Replacing plugs


As it is an EFI computer controlled engine the tune up will start with having the fault codes read. The ECM unit keeps the engine tuned at all times so if there are any sensors that need replacing then hat is where the tune up starts . The biggest pitfall is wasting money replacing things that are perfectly ok (plugs HT leads etc). The over sites are things that drain engine power indicating poor performance but are not connected to the engine Items include dragging brake /pads, low tyre pressures, wheel alignments, carrying unnecessary loads/ weights

Shakes on take off


it could be an injector but not common, when you changed the trans fluid was it dark brown or smell burnt? there could be wear in your gearbox which would cause this, Check driveshaft universal joints for any play.

How to check trasmission fluid no dipstick just a red cap


4T40E Automatic Transaxle CAUTION
Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of the transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe. The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.
  1. The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near room temperature or at 104°F (40°C). To acquire this, left the car idle for 3-5 minutes with all of the accessories off. Fig. 5: Location of the fluid level screw and the fill/vent cap needed to check the fluid for the 4T40E automatic transaxle 87951085.gif

  2. Apply the brake, then move the gear shift selector through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range. Shift the lever into P.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a suitable drain pan under the check plug to catch any fluid that may drip out.
  5. Remove the oil check plug. The oil level should be at the bottom of the oil check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the screw hole when the screw is removed.
  6. If fluid drains through the screw hole, the transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, then fluid level is correct and the check plug may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the screw hole, the transaxle fluid may have been low. Add fluid at the vent cap location in 1 pint increments until the oil level is at the bottom of the oil check hole.
  7. Install the oil check plug/fluid level screw and tighten to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  8. Carefully lower the vehicle.

I am trying to figure out if I have a blown head gasket or if the spark plugs have went bad. I have a 97 Cadillac Catera. It seems to be misfiring or something within the engine is rubbing aginst each...


check the plugs and sounds like you could have oil saturated spark plug wires,check each cyl,to see if you have a blown head gasket you would have to do a compression check on each cyl.

LEVEL CHECK With Oil Level Gauge Fig. 1: Manual transaxle oil level check - with level gauge 84241046.gif
  1. Drive the vehicle to bring the transmission up to operating temperature.
  2. With the engine stopped, remove the oil level gauge front the side case of the transaxle.
  3. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
  4. Wipe off oil level gauge with clean cloth.
  5. Fit the oil level gauge to the transaxle side case so that the threads rest on top of the case.
  6. Remove the gauge and check oil level. The level should be between FULL and LOW level line.
  7. If the level is below LOW mark, add oil until the proper level is reached.
With Oil Level/Filler Plug
  1. Drive the vehicle to bring the transmission up to operating temperature.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the transaxle oil level/filler plug.
  4. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
  5. Transaxle oil level should be even with the bottom of the plug hole. If oil level is low, adjust oil level accordingly.
  6. Install transaxle oil level/filler plug and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  7. Lower the vehicle.

I am smelling burnt oil when i get out of my car and something is driping in my drive way but when i continually check the oil it is never low where could this be coming from?


You could be looking at brake fluid,power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, anti-freeze, hypoid gear oil (stick shift), or even engine oil (a little oil goes a long way). Burnt oil says valve cover gasket dripping on the manifold. valve cover gaskets are for the most part easy to get to and fairly easy to change. If the outside is leaking some times the inside is leaking into the spark plug holes. Degrease the engine and if it is easy do it yourself.

98 lincoln navigator loud noise, shaking, high rpm at idle, drive


I don't know how much oil you had to put in but it sounds like you have maybe more than opne issue and both sound major. One is engine reving and speed not picking up sounds like trans problem. Two the engine shaking and making noise and being run low on oil leans toward possible engine damage. If your mechanicly inclined check all fluids and when checking trans fluid smell it. If it smells burnt the trans has been damaged. Check oil pressure and make sure coolant is full.You may have to take it into the shop.

Honda accord lx 1996 6 transmission dipstick


For the V-6 model, the dipstick is located down low on the transaxle, on the drivers side of the car, if it is low, usually 1 pint of of fluid is needed to raise from low notch to high notch. also if it appears to be dark or burnt, smells burnt, you should replace the tranaxle fluid. Good Luck!
