with the brakes working or not, but that could be my imagination. The turn signal "clicker" goes real fast and then slows down to normal, but the dash indicator blinks at a constant steady rhythm. Could thee be related andd how can I fix the brake light? Thanks


Hello. Yes, they could be related. It sounds like the brake pedal switch needs to replaced. Your symptoms could also be caused by a weak ground. I recommend that you look in the local phone directory under autoelectric repair shops. These shops ... 1989 Jaguar XJ6

My 2004 Rodeo is making a "rattling" sound (almost like a vibration sound). Worse when engine first started, and then "settles down" after about 5 min of driving. Took it in to Transmission Specialist today and they said that they could determine that it was underneath the valve cover (think it relates to gasket/ Cam Shaft/ Timing), but to further pinpoint it would require about 3 hours of time. Needed me to authorize that time for $294 which would be applied to total repair bill....does this

My 2006 suzuki forenza after driving a few miles, makes a loud ''humming/buzzing'' noise from the rear of the car. it slows when you let off the throttle or brake. when you shut the car off, sometimes it makes a ''rattle'' that lasts up to a minute coming from what sounds like behind the rear driver side tire. is this signs my fuel pump is failing?


If your fuel pump was failing you would have engine problems the supply of fuel would be interupted, I would guess that you have a wheel bearing that is worn out you can check this yourself by jacking the rear of the car up wheel off the ground one ... 2006 Suzuki Forenza

In the winter, my car makes a sound like a piston Knock. i have been told that my car does not have pistons. is this true? in the summer it does not make that sound even if driving on a cold engine, in the winter the engine makes that sound, untill it is warmed up then the sound will go away. Is this a common problem for the spyder?


Yes your car does have Pistons.. and No its not normal for this to happen in the winter. However I would recommend that you use a lighter oil in the winter than the summer like 5w-30 or 10w-30 no higher. Good Luck ... 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder
