I have a f250 extended cab 4 wheel drive auto transmission truck with a 7.5L power stroke engine. It starts fine, but after about 10 min. it quits like someone turned off the key. After 5 min. or so, it will start back up and be just fine. That was then. Now it won't start at all. I can hear the fuel pump come on when I first turn the key, so I think it has gas. Can you point me in the right direction?

Our 1994 Chevy Astro EXT will run fine for about the first 15 mins, and then suddenly start surging, lose power, trans won't shift. In fact, have to drop it to low gear in order to keep going. When all this starts, the anti-lock brake light comes on, and all the guages go nuts. If the anit-lock brake light goes back off, it will run fine again. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?

1993 Dakota, V6, Automatic. At first it seemed like it would shift into neutral and rev between 1st and 2nd gears. Now, it will start fine but the transmission will not move the truck in ANY gear. When I put it in reverse or drive the engine idle changes slightly but there is no movement whatsoever, it just revs up and won't go. Fluid level is fine, more brown than red, but doesn't smell burnt. It feels as though the shifter is shifting through the gears but the transmission never engages.

99 gmc sonoma 4wd 4.3l automatic- struggles to shift out of first gear, almost sounds like rev limiter is engaging? Once it's out of first everything is fine, all the other shift points are flawless.

Just looking for any info that could speed up the diagnosis-give me something to look for tonight. Thanks in advance.
