SOURCE: Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.

My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, definitely an electrical issue. Some ideas to check, consider and/or explore:

  • IGN switch - check for loose, corroded or heating connections. To test, under normal usage of the vehicle, should feel warm but not overly hot. If so, then possibly loose connection;
  • fuse/relay box - check for loose, corroded or burned terminals, holders, clips and connectors/pins. Use an electrical contact cleaner and spray. It may also be necessary to scrape to remove burnt marks/corrosion;
  • fusible link - the battery would have 2 wires connected to the + terminal. The big wire goes to the starter, the smaller of the two is the electrical systems main wire. This normally goes to the fuse/relay box. Check for frayed ends, loose connection, corroded terminals. In some instances instead of being at the battery's + terminal, it is connected to the end of the big cable down at the starter motor.
  • ALL connectors with big wires - these carry the main +12 either as always ON, ACC or IGN. If a connector has a wire bigger than the others, check them. It may be necessary to disconnect to enable you access to the inside pins/terminals. Scrape them clean.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

You could have any of these problems:
1) vacuum leak- broken air hose or disconnected air hose.
2) water in the gasoline- add a water remover to you gas tank.
3) bad or disconnected spark plug wire(s).
If this were my Forester, I'd take it to a mechanic who has a electronic engine tester..

Bmw312i 2004. Lost forward power. Car went well until stopped on hill at lights would not go forward backed back to flat. Started very slow and then went ok


Without any further info, it sounds like a transmission fluid issue.
If it was running fine when level and started acting up while in an incline, you may not have sufficient transmission fluid in the transmission.
The fact that it started to move slowly then went ok once level is an indication. If you continue to drive in this condition, you could damage your transmission.
You should have your fluid checked (some of these newer transmission are 'sealed', meaning there is no 'dipstick', but any competent shop can check the level and the condition of the oil)
Are you the original owner? If you bought it used, you may have uncovered the reason for selling, which I've heard can be temporarily masked by using additives, etc.
Any major transmission repair is going to be expensive...2~3 k

Toyota Corolla Fielder CVT transmission problems, please help


I don't know about your model.
But did you change the transmission filter & install new gasket?
From the air filter, remove all that to the engine without breaking or move anything inside.
Clean it well with MAP Sensor Cleaner, be very careful not to move the inside flapper.
Take as many photos as you can in case you don't know how to put it back together correctly.

Dashboard warning '; engine too hot stop car


The first thing I would do would be check the fluid level in the radiator. Sounds like the car is overheating under load due to lack of coolant. If the coolant level is ok then the radiator cap may be leaking pressure and causing the car to overheat.

I HAVE A 2001 AZTEK AND WHEN ON AN UPHILL INCLINE STOPPED, YOU MUST KEEP FOOT ON BRAKE OR VEHICLE WILL ROLL BACKWARDS


This is normal, depending on the depth of the hill. This is frequent with standard/manual cars on uphills, they can roll back, but with automatic vehicles they usually have a small amount of throttle, (you'll notice this when putting your vehicle from park into drive with your foot off the break, it'll start slowly moving forward)
Now on the hill, if it's a steep incline your car will move backwards, it all depends on how high your throttle (the car itself) is, and the incline depth of the hill.

Engine light flashes when going up hill.


sometimes when you are going up hill your check engine light or your oil light will come on because all of the oil is at the back of your oil pan.
