Drivers side windshield will not defrost and I smell coolant when I have the heat or defrosters turned on. I am thinking it is a leaking heater core but there is no evidence of the "leak" anywhere inside or under the hood. I know the air flow vents on these pickups are known to break, could this possible be the case or is it the heater core? Thanks.
How much should I pay for a new SRX? Thank you
I got a recall notice for my 1995 FORD Explorer? What is this all about? Is it a true problem or a government implant of a vehicle control mechanism? Signed: Still a "free" American Gal.
My 2007 Subaru Outback is due for a 30,000 mile service package suggested by the dealership from which I bought it. The cost is over $450, and I am unsure about whether this is necessary, or if there are cheaper options to keeping the car in good health? Many thanks.
I have a 2006 ford Taurus and it cranks forever before it starts, and it jumps around when it is idle. What could be wrong?
Loosing coolant in my 98 plymouth neon. Radiator and thermostat is new. Hoses look good. Hissing coming from housing where thermostat is and maybe a little bit of a leak from the bottom there. Today the car was blowing cool air which turned to hot but then went cool again. Gage stayed in the normal range but was a bit higher than usual.
