My front driver's side drain is clogged after I emptied some water down it. But my headliner and A-pillar are bone dry. The leak is coming from under the dashboard on the driver's side by the...

I was hoping it would be something easy to pinpoint like a gasket. I'd rather not replace a ton of stuff since it would take too long. Is there a common gasket that fails?

What could this leak be? Pics

I noticed this leak when changing my oil a few weeks ago. I want to say it's the power steering system, but I have no idea. Whatever it is, it doesn't leak much yet. Maybe a drop or two a week. ...

No lights came on at all. Went for another drive just now and it seemed fine. Couldn't recreate the problem. Maybe it was a fluke.

Has your car ever stalled on you after leaving the gas station?

My car has never stalled before, and it did it for the first time today after I got about a half-tank of gas. I pulled out of the gas station, was waiting at the light, and the car just turned off...

I noticed a small leak under my car when pulling out, and after getting under it and checking things out, I saw some coolant right where the lower radiator hose connects to the radiator.

Overfilling would not matter since the radiator cap acts as a pressure relief valve if there is ever a need to expel any coolant. My guess as to why most expansion tanks fail is due to an old, worn,...

Do you have any overhang on your passenger side? Do the wipers reach past the windshield at all when they reach the top (completely vertical position)?

Do they still wipe the same area? The driver's side wiper you bought sounds really small. I'd imagine the entire track left by your old wipers isn't covered completely.

Stick with OEM control arms and bushings. You said you wanted a smooth ride, so this will be your best bet. Anything else will most likely uncover hidden vibrations you never knew you had.

You can use any fluid that meets Dexron III specs. Redline D4 ATF is the preferred substitute I think.

That makes sense. I was wondering if it would have been something less obvious that could have scratched it like a part hidden inside the door. Thanks for the tip.
