Having problems with your 2002 Ford Taurus ?

The cigarette lighters in my 2002 Ford Taurus SE aren't working, but the little plastic fuses all test good, both up under the dash and under the hood. Am I missing something? I found a glass Buss fuse on my console, but have no idea where it came from.

300zx dash re-installation I had enough trouble getting the dash board out myself. I've had a few people tell me that I had to place the cluster in first, and then try and put the dash board back in, so I decided to try that and now, when I go to screw in the bottom bolts on the dash board the cluster pops back up. Is there something I missing? Maybe the cluster needs to go back farther? Only diagram I had found was for the removal process and trying to do it backwards didn't work. Plllleaaase

Heater core went out on 1996 grand cherokee. Tore dash out and am down to pulling out heater assembly. Found the flapper door for I believe, the defroster tract, sitting in the bottom of the box. There is no rod or visible connections to the assembly. I believe it hinges at the top from what I can see, but what controls the door. I think I may have some missing linkage (used jeep) that runs that door. The airflow has never worked right. No matter where you would direct the air, it came out most


Mine was the same but the flapper was stuck in a closed position. (if it is the same one ) the mechanic replaced mine. The bottom of the flapper has some sort of post that rests in a hole on another piece to hold it in place. the post was rusted out ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

My 2001 Pathfinder SE seems to have a broken hood release cable. When I pull the inside release handle under the left side of the dash, the hood does not release and the handle does not return to the normal position. I looked under the dash and behind the handle. The cable is not broken here but does have some slack and I cannot pull the cable any further with my pliers. I think something is wrong with the hood latch itself. How can I open the hood? I have pushed down on the outside of the front

Terrible miss and loss of power at high speeds after driving for 15 minutes orr so. found to have a error code p301 306, misfire codes, replaced plugs and coil rail. driving action continued and same codes came up. tested fuel pump found it to be weak and shakey so I replaced. ran great, codes returned and repeat of driving action. found an answer (at a differ site) that carbon build up in injectors would send misfire code. replaced injectors. codes came back any idea.

I have a 2002 Hyundai Sonata 4CL (interference engine) that broke down recently (no longer starting) and upon inspection, found out that the timing belt needed replaced. After taking the timing belt off, we found not only a lot missing teeth on the belt in general, but there is a large section that the teeth are all missing, which leads us to believe something may have jammed. Also, knowing that all of this happened while the car was in motion, the big concern is that the pistons may have been d
