I have a 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat, and when pulling a trailer it makes a chattering noise when the gas pedal is pressed down to pick up speed. When going up a hill it will not go passed 40 mph and starts to shift hard when pressing the gas pedal. In normal driving without a load and getting on a highway and picking up speed the first two shifts are hard and then smoothes out. The truck has around 130K of miles on it, mainly highway miles. What could the problem be?
If tranny is manual shift you may have a bearing and or bad gear. Try changing tranny fluid. Check manual for correct fluid may use tranny fluid rather than gear oil. I recommend using Royal Purple fluid or gear oil. This very expensive but will slic ... Ford F-150
I have a 2007 Ford Ranger that won't start. There were no problems starting and was fine yesterday. I went to start it up this morning and all I heard were cranking noises and the dash lights would go on. I changed the starting relays, and still the same problem. I pressed the fuel button located on the passenger side, pressed the gas pump for 5 seconds.......and nothing. Any suggestions on what I should do or try from here? Thanks!
I did not read anywhere where you tried to provide additional power to the starting sequence.try jumpstarting it. If the works, go to Autozone, they will test the output of the alternator and the charge on the battery.When jump sta ... Ford Ranger
1999 JAGUAR XJ8L Got a problem, was driving normal under heavy rain, then going up the hill an a very steep hill, when I reached the top of the hill the engine started to shake, made it home like that, engine under restricted performance,the the naxt day the engine just died, and did not want to start anymore, but if I press the gas all the way in, it started but as soon as I let the gas go, the motor dies, then it did not want to start at all. car gave codes P0174 ,P0300, P0301 ,P1313, P1642
P1642 is a possible PCM failure\015\012\015\012Oil on top of the plugs may of stressed the computer.\015\012\015\012All the other codes point to a misfire issue.\015\012\015\012The valve covers gaskets should be re ... Jaguar XJ8
Starting problem hi, i have a 2000 ford gt mustang 2 nights ago. driving down the highway i heard a noise coming from under the hood. the battery light came on then i pulled over admitaly. popped the hood noticed the radiator had blew off. having the hazzard lights on for only 15 minutes noticed lights were going dim then no power at all. all fluid on the ground. got hose put back on no problem with it either. battery completely dead. got jump start. try to turn it over. it will try to crank but
Could be more than one problem. If you tried to start it right after you blew the hose, something could have gotten wet. I hope you have tried after everything has dried out.\015\012Also the sound could be something related to the timing. You ... 2000 Ford Mustang
1991 Ford F150 4x4 5.0L 5 Speed Transmission/ When I try to give it gas an go it acts like it's running out of gas.It is getting fuel.This problem used to only exist when I would pull my RV and it warmed up,sometimes it would shut down completely and I'd have to wait 20-30 mins and go again,would run for 10 miles maybe and shut down again.I was told it was the Idle Air Control Valve,replaced it,problem still exist.Does anyone know the problem.Answer would be greatly appreciated.

My 1994 Camry, 4 cylinder has a major problem. This started about two months ago. At stoplights, or stop signs it idles very hard, and then when I try to accelerate, it goes very slowly, and makes awful noise. I have tried to drive it more recently and it starts fine, but when i go to accelerate it goes very slowly and the rpm's are very high. Eventually it will kick and the car will go rather fine. it also works better when its cold, once its hot, it's even worse. When its hot and i give it gas
Ok i ve been thru this problem too...SAME THING! I CHANGED THE TEMP SENSOR AND TPS SENSOR, PLUGS AND NOTHING!!!!WHEN IT GOT HOT IT RAN LIKE ****SO I HAD ENOUGH AND TOOK IT TO DEALERSHIPAFTER 300 DOLLARS I FOUND OUT WHAT IT WAS AND I ... 2002 Toyota Camry
My 1999 Buick Lesabre is idling rough and also is rough when going up hills. By rough, I mean the engine RPMS go up and down when they should be stable. When the car is cruising on the highway or a slower road, the engine runs smoothly. The problem first appeared when I drove the car on a virtually empty gas tank from work (20 miles) and then did not use the car for 10 days before filling up the tank. Could it be a dirty fuel filter that is causing the problem? I tried Techron and it
Change the fual filter and if that doesnt help try the fuel pressure regulator ... 1999 Buick LeSabre
Our 2002 crv starts to sputter going up hills,as if there is water in the gas. If the rpm is kept low ( under 2000) and the gas pedal is gently depressed it will keep going. If the gas pedal is depressed fully, the engine will conk out. Taking the gas cap off to release any vacuum doesn't seem to help. Maybe the fuel pump is the problem? Once the car sits for a bit the problem goes away. The trigger each time seems to be the steepness of the hill and going around a tight curve
This can be Caused by Both the Fuel Pump and the Fuel Filter. If you have not Changed the Fuel Filter in a While, Try that First and see if it Helps Before going to the Fuel Pump. It is Easier and Cheaper that the Fuel Pump to Replace. Please Rate my ... 2002 Honda CR-V
My 2006 Ford Mustang's factory alarm goes off when I try to start the engine. About 4 weeks prior to this, I had trouble starting the car on the first try (like the battery was weak). After that, no issues until I go unlock my car with the remote & turn the key in the ignition yesterday! Alarm goes off/horn blows/lights flash/radio-cd comes on. All this noise yet no engine can be started!!! What's the problem? Could it be as simple as replacing this older battery?
Well im a mechanic for village auto clinic in Hempstead,Ny anyway locate your fuse box under the hood and look for the fuse for the alarm check the owners manual if not disconect the alarm start let battery charge but note dont touch radio or anythin ... 2006 Ford Mustang
My 1995 Buick park ave ultra super charged: Wonderful condition. But When we get the speed up to 51 t0 55 it starts to feel like the tires need alligning, but we just had the front end alignment last year. This problem seemed to start after my boyfriend let my gas guage dip into the red. I never have let it go down that far. It has started to idle a little (tiny bit) rough and it feels like it is trying to cut out when we get the engine speed up to 55. Or going up a hill. I thought maybe the fue

I have a chevy 2000 s10 pickup that sometimes will not go when I step on the gas & when I push the pedal to the floor It makes a popping or back firing noise.(this especially happens when I am going up a steep hill.I have had the fuel filter replaced & the air filter I have also tried fuel unjection cleaner. I have had the truck for 3 years & have never had it tuned up. Could this be the problem?
Tune up would be a good place to start. most likely a bad plug wire or plug or both. tune up is in order. ... 2000 Chevrolet S-10

Hello, well at least you know the end cause is there is no fuel at the check valve. Can't really explain cold start part, except the Brain needs a signal from the Water temperature sensor to put it in a "Cold cycle" start with higher idle and richer ... 1999 Ford Explorer
Jaguar xj8l , was driving normal under heavy rain, went up on a steep hill, then all of a sudden motor started shaking, made it home then next day while driving around, engine just died, tried to started up again and only started if I push the gas pedal all the way in, but as soon as I let the gas go, engine just dies, checked for codes and it gave P0174 , P0300, P0301 , P1313 ,P1642, P1111, Any Ideas????? Thank you.
All these codes point to either a vacuum hose fell off or the fuel pump failed or a sensor failed or the connector fell off. \015\012\015\012The MAF sensor is your main fuel control and if it failed you will have this condition also. ... 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
I have a 98 maxima 3.0 automatic it seems when you try to step on the gas it has no power and takes a long time to get up to speed. also in traffic or low speeds, or going up ridge it seems like it wants to go into passing gear it jerks back in forth. also same problem when it sifts into 3rd gear it makes a loud noise and you can feel it.
You may need to have your transmission fluid drained and changed the filter. If that doesnt work, you may need additional tranny work. ... 1998 Nissan Maxima

Today it almost died on the Interstate and when I press on the gas pedal it would not go unless I barely touched it. Whats wrong?
Hi,\015\012When was the last time the engine was tuned up?\015\012No, not just plugs, but a full tune up! The whole nine yards! Any part\015\012of the secondary ignition will do this including the ignition coil or\015\012coils! This sound ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

1997 ford probe manual transmission problem. I was driving in 4th gear when all of a sudden the car felt like gears where griding. It didn't have the really lound noise as if you didn't put it fully in gear but felt all wrong. I came up to a stop sighn and tried to go in first but it sounded like it was grinding gears again. Engine idles fine, but the car doesn't go forward. Please don't tell me my transmission is dead and it'll cost me $2,000 to fix!!! :[ Thanks, Justin.
Well we could just lie and tell you what you want to hear but that wont help you... did you smell anything when this happend, if you lost a spring in the clutch plate this is what could happen.. but im speculating at the moment with out seperating th ... 1997 Ford Probe
I was driving down the road and all of the sudden it lost power. I pushed the gas and nothing. I pulled to the side of the road and it died. When I try to restart it, it cranks but doesn't turn over. I kept trying til my battery started going. What kind of problem am I dealing with here? 2002 Ford Mustang V6
Ignition Control Module is bad. When the dielectric grease used to mount them gets hard,they overheat and cause you to shut down. Really easy to install(about 10 mins.). I had this happen on two Fords. If you let the engine sit and cool down,they wil ... 2002 Ford Mustang
Gears slip i drive a 1996 ford mustang, 3.8L v6. stick shift. i just replaced the headgasket and thermostat and radiator, and now theres a new problem. all my gears are slipping, it starts fine, but when you put it in gear and push the gas it revs really high and barely accelerates. 5th gear is the worst, it doesnt even do anything, just revs high, if in cruise control and i go up a hill or something it slips and redlines. whats the problem, pressure plate? transmission? what? help.......estimat

Transmission Problem i was trying to drive my car and it wont accelerate at all. I hear myself pushing on the gas pedal but my car will just make a noise. It wont go in reverse either. I have to turn it off, restart it and it will work for a minute or so and im pretty sure its the transmission. From what I've researched so far on the web my car doesnt even have a trans fluid dipstick so what am i supposed to do? Am i to go buy some fluid and if so what kind and where do i put it because i can
Your transmission dipstick is hiding between the engine and the firewall[the wall at the back of the engine compartment];on the drivers side.look for a yellow handle.note location of dipstick tube.by using a long funnel,add fluid through dipstick tub ... 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Starting problems in hot weather. My 2002 Altima has had some hard starts the last three weeks and has failed to start twice. Each time after letting it sit several hrs it has started right up. My mechanic can not figure out what is wrong with it. When I start it, it makes some chugging noises and either gets going or fails to start. I have tried giving it some gas and that has not helped get it going the two times it failed. It has 131,000 miles on it currently. Thanks for any insight!

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer, and the past 2.Weeks or so it has been.making an awful grinding noise, mostly when I leave work in the morning before it warms up. And when it makes this noise, if I try to accelerate, it's like if I keep pushing on the gas it's going to break, like it feels like the brakes are on. Today it did it even after the car had warmed up. I pressed my 4by4 buttons a few times, and it seemed to work, but then did it again a few more times. I had both my front hub bearings rep
I have had this on several 01-05 Explorers, and it sounds like the clutch packs are sticking in the rear differential. Once the lube heats up and everything else in there warms up, they will un-stick. Does this noise occur when you make a tight cor ... Cars & Trucks
