How I fix abattery drain?

You should first disconnect the battery overnight to see if it stays charged. If not, it could be an internal short in the battery. If ok, then look for the drain. WIth engine running at 1500-2000 rpms, the voltage at the battery should read 14 volts if the chargning system is working.

Whats the problem when the rpms go up when you put a 2004 dodge durango in reverse and the transmission is not sliping

Sounds like a faulty fuel injector. RPMS don't have anything to do with transmission. They have to do with the revolutions per minute of the engine which is controled by the 4 forces of combustion, Spray, Flash, Bang, Blow. Spray is the fuel going into the engine (injector), flash is the spark (spark plugs), bang is fuel lighting to make the "explosion", and blow is the force of the explosion against the piston turning the crank shaft in the engine, there by causing a revolution. The forces that control this process are fuel, oxygen, and flame. Because it's reving too high, you know it's not a spark plug problem. Check your fuel injectors and your air intake to the engine. Hope it helps!

go to villager quest yahoo group for expert help. Sounds like a dirty MAF sensor. Clean heated wires with carb cleaner.

TPS readngs are good.

fuel pressure should be 43 engine off, and 34 engine running.

try disconnecting front oxygen sensor for a day & see if better.

Shifts hard jerking and high rpms changing from second to third

Thanks for choosing Fixya. Is it just high rpms in second and third or has it did this at different speeds? Is this an automatic or standard?

Carb popping at high accelaration

hi this could be a timing fault, it sounds like the valves are opening at the wrong time, making the fuel build up in the pots and of course when it does spark that's when you get the big bang, the built up fuel burning , try checking your timing as you actually might be 180dgs out on the distributor not the engine....hope that helps

I have a 2001 mercury villager that overheats. I replaced the fan assembly and the thermostat. The radiator is fine. What else could be causing the van to overheat?

You have air trapped in the system. If you have cold air, warm air, cold air from your heater, then it's air entrapment. Very common these days. Go to a shop that uses vacuum method to refill cooling system & that will purge air.
Otherwise, you can try. Park uphill. cold engine - fill radiator to top with 50/50 mix of antifreeze. leave cap on but loose. fill reservior to 3/4 full. Turn heater to hot to allow coolant to flow through heater core. start engine, run at 1500 rpms until thermostat opens and upper hose is hot. tighten cap and let it cool down. after cool check level of reservoir. fill to top line on reservoir. it should **** coolant back into radiator as it cools down.
repeat if still an issue.
