Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

My 2002 Hyundai accent is doing many things....the power steering is gone... The battery light and brake light are on on the dash..... The heater blows only cold and it says it is overheating. All if it started at the exact same time... I cranked the car and pulled away from the gas pumps, the belt made a loud squeaking for quite a while, the lights on the dash came on, the power steering was gone, as well as the heat, and maybe a mile down the road it started to overheat. What could be wrong???

2006 focus 1.8 tdci, has only 18000 miles on clock and is never taken for long runs. Has just started to show battery light on dash and after initial start does not start again.

1995 was squealing, then started to over heat. The dash lights that lit were, brake and battery. I lost power steering. I put water in radiator the temp dropped, but still no power steering and dummy dash lights still lit. On driver side, there are 5 or 6 wheels and only one belt, is that the power steering belt that broke and do I also need a thermoatat?


Of course any belts that are missing should be replaced. If the engine overheated you probably do need to replace the thermostat as the temper has been changed. ... 1995 Mitsubishi Galant

My 2000 dodge stratus 2.4 DOHC won't start? I was driving on the highway and for a good 3 miles I felt three mini-misfires going off in my engine.

Hi There , My wife drives a 2006 Polo, manual 1.4i, I just did a major service on the vehicle 75 000 , with cam belt change.

99 Expedition ~ Will not start or turn over. I have semi power...windows, A/C, horn, etc. ;however, no radio and the gadgets on the dash go a bit crazy at first. The check engine light is constantly on. I have gone to get that checked out and I have been told to change a sensor and that should have no effect on the car starting.
