95 dodge van, 2500. has a BAD engine miss, seems to smooth out when going up hill (giving it some gas) gets bad again when just going cruise speed..


Well to start with, if you have a 1995 Dodge van and it has the original engine, you have a fuel injector for each cylinder. The last year Dodge used a carb was 1987.
So you could have injectors that are not working, or the plugs may not be firing because of the cap or rotor, or it could be a compression or vac problem.
I would want to know which cylinders and then go down the list of possible causes. You should be able to use a vac gauge or tach and pull one wire at a time to find the weak cylinders.

2001 ford windstar lx master cylinder new i replaced but abs n brake light come on


Needs to have code reset for abs by a obd2 code reader with abs or find a parts house or shop that will reset it. Brake light coming on did you bleed the master cylinder out by connecting rubber lines to ths plastic insert ******* then acuating the master cylinder til all air is pumped out of master cylinder if that was not done then you will need to bleed all brakes until air is out of system that should turn brake light off

have you had a compression test done to check head gasket problem
misfires are most likely from faulty/dirty injectors
problem ignition igniters will cause more than misfires , it it runs at all

The brake pedal goes all the way to the floor and the car will not stop. I was told it was the module but im not sure what it looks like or where it is to purchase a used one.


Have you checked the brake fluid level? It may be empty. There may be air in the brake lines. You may have a bad slave cylinder, caliper or master cylinder. Don't really know what kind of "module" would cause the pedal to go to the floor. Sounds like someone making stuff up.

Bad brake master cylinder could cause this, It will start leaking internally and not build up pressure. Will happen just do to age, will need to replace it and bleed brake system.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?


I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now
