Question about Cars & Trucks

My breville 5 speed juicer won't change speeds anymore. I turn the dial to increase speed and nothing happens unless I apply Pressure on the knob, it then increases to the 5 speed, but goes back to speed one when I remove pressure. What's going on?

Either junk the unit as the speed resistor ( bit connected to the knob) is faulty. If you manage to get spares then the cost to fit and the part may be more than a new unit.

CHECK THE OIL PUMP SUMP TUBE O-RING. THEY COLLAPSE CAUSING THE OIL PUMP TO PULL AIR INSTEAD OF OIL. TO VERIFY OVER FILL ENGINE OIL AND CHECK ENGINE OIL PRESSURE. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM ON ALL NEWER GM V-8 ENGINES : 4.8 5.3 5.7 6.0

SOURCE: vw 1992 oil pressure drops when warmed up

Hook up a manual oil pressure guage and take readings of the actual amount of oil pressure in the engine. It may be that the switch is bad even though it is new. It may also be that you have low enough oil pressure at idle to trip the switch. On my 2.0 liter the low oil switch turns on at 4.4 PSI at idle but when the engine is revved up it turns on below 26 PSI. You may also have 2 oil pressure switches, one for low and one for high. They would be located very close together on the oil filter housing. Make sure you replaced the right switch.
You want to get this straightened out quickly as VW engines are very unforgiving when you put off repairs. Hope this helps.

Pull the wires from the blower. Throw 12 volts and a ground to it(red is B+). If it comes on, it is good. Replace the controller. If it was the relay, some sort of blower speed would have happened. There are other wires to check, but you would have to loose other things to go this direction. Like accessory and ignition.

My 2011 Sonata cruise control stops working going down steep hills. The set light goes off. I had it set at 50mph but applied brakes when it increased to 70mph. Dealership says they can find nothing...


going down steep hills will all but over ride a cruise control, since the motor is trying to keep the vehicle slowed to what your desired speed that you set , unfortunately this doesn't always work,, as your speed increases, the motor can't keep the speed reduced, when you apply the brakes, the system shuts off, cruise controls were meant to be used pretty much on long flat surfaces with Low inclines ,,

If your car has a cabin filter (check owners/service manual) it may be clogged.

You may also have a vacuum leak under the dash causing the vent flaps to not open all the way.

Fan will not work on high (5)

Ok i know this might be a little difficult to understand. BUt If you click on the link above. Find Diagram (a), That picture represents your switch, not complete but in theory. each Resistor means a Different speed. As you turn the Dial it applys current to all the resistor depending on which one it points to. As you can see the (i) represents current and lets say R3 represents "speed 5" Well in theory the less resistors the fast the speed. So the at low speed the dial will be pointing to R1 at medium fan speed the dial will point at R2 and at high Speed "speed 5" the Dial points to R3. Less Resistance More Current More Current more Speed. Now You have No R3...
This basiclly means that the who switch wihich includes Warm and cold and 1,2,3,4,5 and Defrost etc need to be replaced for 5 to work again.

No solution Replace switch

Loss of power steering


If memory serves me correctly... the 05 deville is equipped with "Magnasteer" the electical connector at the rack and pinion is not a pressure sensor unless its on the line itself. The system operates by inducing voltage to magnets in the rack to make turning easier at lw speeds while adding resistance at higher speeds for added control and less drift. Check for any codes on your climate control by pushing "off and warmer" at the same time with the engine off, key on. Google the codes and see if any relate to the steering system and repost! I hope that helps!

A3 power surges


run the fault codes
could be a transmission actuator problem as it senses vacuum changes when moving the accelerator and tries to change ratios ( 2000 to 2500 rpm indicates a ratio change which is the speed increase momentarily until the Transmission range sensor puts it back in the correct ratio for the road speed
check the wiring to the transmission
it is a sensor problem not a transmission failing

Engine Turns Off when running AC


Your throttle speed sensor(idle speed sensor)is not working properly.It's job is to keep the the engine at the proper rpm range when you are not applying the gas peddle.This is the most likely cause.
