do you mean the vehicle won't accelerate?
which solenoid? do you have an engine code? what are your symptoms?
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.
what is the code? P2702? let me know. does it feel like you hit the brakes when driving along when this happens or is it just after you stop?
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. -RayRay
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.
the transmission is a 350 turbo.
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.
chain may be stretched. making noise. truck has 300,000 miles on it. ran it moderately hard. any ideas on the estimate for labor? i know parts cost already.
how much did they charge to repl. the tranny?
