Fuel Problems To whom it may concern: I have recently developed a problem with my fuel system. I purchased some fuel from a common place and come to find out that the fuel filter had obtained the water. I then replaced the filter and now it died again and would not start could it be that it might either be the electrical grounding out or could it be i need to drain the fuel tank and start with a new one and replace the filter again? any help with this situation would be much appreciated.

The ABS and Brake lights on my 2000 Silverado Z71 come on periodically. While I know there is no relationship with the fuel system and the braking system, these lights come on every time I have a rough start. I recently had the fuel pump changed and am still having some difficulty starting. Dealer said I may need to replace some fuel pressure regulator for an additional gazillion (dealer charges) dollars. I just find it odd that these lights only come on when there is a starting problem with t

I Still have valve train noise in my '99 Chrysler Concorde 3.2 after replacing the timing belt, water pump, and hydraulic tensioner piston. Could it be the idler? The noise is Not coming from any other belt-driven device as they have all been disconnected to test various systems. The idler may well need be replaced as it has about .020'' play but rolls smoothly with no load on it. The clattering noise happens about 600 to 1200 RPM. HELP!
Probably the idler, i change it when i install timing belts..could be a vavle tappet...carefull use a broom handle as a stetho to listen at the valve covers and the timing gear cover ... 1999 Chrysler Concorde

Driver side heated seats keep coming on when they want to, on my 2005 Chevy Suburban Z71. They get really hot. I have found that if you leave the base of the seat on the low seating then the back or lumbar will not come on for a while. I need help in finding a solution. It is a driving hazard. Almost 2 years ago I had them change out the switch so I don't feel that is the problem. Please help me. Blood Boiling

I've got a 2003 Hyundai Accent and I've been having problems with the front end. There's a lot of wobbling mainly coming from the passeneger side front tire. There's no noise associated with it. It's causing a bit of vibration and results in not a very smooth ride. I've taken it in to a couple of places. First place (dealership) said I needed new tie rods and to get my wheels balanced. Did that and the problem went away for a couple weeks. When it came back I took in to another garage and they s

Currently at a Suzuki dealership (over a week long) and I am told that the problem is a inferior oil filter was used and it broke up. The pieces went into the engine and they need to clean it out.

My o6 Corvette's crank pulley has moved forward. I was told the pin may have come loose or the bolt may be broken. A lot of Vette's have had this problem can I drive the car until it's fixed there is no noise and the only reason I noticed it was because the belts were riding forward on the tensioner pulley. Can I just have it tightened or will I need to get a new bolt and pulley.
The balance is bad it's self, no pin no broken bolt. I wouldn't drive on it. The belts will have lots of extra wear and may brake. This is not a job that can be done in your drive way. The craddle needs to come down to move the steering rack to b ... 2006 Chevrolet Corvette
