• Can I cancel insurance on a car that is financed?

    I'm leaving the country for three months and cannot attend to my vehicle for an additional three months after that. I have arranged for relatives to care for the car, crank it, and drive it around occasionally.

    I'm leaving the country for three months and cannot attend to my vehicle for an additional three months after that. I have arranged for relatives to care for the car, crank it, and drive it around occasionally. I'm curious to know if I could cancel the insurance during this time but continue to pay the car off? I have Geico, by the way. My financial leasing agreement states I need comprehensive but I'm just curious if there's any common loopholes I could look into.

    I purchased a stolen/cloned vehicle in March. The police found out and inspected the car and took it away from me. This was a couple of months ago. He said the police will want a statement from me (Like contact details of the seller. What he looks like... ect.) The police haven't been in contact which shows me they do not care. I have located the seller and he's currently selling another vehicle. Should I meet him and citizens arrest him? I'm big and he's small so it can easily be done. Thoughts?

    Hello, So to start I am in college going for nursing, I pay my tuition, rent and all the other college bills like books and utilities groceries and such. Well my trucks suspension went out and they are saying is $2100 dollars to fix. I am getting a second opinion and the guy I know says it shouldn’t be that much. The thing is, my truck is a 1999 Chevy Silverado and I don’t want to keep pouring all this money into a broken car over and over like I’ve been doing. How can I afford all this. I don’t know what to do.

  • Car battery only holds about 10.5 volt charge. Cables are tight. car runs once started, but battery seems to be dying.?

    Tried to get battery looked at at Autozone, the guy said it's only showing about 10.47 volts. I asked if he could check the alternator, but his computer said no because the battery wasn't 12V. The guy said only way to check alternator with low battery is to take alternator out of car. Can't do that. So... show more

The guy said only way to check alternator with low battery is to take alternator out of car. Can't do that. So the car barley turns over and it seems to be getting weaker each day. The place where we bought the battery said it's the cables, but I tightened those suckers up good. I personally think it's the battery, it was a refurb to begin with, but my daughter has only had it about 6 months. I'm debating whether to just buy another battery or have a mechanic look at it. Which of course we can't really afford that.

  • Chirping/squealing noise help?

    Best answer: Get a $15 engine stethoscope so you can find the noisy bearing and not blow major $$$ on needless parts. That water pump is $250, why would you replace it for no reason?

    Best answer: Get a $15 engine stethoscope so you can find the noisy bearing and not blow major $$$ on needless parts.
    That water pump is $250, why would you replace it for no reason? I pity you, your wallet must be really deep.
    After all that $ spent, then you'll find out the noise is from the A/C clutch bearings most likely after the idler pulleys.

    * Those pricey LS engine water pumps are good for ~ 250K miles, I have never had to replace one that failed.
    Sometimes the alternator rear bearing will squeal under heavy load at sub zero temp's, hit it with the stethoscope!
    Down low on the passenger side is the lower idler and A/C clutch, both can be shaft hit with the stethoscope probe.
    Make sure the A/C compressor drive shaft isn't seized up, that will make the belt skip and jump like a monkey barrel.

    So i bought my 2013 dodge dart on march 31 2018. 2 weeks after the sun visor broke off and the dealer said they cannot do anything about it. Then i found out the lights on the back seat of the car is broken.Then a few months later i was told i need transmission fluid. I get that taken care of then a month later i needed new brakes around the same time my transmission was acting up and the check engine light came on and a message popped up saying i needed to service the transmission. They said there was nothing wrong. Then the same thing happened again a week later and they sent me to a dodge dealer to check the problem they suspected it was the TCM. The dodge dealer contacted me and said it was the TCM and the valve body that needs to get replaced. And they wanna charge me 3500. So i called the bank and let them know what was going on so im waiting for a call. So do i have a lemon? I only had the car for roughly 4 months. Thanks !!!!

    I have a 2002 ford fiesta 1.3 and it always overheats the fan is constantly on even when just the electrics are on and it takes about 20 seconds for it to turn off when engine switched off.  The fan switch, thermostat and coolant reservoir bottle have all been replaced. And still nothing had changed.  I drained the radiator today until clear water was running through it... replaced the water with coolant but still it overheats.  There are no leaks I can see. And the heating in the car doesn t work.  Anyone have any ideas.  Thanks in advance.
