Well I failed my emissions HC(PPM) test it a 95 olds cutlass supreme 3.1L. I need to no solutions on what it could be. any help would be great, thanks.

It is possible that you need to replace your catalytic converter. If your converter is bad it will cause you to fail an emissions test every time.

I have a Lexus ES300 with a code P0420 showing a bad catalytic converter or Fuel System Malfunction. It appears the converter was replaced with a muffler but the light remained on. When I'm at a...

Hi, a car that's running rich can also cause this code to set. You might want to check your fuel pressure regulator for a torn diaphragm. The regulator is on top of the engine connected to the fuel rail and looks like the picture below. Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator and plug the hose with a golf tee. Then start the car and watch for any fuel that spits out of the vacuum port of the regulator. This indicates a torn diaphragm. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

My 2003 Volkswagon beetle convertible's top has become separated from around the bottom and sides of rear window. Where will the water go and will it cause damage if I don't replace it? Thanks.

I'm having the same issue with my 05 Mustang. I don't know where the water will go in your car, but it could cause damage. I'm going to purchase some Goop and give it a shot.
I read on some forums that it might be only a temporary fix and I might end up having to replace my whole top. Good luck if you try it!

How expensive is it to replace an 05 bug rag top?

i've worked on auto upholstery for years and if the rear window is glass and the rubber holding it in place has seperated from the top then the top has shrunk and will have to be replaced . but if the glass and all of the fabric will still proximate then it should be repairable if you can send me a pic of the damage i can better evaluate the problem because a total replacement is between 1500 to 1800 dollars done right my e-mail is

Convertible top

First of all, what you have is a California Conversion. Nissan had the coup imported then sent to be converted. The company that converted these limited 240's did a wonderful job, they not only installed the top, but strengthened the body to compensate for the roof structure that was eliminated. The parts availablity is sparse, but out there. You may find the parts you need thru or another insurance salvage company by purchasing the entire wreck. Another possible avenue might be to have the links machined...relatively simple. These are inexpensive "do it yourself" solutions. You could take your car to Texas Auto Trim (713-661-5777) or Convert-Able systems (972-291-9769). In addition to replacing the fabric, they could repair the broken pieces.

Does anyone know where the motor for the convertible top is located on a 01 pontiac firebird?

its actually a very intricate system of motors and support arms i wouldnt try to do it yourself. pontiacs are notorious for having problems with those type of motors like windows, headlights, and convertable tops. as a matter of fact i had a pontiac sunfire with the same problem i just got the convertable top up and left it that way cause it got stuck half way up once so stop using it till you get it fixed or you might have a permanent convertable.

These codes comes out P0741

Your torque converter is not locking up.
The solution is to have the torque converter replaced and the transmission serviced.
Hopefully, you are still under warranty and can get it repaired it for free.
If not, it can get pretty expensive.
