My 2005 Nissan Armada Reverse sensor system is not working. The button stays in the "OFF" position no matter how many times I press the button. Also, periodically when driving, the brake light on the dashboard illuminates. At that point, when I press the brakes, there is a grumbling sound in the front of the vehicle and stopping becomes difficult. This problem, the sound and the light, goes away when I turn the ignition off and restart the vehicle (sometimes I have to start the vehicle 3 o

Usually my problem occors when the weather is damp prior to rain or after its finished raining. sometimes it stops dead in mid acceleration, or simply idling at a stop sign. sometimes the engine light appears, other times it doesn't. but the most common thing it does is that it chuggs first, loses power, steering nonexisting cannot push down brake pedal (locks up). As the car is still rolling, cannot turn off ignition or shut off car. I need to then put it in park to restart.

2004 Ford F150 4.6 has a hesitation problem when pressing the gas pedal. Seems as it if it is not idling properly and it occassionally cuts off while sitting at light or stop sign.

If you hear air it could be a vacuum leak. check the intake manifold for any cracked vacuum lines. or your fuel injectors are clogged. ... 2004 Ford F150
