My car starts after a few click sounds. takes almost 10-15 mins for a cold start. But after that i have no problems for the whole day. I have a doubt that my new battery is not good and think should ask te dealer to replace it. But the dealer in turn has said that its not the battery but the starter, and i don't believe him for sure. Please advise if its the battery or do i really need to replace the starter.

Recently my 2006 Nissan Ultima would not start. Triple A (AAA) came out to take a look at it and determined it wasn't the battery or the starter. He said there may be a clog in the fuel tank. After banging on the gas tank for a bit the car still would not start. I went to Auto Zone and bought B-12 CHemtool for fuel treatment. After using the fuel treatment my car started right up. Is this a problem I need to continue to be concerned about? Is replacing the fuel unit needed? Please advise.

We took our 05 equinox to the shop for rear wheel bearing replacements, the owner of the shop called and said the center carrier bearing was really really bad and he could replace it. We said ok to the agreed amount, he said he would have to take it to another shop to get it off but the shop couldn't do it and that he would have to order a new one and be delayed another day. Today he called and said we need a new drive shaft for $1100.00 as a result of the attempted carrier bearing replacement
That work should ONLY be done by a \015\012Drive Shaft Specialty Shop ,that repairs\015\012& balances lots of things,not just driveshafts\015\012\015\012I will agree with you, as I don't know\015\012\015\012But a d ... 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
We were told by our Toyota dealer that our 2002 Prius battery failed and needed replacement ($3000). They then said the new one was leaking, caused by some electronics in the transmission. Next they said they replaced the transmission with a new one at no additional charge and said all is well. However, the $3000 bill only says that they replaced the transmission with a used one, nothing about the battery and verbally said the "new" battery has a one year warranty-- what gives?

My jeep is heating up to about 235-240 after about 10 minutes of driving with A/C on. It usally takes about 30 minutes or more to heat up without the A/C on. I have replaced the fan clutch and thermostat because mechanic said they were bad. Problem not fixed. I replaced the radiator cap and problem not fixed. One mechanic told me I have a clogged radiator and another told me to replace the fan relay. He said the fan was staying on low and kicking into high. This is why My a/c is not as cold as i

I just purchased a 2003 Buick Century (one owner car) and the right front turn signal lamp went out, so replaced the bulb and it went out again a few hours later. What could cause this? My mechanic friend that replaced the bulb for me said it was a #3457 bulb in there, but when the auto parts store looked on the computer, it said it takes a #4157 bulb. I bought a 2 pack and like I said, the new bulb lasted only a few hours and it burned out again. I haven't tried the last bulb in the pack as

Can a faulty fuel filter affect the brain box of a car? My Toyota Carina II GLi has been jerking so I gave the mechanic who said I should replace the fuel pump and filter. I gave him the amount he requested. He later informed me that he replaced the parts but the vehicle was still jerking. He said that the elrctrician said the old fuel pump affected the brain box of the car. Is this true? I guess they want more money from me. Someone, please advise me

How do I replace my DRL light bulb? My dashboard console displays "Right Front Dipped Beam Defective". Looking at the front, it look like my DRL light bulb is burnt out. I need step by step with pictures on how to replace this bulb. After taking it into dealer, they said that I "may" have xenon lights and those bulbs are more expensive and they would have to take out the bumper to get at the housing unit to replace the bulb and "balance" the unit. Is this a crock or is he telling me the truth? I
Turn it counterclockwise as you fac it from the rear. It should rotate about 1/4 turn and then pull out. Usually there are 2 tabs about 1/4 inch wide & one a little wider so it goes back in right. Some use a plastic ring to hold the bulb in and ... 2006 Volkswagen Passat

What are the risk if I don't replace it etc.... Thanks so much... Toyota 2005 Corolla...

Went to get an oil change on my 2004 chrysler pacifica, but they refused to do it. they said that when they started to take out the drain plug it felt weird and that the thread was probably worn. do u have to replace the entire oil pan or can you just replace the plug. they did not even try to take it out because they didn't know if they would be able to get it back in.
You can buy a new oversize oil plug at any parts store and you do not have to replace the oil pan. They were scared they would be stuck for fixing it thinking it was stripped by someone else. cost's $7.00 ... 2004 Chrysler Pacifica
I have a 2002 volvo s60 and I had a serious oil leak less then 6 months ago. I took it to a volvo dealership and they apparently fixed everything. Recently I found evidence of my oil leaking again. They said the O rings near the turbo need to be replaced. I looked at my previous paperwork and it said O rings were replaced. How many O rings total are around my engine? I feel like they are taking advantage of me and they should fix it for free for not doing the job correctly the first time.

We have our 2004 Ford Explorer at the dealership due to cold start issues. They replaced all the plugs. We ended up taking it back for the same problems. They cleaned the throttle body and reset everything. They took it out for a test drive and it died on them. They said it was the catalytic converter. We replaced that. We went to pick it up and it will not start. We left it over night and they said it started up this morning. They think we have a bad fuel pump relay switch. Help! We don't want

The EVAP sensor went out in my 2008 Lincoln MKZ. The dealership wants over 500.00 to install the new part. So I ordered the part and my husband is going to fix it. The problem is that the dealership said you have to take the dash out to replace the part but wouldn't tell me where behind the dash the part went. My question is, where behind the dash this part is located and if there is anyway around taking the whole dash out to replace it? Thanks.
Is it evap or hvac sensor? evap sensors are located under the vehicle and in the engine compartment. HVAC sensors are located in the dash and on the HVAC box assembly. the dash has to come out to replace some of the hvac sensors depends on which sens ... Cars & Trucks
Silverado makes weird noise at 70 mph. Mechanic said it's the transfer case and also found a leak therein - wants $400 to take it apart to find the problem or we can just replace. Not sure what to do - pay to have them take it apart and find the problem or just replace the whole thing which they say will be about $2000.00. Has 140,000 miles.
Drain the transfer case about half way and pump it full of grease, then sell it. It will hide the noise, but your transfer case is screwed if you can hear it. ... 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
