My 99 dodge ram 1500 sport 4x4 5 speed manual tranny started missing real bad,one day while i was going down the highway.So bad that you can hear it in the exhaust and it's a constant miss.I was in 5th gear and had the cruise control on when it happened.I,ve changed the plugs and wires.I was wondering what some symtoms of bad sensors, or mabey a bad fuel injector would be and how to check.Could a bad 02 sensor or cat do this?


You did not state whether or not you have a check enging lite on, if you do not have a check engine lite on then it is not a sensor related issue, if you hearing a miss from your exhaust at high rpm you may have encountered a broken exhaust valve spr ... 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck

1995 Pontiac TransAm w/5.7 l v-8. Overheats at slow speeds because the elec. fan does not start until the engine temp reaches 220 or more. Could I install a toggle switch w/ a diode in the coolant temp sensor circuit to bypass the sensor and manually turn on the fan at a lower temp. during low speed driving? Or is there a sensor available that would replace the current sensor in the water pump w/ a lower (185 deg.) to replace the existing sensor? I think the manual switch would work but a more


I think 220 is the proper temperature for the fan to turn. 220 is too hot and that's why it is turning on but should never have to ideally. What your car likely needs is new coolant and a new thermostat. I recommend a 185* thermostat. ... 1995 Pontiac Firebird

Help with troubleshooting speedometer problem. I had a "friend" do some work on my car a while back and ever since then my speedometer will just start jumping from 0 to 10 to 80 to 60 back to 0 at random. It jumps all over the place. Even in park it does this. When it does it going down the interstate it comes out of the torque convrter lockout. So I figure the speed sensor is going out in it.
