Going down steep hills on the freeway (60mph), braking to keep near the speed limits causes a severe shudder throughout the vehicle. The outer edge of the front tires show severe signs of wear (potential...


The shuddering sounds like you need your brake rotors turned or replaced, The wearing of your tires could be worn tie rod ends and that would make the shuddering even worse

I have a '99 Eddie B. Explorer....there is no light at the O/D


If you have the push button on the dash it is called an e40d tranny and if you do not have the button it is called and AODE tranny. Usually you should not see an increase in RPM's unless you are doing over 70 mph. At around 45 you will problem not see an RPM increase. As for the shudder when going up a hill it sounds like it is having issues going into overdrive could be a shift solenoid. Try having the tranny flushed and filter changed and see if this helps it out.

1991 Isuzu 4X4 Pickup 3.1 V6 won't warm start plus shudder in low


Your flywheel sound like it has hot spots on it, making the clutch chatter. You might need to pull the flywheel off and get it re-surface. This is like turning your rotor, or brake drum. If you pull the flywheel, you will see discolor spots on your flywheel. This is called hot spots, and will make the clutch slip.

On the other problem, have you changed to fuel filter and fuel pump. It almost sound like your running out of fuel????

NO POWER / SHUDDER


Is it a standard or automatic transmission? If standard, your clutch may be slipping. While driving down a straight road, push the brake while still in gear and push the gas pedal as well. If the engine slows with the vehicle, the clutch isn't slipping. If the engine speeds up while the vehicle is slowing down, the clutch is slipping.
If it is an automatic, check the transmission fluid. You may be low and the transmission is slipping while under load, or the torque converter is slipping for the same reason. You may have a bad torque converter clutch switch, but the computer should have picked that up and made your "Check Engine" light come on.
These are the main reasons you would be losing power going up hills unless your engine isn't powerful enough to handle the larger tires on extreme hills. (It takes more power to turn a larger wheel going up hill since the vehile has to travel further for each revolution of a larger tire. Incidentally, have your speedometer checked. You will be going faster than what the speedo says since you put larger tires on.) Good Luck.
