2004 kia spectra-headlights blow

The lights should be able to handle well over 16 volts before blowing. How often do they go out? What brand of bulb a you using. Do your headlights bounce when you drive down the road. Is the connector for the headlights in good shape with no burnt pins. Are you touching the glass of the bulb with your fingers when you install it?

I would lean towards the headlamp relay. They are cheap and easy to replace. Try that and see.

During highway driving, my 2005 Ford Excursion Diesel seems to vibrate intermittently @ 2000 RPMs and speeds between 62 - 75 MPH. I can accelerate through the vibration or keep RPMs below 2000 to...

I would first check the u-joints on the driveshaft if the problem only happens when the speed is between 62-75mph. Then check all the tires for lumps or bulgesin the sidewall or tread surface. The tires may also be out of balance and bouncing at that speed. If the vibration occurs only when the engine is around 2000rpm, check the pulleys, serpentine belt and anything driven by it for looseness. Also, check the trans mount to see if it is loose or broken. If everything checks out ok, have the OBD codes checked to see if anything might be causing the engine to surge.

Check power at both headlights. Often one goes out and you don't notice till the other goes out. if both have power change the bulbs...if not check the switch and fuses as well as the dimmer switch.

Where are the airbag sensors on a 2002 Malibu? Daughter ran off road, hit ditch & did damage to right front from headlight down....both airbags that normal?

Hi, the impact sensors for the air bags are usually located between the headlights more or less at the lowest point of the headlights. It is possible that the air bags will deploy as the impact sensors work with vibration. If the vibration is big enough to activate the sensor the air bags will deploy.

Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu

I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.

Headlights move up/down-loose retainers on bottom

2 of my 3 2005 Malibus had this issue. Even though the top nut seems tightened, the bulb is a bit forward in the assembly. Try loosening the nut and pushing the bulb back all the way and then re-tighten the nut. If that doesn't work, then the other quick fix is with the tabs on the bottom of the assembly that drop into loose fitting slots on the grill frame. I used some rubber washer/grommets on the tabs to make the tabs fit tightly into the receiving slots so the bulb can't move about.
