Why does my ford crown vic engine shakes when I start it up? When I put it in reverse or drive it hesitates when i accelerate especially going up hill. When I'm braking it feels like the tranny is having a hard time down shifting into first gear. I have changed the throttle positioning sensor, spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, and i also got it put on a smoke machine to see if I had a vacuum leak. No leaks were found. I have not changed the spark plug wires in a year and a half. I found a li

Grinding gearbox iv got a 1995 ford probe 2.5 v6 manual. a few days ago i started to notice a grinding and whining noise coming from the gearbox when in 1st, 2nd and reverse. i have no problem selecting a gear and the clutch feels fine, but when pulling away there is also a lack of power or a restriction of some sort which also makes the exhaust sound weird. can anyone help or suggest anything please?

My wife and I bought a 2009 Hyundai Accent in August of 2009. Since new the car has made weird transmission sounds while idle in gear, or reversing slowly. The car also shakes during the latter once in a while. After about 3,000 miles, the transmission started clunking, especially up hills when shifting from 4th to 3rd. It feels like running over a rodent when it clunks, so its not just a little slip of a band or adjustment. We took it in. they said it is fine because it wouldn't clunk for them.


In your owners manual there is a phone number to file a complaint to the corporation. Do that first of all. I owned a Hyundai that did very strange things although I had strange braking problems which was repaired at a shop of my preference and was r ... 2009 Hyundai Accent

I have a 1992 Ford E150 conversion van that will sputter and choke while driving. Especially happens when hard city driving or going up a hill or even against the wind. I pull over. Let it cool for 5-10 mins the. Start again and drive never over second gear or with overdrive off and drive more gingerly and seem to make it. Oil and fluids are fine and no overheating. Would vac leak cause this? fuel filter? Air filter? Engine acts like it coughs or backfires/farts in the engine compartme

I have a 4.3L V6 automatic transmission at 99,000 miles. Yesterday when I started it and put it in reverse, it took a few seconds to engage into reverse. Even then, it still didn't feel fully engaged. Then shifting into Drive to pull forward, the same thing happened. While accelerating out of first gear, it didn't seem fully engaged. As soon as the truck gets moving enough to be in 2nd and other gears everything works fine. What could cause Reverse and 1st gear not to engage? Also, it was well b


Check your fluid level, it is probably low-check it when the engine is running, after the vehicle has been driven, on a level surface-if it is up to full, you will probably have issues with the trans, and you should at least consider having the trans ... 2000 Chevrolet S-10

I have a 1994 Nissan XE v6 4+4 automatic truck. The transmission shifts in all gears perfectly in all gears except REVERSE. I changed the fluid & filter,but still no reverse. Is there a cylinoid for the reverse? Also the 4+4 is working great. Is there anything I can do without pulling the transmission.

I have a 1995 ford F250 7.3 powerstroke with an automatic transmission. when i start the truck the o/d off light flashes after 10 seconds. If i attempt to pull out in drive it is in high gear. If i pull gear selecter to low it is in second. All this happened after crossing a rough set of train tracks. also it now seems cut out at higher rpm now. any idea what is causing this?


I almost had the same problems you have listed with my 1994 F-150, I believe that your truck has same transmission. There is some kind of sensor/electronic control on this transmission. One of the connectors could be loose. I have no idea where th ... 1995 Ford F250

MY 1993 dodge dynasty will drive forward for about a block and slip out of gear, you can then pull over stop the car and put it in park and then start the car again and it will go another block. It will not drive in reverse. i had the tranny pulled and rebuilt last july. they also replaced one of the quadrants. some times while driving it shifted through the gears and got up the highway speed.


You are going to need to have the trans pulled again. There aren't any electrical problems that can cause no reverse. Also it sounds like the 2/4 clutch is burnt and when it slips it puts it in limp and 2nd is gone. Hopefully the shop that did it in ... 1993 Dodge Dynasty

When driving up hills, the car will judder quite significantly and it seems to struggle to get into the right gear. The car is a 1.8T automatic VW Passat. We have also experienced a similar sensation when on motorways and the car is also not always able to accelerate away from junctions as it used to. Whilst this is not all the time, it is increasingly the case on all hills, but is less obvious or common on the flat.

I installed a Transmission from a 2000 Windstar into my 1998 Taurus. It shifts forward and reverse fine. Can I put the VSS from my 1998 Ford Taurus AX4S into the transmission from a 2000 Ford Windstar AX4S and will it report correctly to the PCM? I know the gear range might be different, but could care less. The transmission from the Windstar has a cover over where the VSS goes. Is the plastic gear still on the output shaft of the Windstar AX4S for the VSS? The Windstar AX4S also has another co

Hello, My transmission slips in 2nd and 3rd gear. It feels like it slips. the RPMs go up and then it finally gets into gear. I cant hear anything wrong. I am wondering if it is a computer problem more then a gear problem. Be fore i take it in i would like some advise. It mostly happens on hills. It also seems to have a hard time down shifting when i pull up to a stop sign. It doesnt happen all the time but enough to make me concerned. Thank you

My 2005 reg BMW is difficult to get into 1st or reverse gear when i start it from cold the and is very notchy in other gears it pulls OK on hills so it does not appear to be the clutch and after about 20 min of driving the problem dis appears this was the case until i noticed the clutch pedal was much lower to the floor than the break pedal. if i lift the pedal with my feet before starting the car the gears work normally.


You say that the it appears to not be the clutch, but if the clutch pedal is much lower to the floor than the brake pedal, that's an indication that the either the slave or master cylinder is leaking. If you lift the pedal with your feet, the gears w ... BMW 525
