I have a 2002 Passat. Recently, after a heavy rain, there was substantial flooding in the floor on the driver's side. None of the electrical buttons worked, the hazard lights were frozen on, and no matter how much we mopped out the water, there would be another inch of it within an hour. Apparently, water came through the pollen filter seal into the car ...
I took my car into the dealership to get the "check engine" light figured out. I was told I would need to replace the catalytic converter. I was suggested to take it to another place where it would be cheaper to replace. I took it to Midas and was told the problem was not the catalytic converter but the oxygen sensors. Who should I trust?
My windshield wipers no longer go back to starting point and my interval setting is also not working. I have a 2000 Toyota Avalon.
How much does it generally cost to have a wheel bearing replaced on a four door Honda sedan? (New bearing and installation). I think I'm being ripped off. Thanks!
I have a 1991 Toyota Celica that wants to stall whenever the weather is wet. The only way I can keep it running is to keep my engine raced a little. What could be the cause of this? Thanks (in advance), Susan
I have a Hyundai Tiburon that just turned over 30K miles. What exactly do I need to do for my routine maintenance ? Should I take it to a dealership or an independent repair center?
I'm trying to find a reputable Volvo repairman for my car. I don't like to take it to a dealership as they usually muck something up. If someone could recommend one in the Ann Arbor, MI area I would appreciate it.
