I posted a comment. check the motor mounts. that will be the sipilest thing to check. if one is broken or cracked it will cause the engine to shake because there is nothing there holding or absorbing the engine movement......

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus the air compressor was changed and charged abot two months ago, everything worked fine up until about 4 days ago. The temp gauge runs hot when the air is turned on, but normal at...

There are many things that can cause your air conditioner to not be cooling like it should. It could very-well be the radiator cooling fan if your engine is running hot. It could also be the other way around. An engine cooling system problem can cause the air conditioner to not cool properly. It may be low on freon, it may be that your air temperature control door inside the vehicle is not working properly. It could be a whole list of things.

Most people don't get "ripped off" by MOST mechanics. (although I cannot deny that it does happen) Many people "think" they are being ripped off because the people at many of the repair facilities are just too busy "making money" to take the time to explain to the customer EXACTLY what they are paying for unless the customer specificly asks. Many customers are too shy or timid to ask, then they think they are being ripped off because they leave not knowing WHAT was done to their car or WHY. All they know is that they paid a lot more than they were wanting to spend. In MOST cases, spending ANYTHING on their cars is more than they WANTED TO. Most of the shop owners or managers will be happy to explain it to you if you ask questions. If they seem to have a problem with that, then you should not do business with them.

I have a 2002 honda accord sedan lx. the transmission is not doing right, and i noticed i dont have to push the button to change from drive 4 to drive 3. also i had a transmission flush 2 months ago...

Shifter in my 99 Honda goes from D4 to D3 without pushing button also. I 'NEVER' recommend flushing transmissions, it will always cause problems. I've been rebuilding transmissions for 25 years now, flushing causes all the buit-up contaminates to stop up the filter, which cannor be changed on Hondas. I have to admit though I get 'ALOT' of work since the introduction of flushing machines. Good luck.

I have a 1991 deville, and it just started overheating about 1 month ago. I put anti freeze in it and when its driven alot or long miles, then it runs hot and the antifreeze is gone.

If the engine fan works and you get good heat from the heater then you could have a bad head gasket. First make sure you dont have a leak somewhere and the car is overheating from low coolant level.

Chevy 350 runs really hot... i have an 81 cutlass with a stock chevy 350 & for some reason it bogs down like it wants to turn off & gets really hot when im parked idleing for more than 10 minutes...

there must be something restricting the water flow. i would check the houses to make sure there are no sharp turns that dont need to be there. next i would upgrade the water pump to make up for the extra hp.
flushing the block is always a good idea too when adding hp because you never know whats inthere.

My 03 G35 is overheating and no heat in the cabin

The thermostat was a good choice however you should go to a service station and get a complete cooling system flush.
your heater core and or radiator could be clogged.

99 v6 camaro overheats and heater not working

My dad used to weld the cracks with JB weld. He would make aV shape line in the crack with a grinder and fill it in. I had a 79 GMC pickup that he fixed. I sold the truck several years later and it never leaked.But then again the heads were cast iron then.If your loosing coolant . That's why your heater is not working and your car . Take it back as WORKFORIT1 suggested and tell them about it.You are the one paying for it.
