My advise: Take it to another garage and let them test the coolant to see if there is a headgasket problem and then go back to where you bought it. I think the garage you bought the car is trying to stall and delay until you have no warranty.

I have just bought a Honda Accord 22i - CTDI and am experiencing starting problems. You have to keep your ignition turning for quite sometime before it kicks in but runs like a dream when driving?

If the fault is occcuring only when in traffic, that is when it is idling with no free flow of air to the radiator to cool off, then the suspect can be the radiator itself.\012If some of the radiator pipes are blocked then this can be possible. ... 2004 Mini Cooper

Gas fumes while the Jeep is running or not running. I've taken it to a garage, they can't find a leak. When driving the Jeep, I have to put the window down, not all the time, because of the fumes inside. There's no drip, no wet spot on the gas tank. It's a mystery. I've parked my Jeep because I don't know what to do. The company that did maintenance on my Jeep since I bought it, went out of business. Is it a fuel line? Help.....

I was told by the repair shop that my water pump belt needs to be replaced. I bought the belt, read my haynes manual, which said to turn the tensioner clockwise. The problem is I see a way to do this. I can only find one bolt and there is a lip around it where I cannot fit a sock onto it. So basically, how do I change the water pump belt?

I have an EGR Excessive flow fault. I have removed and cleaned and tested (good) the EGR valve. I believe I have a bad EGR vacuum regulator valve. I found a sight on line that gave the OHM rating the valve is supposed to have but I cannot find it. Can you give me the proper OHM range for this valve? I believe it said something like 500 - 800 ohm's. I am getting 17 ohm's.


Well the solution is very simple, replace the EGR back pressure transducer. That should regulate the flow of exhaust gases with the fresh air intake and makes the engine run smoothly. However this valve is critical for optimizing the combustion in t ... Volkswagen Jetta
