SOURCE: freestar 2004 rear brake light won't go off. Bulb

I'm assuming all of the brake lights are on? If so there is a brake light switch located way up under the dash that hits on the arm for your brake pedal. If this is not "closed" when the pedal is up (not depressed), your brake lights will stay on. It is adjustable.

Van acts like the fuel filter is plugged, and losses power when going up hills


Do you have a fuel pump? If its bad or weak, you aren't getting enough gas to your engine. Has anyone thought of the filter in your gas tank?

EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve may be stopped up with carbons. This would account for some loss of power as well as odor if leaking around intake. If I remember correctly, egr tube originates just above catalytic converter on this model. Condition may be early signs of cat failure ( commonly accompanied by "rotten egg" odor). I recommend having emission system checked by certified tech to avoid uneccessary component replacement.

Engine chugging, like there is no gas but there is and a sulphar smell


the convertor is the problem.will cause decreased engine power, another sign is bucking and jerking upon accelerating. the car will lose power when going up a hill. if engine runs hotter then usual and coolant is up to par, may be a bad converter.

My 1998 Dodge Ram seems to lose power especailly going up hill and then chugs.


You may check the exhaust system, I had this happen with a same year Dakota and it would bog down the more I tried to accellerate. My cat had fallen apart inside and clogged up the pipe.

Chugging and power lose


Major tune up and change the crank sensor and the camshaft sensor. Also look at the wire harnes for both they have a problem shorting out. Mostly the harness to the crank sensor at or above the oil filter. This wire shorts because of heat and needs to be rerouted and insulated. Also, make sure you have all your gaskets inside of the intake maniflods and throttle body is secure with no air leakes. Change all your senors on this car that seems to be the trouble with this car is the sensors........runjoe

No power


Replace the catalytic converter.

I had the exactly same problem: when it heats up, car loses power and cannot accelerate.
Converter get "clogged" and suffocates machine. THe solutino is to change it (if under 80K miles it is free at Chevy dealer).
