Why won't it start what should i do

from what i am seeing alot of people that have your type of vehicle went with different cars because of all the things that are messing up on the 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante, i personally would not spend endless amts of money trying to fix something that is just gonna keep breaking down, but that is just my opinion.what i would suggest is that you need to decide for your self what you want to you, do you want to keep spending money that you dont really have to just spend money for a vehicle that wont break down every 10 min, think smart not hard,

Is there any way to adjust the transmission or how do you know its going

Go to a reputable shop, or ask friends or family to recommend one, spend the small fee and have them check it for you so that you don't spend your money in the wrong place.

1996 dodge grand caravan p1984 code....transmission problems

You don't have any money your willing to spend,
for any reason, to diagnose any of the vehicles
You don't trust any type of repair shop
So how do you keep yourself in vehicles that
actually get you around?
I would get rid of it,give what i know about the
vehicle & I have no idea why your here ,when
no shop should deal with you .

Car not get over 20 mph

Check your Air idle Control valve, speed sensor, throttle body , and your accelerator cable. You should find the problem there.

Noisey front end

first check the plastic splash panel under the front of the vehicle
they have a habit of breaking off the mounting pegs and flap from the air flow under the front of the car
the faster you go the harder they flap
abs and traction lights work off the same wheel sensors so there could be a broken wire to a wheel or a problem wheel sensor
wheel bearings are a growl or a disc brake scratching noise on cornering
cv joints click going slow and when on slight turns
the abs sensor is part of the hub so that brings it back to wheel bearings
best idea is to go to an accredited service center and have a proper diagnosis done and a quote and don't spend a dime until you have that done

2004 speed monitor indace cluster

If you experiencing issue with gauges not resetting, for example, speedometer shows speed above 120 mph while car standing still, it's quite common problem in 2004 Tahoes. You have few options:
- go to dealership and replace the cluster (a lot of money)
- search internet and find a shop to repair cluster. Since the problem is quite common, there are many options. Will cost much less then dealership
- if you are comfortable with soldering gun - buy replacement motors on Amazon, disassemble dashboard, remove cluster, replace motors. This is the cheapest option - about $35 and hour and a half of your time to replace all motors in cluster.
- last option is for people who don't like spending money (and fixing issue too), put car on emergency break, shift in gear, turn key to start engine. With every attempt gauges will reset by a bit. Repeat until gauges go all the way to zero.

I have a 2006 Chevy Equinox. The Traction control and ABS warning lights have come on. Onstar analysis said the problem is in the rear passenger side. It appears a signal is being put out by the wheel...

You will have to spend money to retrieve the ABS/Traction
Codes,and have diagnosed and repaired

Right Rear Wheel Speed Sensor--is a possible
failed part.

You never guess,you test,find problem,
determine solution,then repair

Car makes a low pitch sound starting at 30mph & getting louder as speed increases. 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra w/ 3.8liter.

Check for uneven tire wear, make sure the wheels are properly balanced, check for proper tire inflation.
Low pitched noise that increases with speed is related to tires, wheel bearings, etc. Start with the easy and cheap remedies first... tire inflation, wear etc.

Tiburon 2005 SE 6 cly. I've replaced the TPS 3

how does it break???? it must not be installed properly, what happened to the first one??? theres no reason one should break??? I think a qualified repair shop should look at it and determine what is wrong before you spend any more money on a TPS.
