When the check engine light is on the remote start will not work. Once the light is out it will work again.
Question Answered: Can't drive over 40 mph!

There too many possibilities to list.. The most common problem is fuel pressure issues due to a bad pump, but it could also be ignition breakdown, stopped exhaust system or a bad transmission.. Does the car sound asthmatic, like it can't breathe? If so it may be the catalytic converter stopped up. Some basic testing will be necessary to figure out what is going on with this one.

Question Answered: Driver wdw wont roll down when the engines on but with my keys on engine off it

You ,most likely have a bad drivers door module. It controls the windows and tell the radio to turn off when you get out of the car. Here is the test procedure, but you really should have someone like Freedom Auto read the system with a scanner before you waste a lot of time chasing your tail. Also the DDM has to be programmed to the car. 1. . The DDM fuses include fuse 20 (20 amp) of the Battery Junction Box (BJB), and fuses 7 (5 amp) and 22 (10 amp) of the Central Junction Box (CJB). 2. Access the Driver Door Module (DDM) and perform power and ground testing at the module connection. The DDM is located inside the driver's door itself and will require removing the door panel for access. 3. If the DDM power and ground circuits appear to be ok, it will suggest failure of the DDM.
Question Answered: Coolant Leak
February 21, 2017, 01:47 PM
there are 2 coolant lines running to the throttle body and they serve as an intake air warmer for colder climates. You can bypass this by connecting the 2 hoses together to keep the flow going but not through the throttle body. A piece of metal tubing and a couple of clamps will do it. The plug that came out is the cap for where the coolant passages are drilled. It can be replaced if you can find the right size to tap in there. John Miller Freedom Automotive Auto Mojo Radio
Question Answered: fuel pump running all the time when van is running
February 15, 2017, 11:35 AM
You need a minimum of 45 psi fuel pressure for this to run right. You can have fuel coming out of the line but not enough pressure to operate the injectors properly. Dodge/Ram had a problem with fuel pumps. John Miller Freedom Automotive Auto Mojo Radio
Question Answered: change the oil in my explorer sport trac after that i dont have oil pressure
February 13, 2017, 07:30 AM
First question is do you really have no oil pressure or just a false reading? Does the engine make rattling noise? If so you need to check the oil level with the dip stick first, then double check that you used the right filter. If those are good I would recommend towing it to a shop you trust and having it checked out. Question, how long since the last oil change before this one?

Question Answered: I'm thinking about purchasing a 2010 Traverse. I noticed the car fax states the
January 31, 2017, 07:32 AM
Yes, it can be true. However, we always recommend an independent inspection when you are buying a used car. A pre-purchase inspection can help prevent buying a disaster of a car. At Freedom we do a 2 level inspection. First is visual and a road test, that is no charge. Second is more in depth check that takes about an hour and cost 110. That can save you a lot of money later.

You will almost certainly be looking at a transmission rebuild or replacement
Question Answered: Replaced alternator and battery light is still on
January 23, 2017, 09:45 AM
Chief49 If you have replaced the alternator and battery and the light is still on we either have a bad replacement alternator (possible but not likely) or there is another problem with the system. We need to check the circuit to and from the alternator to be sure that it is getting the command to charge and that the charge can actually go to the battery. We have seen problems with wiring on these Fords. I would be happy to check it for you at Freedom Auto. John Miller Freedom Auto Auto Mojo Radio Show
