When truck hits hard bumps,it loses power,and eventually knocks off. getting worse, today it would run 35 mph,and be flat when you give it gas. but will clear up. mechanics here can't find problem. engine service lite will come on when idle drops,had map sensor put on it months ago. But hitting bumps and losing power is the main issue. then hard to recrank when it does this. thank you [email protected]
It surely sounds like you are confronted with a damaged cat converter. The o2 sensor is what triggers your ck eng ligh and it is located both up and downstream of the Converter. Won't hurt to have it chk'd. If there is a sulphur odor coming from ... 1987 GMC VanDura

L480E shifts out of overdrive but will not return to overdrive until you restart the truck. I have a 2000 old body style chevy 2500 5.7 L480E. Truck runs great and shifts fine. !60,000 miles on it. Can drive it anywhere normally with or without a trailer. The problem is when I hit a long hill and it wants to downshift,it does which is normal. It will not return to overdrive until you shut the truck off and restart it. If I keep the truck at a speed above 74 mph I don't have any problems with

98 Dodge Ram 1500 360 V8 4X4. Truck runs great. New cat no issues anywhere except an evap leak which I've narrowed down to the solenoid and the big problem. I have 185K miles. When I take off the truck feels very sluggish. No power. It recently rained and I couldnt even break the tires loose on the wet road. When I hit about 2500 RPM it picks up and rockets great. Im not expecting a sports car but My buddy who has the same truck breaks the tires loose just by hitting the throttle too hard
Sounds like the timing chain is loose. You can check by removing the valve cover on the drivers side and turning the engine over by hand till the timing mark is aproching top dead center the intake valve for the number one cyclinder sould open the i ... 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
My 2002 Escalade EXT when the rear end drops or hits a bump or today I could push the gas and then hit the brake and it would make a loud da-u-nt sound like when the truck is rocking I think it was coming from the back passenger side......also when the truck sits all night I can get under it and push up on it and it makes a loud like metal popping sound but then stops because I can't get truck rocking from under it and i have put new shocks and stabilizer links on .......would really like so
A suspension specialist will easily pin point the issue. It is something like bushes worn out in control arms. ... 2002 Cadillac Escalade Ext
I own a 2002 Ford F150 SuperCrew- TCS flashes at low idle,It goes off when truck accelerates. Transmission shifts fine in all gears and if I hit the tcs at highway speed it downshifts to third gear with no problem. If I hit the switch again it goes back to overdrive. I have had regular maintenance on tranny and changed the filter and fluid every 35k. Truck has 122,000 miles and I am original owner. Any idea's as to what may be causing the off light to flash?
The flashing is the transmission reporting a problem. Only way to figure it out ( that I know of ) is to have the transmission looked at.The flashing is generated by the PCM, which controls the engine and transmission. Without a CEL, th ... 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab
I left my truck rest for 12 days when I returned and drove it 50 miles the battery light came on and the elecrical gauge dropped to between 9 and 14. I drove it home another 34 miles and when I got home the gauge was dead. do I have a battery problem or an alternator problem? any ideas?
Likely a battery problem. Batteries tend to fail when they sit for a while. If your electrical guage was reading 9 - 14, with a dead battery, the alternator was working. Also, if the alternator was dead, you'd likely have noticed dimming headlight ... 2000 Chevrolet S-10

I have a 1990 GMC Z71 4X4 with a 350 TBI 217K my problem that I cannot figure out is after giving the truck new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, TPS and vac. line, O2, Map sensor and vac. line, air cleaner gasket, fuel filter--NO EGR on motor.. The truck just doesn't want to go once it hits second and will burp through the TBI leaving the truck with very little power getting to speed. Had timing check by a local and said it was off 3- degrees, returned it back to 0, and truck ran worse. I can hea

Thanks If I stop, shut the engine off, wait a few minutes and restart, the problem go
I have a 95 k2500 350 just put in a new tranny and less than 90days later there is little to no pressure. Thinking it is a bad pump but could be the ecu thing as well since the previous tranny went out the same way. If you know where to locate it any ... 1995 Chevrolet K2500
I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited with approx. 80k miles. I keep up-to-date on the recommended maintenance. The truck typically runs fine, with some exceptions. (1) When I first start the truck in the morning, you can hear liquid gurggling near the glove box in front of the passengers seat. Doesn't seem to create a problem, just sounds wierd. (2) The idle drops and truck stalls.. this only happens when I first take off, sometimes after the 2nd or 3rd stop. I am able to start the tr

I bought a 1994 GMC sierra 2500 4X4 pick up truck with 225K on the odometer. The owner said that the 350 V8 was replaced with a older block (year unknown) and put back using the 94 throttle block fuel injection. The problem is that it has been to three garages during the last 500 miles and it sputters and almost dies when you step on the gas pedal from start and when going. Also, each time they change the plugs and wires and it is fine for a few miles. Twice they gave me back plugs that have the
If the plugs were bent then you have the pistons hitting the spark plugs, this can be caused by several things, One wrong plugs or 2. rod bearings are bad allowing the pistons to hit the plugs. As far as the stuttering is concerned I would check the ... 1994 GMC Dura
2003 Saturn L200 (153,000 miles) 1. Gas gauge occasionally fluctuates between empty and full while driving for no apparent reason at the same time the car alarm light flashes. 2. Sitting at a light idling, put car in park and car alarm went off, could not get it out of park (no, I did not accidentally hit the alarm, yes I tried to shut off the alarm). 1 hour later (after towed) put it in drive, no problems except odometer jumped from 153,000 to 910,000 miles. 3. Went from 20+ mpg city down to

The problem is, after i had it a month or so the glow plug light inside the truck stopped coming on. so now it is hard to start. I'm not familiar with desiels and I'm learning as i go. What can the problem be?. I need to get this fixed before winter hits. Thanks
Check the Relay first, mounted on the fender. Make sure it has power to it, and make sure the wires are all hooked up to it. It will look like this---> ... 1986 Ford F 250

Speedometer problem My speedometer works when it wants to. It will work fine for 30 miles or so and then it starts jumping around and drops to 0.......it will not register for a while, sometimes my whole trip (100 miles or so) and then it will jump back up to speed and work the rest of my drive..Someone told me it was probably the speed sensor but where is it and how do i change it?
Is this electric or cable operated? if cable, it could be a faulty cable......they go bad with age. ... 1996 Buick LeSabre

It sounds like there are some wires exposed and bouncing or the module has issues. try looking in the rear where the wires are and follow them back to the best of your ability and see if anything jumps out at you. could be a simple oversight. ... 2007 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson
I have an F350 Diesel that runs very rough. When I hit a bump at slow speed, the fuel light comes on and the motor dies. Going at highway speeds, the problem is less, but the truck still runs rough. What steps would you reccommend we take to correct the problem before going to the dealer's mechanic?
Try and clean the fuel filter and the injectors and that should hopefully solve your problem it sounds as though something may be blocking these ... 2004 Ford F350
Problem #1 -Odometer light does not work on my 2001 Tahoe. It used to go on when I would hit the top of the dash with my hand. Problem #2 - When I go over big bumps my gauges stop working for a couple of seconds.

I was driving into town, stopped at the stop sign at the end of my street, and when I hit the gas off the stop sign, the truck died. After 10 minutes or so of trying to start the truck, it fired up. Every time I tried to start, the engine turned over freely, and would sputter just enough for a shake. I drove for 3 miles with no problems, until it died again as I stopped at a stoplight. I had suspected the fuel filter from the beginning, so I went and bought a new fuel filter and swapped it out.
It still could be the fuel pump. Sometimes they don't just quit outright. Go to the vehicle. Reach through the open driver's side window. Turn the key forward to the run position. Listen toward the rear of the vehicle for the fuel pump to prime. ... 2003 Ford Expedition
I have 2 problems. The first is something with the electrical system. When I turn my truck off all of the guages drop to 0 but after a couple of minutes the fuel, temp, and the oil pressure guage all go up to about halfway. It doesn't matter if the key is in or if the door has been opened. The other problem is with the steering or suspension. When I turn there is a popping noise from the front end. I hear this noise turning in both directions but it is much louder when I turn left. Any ideas?
On the popping noise - maybe the U-joint boots are busted, have been for some time and now the joints have sand and crude in them and they need to be replaced?? ... 2001 Chevrolet S-10
