Wiper motors connect to linkage which connects to the wiper arms, this combination of linkage is called the wiper transmission (transmits power from the motor to the arms). You may have a bushing that connects the transmission linkage to wiper or motor that has failed and linkage is rubbing and hitting, If you need this looked at by a shop pleas call Roy 757-456-0722 and make to to let him know if you will need a $10 rental car while yours is being repaired.

Is fluid has been overheated especially if it hasn't been replaced or serviced recently I would remove the transmission pan and filter and inspect for debris. If looks good put new filter,pan and fluid and test drive before automatically buying a new transmission, but if there are a lot of debris especially if burnt then time to replace. Any questions and if you want a $10 rental car while we service or replace your transmission please call Roy tomorrow morning.

Ford uses a variety of controls depending on the trim level from manual to fully automatic controls. Most use in the early 90s used a combination of cables and vacuum to change HVAC settings. These also have been found to have restricted heater cores and occasionally more than one problem. I vacuum system and not obvious problem most well equipped will use a emission system smoke machine to find leaking actuators, hoses or controllers. Occasionally clips, arms or doors, some inside HVAC air housing box can also come apart, jamb or break, from insects/rodents, debris put in vents/dash defroster that fall in. Newer fully automatic systems and a few older use electric motors instead of stiff wire cables or vacuum actuators, If you have not found cause or need help correcting and would like a$10 a day rental vehicle while yours is being repaired please call Roy 757-456-0722

Question Answered: My car is having an irregular firing cause the rpm to move up & down when engage
October 08, 2015, 01:56 PM
the ECM/computer some time called brain box could be the problem, but not that often is it the problem. Have you check all your fluid levels, coolant engine oil, transmission fluid and made sure they were not low. There are many things that can cause fluctuating RPM and power. Is the check engine light on or has it ever been on while engine is running? Have you check for any current or history fault codes? If you are still having these problems and would like it diagnosed please call Roy 456-0722 and make sure to let him know if you would like a $10 rental car while yours is being repaired.
