Question about Cars & Trucks

My house is lower in the middle of the house

I have a crawl space under the house. I can see my house is lower in the middle of the house than it used to be. From the exterior wall walking to the middle of the house you can tell you are going down hill. I don't know where to start to try to fix this or who to call. Does anyone know if it is something I could go to my insurance company about?My house is a single story dwelling built in the 1950' s. Help!

It is rotting or sinking foundation posts
there are re-stumping organizations that can come and quote you for the job or you can use acrow props to jack the floor up until it is level and put blocks onto of the stumps
An acrow prop is a bar that is threaded in one section where you adjust it to the floor then pin it and then turn the screw against the pin so that it acts as a screw jack

SOURCE: I recently parked my 2006

I am in no way an expert, but I would bet its a loose parking brake. I hate the electronic button, you never know how hard the parking brake is applied. I had a similar problem when my Jetta wound up parking itself in the middle of my street (my house is on a short hill) about 20 minutes after I parked it. Went in and had the cable tightened. Worked like a charm.

SOURCE: I have a misfire on cylinder 4.

It sounds like your car is having intermittent misfires as it is only happening under load. This is really hard to diagnose based on a description.
You could be getting a bad air/fuel mixture, bad wiring, bad rings, oil or coolant leak into the engine, etc...
Scan the car with an OBD tool to see what the code is as that will help narrow down the cause.

SOURCE: The window switch on the

  • So if I understand you correct the drivers door switch is not working for the rear window.
  • Try using the the switch on the rear door for that window then.
  • The master switch is great to work all windows but the rear window switch should still work as well even if the master switch on the drivers door fails.
  • Now if both switches should don't work then it may not be a switch failure at all. this could be a wiring issue or a burnt window motor/regulator.
  • In this case you will nee some help as you are going to "help" the regulator out. Once you get it up I advise to let it be until repaired. You don't want to stress the track up to much before the whole assembly is replaced (should this be the problem).
  • So if both switches don't respond the your going to grab the window (one hand on each side of the window) as if your palms are touching and pull up at the same time the switched is being pushed up.
  • It may take a bit to get it but it will be fine.
  • If the window is down in the door (in the way down position) then get your fingers in there and grab the window and slowly pull up on it. Make sure the switch is being pushed to roll the window up at the same time.
  • Once you get it up a bit then take it the rest of the way as explained above.
  • I have had to do this on a few occasions and it works fine.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Underground Exterior Wall Water Leak

First of all, why did you post in cars and trucks? Secondly for anyone to be able to help you, they would need you to paint a better picture in their head of the problem. it sounds to me like you need a professional to come in and inspect where the water is coming from and how it can be corrected.

Replacing front turn signal light bulb on 2006 toyota 4runner

You have to crawl under the car to get this done. Identify the location of the bulb then crawl underneath and locate the appropriate connector. Grab the connector with your hand and twist the connector right-to-left. The connector will then disengage from the plastic housing and you can withdraw the connector and the bulb from the housing. Once disconnected, grab the bulb with one hand and the connector with the other, and pull out the bulb straight out (no twisting). Replace is the reverse. Easy. Should take less than 1 minute.

Can you please tell me how I can locate the a/c drain hole on a Honda Civic 2003 model. Many thanks

Look under the hood towards the passenger side or the middle at the fire wall there should be a small tube sticking out of the fire wall which will most likely be your drain tube. Look real good though sometimes its a little lower but its just a short tube.

Where is the thermostat in a 98 chevy malibu 2.4L? It does not appear to fit behind the housing where the top radiator hose connectts

No it not at that housing, Its under the car kinda. If you remove the heat sheild for the exhaust manifold you will be able to see the top of the housing. It connects to the bottom of the water pump housing then to a metal pipe that goes under the oil pan to the lower radiator hose. You will be able to remove the two 8mm headed bolts from the top, then unbolt the stud that holding the metal pipe under the oil pan and then you can get to the t-stat. Lots of work in tight spaces but it is possible to do with out pulling the exhaust manifold or the water pump housing!

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1990 Jaguar sovereign, also is there a way to get into the trunk with out a key and the electric lock is not working. (there is no crawl space behind back seat)

The fuel pump relay on my 1990 is located on the passenger side under the dash. You have to remove the lower interior panel to expose a number of relays there will be a color guide that tells you which relay is the one for fuel.

How to remove the extra tire.

The tools to remove the spare tire should either be behind the bench on the floor or wall, or under the rear seat (king or crew cab) in a trap door. The instructions for removing the spare are printed on Tyvek paper and should be zip tied to the tools.
Hope this helps!
