Clicking/Grinding while accelerating, 2003 Ford Windstar

I have a 2003 Ford Windstar (FWD, automatic) that after a trip up a switch backed mountain road has started making a clicking/grinding noise. The noise seems to come from front left, and only happens when stepping on the gas pretty good. For example, accelerating up grades, or trying to merge into traffic. In extreme cases, accompanying the clicking is some loss of acceleration, and a little bit of forward/back shuddering. Does not seem tied directly to RPMs, or any specific gear. How can I confirm what's broken? [more inside]

Recommended auto mechanic near Arlington, MA

Do you have a mechanic to recommend near Arlington, MA? My beloved old Volvo has a bunch of little issues that need addressing. I'm in Arlington Heights, but I will go a bit out of my way if anyone has someone reliable, reasonable and fairly timely to recommend.

Worry about my car tail lights or not?

Should I worry about my car tail lights or not? I have a 98 Saturn station wagon (150K+ miles, I've owned it all this time) and today when I took it in for inspection, they told me the brake lights - in fact, all the tail lights - weren't working. Then, 30 seconds later, they worked fine. [more inside]

What's wrong with my car?

2004 Chevy Blazer 4x4 4dr - Sometimes, not always, for the last couple of months when I accelerate my RPMs go up (the engine gets pretty loud but I do not redline) but my car seems to not accelerate very much – Which really sucks on a right on red. It eventually will get up to speed. [more inside]
