In the colder weather -10 to +30 degrees F. Whether you start and run or let the car warm up for 1/2 hour, you drive approx 5 to 6 blocks and when you stop at the first stop sign the car will die, but will not do it until the car is stopped for atleast 8 hours. If you watch the tach, when you step on the brake it acts like a car with a clutch and you dont push in the clutch when you stop. It only does this once.


Sounds like the torque converter is not disengaging, possibly due to a sticking solenoid. If you warm up the engine the transmission doesn't get really warm till you drive it. I'd try changing the trans fluid and filter and adding lucas trans conditi ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When starting the car, the engine auto-revs up as normal and at the higher rpm's it will make this noise, then when the rpm's come back down it goes away.

I'm having trouble starting my '87 Fiero. Everytime I leave it sit for more then an hour or so, It takes about 20 seconds of cranking to start. Once started it runs perfect. Basically I'm losing fuel pressure when it sits. Is there an accumulator that holds the pressure or a check valve somewhere that prevents the backflow of fule? Not sure if one of these pieces exist on this car? Would it be the fuel pump, even though the car runs perfect once started? Thanks


HI. this sounds more like an obstruction in the fuel lines or a faulty fuel pressure regulator. i recommend doing a fuel pressure test. the pressure should be at least 9-13 psi. If not, check for crimped lines or disconnected elec ... 1987 Pontiac Fiero

1996 Ford Taurus SHO 3.4. Intermittant starting problem. Welded cams. First instance a couple of months ago. Had it towed to a local shop. Once there the car started right up. They kept it for the day starting it up about once an hour. About a month ago it did the same thing. From the towing incident my conclusion was to, basically, rock the car. That worked! Yesterday, same problem. No amount of jostling helped. Won?t start. So far: Checked the fuel filter, fuel pressure - both good; replaced t
