Tip

What To Expect From An Online Car Expert


If you are reading this it is because you are probably looking online for an answer to your car questions. First, we need to establish that there are only two kinds of automobiles that have ever been manufactured in the entire world...the kind that are broken, and the kind that are going to break. Everyone that has ever owned an automobile has experienced some type of trouble with his or her car.

The modern automobile is probably the single most sophisticated and complex thing available to the general public. To understand them, you need to not only understand the basics of how mechanical things work, but you must also understand a considerable amount of computer technology, electronics, advanced electrical diagnosis and repair, hydraulics, upholstery, metal and plastic fabrication or repair, welding and several other things. You have to be able to figure out what is causing a noise or a vibration. You must have a working knowledge of how all of the many complex systems in an automobile works. You also have to understand that there are systems within the major systems and how to eliminate possible causes of a problem in a timely and accurate manner. (Poor time + mistakes = money lost!)

Car owners get really upset when they have car problems and they always want them to go away. They never want to have to pay to get their car fixed. This is understandable. Owning a car is expensive enough with car payments, insurance, licensing fees, fuel and scheduled maintenance. So here they are paying the big bucks for transportation so they can get to work and try to earn a decent living, and the [blankety-blank] thing decides that it is time to break down and eat up more of their money! Welcome to the wonderful world of vehicle ownership!

Then there is the problem with people calling themselves car "experts". Some actually are, some wish they were, and some don't know the difference. (These are the REALLY dangerous ones!) My experience has shown me that this happens in the "cyber world" even more than in the "real world". The only supervision for a so-called "expert" in the cyber world (myself included) is the person asking the question. The sad part about that scenario is that the reason the question is being asked in the first place is because the asker doesn't know the answer. (Is that like grading on a curve?) There is no shop manager to censor or validate what the person is saying to the "customer". In most online auto forums, as long as there is no abusive language involved, the "expert" can say pretty much anything they want to the "asker". Please note that I am NOT exempting myself...even this article is an example of one of those "anythings"!

The main difference is experience and intention. There are those that strive to give just as good an answer to the "free" questions as they do the "pay" questions. These are the guys that are really interested in helping people.
There are several of them on this site (if you can find them).

Here's what you can expect:

1.
As a general rule, the online "experts" are not very likely to LIE to you...not even the bad ones. You can pretty well expect that they believe that what they are telling you is the truth. There is no reason to lie, so it is probably not going to happen unless someone is just getting a kick out of being a joker.

2. You can expect the expert to answer your question as you asked it. The expert may not fully understand what you are talking about. If you did not ask a complete, detailed question, do not expect a complete, detailed answer.
Many of the experts will have to ask questions of you to get a better understanding of your situation. Do not expect them to automatically understand what you are saying if you didn't say it. Also, do not expect them to know exactly what is wrong with your car based on your original question. Depending on how your question is worded and how the expert read or understood it, he or she might know, and then again maybe not. Be ready to work with them.

3. You can expect an expert to ask you to give him vehicle information if you did not include it in your question. It is necessary to know the year, make, model, engine size and (possibly) what type of transmission your vehicle is equipped with. Without this information, it is impossible to look up accurate repair information for your vehicle.

4. You can expect an expert with the VERY BEST credentials to be an EXPERT, not a mind-reader or miracle worker. Even experts have to perform testing and diagnosis to find the cause of a problem. If an expert is telling you that some kind of test needs to be done before he or she can answer your question, this does not make them incompetent. This simply means that they want to help you find the cause of your problem and get it repaired without wasting your money by "guessing".

5. You can expect an expert to ask YOU to do some testing and diagnostics and report back to him or her. Remember...an online expert does not have access to the vehicle. It is hard enough to figure out what is wrong with a car when you can see it, feel it, and perform the tests yourself. This means that YOU have to do it. Don't expect an expert to automatically tell you exactly what is causing your problem without you having to do anything or provide feedback to the expert. In most cases, this is just simply not going to happen. Even the BEST of the BEST experts cannot fix most car problems without some type of testing being performed.

6. You can expect an online expert to do the best that they know how to do. Experts are not superhuman. Some are just better or more experienced than others. All but a very few of them have the very best intentions - even if they seem to give you an answer that has little or nothing to do with the problem you are having. It may be because of a misunderstanding of the question, or it could be that the expert does not really know the answer, but is trying to help anyway. It is human nature to want to help.

With all of that said:
Welcome to FixYa! I hope I can help you.

I have 1990 vette have rebuilt headlight motors and a new headlight module , but headlights still go up and stay up in sunlight


Not a Corvette expert, but I don't think sunlight would have any effect.
The motors should close the doors when you turn the lights off regardless if it is dark or not.
Are the headlights staying on, or just the doors staying up ? The up position is the default when something is wrong, so I think it takes voltage to close them.

The leads should be reversed to get a reading on down position ,tap the window motor gently as you push the switch and see if that helps .

I woul like to know how to tighten up driver side electric window?


Both Drivers and passengers automatic windows have set screws located at the bottom of the window regulator. Assuming I understand your question correctly "how to make the window close more tightly", you will need to remove the door panel to gain access to these set screws.

I went to put down my convertible top and it hit something in the back seat and now it is stuck. I had to manually put it down, the electrical part of it is still not working, Can anyone give me some...


I don,t understand how roof hit something in back seat
If roof is down you need to use special tool located end of driver side dash
Flip of plastic cover to see tool
Check owner manual how to use
The tool will locate between rear seat,this will close and lock rear cover
Make sure both sides of rear cover lock,get friend to press down
Once rear cover is locked down,remove tool,and check opperation
Make sure doors shut and windows down

A190 front side window stuck in half open position


Hi. The Front windows are on a seperate fuse from the rear and this MAY be your problem. the fuse for the front windows is fuse No 33 - 30amp. (that’s the fourth fuse from the left / centre row, the fuses are numbered) The Rear window fuse is No 42 just for information.

If the battery has been discharged you MUST!!! Reset the Power Windows and Traction control. It's very simple and the instructions are in your driver’s manual. But just in case you don’t have it, here they are:

Resetting the side Power Windows
If the voltage supply is interrupted (battery disconnected or flat), the side windows must be reset to prevent injury to driver or passengers:
  1. Turn the key to position 2 in the ignition lock.
  2. Press on the switches to the (Up or Closed position) pressure point until the windows are fully up, and hold for approximately 1 second.
Resetting the ESP (Electronic Stability Program or “Traction Control Systems”)
If the voltage supply is interrupted (battery disconnected or flat), the indicator lamp will light up while the engine is running.
  1. Turn the steering wheel from stop to stop while the engine is running. The indicator lamp will go out & the ESP system is reset.
If you need a copy of all the fuse values and locations etc. Post a reply here at FixYa with your email address and I will forward you a schematic diagram……..[did one for myself that’s easier to understand / follow than the Merc one]

Hope this helps!!!!
