  • I have a 92 Audi 100. This car has been running pretty good for the most part. Suddendly the fail safe mode came on and it keeps blowing the #14 fuse.
    Could you please help with this problem?
  • Distributor cap rotor on 1997 Nissan Sentra is frozen. Securing screw is removed, but rotor will not pull off. Don't want to get frustrated at such a simple thing and try to pry or hit it and create damage. Will heating up the engine entirely be of help? Any other tricks because this is ridiculous?

    Hey Jorgec, hope you are getting some help in the synthetic oil discussion. I don't see a Riviera discussion - you may want to try the Electronic Gremlins: Electrical Problems That Are Driving You Crazy discussion in case there's a wiring or sensor problem.

    I'm thinking the same Got a Quick, Technical Question? discussion for the frozen cap; try a search over in Nissan Sentra too, in case it's a recurring problem.

    You could ask Sentra owner and host Pf_Flyer for help, but he tends to grab the BIG hammer. ;)

  • 177,000 miles, bought it used in March 06' Do not know if it has ever had a trans flush, nor do I know if it has had a timing belt replaced... Here is the problem, when It is shifting it seems to hesitate, then it will almost jerk, then go into the next gear and will continue to run fine as long as I'm driving, but if I have to stop, and then resume it will do that each time it has to shift gears??? Help!! :cry:

    Check the Honda Accord group for relevant topics. You should also have a look at Transmission Traumas?.

  • Hi- Does anyone have a PDF manual for a 1993 Rodeo 3.2L V6 4x4?

    I want to change the timing chain on my "new" used vehicle. If not a pdf file how about a schematic of the front and removal/installation guidelines for the timing belt? Any help would be appreciated.

  • I need information on how to install a 93 Ford Escort radiator. Here are the complications/problems that most auto part store can't give me answers to my 93ford radiator installation:

    1. the connector 'from the fan/motor' on the radiator is missing.

    2. I do not know where "radiator fan/motor should be connected to 'on the engine or other area'(it looks like the previous owner 'jigger' a wire to the battery to run the fan on the radiator).

    3. there is a open '6 (small)hole/female" connection with nothing connected to it..on the 'passenger side' of the 'front' right side of the engine.

    4. the dealer (not much help either)that there are 3 different types of ways the radiator can be connected to a 93 ford escort! a. above the back left(drv side) ? >>not sure on the other 2.

    My car has a garetts T25 Turbo and a heavy duty clutch on it. It is 3 years old. Whenever I floor it(or really get on) the gas, around 3.5 rpm where the turbo kicks in, my car briefly looses power in a big THUD that shakes the car. It does it in 2, 3, and 4th the most. Does anyone have an idea if its the clutch or turbo?

  • My 2003 Expedition power adjustable foot pedals don't move anymore. Since the fuse that controls it controls the seat, and the seat moves, I'm thinking a relay. Any suggestions on how to find the problem. I can hear the click when I push the button, but no movement
  • patpat Posts: 10,421
    Have a look at the Ford Expedition group. You can post in the Expedition Maintenance and Repair discussion, or you can create your own if you'd like. The Add Discussion link is on the right just over the discussion list.

    Hi,

    I was not sure where to post this message. We are buying a Honda Odyssey and got a great price quoted. Everything seems okay with the deal (the price is about 1K under invoice). Anyway, the dealer called today and asked if I was worried about the mileage on the car when we picked it up. He says it should have less than 150 miles on it and the reason is because he has to drive it over from another dealership. He said the new car warranty would extend the extra 150 miles (36,0000 plus the mileage when we picked it up). I am also worried the driver might abuse the car on the trip. Does this sould right? Should we worry? What is the maximum mileage for a car to be considered new?

    We actually have to drive to the Bay Area (about 3-1/2 hours) to pick up the vehicle. And this is a rather expensive purchase!
  • tidestertidester Posts: 10,110
    You can discuss that with other Odyssey owners in Honda Odyssey 2005+.

    Our local Toyota dealer did some repairs. Now they say we need additional repairs, etc.

    I'd like to post a specific question because I need some help negotiating with the dealer to bring down the repair costs. Where do I post it? Thanks.

    Also, if it helps, it is mostly about the power steering system, but also involves the valve cover gaskets, timing belts, etc.

    Sorry, I saw this after already posting in a forum, but...

    Where might I get help finding a what a reasonable (or unreasonable offer) for a used car would be, namely a BMW 325i or Acura TSX. Looking through the "price and experiences" threads seem geared toward new cars.

    Thanks!

    Try posting a description of the cars in question here:
    Real-World Trade-In Values

    We have a couple of experts in used car values there. Once you know what a dealer has in the car, you can extrapolate a fair price to pay.

  • I have noticed that frequently (especially when first starting to drive) my display will indicate that I am either charging the battery or just using the battery. However, instead of reading 99MPG it shows a low number corresponding to what it would be if running just on the gas engine. I don't see this as much after a while. Is the display wrong and the gas engine is actually running or is this a software error on the MPG reading? If a software error, then the average MPG readings may be way off if you mostly do short drives (to/from work) and are mostly running on battery. Any comments on this?

    Since you didn't mention what car you are driving, try going to the Browse By Vehicle search box on the left sidebar, and enter your make/model in the form and hit Go. All the discussions relating to your car will be listed.

    Pick a likely discussion and post your MPG display question there.

  • My husband's truck started to make a howling noise rececently upon going 30 mph and above. He thought it was the transmission, so it had the fluid changed. Still noisy. Since we've done may repairs to keep this old truck going, we're afraid it's more serious this time. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 40,805
    That's a puzzle - I'd go to the Ranger Group and look through one of the discussions listed there - there's a transmission and general problems discussion that would be places to start.
