Was stuck in snow yesterday. today after driving@8 miles I shifted into 4wd. I heard a clunk noise, then the trans began having trouble with gear selection. The indicator light on the shift lever doesn't light up properly. I now have only P,R,N&a forward gear(2nd I think)Service Eng Soon is lit. When it goes into a gear, it clunks. Could this be a result of having snowpacked tightly under the vehicle yesterday?

I hear rocker arm tapping and a lower end tapping when the engine is started and continues for about 4 minutes. The oil pressure gauge reads low for that time. about 140,000 miles on engine.

My abs light stays on all the time. I had it checked for a code and it showed that there is no signal from the speed sensor on the drivers side. I replaced the speed sensor and it did not cure the problem. I took off the control module and sent it in for repair but there was no problems with the module. I checked for open wires from the speed sensor to the control module with no problems. Could there be a bad computer problem?

don't these need to be changed at 100,000 miles

the noise happenes when slowing down

Will changing the knock sensor fix it? It has pinged a little for a while and now its getting worse mostly when it heats up. Any help would be appriciated-thanks-Ken

How to install a water pump?

Having difficulty getting the plastic hubcaps to stay on the hubs. I don't know if the threading on the inside is bad or if they were just built poorly, but they constantly seem to come loose and some of them will not even tighten on the lugs. Is anyone else having the same issue? Also any recommendations for either getting the current hubcaps to stay on or alternatives?

I have a random misfire code. But if you watch it on a scan tool its only the driver side usually cylinder 1 and 3. I have replaced all 8 plugs and wires. I have replaced all 8 injectors, and i have replace the coils for cylinder 1 and 3. The truck still only misfires. But it only misfires after you have driven it for a while and you shut it off then restart it. Pretty much your tipical gas fill up is enough time for it to misfire when you start the engine back up. But if the truck sits long enough it will not misfire or if you take it up the road and beat on it a little it will clean out and run fine until the next time you shut it and start it back up quickly. What could it be? The only other thing i could think of is that the cat is getting plugs when it gets hot and making the engine miss. But that still doesn't explain why it only does it after you shut it down hot.
