When is the last time the fuel filter was changed?, it should be changed every 30,000 miles.

My 2004 chevy classic cuts out sometimes while driving down the highway, does not do this when I press on the gas, also idles rough especially while in drive


If your car has over 100K on it, you will need to go and have it tuned up and the throttle body cleaned and spark plugs changed, my 2004 acted like this and I did the tune-up and it solved my problem.

I have a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee, I have 1st gear manually from a complete stop,same with 2nd. But when I put it in drive, the engine revs at 3500 rpm, but I only travel 5-7 mph. Tcm trouble code p0700...


sounds like low transmission fluid, a dirty filter or both, to check the fluid level, open the hood leave the engine running put the transmission in neutral with the parking break on then pull out the dip-stick labled trans, wipe it off with a rag plug it back in then pull it our and look at the level. To see if there is a dirty filter look at the fluid if it is darkbrown or black and it smells burnt then you need to get your transmission flushed and the filter changed.

1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette. At times it seems


a bad tps sensor will cause: transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, surge while cruising down highway. to check, remove connector from tps, use a ohms meter and probe center and any one of the other connectors,move throttle slow. if it jumps or does not stay steady while moving throttle, its bad. if the needle on ohms meter moves good then the tps is ok. move throttle plate slowly.

2004 mazda 3 transmission problem


Check transmission fluid. If that is full, try changing the fuel filter. It could be starving for gas, and trying to shift but can't. It could also be the speed sensor, or shift solenoid.
