My 94 Ranger 2.3L 4 cylinder would occasionally loose power when I was driving. Then it would start running fine again. It finally got a little worse, where I could stop when it was running rough so I could check it out. I put an inductive timing light on the plug wires. On the front coil 1 & 4 were firing while 2 & 3 weren't. On the back coil 2, 3, & 4 weren't firing. When it was running ok, all 4 were firing on the front coil, but on the back coil 3 & 4 still weren't firing. I'm not sure if th

Uses up water. have to put water in it to get to the store, and add more to get home. Does apear to be leaking. dry around the pump, doesnt apear to smoke or steam out the exhaust. have seen water in oil, but nothing like what it uses up, likely a little got in the oil, or some sort of condensation. car runs fine, opperating temp is fine as long as the water level is up.

My 2005 Ram 1500 4.7 started running bad the other day after the engine light came on a few hours earlier. I have replaced the cam sensor and the throttle position sensor. It ran 200+ miles fine and then started again this afternoon. It dies or runs rough. It idles fine and at low RPM's seems ok. Picking up the idle a little while in park, it runs fine until around 1700 RPM's + and then the engine constantly bounces around as if I were giving it the gas and letting off back and forth. Then at id

Renault Magane Authentique 2001 (Y)- Squeaky brakes and shaky front wheel. The brakes squeak often but not always and sometimes even squeak when brake pedal is released. Seems to squeak less or not at all when weather is damp, worse in dry weather. Had Front brake pads replaced in Jan 07 and have had squeaking problem ever since. Had them checked several times and they are ok. Had them removed and dusted recently but still squeak. Also, one of the front wheels seems to bounce more than the other

My car is jerky at lower RPMs when i try to accelerate (but used to be fine at these RPMs). If I am going accelerate around 2000 RPM then the car will really start to lug. It is fine once it gets up to around 2600 and above. It just seems like that is revving the engine a little too high. Should I check any fluids or spark plug wires or anything?

I HAVE A 2006 FORD RANGER LEVEL 2 4X4....when giving it gas in neutral or park the motor jars around 3,000 rpms and won't go higher? when driving it works fine and passing gear works fine too...just when i give it gas in park it won't let me floor it without jumping or jarring around 3,500 rpms? is this natural??? my old dodge ram i could floor it and get rpms to go as high as i wanted???


Funny....thats a safety feature ford now uses. Keeps you from blowing the engine and no you cant by pass it. So yes its natural. But nice to know that someone still trys to feed some speed..... ... 2000 Ford Focus

I have a '94 accord LX 5-speed with 111k miles. When I drive above around 70ish mph, the car starts to run a little rough, it begins to shake a little. There is no CEL light on and the oil was just changed. It seems to run fine under 70 mph and at various RPM's. It does seem to idle slightly rough lately, but NOT badly. The temperature gague is not reading hot when this problem occurs. This car seems like it may have sat around for a while before I got it. Thanks to anyone that can help/ reads


Seem like you need to have at-least the two front tires high speed balanced. This shaking at high speed is most likely due to the tire being out of balanced. Good luck and thanks for us ... 1994 Honda Accord

My 95 dodge intrepid used to die at various times. most the times was driving down the highway, so i would pull over to the side of the road and the car would just turn itsself back on and drive fine for the rest of the trip. some days it wouldnt die at all and some days it would die 5 times. the diffrence in weather didnt seem to matter weather it was wet dry hot or cold. now it wont start at all it tries but it wont kick over and the fuel pressure is fine.

Have a 2006 Dodge Magnum with what I think would most likely be an ignition circuit problem. The engine cranks fine but will not start. I checked all fuses and they are fine. The battery is new. The car has started fine after a few days of dry weather in the past, but it will not start now. Does any-body have a wiring diagram on this 2006 Dodge Magnum 348-350 hemi/head engine ignition system or suggestions?

My 2005 Toyota Tacoma is starting to have some steering problems. As you turn the wheel while driving around a bend the steering is starting to get a little stiff. I am hearing a small klunk noise from the front end but everything seems solid under the truck. i jacked up the front end so both front wheels were off the ground. I then grabed one of the tires and turn it back and forth to see if I could hear any noises. When I bring it halfway throught the complete turn and then quickly bring it

1996 Toyota Celica. Oil warning light came on two weeks ago. Topped up immediately with 2L. Have driven the car minimally since. Today the warning light came on again. A kind neighbour checked it and thankfully said it wasn't the head gasket as far as he could tell. Coolant level fine if not a little cloudy. Filter seems fine and engine sounds fine. Checked the dipstick and it seems almost dry! I'm mystified.

Whirring noise front end 2003 yukon denali xl which seems to be coming from front left wheel or even the middle of the front end. loudest when coasting around 20 mph with little or no accelerator. Noise goes away if transmission is shifted to neutral.


Your front pump in the transmission could be going bad. Check the transmission fluid for level and condition. The fluid should be bright red and not burnt (dark in color like burgandy). Best thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and have them ... 2002 GMC Yukon XL

I have a humming noise I the front end. I've jacked the car and there is no play in either of my wheels. The noise starts around 25 mph and gets deafing loud at 65mph, however it seems to go away around 70mph. Could this be that my wheel bearings are dryed out? If so, what would be the worst chase senerio if I had to drive it for a couple of weeks before I could fix it?


It sounds like you could have a problem with your wheel bearings.Wheel bearings do not have to feel loose to be noisy .A way to check would be to jack the front wheel off the ground.Support the front with jack stands under the lower control arms.Have ... 1997 Ford Taurus

Moaning noise I have a 1999 chevy blazer 4x4. I am trying to solve a moan or bearing noise in the front of the vehicle. I just replaced both hub assemblys and noise was still there. We then replaced the output shaft bearing and the pilot bearing. Noise is still there! It starts at about 30mph and disappears around 50mph. Had assemblys rechecked and are fine. What other parts could be causing this? It also feels like grinding in the front firewall also with the noise.


Has anyone checked the front drive shaft u joints, play in the differentials? differentials would come and go as you accelerated and let off. ... 1999 Chevrolet Blazer
