Most likely it's going to be the motor mounts, the bushings are common to go bad on front wheel drive cars and will need to be replaced. Replace them with urethane engine mounts, they last longer and cost about the same as the OEM from the dealer. \012

My ABS and Trac off light keep coming on and stays on while driving. On top of that, while driving on dry roads my No Trac Light comes on and it feels like my car is trying to shift but I can tell its from the wheels and not so much from the transmission...I have washed it hoping it would be dirty sensors but that has not worked. I checked the fuses but again those were fine...

I have a 1996 Dodge Neon. I just bought it used from a car lot and still making payments on it. The transmission has been slipping on it when I drive it. It's been going through oil and also seems to be loosing transmission fluid somewhere, so I have been checking these on a regular basis. Yesterday I was letting my car run in the driveway to warm up to check the fluids and noticed anti-freeze coming out on the ground in the front by the passenger side. Could someone please tell me what could th

4 WD High and 4WD Low lights blink at the same time (6 times, then off; then 6 times, then off, etc.). The problem seems to begin when I run in reverse, then put it in drive. It appears that the transmission is stuck, it grinds some and then "pops" loose. The vehicle will go forward, but I can't tell if it is in 4 WD drive after that. Often times the 4WD High light won't come when I turn the switch, even if it is driven for a while. Turning the vehicle off and then on again seems to cure the

I just bought a 1998 Subaru Legacy L. Within the first week of purchasing this heap, I had to dump $800 to get it up to driving condition. I literally had the engine overhauled. Now only two weeks later, the check engine light has returned and the transmission was running so rough that I cannot drive it because it bucks, sticks, jolts, etc. Can anyone tell me what would cause this problem? I am almost thinking that the stupid mechanic may not have tightened down one of the bolts or motor mounts


You didn't have the engine overhauled for $800. Maybe you had the timing belt replaced?The check engine light could be on for any number of reasons. The only way to know for sure is to have it scanned and retrieve the trouble codes. Once ... 1998 Subaru Legacy

Unexplainable noise I have a 5spd manual transmission, 1999 Honda Civic Ex with the 1.6L SOHC V-Tec. If the car is at about 25000 rpm and you try to go any higher, a noise that sounds like air is being forced out, comes from below the driver side door somewhere. It is very loud and it is driving me crazy. I have had numerous experts look at it and tell me what they think it is, and nothing they have told me is true so far. I have changed the plugs and plug wires, distributor cap, and even the ol

I have a ford winstar and the O/D light is flashing and the check transmission light is on but that only comes on once you start driving. My Break light and ABS light is on all the time. My odometer does not work and neither does my speedometer. I have had the ford dealership put in a used ABS module but they are telling me they can't get a connection when they try to program it. i am wondering if it is even the ABS module or something else. All these lights started at the same time when i

2002 Hyundai Matrix transmission problem. While driving the engine check light comes on and I am unable to kickdown to overtake. Whenever, I try to drive from a complete stop, the car seem to be lazy. I discovered that if I switch off the car then start, then switch off a second time then start, the check light comes off. I am then able to drive and kickdown as usual until the engine check light comes back on. What can cause this problem and how can I fix it?
