SOURCE: security light stays on

First place to check would be a fuse.  See if there is one labled security or alarm.  If there is try changing that.

SOURCE: My mechanic told me that the bushings that hold up

It is highly unlikely that the bushings will fail. They do tend to crack alittle, but the bolts will still hold the subframe on. Now if they are rusted out, this is a possibility. You do have 4 bushings holding the subframe on also. 2 at the front, and 2 at the back.

1996 Buick Park Avenue: Growling sound coming


The growling sound is the heater/ air conditioning motor. It looks like you have to pull the dash board to replace. Go to a junk yard and practice.

I have a loud grinding noise on the undercarriage of my car and I have discovered that the noise is coming from the bushings that hold the frame under the engine and transmission. What is that part...


Sub frame bushings. Call your local GM dealer. They will know exactly what you need and I believe have everything you need to replace in a kit.

Lower ball joint 2002 hyundi santa fe


Typically these are replaced with a complete lower control arm. What happens is the ball joint is reseeding the lower control arm and rusts. When the old ones pressed out it distorts the opening in the lower control arm. When the new one is pressed in they never fit tight. Anew lower control arm is very easy to replace. 1. Jack up the vehicle on the sub frame or pinch weld. 2. Remove the pinch bolt that holds the ball joint to the knuckle. 3. Separate the ball joint from the knuckle. 4. Remove the two bolts that secure the horizontal bushing to the sub frame. 5. Remove the single bolt that secures the vertical bushing from the subframe. 6. Remove the lower control arm. If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.

On the a-frame of passenger side there is a black bar that comes off of it and its missing what seems like a bushing and bolt because it's not connected, what is this part so i can get one


that part is called a sway bar link, and consists of a long bolt, a spacer sleeve, 4 rubber bushings, 4 metal washers, and a nut. Your auto parts store should have this in stock, in the 10 to 20 dollar range or less.

2002 pontiac grand am rack and pinion replacement how to


Removing the rack and pinion assembly from a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am Se To get the old rack and pinion off of the car for replacement involves lowering the sub-frame, removing the stabilizer bar, and pulling the rack out from the driver side of the vehicle.
  • Start by lifting or jacking up the car and removing the front wheels. Once the car is safely supported, disconnect both tie rods from the steering knuckles.
  • The rear motor mount sits on top of the cross-member part of the sub-frame, and must be disconnected to allow the sub-frame to drop a few inches. Remove the three bolts attaching it to the center of the sub-frame - one in the back and two in the front near the back of the transmission.
  • Loosen the two bolts holding the front of the sub-frame. Place a scissor jack or bottle jack under the rear of the sub-frame where the bolt for the motor mount was. Remove the two smaller bolts from each side of the rear of the sub-frame (total 4 bolts) and then loosen the two remaining larger bolts holding the rear of the sub-frame (these bolts go through the rear control arm bushings and are very long) until the bolts are only going through the control arm bushing, and not into the chassis. You do not need to remove these completely.
  • Remove the stabilizer links from both sides.
  • Next you must disconnect the steering linkage. This is done easily by lifting up the rubber boot to expose the small bolt holding the linkage. Remove the bolt and pry the linkage upward using a pry tool or screw driver.
  • Near the passenger side of the crossmember, remove the bolt holding the power steering line bracket to the chassis. You may now begin to lower the sub-frame using the jack. The front bolts should have lowered the sub-frame about a half-inch or so, allowing you to lower the back of the sub-frame 3 or 4 inches.
  • With the sub-frame lowered, you can now access the bolts holding the stabilizer bar in place. The right side has a nut screwed onto the top of it holding the power steering lines, remove this first, then remove both bolts. Pry or pull the stabilizer brackets up and out. Remove the stabilizer bar.
  • Now you can get to both of the bolts holding the rack in place. Remove both of these, then begin to slide the rack toward the driver side wheel well until there is no more slack in the power steering lines. At this point you should be able to get to the nuts securing the lines on the rack. Loosen both nuts and be ready with something to cap the ends with. I used part of a plastic bag and a wire to tie it. You can now pull the rack out through the driver side.
  • Be sure to replace the rubber o-rings on the ends of the lines when putting the new rack in. Replace everything in the reverse order. Put your tie rods on the new rack, making sure to count the turns or make a mark or measure to be sure your tie rods end up close to the same length as before.
  • Bleed the power steering system.

Important: Get an alignment! Not only is it dangerous to drive with your steering out of align but it will also grate the tread off your tires in a matter of weeks or even days.

My mechanic told me that the bushings that hold up the subframe are showing signs of cracking. He said that since the steering column is attached I would lose control if the bushings broke. Is it possible...
