Hate to say it but it sounds like your looking at a new or rebuilt transmission. Get a diagnosis anyway, just to be sure I'm not jumping the gun.

    Unless you have a broken rotor & or seized caliper. have you been experiencing any problems with brakes, or has it been a long time since they've been looked at?

KEY WON'T TURN ON THE IGNITION


Hi Aldene, Your vehicle seems too young to have a problem with a worn key so I suggest that the problem was related to the position of the steering wheel and the tongue of the locking mechanism. Sometimes when the lock engages it is under the load of the weight of the front wheels, if they are not in the straight ahead position. A small movement of the steering wheel is usually enough to release the steering lock. Regards John

2000 intrigue, seems like right front wheel jerks, 3.5, 153k mi


The "jerking" can be normal because that is the wheel that the power is going to..
If the jerking is "too much" it could be out of allingment or could be a warn out bushing or a bad ball joint in the front end.. Jack up the front of the car (be safe) leaving the front wheel hanging free.. **** the wheel left to right.. You should be able to see if anything is loose or not moving properly..

1994 Buck P/Ave Runs in reverse Not drive


If it was a modulator it would go into low but it would be screaming when it shifted into second and third. The modulator lets the trans shift without head jerking shifts and when unhooked the shift point is way up in the rpms before it shifts.Buicks are hard to beat when it comes to lasting. I do believe in my opinion i would replace the trans. Hope i helped a little God Bless you Greg

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive


As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
