Acceleration, transmission, or steering issue?

2003 Jaguar x type. car runs fine, all fluids good, no visual parts broken, leaking, or loose. Vehicle drives fine, the incident occurs when it reaches operating temp possible coincidence. Acceleration tends to die. Shift to reverse, back to drive, it's fine, then it occurs again within less than a minute at no more than 35 MPH average speed. No warning lights, squeaking sound occurs while in motion only. My friend said when it happened to him, he couldn't steer. The steering problem I couldn't duplicate. Any ideas?

Oil leak on motor of a 2003 sunfire 2.2 engine on the front end of motor alternator is covered in oil


Hi,

Let's start by telling you how to diagnose the problem.

Most oil leaks are easily located and repaired by visually finding the leak and replacing or repairing the necessary parts. On some occasions a fluid leak may be difficult to locate or repair. The following procedure may help in locating and repairing most leaks.

Finding the Leak

? Identify the fluid, determine whether it is engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, power steering fluid, etc.
? At what location or point is the fluid leaking from? After running the vehicle at normal operating temperature, park the vehicle over a large sheet of paper, After a few minutes, you should be able to ascertain the approximate location of the leak by the drippings on the paper.
? Visually check around the suspected component. Check around all gasket mating surfaces and hoses for leaks. If your car provides engine oil cooling, check the oil lines leading to the radiator. A mirror is useful for finding leaks in areas that are hard to reach. If the leak still cannot be found, it may be necessary to clean the suspected area with a degreaser, steam or spray solvent. Most car washes provide this service or make it possible for you to do it yourself. Clean the area well, then dry the area. Operate the vehicle for several miles at normal operating temperatures and varying speeds. After operating the vehicle , visually check the suspected component. If you still cannot locate the leak, try using the power method.


The Powder Method

? Clean the suspected area.
? Apply an aerosol-type powder, e.g., face powder, to the suspected area.
? Operate the car under normal operating conditions.
? Visually inspect the suspected component. You should be able to trace the leak path over the white powder surface to the source.


Good luck and all the best

I think my son hit something to cause the transmission fluid to all leak out...there is a stream from my house to where the vehicle quit and a puddle underneath...i see where to check the fluid, but not...


You will need to look under the vehicle at the transmission and verify if there is transmission case damage,a broken transmission line ect. if your son ran over something and you can see the damage then adding fluid will cause it to just leak back out of the case. You will probably need it to be towed to the mechanic if that is the case. If you try and drive it in that condition you may cause permanent damage to the vehicle's tranny. And transmission fluid is usually added in the same tube that contains the dip stick to check the level of the fluid. Also power steering fluid will also look like transmission fluid and could be a power steering leak.

Siffness with steering , squeaking noise from the front wheel.


Low on fluid in the pump, if it leaking from the steering rack then it needs replacement, If theres is a squeal then the belt is loose or the pump itself is bad. If you have a bad creaking noise then the ball joints need replacement, bad ball joints can lock up the steering but the worst it can do is drop the front of the frame to the ground and which could be very dangerous when driving..
