That seal is known as a rocker cover gasket. You need to remove the rocker cover by taking out the location bolts and any additional breather pipe.

The engine mounts are best changed one at a time if possible. Do not take them all out at once, as this will make it difficult to realign the engine. There may be three or four rubber mounts in total.

Most of the time I need to fill up my lungs with air like in yawning. what is the name of this condition? I feel a slight pressure in my brain when it happens .It has been going on for few months

There are too many things that can cause " grinding sounds " while a vehicle is in motion. A 13 year old car can have many things worn out or damaged. They can't be listed here. Save up your money and take it to an experienced mechanic. Grinding noises can be very expensive. The sooner it is fixed the less damage will be done while it's grinding.

Problem with The check engine Light!! keeps comoin on and as soon as it does truck starts running rough.

you need to know what the code is that sets the light before you can repair the problem as it could be several things and you can spend alot of money throwing parts at it and not fix it.where as with the code you have a good starting point to diagnose the problem and cost less.

Transmission , trans is slipping after it warms up, or after few miles, can it be my filter dirty? or do you think it needs to be replaced or rebuilt? rb

For any auto transmission always think basic solution, in this case change the filter, replace with new fluid, Sure repair shops want to replace the entire unit,why more money. a new trans will fix the problem. but so might a filter and fluid change do the trick for alot less money. New trans costs 2500.00 filter and fluid 50.00. you do the math

Don't have money for a dealer trying to do my tune up myself.2000 buick regal ls

Tuneups are a thing of the past since computers. Air cleaner,spark plugs gas filter , oil change are the only things left more or less.Sealed grease fittings mean no grease jobs either.That's why they charge $100/hr, no money in normal tuneups.

Car continues to misfire. Replaced spark plugs, wires, coils, module, fuel pressure regulator, and injectors. What else is left to do, without spending more money!!!!!!!

Guessing is the way to spend the most amount of money. After spending a lot of money guessing, most people dont want to spend money fixing the real problem, which in all cases, cost less than what they have spent. A shop will need to take it from here, First is to narrow down which cylinder is misfiring then go from there, Check fuel trims, compression, Vac leak, signal from the injector to the ecm. The injector is hot and the ecm grounds it. You dont say which engine you have, but the 2.4L have had a lot of coil housings go bad.

A noise at the front wheels

the jumping is the transfer case, change the fluid and that should correct the problem, it may also be the cause of the noise.
