Having problems with your 1999 Toyota Camry Solara ?

I have a 1999 Solara with a code of P0440. I have about 130K miles on the car. The car runs beautifully with no major issues. So my question is what is the probability that I may have to change out the solenoid. What is this rated if I were to take it in and have done.I am debating the cost of having it done with the savings of doing it myself however it will take me longer since I don't have the equipment a mechanic has. Is it worthwhile to do myself anyway?

I have a 1999 Camry with this code. Apparently there are a few things this code could indicate. Ultimately, in my car, changing the charcoal canister fixed it. It could also indicate a lift sensor needs or EGR valve needs replacing. As the charcoal canister is basically an "air filter" that doesn't affect how the car runs, I waited until before my safety inspection, as the check engine light wouldn't go off until the problem was fixed!

2002 Lancer has a bad front wheel bearing. Can this be done at home and if so what tools are needed? If we take it to a garage what is an est. cost and how long does it normally take. Thanks for your help!

My 2006 Chevy Impala SS gave me a blinking check engine light while I was driving. It started to feel like misfiring in the spark plugs or the timing.

Best said if I steal the words from another Pontiac Grand Prix owner..."For the love of God and everything holy, where do I put in power steering fluid?" I 've been told by the dealer that it would cost a whooping $217 to put in $2 worth of power steering fluid if I take the car back to the dealer to do it. I'd like to put in the power steering fluid myself and save $215, but I can't find the HOLE!

Without warning I went out to start my Jeep and heard a loud ticking noise. My Brother-in-Law checked it out and said it would need a valve job but then the valve freed up and went quite again (no ticking). Five minutes later it got stuck again. Since I'm on disability income I just can't have it towed in to a shop without first know the average cost of a valve job or are there any additives that might help to free up the valve until I can save up some more money to have the work done?

I want to get service for a AWD 2005 GRD CHK LTD What are the basics that I should have done for 45000. I have had no dealer work after 25000. Dealer went out of buisness. I was always taking their advice on what was needed. I get oil changes every 4000 miles. Drivers are both over 60 so no hard driving. Cost is always important. Should we go only with dealer?

Ok.. i just bought a 2001 z3.Whhether this was a good dicision is debateable. The BMW dealer charges 135.00 for an oil change. Is this not robbery or do I need to learn some things. Also.. what services need to be done and how can I learn to take care of tthis car? Thanks for putting up with the ignorant.

When you consider that dealerships charge $90.00 plus an hour for labor and suggested retail for the filter is probably close to $20.00 and oil is around $3.00 a quart, even at Walmart, then the price doesn't seem out of line. Expensive cars require ... 2001 BMW Z3

Please help! I have a 2007 Audi A4. My check engine came on last month, so I took it to a shop for a free diagnostic check (where they plug that tool into the dash).

Scooter Thanks for getting back so quick. The company will send a replacement part for free. But I will probably have to get someone to put it on. I going to attempt to take off the outer "plate" just to see if I can see anything. It's just a few bolts. Then maybe if it is right in front of me I can get a neighbor to help with it.Ironic, trying to save money is actually costing me more money YIKES!! Thanks again and have a great day.

Hi, This past weekend the temperature must have gotten so hot that it cracked my dashboard in 2 places. Both cracks are on the defroster vent. I have read that it is easiest to replace the dashboard rather than fix it, but I do not believe this would be an easy task or very cost effective with my car. In your professional opinion, how much does this fixture usually cost or should cost? Would it be better to provide the part myself and just pay for the labor? Should I take to small shop or would

I need to know how to change the spark plugs on a 2005 Chevy Impala with a 3.4 liter motor. I'm just not sure if there is any tricks I need to know.
