My van is a 1988 i had my automatic transmission rebuilt and now when im on the freeway it seems like its in 2nd instead of drive. its revving high and putting out alot more heat. They said its a three speed transmission and its fine. what else can cause it to rev like its in 2nd? it shifts 2 times. something is not right cause it never sounded like that before. also how can you go 65 miles an hour in 3rd gear?
my passengers state the back speakers are too loud.
Radio don't work after putting a new battery and air conditioning won't turn off
New thermostat, reservoir very full, heater blows cold. It overheats in 5 minutes @ 2k rpm rev. Both radiator hoses are hot. I don't know what the next step is.
Sometimes it wont shift to first gear and sometime it does and vice versa with the second gear
Heated seats, alarm key, interior lights when car is off and doors won't lock when pressing button on door when car is off.
My defroster is not blowing hot air until I actually drive my van. A/C worked fine all summer. Just cold air from defroster in front while sitting idle. What could be wrong, do you think?
gas gauge needle goes pass full
My turn signals intermittenly do not work. When I push emergency flasher on and off the turn signals then work. No rhyme or reason for when they stop working.
And it still won't start
It's annoying. Toyota dealer wants $300 just to look. Asked several mechanics if can disconnect seat belt lamp on dash - said it was connected with other items. True?
Any inexpensive ways to resolve? I don't need the flashing lamp since the seat belt otherwise works.
My daughter's 2004 Mustang V6 AC/Heater blower is not pushing air at all. I've tried all four settings plus; cold, hot & AC. No air and no noise from the blower. In another thread, I read about checking fuses F2-24 & F2-33. They are both fine. Can't find the single fusebox on the passenger side, near the strut (but I'm not sure it applies here anyway).
We live in the South and it's still hot. She's a college student and I'm retired due to physical problems --and we have very little extra cash. So, any help with diagnosis & repair would be appreciated.
I am not very mechanically inclined. However, I do have an OBDII reader if I need to check codes. I also have a Radio Shack 22-178 multi-meter, but I have no idea how to use it (settings, nothing). Therefore, I would need simpleton instructions -- how to set the multi-meter first -- if you want me to check current to wires.
Thank you in advance to anyone who will assist us.
Replaced EGR & ECM and still is on. Where to check for low voltage to EGR
lately the dashboard instrement lights seem dimmer and a few days ago the stereo wouldnt turn on. screens just black. not sure if the two are related. 3v weeks ago i did have my main battery replaced due to a dead cell.
Car would not start now and then, i would jump it it would be fine. All of sudden it wont even click over and the dash instrumental light indacators are not illuminated. Not even getting power to my windows. Please, help.
