yes...they do program the computers to come on or give a "service engine soon" light so that you will bring them back into the dealership....if you have access to an obd2 diag tool you can reset the codes yourself

The car will break up around 4000 rpm. This is normal for the conti and I owned 2 1998 models. If there is no laod (transmission not engaged) the rpm will break up so you dont over rev the engine. I consider myself an experts with all the work i have done on mine so relax, drink a beer and enjoy!

check the fluid level and for a clogged filter in the trans. Is it making a buzzing noise like it's sucking air?

Not a sensor or solenoid problem.

I have a 1996 ford f250. recently changed the fuel pump. it kills then its hard to start, when it does start it kills as soon as I put it into gear.

-if you believe that the pump might not work correctly. You need to check fuse pressure. If it's within its specification than there is other than the pump. It could be bad plug wire, spark plugs are too old.
bad injector.

Good luck

1993 jeep cherokee sport 4wd, when i start it the engine runs strong, i put my foot on the break and put it in a gear (this is in both 4wd and 2wd) and it still runs with my foot on the break, but as soon...

Will the car move at all. If you put it in gear and let your foot off brake , does it move untill you touch gas , or does it jam up as soon as wheels start to turn. I am suspecting problem with diff.
Doubtfull about trans filter.
