    I won't be able to check this until the morning. I really hope its as simple as you suggest:) Would the defect in my battery cause my whole car die? Could I jump start it get to a mechanic? or should I have it towed?

Possibly the sway bar links. Those do twist when the wheel is turned either way. You might get under it and push up on either one to see if there is excessive movement. Good luck.

    your battery supplies power to your whole car if it fails nothing works.

    to save money lock the car manually if you can ;if it won't be towed and, look at the battery tommorow

    a shorted battery can explode "pop" if it shorts out; it should be easy to see.

    if you are handy you can remove and, replace it yourself

I have a 2006 mercury milan. My son came out of work to find the car won't start, there is only a clicking sound when he turns the key. The radio works and the battery is about 3 yrs. old. And the gea


First the battery is drained. This will cause the clicking sound and possibly the shifter not releasing, if the voltage is low enough. The pop noise, not really sure about. Could be a fuse that popped. But a bad fuse wouldn't cause the starter to click. It would turn the engine or you would have nothing.

99 grand am was driving home battery was about to die so i tried to make it home before it died


Can't say what the thud was..but it certainly sounds like your alternator is not charging your system.. When it isn't charging and the car is running off the battery the car will do some weird things as it loses its.battery power then just die....Auto zone should have found that and not just charge the battery..get yourself a small car charger at autozone $25 -40 or so and charge it again and have them make a full charging system check..good luck..

98 volvo s70 last week I was backing up heard a boom so i stopped backed up again heard a boom again so i put the car in park then put it in drive pressed on the gas car will not go start shaking and...


I\'m thinking out loud here - if the car won\'t move when you put it in gear, it sounds like maybe the torque converter is bad. If it\'s unbalanced, you\'d get vibrations and the car may not move.



Water under the car may or may not be related. Is that maybe just a few drops, like from the A/C condensation?



If it were the water pump, then the car wouldn\'t start/run because that belt also drives the cams (without which the car won\'t run at all).



1, Check the coolant level - is it normal or low? You can dip a finger in the water on the ground and touch it to your tongue. If it tastes nasty sweet, it\'s coolant (don\'t swallow, rinse your mouth well with water and spit it out).



2, Does the car start/idle normally? If so, then it\'s something with the transmission if the car doesn\'t move back/forth. It\'s a front wheel drive car, so maybe look at the drive shafts inside of the front wheel to see if there\'s oil/grease splattered and if anything looks broken.

Mazda 2 noise


Is it related to road speed or engine speed, road related suspect the CV joint. jack the front off the ground and place on chassis stands, then start you engine. put it in gear and the clicking will go mad, find out which one it is. VERY IMPORTANT apply your brakes until your wheels stop completely before returning to park, not doing this will damage the park locking device, if it is relative to engine speed check for a crack in the exhaust manifold

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks
