  • When is it ideal to have a radiator flush?
  • Great information about your vehicle's cooling system.
  • 1991 Cadillac: My car continually stalls in the colder temperatures. Now my check engine light is on as well, but no shop has been able to diagnose this problem. Where should I go from here?
  • Toyota Camry: I recently had my water pump, timing belt and brakes replaced. Since then, my car has been using up radiator fluid. What could be the cause of this?
  • 2006 Mercedes: Both FAB keys for my vehicle were unfortunately ruined. Is there anywhere besides the dealership where I could find replacements?
  • 1986 Chevrolet Silverado: My truck is having a problem overheating even after replacing the water pump and radiator. Where else should I be looking for the cause of this?
  • 1980 AMC Eagle: How much would it cost to rebuild the transmission in this vehicle?
  • 2007 Honda Civic: My car is making a loud clicking sound when I use max AC. Is this a relay issue?
