My car runs great and shows I have 14 watts but when I have the heat running and am at a stop light it drops to almost 9 on the gauge. And when I hit the rear defrost the lights on the dash get dimmer. Is my car battery going bad? I put a new alternator in a year ago. Starts ok but the dash gets dim when i'm at... show more

How much to fix head gasket?

Best answer: Don’t buy it. If the head gasket went, it’s most likely because the water pump impeller eroded and the engine over-heated repeatedly. Along with the head gasket and water pump, you’ll have to do both exhaust manifolds. If they haven’t started leaking yet, they will soon. The front cats also develop holes on top... show more

There's a weird kind of whirring noise along side me turning it over, but that's it. It does not start. I'm thinkin' Fuel Pump. There's lights, dings, and power to the windows. I'm pretty sure it's not the battery or the altenator. No bad smells. No smoke. No alarming noises. No... show more

Best answer: This is easy. The light comes on at a certain mileage to remind you to check the oil and filter and change them. Why don't you wait for the light before doing the oil change and stop wasting oil? Read your owner's manual.

In a multi unit carburetor, what would cause one slide to close quicker than the other? I would assume the diaphragms are messed up but they seem perfectly fine and sealing. Do I need a new carb?

The wire connected too the black rectangular box is an after market car alarm. I'm referring to the wires that go above the headliner. Thank you.

I have a 2000 Lexus RX300 with 246k miles. She runs perfect when I wait a while to warm the engine up but if I don't give the car at least 4-5 minutes to idle it'll drive like sh*t. Dim lights(at night), rough shifting, slow acceleration, lower gas mileage(5-8 mpg lower) and a louder engine until its a... show more


It happened recently last week and happened twice this week and I'm really confused to why my car shakes when it turns on. It doesn't shake while driving or anything like that just only in the few 2-3 seconds when it first turns on. Obviously other than the engine starting. I have a 2012 BMW if that makes... show more
