When I start my car it jumps to 3 rd gear and sound like it's driving and when I put it in D the car cuts off.
My 2004 S10 blazer w/ 4.3L (X engine code) will change from idle speed to almost 0rpm when stopped. This happens when engine is hot or cold. No codes. Only 78k miles on vehicle. What could it be?
A couple of weeks ago all of the guages in the car lit up and it refused to start. I jumped the battery and thats when the irradic shifting started. It always shifts hard to first but second gear is different. Sometimes it shifts to 2nd way too earl and sometimes not at all until i feather the gas. It happens the worst on a hill. I tried disconnecting the battery for 30 min then i replaced the battery thinking i wasnt getting 12v to the shift solenoid. Checked the condition and level of fluid. No difference. Also the fuel level guage and readout ( needle and number ie..12miles to e) are behaving completely irradically. Could these two issues be related electronically or do i more likely have a physical transmission problem?
The plastic bottle under my hood that holds windshield wiper fluid has a hole in it somewhere and I cannot clean my windshield when I'm driving. Need estimate of Cost to Replace & Install a new one.
My son crashed into a tree and smashed the trunk in.but did not have any car insurance at the time
My fluid looks a little muddy and far from red. Seeing that it's not a hard job draining the return line while turning stop to stop, then refill. Turn wheel stop to stop then refill. Check after short test ride to rid the system of any air. But is it true fords fluid is best and is it synthetic or regular type F. Thanks for the help as the car is worth it, runs great and gives me no grief. Thanks guys for your time to respond. The Falcon !!!
Before I change it the car was driving fine it just had the red battery it won't turn on it just turn on the lights it only runs when they pass me jumping cables if I turn it off and let it run for 15min and I turn it off I won't start again untill they pass me jumping cables
we owned our vehicle for 3 hours before a lady mashed the front end of it. The guy that towed it said that he was sure this vehicle had frame damage and to make sure they check it. So, when the adjuster looked at it, he stated that the hood was too mashed for him to even get it open and he couldn't crawl under the vehicle, so he said that the body shop would check the frame. Well, the body shop has tried to make the front end of my car line up and it will not. I have had it back to them 7 times and he finally said that he didn't know what the problem was. I asked him if he checked the frame and he said, "No" but that he could tell by looking at it that the frame was fine. He said that he didn't own a frame machine to put it on and check, so I contacted the 3rd party insurance who is having to pay for this, and they sent the adjuster back out. The adjuster said that it was a horrible job as far as the repairs go, so I asked him if the frame could be damaged and he said the body shop should have checked that. I told him that they didn't but tried to put it back together anyway. He crawled under the car and then said well I don't see any frame damage, so that's all we can do about it, even though my car will not stay together, literally, and everything is uneven in the front, the bumper has ripples all in it, like its just jammed in there, there is a 2 inch gap under one headlight, and only 3/4 inch gap under the other one. I keep telling them to check the frame and they say that they can tell by looking that the frame is ok. I think because they paid this body shop to fix the car, they are afraid there is going to be frame damage and they refuse to have it checked, but someone said that if there was something called core support damage, then 99% of the time there is frame damage, and the core was mashed and had to be completely replaced, what do you think about this? Thank you
