Rough Running Idle, Erratic Speedometer Operation, ABS Light Illuminated, Check Engine Light, and Automatic Transmission Shifting Problems
Water intrusion into a connector located under the cab, beneath the driver's seat, can cause a rough idle, erratic speedometer operation, ABS Light and Check Engine Light illumination, and automatic transmission shifting problems. If needed, connector repair parts are available from Mazda dealers, and possibly some Ford dealers.
Brakes have been a continued challenge with this vehicle. I have replaced master cylinder 3 times so far. 1st @ 91k (after market) 2nd @ 95K (Genuine Ford). So far so good.
Car went from being quiet to all of a sudden sounding like a lawn mower when it was started. Had it evaluated and it was a cracked exhaust manifold. The crack was right in the middle of the manifold. Called around for prices of repairing it and they were as high as $700. Just thought I would do a search on it and found a utube video on how to repair it yourself and was reading the comments below it. One person said the same thing happened...
no cold air. evaporator leaked and had to be replaced.
I purchased a 2012 Red CTS-V off the lot of a Houston area Cadillac dealer. Shortly after purchasing the car, I heard a rattle when accelerating on to the highway. I immediately set up an appointment to the dealer to have it looked at. When speaking to the service advisor, he asked if I put "regular" gas in the tank (off to a REAL bad start). I stated I knew about the corvette pushrod technology and the eaton supercharger screwed on the engine...
The vehicle accelerates real slow and has vibration in the engine. Ran a OBD2 scanner and got the scan trouble codes. There were two codes detected, a P0300 and a P0328. The P0300 was a multiple misfire problem and the other was the knock sensor code. These parts are both killers on a person's wallet. Now I see why the dealer repairs are so expensive. To replace the knock sensor on a V6 VG33 engine you gotta move the whole intake to include th...
Steering control arms are a fairly expensive replacement to have done - here in AZ all the rubber components perish before their expected time, causing erosion and damage that can only be fixed by full replacement. Next time you take your car in for routine maintenance, have them check over the front end to make sure that you're still in good shape
The Owners Manual for the 4x4 Model Nissan Pathfinders eludes to the likeliness that the transmission will fail when using mismatched/mixed tire types, brands or sizes..... This is due to the type of hubs used for this vehicles "on the fly 4x4" option.... which keeps the hubs engaged, but not full-lock position, even when not in 4x4 mode!
Just had a 95 Pathfinder SE 4x4 with 102,967 miles and a freshly busted up planetary gear due to the pre...
I had new cam belt and water pump replaced as recommended by GM/Chevy. They did not replace tensioner pully. It flew apart in less than 100 miles. That blew all the valves. Had repaired. Total cost over $1600.0. Nothing but problems since. Another $500.00. My advice, get rid of Chevy Aveo and never buy another GM product!!!
The problem was that when coming to a stop, I would get the sensation of letting a manual transmission car stop without engaging the clutch; i.e. a shuttering sensation. The diagnosis was that the shift solenoid "E" encased in the transmission was faulty (PO770). The problem is that this part has been replaced twice within a 12 month period leading me to believe there is something really wrong with the diagnosis, treatment and possibly the t...
I had a loud clicking or chattering noise that was coming from my left front wheel area on my Volvo. This was somewhat maddening, as it would come and go. When it got so pronounced, I took it to my dealer's mechanic; he heard it, but couldn't pinpoint the exact source. He did rule out wheel bearing failure, and due to its' extreme left location, ruled out any transmission or angle drive issues (which had themselves been recently serviced). Fin...
I would like to see if anyone else has had to have their transmission replaced. My Saturn has 47K miles, I have never towed anything and I went to put it into reverse and it wouldn't go into gear. After having it towed to mechanic, I was told the transmission needed to be replaced (besides reverse, 4th and 5th gear were also gone). I have never had a transmission go out...and I do all of the maintenance required.
The transmission needs to be replaced on a 2010 Ford Fusion after 60,000 miles. The transmission struggles to upshift until third gear and then kicks in. The transmission slips randomly while shifting during drive. The transmission slips occasionally when downshifting to a complete stop.
The distributor may develop internal faults. This can cause a rough running engine or stalling condition and the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. The distributor should be overhauled or replaced to correct this concern.
An accumulation of dust inside the body of the turn signal switch can cause a partially closed circuit, which results in the turn signal relay intermittently clicking at a high rate. Spraying a small amount of residue-free electronic contact cleaner (such as Electrosolve) inside the turn signal switch can resolve this problem. The turn signal relay is not the root cause of this problem, but may be damaged by it.
Vehicles with 2.0L engines consume oil at an unusually high rate. VW specifies the oil consumption should not be a cause for concern unless it exceeds 1 quart per 1000 miles.
PROBLEM IS HAND BRAKE STICKS AND THE BRAKE LIGHTS STICK ON WHEN PULLING AWAY I GET A PING SOUND
If you have to press the remote button numerous times to open the power liftgate, it may be necessary to update the software in the power liftgate module to correct this issue.
the speedometer sometimes works.Does not matter what speed.It has not been repaired yet.
i had this problem for a while( my personal vehicle). The truck would go into reduce engine power mode at first. Turn the engine off and restarts with no prblem. I ignored it just didn't use defrost or A/C. Than as time went on(months)it got cold here in Philly and i needed my defrost.This time the truck shut off. turned off defrost and it started right up and ran normal. i looked for vacuum leaks. not many hoses to check. finally found advic...
A plugged heater core slowed the fluid flow to a level that seriously affected the heaters ability to provide warm air in the cabin. The entire dash, console, and steering has to be removed to R&R the heater core.
Most of the time I face the problem in reading cd or DVD and shows disk error after showing disk check in progress for about 2 minutes - the same CD works some times if I eject and loan many times. Can any one provide a solution. Nothing wrong with the CD/DVD as it works in other CD players without any issue.
Started noticing a grinding noise from the right front when cornering at low speed. Eventually the noise became constant at low speed. Diagnosed by putting it on a lift, spinning the wheel and wiggling the tire back and forth. Replaced wheel bearing assembly.
Popped open hood to find coolant sprayed all over the top of the engine. Hoses appeared intact. Coolant reservoir was empty. Radiator cap looked fine.
Diagnosed problem by bringing the engine to operating temperature and watching the coolant spray out of the radiator.
Issue was the radiator was cracked along the top (where it is plastic). Replaced the radiator.
The proper repair for a leaking Steering Rack & Pinion is replacement with a new unit.
Replace the worn wheel bearings.
Rear vent windows not operating properly is a common problem with Honda Odesseys. The solution is to replace the window motors.
The IMA light coming on is usually caused by a battery pack that is no longer charging correctly. Replacing the battery pack will turn off the IMA light.
When the heater only works on high, the most common problem is a blower motor resistor. The correct repair is to replace it with a new resistor.
Crankshaft and camshaft position sensors can leak oil into the connector causing Check Engine Light illumination. The engine may also stall as a result. Leaking sensors should be replaced. Certain 2002 models were recalled for a separate camshaft and crankshaft sensor issue. For more information on the recall please click here»
