Try putting in some fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank.

    is this vehicle a ford. Have you recently had a key made that wasnt FACTORY? The key may be only a valet key without a chip in it. The car will start but not stay running .

I have transmission flud leaking out of top of transmission on my ford tarus what would cause this to start suddenly I havent added any fluid


First off, be very careful here - Transmission fluid is flammable and will start a fire if leaking on exhaust manifold. this can happen if the tranny is running too hot and it's basically boiling over - or if passageways get blocked and the pressure pushes it out. I would start with a fluid/filter change. or you can have it flushed (best if shop does this).. FYI: they will need to change fluid after the flush so you might want to just bring it in to a shop and have them do flush and change fluid/filter all at once..

Transmission slips out and when you stop and start it will only go about 15 mph if you shut it of wait a few minutes then start it transmission goes till gets hot again


The transmission probably needs a fluid and filter change. Do not use the quick lube places to flush the transmission as they do not change the filter.

My 2004 deville shifts a little rough at different speeds.It seems to do it when the car is warm to hot.It does not leak.Would a transmission flush help the problem?It has 76000 miles.we bought it with...


You Change Trans & Power Steering Fluids every
30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

I don't suggest flushing,some people do

If you want to chance having problems get
it flushed

You remove all the fluid it may just start to slip

You have to understand that fluid changes DO NOT FIX
A THING

The fluid removes heat & breaks down
That is why it is changed

I would assume you don't flush brake fluid every 2 years
Trans & Steering every 3 years,not over 30,000 miles
Spark Plugs at 60,000 miles

When you buy a used vehicle you lay it up for two weeks
& work on it,never drive it
All Preventative maintenance gets done,regardless
of what you were told about the vehicle

Car shuts off when it gets hot


your ignition coil are going bad, they need to be replaced. once the car gets hot the circuit shut down the car when hot. once they cool your riding again until they get hot. thats your problem. Good Luck

Fan blower stays on after i shut car off i unplug the wire for it so it does shut off and when i need air i plug it back it and my radio stays on after i shut car off and take key out...my radio is...


Some cars are designed to have the fan run for a few minutes after you turn the car off. But if doesn't stop until the battery drains, then it might be a faulty switch or temperature sensor.

Or, if the fan stays running when the engine and radiator are cool you have a very cheap problem: The fan thermostat is stuck closed. A new thermostat will fix the problem--the hardest part of replacing it is finding it. Follow the wires from the fan to the switch--it is usually on the bottom tank of the radiator. Drain the radiator first and save the coolant to put back in after you replace the thermostat. NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR.

If that wasn't it then check the following:
  • Check to see that your coolant level is correct. Top up as necessary.
  • Lay your hand on the radiator (with the engine off) and feel if it is as hot at the top as it is at the bottom. If not, your radiator may be clogged and need flushed or replaced. (Flushing is cheap. Replacing the radiator isn't)
  • Do you get heat from the heater? Leave it turned on high and see if your fan stays running the next time. If it takes care of the problem that could mean you have a kinked radiator hose.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

2001 Audi S4 Heater doesn't work


Thermostat has failed (stuck open) and needs replacement. It's a big job (5-6 hours charged labor for a shop), and requires the front of the car to be removed. Here's a pic of my car (B5 A4) a few weeks ago when I changed mine:

There's no way around it either - removing the front of the car is the only way to access it.

Car keeps shutting off


After extensive research I have found that in 10 out of ten cases it was the E.C.M or in other words the computer for the vehicle is faulty. You can thank dodge for this problem. What happens is they put a Temperature sensitive device in an area that gets unbelievably hot. Then the Computer overheats and shuts down. In most cases the control panel in the vehicle where the odometer is says "No Bus"
The only way to fix this problem is to put a new computer in. DO NOT buy one from the dealership they are too pricey. Get on off of Ebay. For the extremely mechanical Savy you can do what I did in my durango. I carefully cut the tape away from the main harness then marked everything and cut the harness drilled a hole through my firewall (Just be careful where you drill) fed the harness through and reconnected my computer and mounted it under the dash so when it is extremely hot here in arizona the A/C Keeps the computer cool. With this method I have NEVER had this problem happen to me.
Just don't do this if vehicle is under warranty it will violate the ciditions of the warranty. Hope this helps. I have seen this problem posted to other sites and am just trying to let everyone know what it is and How to fix it.
