My 2000 silhouette willnot change gear 5 or to overdrive

Sounds like the torque converter lockup is not working. IT could be that a solenoid has failed or the torque converter is bad. This is not going to be cheap

My 2000 oldsmobile silhouette while driving down

Well you need to do some investigating. You need to determine if it is ignition or fuel causing the problem. The cheapest way it to purchase a fuel injection pressure tester and hook it up leaving the guage where you can easily see it from the drivers seat. Take it for a ride til it acts up and watch the guage. If you lose fuel pressue then you got your issue. If not then you need to start testing individual ignition parts such as the ignition module and crank sensor

While driving 2ooo silhouette van, the rpm gauge goes erratic and the change engine oil light comes on, followed by battery light, then it feels like transmision slips or en gine stalls and comes back on...

sounds like your alternator is about to go out, not feeding enough currant to the electrical components that need it, i.e. ECM , ESM..and so on.
you may want to have that checked or replaced.
always a good idea to replace the battery when replacing the alternator.

Hi there, Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual at your local AP store for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step RR section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy

Estimate of labor charges for replacing alternator on a 2002 Silhouette.

Typically the Silhouette and the Transport are the same vehicle. I spent about 45 minutes to replace the Alternator on my former Transport. It depends upon the prevailing Labor Rate what you will have to pay. I would guess somewhere around $75-$200 fro Labor alone.

How do t replace the alt. in a 2000 olds silhouette

Remove the two front motor mounts mounted on the frame above the radiator.This is not a weight bearing mount it is for vibration. The engine will not move much once removed. Ratchet the motor forward using a ratcheting strap hooked to the black arm that extends above the motor located on the right side. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the two mounting bolts on the face of the alternator and the one behind the alternator. Remove the connections and alternator. To reinstall, reverse the process. You will not have enough clearance to remove the alternator without ratcheting the motor forward.

How do I change the spark plugs in 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 2.5L V6?

I did a Google search "How do you replace the rear spark plugs on a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus?" and found this link:

I haven't tried it yet and am thinking of purchasing a Chilton manual just in case, but as far as explanations go the one at the very bottom of the page in the link sounds the most legitimate so far.

Besides, I have to pay you guys $9.99 for one answer that I can get for free; or I can get the Chilton and have a whole heap of answers for around $20.
