My 98 chevrolet blazer with pushbutton electronic transfer case will not go from 2wd Hi to 4wd hi it makes a awful grinding noise and the lights just flash. Then, it goes into 4wd low! I have to put it into neutral to get it back into 2wd Hi then. (which is normal to get back into 2wd hi from 4wd low)but all it does is make a loud grinding noise anytime I try to put it into 4wd Hi!

I have a 1997 chevy silverado. When it sits for a day or two it starts real hard. It begins to turn over normal and then turns over real low and slow and then goes back to normal and finally starts. My opinion is that the starter is shot and is draining the battery because I notice on my volt guage that the alternator is working hard to get the battery back to normal operating range on the guage after starting.

Sounds like you may have faulty field coils within the starter. You can take it off and go to a starter/alternaor shop and have it check, they can ascertain if it is pulling excess amperage, and either make repairs or replacment unit. ... Chevrolet Silverado

We looked at the dash board and the RPMs were going from 3 to 1 back anf fourth, and when this happend the car started this "skipping" thing. she looked at the oil pressure and it was at 80. when she took her foot off the accelertor it wouldnt happen. when we would get up to 30 mph the RPMs would start going from high to low. and it will not go into second gear.

Kia Sedona 2003. Timming belt ''exploded''. It was all repaired. The heads were sent for inspection and they found 4 bented valves. Everything is back to normal, except that when I'm in DRIVE (or REVERSE position) and completly stop, the motor shakes a lot and the RPM becomes very low. As soon as I give a little gas, it stops shaking. Setting the iddle RPM higher doesn't help. It was not shaking and getting that low, before the big repair.

I have a 2001 vw beetle. The Epc light came on after I had a problem with it stalling a few times then it acted fine for a few days.. after that I started having problems with it starting up and staying started. I will go to start it and it will turn over then stale. I can get it to stay started if I unplug the terminals and wait a min or so. Hook then back up, and it will start right up, but once I drive and go below 1000 rpms it stalls, then will start right back up like normal only one time.

Low idles When first starting my car, it will turn over and then shut right back off. So when I start my car, I have to accelerate for about a minute to keep to stay on.. will idle at about 500 rpms until I'm ready to go, usually drives normal until I come to a stop. It will drop below 100 rpms so I put it in neutral and give a bit of gas to help keep it on.

2004 Lincoln LS 3.9L At first the gauge would do the the red and then drop back down as if nothing ever happened and showed no signs of overheating. I used a temp gun to test the pipe at the t-stat and temp was normal. Now it is showing signs of overheating and it seems to be low on coolant every time I check it. No visible signs of a leak. I am thinking that the t-stat is sticking and boiling enough coolant out that by the time I get home there is no more leaking to be seen. Replace t-stat
