Answers :

Check for trouble codes, even if a check engine or service engine soon light is not present a code my be present. i have seen faulty throttle positioning sensors cause transmission issues or it could be an internal issue ( i recently had a simular issue with a 200 jeep XJ where the transmission wasnt shifting when it should and it ended up being an worn out adjustment inside the transmission) it could also be your kickdown linkage is just out of adjustment ( the cable that goes from your throttle body to your transmission to let your transmission know to downshift when your putting your foot into the throttle)

I have a 2001 Cheverolet Suburban that makes a noise that sounds like when you stick a piece of paper or something in a fan and hit the blades at the time of acceleration between 1 1/2 and 2 RPM only for a brief moment then goes away even if you press the gas pedal up to 1 1/2 to 2 RPM while idling it makes this noise. The AC gets really cold and runs good otherwise. Could there be a proble with my AC fan and is this a known problem in Suburbans?


It could very well be the fan hitting the fan shroud. Have your motor mounts inspected. You can do this yourself if you feel savy enough. 1. start the car 2. have someone either inside or out(depending on where you want to be)3.place in gear 4. place ... 2001 Chevrolet Suburban

I was running it for the 1st time after this winter it was idling fine at high idle 1,200 rpm and i bumped the throttle and it ran really rough and will barely run at all, I just don't know what went wrong,I replaced the plugs and it still won't run. What happened?


Sounds like it might have varnished gas in the system. I would change the fuel filter, clean out the lines with a good carb/fuel injector cleaner and fill the tank with fresh gas. I will run a little rough until the bad gas is run out. If this dont ... Chevrolet Corvette

OVER-HEATING!! I have a 2000 Honda CR-V with 150,000 miles that is running hot. I have checked the radiator. Added coolant to the radiator and radiator reserve tank. No leaks! I started the car and let it run until the radiator fan kicked on a couple of times. The temperature gauge remained normal. I then ran my car at about 1,100 rpm for about a minute and the gauge jumped and the car started running hot. I checked the oil to make sure there was no water mixed in, no water in the oil. I also ch

I have a 2001 Hyundai sonata. While driving home I started to lose power. I pulled over and the engine was running extremely rough like it was miss firing and halfway between the 0 and 1 on the rpms. Not sure if that is abnormal or not never payed much attention. Any ideas on what. Would be causing it. As of the moment it is not running. It turns over but does not start. And does anyone know if I can manually check the engine codes?

Engine sputtering When rpm drops, especially when shifts into overdrive, the engine will sputter, if you let off the gas some, it stops. I have changed spark plugs and wires thinking this would fix. It does not do it while shifting thru any other gears. Was getting a misfire cylinder #1 and found worn spot on plug wire. Sure was hoping this would fix the problem. I am sure it is not the transmission slipping.


How long has it been since the air filter and fuel filter been changed ,oxygen sensor in good shape ,if its running rich from misfiring you will ruin the catalytic converter in a short time check for vacuum leaks if its only no 1 cylinder then focus ... 1998 Ford Windstar

Abs light well i have a 98 honda accord v6. the abs light started to come on and when it did my cars idle would go down below 1,000 rpms and then it would die i would start it up again and it would run fine. a coule of weeks later when i was going down the road the abs light would come on and my rpm would go down and my speed amotor would go down to 0 speed and when it would do this my radio would make this noise light stadic going through it. so id pull off the road and my car would die.

Yesterday my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer died on me when I pulled out of a parking lot. I had my air on. So I turned it off so I could hear my car when it restarted. I put it in park and started it, but it sounded kind of funny like it didn't really want to start. So I pulled back into the parking lot and drove it around a bit to make sure it would stay running before I drove home. It didn't give me any problems on the way home. My RPM gauge hasn't been working for a couple of months. Every no

Po605 I pulled a po605 on the Bonneville, I'm not sure what it means, I have the book that says internal control module, read only memory (ROM) error. I understand that some kid ripped the stereo out and put an after market stereo in it. After causing what ever problem that was caused, the kid decided to put the original stereo back in. Now the car only runs if you hold the gas peddle down at about 4000 rpm's, but really rough. Can you please help get me closer to making the proper re

I have a 1998 Ford WIndstar. It died on us the other day. we put a refurbished alternator in it, changed the clamps that attach to the top of the battery, when the battery is in OUR van and is charged, it will hold the charge running for 1-2 minutes, then the radio goes off, the RPM goes to 0 and then it dings a couple times, then it dies. However, when the battery was in my friends truck it ran it just fine. so its not the battery. we are pretty much stumped. anyone have any ideas? I would grea

Then a cylinder balance test is done,the injector for each cylinder is turned off and the loss of fuel to that specific cylinder causes the rpm drop.If the plug is wet with fuel and number 1 didnt drop rpm's during the test,its most likely due to the ... 1995 Ford F350

I bought a 92 suburban 2500 with 250000 mile new motor and rebuilt trans. Drove 6 month then the overdrive stop working but it works when you take your foot off the gas, like there is no engine braking as in regular drive would do. Then a week later the engine fell on its face the rpm gauge went crazy and it started backfiring out the tail pipe and the throttle body,truck started bucking really bad. Turn off waited a min started ran fine , happens after running 10min to 20min and not every time

Engine idles rough throughout rpm range. Only cylinders 1 and 2 providing power. 3 and 4 getting spark and compression good (150 psi). When I got this vehicle it had a bad intake gasket allowing coolant into the #4 cylinder and I thought for sure I had found the problem. I replaced the gasket and it still runs bad. Even though I'm seeing spark on the 3 and 4 cylinders, could they not be getting it at the right time due to a faulty CMP?

Heater i am having heat problems with my 1997 plymouth grand voyager' and i was told the backflush the heater core lines. i am not even sure where the heater core is. but i was hoping that someone could tell me how to do this. i really need some heat cuz its negative 20 out here in iowa. this might not be the problem cuz whats happening is we dont get any heat unless we are revving the engine to the point that the tachometer is atleast running at 2000 RPM.


You can find the heater hoses easily. they generally are two either 5/8 or 3/4 inch hoses that run from the engine into the firewall one of them may have a control unit on it that is vacuum operated. To flush, Remove the hoses at the engine, let them ... 1997 Plymouth Voyager

Problems shifting Well I recently bought a 1970 beetle and totally redone the engine and it really runs great but now I am having a hard time figuring out why it will not shift into all the gears. I replaced the clutch, clutch cable, pressure plate, throwout bearing and the top linkage mount and still nothing. I have heard about the shifting forks in the transmission but I am not sure. It is stuck in 1 gear and will not go into reverse, neutral, or any other gear without dying. I am in need of s

My 1993 Toyota T100 has a running issue. it happens when its wet out. truck starts and runs well till it gets to temp. while driving it stops revving at 1,800 rpm and does not let the throttle operate again till 1,500 rpm. there's no stuttering or shaking. it just seems like a limiter is on it. I have replaced the plugs, wires, cap and rotor and it cleared up for a few days. the issue only seems to come out when it rains now.

My 1995 Mustang GT has been running rough recently. It idles really rough. It'll bog down really low to about 500rpm, then it'll rev up to 1100, settle at 750, idle good for about 15 seconds, then repeat. When driving down the road in overdrive, the car will jerk (or miss) when in a higher gear. I can turn overdrive off, and it'll run perfect. There was one occurrence when I was just driving as I usually do with a normal amount of throttle, and the car wouldn't shift up until I hit about 3500 rp

My 2001 GMC Yukon 5.3l 4WD SUV is having (2) transmission problems. 1.) When cold, it shifts HARD from 1st into 2nd but after the 1st time while the engine is warm, it shifts smoothly. It started doing this AFTER I had used it to pull a moving trailer for several trips in my small town. 2.) While driving on the highway, the engine RPM will run 2800 RPM - 3200 RPM when it used to run [email protected] 1000 RPM while driving 65-70 MPH. The transmission seems sluggish since I pulled that trailer last year
