Hello, we have the same prob with our 143 Scania, it is sometimes very slow to change back down, but is fine going up through the gears.

Shifter for low and high range won't switch from high to low 10 speed eaton fuller manual transmission

the small air valve at the box will be suspect as they tend to seize up and not move
check that the plastic air lines to the switch or box are still intact
check that the gear knob is operational
some knobs are where you move the lever sideways to change the ratio and others have a pull up knob under the lever handle
the flick switch sometimes develops problems in the rubber"O" rings

Hi I'm getting low compression pressure on cylinder 2 on my Renault Clio 1.4 16v 2003 model 1,3&4 are OK I have changed head gasket,valves,rings but still the compression is low can anyone help please

I wonder did you check your work as you progressed?
Pressure testing the valve seats for instance or even just a paraffin test? A good valve seat is difficult to obtain with the hardened steel seats used for unleaded fuel, especially when using a coarse grade of carborundum paste.

In order to discover where the compression leak is it will be necessary to set the cylinder at the top of the compression stroke, lock the engine and then inject compressed air into the cylinder using either a propriety or home-made adapter in the spark plug hole. It will soon be obvious where the air is leaking from indicating the fault.

Valve clearances are important and in the case of hydraulic self-adjusting valve lifters it is possible for them to stick and hold the valve slightly open. I generally squeeze each one in a vice several times until all the oil has been evacuated.
If the valve spring is weak or the oil pressure relief valve is stuck closed tappet jacking is possible.
Good luck!

1992 olds cutlass supreme wont accelerate when pushing the gas pedal

Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

97 oldsmobile 88 p0507 IAC revolutions higher than expected

Well code 507 means the computer can not keep the idle speed within normal range.
What you did covers most of the possible causes, plus a sticking throttle cable or a vac leak.
When the idle speed is too high, something is letting more air into the intake than the computer wants.
So you would need to know if the throttle plate is closing all the way, and if there are any vac leaks that change with engine speed or temp.

My Mercedes C200 Komp has started sticking in 2nd or 3rd gear for the first journey of the day only(?) Been advised of a gear box oil leak and told that an Electrol spped plate, filter, oil and plug is...

hi check and clean the MS air flow sensor, also the gear box needs a service every 2 years. now the service technician will tell you major gear box problems but it happened to me aswell and it turns out the valves inside the gear box was sticking to the valve body and causing the gears to stay in a specific gear till it reaches the rev limiter and would change. so after i got the oil and filter changed on my box, it still got stuck but dont worry as thats a common problem with a very easy solution, take the car on a long road and really put your foot down, let the engine and gear box temperature rise from hard driving and the valves should release itself from the body of the box and re-lubricate itself not to get stuck again

Put new brake pads on, now brakes were smoking. Sticking caliper?

They are rather easy to replace, disconnect the brake hose, and remove the caliper as you did replacing the pads. You'll need to then bleed the caliper until clear fluid, with no air bubbles come from the bleeder screw. Check that you don't have a collapsed brake hose, not letting the fluid return to the master cylinder.

My KLX 125 2004 will turn over but wont idle

Might check: Air filter, choke malfuntion or sticking, dirty carb (idle circuit), valve adjustment, and sometimes a weak spark (cap, plug, wire). Could need a new top end (check compression after adjusting valves) or a vacuum leak in the intake manifold (cracks, petcock line off...not sure if this model uses a petcock vacuum shut off). Good luck.
