Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 700 S Maxim

Transmission rumbling and tach shaking on XJ700 Yamaha

Last night I had to apply full throttle at low speed on a steep climb to get out of traffic, since then my '85 XJ700 Yamaha makes a rumbling noise and shakes a lot above 20 MPH, the Rev counter also shakes all around. I must have damaged something in the transmission. CV joint? Any experience on this type of mechanical failure?

What does it mean when I come to a comelete stop and my car rumbles.


it rumbles as you are about to stop, well that depends.

if there is a vibration AS you are applying the brakes, and about to reach a stop, it could be that your brake rotors need machining, or "turned"; however, in this case, you would also hear a grinding, as well as feel the grinding through your foot.

there is also a "rumbling" associated with a strut mount gone bad; however, this is more of an audible clanking, and is also audible when driving slow on a bumpy road, and not really specifically in the process of stopping.

for either of these, please stop using your radio, and possibly open the windows, to better describe the sound.

IF the car shakes when sitting at a stoplight, or such, please watch your rpm gauge (tachometer), and see if the idle speed is exceptionally low or erratic.

if this is the case, it may be that your throttle positioning sensor, mass airflow sensor, or the like, is malfunctioning, and is giving a warm engine a fuel/air mix appropriate for a cold engine.

Depending on the actual code for the O2 sensor, the fuel pressure may be low at times. You may want to look at fuel pressure and delivery.

Power loss in range rover p38 4.6 lt when going up hill


the p38 is a bit sluggish and slow on long steep hills, really not geared for performance but more as a piece of heavy equipment. strong horsepower wise very formidable powertrain but you're not going to have that get up and go that many drivers look for. couple quick suggestions you may want to check your plugs and wires a common weak spot in the ignition system, and i might suggest also running i can of seafoam through your engine. you deposit in your gas tank runs through with the half a tank of gas. i'm not a big advocate of fuel additives or octane boosters but in the case of seafoam it's definitely a worthwhile and proven product. don't forget also your sport mode button down next to your shift lever push that button down and it keeps your transmission from overdrive so you can accelerate into freeway traffic and climb hills without your transmission shifting

2002 Santa Fe 127174 miles. On hills car slows dwn, rpm is climbing, speed is droping. on steep hills from a dead stop rpm's are 4,000 speed is just below 20mph. have had the fluid flushed twice.


sounds like your transmission is going bad fast. get it checked asap to see if it can still be saved. aamco will take a look at it. if its completely bad, then getting a new transmission might be cheaper than getting the current one fixed so look into that!!

Running at idle speed


1) Check the "Economy Throttle" setting (or some similar verbage). Inverter types dont have to run full speed to produce full voltage.

2) Apply a load. These magically accellerate and decellerate according to load conditions.

Hope this helps,
