Rear=end clunking Sounds like the rear-end of the 2004 F150 Lariat is changing gears very hard. One place said I needed a rear-end expert but I took it to Goodyear and they it needed a slip yoke and fluid differential exchange. It does not seem this has fixed the problem. It has become more frequent in the past several months and sometimes it tries changing gears so hard, I'm not sure its going to change at all. Anyone else having this problem?


Too much grease? that is a load of u know what, I am aware of the slip yoke noise, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) form Ford, did he use the special Teflon Grease (a 100% must use) to lube the slip yoke? regular grease won't ... 2004 Ford F150

I have a 1998 GMC Sonoma, 2.2 liter, 4cyl, 2 wheel drive vehicle. Recently the check engine light has come on. When checked on computer diagnostic it was discovered that alarm was triggered by the knock sensor. In a case like this, is it a serious engine problem indicated or perhaps the spark plugs need to be changed? What is mostly likley the issue and how do i fix it. I normally like to do most of the minor repairs myself. Thankyou.


Try replacing the plugs. if the spark is weak,the fuel may not burn correctly.\015\012if the timing is off,it can do it too.\015\012low octane will cause it as well as carbon build up.\015\012i would put a fuel cleaner in the gas,ch ... 1998 GMC Sonoma

1995 Cadillac Seville (or Deville--I'm not sure which, it belongs to my dad) wasn't started for awhile and wouldn't start. We put battery charger on it and then it started, but suddenly all the lights flashed and it went dead again. I think the computer needs to be reset, but have no idea how. Are we supposed to put a code in?? The car manual doesn't seem to address problem.


Have the battery checked. It sounds like it is just a junk battery. ... 1995 Cadillac DeVille

Radiator Fan for 94 centry does not come on. Engine overheats. I assume temp sensor is faulty. I have hot wired the fan to ensure the fan does work, but without those wires... no luck. I hate to just replace things without some amount of confirmation that that is the problem, but I also needed to know for sure where it is located. I asume there are 2 sensors because the one sending the temp to the dash gauge seems to work ok, just nothing telling the computer to turn on the fan...


The ECM turns on the fan when the coolant sensor reaches a set temp. the fan is also turned on when the AC is on. there is also a fan relay in the circuit. none of these are very expensive. if the fan works when you apply direct voltage, the fan is g ... 1994 Buick Century

I think it is the transfer case on my 2004 GMC 2500HD 6.0L truck that is gone. It seems like when you load up the 4 wheel drive or turn sharp the chain binds up and snaps and gives a jolt. Just wondering what the part numbers are needed to change this out. I am sure it is the problem. the oil was right black in there as well. Both CV axl's have already been changed out.


Call local dealer give them info they will give you the parts needed. ... 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD

My 96 Jetta intermitently will not start unless I turn the alarm on and then back off. The last time I had to hit the panic button on my remote, turn it off, and then the car would start.

2002 ford explorer grinding noise when going forward at 5 mph or so. It seems as if it is braking when this happens. Have pulled drive shaft with car on stands and noise continues. After sitting for a couple of days I needed to move it and it ran fine, I drove 5 or 6 miles with no problems. Turned it off and one hour later needed to move and it did the same grinding. The diagnostic says anti skid. Seems like an electrical problem or maybe the transfer case shift motor to me. I need help on findi

My 1991 Pathfinder seems to have accelerating problems. When I step on the gas slowly, the idle seems to go too high and when I place my car on park, the idle seems to still go high... I was wondering if the problem could be that when my dad checked the transmission fluid, he put too much of the transmission fluid and now that's causing the accelerating problems??? Please help me... its my only way of transportation and I need to fix the problem right away before it gets any worse. Thankyou.


Yes that can be causing the issue and if it is not fixed ASAP you will have REALLY big problems instead of just having to drain some fluid. Please rate ... 1991 Nissan Pathfinder

My Kia Sorento won't gear down and accelerate when I floor it. Dealer says it's a sensor in the transmission and they need to drop the transmission ($400 labor) to replace the sensor. I have a feeling that it is an electronic problem as the problem seems to come and go. Disconnecting and reconnecting battery leads seem to resolve problem for a while but it always comes back.
