Question about Oldsmobile Cars & Trucks
My car has a high pitched noise coming from possibly the back of the car. My dad said it had something to do with the heater or A/C. A few days ago, I was driving a 45 minute drive in rush hour traffic. The car sounded like it was running out of gas and then the pedals wouldn't work and I slowly started to lose steering. The tank was full of gas.
Explain all that at a repair shop
Have all issues resolved first
Forget the tune-up Only spark plugs left there
Tune-ups went away 25 years ago

wow it sounds like you have a few problems going on. One, your idle speed is set too high and needs to be lowered. Two, i would replace your temperature sensor so that you can monitor your overheating. As well as try and see where the leaking is coming from (i.e. the radiator cap, on the radiator itself, or where the hoses run into the engine-could be engine temperature sensor). Three, if you have to prime your engine at first to get it to run then more than likely fuel pump is going bad.

POWER STEERING PROBLEM - CONTAINER CONSIST TWO LEVELS. SHOULD THE BOTTOM PART BE THE NORMAL COLOUR OF THE FLUID AND THE TOP PART APPEARS TO BE DIFFERENT THEN REMOVE THE CONTAINER AND CLEAN PROPERLY AS THERE IS A SIEVE BETWEEN THE TWO LEVELS WHICH IS BLOCKED. DRAIN OIL FROM POWER STEERING SYSTEM AND REFILL WITH NEW OIL.
iF BELTS WERE RECENTLY CHANGED THEN THE PROBLEM MIGHT LY BY ONE OF THE PULLEYS THAT IS WARN. MEANING THAT THE BELT INBEDDS TO DEEP INTO THE PULLEY AND CAUSE THE BELT TO SQUEL. SHOULD YOU POUR WATER ONTO THE BELT WHILE IT IS SQUELING IT PROVES THAT IT IS EITHER THE BELT THAT NEEDS REPLACELMENT OR ONE OF THE PULLEY PROVIDING THE BELT TENSION IS INSPECT

Check your brake pads first,as they have a wear warning clip on them.so if you hear a loud screaming noise.Then its quite possible they have worn causing ur warning lights to come on.And i would get anouther quote as that is quite dear for a pump replacement.If it is the pump.good luck pippall!!

I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 with 120,000 miles on it and I know exactly what is wrong with this car. You either need a new a new Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) or you must clean the one you have with some throttle body cleaner. I cleaned mine a couple of years ago. They are usually good for about 80,000 miles and then they get dirty due to emission controls (smog being recirculated and reburned). The IACV is located near the trottle body on the underside. Check lexusownersclub.com and you will see specific instructions on how to clean this throttle body. It costs you a can of throttle body cleaner and some of your time and this condition will not occur again - I did it!
