My 1991 Honda recently started to shut off while driving and when I try to start it the car makes sound like it is going to start but does not. I noticed the first light that went on was check engine light and immediately after all the lights go on. Please can you tell me what may be the issue?
Hello, I am inquiring about my 2007 Chevy Cobalt.

The electrical in the car has been acting strange. The power locks go up and down on their own, and the rear view and side view mirrors power don't work anymore (I have to do it manually with my hand). the check engine light keeps coming on periodically, my heater and air condition only work sometimes ...

I'm replacing the timing belt. I took head off make sure wasn't warped or no damage, but when I put it back on, I forgot to line up the timing marks. Is it okay if I turn it while it's on the motor or do I need to take it back off?
Red light is flashing on dash near front window. What is the car telling me? It is not the 'check engine lite'.
I am seeing steam from the dash and am having an overheating problem. What could be causing this?
I have a 99 dodge Straus I have two lights./1 light tells me I'm out of fuel 2 the other one is blinking like a gas pump what is wrong I just fill it up gas.
My 1992 Honda Accord starts but will not go, like the brakes are severely stuck. It's standard transmission and recently we had to go in very high water!! What could it be ???
