If you can,go to Autozone and they will check your battery and alternator for free and only takes a few minutes,also check your fusible link,it is inline with your positive cable on your starter side.To check,get meter,put red cable at starter where positive battery connects too and black cable from meter to ground near by.Should read 12 volts or more.If not reading correctly,find fusible link and replace.

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

SOURCE: Coolant leaking into engine Compartment

Most likely it's the heater coil leaking inside the car. This is located inside the heater/AC unit up under the dash. This is where the heat comes from when the heater is on.

SOURCE: took off this morning and the escape started

you are right, its probably the fuel filter. wow 113120 miles without changing the fuel filter. also, change the air filter and have your intake manifold cleaned. this will greatly improve acceleration and fuel economy. best wishes - hotratchet

SOURCE: my 92 volvo 940 cranks but wont start, it has fire

Check your timing. Sounds like you know what you are doing and if you have spark, fuel, and comptression it should run unless it jumped time. It could be off a tooth or two and still have compression. With high milage that would be something to consider.

Is the egr valve covered under gm's 200,000 mile warrentee

You can call GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020 to find out for sure.
I think the original warranty was 5 yrs 100,000 miles for most engine and emission components. There was a law suit on the injectors and that item was extended to 200,000 miles.

2002 Saturn coupe, S series, 1.9 duel overhead cam Pinging when accelerating

Still using the 5w30 oil that the manufacturer recommends.?? If the engine is a "higher" mile engine you need stronger protection. Could also be a need for plugs & wires (mis-fires). When it comes to oil, the average mechanic cannot tell you what 5w30 means. 5 thousandths protection (hot) between mating surfaces (rods & bearings, push rods & lifters). 30 thousands protection (cold) between surfaces. If its an older engine, I recommend a higher viscosity oil. 10w40, for an engine 100,000 -200,000 miles.(the gap between surfaces has to be higher as it ages, right??) If you keep your cars running into the 200,000 - 275,000 mile range, I start to use a 20w50 oil. Try a thicker, higher viscosity oil.

Start car- blue smoke comes out. Using some oil- not too much. Does it need a valve seal job? Toyota Camry LE 2000 4 cylinder. 200,000 miles on it.

With 200,000 miles, it wouldn't pay to just do the valves
& seals,if that was the only issue

Cylinder are too worn by now

Drive it for a year or so, than replace or rebuild it

2002 Saturn SL1, 72K miles. Hasn't been driven in

Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that.

Common problems with 92 honda 5 speed

A/C Problem usuallyabout 200,000 miles (specifically high pressure hose leaks and compressor clutch usually within 30,000 miles of the hose going.)
At about 250,000 miles or so the main relay goes usually at about 290,000 Torque convertor in Automatic Transmission starts to slip.. Manual tranny can't say too much there depends on how you drive . replace clutches at every 50K or at 150K depends on driver.The cat and the mufflers usually go at abot 190,000 give or take (depends how much water you drove threw). Lastly fast idle cam valve about every 120,000. As you can see this is a great car to own.

I have a 1998 saturn Sl-1. It has about 200,000 miles on it. Is there any hope for passing the smog test. If not about how much should I set aside for repair? How about for my Husband's 2003 Allero?

Sure is. 200,000 isn't a ton of miles on these cars. As long as the maintenance has been kept up and regular items have been changed over the life of the car then you shouldn't have a problem. Sometimes though at this age the catayltic converter may become clogged but this is usually preceded by bogging down under acceleration and other power problems.

Car is humming in the front end, I thought is was one of the front bearings, but those seem fine. The hum gets loader when speed increases, It doesn't matter what gear I am in it does it even in nutral...

If you already replaced the bearings then the only other option is transmission. With 200,000 miles on it anything is possible. Best bet is to have a professional look at it.
