    Yesterday I went to my car Saturday afternoon. It cranked but did not start. I repeated a few times without success. Got a friend to come over to give me a boost. That did not work no matter which way we tried. Give up and call AAA. AAA shows up an hour later. We go to the car and it starts...

    Hey guys... My A/C started to act up a bit last summer. It would intermittently just not work; once you turned it off and on a few times, it would kick on. This summer it's worse, and the symptoms are different. If it's below 80 degrees outside, it will blow cool (not cold) until I come to a...

    I'd like to pay someone for their time (at least $60 an hour). I know there are many experts on this forum, but who understandably don't have the time to be giving out free advice to every person asking for help. I'd be happy to pay for someone's advice, but as long as they are truly an...

    Ok, my POS 2000 GLX (V6) is falling apart. Had it looked at, at a non-dealer shop. Wanted to see if there are any how-to write ups on how to fix these. I can handle a wrench, but just need some guidance. Would rather do that than spend the $3k for the shop. Here's what the shop said what...

    Just thought I'd share my experiences over the past two days. I would notice coming out of 1st gear from a stop that as I would release the clutch around 1200 rpms, the car would stutter almost like the clutch suddenly engaged. It would last for a fraction of a second, so quick the rpms...
