Check cap, rotor and wires. Also possible is a cracked distributor housing.

2005 Chevy trailblazer ext problems 1. Cruise will not set.worked last on 4/12/15 2. While checking fuses for CC problemdome lights stopped working, but worked fine before checking fuses. PLEASE HELP!


Bummer deal! This may be a way to tell you some tail lights are burnt out. Some cruise controls have a fuse in a second location.
The fuse is not in right or is blown. Check with a new fuse. Hope this helps. ...gc http://www.auto-tune-up-and-repair-options.com/

Transmission surge at cruise


check the rpm and road speed when this happens . The cruise control will increase to keep RPM constant but as the road speed drops the auto may be shifting down and as the rpm increase it shifts back before the rpm adjusts. You can override a cruise control in this situation by simply pressing down on the accelerator to maintain the power setting and road speed and when the situation is passed and you take your foot of the accelerator the cruise control will return the system to the set position without you needing to do anything

1998 Ford Explorer with Auto 4WD wants to shift into 4WD while accelerating on dry pavement, but then shifts back to 2WD when up to cruising speed. Tires are not breaking loose or slipping. Also what...


you are right, there is no option to only run an actual 2 wd, and yes it will engage into 4 wheel under a acceleration, but it shoulnt engage under a normal take off but if you step on it it will engage. I"m getting to the point of selling this truck for this reason among many others, my 2003 yukon xl 4x4 doesn't have half the garbage and engineering idiocy this truck has. And listening and reading all these troubles i can't take it anymore. I also have some issues with mine but i'm not gonna put anymore time and money into this.

sounds like you are suffering from low fuel pressure, with a proper gauge you can check to be certian that you have addaquit pressure. at idle you should have 14-18 psi.

2001 Dodge Dakota 4WD Quad Cab: engine RPM's too high/jumpy


could be a lot of things. I personally would start with your vacuum lines... check for a leak somewhere. You can do that by spraying carb cleaner (if motor tries to die, you found your leak), or it could be a sensor, likely idle air control, mas air, etc.)

With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.

This could be a kick-down servo adjustment.

Loosing power at cruising speed


have you had the transmission flushed? it seems to be caught in a limbo. where the calibration of the speedo and the transmission are not compatable. Now as wierd as that seems it happens usally like when going up a hill if you have a manual trans. and cruise locked in. it cant hold that speed and moves to a different speed if you dont down shift. Or perhaps your cruise control cable is slipping. is it vacume over mechanical? pop the hood and make sure all your hoses to cruise control are tight and no leaks.
