To defrag your hard drive go to , start menu --> all programs --> accessories --> system tools --> disk defragment --> then select your hard drive and click defragment. This can take a few hours depending on how big your hard drive is and how much stuff you got. This may not even speed up your system. if your computer is running slow go to task manager and go to the proccesses tab and check if there is any unnessesary proccess running, if so just end them. write down the name of it and then delete it from your computer if you dont need it. :) hope that works. :)

Im trying to fix a p38 1999 wabcoD abs traction failure prpblem, live data for the abs sensors signal all round are the same and goes up and down with road speed.the wheel speed os&ns rear,up


Erratic signals come from the speed sensors(all that I found). At the sensors by the tires/CV axles. When I tear them apart (the bearings) they have fine metal around them. The causes the erratic signals. As you said, they seem normal at most points. But you have to watch and see where(the signal) they jump. Could be 2 MPH or 20 MPH. Replace that wheel bearing.

Acceleration problems ,at hiway speeds, needing more speed car downshifts sputters misses then eventually snaps backto normal whats up?


Ok. I'll give you my best guess, although I am not a Dodge Stratus expert. Based upon your description of the problem, I am to assume that the vehicle has problems accelerating up to speed, but once there, cruises ok unless you are going uphill or need to accelerate quickly, then power falls off rapidly and acceleration returns very slowly. If that is accurate, I would suspect the EGR valve. This is because at ihighway cruising speeds the EGR valve is pretty much wide open, letting exhaust gases back into the intake. When you need to accelerate, pressing the accelerator results in intake vacuum drop. This is partially compensated for by closing the EGR valve. If the EGR fails to close or sticks partway open, the exhaust gases will lower intake vacuum even further, and rob engine power. This can also cause the onboard computer to force a downshift to the transmission, as vacuum sensors are used to determine engine loading and the need to reduce gearing. In addition, a partially open EGR valve can cause erratic idle as it affects static intake vacuum (EGR is normally closed at idle) and the onboard computer must continually compensate, resulting is unstable idling.

I experience some problem with my 2002 odyssey. the check engine is on and when it goes up from shift to shift, it does not go the upper speed easily. As if you put the speed at position 2 and you...


Hi:
The first thing to do is to have someone check to see what code is tripping the check engine light. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. Check to make sure your transmission fluid is full, and clean. Sometimes a vehicle speed sensor can cause erratic transmission up shifting, but see what codes are tripped first

Hello,

From the TI Knowledge Base and FAQ Hope it helps.
If a piece foreign material such as a pencil lead is lodged in the I/O port of the calculator, it may create a short causing the calculator to respond slowly to key press entries.
If the piece of conductive material can be removed, it may restore the calculator to normal operating condition.
If the material cannot be removed, contact TI-Cares Customer Support to proceed with an out of warranty product replacement.
If conductive material is not lodged in the I/O port and the calculator responds slowly to key press entries, contact TI-Cares Customer Support for further troubleshooting and resolution.

Are you using Windows?
If so clean out your temporary files and defrag the drive.
Printers in Windows spool the job to a temporary file and then retrieves it.If the temp folder is full or the drive is fragmented this will cause your issue.
