My check engine light is on. Could this be a bad gas cap?
I drive a 2010 Mazda 3. My tire pressure light is on, I have had my 5000mile service done they checked the tires for leaks nothing! When I pulled away it did go off, but that day I was driving to San Diego from Phoenix and sure enough half way there it came back on. This was about a month ago an it's still on. I don't understand what the deal is? Any ideas? ...
My 1995 BMW 525i has twice failed pressure test during emissions inspection in AZ. My mechanic smoked the car 3 times and couldn't find anything wrong. Do you have any advice? Thanks!
My daughter just graduated from college and took a job about 60 miles from home. She plans to stay here in town and commute. She bought a nice used car with 30K on it. She expects to drive 25 - 30K per year. Should she consider selling the car after a year (with 60K) so it still has good value and buy another nice used car and repeat the process annually?
My 2004 Chrysler Sebring has a heater that takes forever to heat. The car has to be running for about seven minutes before it starts to get warm. It was looked at by a professional who said it is working just fine. Is this just a Sebring or Chrysler thing? My Honda Accord was very warm in a snap.
Hi Patty, I am looking for some information on the above type tires, do you have that size, if so how much do they run new and used? I am a recent widow and not accustomed to shopping for items like this. Your help would be appreciated. Thank you, Pam
My daughter has a 98 Ford Windstar that will not pass emissions no matter what we do. What can we do to make it pass?
