Very quickly after I got done repairing the burnt coil problem, I had to replace alternator and shorty after that I hit something on the highway with my right front about where the LF side marker light is. It caused $5100 damage. Needs headlight, LF fender, LF door, etc. Shortly after that the battery light started intermittently coming on. Sometimes it would go out if you shut car off, and upon restart it would go out, but sometimes it would run down the battery. Just the other day when the battery went down the positive cable where the terminal end is was so hot it burnt my finger! After it was towed home, I started it and ran it for a hour fine. I believe it has an intermittent short somewhere. I sure wish someone has an idea where the short is??

Replace coolant temperature sensor and cooling fam. I began to have an issue with on of my two cooling fans running at top speed (driver's side) about the middle of June. My mechanic of the past 3 years worked on the repair towards the end of June (I included the exact date on your site). That mechanic moved from Orlando, FL to Naples, FL and the repair that was done did not solve the problem. From several careful observations, I believe the issue is the other fan (passenger side) is dead. I say this because no matter when I lift my hood, that fan is not turning. I'm now searching for a new talented and trustworthy mechanic (a very difficult task) to complete that repair.

Noise from left rear wheel. Had to replace the Hub assembly and arm assembly. NOTE: On 6/3/2007 with 30,873 miles, warranty covered the replacement of the same hub assembly. Requested for front head light to be examined as it still turns off every now and then during night time. Again they could not replicate problem. Unable to diagnose or duplicate problem of temperature gauge going all the way to H. Charged for "diagnostic service". Requested for front head light to be examined as it still turns off every now and then during night time. Again they could not replicate problem. Left rear tire area seems to be making a dull, thumping noise in time with tire rotation. Tech could hear but did not know what was causing it. Thought cv joint or hub bearing but wanted to fix one or the otherto see without being sure..
