SOURCE: ive replaced clutch and gear

1. replace your gear oil.
2. is this an automatic or manual transmission engine? if manual, adjust your clutch release a little higher than usual to let your clutch engange earlier.

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

Engine stops while trying to park, car jolts when going 35+ mph.

Try replacing the sparkplug wires. These are all common symptoms of bad sparkplug wire on a DIS ignition system. I would also suggest changing the fuel filter. I tell all my coustomers to replace their fuel filter at every 3'rd oil change i.e. 80 to 90K. hope this helps:)

Hey, I drive a 04 Infiniti G35 coupe, when I first bought it off a private seller I realized that whenever I did a auto-car wash the passenger floorboard would fill with water. It seems to be coming...

Gday mate,geoff here, seems a smple problem of a blocked drain in the plenum chamber, simplified, it's the chamber under the windscreen wipers where the wiper motor is, most probably black plastic, in there will be full of leaves & whatnot, clear these out and use your garden hose to clear the little drain in there and presto, the chamber is currently full and leaking in through the vent on that side, hope this helps, geoff.

When you shift into gear from park, our Jeep jerks a bit. We have it up for sale and potential buyers are afraid its the transmission that is going. Is that always the case, is there something we can...

its only the transmision taking up the slack of the fluid drive.a tip is to allways have your foot hard on the brake when changing into gear(safety factor) now if it were a limo, that would not be right......

Will not shift into 3rd until 55mph its an automatic what is possible cause?

Check your auto transmission levels. Slow, often jerky, gear shifting is often accompanied by a bit of a jolt when putting it into drive from park or neutral. When fluids are low the torque converter impeller has to work harder to get pressure up and therefore it is slower at shifting to the next gear . Low transmission fluids also lead to poor fuel consumption.
