I have a 2000 subaru forester, I bought it used in 2004 w/65,000 miles on it. The problems started about two years later, with the left wheel bearing just about gone and the right was following. We replaced the left wheel bearing and a week later the right. Then the left was going bad and the warranty was just about up....had the left replaced again. Than again in March had the right replaced again. Now four months later the darn thing is going bad again. I have never replaced any wheel bearings

So Emissionwiz: Follow up question - We took the car to an A/C service guy to recharge the system and he says it is fully charged. No need for a recharge. The A/C blows cold at idle and normal around town driving. Is it possible that the PCM is shutting off the compressor too early? Right now, the A/C shuts off when pulling a trailer on the slightest grade. I guess I have two questions: 1. What sensor does the PCM use to decide the engine is at 60% of full throttle? 2. Can I adj

I have a couple. I bought a 1998 to have as a second vehicle for child and dog transport. Upon driving for a little while I noticed a clunk when shifting to or from second (acceleration and stopping) that sounds like a transmission problem. It mainly happens once the car has run for several minutes or more. Also, it appears the used car dealer hid a problem with the cruise control from me. The right side cruise buttons on the wheel have broken from their plastic mounts. Can these be glued back o

High rpm (fast idle) when the engine is cold. Every morning start is around 1800rpm. No engine check light on. Nothing changed after decarbonising intake and brake booster line. Voltage and resistance of TPS, IAC, coolant temp sensor and MAF was checked by the manual and are OK. Could this be the ECM issue? When the engine has right temperature, it runs smooth and stay at 700rpm. Lexus ES300 1995, 141 000 miles, bought in Canada.

The indicator light that a door is open was on, even though I checked all the doors. I fiddled around with the driver door and found a recess with a white plastic/metal gear. I think it wraps around a metal "U" on the door frame to keep the door closed. Anyway, I pushed the plastic gear back with my finger and now it is stuck that way. The door won't close at all. I have tried locking and unlocking, restarting the car, and using a screw driver to try to get the white plastic gear to move fo

I just bought a used 2004 g35 coupe. The right headlights comes on but then goes out all the time. I went to infiniti and they stated that it could be the headlights themselves. I finally bought a new set of after market headlights. Once again the right side only, headlights turn on, but goes out again. I was told that it could be the ballast, but I just wanted to make sure.

I have a 2007 Saturn Ion with a power steering issue. The car only has 31,000 miles, but fell short by 14 days of the warranty. We contacted the dealer, they ran the vin # and said the vehicle was sold on a certain date.(We bought it used from another dealer) I have seen several other complaints on this, shouldn't there be a recall on this problem. I hear the part runs around $600 and labor around $400-$500. Anyone see a way around this expensive and well know problem?

I have a replacement rear bumper/fender (the plastic shell) for my '93 190e 2.0, but its different to the original - the right dimensions, but its one piece that fits right around from one wheel arch to the other. Problem is there;s 3 pieces to the original - main piece across the back (easily removed) and smaller sections just behind the wheels on each side. The brackets on the new shell are right where these two are sitting. So what I'm stuck with is, how to get these off safely, and, if I d

I have a 1999 blazer. It was making a roaring noise in the front end. Took it to a garage. They replaced the passenger side wheel bearings. This cost around $400.00 for parts and Labor. When I picked the car up from the garage the ABS light was now on. I drove around the block and came right back to the garage.

I have a 2002 SC430 problem with the alignment. The car has 50,000 miles on it and i bought it used at 46,000. For about 2-3 months the car was driving fine. The car now ALWAYS pulls pretty hard to the right, most often on side streets. The highway isn't as bad for some reason.
