Problem with my 1998 chevy malibu fuel gauge needle stuck
GMC Safari Brake Caliper Hanging Up 1989 GMC,Safari I replaced brake pads this winter and it worked fine for a while than the right front caliper started to hang up. So I replaced the rotor, caliper, and pads today and the brake still hangs up. When I installed them I used new caliper bolts and lubed them so that it will continue to float I cleaned the rotor with brake clean so no grease should be holding the brake pads to the rotor. What do you think is causing that brake to hang up?
1999 Chevrolet Lumina battery goes dead Could you please tell me how to remove the left front axle on the above vehicle? The tire and wheel came off when my daughter was driving it. And sheared all the studs off that hold the wheel to the axle. She's ok thank God. I was able to remove the sheared studs, and purchase new ones, however they are too long to insert from the axle rear. I asked the clerk at the auto parts store if he had shorter studs. He told me that these studs were specific to this car, and that I would have to pull the axle to make enough clearance to insert the studs from the rear. Any advice or illustrations you have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

2001 Venture noise in front end while turning, growl.
Trans code p1870, 1-2 shifts hard Checked the code "trans slipping". Checked fluid, full, and clean (red). I believe the fluid psi solenoid is bad. Normally the vehicle runs fine. Then when put under a load or driven hard (highway), the light comes on and the trans shifts funny. When the trans acts up, the 1-2 shift is very harsh, and a burning smell is present. Upon sitting parked for around 1 hour, the trans is fine until you apply torque to it again. I will be changing the filter tomorrow, but would like your opinion.

james said: My 2008 Chevy Colorado. Abs light came on and ask system malfunction and there wad a slight jobs heart beat it did it twice combing out of the drive threw I got hone turned off the truck came out the light was off ?
Joey said: Reply: @james, probably a bad speed sensor or wire to a sensor. The front ones are most common. You would need to have the ABS computer scanned for codes to see which wheel has a problem
j brady said: can i put a motor out of a 2004 blazer in my 97 blazer without having to change the wiring.
Mechanics said: Reply: @j brady, absolutely not. They are not even close to the same. The wiring is the least of your worries. What about the brackets, exhaust, A/C, power steering, etc. Just get the right motor !

Chevy Corsica Engine Noise My engine is making a ticking or knocking noise. It only happens when the engine is warmed up. What is wrong with my car?
How To Disarm Cavalier Passlock We replaced the ignition, dash cluster and computer. Cannot get the theft system to learn or disarm. Computer codes- not on a low end scanner. Repairs for this problem = Replaced ignition key barrel, GM passlock system. Can not get the system to disarm. Have done the ten on three times so many time I have just about worn the replacement lock out. Went back to the junk yard, got the ECM and gauge cluster from the same wrecked Cavalier as the lock, which was mechanically the twin for mine. Donor was also the same year as mine. Still does not work. My car has never been wrecked, in water, or had no major parts replaced. Have not had any squirrels chewing on my wiring.
GMC Truck Over Heating have a 2002 GMC 1500 5.3 L 2WD extended cab, 183,000 mi. Two weeks ago it ran hot~ 250+ when I got on the interstate. Once I pulled off the temp dropped. I found the suction hose collapsing at ~1500 rpm. I replaced the hoses, flushed the system with cleaner but now it runs at 235 will drop then run up again. I have removed the thermostat, replaced the fan clutch, checked the fan, checked the water pump and pressure washed the exterior of the radiator core. It's not the gauge or the sensor. The temp builds gradually to about 200 then quickly rises. It will drop but eventually stabilizes at around 235+-. What do you suggest I try next? New radiator. compression check.
2005 Chevy Impala C1218 and C1245 Last Sunday I replaced the right front hub and cleared the coded from the computer. Drove about 300 miles since and the lights are still on. Had Monro read the codes - their scan tool said no issues. Went to advanced auto and used their tool. Came back history c1218 and current c1245 (bad pressure sensor, has been bad for years and don't see the point in replacing it unless necessary). Do I have an abs ghost or is there still an issue somewhere. Those are literally the only codes anywhere in the computer. Also put on new brakes and rotors yesterday and did a basic brake check today, no issues visually.
Transmission Won't Move I replaced the engine on my car, now the trans is not shifting. I checked the fuses and electrical connectors.
GMC Jimmy ABS Light And No Brakes Live Chat: The abs warning light has been intermittently coming on in our GMC Jimmy 2000. Today the brakes completely quit working during a stop. The regular brake warning light never has/did come on. Placed vehicle in park, turned off engine, and restarted without further incident, except of the abs light continuing to light periodically. Taking the truck to have codes read, three were found. Two for the front right wheel, and on for the rear right wheel. All three pertaining to sensor failure or intermittent failure. Wouldn't there need to be something wrong besides a sensor, for the brakes to fail?
