Did you burp the system by removing the cap and turning the wheel from lock to lock, back and forth? You could use a turkey baster to pull some of the fluid out of the reservoir to make it easier, then top it back off. I hate to say it, but if none ... 1990 Nissan 300ZX

2001 montero sport 3.0 automatic. the car start and run fine and normal but during driving on idle (like looking to park the car) sometimes the rpm will go down and it look like is going to die, first it will shake,or choked, vibrate and rpm will go below 500 and then it kick in to normal. the same thing when you are on the stop light waiting for the green light but not all the time maybe 5 out of ten you stop. the car has no check engine light or any warning or yellow, red light. sometime the

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer XLT (4.0 EFI 2WD) and it needs a new instrument panel...but I like how the 2002 Explorer Sport Trac panel looks like (you know the white one). If I put the 02 panel in my truck, will it work???

Instrument panel hi... i just bought a 1997 mr2. whenever i take it a little faster than normal road speed... an orange light comes on in my instrument panel that looks like a transmission.... however, whenever i check the gauges before i start the engine... there are two different transmission lights... one is in red with i think a plywheel attached... while the one that comes on is an orange light with without the plywheel pic... what does it indicate?

Where is the fuel reset button on my 2004 chev aveo? My car just stalled for no reason. it felt like my engine fell out of my car and then stalled. So my dad took a look at it and thought maybe I might need to press the restart button for my fuel. I try starting it but it sounds like to fuel just isnt getting through.


There is no fuel reset button. No way to tell why it stalled unless you can determine you are getting spark. If you are then it could be a fuel pump issue but its just a guess without testing first. You wont be able to do anything. Sorry to tell yo ... 2004 Chevrolet Aveo

1999 Mercury Cougar with automatic transmission, car was running fine, then it wanted to shift while driving, and the speedometer dropped to 0, with jerky motions. Same thing 3 years ago and dealer said they replaced the instrument cluster for $700. Doing research, doesn't look like that could have been the problem. Can you tell me what to look for? Possible speed sensor or transmission range sensor?


ONe thing to check is that your throttle position sensor (TPS) is working as it should and that the electrical connections to it are clean and tight and that wires associated with it are intact. When your TPS starts misbehaving by sending the wrong ... 1999 Mercury Cougar

Might be a dirty IAC idle air control valve. When starting up and it is struggling to idle does the car have a tendency to cut out if for example you turn the front wheels or put a foot on the brakes. If so, this looks like an IAC problem. General ... 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

My brother in law just changed my belt in my ford windstar. My air conditioning isnt working now, it only blows cold air from the windshield area fans, not in the front. Where is my air conditioning located under my hood? Is there a hose to look for incase he disconnected it? Is there something else to look for? I also noticed my interior clock was wrong, like my battery had been disconnected but he hadnt messed with the battery.

Chrysler 300 My car not long ago would shake and the engine light would come on. I had a tune up and it seemed to stop. After looking at this website, it looks like it was the 02 sensor. This morning, I tried to crank it up and it turned over but never engaged. I tried again. A small circular red light (that is not identified in the manual) on the instrument panal came on and it will do nothing. The red light comes on each time I tried. Also, the remote key will not work. Which is odd. Is the re
