0ur 1993 Ford Van heater/ac fan will only work on high level. We replaced the switch and fan motor. It still does the very same thing like we had done nothing to it. Afraid to spend more money in the wrong direction. Do you have any advice?
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
