I have a 2018 Malibu LT. I live in the metro Detroit area and am a Tigers fan. Their radio broadcast station is WXYT-FM, 97.1. I cannot receive it on my car radio. When I tune to 97.1, I get some unknown talk show. I can get the Tiger games on all my home radios; what’s going on? I miss hearing the games when I’m driving? Please help.

I have a 2002 Subaru Legacy with 181,000 miles. The transmission is a rebuild, and the car is not accelerating. When the A/C is running, the car will stall while idling. It also blows air even when the fan is not actively on. The 'Check Engine' light is on and flashing. I want to get an idea of what I am looking at before I take it to a mechanic ...

So i used the in dash code reader feature that the jeeps have where you turn your ignition on 3 times quickly and if theres a code it will show.

please my engine is excessively overheating, the water pump and the fan is working and head gasket has just been replaced only for less than 4 days. what could be the possible cause. the engine smoke is blue what is that. finally would you recommend that i replace the engine with a used engine?

I just replaced my radiator fans but before that my fans were hooked up to the fuse box so the mechanic unhooked them and supposedly ran the wire correctly. But now since the fans are replaced my vehicle is cutting off while driving. Could the code P034 be the reason why my vehicle is cutting off or could it be something else?

I had my battery cable replaced yesterday. Driving home from work last night it was overheating did not see smoke but Gage went to high and when I stopped it would go down. It has never over heated. They spliced the battery cable and ran great. Know engine light comes on and it goes to hot What do you think happened with the battery cable fix??t on ...

Car overheating right after battery cable sliced and repaired.When I turn the car off an get out of it I hear a fan going under the hood? Never had this problem before HELP! Thanks Kathy
