SOURCE: engine

Dear FixYa Team,
I have the injectors clean up and replace fuel filter, but still it did not work. I think it's the intake valve is sticky, when I remove the injectors there were carbon inside the intake. Whenever I pump the accelerator intake start to back fire, after a few pump on it, engine gets better until it warm up then I can run the car with out that problem. Is it neccesary to correct this problem? If not it cost me a lot of money. Anyway thanks for the the suggestion, my car runs better than before. Limyukok

SOURCE: loss of power

I have the same problem on a s320 cdi, gearbox goes into limp mode and wont rev above or kickdown, at the 1st chance i get to stop i put into park or neutral gear turn off the engine and re-start and then everthing is fine, I read that if you put a new battery on it may solve the problem, it's something to do with the voltage dropping below 10.4 volts. Then it sends a message to e.c.u. that puts your gearbox into limp mode. Hope this will work for you. MERKY

Hello John. Most likely your hand brake cable is corroded. When you released the handbrake, due to the corroded cable it did not completely release the actual brake mechanism. The long term fix is to replace that brake cable. Joe

What is the best diff ratio for a auto gxl with a 5 litre v8 commodore motor


diff ratio is not the problem but a properly tuned engine is
run the fault codes and find out why the v8 is lacking power
a ratio of 3.6 is optimum for power and economy but for power at lower road speed 4.5 ratio would be best

are you shifting into a lower gear when starting to go up the hill you should use the transmission when doing this no matter how steep the hill is because this will stop the overload on the transmission , maybe time for tune up ,? , do u also have a towing switch in you vechil I do not know what u are towing with , no listed in your question

I have two differant heater lines that is broke I don't know where they go.would this cause it to lack power and speed when it climbs hills?


Unlikely as the heater hoses just supply water to the heater core and return to the engine . You can blank of the heater hoses and there should be not alteration to performance. Lacking power is a separate problem that you get an answer for if you run the fault codes .

Tow haul mode has no change on transmission operation. Truck barely moves a 6000lb trailer when starting off on a hill. 3/4 ton with a 6.0 and 3.73 rear end.


tow mode gives ur transmission a longer shift point to relive strain on engine while driving -it doesnt give it more horse power to start off a hill

Power


How long have you had the F-150? Has it always seemed to be short on power, or is this something new? I suspect it's the engine (need for 2 more cylinders!) I have a 90 F-250, 5.8 V-8, and I think it's lacking power if I tow or put anything in the bed. Fine when it's empty! 5th gear sounds normal, it's really only meant for cruising on the highway, and flat at that. Maybe we should compare gas bills, you might like that 6 cyl a little more. countrycurt0
