My original question was: "My 2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel started acting as if it was pulling a house when I would first drive it for the day. After a few miles it would resume full power. I tried draining the water release from the fuel filter with no change. Now it will not shift into high gear (automatic trans). The transmission fluid is clean and at the full mark. Could water in the fuel filter cause this? Or do I need to have the bands adjusted? Or could it be something else? It only has 70

Adjusting front end alignment . The tire is tipping in and they are wearing out excessively on inside edge. I believe the spacers on top of a frame support are adjusted wrong. do you need to release the pressure on front by jacking the vehicle up before trying to turn the spacers on the top bolts?

Hello. Most likely the problem is with the bands. If you have an AAMCO transmission shop in the area go there. They now offer a free vehicle computer scan which may tell you alot plus they are fair pricewise when it comes to transmission work. Do ... 2002 Dodge Ram Maxi

Have an old (1995) 4WD Explorer that has started to slip between the 2-3 shift. Once the shift is complete, no more slipping. Just started doing this. Trans fluid full but needs to be changed. Perhaps a valve is hanging up sopmeplace during the shift? Seems like 2nd gear clutch releases and 3rd gear is not engaging at the same time. Before this started, 3rd gear shifted pretty hard like it engaged too quickly. THought about a can of magic stuff to perhaps clean up the possible varnish and a flui

My hood will not open, the cable release seems to be broken, how do I get the hood open?

I need to adjust the clutch on a 1995 standard mighty max mitsubishi I changed the clutch disc, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing and pressure plate, but the clutch stays against the fly wheel when running in neutral and will not allow it to go in any gear. the cable is moving the throw-out bearing fork and to me the fork seems to be to easy to move back and forward. also the clutch cable(although moving the fork) is not in very good shape and needs replacing I'm ruling it out as the sole problem


You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork. Once the throw out bearing is achieving its full travel the clutch sh ... 1995 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

My son replaced his clutch master cylinder on his 2001 Camaro 3.8 because the clutch would re-engage after 1 second (or so) while the pedal was depressed. He now needs to bleed the line/master cylinder and cannot find the bleeder. The instructions we have indicate to attach a hose to the bleeder on the clutch actuator and submerge the other end of the hose in a container of fluid. We need to know where/what the clutch actuator is, is it easy to get to, and is the another name (alis) for clutc


1/4" or equivilent hose will do, the actuator, or slave cyl, is installed by the clutch plate, inside the transmission, but there should be a cut out in the case where the bleeder is located. loosen this up with a hose slipped onto it, and submerg it ... 2001 Chevrolet Camaro

Still I have to jam the clutch all the way to the floor and barely able to get it in gear. What else could be the problem. When I push pedal down it goes down about 2 to 3 inches before it seems to do anything at all. It has been bled properly on the bench before installing, and underneath after that.

06 Equinox brake problems. My wifes front rotor beat really hard whenever she brakes. I know i need to get them turned but i have to do this every three months. I think this is b/c the back drums need adjusting. My question is, is there a way to adjust them without taking the wheels off. Example my truck is a 97 1500 and all you do is pull up on the parking brake release and pump the parking brake a few times. Example #2 on 95 1500's whenever you back up the drum brakes automatically adjust.


You can turn a rotor once or twice but each time you do, you are removing metal...The rotors today are really not thick enough to put up with too much of that before they are too thin to be useful. In removing metal they will not dissipate heat well ... 2006 Chevrolet Equinox
