I travel over Donner Summit frequently and the weather conditions can get hairy!

car slows down as if braking engine drags to a stop. it just started happening also battery has to be recharged. just started after cold weather snap and 1st snowfall

other gears are fine... we had this problem before with our ford Taurus and it was due to a leak we sealed the leak but the car ultimately gave up on us anyway. how else can we fix a gear shifting issue? or is it most definitely the transmission?

4 wheel drive 3.2.I need to access a leak on the manifold crossover pipe :( :P


Battery and alternator both test fine. Replaced alternator. Wires all look good. What else could it be?

Putting Rodeo back on road.Keep fluids in and used a mechanic didnt know much about. He got me for$600. and the rodeo is worse than when he first looked at it.Over 200, miles asked him to change timing (double over head cam)Well timing was suppose to be done,fuel pump change because it was parked,antifreeze changed,plugs,oil,air breather changed,seafoam,lucus oil,supposely gas tank was cleaned with chemical & rocks? Idk thats what we were told.My wife took it less than a quarter mile it kept dying.Frustrated need this vehicle.I am disabled in nursing hm wife needs it safe to drive to come see me and have for grocery shopping & drs appointments.Everyone tells us its not worth fixing but we truly love it and has been dependable.If it can be fix reasonable we would like to!Please can we get a honest estimate from a good mechanic that backs his work by 100% and reputation.
