This topic is pretty covered, but instead of using normal air, ask your tyre dealer to put nitrogen in your tyres. The compounds are a lot thickers and don't leak out as much as air does. My weekly air pressure checks are now every 3 months which it will only go down by 3 PSI.
Power steering, check for leaks and if it hasn't been replaced in 2 years then book it for a service. My Holden 2001 used to do it under hard lock and you could hear it struggled if it was really cold and did it really fast.
I'm thinking there could be two possibilities here: One of the constant velocity (CV) joints may be going bad, where it it binding so much during a turn, it could lock up and cause vehicle to stop. While backing up and then going forward again allows the joint to release and thus the car can go forward again. The differential in the transmission may be ...
Worn out piston rings, or other issues causing low compression.
A simple explanation would be along the lines of a faulty power steering pump, or the power steering pressure relief controls not releasing full lock pressure. If full pressure is not relieved, the high pressure can act as a brake on the engine by forcing the power steering pump to work at maximum pressure it can reach and loading the engine.
Your first bet is to give it a tune up. That would involve changing the following items: Spark Plugs O2 Sensors (whether codes are present or not) Cleaning the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor Cleaning the upper intake tract (using a Seafoam treatment or the like) Reset the learning state of the Engine Control Module (ECM - computer). You do this by unplugging ...
It might be that you need to change your spark plugs.
Test the old horn by applying power directly. If it blows, you know it's the wiring between the relay (what makes the clicking noise) and the horn itself. If it doesn't blow, you need to replace it. Now for a very basic question: how do I apply power to the horn directly? I am not experienced in this area. First find the horn. Second detach the main ...
First of all, the short amount of driving you do prior to getting them refilled is not going to cause the tire itself any problems. The biggest problem you'll see with tires which are run low is the amount of heat build-up in the rubber. Not only is the low pressure not really that low, the distance you drive is not enough to cause you worry. Secondly, I'd ...
There is a difference between an "OEM" new never programmed FOB and on that has already been linked to a vehicle. That being said there is hope if you have gotten one off EBay that was used. The directions to program the ability to start the car work fine on either the OEM or the used FOB but the smart key (SKS) functions will not program with the ...
