    My Dad has a 2002 Johnson outboard, 40 hp, four stroke, fuel injected, on his pontoon. It idles fine, but as soon as you throttle it up it dies. It has a check engine light on. Any one know how to go about diagnosing it? He had his "mechanic" check it out and he said everything fuel and...

    I have a 2001 Silverado with the 5.3, 4x4 and it has an oil leak I can't ignore anymore. I'm not 100% sure it's the oil pan gasket but I'm willing to replace it to rule it out. I think I understand that the pan won't come off completely without removing the cradle. Can I remove the pan, rest it...

    I'm having an intermittent problem that I believe may have to do with the converter lockup. Before the engine is at operating temp and cruising at around 35-39 mph, the MDS kicks in, the converter locks up and the engine/drivetrain starts to buck until you either back off the gas or accellerate...

    AC does not cool. '98 C1500. I charged the system last Oct. (1 can R134a) and it worked great for about 2 months, didn't use it for a month or so and the next time I turned it on, nothing. Compressor does not cycle at all. How do I tell if compressor has gone bad or is system leaking?

    Just wondering what cost would be for an oil change, filters, brake service, front end alignment, and 2 new tires would be for an 08' Escalade? I'm not looking for exact but a close figure would be good. My girl took the truck in and was quoted a huge bill in my opinion.

    My wife tells me that she smells tranny fluid on our 03 2500HD, Duramax Allison. I smell it also. Look for leaks, none. Was not quite ready for a trans service but I changed the fluid anyway. Smell went away for a few days then returned. I have an appointment to drop it off but wanted to hear...

    I have a 03' 2500HD 4x4 with a "clunk" in the steering. Most noticeable when slowly entering or exiting driveway. Dealer did a repair when almost new. Replaced intermediate steering shaft I think. (Per service bulletin) Fix lasted about a year. lately it is getting worse. Sounds as though it is...

    Hey guys , need a bit of help. I just pulled the GM Shortstar motor out of my baja bug. I'm going to install new bearings and seals in it. The problem is, I can't find any info on this motor at all. I've looked all over the internet sites, and no luck. I'm looking for rod and main clearances...
