I had this car for two weeks it was driving good, after being on the highway it started to slow down. It went down to 30 mph and now only pushing ten. I noticed the fuel filter was busted so i changed it and still nothing. Had it check on the diagnostics machine nothing came up about thr tranny. So im really lost. I need help figuring out what it is so it can get fixed properly. Please help...

When I'm backing out or pulling in while the wheel is turned, it's extremley hard to turn and it jerks a little bit. No noise, and power steering fluid is full. Also when I'm going between 65 and 70 the wheel shakes pretty bad. Tire pressure is good and they've been balanced.

The check engine light is on. The clerk at O'Reilly's told me that the engine is saying "oxygen sensors" needed. How many?

shifter can be in park reverse or drive the car tries to go forward,dipstick blew out spraying fluid on engine

It has happened several times in the past few days, and begins to rev after about 15 seconds. I turn it off after it gets too high in order to prevent possible motor damage.

While taking off or even driving the transmission will sometimes drive, I could be traveling at 50 miles per hour and all of a sudden it starts dragging and it backs down to below 20 mph, after a couple minutes it kicks back into speed. I believe this is very dangerous and it scares me. I have giving it a synthetic oil change, full tune up and replaced two expensive senors. Nothing has worked and the shop that I deal with said the diagnostis check shows no more codes. I am at my witts end and am not sure what else I can do to fix the problem. It seems like I have put more noney into it then the money I spent at the dealership to buy it. Could you please give me some more options that are not so much of guess work? The check engine light stays on.

I have a check engine light that stays on. The scanner is saying one code P0501=(vehicle speed sensor) .I have replaced the speed sensor on top of the transmission. Light has been on for 3 months. When i cleared the code after and did a drive cycle light comes back always. I have tried everything including bringing it to 2 different garages. No one knows what is wrong with it. I'm going on almost 2 months with no inspection because my ready monitors for emission test are never ready. Anyone know what else could be causing this problem with the check engine light?
