Would #9098208284 (fuse 40A) going out cause the car not to start(no juice to start) plus the power windows and radio not to work? Almost every other things Headlights etc work. A wrong battery reversal post cause the horn to honk then no power to start

My entire dash instrument panel went out along with my heater blower. All fuses looked ok. How are these two things connected. Owners manual said to reset breaker which I could not find on my car. Electrical problem ? Any help on this ? Thanks, Jaybird.

I started the car and started to drive. As the temptemperature gauge started to rise above cold, I noticed that it would fluctuate when I hit the gas. When I press on the gas the temperature gauge drops to cold and as I let off the gas it rises back to normal. The same thing when I shift….
After I drove about 14 miles the car over heated. The over flow was full.
I replaced the radiator and thermostat. Could the cause of this be a faulty temperature sensor? Please help.

2007 Toyota Highlander with 2.4L engine. AC Compressor shot. Mechanic wants $900 to do complete job. Sounds about right, but I dont have the scratch. I am fairly mechanical. I know there are “tricks to the trade” with replacing AC compressors. Would anyone be able to provide “detailed” instructions or reference a “detailed” video on how to replace the compressor, crossing all the “T’s and dotting all of the “I”‘s? Thank you.

I’m trying to remove the oil filter cap I have the right tool but even with a lot of torque the cap is not moving I’m going counter-clockwise should I try tapping the ratchet with a hammer. I don’t want to damage the plastic cap. Is this a normal problem?

My car had a misfire, rough idling and unstable rmp plus stalling. i took it to the workshop and they sealed the EGR which helped. The misfire reduced significantly and idling smoothed out however the rmp instability is still there…sometimes drops too low to about 250 with vibration this is however intermittent. to raise the rmp i need to step on the accelerator and it improves. Stalling has happened only once since. What could be the problem?
