My 2000 Volvo c70 turbo has a rebuilt trans, engine. Had the car for almost three weeks and now the speedometer shuts off, my odometer reads ---- and red blinking arrow (winter/wet) won't turn off. I've fixed the red blinking arrow once already by turning the car off and then turn it back on as close as on can be without starting the engine, and then shifting from park to drive about fifteen times before turning the engine on. But now that won't work. I really like this car. Always heard Volvo

Transmission slipping I have an 05 suburban all wheel drive. My problem is my trans stuck in 2nd gear a few times over the course of a couple weeks. Shut it off and restart it and it was fine. Then in one day it started slipping like crazy. I took it to a trans shop and had it rebuilt. After 4 weeks of this poor guy taking the trans in and out it still acts pretty much the same. We have ruled out most trans problems and I am now wondering if it is electrical?

1999 buick regal. I know you have heard this many times before but here it goes again. My regal usually shuts off while driving but starts back up on it's own and runs without pulling over and restarting. But this time it shut off and wouldn't start. Turn the key and it acts like you are trying to start it in drive. The idiot lights go out in start position and on in run position. If you let it sit for a while, it will turn over and start. Now a new twist. When it does start, the anti lock light

I need serious help! Not a single mechanic has been able to solve my problem! After a night of resting, when I start my 95 Maxima up, it starts up fine. As I drive and as the engine warms up, the car will start to skip. As the driving continues, I experience all of the following issues: 1. There is very little acceleration and the harder I press the gas, the RPM needle goes down and the car will threaten to shut off or it will shut off if I continue to hold it down. 2. It shuts off when I come t

My truck has been down for abt 2 months now. I got gas then I was driving on the interstate and the engine shut off. I noticed one of the hands was running hot or needed oil(can't remember). But I managed to get some oil and it started up. I tried to drive it home but black smoke came out the tail pipe and it shut off again and wouldn't start. I had to tow it home and its been there since. I try to start it often and it tries to start but won't ever catch. I was told that it was the timing belt.

2004 Intrepid- when I start the car the RPM surges. If I put it in gear right away and try driving it continues surging down the street. If I start the car and wait like a minute before driving it usually (80% of the time) runs fine the other 20% it surges again. It all started when I couldnt start the car. It would crank and act as if it was starting but when you let the key from start to ignition it would shut down. I unplugged the MAP sensor and it started fine so I have been driving with it

Sometimes when I try to start the truck, it won't turn over the first time, then the second time it will start fine, can't idle for too long; engine will shut off on it's own. When driving about 10 to 15 miles, it will shutter like it want's to shut off and I step on the gas to get it going. Driving and the gas petal will push back at me and the car feels like it want's to shut off again, but I gently put gas to it and it goes.

Intermettent shut-offs Occasionally and ONLY when the gas tank is less than half full,my truck will just shut off. It happens sometimes at driving speed and sometimes when pulling off from a stop light. When this happens I can always re-start the truck after a couple tries and then continue on my way.
