Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2006 Chevy Equinox transmission went out while driving down the road. Three days later it drives up onto the trailer to haul it home from 400 miles away and then backs off the trailer like nothing happened. When the transmission went out it sounded like coins in a blender. I also didn't have park. Had to e brake it to keep it from rolling. Replace transmission or what?! I owe $4800 on this thing and have had nothing but problems.

Getting into a transmission repair is going to be rather costly what I tend to look at is the value of the vehicle. If the repair is 50% of the value I don't do that repair.

SOURCE: 1993 Chevy lunimina Broke down

I don't want to seem like a smart ****, but the blown fuses were telling you that something with the component that it was protecting is going bad. So changing the fuse the first time was a go idea, the second time was not. It told you, that something was failing and you refused to pay attention.

But at least you know which fuse blew, so now all you have to do is find out what it was protecting and replace it or what feeds it.

Cheapest scenario is to change the transmission filter. That is if it is an automatic. When you do this, most transmissions have a magnet in the transmission pan. If yours has one I would check it for excessive metal shavings or worse metal chunks.

When do you service the transmission on a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 4.8 v8


Most newer transmissions recommend checking the fluid at every oil change. With heavy driving (towing, hauling, mountains, etc.) it should be serviced at 60,000 miles. Regular driving with little towing and hauling, it can easily go 100,000 miles. You can also check the wear by looking at your transmission fluid. If it is very dark and smells "burnt" you should have it serviced and have a tech check for unusual wear and damage.

Fuel guage moving all over 2006 chevy trailblazer


I had this problem as well. Took it to the garage and it was a $700 bill the part alone was $440 they had to drop the gas tank - and since then it's not been working right. The fan clutch went a week later another $700 bill. Picked it up and it was still making the same sound - garage replaced another sensor without charging me--picked it up and three days later the service engine light came on. Back to garage and another $80 part was needed under the hood. All this with just 52,500 miles and I keep it well maintained. Not a happy camper at all! Holding my breath but it's been only two days so far so good.

2006 Honda CRV Passenger both Low & High beams out (bulbs good)


Well I suspect that you may have developed a problem in what's called the Multiplex unit. It's an integral part of the fuse box in Honda CR-V's. It's possible that the cargo trailer caused the problem by causing too much current to be drawn thru the system, I have a similar problem with my 2002 Honda CR-V and have been told I need to replace the multiplex unit and they are quite expensive. You may have to bite the bullet and have it checked by your nearest Honda Dealer.

My truck loses power


In most cases it is the fuel filter. I don't know when it was changed before, but it should be changed at least every 8-10 k miles. Make sure you change the air filter too.

Electrical problems


Sound like the car is not recharging the battery as you drive. Take it to a different shop and ask them to test the alternator and entire charging system as well as the battery.
