SOURCE: [2007 ford f550 72000mls. v10 automatic. motor cease

sounds like u had a oil pump go bad

if motor ceased it junk now but with this truck only having 72000 miles on it i would put a new motor in it if you do decide to put new motor in it and plan on doing that kind of towing i highly recomend puting a oil cooler on it and high voulme oil pump if this truck has a factory oil cooler that in the radaitor i recomend u disconnect that one and put a aftermarket cooler on it if u do decide to reuse old oil cooler make sure you blow all the old oil out of cooler because it probley has **** in it from motor seizeing

SOURCE: oil mixing with gas no temp rise no water loss.2.2

yes it is possible to have a failed injector. test pulse and then remove the rail, leave the injectors hooked up electrically and have someone turn the key on (prepare for fuel spray by disconnecting the ignition and covering the area with a protective cover to also prevent the risk of fires), and watch for the patern. you can also isolate the problem easier by when it is running, disconnecting the harness at the injector or plug wire and notice the engine change. the one that doesnt change, is your problematic cylinder. then test accordingly.

SOURCE: The oil pressure gauge in

You need to verify that you actually have oil pressure before continuing to drive. It may only be the sender or the gauge, but you need to verify oil pressure. The sender is on the right side of the engine block, remove that,pull your coil wire so the engine won't start, and crank it over. If you have oil pressure, oil will squirt out of hole.

When im driving or giving car gas oil pressure is good, if car stops moving and gets no gas oil pressure drops to zero? I drive a 2007 gmc envoy 4.2 liter. Any ideas everyone says just a bad motor.

Are you hearing a knocking coming from the engine if so yeah there may be a rod getting ready to go soon which would be an engine replacement. Have you checked the oil levels? It could also be an oil pump or oil pressure sensor. There are many things to consider and many things it could be.

When I stomp on my brakes let's say in an emergency the pedal is very hard and the brakes don't realy work at all but if I use them normally they are perfect it's on a ford au xr6 ute

to test your brake assist is working. stop the motor. Press w few times the brakes, till the pedal feels sturdy. Then while pressing the pedal down firmly, start the engine. When you feel the pedal going down, like feeling "soft" you know the brake assist works. If nothing changes it is defect.

Liquea gasolina por la parte superior del tanque de gasolina dodge durango 2005 motor 3.7

follow the steps for fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Drive until your gas tank is nearly empty, ideally until the fuel level is below the gas tank leak, if possible. You can determine this by routinely stopping and checking for oil leaks. If oil is still leaking, the gas tank is still filled above the leak. Use brake cleaner to clear 6 to 8 inches around the leak. Wear gloves and protective glasses while you work. Do not let your gas tank completely empty before you perform repairs.
    • 2 Use a scraper and sandpaper to remove road tar, rust or grime around the leak. Use brake cleaner on the area again and allow it to dry
    • 3 Remove the epoxy from its packaging, taking the same amount from both sticks. Mix the epoxy together, massaging it between your fingers until it is the same color.
    • 4 Form epoxy into a cone shape and push it into the hole or leaky area. Use a plastic spreader to smooth the remaining epoxy into place. Allow the epoxy to completely cure. If the leaking problem persists, take the car in for professional repairs.

My 1996 GMC jimmy wants to stall when I come to a stop. The RPM gage goes up & down then drops below 1000 RPMS and stalls.

I would go down to your local auto parts store and do an alternator and battery test. It sounds like at low rpms you are loosing volts. When you apply the brakes you would be supprised how much power from the engine it takes. You could also be loosing oil pressure. Check your oil level. When your engine drops low rpm, the oil pressure drops and shuts down the engine.
