I had my clutch replaced about 2 yrs. Ago as it was slipping. Well, it is slipping again and I’m thinking that the repair should have lasted longer than 2yrs. and I want to confront the mechanic who did the job. Am I right, or could I be doing something to cause this? I’ve only had the car 5 yrs.The car is a 5 speed and I have driven a standard for 30 yrs.!

On a 3.0 liter engine, I mis-routed the knock sensor plug to the passenger side. (under intake manifold). After installing engine, I found that the knock sensor wire SHOULD have been routed to the drivers side. Hence, the wiring harness is about 7 inches short of plugging in. Must I remove the intake and re-route the wire, or can I simply cut and extend the wiring harness wire without worrying about causing a knock sensor malfunction?

on a trip at 55 miles per hour, my car started skipping . When sped up to 65 mph it smoothed out. In park it idles rough, the tach moves between 1100 rpm and 2000 rpm back and forth.

I tried to install led taillights but the didn’t work but for a few seconds. Now the taillights and running lights don’t work. And it won’t shift out of park. How do I fix this?

I am working on a 1998 Rav4 where the Battery Terminal was Removed while the Engine was Running to check the alternator. The car started malfunctioning (windshield wiper came on – lights flashed etc…)
The AM2 and SMS Airbag Acc fuses blew and no matter what I disconnect associated with these circuits they still continue to blow.
Has anyone else experienced this? I’ve been told it could be the BCM or ECM but I don’t know how to test for this.
Thank you,
