    • 2009 FWD SXT, tie rods are worn. Does the steering rack have to be removed to replace the inner tie rods? Doesn't appear to be enough room to get the removal tool in due to the heat shield so close to the floor and rack.  Help!!

    • also size of which engine ? fwd or awd?
    • would have to say the dealership would be the best advice to find the correct bolts without having  one in your hand to compare them, but after removing them send out for some from the local parts store
    • Hi, my wife's 2010 Journey, is intermittently just clicking once, when trying to start in park. Shifting it to neutral will get it to start. I am going to swap out the Neutral safety switch this weekend.  I looked at the pan and the bolt heads are in rough shape.   I cannot find the thread pitch and length. Does anyone know what the right bolts are, So I can get new ones ? Thank you 
    • Not had that problem but, in reality, $120.00 in not a lot when you consider the time and expense of trial and error. Ask the shop if the diagnostic charge is applied toward the repair. Most shops follow that practice.   In the end, you have to weight the pros and cons of having the brake system repaired once and working correctly versus your skill and confidence that you can do the task yourself cheaper, and get it correct the first time. Having the correct code and the cost and ease of changing the part yourself vs a shop that you trust and the time that you save.   Good luck.
    • If all of the oil in your engine had gone into the coolant system, your car would be knocking and ticking for just a bit before catastrophic damage occurred. What jkeaton has suggested is far more likely. Transmission oil will float on the coolant and make it look dark, murky, and frothy in the coolant reservoir and the radiator. Your radiator is divided into two parts. Coolant flows in the large main section. The transmission has lines that connect to one side of the radiator. The radiator is separated internally. This separation will develop a leak that allows the transmission oil to seep into the main part of the radiator. This is not uncommon in an older car.   Don't drive it like this. Your transmission and coolant will both run hotter than normal.   Get the coolant system pressure checked as suggested. Also pull the engine oil dipstick and the oil fill cap. Look for any light colored froth or slime. That is a sign of coolant in the engine oil from a head gasket or worse. If the coolant and radiator system check fine, then you would have a leak-down test done on the engine. That would find any issues with the heads or gaskets. At this point, that sounds unlikely. One step at a time.
    • Hi, my car brake suddenly start sinking, at the beginning I had to bush twice, I left the car for two days, the brake completely sank. I left the car for 5 days, the brake starting working as should be. I start driving it more but the brake sank twice only. the dealer connected to OBD2 and got error code C10822f and mentioned it might be caused by ABS or vacuum pump or sensor or brake booster and to know which one they have to inspect the car and I have to pay $120 which I find it is a lot for just checking. I searched online and found the error code C108 is for sensors but I could not find C10822f. any one had the same issue or same error code? 
    • most systems do use some oil but since i an not a tech cant really answer just make sure you are using the right freon
    • Well the gremlins are active in my 2011 Mainstreet. I need to change out out one of the A/C hose's. The question I have is do I need to add some oil back to the system after the change? I know I will need to pull a vacuum before re-charging the system just not sure about oil addition.
