I have a 2001 chevy S10. It would loose power only when going up hills... well, then later when it was pretty much on any non flat surface. I thought it might have been the trans but it shifted just fine. I did a trans Svc just to see fluid & filter and they were in good shape. So, I started reading articles in this forum and I kept seeing ppl mention fuel filter or catalytic converter. Well, I just recently changed my cat and fuel pump so why not cut that F'r off. I could quite put my finger on the problem any way and I needed my truck. It worked! My truck drives fine now
- I post this bc no one ever posts anything once their problem gets fixed and what fixed it. I hope this helps someone.

I would say it's the filter or you got some bad gas , Might try a bottle of HEAT to pour into your tank first, good luck.

When pressing on the accelerator my safari bogs down and starts to lose power.

Sounds like the accelerator linkage or kick down band of the transmission need adjustment.

I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt and it will not start half the time and when it does it idols really low and the RPM's will jump up and down without touching the gas and it will stall while driving and when...

Try new spark plugs and wires, or an overall tuneup. This is a fairly new vehicle, shouldn't be to much wrong with it, unless it just haven't been taken care of.

Hello my transfer box and lock box on the 4 lo imposible to change the way my truck its a 2001 dodge dakota 3.9 v6

Your bound up. You can usually get it unbound by driving back and forth. If you can't get into reverse then go to a small hill drive up a little ways then coast back down. don't drive in 4 wheel drive unless it is slick out as it can be a little bit hard on the running gear. try going forward very slowly then put on the brakes kinda hard. this may help release the bound up condition

Best way to refill is to put additive in first, then add fluid till full. If you can do this safely, run car with both rear wheels off the ground after filling and run through the gears. Make sure you do not try to go from foreward gears to reverse or park while wheels are spinning. When doing this vehicle should be on a lift or on very good jackstands with nothing in front of car for a good distance. Alternate method is to drive slowly putting little pressure on trans till gear shifts have been completed. After this, re-check unit for full.
