Some general questions about my 96 Bonne SE
Hey guys. Wow I had just finished typing this whole post and I accidentally pressed a button and it all got erased so now I need to re-type it... Anyway, I am 20 years old and relatively new to working on cars, so I have a little knowledge here and there, but nothing too extensive. There'* a few problems that have been bothering my recently. Forgive me if these are too general.
First and foremost... I'm getting a HUD light, Check Engine. It'* on constantly now. Thing is, I replaced the entire engine a few months ago after it died on me... So I'm assuming it'* not something to do with the engine? I don't have an OBD-II on me at the moment, so I can't double check the code, i wanna say 440.. Heard it might have something to do with the gas cap... but I don't know about that one. I've gotten gas many a time since then. Haha. Not sure though. I knew it included "Evap", if that helps. I can take it in and double check if you need to know more. Anyway, it'* been bothering me because I was getting that same code before I even replaced the engine, and it would turn on for a little while and then turn off. Now it'* just permanately on.
Secondly, I'm getting a squeaking sound coming from what sounds like the driver'* side front tire. I can only hear it when I'm coasting or at slower speeds. At high speed and stopped, it doesn't squeak at all. The brakes on my car are relatively new, so I don't THINK that'* the problem... I could be wrong I guess.
Another small problem that has always bothered me, is that whenever I do anything involving my power locks or power windows, my lights seem to dim quite significantly. I have a brand new battery in my car, so I'm assuming this is a problem with the entire electrical system? I have heard this is a semi-common problem. Would getting a capacitor help?
That'* all I can think of at the moment that has been bothering me. Anyway, any help is good help. Thanks.
