If you are here in CALIFORNIA you call the PUBLIC UTILITIES Commission (CPUC)... and ask their EXPERT (and tax supported) HELP because they are THE permissions FOLKS... WHO "CONTROL" all your various companies who operate in our state... HOLD down prices and assure quality service and customer cooperation...

(sure: Just like J. Edgar didn't wear dresses)

Almost every State has such a august DEPARTMENT...

Most of these high fliers are PRIMARILY FUNDED on TAXPAYER money to protect you from just such abuse...


Keep their well upholstered offices well staffed and comfortably appointed...

If they are not tooo busy raking it all in... perhaps you could get them to do their job. Look out for you.

That is what they are there to DO (doncha know).

I call the DMV and get 4 DIFFERENT reasons why
my 5 submissions have gone NO-WHERE... (during the last 6 months) on a currently REGISTERED vehicle we have owned since it was NEW (1973)... never CHANGED ADDRESSES OR LICENSE NUMBERS... all fees paid (some twice)... No wants, warrants (or even warnings)...But at least we get answers...

Try find an ADVOCATE at the CPUC... If you can... they fix your issue... really!

It's their primary function!

Seriously... Call the phone company and THREATEN MIDDLE MANGEMENT with the above notion...

All the little people and TOP BRASS pretty much know it for the joke it is... but the THREAT can cause a lot of paper-work...
so there is LEVERAGE to be had (I'm just saying).

Try it... What have you got to lose??

Book labor time for auto repairs on a 1967 mustang

This is not a complete job. You must also replace all rubber brake hoses and all metal lines on a car so old. This is major work if done properly. You can order stainless steel lines already bent and correct length, or you can make your own by cutting and flaring parts store lines to fit. I would charge at least as much as retail cost of parts for labor--perhaps more. Job could take several days.

Can the aluminum rear end air conditioning line for the suburban 98 be repaired without changing the entire pipe?

Yes but repairs don't last By the time you get the line removed from the truck carry it to a grat welder with lots of TIG welding pratice, Pay them and then reinstall the Line the new line order from a discount auto parts store from their warehose system is going to be a better buy,and sure fix. Cutting the pipe where broken, fitting a heat shrink tube over the cut pipe that will fit over the Compression union that you beged your contractor buddy to get for you at a comercial HVAC company. Tighten this on the clean and stright line. Put the heat tube over it and heat it to seal maybe it won't leak. The pipe needs to be suported as vibration of the vehical moving can loosen such a fitting after awhile. This is not a good thing and needs to be avoided but it can be done and work ( How long ? ) Roll the dice !

What is the best way to access the fuel pump to repalce it without adding expenses? They want to cut the floor and do it. Will this cause problems in the winter? We live in Michigan with a lot of deep...

Too bad GM doesnt provide a cover to access tank without dropping the tank. I would think creating this "hole" would be quite the endeavor and done correctly would add quite the additional time and expense. Decline cutting holes and drop the tank in order to service the pump/sender. Any reputable repair firm should or would never recomend this measure in order to access the pump in the fuel tank I would hope....

99 v6 camaro overheats and heater not working

My dad used to weld the cracks with JB weld. He would make aV shape line in the crack with a grinder and fill it in. I had a 79 GMC pickup that he fixed. I sold the truck several years later and it never leaked.But then again the heads were cast iron then.If your loosing coolant . That's why your heater is not working and your car . Take it back as WORKFORIT1 suggested and tell them about it.You are the one paying for it.

1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L. V6 Engine runs beautifully but after 16-20 miles highway driving engine stalls as if flooded, or as if fuel is cut-off. After sitting for a few minutes, will start and run...

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work
