It could be ur radiator being low on fluid or the tranny. check the fluids or you may have to take it to a NAPA to have a full system diagnostic check run

Transmission shfts hard ,transmission oil level reads to much the overdrive light flashes,Also dashboard lights won't work front door and passenger door windows won't roll up or Down properly. Help please


If your tranny is over filled, fix this immediately. Do not drive this car until it is repaired.

An overfull tranny will not lubricate nor cool properly. Further, the oil will be whipped into a frothy mixture of oil and air ... as it gets hotter and hotter it will get worse and worse. The oil will expand and flow out of the fill tube spilling onto the hot exhaust manifold and very likely cause smoking and possibly a fire.

Vaccuum leak, had it smoked and all they told me was tha smoke was rolling of the top of the tank. Any ideas?


So you had a code for an EVAP leak? P044X (x = any number 0-9)

If its coming out of the tank than the fuel pump seal is probably the culprit. It is fairly common on Saturns. I've had a couple that the retainer had spun all the way of and fuel would poor out the tank when the owner tried filling.

The next step would be to drop the fuel tank or if there is an access door to the fuel pump remove that and see what is going on.

Tire Monitor & Sensor Fault


The sensors are pretty dependable. You have to make sure that the tire pressures are on the money. Check the door jam for the correct front and rear pressures. Don't go by the tire, go by the door jam or owners manual. At times when the outside temperature changes a lot it can cause the light to come on.
You may want to check the tires for defects, punctures, or a bubble/s.

What is the factory tire size for a 1986 Jeep Cherokee?


@thundergod: also, tires need to be inflated uniformly so the rolling diameter is the same all around. Follow the rating on the door label, because the vehicle weighs more on the front axle tires than the rear, thereby compressing the rolling diameter.

How do you reset the low tire light on a 2006 Toyota Tundra?


Check that all tire pressures are good. Including the spare tire. If the spare is low, it will also make the light come on.

07' mitsu. endeavor. what is the warning light on the lowest right hand corner of the dash. it looks like an upsidedown half circle with a jagged line as the bottom of it and an exclamation point inside of...


This sounds like the low tire pressure warning light. The tires have small sensors on the back side of each valve stem that monitor your tire pressure. I live in the northeast and when the temperature really drops I get the same light. Usually once you get rolling the friction of the tire on the road heats up the air in the tire causing it to expand to it's proper pressure. You may want to check your pressures to ensure that they are inflated properly.
