Is it right put ur car on neutral while u driving down the hill when u driving with 100 per hour?

Hi Anonymous:
From a safety point of view, I would NOT recommend it. Even though you may save a bit of fuel, the vehicle has a lot of power accessories that would leave you with dangerous problems if the engine were to decide to stop. Things like power steering and power brakes become almost impossible to work effectively.

Transfer case stuck in neutral

something you may want to try to get transfer case into hi gear
.while driving forward, coast at appx 10 mph and place your transmission in neutral while still coasting at 10 mph then try shifting your transfer case to hi .this is a technique used on a lot of different vehicles to get the transfer case to shift. If it shifts into hi range then place your transmission into drive while coasting and should then be where you technique also works to place vehicle into low from hi on a lot of vehicles.hope this helps solve your problem. chris

Car won't pull back speed when foot off accelerator

Very possibly a vacuum issue. Maybe a line that needs vacuum for the trans is on an inlet that effects the throttle. Not sure how old your vehicle is.

After running for about 10 minutes the car stops and turns off. turns back on but when you put it on drive it turns off again after about 10 minutes it runs again.

This problem can cause by combine of few parts.
Loose linkage and / or bad / failing neutral safety switch.
Check for free play on shift and linkage to the transmission. Check for worn / loose mounting bolts around the neutral safety switch.
A weak fuel pump can also cause stalling.
Fill the tank above 3/4 tank and see does it problem still occur.
A weak fuel pump will not effectively delivery fuel when the fuel level is below 1/3 tank.

Car feels like it wants to cut off at idle

May I suggest to use a OBD2 scanner and see if it could be a setting in the ECU (computer) that could be out... or engine part malfunction... it will scan for any errors... sounds like it could be the airflow sensor perhaps??
