My clutch won't enagage gear on my 98 corrola at low speed. I cannot change gear sometimes and car will stall. This has only just started happening, Can you tell me what the problem is?

Hi, it sounds like the clutch is dragging (not disengaging fully) first, check for air in the system, will need to open the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder, watch for any air, but do not let the fluid level in the reservoir go down to far, if no air, check that the fluid in the hydraulics is the correct type, check to see if the fluid is clear or slight lemon colour, if it appears black then hydraulic system must be cleaned out and seals checked, and replaced, or master and slave cylinders replaced, next check the adjustment and correct amount of clearance at the pedal and below on the slave cylinder. I take that the clutch is not slipping under power, if it is and clearances are correct the clutch will need to be replaced. Hope this helps, P

How do I get the part where the plug for turn signal switch go thur this without cut and rewire it?

Take apart the tilt steering column, buy the small harness, and replace.
(Harness has turn signal switch, etc. on one end. Harness goes down the column, and plugs in; on the other end. Or cut wires, solder, and use heat shrink tubing. Slide heat shrink tubing up one wire BEFORE soldering. Slide down onto soldered connection of wire, heat ->heat shrink tubing )

When the temp is above 60 degrees the horn works. I replaced the horn. I have power to the horn.

try adjusting the screw on the side of the horn it takes a flat tip short screwdriver. Turn it out 2 turns then try it it may change the pitch a little but that should do the trick, there are reeds inside the horn and when you adjust the screw out it lets it vibrate easier. The get rusty over time and the cool temperatures makes the reed valve shrink when cool causing it not to work.

My driver's side low beem keeps shorting out. Took out bulb, cleaned off rust. It came on briefly, then went out again. Filiment in bulb is OK. Any suggestions? Thanks Suff

"Rust" is your key word. The female plug probably has rust in it or is now too rusty to operate properly. I would suggest you replace that plug with a new one. Also don't forget to use "shrink tubing" on the wires to ensure they are protected from the elements.

Are you the original buyer? If so I would have contacted nissan because most states have what is referred to as a lemon law. According to, Lemon Law refers to the statement from the government that was created to protect consumers from defects in automobile. An automobile that has manufacturing defect(s) or if it requires repeated repairs after purchase and if the automobile is under warranty period, such a vehicle is termed as a lemon.

A law was placed for the benefit of consumers to prevent them from a lemon vehicle. In a nut shell if any vehicle such as a car is under warranty period and is suffering from various defects that prevent a consumer to use the vehicle effectively then Lemon law act or the Magnuson Moss Act comes into force.

Lemon law can be enforced on any sort of vehicle like a car, truck, van, SUV, motorcycle, boat or computer, etc. If any of these consumer durables is found to be defective then the consumer is entitled for either money back, replacement or a cash settlement. The law can be consulted with a Lemon law attorney as various states have different lemon laws. Some states have a lemon law for only the automobiles but some also include other consumer durables like computers, etc.

A dealer or manufacturer should have made number of attempts to repair the vehicle before being declared as lemon. Usually three or more attempts in row over a short period of time are required for any vehicle to be termed as lemon. Lemon law is also applicable to vehicles which have been resold but are still under warranty and meet the mileage and time criteria. More often it is very difficult to persuade a manufacturer to accept a lemon vehicle. In such cases a lemon suit is often called for.

To ensure whether a vehicle is a lemon or not one should observe certain conditions of the vehicle before pursuing a lemon law suit. A vehicle should exhibit some serious defect or some abnormal condition. Such a condition should be covered by manufacturer's warranty. Number of attempts for repair should also be taken into account before preparing a lemon law suit. A written notice should have also been issued to the manufacturer prior to a lemon law suit.

A vehicle that has been bought back by the manufacturer from the customer is known as a Lemon Buy Back. Such lemon buy backs are often sold in auctions as used cars by the manufacturers.

The Lemon law enforced for protecting consumers from the lemon vehicles is Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. This lemon law states that any advertised guarantee should explicitly state relevant information about a warranty. This law ensures that any warranty for goods above $15 should be clearly expressed on the goods and should be clear and easy to understand. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty act enables a consumer to bring suit to any manufacturer, supplier, warrantor, or service contractor for any defective piece of good or services.

A lemon vehicle explicitly loses market value due to its manufacturing defect. Moreover, manufacturing defects may lead to several life threatening circumstances. It also substantially impedes a person's ability to control or operate a motor vehicle for ordinary use or intended purposes. Any manufacturing defect can also create a substantial risk of fire or explosion. All these risk elements call for enforcement of Lemon law in the states of United States. This law helps consumer from all such threats and hazardous circumstances.

By brake lights and turn signals are not working, running tail lights still work no fuses blown whats my next step?

I would replace the bulbs. When you take the old ones out check the sockets for corrosion. REplace them too if you see corrosion in there. Check the grounds to make sure they're not broken and are making good co ntact. If they are rusty or corroded, take them off and clean them up with a piece of fine sandpaper or emery cloth. If the light sockets have been previously replaced check the joints for corrosion. Shrink tubing works better then tape. Get it at any auto parts store. Also check the plug in behind the bumper for contact and corrosion. This should get your lights back.
