Car would not start. Had to jump start. Dealer replaced alternator and battery. Battery was previously replaced 06/03/99. Oil light above oil pressire gauge came on while driving, and oil pressure gauge moved up and down erratically. Dealer found no problem. Battery cover and was burnt/was brittle and had a white ashey look to it. Engine produces a lot of heat. Dealer replaced cover and tray. Temperature gauge reads higher than normal. Dealership recalibrated ipc for temp gauge. Temp gauge still reads the same as before. Ticking sounds from left and right sides of dash when heat is on. Dealer replaced fan motor twice. Ticking sounds still there and now there is no heat. Disc brake pad indicator lamp did not illuminate when pads needed replacing. Had to have front brake job and replace sensors for indicator lamp. Dealership said sensors got damaged when pads were worn down past the sensors.
