• Is it okay to switch or mix regular and synthetic oil in a new car?

    I just bought a brand new car a little while back and now I need to get an oil change (5000 miles). What I don't know is, is what kind of oil is in the car. Does it matter what type of oil is used?

    Driving the other night the car randomly bucked badly and the lights cut out for a second and my voltage dropped from 14 to 12. Checked once I got home and the fuse on the alternator power wire was blown. I replaced the fuse and went to reconnect the battery but now the cable is arcing badly on the battery. I added a grounding cable to the alternator as well as the engine and no difference. Checked all other wiring for shorts/bad grounds but traced the issue to the alternator power wire which is brand new as is the alternator. What could be causing this?

  • Excess pressure in cooling system and overheating?

    My 2001 Jeep GC 4.7 seems to have developed an issue with building excess pressure and cracking the radiator. I've twice had to replace the radiator after it builds pressure and "blows" spewing fluid and steam everywhere. Currently I just replaced radiator #3 myself and the problem seems to have resided. Starting it up and at letting it sit at idle, it eventually begins to overheat - simultaneously the pressure builds making the hoses feel rock hard. After I turn it off, let it cool and remove the cap, it very loudly pops off with abnormally excess force. If I would leave it running, I'm certain it would crack the radiator and overheat just as before. Why is this happening and why is it recurring? There's no funny noises from the cooling system, no smoke from anything, including exhaust, no leaks. This is coupled with a recurring power steering pump failure as well if that's any clue. Thx for any insight!

  • Auto body shop denied replacing my tail light, and now it causes a transmission problem.?

    I got hit from the left rear side two months ago, and I was not the fault. The insurance directed to an auto body shop, Caliber Collision for repairing it.

    I got hit from the left rear side two months ago, and I was not the fault. The insurance directed to an auto body shop, Caliber Collision for repairing it. Now my transmission is jerking from stop and go. I brought it to the dealer, and people said it was the replaced left tail light causing the problem. So I called the auto body shop asked about it, they refused to admit replacing it and said they only took it out and put it back, so it is not under warranty. It does show "remove/install" only on the bill I got from the body shop, but I did not notice until now. I mean, who will care if the tail light is replaced as long as it works, right? I called my insurance again, and they said they would investigate but it does not seem helpful at all. So what should I do now? Nobody is wanting to take responsibility. Thank you in advance for answering this question.
