Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Corvette

Helpful reminder

This may seem unnecessary, but it's something I've been doing and it helps me. Whenever I buy the first filter for a vehicle, I tear off the top of the box/package and write what it's for and then toss it into the glove compartment. Then on my next trip to W*L-M**T, I just carry it in with me. It keeps me from looking it up once in the store.

1999 Mitsubishi Mirage- Bogging down when flooring the accelerator?


Hi there,

Your vehicle incorporates an on-board diagnostic (OBD) computer, which monitors behaviour of your vehicle's engine and ommission related cicruits.

This sounds like an electrical issue (I suspect perhaps your Throttle Position Sensor - TPS, or similar circuit). Your OBD computer will have stored the appropriate code/s causing this condition.

Have your codes read by an approved Mitsubishi Agent, who will then be able to advise what will be required to fix this issue.

Having your codes read should ALWAYS be the first step, as this will save you $'s and time, elimination the need to purchase unnecessary parts.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Oldsmobile Silhouette possible problem(s), just questions currently.


First & only suggestion I have, is get rid of it, and any van type vehicle

They all are unsafe in an accident

Having once owned a trans repair shop, I will tell you they all have bad
transaxles & that is what you have

It is tens years old,the trans was done no matter what vehicle you bought

You mentioned water in headlight & more issues

That vehicle is going to cost too much to straighten out --- UNLESS
you do (100%) 100% of ALL WORK yourself & the trans is not something you can do yourself or even install one

I just bought a 95 blazer yesterday and it seems to be stuck in 4 wd


have you checked if the vacuum actuator is working? this actuator would be found underneath your battery. you will have to take of the battery tray to get to the actuator. if you can find a way to connect the battery, once you've taken off the battery tray and start the vehicle to test the functions on the 4WD switch that would be very helpful. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL AND MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO WAY THE BATTERY WILL TOUCH THE FAN OR BELT WHEN DOING THIS!! Once you've engaged the 4HI or 4LO, the actuator should be sucked in. when you've set the 2HI, the actuator should be out, to the normal position. Also check to see if the vacuum line is good, most wear with time and tear in other places. hope this helped you. Is your 4WD switch blinking or does it stay on when you change the settings? NOTE that the pic shows the actuator in the normal (out) 2HI position. see pic below to see what the actuator looks like : azzkikronu_1.jpgazzkikronu_2.jpg

can not find the cabin filter on my 1994 Dodge Caravan--it is not under the glove compartment? van smells bad when air conditioner/heater is on- you suggested to clean the cabin filter but no one seems to know where it is???


I've had Caravans for many years and never had that problem however, if there is a cabin filter in the vehicle it is inside the air exchange box and you will have to open it to find the filter. Most likely in the top.
