There is a very good chance it could be your water pump. i would look at the heater core first though because its alot easier to get to.

98 Dodge Dakota Sport -- Blinkers do not work, but Hazards do. They have a mind of their own... SOMETIMES they work for a few turns. Fuses and relays are fine. Believe it may be the turn signal switch, but wipers still work--is this possible? Have also been told it could be a broken wire, but believe they wouldn't work at all if this was the issue. Also heard a faulty computer signal could be the problem, but when I first started having the issue, a loud continuous clicking noise could be heard

I just recently bought a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan and the lowlights on it are not working. The high beam lights work, but the lowlights will not come on. I checked the fuses, as well as the relay, and they do not seem to be the problem. We also did the obvious and replaced the bulb. It still does not work. Does anyone have any other possible reasons as to why the low lights do not work? Could it be a faulty switch on my panel? Please Help!!

Hello sir, i was wondering if you could possibly help me out also would help me. i have a jeep rubicon 2003 the check engine light came on and i bought a new gas cap from autozone and it seemed to work for a little while but now its back and i have problem codes p 0122, p 0442, anp p 0455 please help


My best advice to you would be to have the codes erased and see if they return. It seems as though you have a TPS, small leak, and a gross(large) leak. The large leak can be triggered by fueling while the vehicle is left running. The small could be r ... Jeep Wrangler

I just replaced the engine on a 93 pickup 4 cyl 2wd when I test drove the truck everything ran great (about 5 mi) until I pulled in the driveway. Without any warning the trans flat out quit working. I HAVE NO LEAKS, Trans is full of fluid. Could this be a vacume line or possibly a dirty filter caused by the new fluid. I also thought it may be a bad pump. I sure could use some help before I have to pull the transmission.


Just an idea, are the tourque converter bolts still there? ... 1993 Nissan Pickup

1995 cutlass supreme head gasked replacement. Chilton's is pretty vauge on details. Never done this before (6 cylinder 3.1). Only on a 4 cylinder 2.2. Chiton's instructs to remove engine struts and to rotate the engine and I don't have and engine hoist. Is it possible to get around this. Also any tips on radiator replacement would be great. Is it possible it could just be the radiator and the head and headgaskets are fine? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I just had my car serviced at a garage and now my air conditioning doesn't work. They changed the oil/filter, transmission fluid/gasket, coolant drain/new coolant, and cabin/air conditioning filter. They stated I needed a new serpine belt so I told them to replace that. What could they have possibly messed up to cause the air conditioner to stop working (the light blinks when AC button is depressed)? Thanks for the help.


Maybe the refrigerant charge of r134a is low on pressure. Have that checked. I hope that the air conditioning tubing wasn't disturbed when all of that service was performed.\015\012\015\012It really shouldn't have affected the a/c if they ... 2002 Toyota Camry

Transmission i have had the check engine on for a while and when i got the code read at my local auto zone they told me it was a silenoid inside the transmission, i cant find it i dont know what im lookin for, and mainly what my car does is that it kinda jerks when im stopped, i also have another code and it tells me its a large gas leak, i alredy replaced the gas cap. it wont pass smog, ive done and looked at everything that i can possibly look at. help!!!!!


From the sounds of things you don't really know what your doing. I would advise you to take it to a mechanic but not a dealership. The large fuel leak has to do with the venting system for the gas tank, something in there isn't sealing properly anymo ... 2003 Dodge Durango
