I'd guess that you have a fuel problem. Check the fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail over the injectors--the port looks like a tire valve with a screw-on cap. Pressure should be at least 40 PSI. Any much-lower reading means plugged fuel filter, worn fuel pump, or faulty pressure regulator. Do you have the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner, read any code(s), and pursue to repair(s).

Going down the highway at 55-60 mph I just barely tap the gas and the vehicle jumps, I press the gas hard and it stops, leave off the gas check engine light blinks and jumping continues.


A blinking light usually means exhaust system probably catalic converter. You most likely have a small blockage in it which means exhaust can't get out correctly. Have vehicle scanned at autozone or similar.

What does anyone think about what is wrong with my Chevy cobalt 2010 going down highway and tach is jumping sometimes it does seem my tranny does shift hard


Hi Brent:
Just for a shot in the dark, check the rubber hose coupling for the vacuum line at the transmission (if it even has one) as this used to be an obscure problem that made the transmission do all sorts of weird things.
Just an idea.

My 97 yukon runs at a higher rpm and has vibration and hesation in engine around 2000 rpm and uses almost three times the fuel does not do it all the time


It could be a couple of different issues going on, first I would check to make sure the engine does not have any type of vacuum leak. I check my vehicles with carb cleaner from Wal-mart, the cheap stuff. But be careful! It is very flammable, with the engine running at a idle, spray it in short bursts around the intake and vacuum lines, if there is a leak the engine will either idle up or down. Also, have the computer scanned at your local parts store and see what codes come back. When was the last time it had a complete tuneup? Hope this helps.

I have a 91 chevy c1500 with (350) and when im driving down the highway it feels like the rear end is jumping when im accelerating slowly, but when i accelerate more the jumping goes away. Any Answers?


That would be something a person needs to experience first hand.
Does it feel like it coule be bad shocks and the rear is bouncing. That might have also caused the tires to go a little out of round.
Or is it a vibration? Maybe the tires just need to be balanced. Out of balance tires/wheels will vibrate to a certain speed (say 55-65ish) and smooth out as the speed gets higher.

Cruise goes off when left or right signal is used.


you may need to change your signal/cruise control device. You may try an auto recycling center.
Remove the positive wire from the battery
remove screws at the back of the airbags. Don't worry, you disable them when you remove power,
With a socket 1/2in drive and maybe an 18 or 20 remove steering wheel
Once the wheel is remove you should see your signal/cruise device.
You could go to your local auto store and buy a book or online www.hayes.com and it will help with the procedure
