A typical shop diagnostic fee is over $70. If you found this useful, give back to those that take the time to answer your questions. As little as $3 would be appreciated.

yesterday the car arrived.. tranny was running fine, i thought.. than a mech. drained tranny fluid.. he said he installed the correct level.. he did it while laying on the ground.. backyard mech..i had 2 gallons for the filling.. i think he used less than a quart, if that.. when i went to put it into gear it would not move.. went thru all the gears.. it’s an automatic tranny… nothing!!! when he drained the fluid less than several quarts came out… he said it needs seals that can be installed by opening the bottom pan.. and it’s an $800 job if done in a shop.. i was at –advance auto parts and they said they have the flow seals…the tranny seemed to run good until the mech drained the fluid…… i believe the tranny should have 8+ quarts installed to have it run right….. moveover, at the store he pulled fluid that was—not–dextron 111……… the –only–type that should be used…. within 12 hours i will fire him from doing anymore work on my trooper.. thanks for a competent response, okay?????

My Trooper always starts up right away, but after it has warmed up a bit it wants to quit and runs ragged at idle. It has 160K miles. I have replaced the distributor, and plug wires. It also has failed the California Smog test (too much Nitrous Oxide). Any Ideas

I have a 2002 Isuzu Axiom. I’m having 2 problems and I’m not sure if they are related. 1. My door locks for every door except the drivers door will not lock or unlock using the remote or the locking switch on the door panel. I think this my be a module problem can you confirm this also is the module located under the window buttons on the door panel and would a faulty one make the drivers side window hesitate when going up to the closed position. 2. what would cause my windshield wipers not return to the park position.?

I drive the car and when on low side of gear it will backfire thru throttle body and loss of engine power. Replaced: EGR Valve, EGR Solenoid, Dist.Cap, Rotor, Cables, Plugs, TPS Sensor, Fuel Filter, Oil, Oil Filter, checked for vacuum leaks and found non, Engine power is not loss when not in gear, but backfires the same off gear after engine warms up, I change all that and still does the same thing, mostly when warm. I am in Florida (warm/hot weather). Going to replace PCV Valve today.
