A few weeks ago while climbing a steep hill @~50-55 mph under a heavy rainstorm a sudden train of pushes were felt & speed came down to ~35 mph. The symptoms repeated at a second hill right after the first one. It has also happened in flat roads after that. After checking the codes it says: P0507. Have tried at the internet but the code-vehicle combination has elluded me; all I find is another problem in the vehicle or the problem at another vehicle.
How to proceed from here would be appreciated. Keep in mind that I'm not a mechanic but have worked as an Electronic Tech., also many years ago repaired my 20R engine from a Celica-1978.

Okay I was driving and I notice that my van didn't have oil as I was driving the van shut down and it was smoking and oil leaked out the bottom of it. Is that a real sign of damage? Or can I put oil in it and still be able to drive it after the fact.

Just did head gasket and cleaned absolutely everything spotless. Now car runs crappy and bogs out when the heater motor is turned off. Yes off. And throws a cam sensor code. What would cause this? Bad pcm??

It Idles little high and while sitting at a stoplight the Idle goes low and lower and then engine turns off.

My turn signals don't work unless I hold the lever up or passenger side and down and push forward or drivers side, The mechanic wants to chage $120 or labor to put the new switch in, is that an appropriate amount to charge?

It was making a rattling noise. I added tranny fluid. Noise disappeared, now car wont shift out of 1st gear or into reverse.

why does the module under the coils go bad?

Been looking for the Module and relay behind glove box. Can't seem to find.Key only year old, don't know how to use voltage meters. Found a wide relay on right side,a cube relay middle, little more to left, cube relay, told there's one more(TDM relay) is it behind something? I can hear the clicking, can't pin point? ? Leonard

I know its low on fluid due to steering stiffness and noise when turnin0 so i cant find the filling and checking spout help

Every time I connect the windshield wiper fluid container, my battery dies. The mini-pump is still connected to the cables but my car only dies when its plugged into the container.

It putts and back fires and then dies

The left turn signal was no longer resolving after turns.

OIl light keeps coming on and it doesn't need oilps

The wire stays hot even without the key a penny fell in the library hole and shorted it out

Just bought the car, found a guy to do brakes, but I have to buy the parts, so brake shoes for the rear are easy to find, but the drum is a little harder. I don't know the last time brakes have been done, and it sounds bad, but do I have to have new drums each time I switch out the brake shoes?

New battery installed. Oil light was coming on at stop or when slowing when restarts sounds like loud exhaust and a slapping sound. Is it the timimg

No fuses plowed it works sometimes

Rattling noise when driving down the road, and solid thump when a dips in the road

When driving down the road you can hear it hey rattling in the back when you go on a dip sometimes feels like it hits something

Was driving yesterday and car started running hot added water but it was going straight in my oil? Someone said I might have a blown head gasket so I added bars leaks block seal intake &radiator tonight it seems too be holding water but idling rough

My key won't unlock steering or start the car

Is there any other reason than changing the key lock to get car steering unlocked for starting.

Air isn't blowing hard like it used to, stops blowing when I press the gas, then slowly starts blowing threw random vents,, but stI'll not very hard..

What could be causing that?

The bulbs are good. The fuses are good. But my turn signals won't come on. My break lights work, so do my head lights. So do I need to replace the turn signal switch?

The wiring harness on the front passenger side needs to be replaced. How do I replace this from where it plugged into the ABS module on the wheel to the other end?

The stereo is just stock and only has a radio. No tape deck or CD player.

The compressor doesn't turn on when I turn the AC on.
