Question about Subaru Outback

1 Answer

1997 - 100,000 Kms Sometimes after driving a longer distance 100 kms, when I slow down and then try to speed up again, the car feels like it is in 4th gear and struggling to move and I can't get it to go into 1st or 2nd to speed up. I have even tried shifting my automatic down to 1 or 2 but to no avail. The problem is solved by stopping the car and letting it sit for about 15 minutes. Any ideas as to what it might be?

I have a 1990 ford na fairlane with digital speedo and taco. At the moment it's not reading the speed, kms travelled or kms on the clock. And the gear box is also slipping?

Your electronic speed sensor has failed. Replace the speed sensor and all will be right again... inexpensive part and relatively easy replacement.

Having trouble with my kia carnival over heating, now my heaters in car are no longer working, what could this mean?

my kia carnival 2002 keeps less heating when the car is in slow speed & when it is fast at 100 KM/H the RPM comes down, there is gear oil at Max & engine oil at max and water is getting low. with this i replaced thermostat, have had radiator pressure tested and was fine, radiator water is full but coolant box is getting empty whilst driving the distance of 100 kms. also when it begins to little overheat or just taking off the speed there is a loud ascending rattling noise which seems to come from the under right side of engine But when it catches the speed everything is smooth. & then you park for an hour the coolant tank is empty.or at low. please tell me what to do.
