Did he tell you that your engine needs rebuilding ? journal bearings are gone to start and the rest needs to be established and all that is done in rebuilding or replacing engine depending on your choice.
this guy was honest if he told you all that and saved you $$$

From all of us, You are welcome !

What does it mean when I have metallic shavings on sensors of an 06 dodge caravan and van won't go forward or reverse


pull the pan off the transmission and check for mechanical failure as the metallic shavings are from something like a failing torque converter or bearings /shafts or oil pumps.

MetAL SHAVINGS ON DIP STICK


metal flakes on the dip stick are not really an issue unless it has gotten to the crank sensor. That would cause the problem that you are talking about. The oil filter is supposed to catch that though.

What oil do you put into a rear diff for a 1993 toyota landcruiser



  • Changing the fluid on this is fairly easy.
  1. Pull the fill plug.
  2. Use a manual pump to evacuate the old fluid.
  3. Fill the rear pumpkin until the 75W - 90 synthetic gear lube just barely seeps out the fill hole.
  4. Wipe any metal shavings off the fill plug.
  5. Insert the fill plug in the hole and snug it up, not to tight, just nice and snug.


  • Hope this helps.

Honda ACCORD 93, when the car starts to warm up it becomes harder to acelerate, rpm's high speed low. its almost like if a belt was to heat up and slip but still turn its gears


have you rtransmission fluid changed, and have them look for metal shavings in the tranny fluid. metal shavings or rey/silver fluid means the torque converter is going bad. it fould be a clogged tranny fluid filter, as well. the fluid change alone, might fix it, for the time being.

I have a new transmission and brakes. also just changed oil. now i am being told i need to change fluid on diferential and metal shavings are coming off the cap. can this be possible? also they told me it...


I think they are taking you for a ride. The differentials should be check every year, but only to add oil. Yes some can die early, but there are differentials out on the road that are 40,50 years old and still running fine. I suggest you find another garage to go to, and next time some one says metal shaving, tell them to let you see and go to the vehicle and have them get some out for you. And if there were shavings, which I have seen, there would also be noise coming from the deferential, a low hum to clanking. To let you know shavings are metal slivers and not the normal wear that looks like gray mud.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1993 Chevy Blazer


Hello;
It sounds as though your trans is going out. How is reverse? If reverse is real strong then you may just have a solenoid going out. Drop the pan and change the oil and filter if you are comfortable doing that. Inspect the pan for metal shavings and contaminents. Otherwise it would need to go to a shop for repair.
Thanks;

i think you have metal shavings on the abs wheel sensor. did you go metal to metal on the brakes? new caliper right? disconect the battery for 10 mins that should do it. first clean that sensor off it might reset itself good luck
