    CV Axle - Replace both at the same time or just do one?

    On deceleration, with a slight right turn, we get a pretty loud grumbling noise that I believe is the CV axle. I don't see the parts to rebuild the axle so now I am shopping for a GKN or Raxle replacement. Should I do both sides while I am down there or just the one that failed? Car has 129k...

    A/C Clutch not engaging , fans not turning on......FCM?

    I've looked through that A/C Troubleshooting guide and it's a bit over my head. I can turn a wrench but when it comes to electrical/multimeters I seem to cause more harm than good. I did test for voltage at the G65 sensor. Nothing on the positive side, the white middle wire doesn't put out any...

    Hello, My A/C fans are not spinning and my A/C compressor is not engaging so I suspect I am low on R134a/Freon. However, when I hook up my gauge to the low side line, either my gauge is broken or I'm not getting a reading. Is there something I am missing?

    Front doors won't open unless I push on them first... what to adjust?

    Started with my drivers side door and then my passenger side door (both within a couple months).
