gauge bounces from empty to full

When I shift gears it is difficult to do so sometimes and there is a loud noise when I shift from park to reverse and I don't know why. It only happens maybe 1 out of 50 times or so. But when it does it is strange it is hard to shift into reverse when it does that. It seems like it is stuck in Park. And I cannot get it out unless I put a lot of pressure on the gear shift and then that is when I hear the loud clunking sound when it shifts from park to reverse. Does anyone have any idea why.

I;ve repaired it once prior, can I( just take it out of the system?

My problem was a empty resevoir of Power Steering fluid

I have replaced the water pump and the thermostat, and it is still over heating. I am leaking Radiator Fulid, but I cannot find the leak, or where it is coming from. Are there any other places that the leak could be coming from instead of the water pump, the thermostat or the Radiator. Is ther a hose that I am not aware of. Please let me know. I fill up the radiator and the reserve tank every day because it is gone by the next morning even if haven't driven it. Also if I drive even 5 miles with the airconditioning off. When I turn off the car I smell Radiator Fulid buring, and when it over heats Steam comes out from an area where the spark plugs are. I am at a complete loss where the problem is. Somone Please Help Me!

After I replaced the water cooled alternator, I added coolant but the car still got overheated within a few minutes of idling.

checked fuses all ok

Looking at buying a used TSX and person was honest the car didn't start like 5 times but in the last year seems to be fine.

The problem happens after driving at higway speeds for apbout a hour then the transmission will downshift onto lower gears and will not go back into 4th

I am new to the world of 4x4 and rarely use it sadly but when I went through this mud hole the other day and got back on hard packed dried up mud and was turning around the transfer case started grinding. Took it out of 4 wheel drive and when I started back to the mud hole I put it back into 4 high and it seemed fine.Now I know you aren't supposed to use 4 wheel drive on hard dry surfaces but I didn't think that included dried up mud.It happened once before in soft sugar sand but I thought maybe my leg hit it out of 4 high due to where the shifter is located.. Any suggestions?

gas mixeed with diesel

My mechanic replaced my transmission because the codes were coming up on his diagnostics machine. However, the car was still driving rough (slow at accelerating from 1st to 2nd and 3rd to 4th and try to stall but then jerking back into geat). He thought the transmission replacement may have been had so he put in another one and it continued to do the same thing. Now he is mentioning replacing the engine control module. He is usually very honest, however, I have been reading in others areas that this might not be necessary? Please help with this if you can. Also, he is saying the part itself is around $1,000, but I heard mention the part with labor should only be around $1,000. Please input on this if possible, as well. Thanks in advance for ANY help for this frustrated car owner!

im trying to set the timing on this car
