This problem sounds more like your serpentine belt is loose or has become glazed. When you accelerate, the belt can't keep up with the torque of the flywheel pulley due to the drag of the accessories, resulting in a squealing and/or chirping of the belt as it slips on the pulley. This is amplified during turns due to the extra drag of a laboring power steering pump. Try going to your auto-parts store and picking up a bottle of belt dressing, about a buck a bottle. Apply this to your belt according to the instructions on the bottle. This should help your belt regain its "stickiness" if it is indeed glazed. If this doesn't solve your problem, a new belt may be in order. Hope this helps out. If the problem persists after a new belt, reply to this answer and we can dig a little deeper. Have a great day!

It is possible that the Transmission control module (TCM) has detected a problem with either the actual electronics in the ******, or that the TCM itself is bad. You should have the OBDll on the truck scanned and you'll know much more about what happened.

How do i set the cruise control on my 1994 mercedes c220 elegance automatic


Cruise Control
Any given speed above approximately 22 mph (35 km/h) can be maintained with the cruise control by operating the lever.
-see photo

  1. Accelerate and set: Lift lever briefly to set speed. Hold lever up to accelerate.
  2. Decelerate and set:
    Depress lever briefly to set speed. Hold lever down to decelerate.
    Normally the vehicle is accelerated to the desired speed with the accelerator. Speed is set by briefly pushing
    the lever to position 1 or 2. The accelerator can be released. The speed can be increased (e.g. for passing)
    by using the accelerator. As soon as the accelerator is released, the previously set speed will be resumed automatically. If a set speed is to be increased or decreased slightly, e.g. to adapt to the traffic flow, hold lever in position 1 or 2 until the desired speed is reached, or briefly tip the control lever in the appropriate direction for increases or decreases in 0.6 mph (1 km/h) increments. When the lever is released, the newly set speed remains.
  3. Canceling
To cancel the cruise control, briefly push lever to position 3.
When you step on the brake or the vehicle speed drops below approx. 22 rnph (35 km/h), for example when driving upgrade, the cruise control will be canceled.
4. Resume
If the lever is briefly pushed to position 4 when driving at a speed exceeding approx. 22 mph (35 km/h), the vehicle resumes the speed which was set prior to the cancellation of the cruise control. The last memorized speed is canceled when the key in the steering lock is turned to position 1 or 0.
Note:
If the engine does not brake the vehicle sufficiently while driving on a downgrade, the speed you set on the cruise control may be exceeded and you may have to step on the brake pedal to slow down.
As soon as the grade eases, the cruise controlled speed will again be maintained as long as the brakes were not previously applied, or the lever may be used to resume the previously set speed if the brakes were applied.

My 1997 Jimmy runs fine in idle when I take off the vechile is fine until it reaches 20 mph it won't accelerate and the rpms increase up to 3000 but no speed. What's wrong it's a 4 wheel d


Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.
