Hi, if oil seaps on to the engine mounting they will be sloppy. its an old girl now, and maybe the engine mountings are rough, if this is the case you need to change both. ask a mate to give it a rev, and look at the engine, it should only move at the start of the rev. if it is a blur. the engine mountings need replacing. the suspension can do the same thing. be pussing hard down on the wings and let go will test this. if the bounce lasts more than 3 then it is your suspension gerry

My ac only blows hot air and wont take a charge

Quick test. Find the receiver drier there should be a sensor on it this is a pressure sensor the compressor will not cut in if low on gas cause the lubricant flows through the system with the gas. Unplug sensor & bridge the wires in the plug. With car running & A/C on your A/C clutch should now cut in. This will test the compressor & clutch but don't leave it bridged or you will destroy the compressor. Otherwise could be switch etc but start with that test. As for not accepting gas I don't know Blockage maybe? bad valve?

If you feel the pulsation in the wheel than its the front rotors that are likely warped. If you feel it in the seat than its the rear drums or rotors. If you don't feel it until you push on the brake pedal than it has to be in the brake system. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

I have a 2002 chev silverado 2500HD duramax 4x4, The truck starts only when given a shot of quick start in the airbox. After it runs great you can shut it off then re start it fine. It will not start...

You need new glow plugs. Im guessing you live somewhere kind of cold maybe. It starts just fine after running because the motor is already warm. Quick start will work.....or at least it did for me until I used one mornig and went to crank and BOOM. It blew my air filter case to pieces and caught the filter on fire. Starting fluid is not meant for diesel motors. If you cant afford new glow plugs what worked for me is turn on the key all the way but dont crank wait 10 sec then repeat a few times and it should crank unless its really cold out or the plugs are really bad. Trust me thats what it is. I replaced mine and now It cranks right up even when its super cold.

Stalls when I put it in gear or come to a stop runs fine otherwise

you need to change your idle motor (iac valve) this controls the air that engine needs to mix with the fuel to run.simple to do yourself,two screws and one 2 wire plug.
