    problem #1

    okay in the last month or so my driver side window started to close really slow. then i would have to pull on the window to help it shut. now today it stopped half way and the thing wont budge. i took the door panel off and tried to push the arms but it still won't budge. does anyone know how i can shut it for now and do you think it's the motor that went bad? i have work tomorrow and i really dont think it's a good idea to leave the window half way down all day.

    problem # 2

    okay my second problem is that my car is overheating in traffic, at stop lights or when the car is not driving. when i'm driving the car cools down again. i checked the antifreeze level and it's fine and the hose's have pressure. do you think the radiator might be bad?

    thanks for the help:D

    undo the window fron the arms then push it up and put a stick under it to hold it up , and then make sure your fan is comming on to cool off the car

    the windows may have fallen out of the track, i just had a problem with a 00 si doing the same thing. back in the track slight adjustment and as good as new. as for the overeheating at a light, maybe the thermostat. now i had a blow headgasket on my teg and it did the same thing.

    okay cool i'm gonna do that check tomorrow. I dont think it's the headgasket because the motor was rebuilt not too long ago but hey you never know.
