How hard is it to replace a seat motor on a 98 Grand AM GT? How much do they cost? should I try looking at the junkyards maybe?

This is going to be impossible to diagnose online or over the phone. You will need to take it into a repair shop. That being said, is it a Turbo or non-turbo? Does the loss of power happen when it's cold or hot or both?
Thanks, I guess it would be rather hard. It does happen in both hot and cold. It is a 2003 Protege ET GS. So i am not sure if it's turbo or not. I would guess not.

It's not a turbo. The 2005.5 MazdaSpeed Protege is the only turbo.

I want to sell my car. Best way to go about it quickly? I put an ad on craigslist a week or two ago, got one guy to come look, but didn't hear back, probably because my stupid hood decided not to open when he came to look at it. Happened once before, just needed some wd40, but of all times. Anyway....98 Civic EX Coupe, 102k miles, could use a new muffler, bumper scratches from living in the city, otherwise engine and trans are just dandy.But yeah, what do you think the easiest way to get it sold would be?

Heh...one of my favorite commercials a few years ago was the one with the douche in the huge hummer-ish thing talking on his cellphone. All I remember from it is the douche says that his is gunmetal right as he crashes into something.

What sort of transmission maintenance do you recommend. My car is a 2000 Jetta VR6 Automatic with 92K KM's and both my owner's manual and Volkswagen say that maintenance isn't necessary but that just doesn't sound right.

\As a past Jetta and GTI owner...the best maintenance is to get a new car that is not a VW.

Thanks for the TSB list brvheart, I might call on it someday.What's the story with the car companies not sharing trouble code information with independent garages. The Volkswagen dealership that services my car has treated me fairly and gone out of their way a few times to help me but I always wonder if I would be better finding an independent garage and maybe save some money but I'm not confident that they will have all of the information that the dealership has and the familiarity with my car type. The dealership I use is probably the largest Volkswagen/Audi dealer in Canada if that makes any difference.

Dealers are always the most expensive way to go. Alot of garages specialize in foriegn cars and have most of the equipment for working on them. Unfortunately whenever I need to get a VW fixed it's always expensive, always have to get parts from the dealer and the majority of the time take it to them since they are quirky.I recently sold a VW Beetle to a girl and a few days later the check engine light came on. She took it to a dealer and they wanted over $800 for a Mass Air Flow Sensor and a secondary pump. I got the MAFS from the dealer for $200 and after checking the secondary pump was fine and we wereable to put it in ouselves. (I run an independent used car lot)

There are independent places that have the equipment, but not a lot of them. Specialized equipment is expensive and there is little return, unless the shop is very very busy. That being said, many national brands, like AAMCO transmission or Cottmans will have the equipment to diagnose most codes, but from there it gets complicated. The VW specifically requires a special transmission fluid that is dealer only and costs our customers something like $35-40 / QUART!!!!

Thanks for the info Randy and Brvheart.I guess I'm lucky that the dealership I deal with seems to have a very customer friendly attitude and I've never had the feeling that they're asking to do work that isn't necessary and in fact went to bat for me with Volkswagen to get about $1,000 in repairs covered for me 6 months after my warranty was over.I guess having 5 Volkswagen dealerships within 10 miles of me leads to competition amongst them even if a lot of work can't be done by most independent garages.
