Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I was driving ny twins truck 04 ford explorer and I was waiting for her at a friends so it was idle for a few minutes then as we were leaving before she got in I could hear the truck struggling to stay on like it wa gonna give out a minute later it didn't wanna accelerate so I stop put it into park and start it again then it drove normally. So ewe go to walmart and on the way home we go up a hill and the truck starts shaking and doesn't wanna accelerate again the steering gets really stiff as well and so I pull over to the side (struggling with the wheel and it didn't wanna move foward) and put the car into park. Turn it off and on again then it drives normally. Recently my bf changed the oil and spark plugs he said something was gapped at 70 & is supposed to be 55. & something about two wirings need to be replaced in it. idk plz help.

It sounds like you need to replace your spark plug wires.

SOURCE: 1997 Bonneville lost power going up a long hill

The only thing that comes to mind is the catalytic convertor in the exhaust system.It can become restricted,reducing flow in the exhaust system,which also reduces engine power.These convertors run at fairly hot temperatures,and the extreme heat and conditions aggravated,or overloaded it.It's not very expensive to have it checked at a reputable muffler shop.I have seen extreme instances where this caused parts of the exhaust system to turn red,glowing hot.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge grand caravan stalls

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?

SOURCE: Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.

1.You could be right, check the flexdisk and the wheelhub, since you have already check wheel balance,
wheel alignment, and the steering wheel.
2. Have the following check as well;
a) steering linkage assembly for worn out joint parts.
b) propeller shaft (cross bearing, center bearing)
c) engine mount for defects.

Location neutral safety switch 2010 town and country touring 4.0

Turn key to start and all lights go on and all I hear is one chug. Turn key off wait 1+ minute and try again with 80% success and sometimes have to try more but still wait quite a while before trying will get 0 success. I did read somewhere to pump the gas a few times after failed start with key off and try again and I have done that 2 times now with 100% success on the restart. I don't have $1000 to replace the TIPM that others talk about so I guess I will keep doing this for as long as I can. It's been happening for over 1 year now and it's random as far as frequency. Sometimes a few times a month other times half a dozen or more times a month. Never not been able to get it to start but my heart always skips a beat and stomach drops especially when I have my twin toddlers with me alone. Never had to have it jumped either.
