I have a 89 jeep wrangler with a straight four. It feels it very underpowered. To get to Walmart I have to go up a 6% grade. If I floor it while going up It just goes the same speed. Is this normal? It has an intake, exhaust and a test pipe. I know it can put more parts in it but I just wanna know if anybody else experience this.
My rear differential makes a noise when I accelerate. It only does it if I have maintained a speed between 30-50 mph and then hit the gas to accelerate, and it only does it in 3rd and 4th gears. The fluid level is full on my differential and I have maintained it pretty meticulously. It isn't a grinding sound, and the truck doesn't lose any power, it is almost just a groaning sound coming from the rear diff. Any suggestions on what it might be?
Theres air bubbles in the radiator.
The fans wont work
The heat works sometimes (mostly when you step on it)
doesnt say its overheating, but the coolants coming out of the resevoir when i drive it.
Drives nice though.
could the sensor be messing it up?
What do you think the problem is?
We already changed the water pump, thermostat(not a SUBARU one though. Should i get a subaru one?) and the radiator. We didnt change the heater core.
my 85 Corvette's passenger side headlight isnt working right. it will open but when it closes it sounds like the motor keeps turning and grinding. i thought this mightve been a problem in the relay not telling the motor to stop turning but i switched the relays for left and right headlights and the right one still wasnt working right so if its not the relay then what is it?
Believed to have run out of fuel at 475 miles (fuel guage inop.) Dropped fuel filter (empty), filled with diesel, cranked, would not fire. Opened to bleed at injector and injector pump, no fuel at injector. Added 10 gallons, primer seems to not respond. Pumped it over 100 times, nothing. Dropped tank, changed fuel sending unit with another, believed but not known to be good. In KOEO, both sending units unresponsive. What is required in order for the primer plunger to bring up fuel? Does the sending unit have to be intact, does the ring that secures it to the tank have to be tight?
I have a '97 jetta gt that i've been driving for a while, it's been driving alright besides not keeping engaged in 4th on occasion.
Recently however the engine has been shaking, almost chugging and not allowing me to accelerate. Yesterday, while my car was in the parking lot the alarm randomly went off on its own, and when I came back to it the alarm sensor (red light) was no longer blinking like normal. Just a couple minutes after I left my school my car made it down the road before chugging slowly to a stop and turning off. I turned it back on to pull over and it barely started up.
They only way i can currently unlock my car is by using the key. This is annoying because i have to turn my car off every time i go to unlock the trunk. Now, when i press the trunk unlock button on my fob, the lights flash on my car and it makes a sliding noise as if it is trying to pull open the trunk, yet it does not open. I'm positive it is an issue with the trunk itself, since the car reacts in such a way. I want to know if anyone has any idea what might be the issue, and if their are any steps i can take to fix it?
