SOURCE: 1999 jeep grand cherokee transmission

This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.

Think it's time to have it scanned & find out for sure, it will probably save you money in the long run if you have it checked now. Sometimes it's a simple as removing the wiring plugs and cleaning them thoroughly & re-installing them, but the longer you leave it, the more chance of worse damage.

SOURCE: 02 Jeep Liberty horn going off

Hi, there are two switches involved in actuating the horn: the horn relay which when closed will send current to the horn and the "clockspring" in the steering column that provides the connection to the steering wheel horn button, which when grounded activates the relay's switch. It is more likely that the clockspring has developed a direct short to ground due to a broken internal wire. There is one further wrinkle: the actuation of the relay is intermediated by the body controller which also needs to activate the horn as part of the anti-theft alarm system but if that where the cause it would probably also flash the park, tail, and headlights while the horn was falsely sounding. The most likely cause is the clockspring which you could assess by noticing if you can cause the horn to sound be repeated turning of the steering wheel to prompt the false grounding. Or when it blasts on its own accord turn the wheel slightly to see if that cuts off the horn.
If that doesn't reveal a fault you could try switching the horn relay with a similar relay such as the adjacent headlamp delay relay in the under dash fuse box (they are side by side) which if the horn stopped its issue and instead the headlamps came on for no good reason would tell you that the horn relay is spontaneously closing its switch and therefor needs to be replaced).
If neither approach is revelatory, then the body computer would be suspect. But verification would be in order due to the cost.

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....

Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

I have a 94 Mitsubishi Diamante ES. A month ago I noticed that transmission was getting stemming hot after driving on a high way. I let the car cool down and then nothing happened for about two weeks....

theres a good chance you need a replacemnt transmission. Since this problem is real your only option to get it professionaly inspected . We can guess, but a guess isn't going to fix it.

99 Mercury sable speedo/tranny

VSS (vehicle speed sensor) Tells the PCM (computer) the speed of the vehicle so the PCM can make the proper information to the TCM (transmission control module) to shift.
YOU are goin gto need a scan tool NOt a code reader to monitor the VSS to see what it is putting out for speed when the car is moving But I believe you need a VSS but do not not Go out and buy one until you have had it tested , and can positively confrim it is bad first. Please rate this a fixya if you find this advice helpful, Thanks Randy
