Do you know if your vehicle is overheating? I had similar problems with my AC and thought maybe the car simply was not keeping up because the hot summer had begun. Turns out the engine was getting...

I just might have to jump off a cliff if you're right!! The therm really may not be it because it reports a nice low temp, until the Engine truly reaches operation speed then it turns to hot. If it...

Dan,

Don't beat yourself up about the motor purchase. While it may be possible, I just find it hard to believe that two separate motors had the exact same whacky problem! You may have succeeded in...

2002 V6 Mazda 626 Overheating

Hi,

I think I may have narrowed down an Engine overheating problem to a leaky reservoir / overflow tank. It first manifested as A/C problems over the last couple weeks, really. I just assumed...

It seems whenever I take advantage of my tires' warranty and go in to rotate and balance my tires, the wheel always comes out slightly misaligned. A friend tells me that the steering wheel not being...
