It really sounds like you may have a misfire. Is this the model with the coil at the top of the valve cover with 4 wires going off to their prospective locations? If so, check your wires and look for white tracking marks indicating an insulation leak ... Eagle Talon

I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota. The engine started to make a seriou loud knocking sound. Took it to a mechanic and he advised to install a new engine. The truck runs great and has been well taken care of. Not sure how this happened. Even with the knock, the engine still has power. Here is where I need some help.

It is doubtful the ECM went but what could have went is the TCM (transmission control module). With that said the Licoln navigator comes with back up sensors and it is possible you damaged a sensor. The ECM would pick it up as an error. ... Cars & Trucks

2000 Ford F150 4.6 V8 4 x 2. Center support bearing went. Took truck to driveline shop, they pressed on a new center support & changed the 3 U Joints. 1 day later, truck only "rolled" from complete stop- revving engine, it finally got going (3 times). Will go in reverse no problem. Tried in D, 2, 3 both with OD & with OD off. Truck moves foward at minimal speed when put in drive. Have to rev engine pretty high before it lurches forward.

I put my truck in park, turned off the ignition as normal to get something from the house real quick, hopped back in and went to turn on the truck but it seems as though with or without the key in the ignition, the ignition is stuck being on for accessories but the engine is not on. Air is on, radio, lights, etc. But the engine won't turn over. No clicking so it doesn't sound like it's the starter. What could it be?

Recently had a cambelt change on a 2000 Audi A4 (B5). The engine sounds great, seems smooth but I am convinced there is a slight, but significant, loss of power in the lower range. Accelerating hard from idle it accelerates slower than I remember it and slower than the engine sounds tell me it ought to be. It almost feels like it is lurching until it hits 2000RPM at which point it feels like it used to before belt change (it also gets slightly quieter). If I want to maintain acceleration when ch
