Live information from the Good Guys Car Show.
1995 Cadillac Fleetwood: I’ve noticed my power steering intermittently coming in and out while turning right. The fluid is fine- what might be causing this?
1977 Ford Van: My cooling system has been completely rebuilt and flushed. I’ve noticed a surge in my water flow. Have you seen this issue before?
2001 Dodge: My heater valve is broken. I’ve been quoted $800 for a repair. Does this seem reasonable?
1996 Dodge 1500: I’m having an issue with my electrical system. It isn’t a battery or alternator issue. What should I be looking at next?
2008 Nissan Titan: Would you recommend replacing my timing chain even though my truck seems to run fine?
2008 Ford Ranger: My heat hasn’t been working for a few weeks. I had my thermostat changed over the summer months- could this be connected with this issue?
Cars talked about on this show are the 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood, 1977 Ford Van, 2001 Dodge, 1996 Dodge 1500, and the 2008 Ford Ranger.
