  • I have been trying to locate a repair manual for Mark VIII. There does not seem to be anything specifically for this model.

    Try posting this question in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid Engine Questions discussion. The HH owners posting there should be able to give you a hand.

  • I am having trouble finding information on the O-rings used on the high and low pressure pipe at the evaporator. I went to an auto parts store and ordered an O-ring set for the A\C system, when I picked up the O-ring set there wasn't any information on which O-rings went where. I bought a Chilton's book but that was a dead end. I disconnected the high & low pipes and found what looks like a wiper instead of a O-ring. I replaced the so called wiper with the identical part in the new O-ring set but it did't hold pressure. I am at a lose as what to do, Please help.

    I don't see an active L-Series repair discussion; try asking in Climate Control Problems (Air Conditioning, Heat) - All Cars.

  • I am unable to find the command to start a new discussion. I always have to post as a reply. Am I missing something? I have a very specific question about a Subaru and ended up posting it in the "Subaru Crew" topic as a reply because it has the most views...

    Thanks,
    Ben

    What you want to do is scan the discussion list to find the most appropriate discussion for your question so that you're asking it where that issue is being discussed.

    If you're looking for help with a specific problem, the Search Forums and Advanced search in the left sidebar can help you home in on things. For example, searching for "outback stalling" in the advanced search would get you to posts about that specific issue. Give it a shot!

  • What's up with all the photos we posted? All I get is the error, "this page cannot be whatever". :confuse:
  • Hi,
    I have a 2000 grand cherokee ltd with 4.7L v8. 4WD 94,000 miles. Over the past several months we have had recurring problems with it running very rough and sometimes cutting off. Here is the history.
    About 2 years ago replaced the fuel pump and filter.
    Recently started rough idle, up and down rpm when idling, whole car rocks side to side, sometimes cuts off. Also tends to have a hard shift from transmission from time to time.
    Took to mechanic - did fuel injector and throttle body cleaning and replaced spark plugs. Ran great a few days and problem returned.
    Took back to mechanic and he redid fuel injector and throttle body cleaning. Worked fine another week or two and problem started again.
    Took back to mechanic and he replaced the throttle control sensor. This worked for about 2 weeks. Then problem started again.
    This time took to Jeep Dealer. They replaced purge solenoid. This worked for about 1 month and problem has started again.
    :mad:
    Any ideas?

    I hate to keep dumping money into the jeep. It also needs front and rear pinion seals, transmission adapter seals, and cv boots. Need to decide to spend a little more to fix or trade it.
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 6,068
    Sounds like you need to post in the Jeep Grand Cherokee quits intermittently discussion

    There's been some server glitches today so that's probably why some photos aren't showing up for you.

  • I recently replaced the brake master cylinder on my 95 Ford Aerostar. Now the power assist doesn't work. Any idea what I missed when I put the new one in?
  • patpat Posts: 10,421
    One of the discussions in the Aerostar group should be a good place to ask. The general brake issues discussion in Maintenance & Repair might be helpful as well.
  • HELP! i am tired of not knowing what the mechanic is saying to me or if he's ripping me off. is there any book out there that will fill me in on the basics of a 2001 nissan pathfinder? or a class i could take to not feel so foolish? :confuse:
    thanks
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 6,068
    Best place to start would be to head to the Nissan Pathfinder Group and start picking the brains of the Pathfinder owners discussing their vehicles there.

  • Does this tool exist: Where I can put in the maximum price I can afford to pay for used vehicle and the tool tells me what used vehicles sell at that price (private party or dealership).

    I think that would end up offering me choices I never might have thought of otherwise and give me a sense of what I can shop for.

    Thanks for any help.
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,919
    If you go to the Used Car link at Edmunds.com, the first thing you'll see at the top is a Find Your Next Car link.

    It'll ask for a brand and zip code, but once you click through there's a place to put the price range you are interested in and it won't limit your search by make or model (unless you enter something in those search fields). It's through AutoTrader, an Edmunds partner.

    Once you decide on a car, check out the Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences board for real world deals.

  • i have a 1964 dyna-vision electronic engine analyzer in good working condition and would like to find out what it is worth and who might be interested in buying
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 6,068
    While we don;t allow buying and selling of itmes on the forums, you might want to post your question in the Got a Quick, Technical Question? discussion. A fair number of really handy folks and auto techs that post in that discussion might be able to give you some feedback on the value of it.

    Somebody is always collecting something! ;)

  • I'm looking for the best Front Hood Bug/Rock Deflector for my Lexus RX 300 on the market...all the ones on the Net I've seen so far do not come down far enough around the grill to prevent rock chips on the most exposed section of the hood.

    Thanks for your help!
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,919
    I'd ask for opinions in the Lexus RX 300 discussion. Check out Bug guards, protective bras & film too (maybe you'd like the film?).

  • why is it so hard to post? lets keep it simple guys????????????????
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 6,068
    You'll find that Add a Discussion link at the top at most of the boards here (the Maintenence & repair board being an exception) but in with the number of discussions we have, chances are that there's an existing discussion where your question would be appropriate.

    In general, you'll find that you get a better and faster response by placing your questions in an existing discussion rather than creating one that has to be discovered by other users.

    The search tools in the left sidebar can help you find existing discussions. Just choose the make and model using the Browse By Vehicle tool to find discussions about a specific vehicle for example.

    If it turns out that you have a topic for discussion that isn't covered under one of the existing discussions, by all means use the Add a Discussion link to start it up.

    If you have any questions, feel free to click my username or the username of any other host and we'll be happy to point you in the right direction.

  • Not sure where to post this but could use some advice. Dealer about 45-60 minutes away had the exact car in stock that I wanted so I made a trip there to take a look. Brought in my current car to trade in (I have about 6-8k in equity depending on value).

    Anyway, my main concern was getting an appraisal on my trade-in, since if they weren't going to offer me much I would keep the car, sell it for more on my own and come back.

    To make a long story short, after about 2 hours of haggling on trade in and car price, we can't come to a deal as they don't want to offer anything close to the KBB trade-in value, which is fine. I thank them for their time, and after going through the "wait, my GM wants to talk to you, etc." and them playing "hide the keys" we finally leave.

    Salesman calls back a week later, and basically says "we had your trade-in registration stapled to your paperwork and forgot to give it back to you. Can you come back down and get it?"

    Of course I don't buy this for a second, they intentionally kept it so I would have to come back (numerous other unsavory tactics when I was there earlier confirm this in my mind). I told them I needed it because I had people looking at the car that upcoming weekend (true) let alone if I get pulled over driving and told them to FedEx it to me, and they said they would. Of course, 2 weeks later I still don't have it. Do I have any recourse here? I am not going to spend 1.5-2 hours of my time and gas driving back there to get my registration back.

    Yikes - sounds like a story for Why don't dealers want to make money?
