Transmission not shifting out of 1st. Engine light on. Usually occurs in the morning, but in the afternoon the light goes off and it works fine. Shop could not duplicate problem, but read the code. I replaced the throttle position sensor. oxygen sensor code. Not sure which of the 4. check engine light on, transmission would not shift out of first gear until 3500 rpm and then would not shift out of second. replaced throttle position sensor twice and two oxygen sensors that were coding bad.
would not start. Replaced a plugged fuel filter and replaced all spark plugs. runs great.
Difficult starting. Replaced fuel filter and fuel pump. fuel pressure regulator and leaking coolant fitting
very tiny radiator leak near the top of the driver's side. Living with it as the leak is near the top of radiator and fluid does not continue to leak out past current level.
Cracked water fitting on intake manifold. Removed threads with easy-out and replaced fitting.
Check engine light on, determined to be EGR valve. Mechanic cleaned it and it now works fine, no light. Also had the front end aligned and tires rotated and balanced.
Oil cooler lines leaking
Radiator leak - seal between oil cooler and radiator itself. No parts available to replace this seal. Had tried my own o-ring, then sealant to no avail.
