I have a 2014 CTS. When traveling downhill with cruise control engaged, the car will downshift 2 or 3 gears causing the rpm to run up over 4000. Is this normal operation for these cars?


This is normal if you are going up hill but if you go down hill there should be very little work for the engine and transmission to do.
Going up hill as the engine starts to pull it is normal to kick into a lower gear to give the car more pulling power. If it does it in the down hill mode you should get it checked like low fluid or something.

Engine starting to run hotter


Either the thermostat or perhaps electric fan are my first thoughts. I assume there's no signs of distress from the water pump, but if no leaks or noises then that's prob ok

Clacking noise when going up steep hills


What you may be hearing is called "octane ping". It occurs when the engine is under heavy load and the fuel does not have enough octane to efficiently run the engine. Older engines like yours were often run on premium gasoline to avoid this. However, if you do not have the clacking when accelerating on level ground and only have it on the steeper hills, it is not necessary to spend more money for mid-grade of premium fuel. Only if the engine makes the noise under normal operation is this advised. A little octane ping in those situations will not hurt the engine. But, if you need the peace of mind, and to ensure that the clacking IS octane related, I would try one tank of premium and retest the engine of a hill you know causes the problem to see if it goes away.

When I accelerate up a hill there is a noise that sounds like it might be fuel injectors, its a 'ticking' type noise, you only hear it when accelerating up a hill.


This noise is called pinging (preignition) this can be cause by carbon build up on pistons and valves or EGR SYSTEM NOT OPERATING CORRECTLY . and last low octane gas or engine running hotter than normal,

It sounds like it does this while under a load, like going uphills, i would have the egr system checked, being a 2000 escort i would think the computer would pickup on the egr system not working and turn engine light on. This could also be caused by bad o2 sensors setting fuel mixture at a lean condition. good day

Truck runs normal temperature while engine is running but when i shut engin off it gets red hot


it is quiet normal that the engine will get a little hotter after you switch it off as there is no water circulating, but it should start to cool down after a short period because there is nothing to make it get any hotter if it is not running......hope this helps......cheers.

95 wrangler yj. has no power at high speeds


Have you had fuel pressure tested, and/or filter changed. Have you checked for plugged exhaust, such as catalytic converter? Quite often engine will also run a little hotter than normal when exhaust is plugged.
