Cruise and oil lights come on and kill engine while driving what could cause

Until the control module is scanned for fault codes and the diagnostics preformed there is really no way to know the root cause, it may be more than one part.

Can I reset my service stabilitrack and abs light on 2010 Chevy Equinox.

There is no way to reset, the system preforms a self check and if there is an issue the system will not activate and the light comes on. You will need to have the system scanned with a scan tool that can access the ABS system to find what the fault is and correct it.

I got a 2005 X-type Jaguar for the half the dealer's marked price knowing it was in limp mode. The dealer told me that the Jaguar dealer (where he inspected the jaguar) said the "2/4 brk duty solenoids"...

the problem is in the electronics of the transmission
from your statements , it indicates that the TR sensor is not working properly and the transmission has problems selection the correct ratios
the engine light reports on both engine and transmission faults
first get the fault codes then fic/replace the items causing the codes

Had brake work done, then ABS and traction lights come on then Escape hardly runs now?


The engine and the automatic transmission in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

Gear box fault warning light

that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independentshops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away

My 2001 Chrysler Voyager will not go over 40-45mph, the rpms go way up and the van looses power to accel any faster. The transmission fluid looks good and there seems to be no leaks, what could this be? ...

Is the check engine light on?

The transmission defaults into second gear when there is a transmission fault. The two most common problems that cause this are the input and output speed sensors. The fault code retrieved from the transmission control module will let you know which one if one is bad.

The input speed sensor is the one right under the transmission cooler lines where they go into the transmission. The output speed sensor is the one one the right of the transmission (driver side) and looks almost identical to the input speed sensor. Both sensors can be removed with a basic set of tools and a one inch deep socket to remove the sensor itself.

2000 mercury mountianeer o/d light flashing

this OD light flashing means a fault has has been sensed by the transmission control module in the electronic transmission controls, to see what this fault might be have the transmission tested for electronic fault codes that are stored when this OD light flashes, many times this code will be for a transmission slipping issue, u will not fell this most times, if the transmission has more than 60,000 miles on it have the transmission fluid and filter changed and erase the codes, they may not come back

Jerks when shifting from 2nd to 3rd in automatic transmission

Hi, i recommend preforming a basic fluid check just to make sure of the level. If the trans fluid is at a good and safe level, this will confirm a fault within the gear pack that can be traced to the transmission control module. test this device for its operational value. if it is operating correctly, it will then lead you to a faulty shift solenoid. these are located inside the transmission pan. you will need to drop the pan to access these solenoids for testing.

In most cases, this Will be an insufficient fluid level condition but, it could be more serious.
