Do I need to have road debris cleaned around the brake pads? I have about 30,000 miles on my car.
My Pontiac Vibe front driver side brakes will not release when letting off the pedal! I already put new brakes and new brake calipers. What else could be the problem?
I was told my tires were dry-cracked. What does that mean?
I went to the dealership for winter tire removal & was told that I should replace my front brake (only 10% left). Also that I should have the back brake washed (has 80% left). I know I must replace the front brake (about $500), but what about the washing? Is that necessary?
How much fluid is in the transmission ? We have been having problems with the transmission for the last 3 weeks. The car will shift in all gears but when we go up a slight incline the car will shift down into 3rd gear but will not shift into high gear. What is happening?
I'm looking at this make and model vehicle to buy used for $12,000. Has there been any problems listed with this car that I should have a mechanic check out first?
Where is the ETS sensor located on this vehicle? The ETS "Check Engine" light came on 3 days ago and the gears seem to shift hard and change from 1st to 2nd to 3rd and so on. It is an automatic transmission, the fluid is clean and I have never had any problems with the transmission. Is it possible that the ETS sensor would cause this hard shifting?
