Usually when your exhaust shoots out white or grayish white smoke your head gasket is out. its not a hard or very expensive fix.

Why won't my 2000 mercedes S500 passenger door open from outside intermittently


it sounds like the power door lock motor is bad and will have to be replaced. if you don`t want to replace it with a new motor the only other thing to do is try and get a good used one from a wrecking yard.

I have a 2001 dodge Durango 4.7 v8. The battery died and the alternator tested bad. I replaced both the battery and alternator. The new alternator within a week stopped working and I replaced it. It was...


it is the regulator that is the problem
a battery will need 14.5-14.8 volts dc to charge and a fully charged battery in good condition will read 13.2 on a multimeter
as you say the regulator is in the ecm so get a good replacement from the wreckers or junk yard or get a reconditioned ecm for those shops that can recondition/exchange

Coolant leak at oil filter housing cant find part anywhere


best bet considering the age of the vehicle is to stop by your local junk/wrecking/recycling yard. tell them the size motor (hopefully it's a 3.8 litre). and they should be able to supply you with the part.

Put in new battery and new cables and the the car started smoking and made a popping sound.


Did the battery get installed polarity reversed? If so, it will have damaged the alternator, the engine computer and about every polarity sensitive electronic component in the entire car, plus many of the fuses. Things like motors, mechanical relays, fuel injectors, some ignition components will stand a better chance of survival. You may get to know your local auto wrecking yard employees very well. Good luck!

How to fix windshield wiper motor


Hello Dodge Owner,

Unfortunately, these cannot be "repaired". Once these go out, they would need to be "re-built" by the manufacturer, or someone who specializes in these types of repairs.

Your best bet would be to go to a local wrecking yard and purchase a "used' one. This is usually cheaper than buying new, and chances are you'll get good one. These types of parts don't typically "go out" often.

Price a new one first simply to compare the price of that at a wrecking yard. Some wrecking yards get greedy and charge the same or close to the price of a brand new one, which in any case, you may as well buy the new one.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
