Your manifold eas just replaced last mo a new alternator and belt the car is still overheating only 81000 miles any help would be appreciated you have a mechanic you hope he is being honest cheryl?
Answer . Overheating is usually a simple problem for a competent mechanic to find and repair. It is usally one of a couple problems: Thermostat, blocked radiator, water pum…p, temperature "riser" or the timing is waaaay off. The car wouldn't be running very well if it's the timing, so I doubt that one. One way to determine if the problem is the thermostat, remove the thermostat and see if the vehicle runs cold. With the thermostat removed and the engine running, remove the radiator cap and see if the water is flowing rapidly through the radiator. If not, you either have a partially blocked radiator or a damaged waterpump. The temperature "riser" is a mechanism that allows exhaust gasses to flow across a passage through the intake manifold to pre-warm the air being drawn into the engine and to cause quicker "warm-up". If the temperature riser is stuck in the open position, you could need an intake manifold, but that's quite rare. In any case, a good mechanic should be able to find the problem through responsible diagnostic methods. Incompetent mechanics just replace parts until the problem goes away.
Why would a rebuilt 1997 Ford Taurus wagon transmission only last for 35000 miles The car has 134000 miles The rebuilt put in at 110000?
Answer . In most cases, either dirt in the coolant lines or transmition cooler portion of the radiator caused a premature failure, or the torgue converter was failing or d…irty and not replaced when the transmition was rebuilt are the causes. In some rare occastions, the rebuild was not done properly or parts that should have been replaced and where not replaced is the cause. The only other option is that the computer or wiring harness to the transmition is failing or damaged, as the shifting of the transmition from gear to gear is controled by the computer. This can cause a pre-mature failure. The only other cause would be right out of the gun, so your situation doesn't sound likely, is the shop forgot to re-fill the transmition with ATF "Fluid". This sounds crazy, but it's far too easy to do, but the transmition usually won't even move the car at that point, so it is usually caught right away not by the owner some 40K miles later.
Answer . It could be a front seal, in which case you'll need to hae the transmission removed to replace the seal. It could be an axle shaft seal, which isn't quite as bad …but requres that the leaking half-shaft be removed to replace the seal. It could be a coolant line, which should be quite easy. Or it could be just the pan gasket, which can probably be resolved if you'll climb under and tighten it a little, but don't go too far or you'll cause more problems.
Are there only specific Throttle Positioning Sensors compatible with a 2000 Ford Focus SE Wagon or can any brand replace the defected one in the car?
Whatever parts store you go to will look up the part according to year, make, engine, and model of the car. Whatever brand they list that applies to that vehicle will be fine.… Most electronic parts are only made by a handful of companies, and they just put in different boxes according to who is going to sell the part anyway. Even Ford doesn't use parts made by Ford. The parts manufacturing is contracted out to this same handful of companies that is also supplying everybody else with parts. It's possible that when you get your TPS and open the box, it may have "Ford" stamped on it, even though it may be in an aftermarket box.
You have had your 03 jeep wrang Sahara alligned 2 times and your right front tire 32-1050 bf goodyear all-terrains with only 1000 miles are wearing really bad on the outer edges any ideas.?
have a complete front-end inspection done. It is possibly a worn ball-joint or tie-rod. Take it to a shop that specializes in front ends. . Either the camber spec. is out or …the toe spec. is out. probably the camber if its only the r/f. Try another alignment shop that will actually let you watch and/or will give you a printout of the before and after measurements . -I didnt want to delete the whole answer so Im adding my comments here. You are most likely running too low air pressure.. Wranglers have a solid front axle, so unless it's been wrecked the camber cannot be off. Toe may have an effect but if it's been aligned it should be fine. Big tires like 32's are meant for off-road and the compounds are soft. They wear quickly on the road b/c they were desinged for mud and dirt. Also, they were designed to run lower air pressures..off road. When you are on pavement you must run higher pressures. Go to 4x4 forums to get advice on the pressures.

1993 mr2 na has over 200k miles on its engine and the engine keeps squealing you think its the alternator belt but that just got replaced and it only squeals when i accelerate any ideas on how to fix?
many bad mechanics will put belts on tighter than specs or even ignoring specs thinking that a new belt should stretch which is wrong. Take your mr2 back to them, what you are… hearing is the bearings in your alternator screaming bloody murder and from now on only take your mr2 to someone who is experienced with the Toyota mr2, it is an easy car for bad mechanics to screw up
Car has sevee growl when coming to a stop more notable with ac on ac also has a slight vibration any ideas car has only 40K orig miles and is mint?
Possible problem with a/c compressor bearings, because as you are coming to a stop, engine rpms are reducing. You hear the growling because of less engine noise.

Toyota Highlander check engine light on my car has 37000 miles replaced air filter and PCV valve on 51508?

My Toyota Highlander check engine light on my car has 37000 miles replaced air filter and PCV valve on 51508 what is the problem with the car?
The "check engine" light is not solely dedicated to the air filter and pcv valve. There are other things that can cause this caution light to illuminate on the dashboard. Assu…ming you bought this car new and that it has but 37k miles on it, it's most likely still in warranty and Toyota should be fixing this problem for you.

Depends on the driver and how the car was treated. It's possible.

Ideally, you should at least replace both front or rear tires simultaneously, but you can get away with only replacing one if the difference between the tires isn't too great.…
