Thermostat gtauge shows hot but fluctuates.

Check in the engine bay if all wires are in tact. If you can find where the sensor is check the wire if it reads a constant 12 volt . by bridging the wire with a fused cord to the body and the gague shows constant you know the sensor needs replacement . Also check for airlocks in the water system

Steering system knocks and makes noise at low speed turning. Is it a maintenance thing ?

Hi, check your drive axle CV joints. If the boots are torn, the joints are usually bad. A worn out CV joint will pop when you make a tight turn. If a CV joint is bad, I recommend replacing the whole axle, as the labor is much less than replacing just the joint. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Soleniod failed, grandson rigged it to start, installed new soleniod now truck will not start. any ideas? I know a little about old cars,etc but am not a mechanic.

I would be looking at the ignition switch,or the neutral safety switch,be sure the solenoid is hooked up correctly first.Then check to see if the small wire to the solenoid has 12 volts on it when trying to start the engine,if it does not,have 12 volts on this wire,check the neutral safty switch,and if it is fine,replace the ignition switch.

My check engine light came on i brought a new battery it went off i had mycar checked the mechanic said ineed a 02 sensor to keep from burning a lot of gas i also have a antifreeze leak but my car does...

When you removed the old battery and installed the new one, you effectively reset your Check Engine Light-until the fault (I assume it was a fault for the O2 sensor) reset. A new O2 sensor, installed should run you somewhere in the neighborhood of $70 to $125 depending on how difficult it is to get to, what brand is purchased-there are wide variations and some places will use 'universal' O2's to cut costs.with mixed results. A new O2 sensor will react more quickly to engine demands and conditions, allowing the car's computer to adjust parameters more rapidly and efficently translating into better fuel mileage. The antifreeze leak is hard to predict since you did'nt say where it was coming from-if it is a radiator or water pump, in the low hundreds. If it is a heater core, in the mid-high hundreds, maybe worse, they can be a bear especially on fords. A hose is usually easier and less costly. The big thing about coolant leaks is they can get much worse, and dramatically too. Y ou don't ever want it to overheat an engine that is aluminum-if it does overheat it probably will never be the same. Pay careful attention to the temp gague until you can correct this, it is much more important to fix this first.

Hello I had the problem on passenger side window, and had to replace the full mechanism, which is rather costly. I now have the problem on the driver side window; I would like to avoid changing the whole...

OK, changing the computer won't solve a mechanism issue for either the passenger or driver's side. The mechanism you refer to is called a 'window regulator' and yes, parts can be purchased instead of replacing the whole unit.

However, if you get one from a salvage yard, the cost of it can be competitive with getting new parts that fix only part of the window mechanism.

In practice, changing the whole mechanism is indicated to get the window working correctly, even if it means going to a salvage yard to get the expected discount.

Good luck on this repair.

97 850 with stuck hood

The whole mechanism is run by two cables. The first from the hood release latch to the left side hood catch. The second from the left hood catch to the right one.
First look and see if the second cable is disconnected from the left hood catch. if it is just pull it and the right should open. If not...
Have somebody with skinny arms to reach up from under the car and manually pull the lever on the right hood catch.
Hope this helps...
