    Can you clarify this a bit? Does it turn kind of jerky or just drags and turns slowly? Does it make a lot of noise when trying to start?

I suggest that you check the teeth on the flywheel and the starter bendix (drive clutch with gear on it to turn the flywheel). It is difficult to diagnose this without actually seeing the vehicle. It could be that you could get by with changing the starter. Another thing to look at is the flywheel and bolts. It is possible that it is cracked. If that be the case, either the transmission will have to be pulled or the engine.
Hopefully it won't come to that. The longer you try to use it laike that, the worse and more expensive it is going to be to repair it.
Good Luck with it.

1990 Mazda 626 Car starts, idles and runs very well when cold however whwn its hot the car is hard to start and stalls. So far the idlde air cotrol valve and mass air sensor have been replaced . Each...


Honestly sounds like the throttle position sensor, if the car is cold it will be choked and thus the throttle body flap almost closed easy to crank, more fuel less air.... when the air warms it moves the throttles actual flap opening wider, thus more air less fuel and harder starting, not as much fuel to combust and if the computer cannot sense the correct position, it will cause acceleration hesitating, poor idle, and what is called stumbling, where you press the gas and it kind of sounds like the motor sputters for a second and then goes or the occasional surging if at highway speed of say 60 mph and you feel the car kinda speed up mile or 2 and then back to the original speed.

My 93 nissan p/u had that issue, but the tps was replaced and it takes 2-3 revolutions on the motor and it's running smooth, hot or cold.

Hope this helps.

Rpm NOT REGISTERING ON DASHBOARD GUAGE


The "motor" soldered on the circuit board is shot, replace it, It is white with 5 pins on. Before they go totally they make sort of a low grinding noise and if you move the dial with your finger you can feel it seems like a rough bearing. It is typical for them to go, I would check other motors on cluster at the same time, if they are smooth they are good, if they feel like a rough bearing I would replace them as well. There are businesses that repair clusters that can do it or you can get damaged clusters from auto wreckers and do it yourself.

Nissan largo 1994 AUTO ...when selecting a gear with lever it shift into it smoothly all 3 foward gears work fine you can hear and feel transmission doing it job , but when selecting reverse it goes into...


Before starting with the hard ones, start with the usual culprit like fluid levels and the condition if it needs repairing. If there are debris in the system it could clog the valves for the reverse gear which makes it difficult or impossible to engage. This unfortunately would need inspection of the transmission from the outside. Check the linkages and the lines and look for leaks to inspecting the internal parts especially the gears.

My 2003 dodge caravan turns on but it doesn't go. To move just a little bit I have to push gas pedal very hard.


make sure the emergency brake is completely releasing , is the motor lugging or working really hard to make it move? does it feel like the brake is on, or that the motor just won't get up to speed to make it move smoothly

Drivers side wiper blade does not move. it has the cips no bolts. 91 chevy pick up. but you can feel the motor bumbing it if you try to move it with your hand


Pull the blade off the wiper linkage and check the hole. they get worn out.(smooth). Also check the linkage. Most likely its the blade. you can get one at the salvage yard or buy one new at the dealer.

the left. when you turn left it pushes pressure on the bearing quieting it down turn right and it pulls the bearing you can verify this by jacking up the vehicle and tilting the wheel top to bottom you should be able to feel the play in the bearing if its making noise

Transmission moves when I step on the gas hard. It's like the lines are clogged.


The transmission moves? In what way? If under hard acceleration your motor mounts could need looking at. Put vehcle in gear parking brake on foot on brake pedal and give it some gas then sudenly let up on gas. If you feel a thud, the tigh motor mount is probably your culprit. You can test the left mount same way but be extra carefull, your psrking brake won't hold as well so use the foot brake when accelerating . Acceleration need not be alot, just enough to make it do what you feel or hear. Motor mounts are not a major problem. good luck

2003 Mercury Sable - transmission jerking


This is a front wheel drive vehicle and has no power-train components in the rear of the car. The noise coming from the back is not related to your transmission. I would highly reccommend going to a ford dealership as these are typically trust-worthy and always use OEM parts. I also have an 03 sable with 101k miles it has always been reliable and has original transmission. It is possible something else is hard ****.
