    Car smoking/leaking antifreeze a week after repair. Should I get a new mechanic?
    A week ago, I took my car in to get its check engine light checked out. They replaced the thermostat and cleaned the gasket. Last night, I turned on my car and it started shaking. I turned it off, turned it back on, and it was fine. I drove it a bit, got to ...

    About a week ago, the check engine light turned on in the cold morning, I got it checked by a mechanic and scanner code "PO139" Oxygen censor 1/2. Then I went to Autozone and they diagnosed the same problem, so I bought an O2 sensor to replace it my self. I took ...

      You replace all front or upstream oxygen sensors at 100,000 miles
      or in your case when they fail

      Leave the rear sensors

      If you raise up the vehicle & put it on jack stands you can
      get under it & unplug the sensors

    Can the timing belt be changed without removing or loosening the bolt to the crank shaft?
    Had my timing belt replaced. Drove away from repair shop and the crank shaft cracked where the bolt screws in. Mechanic said he did not remove or loosen the crankshaft bolt and did not cause the problem.

      There must be 2 dozen You Tube Videos you can watch

      I just watched 4 of them

      The 19mm bolt has to come out of the crankshaft & the
      pulley has to come off or you can not get to the
      lower crank timing belt pulley to get the belt on & off

      So they lied to you--you sort of know that I guess

      Watch the video

      Now the motor comes out & the crankshaft gets replaced

      I guess your next move would be a attorney.let that person deal with
      the shop I would suggest you don't have any contact with them

      I once owned a shop,so I won't take sides,I know how it will go from here

    Can the timing belt be replaced without removing or loosening the bolt to the camshaft pulley?
    After the belt was replaced I paid for the service and picked the car up from the shop. I drove about 4 miles and heard a pop sound then a fluttering sound and the car died. The mechanic had the car towed back to his shop. He showed me where the camshaft cracked ...

      You replaced a couple of parts

      Were those parts tested for a reason & fail a test?

      Apparently you did not determine those parts good or
      bad,were the problem & just hoped for the best !

      Need more info on the problem & some test results to
      continue with any ideas

    What could cause a sudden multiple misfire code to come up and car not crank?

      Cylinder Misfires can happen at any time- even when cranking

      When you say not crank- your using the wrong term

      You mean it will crank or turn over but Not start

      You can only have a NO CRANK OR NO START Condition

      So I guess you failed to have reference material to follow or make a diagram or mark
      your wires & cap locations & you have the wires on in the wrong place

      It seems that you may be detailing a collapsed upper right motor mount. If you can get this vibration to go away intermittently as you sit still in drive and power brake it or in reverse power brake it then that would confirm the bad mount. Look visually at the upper right mount and see if two parts of the mount are just slightly touching each other where these two parts should have a gap.
