Re: Is engine seized?

Original starter? If original, it may be worn out but before concluding starter failure, some things need to be checked first - main power and distributing it. How old is the battery? Is it fully...

I avoid speculating, agreeing or disagreeing on you're conclusions when there's more to test to verify whether U2105 is contributing to this problem or not. Testing with expected results for me is...

Re: Help - Vue 2005 115K miles - 2.2L 4 C Vrt

Re: Brakes go to floor but stop, no missing fluid

I agree. If careful inspection to all four corners don't reveal any brake fluid leaks, the master cylinder piston bore and seals are worn. Replace and perform a full brake system flush and bleed...

Re: 2006 ion p0326

Follow owner's manual guidelines on when to replace parts. As long as the check engine light remains off, the emissions system is fine. Regular spark plugs tend to wear down due to pre-existing...

Re: Urgent! Fuel issue!
