Check the ht leads and the coil pack and also get it plugged in to a fault code reader to find out why engine light is on

Hi i am having trouble finding the speed sensors on my 1991 legacy, i think that is what might be causing the shuddering when i am driving, does anyone knoe if that mighjt be the case thans

Possible that the fault is relative of problems in the differential drive or the drive shaft. It is possible that the propeller shaft is bend or has a faulty universal joint which seems to go eccentric. If the rear wheel are jacked up and if you can check the bearings on the wheels and the drive shaft it will be noticed that there is some play or off movement. If so the section from the shaft to the differential must be checked. remove the propeller shaft, somtimes it needs to be checked in a lathe bed. Also check for low transmission fluid in the differential. A possible bearing issue within the gear box output drive shaft must also be confirmed.

I have a 1989 jeep wrangler. yesterday, after the stick shift felt stiff to shift, the clutch felt suddenly loose. Today, the stick shift stopped moving completely while i was driving. Finally, I was able...

Sounds like you are having a clutch problem. The sudden looseness in the clutch pedal indicates a problem with either the hydralic system, (slave or master or line) leaking or clutch pressure plate going out. Check your clutch fluid resevoir first, if low look for a leak under the vehicle, have a friend push the clutch and get underneath to find leak.

It felt like I had run out of petrol,It was very low.I filled up but now i go a few metres then it cuts out again.

sounds like a possible fuel pump could be a clogged fuel filter as well try the filter first.

Lacetti Chevrolet. Malfunction Indicator light is on.

It may be the same problem as my 56 plate Lacetti. The yellow malfunction light came on two weeks ago and two days ago, both times shortly after filling up with petrol to the brim, and I suspect it is the petrol sensor as I only clicked the petrol cap once after fitting it back - the handbook says click it several times. The yellow light also came on yesterday after taking the car a short journey so it is likely that the sensor is still picking up a small escape of petrol, but the car has been fine today with no light appearing now that the fuel level has dropped a bit. Like you, I have not noticed any drop in power with the light on.
