• Car AC Conversion - R-12 recovery help needed?

    I'm converting my car's AC from R-12 to R-134a but cannot find anyone that can evacuate the R-12 from the system here in Colorado. Any ideas? Ideally they need to be near Denver.

  • 1995 Nissan Quest Hard Shift from 1st to 2nd gear?

    I have a 1995 Nissan Quest with automatic transmission. It shifts hard from first to second but fine in all other gears. I was told it could be a bad transmission mount. Could that be the problem or am I looking at a new transmission?

How difficult is it to replace this part and how expensive is the part? I've never done one of these before but I'm handy with a wrench and can do many "simple" repairs. If it involves tearing down an engine or pulling a transmission, I cannot do that. Please help me figure out how severe this problem is. THANKS!

  • 1995 Nissan Pathfinder loses power once it gets warm?

    I have a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 5 speed manual four wheel drive. The car starts and runs great but as soon as it gets warm, the engine loses power and then dies. It does not overheat. Mechanic said it's the fuel pump but that makes NO sense. Any ideas? If possible I would like to fix it myself. Thanks.
