I have a 2007 chery trailblazer i recently got a recall letter on my headlights and air conditioning but lost the letter and i need to speak someone about this.


There are currently 5 recalls listed for this vehicle. See the web page. There is a phone number there. In addition, you could call your local Chevrolet dealer and mention the specific recall (the recall numbers are on the web page below) and work with them directly. Recalls do not cost you anything.

Will ford fix a recall after the car changes owners. The 2nd owner didn't know there was a recall.


Recalls do not expire, they are generally safety-related and therefore are covered at no cost to the current owner. You can visit nhtsa.gov to check for open recalls on your vehicle by VIN, or contact a dealer.

As the yadayada mentions though, if it was a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB), those are not covered if outside the warranty period, for the original owner or the current owner.

99 beetle won't shift out of park


NOTE: There are multiple NHTSA Vehicle Safety Recalls that cover this specific vehicle and year range.

Call your dealer first thing in the morning as this is covered under a mandatory VW safety recall.

Just to get it going - check to see if your brake lights function. If not, then it is your brake light switch. Otherwise, your shifter interlock. You "might" be able to over ride by turning your key to the first detent, shift out of park into neutral and then start (but not guaranteed). If not, then it must be towed

Call your dealer though - these safety issues must be addressed:

My 2002 Grand Prix burst into flames, no apparent reason. Any advice or recourse?


take a look at this hope it helps. engine recalled about fires:

Recall Reason ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING Recall Date MAR 12, 2008 Model Affected GRAND PRIX Potential Units Affected 207542
Recall Summary GM IS RECALLING 207,542 MY 1997-2003 BUICK REGAL AND PONTIAC GRAND PRIX VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 3.8L SUPERCHARGED V-6 ENGINE. THESE VEHICLES HAVE HIGHER FRONT ROCKER COVER GASKET TEMPERATURES, CREATING THE POTENTIAL FOR EARLIER DEGRADATION OF THE FRONT ROCKER COVER GASKET AND EVENTUAL OIL SEEPAGE.

Consequence CERTAIN UNDERHOOD FIRES MAY BE CAUSED BY DROPS OF ENGINE OIL, FROM SEEPAGE OR SPILLAGE, BEING DEPOSITED ON THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD THROUGH HARD BRAKING. IF THE MANIFOLD IS HOT ENOUGH AND THE OIL RUNS BELOW THE HEAT SHIELD, IT MAY IGNITE INTO A SMALL FLAME AND, IN SOME INSTANCES, THE FIRE MAY SPREAD TO THE PLASTIC SPARK PLUG WIRE CHANNEL AND BEYOND.

Remedy DEALERS WILL INSTALL A NEW FRONT (LEFT) ROCKER COVER GASKET WITH AN IMPROVED DESIGN FROM THE ORIGINAL GASKET AND REPLACE THE SPARK PLUG WIRE CHANNEL WITH NEW RETAINERS. DUE TO PARTS AVAILABILITY, OWNER NOTIFICATION LETTERS WILL BE MAILED IN TWO PHASES. THE CUSTOMER LETTERS FOR THE 1997-2000 MODEL YEAR VEHICLES WILL BE MAILED ON APRIL 28, 2008. GM WILL ADVISE AS TO WHEN THE OWNER LETTERS FOR THE 2001-2003 MODEL YEAR VEHICLES WILL BE MAILED. UNTIL SUFFICIENT PARTS BECOME AVAILABLE, GM STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT OWNERS OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS (1) THEY STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT OWNERS DO NOT PARK THEIR VEHICLE IN A GARAGE, CAR PORT, OR OTHER STRUCTURE; (2) IF OWNERS NOTICE A BURNING ODOR, THEY SHOULD HAVE THEIR DEALER INSPECT THE VEHICLE. THE DEALER WILL INSPECT THE VEHICLE WITHOUT CHARGE; (3) USE PREMIUM FUEL (91 OCTANE OR HIGHER) IN THE VEHICLE AS RECOMMENDED IN THE VEHICLE'S OWNER MANUAL. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080 OR PONTIAC AT 1-800-620-7668, OR THROUGH THEIR WEBSITE AT HTTP://WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM .

Recall letter fromford is not clear on problem.


If it is a recall, they'll fix it for free. If it was extremely serious, the letter would (probably) indicate that the vehicle was unsafe to drive. Call your Ford dealer, and notify him/her that you have a recall notice. They will fill you in with the particulars and schedule you for repairs. Do it soon.
Best regards, --W/D--

Is there a recall for the crank shaft for the Kia Sorento 2003?


There is a problem with the bolt that holds the Harmonic Balancer on the crank shaft and Kia will have to replace it. Be forewarned it may have to be done more than once so if it happens to it a second time stick to your guns and make them cover it. The bolt will shear off and the balancer will freewheel if you are lucky if you are not luck then a host of other problems can occur from crankshaft damage to a damaged fan shroud and radiator if it works it's way completely off but most likely it will just spin or damage the crank shaft. This should not be a DYI because if you do it and it comes off again you have no recourse if they know you have already done the work so this would be a silence is golden time. This affects several year models of the 3.5. You can find the service letter on the internet I had it but it's not that hard to find . You have to remember there is a difference between a RECALL and a SERVICE LETTER. The Recall will be sent out to all the owners the service letter is only for the dealership shop so unless you happen to have the vehicle in there for something else they may or may not mention it. A good Service Writer will catch it and suggest it done and you would be well advised to have it done because it will fail at any time and leave you stranded. Believe me there are lot of Service letters out on almost every vehicle it is the way the Car makers say oops we have a problem shops let's try to fix it before it becomes lawsuit material and they are backed into a corner where the problem is life threatening and they are forced to issue an official recall which will cost them a lot of money and bad publicity. Hope this answers your question as I tend to be long winded but knowledge is power when dealing with Dealerships.

New fuel pump and filter when turn right it wants to die?


Your car is covered for 10 years regardless of mileage for fuel pump failure. Your condition sounds like the pump is starving for fuel and cavitating.
Call a Ford dealer and explain your symptoms and ask about the Owner Notification Program. The 10 years is up for many cars. Call dealer and give him your VIN number and have them check.

I can find the letter if you need it. The symptom is that the car wants to stall, hesitate when below 1/4 tank of fuel and on turns.


Also
01B85 covers your rear wheel bearings. So does 00S31 recall.
