Instead of car listing websites only using (MANUAL) and (AUTOMATIC) for their transmission filters, it should be DOES THIS HAVE A CLUTCH PEDAL (YES) (NO).

Too many people trying to pawn off SMGs and DCTs as true manuals. Regardless of the design of the transmission, if the person isn't necessary to shift the gears and get it moving then it isn't a true manual. Can I get an Amen.

The old battery, wasn't kept on a charger. I haven't tried testing the voltage when cranking. Nothing happens with the key in the ignition so I assume there's no electricity getting to the car somewhere.

I wanted that car for the past 15
years

sadly there is no way i will ever own one
there are only 2 examples in my country cheapest of which is 150.000 dollars
Importing the car would not be possible since the government will tax it based on the value
which will be around the same price as mentioned earlier

the gasoline prices are the highest in the world in my country that v8 would cause a shortage at my local gas station

you're using the caliper piston as a brake pad, and that will be very expensive

>>17108782
top fucking kek. thats the brake pad, the brakes didnt work because you used all the volume of the master cylinder to push the caliper piston out enough to compensate for the missing brake pad, thus using the piston as the brake pad. it might already be fucked even if you only used the brakes once, but calipers on a delivery vehicle probably arent very expensive anyways.

I've been to 3 mechanics and 1 front end shop. They've all said everything looks fine. Well it's not.

-My steering is too stiff and heavy.
-When I brake, I hear a creaking/clunk more pronounced when turning (ONLY in Drive)
-I can feel every single bump on the road and my front struts squench/squeak on big ones
-My braking seems to take longer than usual and It feels like I'm slightly nosediving but I could be imagining.
-Highway speeds there is vibration

I've been told it is my strut mounts or steering rack. Pretty much impossible for it to be rack considering the symptoms. I'm thinking the struts themselves. I've been on every single forum imaginable and 3 mechanics.

Please Help. It's a 2008 Impala with only 66,000 miles.

How would this correlate with me feeling road bumps and creaking only when braking and turning? It doesn't creak if I'm just cruising. Steering is pretty normal in reverse and neutral too.
>>
Could bad struts/mounts/springs cause this to happen?

Have you considered that it might be several worn out/busted nylon bushings in your front end assembly?

>replace struts

There you go. That should fix most of your problems.
>>
>>17106993
If it creaks while you brake then you need new shims around your brake pads. Steering is heavy cause your alignment is fucked.

Next time your check engine light goes on, try bringing it to your local parts store and scanning it yourself. Then google the code with the make and model and year of your shitbox and take a crack at it. Do your next oil change or brake pad replacement. Google and youtube are actually great resources for "how to" type shit in this regard. Sack up, stop being a scared little bitch, dry off your vag and get your faggot ass under the hood

My piece of shit B15 Sentra has been acting up on me, any help with a diagnosis would be greatly appreciated. Car has incredibly sluggish acceleration past 3k RPMs, and during about 3-5k RPMs the engine makes a funky BLBLBLBLBLBLLBLBLB sputtering noise. I'm a big newfag when it comes to getting under the hood, so I'm pretty lost.

Check and wait for an exact fender to show up in a junkyard, 40 dollars at the most. I wouldn't waste time or money when replacing is foolproof & will be faster than repairing while only require some sockets and maybe some body trim screws.
