Having problems with your 2004 Ford F150 ?

Seatbelt Unlatches I have a 2004 F-150 and the driver's seatbelt keeps coming unlatched. I can latch it and pull hard on it and it stays latched, but at some point the seatbelt suddenly unlatches by itself, even when there is no pressure applied to the latch or the seatbelt.

This sounds like something broken in the latch. Do yourself a favor. Before it comes unlatched in an accident, go to your local dealer and get a replacement latch ASAP. That is one device in a car you shouldn't ever have to question. If it doesn't work right, replace it.

Part 2 of my first question. TO: JWVPOOL3: I don't think I explained whats really going on with my ABS. My ABS light NEVER went on at all. The first time it happened the brake pedal kept pulsating. They only way I was able to stop my vehicle was to pump the brake, which is the opposite of what your suppose to do. Which is to apply steady, constant pressure on the brake pedal until the vehicle has stopped.If I applied constant pressure my truck kept going, and at one point I was trying t

Hi can anyone point me in the right direction to find where the oil pressure switch is fitted on the Mk 5 golf Gti 2.litre petrol as would like to change the switch cos oil light intermittently comes on :low oil pressure.

No power from turbo at all. Rear exhaust seal was loose but I still can't stop exhaust from leaking at this point. Turbo spins well without and signs of being loose. It does not seem to build pressure of apply pressure to engine. Old Banks Power Pack is installed so the gauges show high exhaust temp and no turbo boost at all. Any suggestions for a cash strapped owner?

I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD LT with Duramax Diesel. I have recently lost all brake pressure and can depress brake pedal all the way to the floor. My ABS light came on yesterday while spinning tires in 4wd low and applying brakes. It went away, but when getting unstuck and driving away lost brake pressure. I believe I leaked brake fluid at some point and think that I probably blew my brake line. How should I approach fixing this myself.

I closed a tailgate with some coolers inside the bed that were a tad larger than the bed itself. I had to slam the tailgate shut in order to get it latched. Now I can't open the tailgate at all. The left side is jammed. The right side unlatches. Even after I have released the pressure on the left side, I cannot unlatch it. Any suggestions?

I bought replacement struts for the hood on my 2001 V70. It looks like the old ones ought to simply snap off and the new ones snap in place.

I have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe with an automatic transmission. Today when I was driving it all of a sudden sounded like it came out of gear and the engine reved when I applied gas like you're in neutral. I pulled alongside and switched it into park at which point it made like a grinding or clicking noise everytime it gets shifted back into park. It starts up fine but neither reverse or drive will engage when shifted into it. Had previous knowledge that the transmission module needed to be replac

I have a 2004 chevy impala.

Low refrigerant prevents the a/c pump from kicking on due to the low pressure switch. i would try to fill with a can of R134 (refrigerant) from the auto parts store. the low pressure switch may have gone bad. When applying the R134 refrigerant, where does it go? Can i do it myself. After applying the regfrigerant and if that does not help could it be the low pressure switch? If the low pressure switch is gone is it expense to repair.

To start off, I had purchased this used so it has been certified and e-tested. My first day and earlier today, the braking has been perfectly fine! It responded immediately and everything was a go. Now it has snowed a lot today and I have all season tires (didn't expect it to snow since it hasn't all winter) and now it is just the brake pedal that is the problem. If I apply very little pressure and slowly to the pedal it is fine, however at regularly applied pressure to stop the car from 20km +,
