My car had 117.000 miles on it,so i replaced the plugs and plug wires now car jumping in rpms(200-300 rpms) took to a shop says transmission is the problem,did not start untill did the tune up
When I start the engine it rattles loudly but goes away when I am up to speed. When I start the engine it makes the tapping/knocking sound, and gets louder when I accelerate. Once the car warms up, it goes away or can be heard faintly. Once I am driving at speed I can't hear the noise, mainly only at times of acceleration. Is this something that would be worth fixing? I have heard try to sell or trade in and replace the engine. Can this be fixed? Can I fix it?

Engine light started to go on after I hosed off the engine. Light blinks on and off. Not having any signs of a bad converter as discribed on the web. Dealer wants to jump right in and change converter, shouldnt we troubleshoot with new sensors first. Autozone ck'd w/ diagnostic, most likely Faulty HO2S, rich air/fuel ratio, lastly was faulty converter
what happens if i continue to drive the car with a head gasket problem.
101,750 miles. In past year, I've had 4 alighments & now all 4 tires are almost balled on outside edge of each tire(rotations done w/oil changes) rest of tires look great. Shocks seem fine, ride smooth, & got 70000+ on original rated tires. Before I buy 4 new tires, what should I have done to fix alignment issues? Have 115,000 now.
Is there a chance that autozone could scan, and reset?? Thanks for any and all suggestions! -Carl.
I first noticed that when using passing gear it would jump in and out of passing gear. I then noticed that in park or neutral I could not get the engine to rev to more than 4000 rpm. I have changed the spark plugs and the fuel filter to no effect. I have no idea where to go from here. I have been told that the rev limiter might be bad, but I can't find any info on that, and I am more inclined to think it might be the PCM? I had the codes checked and it is not showing any. The check engine light is not on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
