2005 dodge dakota 3.7L 2WD it only seems to happen when very hot outside, especially after using ac, sudden loss of power, especially bad acceleration, does not happen only when ac is running

Have your Exhaust Gasses Recirculation(EGR) Valve checked for proper operation. Check that vacuum lines are good, connected with no cracks. A faulty EGR will cause these symptoms to occur. Typically loss of power on climbing a hill. A/C on is making for the same effect.

Transceiver signal interference

The FT-840 uses a die-cast RF power amp with thermally switched fan to ensure full power output (up to 100 watts). The digitally synthesized local signals ensure clean, low-noise transmitter output on all HF amateur band. There might be no AC line interference. it has strong Rf output. any AC line intersect does not affect its radio performance. Check and adjust RF power so to maintain proper output. some times more RF power generated at the output may cause interference. adjust Rf power..Even some unfiltered Noise getting the other end of the end may calso cause interference. Check for any Ripple voltages present at the output. Contact authorised service station for further Rectification. thank you shanth

How to Check main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line ?

The main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line

* Weather:
Precipitation can leak into phone lines and cause disruptions. Lightning, even at a distance, can damage the connection.
Checked the connections the cable and the Sockets
If you have the Test socket or the First Socket where the Telephone is is entering .. check the Connections there

* Electrical interference:
Check the Power lines,
Check radio or television transmitters, transformers and other electronic devices may causing noise on the phone line.

* Other phone devices:
Check for the Connection to the FAX check by unpluging the FAX Machine or answering machines,
Disconnect the other phones and line splitters --
Disconnect the Splitters or devices that allow two phones to fit on one phone jack -- can cause phone line noise.

* DSL services:
The high-frequency signals coming from DSL (digital subscriber line) devices sharing the phone line can create problems for other technology connected to the line.

***Note : high-frequency signals coming from DSL helps for FAST Internet Connection speed which sometime cause the problem to the Phone or Voice signals for this need to contact to ISP to check the Voice margin .. that may effect your internet Speed

IF the above wont work..

You can try keeping the device near Heater .. it could be the Moisture which might causing this issue
Show the Device to the Service provider to repair it

Black smoke from tailpipe, loss of power, anyone know?

What year, make and model car is this? Most likely, black smoke is
usually a carburator problem. If it's fuel injected, black smoke can be caused by 1) leaking or faulty fuel injecters, 2) faulty choke, 3)dirty air
filter or 4) faulty distributor cap and/or rotor. Hope this helps.

TV audio through Digital line #1 will do to silent after a while

Sudden silence on a digital feed is loss of usable signal.

Is it ONLY on Line #1? What happens if you switch it to #2?

Since it's optical, you have to be careful routing the cable with no small-radius bends as they cause signal loss. Or the cable itself could be the problem. Try another one. Or HDMI.

My modem shuts off all the time and I have to keep disconnected it and wait to plug it back in.And then again for it to happen again often. The green lights on the modems only light up to 3 at times or...

You have a signal problem most likely. Too many cable splitters on the line that modem is on, therefore reducing your signal power. An amplifier will not help because most of the time this is an upstream related signal issue. The best thing to do for cable modems is run them a direct line from your de-marc point. This is usually in your basement in some panel (newer homes), or outside where your power and other utilities come in. Just make sure the line running to your modem is off of the very first splitter. For example you would have your main line coming in, go to a 2 way splitter, one leg to the modem, the other leg to a 4 way splitter that powers your 4 tvs in the house.

Of course it could always be the main line to your house is bad, or just that the modem is bad. But honestly - too many splitters and low quality cabling/splitters is 99% of the cause.

Intel 2915AB Connection problem

Intermittent disconnection issues on a radio/wireless network will generally be caused by interferance (speakers, power board fully loaded, High wattage Lamp (flourescent bulbs usually) all parked too close to the wireless router, access point or network card. or possibly due to interuption of the active signal possibly because the distance of the router and network card/access point is just on the edge of the best signal limit and disruption occurs when someone or something gets up and moves itself inbetween the two service points)I resolved my disconnection issues by purchasing a wireless Kite for the access point and router, which will intensify the radio signal and bring the access points within closer range of each other, friends of mine have resolved intermittent signal issues by making a thin tube of rolled tinfoil about 30cm long slipped over each aerial affected by the intermittent signal disconnection. Also verify the "line of sight and non line of sight" signal distance limits for your radio equipment as the signal distance will decrease depending on the age of your wireless equipment, most equipment is in the 30Ft non line of sight- 100Ft line of sight arena out of the box but you can expect to half this figure after 3 - 5 years of continued use. Basically three options Interferance, Interupption or age only distance testing will verify this accurately IE: bring the router and access point withing 1Ft of each other and start walking away still holding the access point, whilst a user monitors the radio network condition.
