Best bet is to spend $20 on a haynes or Chilton repair manul. This will come in handy in the future for most did repair jobs and is well worth the money.

I have dodge caravan 2005 3.3L V6 IS POSSIBLE to change the engine for 3.8

Yes, It's possible. How much money you want to spend and can you do the work yourself? Usually it's not worth the cost or time to do engine swaps. Best to just buy a new/different car. SEARCH on Google for 3.3 to 3.8 Chrysler engine swaps. There are likely online forums that discuss it.

I think the timing belt broke and have a head gasket leaking. It is a 94 camry with a v6. is it worth fixing?

You have to make the decision and I would give you some pointers to help you. The car is 19 years old. The condition of the vehicle would have to be in excellent condition. The milage should be around 350.000 klms. Trade in value zip Sell second hand value around $1000.00 if in good nick. replacement motor from wreckers somwhere around $1000.00 Best advice -Wait for a sale where a dealer offers $2000.00 for any old thing and grab the deal on a new car. Is it worth fixing?---No

Need to replace warped head

The best suggestion I can give you is to go to your local parts store and buy the repair manual for your vehicle. A haynes cost about $25.00. They are well worth the money for the time you'll spend online trying to get answers.

1999 Nissan Sentra overheating and already replaced thermostat and water pump! Please help!

For a 99 model a used engine might be the cheapest route. You can have the head checked for cracks and warpage - repair or replace as needed. The block can also be warped which will make the new head gasket leak.
Do you know for a fact the overheating is because you are leaking coolant into the engine ?

It's cant say any particular thing as every thing are very important, so best way to do talk with owner and get the car to Mercedes dealer workshop which is the near by your place and tell service adviser your requirement then they will give you a very advance report that's the best way to do it becouse if any simple thing wrong it will cost you too much money for fixing, if you spend little money for checking it worth for you than spend big money for repair, Is this information helped you?

It's a 7 year old motor vehicle, that can be properly diagnosed and repaired, not something you spend, as much on a lawyer, as the veh is worth.

Why would you ever go to a dealer, after the warrantee runs out. Just to spend extra money and get upset?

Any good repair shop could solve your issues

Have you been flushing your power steering fluid, every couple years?
Is the steering rack worn out,as a result of no fluid changes?
Suspension parts worn and tight,etc,etc.

Some dealer you got there. Took you long enough to get pissed.
I figured they were usless 47 years ago,when I was 18
