If your serpentine belt is what is broken (about 4 feet long), it is the belt that turns you alternator, water pump, power steering, and air conditioner. With out that belt in place your steering wheel will be hard to turn, your air conditioner will not work, your battery will not charger, and your car will over heat. In other words you will not be able to drive very far. Go to the auto store and purchase a new belt and put it on. There should be a diagram of the routing under the hood or in your owners manual. It is not hard to figure out how to route the belt , smooth pulleys get the smooth side of the belt and and grooved pulleys get the grooved side of the belt. You may have to put a pipe over you wrench to move the spring loaded pulley to get enough slack to slide the belt over the last pulley.

My 92 ramcharger transmission stops working after it gets to operating temperature

First off I love those trucks.. And it sounds like your seals in the trans are getting old and brittle. When the transmission fluid is cold it is basically more thick, and once it gets hot the fluid becomes much more thin, so if your seals are getting old and crack and or break, the thin fluid can bypass the seal much easier, so basically your loosing pressure internally, most likely a basic trans rebuild will fix your prob.

Do rotors wear out before the break pads do? I own a Honda CR-V 2009 and was just told my rotors need machening but I don't need to replace the break pads. Can this be right?

Hi Nancy,

Typically pads need to be changed more than once before rotors needs to be *replaced*. Most shops machine rotors when changing pads to give them a smooth, even surface. Machining removes groves that cut into them as a result of normal wear (or if pads are not replaced promptly). Machining can straighten warped rotors due to excessive heat / quick cooling. These are definitely NOT considered "worn out".

Worn out rotors must be *replaced* if they are too badly damaged, rusted, etc. or if they have been machine so many times that they are too thin to safely brake the car. There are specific guidelines that spell out exactly how thin rotors can be before they must be replaced. Mechanics measure the thickness of the rotor with a micrometer which reveal thicknesses to the 1/1000 of an inch.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

My 2002 gmc envoy has a high screech when the engine is running. the sound remains the same regardless of the speed.

Sounds like a loose belt. Check your tensioner and your belt thickness. Your tensioner could be stuck or bad which would cause your belt to be a little loose and it would slide across the pulleys instead of roll with them and cause a screech sound. Same with belt thickness only the tensioner would be as tight as it gets but the belt would be just thin enough that it wouldn't work properly. Hope that helps you.

Where is the high pressure connection located on the A/C system so I can refill the freon.

You do not want to recharge a/c on high side, look at both a/c hoses coming from a/c compr, there will be a thick one and a thin one, the thin one is high side, and the thick one is low side, recharge a/c at thick hose port.

Fluid leak on inside of rear driver side tire

More than likely it's either break fluid or axel lube. Axel lube will smell really strong and if it's leaking out it will build up on the breaks and make the rear tire skid under heavy breaking. It is also very thick. Break fluid is thin and has almost no smell.

I am being told by repair shop that a screw located too close to the rim makes my tire unrepairable and that I need to buy a new one..does that sound right?

The sidewall of a tire is very thin and for safety reasons should not be repaired. The tread part is thick and contains the steel belt. If you put a plug in the tread section, the steel belt will hold the plyg in place. Once the sidewall is damaged, change the tire.
