When you removed the old battery and installed the new one, you effectively reset your Check Engine Light-until the fault (I assume it was a fault for the O2 sensor) reset. A new O2 sensor, installed should run you somewhere in the neighborhood of $ ... 2002 Ford Taurus

A year ago I had the valve cover gasket fixed on my 2002 focus wagon as it was leaking-months later I took my car in for knocking in the right front and at that time the dealer said the valve cover was leaking again. They said they tightened it and it was okay, but the oil pan gasket was leaking. I fixed the oil pan gasket and now the valve cover needs to be done again. It seems that there must be something causing the leaks if they keep happening. I would like to fix the valve cover gasket, but
I would just try puting new gaskets in where it is leaking ... 1984 Ford F 150
Rattly noise I recently started having problems with my 1996 ford taurus. Sometimes when I step on the gas it will make a rattly noise and it has less power. When I take my foot off the gas, it stops. Sometimes when I start my car there will be some blue smoke out the tail pipe. sometimes it does this when I'm driving and I get the rattly sound but not always. I did have an oil leak by the oil pan fixed a few weeks ago. This started just before the oil leak was fixed, but hasnt gone away. I've t

Gas leaks out of the bottom, but only when I gas up. It doesn't leak at any other time, but it is preventing me from putting gas in the car. I took it to a named brand mechanic shop close to my home today, and they diagnosed a $1,000.00 repair; replace the tank, fuel pump, etc. Is all that necessary, or could there be a much simple, less expensive fix?

My 2001 Hundai Sonata (4 cyl) either idles very roughly or dies when idling or when I am stopped at a stoplight or stop sign or in traffic.

OK!.... it's got more than 185.xxx miles.. right? (out of warranty). FIRST place to check:\0121. TPS - Throttle Position Sensor - it's a potentiometer (variable resistor) which sends voltage signals to the ECU (Engine Control Unit). If it is ... 2001 Hyundai Sonata

My car recently got checked and apparently my transmission fluid has a leak. I don't have money to fix it right now. My question is is it too dangerous to keep driving until I can fix it and would a strong burnt smell that comes out from the car after driving be caused by these leaks or do I have more issues?
I would say that it is ok to drive, but keep tranny fluid up where it belongs. if low on fluid the tranny may start slipping in gear. the smell may be tranny fluid on hot engine. if it leaks a lot do not drive it. if it leaks a little just keep f ... Mercedes-Benz 300-Class
