When driving my 2005 Toyota Corolla, the oil light starts flashing and eventually stays on. The car is making noise... vibration? ... but it doesn't sound good. Then it stalls. I start it up after a few minutes, it's okay, then repeat: oil light flashes, then the oil light stays on, the car gets loud, steering wheel is shaky, then the car stalls. Checked the oil and it's full. Brought it to a mechanic, and they changed the engine's air filter and spark plugs, and said I wouldn't have any m

Now car is making a bubbling or boiling water sound and the Power Steering Fluid I've put in the reservoir is gone within a few minutes it is also hard to steer when making very sharp turns (turning the wheel all the way) you have to muscle it because it's so hard to turn the wheel all the way (coming to the ho

My 1995 Buick Lesabre has a low humming noise. It started right after I got my oil changed. It sounds just like the noise a car makes when you don't have any power steering fluid in your car and when you turn the steering wheel, that whining noise it makes? Well that is the sound, but it is not as loud. It don't make the sound when I turn the steering wheel. It is a constant hum while driving, until I get up to about 60. I checked the power steering fluid, It was empty so I filled it up.
I would go back to the oil change place. Fluid levels are their responsibility and you should have a trail of fluid from the leak. If you had no problems before the oil change and immediately after you have problems, then they are the people to tal ... Buick LeSabre

Chevy Cobalt 2008 - Key will turn in ignition but doesnt start the engine. I cannot remove the key, nor turn the stearing wheel or change gears from park to nuetral. The lights on my car were all on, my battery was NOT dead prior to this happening. The battery died because my key is stuck in ignition. When I would turn the key to start the engine, the display would show a car with a lock and the transmission light. It would aslo make an odd clicking noise. Similar noise as the blinker

Just replaced the crank sensor on my chrysler cirrus 1996. the factory alarm reset itself. i had previously turned it off. cut the volume wire so lights just blink and makes clinking noise. i can start the car by pressing the button under the steering column, however even when the car is running, the alarm continues to go off. tried the passenger door side trick and the key fob no longer works.

Thats not a factory alarm that aftermarket. go under the steering column and remove the whole alarm set up. or better yet find a relay that is attach to the starter signal (match the color) and restore how it used to be then you should be able to cra ... 1996 Chrysler Cirrus

Started up my car and check engine light turned on. Drove down the road and got curious and decided to shut it off and try to start it back up. When I try to start it back up it would not turn over... it did not make any noise when I turned the key. I tried this about four times before it cranked and started up. I drove directly home and shut it off and it started right back up but the service engine soon light still stayed on the whole time.

My car is starting to make a squeaky noise and shudder a little when turning the steering wheel while stationery (ie pulling out of a park etc) I feel a shudder in the steering column when turning at slow speeds. Feels like wheels or joint. I just had head gaskets replaced and when I took it back in they found a throttle cable routed wrong and rerouted. I am still having same problem. Car is a 2000 Subaru Outback.
They supposedly checked all fluids but said that replacing the pump might be the solution. They removed a bracket as noted in a TSB on similiar problem which helped for a day but still having the shudder when turning at slow speeds. \015\012 ... 2000 Subaru Outback

I drove my 2005 Ford Focus home and turned off my car and the alarm started going off, and the red light beneath my steering wheel started flashing rapidly. I no longer have a remote for the alarm, and can find no way to turn it off. In addition, I am now unable to start my car. The radio and a/c will turn on, but I get no response from the engine.
Sounds like you have a gold remote start in your vehicle as that red light would have to be installed with the unit. If it is still installed but you just lost the remote that is ok. If you look underneath in the drivers foot area there should be a ... 2005 Ford Focus

My Saturn L200 is making a loud fan noise when I start it and stays on until I turn the car off.

My car doesn't turn over when I try to start it; the battery and alternator are fine and I just put a new starter in it as well. For about a week when it wouldn't start I would wait for about 3 minutes and try again and it would be fine, now it won't start at all. Moving the steering wheel seems to have no effect. There is no noise when I try to turn it on (no clicking or grinding). Everything else in the car still works, such as radio, air, and lights.
There's a starter solenoid in the steering column that's gone bad. Replace it. This happened to me also. Now it starts every time! ... 1997 Chevrolet Lumina
Can you bleed the air from the power steering system on a 99 malibu? The unit was making a lot of noise so I changed it with one I pulled at a junkyard. After starting the car and turning the steering wheel back and forth several times, the fluid in the power steering reservoir looked like coffee with cream. It still whines when I turn the wheel. Any idea whats going on and how I might fix this?
Yes you can, make sure fluid in power steering is full. jack up car and move steering from left to right, til it hits wheel stops. keep checking fluid level. when bleeding air from system, raise idle to about 1500 rpms. then turn wheel left to rig ... 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
