Question Answered: problems with down shifting

sounds like your transmission is having a problem, the PCM may be intermittently failing, the MAP, MAF or TPS sensor could be bad or going bad. let me know if you find out the solution.

Hey there. First get a computer or rent one (requires deposit but you get it all back when you return it) from Autozone. Hook it under the dash and see what the codes are you are getting first. It could save you a lot of time guessing what is wrong. after you do that let me know and i'll try to figure it out. But, yes it could be the fuel filter and/or fuel pump acting up. But you should have some codes read to make sure it is not something else.
Question Answered: Gas is going into the oil. I fill up with gas and 2-3 days later the gas is gone

the engine timing is 180 degrees out of phase. probably someone put the timing belt on and either forgot that the oil pump under the rotor takes 2 - 4 times (depending on vehicle) before it matches up with the #1 firing. injectors are firing but not with spark so the fuel is just leaking past the valve guides into the crankcase.

i'm just using his login to ask this: it doesnt leak for awhile thn all of the sudden most of the tranny fluid leaks out. it's dripping out of the shaft coming from transmission to the u-joint. is there a seal in there? this truck is a chevy 1983 model c10. the repairpal doesnt go back this far.
thanks in advance.

Question Answered: I need to know if its worth it to keep it or get a new car!

There are many things that can cause this. A burnt out catalytic converter can cause additional backpressure and heat to cause sensors, coils, and the engine itself to overheat very quickly. I found one 2000 kia with the catalytic converter installed backwards that caused it to burn out and stop most exhaust flow. Overheated coils can cause the same symptoms but that can be caused by another problem as i have outlined above. an exhaust problem once threw off the transmission shift control sensor in one job i did and that threw a code to the car's computer which caused it to run rough because of false sensor readings.
Question Asked: JEEP wont FIRE up. cranks fine
May 19, 2010, 08:47 AM
actually this is a 1988 Cherokee Pioneer. 2wd 4.0l 6-cylinder. no auto windows and no check engine light. I want to know what code reader to use or how to find one for this jeep. Also, I need to know what would prevent the thing from firing up. I replaced the rear main seal on the transmission. It was running rough and i found out the Fuel injectors were mis-firing causing fuel to enter the oil pan. After that happened it wouldnt start. I replaced almost all the sensors. heres the list: crank (speed)sensor, oil pump (rebuilt it dual gear type), entire harness for fuel injectors, new fuel pump, cleared out the fuel line, new fuel filter, new rotor and coil, new EGR and O2 sensors, even tried a different brain (computer), changed oil and new plugs and wires, cleaned out rockers and pushrods then re-lubed them. Still no start up. Fire is good at the plugs and the injectors fire fuel. any other ideas? I have done a few other things i cannot think of as i'm writing but need the answer to these 2 questions.
Thanks. emailis email@example.com
