the idle seems too high too, like 1.5 rpms, the tranny downshifts inappropriately. It is not equipped with the automatic hill downshift feature.... ive only had it for 1 week and if it always sounds like a tightly wound rubber band, its embarassing and i dont want to keep it. Is it filters and bands? Is it suppose to sounds so...1980 economy car?

What will cause lose of power and want start

It did this for a few times and was then diagnosed with timing chain failure. Replaced the chain,tensioners and guides then it was fine again. Only problem now is it would occasionally stall and when i crank it a few times it would start again. I have changed the crank sensor but its still the same. It don't give any fault codes. Please help.

When i accelerated the truck would jolt and the rmps would start jumping more down almost like the truck was huffing

It's obviously an electrical issue but what's causing it? A couple months ago I noticed when I would turn the ignition on, the airbag light would come on for about 10 seconds and disappear. Now my door locks are randomly locking a d unlocking and my hazard lights came on and went off while I was driving! All this happened today without any issues prior to this afternoon...

fusible link has been replaced

At the same time, the dash charging port also stops and starts.

Dash light is on indicating passenger side airbag is not working. Dealer advises that the sensor can't be replaced by itself and that the airbag with sensor assembly has to be replaced. Their estimate is in excess of $2,500.

It acts like it is clogged up or bad gas it happened 3- times. Happens when I'm driving only , also 2-3 weeks between incidents . Figured it bad gas but now think it's something electronicall , or pumps getting weak. And ideas?????

I put a charger on it and started it, everything went crazy the gauges were going on and off, head lights came on with the switch off. trying to cut of when driving down the road, all warning lights came on, when I got it home and turned it off it wont star again, anyone have this happen?

in cly. 1. I changed plugs and cords. the battery was weak so I replaced it. this morning the battery was dead. I jumped started it and everything went crazy. gauges started messing up and the head lights came on with the switch off and it tried cutting out when I was going down the road, 4x4 and break lights came on. I don't have a clue whats going on

I've recently had problems with the connections to the battery and all I would have to do it wiggle the positive cable and the truck would start right up. There was a point in time when I went to turn the truck over and there was a clicking sound along with fluttering of the lights on the dash. Now the truck does not turn over, there is no power or lights on the dash unless I jump start it, once it is jump started it runs fine. What would cause this?

starts and idles fine but then begins to miss fire, you can see the tachometer drop a couple 100 rpms

front brakes were not working so replaced cylinder and bled brakes. front brakes froze up and got very hot. ran diagnostic on it but no code. still do not have front brakes what else can be wrong

It acts like a bad fuel pump, but I think it's electrical. What could it be?

won't let me add to this

Pours out as I add water. Found it with a flashlight and inspection mirror.

Asked my 19-year old daughter to stop at a nearby garage to get my tires rotated. She came back home with her BF leaving my truck with mechanic for repairs. She forgot to bring home the repair estimate, but did bring home additional (optional) services estimate amounting to $533 (flush power steering, flush cooling system, brake system flush, oil filter housing seal). Kind of like Jack and the Beanstalk in a way. I called mechanic. He told me front u-joints were bad and a nearby gasket was leaking. Told me $320 for the joints, seal and rotate tires. $533 for all the other stuff seemed like fluff to drum-up business. I don't think I need it. Just wondering if the $320 figure seems legit.
