I have a 1975 cadillac eldorado. It has the throttle body and fuel injectors. While driving at low speed (10- 30mph) the car hesitates and jerks . I give it more gas and the jerking and hesitation goes away. At higher speeds while holding the accelerater steady, the speed fluctuates. I have replaced the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator and the throttle position sensor. I have not checked the fuel pressure or began to troubleshoot the fuel injectors.

You need a safety inspection done on your car asap. What you are describing is very dangerous and can injure or kill someone. I would also recommend towing it to be inspected. ... 1995 Cadillac DeVille

I have a 2005 chevy avalanche 2 wheel drive, the other day I was driving through and intersection and out of nowhere it was like I was in neutral. There has never been any grinding noise, banging, clanking, or anything else that would have warned me of a transmission problem. Now, the truck will not take off in either drive or 3rd but if I put it in 2nd and get going I can manually shift it into 3rd or drive and it works perfect untill I slow down below appx. 15mph. I pulled the trouble codes a

Front & rear brakes keep locking up. When driving it's as if you were driving up an incline the engine is really working extra. When you take your foot off the gas the engine slows down to a stop. If you drive at high speeds while they are locking up the whole vehicle shakes. What would cause the brakes to do this. We pulled the ABS fuse to see if ABS had anything to do with it and it was fine for a little while then started up again.


Eighter your calipars are stuck or your rotors are vary worped Dose it pull to one side if so the other side is the problem and its not likely you have two calipars sticking at the sametime The vehicle shake like that when the ABS is on its not on du ... 2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS

I just bought a 1992 eagle talon and one of the belts is making a high pitched squeeking sometimes until the car warms up or if I cycle the gears a few times. THe belt looks fine, no frays or anything. (Automatic)Also until the car warms up it jumps when going from 1st to second. Also if I shift bewtween Drive and Reverse or neutral it jumps. Also when I shut it off the ignition the hole car kind of jerks. Theres no strange moises, the engine runs smooth and at speed it drives fine. THeres also


As for the high pitched squeeking. Just replace the serpentine belt. Just because you don't notice any crack or no frays, does not mean that the belt is good. My car was doing the same thing and when I replaced the belt everything was fine.\015 ... 1992 Eagle Talon

Jerks and shakes from time its cranked. can drive it but still jerks, doesnt want to take in gas when speeding up, some back firing when giving it gas. engine light flashes red until letting off the gas pedal. acts like going to shut off when stopped so put in neutral.


Sounds like a fuel injector is clogged up or is not firing due to the computer not firing it. Check by putting a noid light on each injector and checking for pulse by viewing a blinking light from it. Also, one can check to see if a stethoscope can b ... 1998 Toyota 4Runner

I have a 2004 Impala that transmission jerks into gears periodically when doing a bit of stopping and starting off. Have talked to other Impala owners,and some have had tranny problems also. It just happens off and on, you take it home and park it, drive it later, it's fine. Then when you least expect it,say going block to block, it jerks into each gear,hard. Anybody else have similar problems, or do I have a defective Impala too??? Thanx for any help you can give me Mary

My 94 3.0 nissan hardbody kingcab 4x4 is having trouble keeping a steady idle. it will drop almost completely to 0 rpms and and then jump back to over 1000rpms and repeat itself. upon driving on the highway it has cutoff when slowing to make a turn as well, several times. and even cut off when driving over speed humps. any ideas what to check before taking it to a mechanic?

This is a 1974 charger,360 ,4bbl,auto-problem is engine vibration. engine is running good, butvibrates almost like a miss,noticeable even in neutral, but more noticeable as the rpms are higher.when driving, seems not as bad as you accellerate,but after about 40 mph, give or take,is very noticeable, almost like a rhythmic grinding feel to it. when driving at steady slower speed, can feel hesitation,seems sporadic. have been told it was harmonic balancer-seems reosonable. but others say its worse-


Harmonic balancers can cause heavy vibrations also motor mounts (which think it is. Chrysler was famous for it in those years) oil will leak down from the valve covers and soften the rubber and the torque from the engine will snap the mounts and shif ... Dodge Charger

My 1995 Mazda MX6 has been driving rough on low speeds. I changed the wires and spark plugs & PCV valve,, anything else is recommended? Furthermore, I had a accident recently where the front end of the driver side got damaged. Since the accident car has become even more rough on idle and low speeds - any suggestions?

I am having issues with my Mercury Mountaineer cutting out/jerking when driving at a steady speed. This has happened since I ran the tank low on fuel, so I have a strong feeling it is the fuel pump but have taken it to a dealership and we have now changed plugs, fuel filter, idol control sensor, and a coil because they can not get a code. This is very sparatic so I can not get it to do it all the time and unless they would take it for a drive for awhile it does not do it for them. Sometimes t

I have a noise coming from the engine compartment that starts at about 30 MPH and it stays steady no matter how much faster you drive. I've replaced the tires and have looked for loose panels or anything else that might rattle and no luck. It doesn't do it when the car is standing still no matter the RPM and the transmission shifts like normal and it doesn't change the noise no matter what gear it's in.


You still may have warranty left. Make it their problem.\015\012\015\012But I would guess a PCV valve or an Evaporator cannister valve. You can check the EGR to see if it holds vacuum. There is also a breathing tube going from the exha ... 2004 Lincoln LS

This happened all of a sudden, My 1998 Lincoln Continental turns on fine, but when I change gears from Park to anything else (except Neutral), the car stalls out. Also if it doesnt stall out, the car would drive good at high speed but once I brake or stop at a light it bounces (almost like a standard car). I just put dry gas in because I heard it could help. Does anyone know whats wrong and how I can fix it?

I have a 1985 GMC C1500 Pickup. It has a Chevy 305 with a Rochester Quadra-Jet Carb. The problem is when it is cold, the truck starts up just fine, idles fine and has power. After the truck warms up in about 2 or 3 miles, it jerks and seems to misfire at driving speed. It has no power unless I punch it to the floor. Now it will kill at stop signs or if it doesn't, it will idle so low that it sounds like an old tractor. Adjusting the idle does not help. At take off, it stumbles and shakes


Your carb needs rebuilt, the float is to high or just really crapped up inside. You are dumping fuel in. Lee ... 1985 GMC C1500
