Question Answered: 

That could be the crank shaft sensor.I know the 3.8 from Chevy had major issues with that.a friend had one that was doing the same and after we replaced that sensor it was happy.Not sure what that entails on your car but it wouldn't hurt to look into it.it was fairly simple on the Chevy and they're bad about making things hard to work on.

Question Answered: 

Both of those codes have something to do with the tranny. the p0700 is a transmission control system malfunction, or TCM. The p2767 is a speed control module malfunction. They more likely than not could be linked since the speed sensor is in the tranny, which would cause the control system malfunction code if the sensor is bad. Unfortunately the nest way to tell is have a professional with a scanner that can communicate with the TCM and pull the codes on that to see what the real problem is. Is the speedo working right?

Question Answered: 

Take it up to oreillys and have them clear the code. Its free and they can also pull current codes as well. I do it all the time. They actually just hand me the scanner when I ask for it when I walk in now. I think auto zone does it too but not sure. Don't have one of those near by

94-01 should be able to go in it. but make sure they have the same engine VIN number. i think its the fifth character and the 5.2 is a x i think, but dont quote me on that part.

It has the factory installed plugs on back but i cant find the little blue plug that the controller plugs into. I aked the people at the local dealership where it is but they were no help, as usual. Everything i find says it is under the dash but i cant find it. If anyone has foudn it, it would be very helpful as i need to pull a camper with it soon. Thankyou.

Question Asked: 

My 360 is burning a good amount of oil and would prefer not to sell the truck, especially considering the fact that a newer and better one worth my time will cost at least 10 grand, which I don't have. I found a used engine at a scrap shop for 500 bucks but since it doesn't have a vehicle with it I cant start to hear it run and everything. How would I go about checking it so I don't spend a lot of time and money on an engine that is in sores shape than the one I have now. Thanks for your help.

Question Asked: 

My truck uses around 4 quarts of oil every 150 miles i need to take the truck 1200 miles round trip. How bad of an idea is this if i keep a close eye on the oil level and everything? I know its not idea but i dont have a whole lot of choice in the matter right now. Thank you for your help.

Question Answered: 

Not sure about the ABS stuff, but my shift down cable has been broken for months now. (My idiot of a freind was trying to jump his truck off mine and revved the engine slightly to get more voltage out of the alternator and broke the shift down plastic connector off, 160 dollars to fix it at the dealership, can't fix it myself without a computer to reprogram the module in.) Before i figured out exactly what was happening and the resoning it just wouldn't shift down, now the cable is held on to the throttle assembly by a nail and some duct tape. You can drive without it, just don;t expeect it to shift when you want it to. As far as the ABS stuff goes i would definitly take it in if there is a recall on it, i wouldn't pass up the free service on it myself.

Question Answered: 

My 1999 does the same with all heating and cooling functions. I found this on a recall website, don't ask which i dont remember. What happens is when you get on the gas, the engine sucks more air from the intake, which is where your vaccum hoses for the HVAC run from. This extra pull to the engine takes away from the HVAC vaccum causing it to engage a different blower direction. It probably starts blowing out of the feet only or the defrost, thats what mine does. You can supposedly fix this by buying somekind of a bypass valve that goes on the T area up next to the firewall, however mine has it and it still does it. My truck came with it so I don't know how bad it was before this valve thing was put on but depending how how much it does it and if it only does it when you really put the petal to the metal like mine, I would leave it be instead of wasting your time and money on this valve thing.

Question Asked: 

This has happened twice now. My 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9Litre V-8 starts doing what feels like the shake of death. I'll be driving down the highway just fine, then all of sudden it starts shaking like no other, this time the Check Engine light blinked a couple of times then went off. It usually happens when i am driving up a hill and there is alot of stress on the engine. (Low RPM but still hauling heavily) This last time was the worst so far. It feels as though it is in the front of the truck, but i cant find any joint that are loose or bearings or anything like that. My mechanic uncle was with me the first time and he doesn't even have any idea what it could be since nothing seems to be loose. I dont think this matters, but my engine is burning oil pretty good, about 4 quarts every 150-175 miles. I also have new ball joints and u-joints on the front axle and new front ABS sensors, new tires, tie rod joints, front end alignment, rear bearings, and a few other things with the suspension that i cant think of off hand. Any questions about what was done just ask and i can find out. Thankyou for your help.

Question Asked: 

My jeep blows white smoke out of the tail pipe when i start it but stops after a few minutes. The engine check light is on and keeps coming after being cleared 3 times by a shop. 2 times by a shop once by a dealer. The code says that it has a misfire on the 8th cylinder but it has only misfired one time, all though it was shaking like crazy when it did it. It also lost all of its coolant once but hasnt lost any since. I had the spark plugs replaced to fix the misfire and seemed to but the computer doesnt seem to think so. Unfortunatly i havnt been driving it as much as i used to because to protect it from people at work, (no respect for nice looking vehicles), i dont know if that has any effect or not but im clueless and dont want to blow thousands of dollars at a dealer to find out that its not what i paid for. Thanks for help

Question Answered: 

If the whining is intermittent like it goes for a few seconds then stops for a few then goeas again it would probably be your AC compressor, mine does it to. Try turning the climate controls to off and wait a minute to see if it stops. If it doesnt stop it is probably your power steering fluid or pump itself. Or worse but probably not your torque converter.

Question Asked: 

When i drive over slight bumps in the road I feel a rattling type feeling in the wteering wheel not sure if this has to do with the fact that i have loose steering or not. Besides the loose steering I am having no other problems in the steering.

Question Asked: 

my 1999 dodge has been losing a lot of oil. by a lot i mean over 20 quarts in 1000 miles. I know its not a head gasket or plain old head because its not losing coolant. i know its not a leak because at that rat there should be oil all over the place under the hood and i put a peice fo cardboard under neath it to make sure, no drips. I hope someone can give me an idea of what to check and maybe and estimate on cost thanks

Question Asked: 

I have been told that you pull a plug in the front of the transmission and pour fluid in the top until it comes out, I ended up pouring a whole liter into it and still nothing came out. i am afraid to overfill it and cause something to fry. I do not see why Chevy couldn't just do like every one else and put a dip stick on the tranny
