What can it be
Transmission or torque converter has some serious problems. When pressing on the gas pedal from low speeds there is barely any acceleration in 1st and 2nd gear under 2,000 rpms, but when 3rd gear goes in car accelerates more than desired most of the time. This is most apparent when car is cold, but never goes away completely. This really bothers me as this usually happens during turns when you slow down and when you want to accelerate you don't know how hard to press on the pedal, if you press too much car jumps ahead, if not enough you barely move. Another problem is that when coming to a complete stop when transmission downshifts you can hear a faint thump of every downshift somewhere under the vehicle and a little surge forward. What is the problem? Any solution?

My vehicle has some oil leaks from the engine which a mechanic says are because of a worn out valve cover gasket and bad oil filter.
Took it to the dealership and didn't find the problem cause it started for them 2 weeks they had it. They hook it up to a diagnosis machine and found nothing. It started to have a dead battery again I took it to another place where I live and he change the final stage but it still drain my battery. What can it be? He too hook it up to diagnosis machine and didn't find the problem
i accidentally put oil in the car radiator spot
My temperature gauge all of a sudden jumped into the red and overheated causing the vehicle to automatically shut down. Coolant level was okay and fan was engaging (however, it was running extremely hard). Switched out the thermostat, but still experiencing the same issue after about a mile of driving.
Anyone else experience this and have any other suggestions on what to check before replacing the water pump?
ABS, BRAKE & 4x4 lights illuminated at 64,000 mi. dealer says transfer case needs replacement and quoting over $2,800. i see the part online for appx $1,000. if labor is $150/hr, how does the remaining $1,800 add up to 12 hours labor or is the part truly more expensive?
It was obvious that a hose or something had burst. I had it towed to a local dealership that I had never used. They called me later and said that the expansion chamber had burst and they had replaced it. That seems to be too simple a solution for a vehicle like this to suddenly get that hot. Are their other things that could have also malfunction to cause this. I am on the road a lot and don't want to be in the middle of nowhere and get stuck.
