Don assured me that he would find out what was causing my truck to surge. They claimed it had a ghost in the truck but they finally found the demon and exorcised it.

Questions Answered by Gary Johnston Truck and Auto Repair Inc.
Transmission Was Serviced By A Mechanic And He Said It Will Need To Be Rebuilt Soon. on 1998 Ford Explorer
Is the transmission experiencing any problems, or are you going off what this individual told you based on his experience? If you are not having any problems and the transmission is operating and functioning properly. Then I would not worry about it. Some people will say things with no regard to how it affects the owner of the vehicle. The truth be know, your trans may go forever of may fail in a month or two, but the same can be said for any vehicle. On a service it is normal to have some metal on the magnet of the transmission pan. I wouldn't worry about it unless you are having problems. If you want to replace it. I would also recommend a reman 3yr /100k mile warranty over a local transmission builder. But that is just my opinion.
Car Won't Start Intermittedly, Until Key Fob Lock, Unlock Is Used Second Time. on 2000 Mercury Mystique
There is a module called the GEM module that controls the remote key function, and the PATS< OR PASSIVE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM. I would suspect that to be the cause, I can check that with the IDS of fords factory scan tool. If the vehicle thinks it is being stolen then it will disable the start function. Could be related.
1997 Ford Taurus on 1997 Ford Taurus
The fuel pump screen is attached to the in tank fuel pump to keep debris from entering the fuel pump. If you don't want to mess with it you do have another filter on the car that will protect the rest of the engines fuel system. But sadly the fuel pump will have no protection. I would recommend replacing both the fuel pump and the fuel pump screen while you have the tank down it is very labor intensive by your self to drop a fuel tank not to mention dangerous. Good luck. Why did you drop the tank to begin with what kind of problem lead you to drop the fuel tank?
Seat Belt Latch on 2007 Saturn Vue
Some times you can access the seat belt latch with the seat forward but you may damage or mark either the seat or the seat track. So it would be better to remove the seat as not to damage any part of the interior.
Power Windows, Door Locks, Power Seats And Trunk Release Suddenly Stopped Working on 1994 Lincoln Continental
We need to check the circuit usually all of that stuff goes through the GEM module. Hope this helps.
My Car Will Suddenly Die When Driving In Hot Summer. No Warning Lights Come On. on 2000 Mercury Mountaineer
I agree, a heater core will not cause an intermittant stall condition as you are experiencing. Sounds more like fuel or Ignition, meaning ignition module, cam and crank sensors, ignition coil, fuel pump for example. I would recommend you get a professional diagnosis from a dependable shop, BBB listings are a good way to find reputable shops. Good Luck.

Wrench Sysmbol on 2006 Mercury Milan
Sounds like a common problem, sometimes when an air filter is replaced either the MAF sensor or IAT sensor can come unplugged, Both of these can affect the fuel and throttle response. I would check for any stray plugs or wire connections that are just hanging around the air tube and or the filter box.
Gas Guage Malfunction on 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer
Yes, you can buy a replacement cluster from the dealer, or you can have yours replaced, look in the yellow pages for someone who rapairs radios and insturment clusters, should cost about $150.00 - $250.00, the insturment bezel just pops off you may need to unplug a few switches which may be alittle difficult. Then it is just plug and play.
