Answers :

Not vaccumn leak- if you rev engine and it stalls - it could be a melted catalytic converter- hissing is exhaust forcing its way out at pipe seals

2004 intruder 1400 runs great up to 3800 rpm then sputters and will not go much higher... otherwise runs great... could this be a vacuum leak somewhere? Love to hear your thoughts. Thanks... Perry.


Sounds to me like it could be a Mass Airflow Sensor issue. Or Air fuel mixture problem. Is the harness to the MAF and Trottle control sensors hooked up right? These are just simple solutions that may work. Check all of your fuses as well. One c ... Cars & Trucks

My 2003 dodge neon makes a crackling noise when turning the steering wheel right or left. I can still hear the sound a tad bit while driving. It stops some when I have driven for a while. I checked my fluid and it was kind of low so I added more. I'll check again to see if it has leaks. Any idea what this could be and how much I'm looking at?

A few problems actually. I have an 05 Kia spectra automatic 104,000 miles that surges forward. I can be stopped and all of a sudden it jumps forward, so much that I have to hit the brakes. Also, It recently has died on me twice when stopped, it sputters and idols low, then dies. Is this a fuel pump/filter issue? My wipers work but I can't get the wiper fluid to come out. What gives? Then when I get up to high speed 60+ I hear it running high & rough sounding, like its not shifting gears, but it


With the washer Fluid I would check you fuse first. If the fuse is good it could be a bad connectionat the pum or you have a burnt out washer fluid pump. As for the Surging you could need a tune up if not done recently or servicing the timing belt. I ... 2005 Kia Spectra

I have a 2000 s80 volvo which i hear a clunking sound when turning right on the drivers side. The other day found a leak on the passenger side of car which some one said was power steering fluid. i just had to replace the air flow meter and alternator. Wondering if i can drive and just keep tabs on fluid level for a while wonder how much this repair is gonna be?

My 1998 olds cutlass is leaking anti freeze. Have you happen to hear of this before? If so do you know how a DIY can fix the problem? Do you know how much the parts might cost and if I can get a manual or get the steps needed to guide me in the process? Thanks, Dan


First thing you have to do is determine where the leak is coming from. Once you know that we can give you help with how to repair. The leak could be a easy or hard repair. You could have a hose going bad the whole way to an engine problem. If you can ... 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass

The car has developed a 'hissing' noise that occurs after ~5-10 minutes of driving; only hear down by the pedals and not very loud, and doesn't/hasn't seemed to affect driving or any of the gauges. Determined that's it's some kind of vacuum leak - any idea where to start before tearing apart the dash? Thanks much


A lot of the air vents are controlled by vacumn, some auto stores sell cheap stethescopes to help isolate the leak, before you pull the whole dash apart. change the air vent settings , may help isolate it as well ... 2000 Chevrolet Corvette

2006 Mercury Milan, 4 cyl. PO410 and P0491, secondary air system malfunction. Put 12v on the air pump motor and it spins. Fuse is okay, relay looks okay (not sure if I tested it right). Any idea on how to test diverter? Seems like it has to be electrical...should hear the motor start even if there is a vac leak, right?

I am trying to determine if it is worth fixing the timing chain on the 2000 oldsmobile intrigue. i hear they are fairly expensive. we just replaced a cracked radiator and the serpentine belt. The mechanic says we also need 3 new motor motor mounts, new front struts and that we have leaks at the valve cover gaskets and at the power steering hose. It is worth fixing this car? It seems to have so much wrong with it.


Wow. Only worth it if the mechanic is trustworthy and you can't afford to get out from under it. It is a pretty complicated repair. The car probably isn't worth more than a couple thousand dollars, depending on where you are located. Why do they wan ... 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

Opps Sorry about leaving out that bit of the description. I have a 1999 Toyota 4Runner 4X4. It is a 6cyl 3.4L with an AT. It does not have a locking Rear Diff. I actually took it to Pep Boys tonight and they said that the LR axle seal is leaking. I am sort of disappointed to hear that b/c a friend at Napa replaced it less than 6 months ago. On the other hand it should not cost me anything other than time to repair it as I am hoping that it will be covered under a warranty. Thank - you very much


Its odd that a leaking rear seal would do that ... only way i can see it is if it managed to leak out all your rear end fluid. however then you would have alot more noise and problems...Thanks for the complement , they take after my wife ;) ... 1999 Toyota 4Runner

Have a 2000 Lumina. Air vents do not blow air when accelerating. When you let up on the gas it will blow, but not as much as it normally does. When driving it tends to come and go. The defrost and floor vents are working alright. My husband has checked hoses and says there is no leak that he can see or hear. What do you think it could be?

I have a 2003 Jaguar Type X with only 43,000 miles. While in for servicing, a mechanic told me that I needed a new water pump, because my pump is leaking. However, I don't see any evidence of a leak, nor to I hear any unusual noices coming from under the hood and my car is not over heating. Another mechanic told me that I shouldn't worry about it unless, I see evidence of a leak, hear an unusual noice from under the hood or my car over heats. Should I be worried?

I have a stock '02 RSX-S with 93K miles.I recently started hearing a ticking sound coming from the engine while accelerating at low rpm's in any gear (i can hear it at higher rpm's too, but at that point the engine rev starts to cover the noise up). With the windows closed it sounds like it's coming from the center of the engine. It's much more noticeable with the windows open driving next to something (and it's much more noticeable with the passenger side window down than the drive side). Some
