    public abstract class Vehicle
    {
    	private String powerSource;
    	private int wheels;
    	protected int price;
    	public Vehicle(String powerSource, int wheels);
    	{
    		setPowerSource(powerSource);
    		setWheels(wheels);
    		setPrice();
    	}
    	public String getPowerSource()
    	{
    		return powerSource;
    	}
    	public int getWheels()
    	{
    		return wheels;

    	}
    	public void setPowerSource(String source)
    	{
    		powerSource = source;
    	}
    	public void setWheels(int wls)
    	{

    You've got a misplaced semicolon on the Vehicle constructor's top line. Get rid of it.

    Constructors should look like:

    public class MyClass {
      public MyClass(SomeType someParameter)
      {
         // stuff goes here
      }
    }

    Not:
    public class MyClass {
      public MyClass(SomeType someParameter);
      {
         // stuff goes here
      }
    }

    Notice the difference?

    Nothing simple about it. Sometimes you just need a fresh pair of eyes to see with. That's why I sometimes find that if I sleep on a tough problem, I can solve it in the morning with my "fresh eyes". Best of luck with your course work!
