What symptoms, dead car, runs bad, what?
well do the tune up, (cars for dummies read that) i didnt name book. sorry.
then scan it , its free to cars and post the DTC errros.
if a sensor is bad, it will tell you. it bad. using codes.
if sensor really is bad replace it, if wires to it bad, fix those..
the CAT if not clogged leave it be, if must pass smog its still last.
next time post engine, can fix them unless you learn what it is.
2.2L or 2.4L??????
LE or GT body>?
see the parts here, no reason to guess where the are.
for free
see engine here, (i guessed size)

scan it and report the codes. or its all just guessing and money down the drain.

mcdevito75 here, Ever since the invention of the AUTOMOBILE, repair shops have been competing for your BUISNESS, whether it"s a SECIALTY SHOP designed on a specific part of the AUTOMOBILE or the GENERAL REPAIR SHOP designed for your AUTO"s all around needs, CHOOSEING one of these REPAIR SHOPs to SERVICE your AUTO takes a liitle work, as the saying goes, IT"s NOT WHAT YOU KNOW,------ IT"S WHO YOU KNOW. ------ This is especially true when it comes to your CAR / SUV, up-keep and service, even if you do all, your own work, you still need an AUTO REPAIR SHOP IN YOUR AREA for STATE INSPECTION, OIL CHANGES, (you need a shop to recycle your old oil) WORK THAT REQUIRES SPECIAL TOOLS AND ABOVE ALL FOR "EMERGENCIES". ----- Here"s HOW TO CHOOSE AN AUTO REPAIR SHOP FOR YOUR CARs / SUVs SERVICEING NEEDS. ------- Look for a 1--2 or 3 man Auto Repair Shop not too far from where you live, (walking distance, in case you have to leave your car / suv) I find these smaller auto repair shops just as friendly, and knowledgeable as the larger, auto repair shop chains and with a HUGE differece, ----- They could "CHARGE LESS MONEY". ----- Shop your area, stop in and say hello, (when they don"t seem to be too busy) ask a question about your CAR / SUV that you know thw answer to, ask for a baseball park figure on a specific repair job, (Front Brakes, Standard Tune up etc.) look for them to be FRIENDLY and HELPFULL, compare prices of a few repair shops in your area, ----- One sure sign of a GOOD SMALLER AUTO REPAIR SHOP, is their ability to do your STATES ANNUAL INSPECTION, It shows this smaller repair shop is Licenced and established, you"ll have your CAR / SUV serviced by PRO"s and you"ll SAVE MONEY TO BOOT.

Have a 2002 4 wheel drive gmc.when I used to get truck would only go into gear when its cold.but still birnx out when its cold mechani. Shop said transmission needs to be rebuilt.

have the fault codes read
take it to an accredited auto transmission shop (assumed it is an auto ) and get a proper diagnosis first and quotes
if the shop didn't bother with the codes to make the box suggestion then I would go to the accredited auto specialist shop
as with some gmc products the manufacturer does not recommend a transmission oil change for the auto, I would check the condition of the oil first as a oil change and filter clean may be all that is needed take the cheap option first

Battery is over charging in 09 infiniti ex35

It is most probably the regulator that is built into the alternator. A simple test that is free can be preformed by your local Walmart with an auto shop. Same goes for any auto zone store.

Where can I find a belt routing diagram for my 1996 ford E-150 van with a 4.9L engine?

There are various parts supply shops such as PepBoys, Napa Auto, Advanced Auto. It depends on what auto shops are near you. They will generally have auto manual books such as Chilton or Haynes. Check them out to see if they have a manual for your vehicle. This should have the diagram in the book.
