The first thing you must check, and probably the cheapest.

clean the map sensor with some cheap spray from radioshack or another shop where you can buy resistors diodes and things like that.

remove the map sensor from (nearly always the plastic part) from the air intake, spray it en blow it clean with a bicycle tyre pump

place it back again.

here is a nice link for you whit a movie about cleaning the map sensor;

I'm going to guess and say have the catalytic converter checked.  If that's it...it will also be giving you poor performance and mileage.  
Also replace the exhaust sensors and check the plugs for condition and gap.  Replace the air filter and pcv valve.

If its an auto then get the trans oil level checked and while you are at it, if the oil is dark brown with a burnt smell the trans is in trouble.

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

Have 1999 astra witch shudders when driving in all geers


Could be several things
If it judders when changing gears it is probably a worn or oil contaminated clutch or a hydraulic problem, clutch activator/leaking pipe/low fluid level.
If it shudders whilst driving it is probably a worn driveshaft or hub bearing.
If it shudders whilst braking it is probably worn brake disks or a sticking brake caliper.
Have it checked out by a local garage as leaving it will only make matters worse.

Hope this helps

2007 Vauxhall astra auto still drives in park


Could be 1 of 2 problems
1. Automatic gear boxes use brake bands to slow the car down when changing down gear at reduced speed these also lock the gearbox when the selector is placed in park.
If the bands are worn then the car will creep when placed in park.
2. The selector electronics are faulty or need adjusting (this needs to be carried out by a tech machine at a garage).

Hope thais helps

04 ram 1500 2wd. trans shudder at cruising speeds under 55? Doesn't during acceleration. Change filter and fluid to no avail.


That sounds like a torque converter problem more than likely. It sounds like it's trying to lock up (supposed to do that above 60mph) at a low speed. It will feel like a harsh shift or a shudder when it's trying to engage. Just to make sure I'm correct, drive it and listen to all the gears. When at 55-60mph after it has gone into it's top gear it will normally drop about 200-300rpm when the torque converter locks up.
