The flashing check engine light means there is a serious problem with the performance of the engine. You need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes next.

SOURCE: Check engine light on,engine surges while stopped at light

could be a vacuum leak. When rpms are up, it has enough vac to operate properly. Check all vacuum hoses and make sure they are all on, and look for splits or cracks in the hoses

SOURCE: Engine light on/off rough acceleration

I would have the coil tested again. May have a bad ground. Also check all major grounds, body and motor.

SOURCE: audio system on 2007 Rav 4

if it doesn't have an aux jack, you will have to get an adapter that plugs into your cigarette lighter/ power source plug. then you can tune to 88.7fm(unless a different channel is specified)

SOURCE: replace rear wiper 2007 RAV-4?????

Slide a small screwdriver under the tab in the middle of the blade and the arm, while pressing the tab in, pull blade away from the arm, this may need some extra wiggle. Remember you dont want it to fall off when driving..

On my 2007 sky when i come to a stop it feels like the trans bangs in low gear? I have automatic.


Check for broken motor mount, trans linkage is mounted at some point to the engine and/or trans. When engine moves your linkage adjustment will change.

Not shifting


Any transmission trouble code will put the trans in second gear
and it won\'t shift.
Key on-off-on-off-on without starting the engine will illuminate
the check engine light .It will flash out the codes.Should see a 55
code ,5 flashes,a pause then 5 more. Any codes other than 12 and
55 need recorded for further diagnnosis.
I was thinking that turning the key on and opening the throttle wide
open 4 times within 5 seconds (engine off)clears tranny codes,not sure about that tho. You might try it then drive it and see if it shifts,although
as soon as the malfunction happens again it will go back into limp mode.
Tranny slipping or a slow shift or converter lock up malfunction along
with many other things will trigger this.

My 1999 Silverado 5.3L automatic won't shift from 2nd to 3rd until 2500 rpm when it's cold. When warm works fine but 1st to 2nd shift won't happen until 2500 rpm, speratically. Transmissio


I had a friend that had this problem.I work at a G.M.dealership and I ask a friend that does trans work there.He said this is normal in cold weather.This is done in order for the trans to reach operating temperature sooner.This could be why you are unable to fix this problem because it is normal.I looked in service info to see if I could find a bulletin or something to back this up but I did not find anything.I know this guy very well and I know he knows his work and is good at it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

1999 chevy cavalier transmission won't shift into


1999 cavelier manual trans: My son was shifting his manual trans really rough (ramming through the gears to try to beat someone out at a light) and ended up not being able to put it into anything but 3 and 4 (straight up and down). We noticed that the shifter cable, that actuates the position of the arm on the transmission, had pulled away from a "c" clip and was not held into place about 8-10 inches down the cable away from the trans. The cable needs to be secured into that clip in order to let the wire inside move the trans. lever to shift. Otherwise you will be stuck on what ever "rail" your trans is on at the time of disconnection. It would be the first thing that I would check.

If it is always shifting firm, I would suspect it is in the control. Perhaps the computer needs to be flashed at the dealer. A line pressure reading should be done to verify the pressures are correct.
