Hi I have a 2010 chevy traverse , it makes a loud rattling noise when first started in the morning and the check engine lite is on

Check engine light on - did you have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ? Do you have it's oil changed on time . Loud rattling noise could be caused by the VVT - In internal combustion engines, variable valve timing (VVT) is the process of altering the timing of a valve lift event, and is often used to improve performance, fuel economy or emissions. It is increasingly being used in combination with variable valve lift systems.
Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop .

Why is my 94 chev prizem stalling and sputtering up hill

Hills are when you need the most power. More Power needs more gas and air than normal. Clogged air filter is easiest to check. Also check fuel filter, fuel injectors and fuel pump.

My turbo on my f250 is using more power going down a flat streatch of road and even more going up a hill or slight incline. What would cause the increase of power to the turbo.

Your turbo is using more power??? Do you mean it is giving more boost? The turbo runs off of exhaust gasses. It doesn't use any "engine" power to operate. Any engine operation that will cause more exhaust gasses will make the turbo spin faster and provide more boost.

Holden Viva- Automatic transmission troubles.

Hey mate, Had exactly the same problem. Suggest you take the car to your local auto transmission repair centre (not holden) and they can check the electrical diagnostics - if it the Transmission inhibitor Switch (as it was on mine - if so should cost you no more than 1 hour labour and about $75 - $95 for the switch.

My 92 corolla revs loudly but engine does nothing.

Sounds like you have massive clutch slippage and you will have to have the clutch replaced and resurface the flywheel for maximum clampping power at a machine shop.

1990 gmc k2500 new 5.7engine & turbo 400 ,power lose & noise.

sounds as if you may be looking in the wrong spot. If different gearing is drastically changing the symptoms you may want to check the trans. or torque converter. sudden pop with engine rpm increase and lack of power sounds like possible band breakage in transmission or impellor breakage in torque converter.
