Question Asked: Check engine light on
September 22, 2010, 06:10 PM
The check engine light in my 1999 escort lx keeps coming on. A diagnostic test revealed that there was ' Transmission slipage ' or that the fluid may be low. The fluid is fine, and there is NO NOTICEABLE slipping. Every once in awhile, there is a slight hesitation, like when speeding back up after slowing down. It shifts through the gears just fine, only jerking slightly when the car is very hot. I am at a loss.... any advice?
Question Asked: another issue
March 18, 2009, 08:20 PM
This truck has yet another issue... I am at my wits end !! The service engine light just came back on and I had it checked on a diagnostic machine which told me I have " Random Cylinder Misfire " What is the main cause of that problem? I know it can be as simple as a bad plug or wire, or something as serious as a fuel injector, but how do I find out for sure?"
Question Asked: tire pressure
March 14, 2009, 03:16 PM
I cannot determine what the correct tire pressure is for this truck. The tires say one thing and the sticker on the door says another. According to the door, I should have 50 psi in the front and 80 psi in the back. Why would the amounts be different? I am a first time truck owner, so please forgive the ignorance. I just want to make sure my truck gets the best gas mileage I can get.

When our truck is started it acts like it floods itself and often dies immediately. After it dies one time, the truck then starts up just fine. What is the source of this issue? A new throttle posistioning sensor was installed recently, but the issue remains unsolved...please help !!

Car Review: 1996 GMC Suburban 2500
March 10, 2009, 10:46 PM
We bought a 96 Suburban used and the only issue we have had was some sort of module in the transmission had a bad ground wire. A fairly inexpensive repair kit solved the issue and the transmission is working fine now. The interior is nice and roomy and very comfortable to ride in on long trips. The sound system freaks out from time to time and requires us to pull the main fuse and let the system reset. Other than that, and the 454 big block which is hard on fuel, we are totally satisfied with this GMC product.
