I noticed the check engine light come on today while being on the parkway going over 55. It seems like being on parkways for long distances I would get the check engine light.

I took my 1998 Astro van in to have a/c looked at. They told me it was my a/c compressor and vacuum line. Well I would like to rebuild the a/c compressor. Would just replacing the o-rings and buying a shaft seal kit be good enough? I got a price on a remaufactured a/c compressor but would still like to rebuild the one I have to see if it would work. can you give me an idea if rebuilding it would work?


Proubly not.you won't have a warrenty if you do,evenwhen you buy an a/c compressor from your local parts store,you'll need to purchase the plastic filter and condensor,about $250,here in wv but worth it in the long run. ... 1998 Chevrolet Astro

Hello. Recently replaced a cv axle on a 91 honda 5 sp. It had been making noise for several months, started sounding worse and while driving the clock the car seemed to 'slip' when I'd accelerate. Then, the car got where it would not go. In any gear it would just sit and rev up, like being in neutral. Might move a few inches but that's all. I replaced the cv axle on the dirvers side. It was bad. I thought the problem would be solved. But, when I tested it, the problem was still there. W
