    2004 Honda Accord LX single cd player backlight off

    I doubt anyone will have an answer because (as I am sure you know) most people just replace the entire radio for around $100-200 since it is easier and less expensive than to pay for the repair. I do understand that you want to fix it yourself and I applaud you for that, so lets hope somebody...

    Sounds normal and OK. Do you agree or do you still think there is a problem?

    What does hold on hills mean? And what changes? All I see above is adding Dr T.

    79 El Camino brake issue pedal goes way down

    I agree with all of the above advice. Should be easy to find the wet spot and fix it.

    Outlook Acadia Traverse...best way to remove engine

    It would have to be free before I would want to dig into it and possibly discover major problems that would make it unusable like the one you took out.

    Whirring sound coming from the front end

    After you do Nick's test, you can also put one front wheel up at a time with a good jack stand under the frame and take it up to speed to see if the noise is on one side or the other or the same on both sides.

    Whirring sound coming from the front end

    Can you make the noise by reving the engine while parked? Or does the car have to be moving?

    Odd question from my uncle. Kit Kar??

    All the ones I have seen and driven are WAY to much work and never turn out to be a good running, steering, etc. car. If you have to ask about them, then I suggest you have no idea about how difficult and expensive they can be. They are for the serious hobby builder. Then when they are...

    CV joints 05' Corolla

    Your description of thumping and 35 mph makes me want to suggest a bad tire. Replace each wheel and tire with the spare, one at a time, and see if the problem disappears.

    Or just jack up one side at a time and run the wheel that is not on the ground.
