It's most likely two separate circuits, and two separate issues. Your interior lights, as you pointed out, work when you jiggle the switch. So, if you pull the switch out, and connect the wires directly, does the interior light stay on constant? If so, it's the switch. As for the headlights: Stupid, obvious, obligatory question: You've tried replacing the ...

As was pointed out, the outer diameter isn't quite the same, but it's not a major problem. The sole distinction I would be worried about would be load range. For example, an E350 van most likely wants to have a LT, E load rated set of tires installed. However, if the tires on your Savanna are P rated (i.e. not Light Truck), I would not install those on your ...

https://tiresize.com/calculator/ Diameter is 4% smaller Width is about 9% smaller Since you are going to a smaller tire... The speedometer will read higher than your actual speed by about 4% You will not need to worry about rubbing. Traction may be less, but should be sufficient. I am not familiar with tire pressure monitoring systems, so I cannot comment ...

The only reason for replacing both at the same time is so that they brake evenly. This is more essential on the front of the vehicle. If you were to stamp on the brakes in an emergency, you wouldn't want the car to swerve into oncoming cars because the brake on one side of your car worked better than the other. Edit - make that 3 reasons if you add ...

There are two main reasons: So that both sides of the brake equation are equal. This means they are both starting at the same place again. When you purchase brake pads, they come in sets for both sides. Since you have to purchase new brake pads anyway, you should put them on there or it's a waste of money.

Given the description of the problem, I think the comments are exactly right, this is an issue with your transmission. Now you need to determine if it's just fluid level, or if there is something more serious going on. Couple of things you can do, first, follow the instructions in the comment by @DucatiKiller. That will get you into the proper fill level. ...

But if it's my starter shouldn't I hear a noise Not if the starter solenoid is stuck. This is the piece of metal that connects the circuit and allows the starter motor to receive power. It's usually pulled into place magnetically, thereby connecting two terminals and powering the motor. When solenoids age, they tend to stick, or, in some cases, ...
