my 4x4 isn't working well, when I steer sharp it makes loud banging noises. the brake pedal shakes and steering wheel does too when braking making me think the rotors are bad. the vehicle is squirrely on the road and going down the road feels like I'm running on flat tires. Is there hope or is it time to move on? what kind of repairs am I looking at? I put a new transmission in it in 2010 so I am not sure why the 4x4 wont work.
check engine light is on. no increased heat per temp gauge. slight burning smell from the heater vents but no smoke. car is progressively getting worse about needing gas peddle applied until engine is warm or it will die when idle. I just had transmission flushed, oil changed and applied fuel inj cleaner to gas tank multiple times to try to correct this. what am I missing?
My car has to be cranked once and then the second time it will start. It will never start on the first try no matter how long I crank it. What needs fixed?
My mountaineer will not idle in cold weather and once warm it is still rough. There is not a check engine light on. I just had the transmission replaced last year. Once the cold weather has appeared the idle has started to get worse. This vehicle has high miles. What can the causes be??
