I was wondering if u possibly knew y everytime I went 2 the pump an got gas as 2 y I had an experience of sometimes getting bad gas? It didnt always happen but it happened 2 me yesterday at the pump an now...

Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc..) and have them reset your light. They do this FREE. If it does come back on, then you do have a problem and it's not just "bad gas"

My windshield wipers stopped working but I can hear the motor going back and forth inside the cowl .Can I repair this myself or should I take it to a dealer?

You can do it yourself, and save a lot of money. The wiper arms have come loose, and it is fairly easy to fix. Look at the arm where it goes into the cowling, and you will see a black cover on the end of the arm. Under this cover is a nut that needs to be tightened . Fix that , put the cover back on and the job's done

Driver side window wont roll up. All other windows go up and down..How can this be fixed with out costing an arm or leg..??

Power windows I take it, I would say you have a broken operating cable, costly repair because you have to buy the whole winder unit but they can sometimes be repaired with a little patience and invetiveness, I have repaired several (Crown Vic, Ford Probe and Mercury Maquis) using modified bike brake and gear shift cables.

Clutch pedal has no pressure

1991 Golf has a cable clutch, the cable pulls up on the arm you see outside the transmission. the arm rotates a shaft in the very tail end of the transmission which actuates a rocker arm which pushes a pushrod that travels up the center of the transmission and operates the clutch.

very complicated right?

anyway, the rocker arm in the tail end of the transmission is famous for cracking along its' splines and jumping over the shaft.
go to the local vw dealer or jobber who specializes in german parts.
you need the rocker arm and the cover plate for the end of the tranny.

remove the clutch cable from the arm, remove the end plate and you'll see the rocker arm, unclip the shaft, remove old rocker arm, and replace. should cost a maximum of $30-40(can)

I took my 2004 Toyota Sequioa in for oil change and check up with a dealer for 70000 miles. 2 days later my engine light and VSC lights came on. This happened once before when I had 60000miles service....

Take to aftermarket autoparts, ie Checker, Shucks, etc. They will plug into their computer and give you codes needed to fix. Usually for no cost. Good Luck
