    2004 GMC Sierra dash lights go off and on.

    Please fill out the following to ask a question. MAKE:GMC Truck MODEL:Sierra YEAR:2004 MILES:160000 ENGINE:V6 This truck belongs to a friend. He said when he is driving the dash lights turn on and off randomly. Probably hitting bumps I'm guessing. Was thinking dimer switch maybe? I got the info...

    Buick 3.1 Coolant leak

    I will check both areas. It's very elusive and hard to tell when it's a leak coming from the intake because it is so hidden and looks like it is coming from the water pump. (which I have not been able to determine yet) But in this case it should not be considering I just put a pump on it mid...

MAKE:Buick MODEL:Century Custom YEAR:1999 MILES:200000 ish ENGINE:3.1 I have replaced the cracked overflow tank, new water pump, and new thermostat. Intake gasket was replaced about 4 years ago. No idea where it is coming from but when it is cold...

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    Here is just an idea. I had the same problem when I first bought my 2000 Jeep Cherokee with the 4.0. It was from California and has the emissions for that state. I fueled it up with 87 octane just like anyone would do and it was throwing cylinder miss codes. I replaced a few minor things...

    Problematic Headlights and Turn signal On 99 Buick

    I got it figured out. It was the Multi switch/turn signal. I would have never guessed it was linked to the headlights. Figured I'd post this as solved. Thanks for the other reply too.

    Problematic Headlights and Turn signal On 99 Buick

    Well, with everything I've done so far it seems to point to the Multi switch as the possible culprit. Got one from advance and going to attempt to install it tomorrow.

    Problematic Headlights and Turn signal On 99 Buick

    Thank you for the info. Hmmm. I see. I honestly do not know if this car does or not. It is my GF's car. I'm guessing it does have because if I remember right after coming home at night with her sometimes when I worked days way way way back, the lights stayed on for a certain amount of time...

    And yes, rev does reduce once you stop throttle and slow down.

    Gradual Rev starting in second gear on 2002 Hyundia Accent

    Ok. I have to fix the stabilizer link before I can drive it again. It was broken. My sis had it until she finally got her car so I noticed this on my way home the other day. A tad bit annoying to say the least. I will scan it pretty soon though and see what codes pop up.

    Problematic Headlights and Turn signal On 99 Buick

    I used the test light and checked the fuses. They were good. I tested the connector coming from the harness and checked each lead and they have power coming to them. All except one on both the left and right that did not light up. Is it because it was the ground? I'm terrible at electrical on...

When the car goes into second gear it starts an odd kind of slow building rev. Kind of hard to explain. Doesn't seem to be coming from the engine itself though. Anyone...
