    I have a 2001 mazda 626. Car has 70k miles everything working good. Daughter driving it when it threw the belt that turns power steering and air conditioner. Replaced it but now when you drive it will not shift to over drive and the overdrive light comes on and can not be reset until you turn the engine off. As soon as you get to the point where it should shift to overdrive the same thing happens again.

    Hello. I have a 2006 Toyota Camry XLE V-6, 3.o. The air coditioning indicator light is blinking, and when I have the heater going, the air conditioner or heater, goes in and out and creates a squuek in the belt. Can you give me a clue on what is happening? Does the air conditioning need servicing?
    Thank you.

    I have a ford escort zx2 1999, And has been a great car until now it idles hard when I'm stopped and now acts like it is not breathing when I stop. Yes I'm a girl and that is the best way to explain it. Also my engine like cam eon and they said I needed an oxygen censor, did that and the next day it came back on anf then they said gas cap, did that and two days later it came back on Any one have a clue? It has 113,00 miles and has had regular good maintenance done since I bought it with 42,00 miles. Thanks .

    I own a 2009 hyundai vera cruz. This year the car is having problems with providing heat on the passenger side. When the car is driving on the highway the heat blows cold both on the floor and through the glove box of all places. When the car comes to a stop and idles the heat seems to come back. I have had it into the dealership twice and both times they tell me it doesn't do if for them and everything checks out perfect with the computer diagnosis. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Getting desperate in these northeast winters.

    I have a 2010 dodge avenger SXT 2.4L , would the speed sensor on wheels cause the crank shaft sensor to fault out, my problem is when I drive my car and get it warmed up , it will act as if it wants to stall out like it's running out of gas , and will not accelerate at all. So I will turn off the ignition for a few minutes and then try it again, and it will run for a minute as if nothing ever happened , then it does it again!
    I used an OBD scanner and it's codes indicated four codes, three of them where pertaining to the crankshaft sensor and the odd one was the wheel speed sensor!
    I replaced the crankshaft sensor and it's doing the same thing and showing the same codes even after clearing them all more than once!
    I'm clueless to what is going on, if anyone knows what the problem could be , please let me know!
