If you don't have a "spare", or second vehicle, yes, that's the way it's done. You just have to "bite the bullet" and deal with it. Some dealerships have vehicles they may let you use until yours is repaired IF they are doing the repairs. This sometimes is policy, other times it depends on how your relationship with said dealer is. And the faster they get your vehicle done, the sooner they get the loaner back.

All I can suggest is you 'carefully' read through the original motorplan small print as that is where you'll find what benefits your entitled to.

SOURCE: 04 dodge intrepid sxt not picking up fuel, wont start

You may have to replace the fuel filter, the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump.

First I would check the fuel pressure and also check for leaks. If there are no leaks and the pressure is fine than your fuel injectors are probably clogged or you may have an ignition problem or even a compression problem.

If you don't have good pressure and there are no leaks I would first replace the fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator. If problem still exists I would then check and replace the fuel pump.

If you need any help in any one of these procedures just post it and I will give you step by step instructions.

SOURCE: AirbAg light Stays on! faulty!

I had the same thing happen to my 2002 Ford Escape. It would blink for a couple of minutes and then stay on everytime I turned on the car. A friend of mine who was mechanic thought it might be the airbag sensor connector under the driver's seat. In my case, that's exactly what it turned out to be.
Try this and see if it fixes your problem. It worked for me....
Check under your driver's seat. There will be a connector underneath. Unplug it and check both connections (the car is off of course). Over time they get corroded and dirty. I took a cotton swab and cleaned out the prongs within the plug. Bend them just a tiny bit so that when you reconnect them, the prongs will have better contact. After you reconnect them, turn on your car and hopefully it took care of your problem. My problem hasn't come back ever since.
Hope this helps...

CAR won't start when it's hot

Check the Fuel Pump Relay. behind the battery next to the OVP Over Voltage Protection Relay. They do fail. Occasionally the engine will not start when hot. This becomes more frequent until you are left stranded. If you are comfortable with jumping two terminals you can jump terminals 7 & 8 test the relay. if the car starts your Fuel pump relay is bad.

Car wouldn't start .told crankshaft sensor faulty / replaced but still not start & smells as if flood cab

Before you go for anything, try the following: 1) check if there is any spark goes from distributor or coil to leads .
2) check if your car fitted with injection system,if the injectors are spraying correct or are not. If not means that too much fuel in the combustion chamber and kill the spark.
3)remove the spark plugs - after you start for couple of times - if are dry or wet. if are wet probably you have problem with the injector or spark lead,coil or distributor.
4) blocked catalytic converter.
5) ECU ( Electronic Control Unit.) faulty.

1995 C220 Car starts up fine, 2-3 min. later engine dies, wait couple minutes stars again. ( New Battery, new Alternataor)

I own a 95 c220, & it had the same problem, it would just quit running while I was driving it, almost as if it was running out of gas, or stalling. The MB dealer said that there was no code, & that there was nothing they could do. So I found a mechanic in germany online that knew what it was. He said to change the Fuel Relay, if you look in your car manual, under relays & fuses, it should show you where its located. Mine was in the trunk on the right side of the spare tire, and it was Green. It was about 50 dollars from the dealer & they had to order it. The mechanic also told me, to be safe, to also change the Main Engine Relay, which in my car was located on the passenger side, under the hood, close to the windshield. It was white with a clear top. It was about 75 dollars from the dealer, and it showed in my manual where it was located, so I was able to undo it myself. Its simple you just unplug em, & plug in the new ones. And I've never had a problem since, & changed em about 8 years ago, it might be worth looking into. If your Fuel relay is bad and its malfunctioning, it will stop gas from going to the engine, making it quit running. Hope this helps

Car jerks with loud knock when shifting from park to drive

Ok the knock is your flex discs on the drive shaft are bad along with the carrier bearing. Replace before you get stranded or it comes loose.
Fuel distributor may need work if it is hard to start when warm, Replace OVP relay by battery also, its always an issue.
