Answers :

What you have to do is drill a small hole in the instrument cluster lense and with a small pick or piece of wire or something, pull the needle to the other side of the stopper. It'll work just fine after that. I've done it this way in the past.

Ok car is running alittle hot. The temp needle is usually at 195 and now sits around 210-215. Right between 195 and the red. I have been trying to figure out what can be causing it. Twice about a month ago when the needle was at 210 the reservoir boiled over. This is what I have done so far. New reservoir cap (don't have a radiator cap), New thermostat, new hoses, new heater core, had radiator tested for blockage. Still is running warmer. I won't have it pressure checked. The last time the shop


It could be but if you replaced the termostat you may have got a 210 or even a 220 which would cause the car to run a little warmer than it used to ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

My 2001 Mitsubishi Spyder's convertible top went down one morning but won't come back up. I hear a click when I try to raise it. We even tried to help it along manually while depressing the close button, but didn't get very far. The close button seems to be ok. Also.....I have noticed that the tint on the left side rear window is coming off....due to a leak? Could a leak be causing the roof problem now?

Can bad CV joints cause steering to be harder, and cause steering to be harder to one side than the other. My buddy's 2009 civic is only 6 months old which would be weird for a bad cv joint, plus he has no clicking when turning but, but does have a quick clanging sound when first turning the wheel. Also on first acceleration and only on first acceleration he hears a thunk. Trying to get to the bottome of this, and dealer is no help, any thoughts?


Possible lower ball joint it sounds like, if it was a cv joint more than likely it would make a noise anytime the vehicle is in motion ... 2005 Nissan Altima

We think we have it somewhat, but we can't be sure without schematics. Help?

Grumbling Noise Recently changed tires on my 2000 Ford Expedition. put 2 new Uniroyals tires on rear and (2) 80% tread goodyears on front. The vehicle started make grumbling noise on drivers side like its trying to catch up. . Later learned the 80% tires had flat spots. Could this be causing the noise . took to mechanic not the transfer case. Any help Appreciated


Yes it could cause the noise also having 80% tread is not good on the transfer case as it will constantly be putting stress on it. replace your fronts with matching tires and the noise should go away ... 2000 Ford Expedition
