Can water pump problem cause engine problem?

driving a car with no water in the engine generally causes major engine failure as from your description
the dealer will only fit new engine so find an accredited service center who has experience on your make of car
get quotes to fit service exchange engines from reputable engine reconditioner or good engines from wreckers or junk yards
You can get good rear ended write offs where the engine has not been affected and has low miles on the clock

Trans range switch. is this covered under the 100,000 mile warenty?

Most dealers will only cover this under 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty. You might get a courtesy replacement if you are just over that, but don't count on it. I checked when mine went bad, the dealer quoted me "about $300 to get it fixed". After extensive research, I find that this is a very common problem with Suzuki's. Cheaper and easy fix is to go to, in the mechanical section type in transmission range selector or neutral safety switch (not sure which one I used), and it will come up---$34 part held in place with two bolts!!!! I ended up unhooking the upper radiator hose from the radiator to give me more room, but it was so worth it. It only took me less than half an hour to replace. Just make sure you line up the teeth on the internal gears of the switch, and the tranny is in park. No problems, and more than $200 kept in my pocket

I have a 97 Honda civic Ex coupe and my power driver window, and back right window(when sitting in the driver seat) stopped working. How could i fix that?

If your not over miles then it should be covered under warranty, take it to the dealer for inspection. they have standard 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty... 3 years 50,000 miles on power train...
