Why does the driver's side front wheel squeak when you're driving and immediately stop when you brake?
Because your brakes, when applied, "straiten" the rotor (disk) from a cockeyed angle. To put it simply, your wheel bearings are worn and while driving, the rotor, wheel and tire are at a slight angle. The "wear indicators" (a small piece of metal attached to the pads on the top) built into the brake pads are temporarily rubbing against the rotor. When you apply the brake, it temporarily returns the group back to where is should be as if it were...

How is a blown head gasket caused?
A blown head gasket is usually caused by over filling the oil during an oil change, or just the opposite not having enough oil to compensate the pressure status, therefor causing exstreme overheating which in turn will cause many problems other than just a blown gasket. ie; engine locks up, overheats ,and then is all around just needs replacing. Once you've blown your engine you basically have hit bottom. Hope this helps. It can also be caused by detonation. Especially if you...

My 2001 Honda Accord's check engine light blinks 5 times when car is being started. What does this mean?
In my experience, this means that when you got your car serviced last the technician did not reset the mileage for your next service. You can expect the check engine light to stay on permanently after a few more miles. The car thinks that you're way over your scheduled mileage for service. Just let your technician know this next time you service your car to make sure they reset the mileage. ...
Where is the tvv valve on a 1997 Toyota Corolla?
On my 1995 Corolla, it is on the back side of the EVAP unit, which is attached to the left (driver side) of the engine block. Another way to locate it is by following the thin vacuum line from the charcoal cannister at the left rear of the engine compartment, this line enters the TVV (Thermal Vacuum Valve) that extends out of the EVAP unit. Perhaps the 97 is setup the same way, but I'm not certain. ...
