Answers :

Check fluid level, that would be the cause of the 2 things you mentioned.. and hope there isnt any damage to the tranny from lack of fluid. also check for leaks after you refill it. if it doesnt work after that, time for a rebuild
Uh you probably need a new transmission now but try refilling the trans. but before you do replace the filter since its already empty

I have a 1996 Ford Windstar that just got a tranny flush on. While driving my van on a short trip; The speedometer and odometer quit working.

I just replaced the engine on a 93 pickup 4 cyl 2wd when I test drove the truck everything ran great (about 5 mi) until I pulled in the driveway. Without any warning the trans flat out quit working.

I am trying to troubleshoot my wife's 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 3.7 liter V6. It overheats at idle and around the town driving hitting the ''oh Hell'' mark but usually with minutes falls back to normal without shutting off car. Fluids are fine but it uses quite a bit of coolant every few months, and the upper hose to radiator is hot as well so I am assuming the thermostat is opening and closing correctly.  Fan blows good.  Is it the thermostat, radiator, or water pump?


I would say change the thermostat its a possibilty it's sticking and not opening when it should be i would change it and see what happens from there ... 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a cummins, 5.9, it quit running. No fuel. Went to the fuel pump, replaced it, filled the filter with fuel, it started, then quit. Bled the line, lots of bubbles, thought we had a fuel line issue. Dropped the tank, replaced the Module ( gauge didn't work anyway). Still can't get it to run past the fuel filter. Since I am getting bubbles from the bleed valve I assume the pump is operational. I'm guessing the injector pump does not have "suction" to pull the fuel from the filter to run, so t
