Check to make sure that you somehow did not disconnect or move any linkage that goes from the carburetor (or injection air inlet if you have f/i) to the transmission. on many vehicles this linkage controls internal trans pressure and can influence shift points and application harshness. Your post indicates that you were sleeping when you changed the filter...Don't work on cars unless you are awake!!!
PS: If you have f/i, you would have to be underneath the car...did you somehow cut a wire or catch trans linkage when lifting it?

2005 Hyundai Tucson jerking in park and when coming to a stop light. Jeep runs rough and sometimes shuts off when making hard left or right turns. Could smell exhaust gas.


you have clogged fuel injectors, take it to a dealership only! they are the only place that has the proper set up to clean them. My 89 Mustang GT had the exact same problem and ford service center cleaned them for $80 and it was 100% better never had another problem, sold the car at 276K miles and it still ran perfect with no drips or leaks, the tranny finally went out. Never use those cleaners sold at stores they do more harm than good! they will void your warranty also.

Sounds like you have either an igniton switch problem or your alternator is bad. Take it to the nearest auto part store and they will check your alternator and codes for free. Good luck.

Seems as if the cable is sticking causing the transmition not to shift until high rpm


What model Jeep? This is normally caused by the filter not flowing fluid correctly. A fluid and FILTER change will solve the problem 99% of the time. Do not do the "Trans Flush" at the quick lube. They do not change the filter.

My grang cherokee2002 us spec, while driving trnz changes fine but when cick down or full excelrate and RPM reaches 4.5 or 5 engine is loosing power and getting noisy and RPM not going more, while gear on...


You are hitting the rev limiter top range, which cuts off your ignition.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and the problem drives me crazy, but it is the way the car is designed- as soon as you hit the rev limit, it shuts down ignition and your jeep will "buck" - a real pain when you are trying to accelerate into traffic!

You have the 4.0L straight six engine, yes?

If so, please take my advice and learn to live with the minor annoyance of the rev limiter- that engine is IMHO the best Chrysler ever made (nearly "bulletproof"!) and it was so reliable you cannot even get it in a jeep now! For decades, that engine was used in welders, tractors, generators...and yes, jeeps... and it is a favorite among mechanics for its durability!

Im driving my 1986 jeep cherokee with the v6 2.8 liter manual transmission. i just replaced the hose going from the intake to the air filter on the right side and the fuel filter. to try and solve my power...


could be the fuel pump pressure output in the line. or a bad fuel pressure regulator. i once, years ago had a similar problem. so i went and bought a electric fuel pump and mounted it to fender under hood, hooked up the fuel hoses then drove home. but i do not know if this will work on todays vehicles. a dealer or auto parts store will tell if it will. good-luck !!!

High RPM between shifts or at idle after driving/ warm engine


Clean the choke and linkage around the air cleaner again.

You are on the right track.

I will give ALL the intake manifold bolts a 1/6 turn....just to rule out leaky intake manifold gasket.

Check for loose or leaky vacuum hose.

Since you truck is 1987. I will replace all small vacuum hoses.

Change one at at time.

====
Change the fuel filter
====
Test fuel pressure
====
Check the ohm specification on the coil.
====
If the wires are over 3 years old then replace it
Check and clean contacts
====
Make sure the wires are not cross.
====

Do a good carb. cleaning and use Chevron gas for one tank full. Do some high RPM highway ran and see does it improve.

Fuel ECU fuse keeps blowing (30 amp)


Your fuel pump is internally binding and causing the fuse to blow. Change the pump (and filter while you're back there.)

89 Accord LXI Idle problems


It's fuel infected and it has a vacuum leak, most likely a PCV valve that is stuck open, I've seen a few now. Replace the PCV valve 1st, if that doesn't fix it, start looking for a hose that has come off.
