Sorry, sounds like the diff or tranny is broken but if your real lucky its just a wheel-sensor for the ESP...;)
(I would tow/trailer it to service, just to be sure, its expencive stuff!)

95 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking ATF, shudders when driving


Bank1 sensor 3 O2 heater. This can cause the shudder as engine adjustments are made.

The O2 sensors have built in heating elements to rapidly heat the part and save fuel. Its possible that engine is trying to adjust to compensate and is why it shudders.

As for trans leak, get it up on the rack for inspection. Could be simple pan gasket. Quick change oil/lube could see it.

05 Passat TDI- ESP light will occasionally flash and when it does it causes the car to shudder, hesitate like the transmission is slipping, and if the cruise is engaged it will disengage it. I can turn off...


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

I havea 2009 tuscon sx. the ESP OFF light comes on occassionally affecting the gearbox & not allowing the car to get out of gear. the ESP OFF button on the dash doesn't do anything. We have taken it...


Whenever that ESP/ESC warning light comes on, there is a diagnostic code set (DTC). This code tells the technician which component in the system CAUSED the ESP/ESC control module to turn ON the warning light!

Did the technicians SCAN for any DTC's? Since the vehicle is a 2009, the service department is supposed to have Hyundai's GDS (Global Diagnostic System) available to do this. If they don't have this equipment, find a service department that DOES!

The drive light flashes


Standard manual advice is:
The ‘‘D’’ indicator comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II). If it flashes while driving (in any shift position), it indicates a possible problem in the transmission.
If the malfunction indicator lamp comes on along with the ‘‘D’’ indicator, there is a problem in the automatic transmission control system. Avoid rapid acceleration, and have the transmission checked by your dealer as soon as possible.
Hope this at least helps you know there might be a problem.

Does a mazda 323f 2001 model need gearbox oil change after some milage or is it a sealed unit?


Automatic and standard transmission needs fluid change every 24 months. On automatic transmissions, the gasket needs to be changed as well as the filter. On standard transmission there is a drain plug that can be loosened up, and refilled through the refill hole. Standard transmission use gear oil, while automatic transmission uses automatic transmission fluid.
