    Shocks leaking?

    Perfect explanation.

    Engine stops running

    If that is the case, I would be looking at the EGR as the problem. It could be sticking open at idle when it should be closed.

    Engine stops running

    We know you have compression, so it has to be either fuel or ign. With no codes, what I have done in your situation is connect a pressure fuel gauge and an old timming light to a spark plug wire and route both to the windshield where I can see them. Now you should be able to determine if it...

    Shocks leaking?

    No, He is comparing an engine to a shock.

    2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5

    Give us the actual codes, not a description. Many parts guys give you a verbal account of the code. We need the actual code number to be helpful.

    Question about brake calipers

    That is what I was trying to say in post #5, BUT YOU STATED IT BETTER. " I experienced a similar situation recently and in my case the brake pad metal backing was just enough oversized (maybe a few thousands of an inch) and was dragging on the caliper solid housing so that it would not retract...

    Question about brake calipers

    Because of the normal differential action ANY slight drag on one wheel (even normal drag from brakes or axle friction or whatever) will make that wheel stop and and the other turn. So what you see could be normal or not. I experienced a similar situation recently and in my case the brake pad...

    Thanks for that explaination, grcauto. Makes sense. At 85 years old and yars out of touch, I am not always (hardly ever) up to date. But I like to help when I can and learn on this site.

    Instrument cluster lights up but none of the gauges move

    Sounds like a great diagnostic idea.

    1997 Buick Century 4t65-e no first gear

    I agree on the Lube Gard Red and I believe that is the product that bp042665 ( who runs a trans shop) usually recommends here. I have never used the BG products and they may be just as good or better, I am not knowlegable about that. bp042665

    New Project '98 A604/41TE

    WOW, Kev that is a complete and informative pdf. With that and the fact that the op is pulling the trans, he should have all he needs.

    2017 Ram 2500 4x4 pulls to the right?

    I have never heard of a brand or set of tires that could do that. One bad tire maybe, but even that is unlikely. Also considering the rotations that have been done I doubt it is a tire. It almost has to be out of alignment, but since they state there is no adjustment, it may be a bent axle or...

    I like Kev's suggestion. I think Cats usually fail completely, not intermittently.

    Opinions on drilled and slotted rotors

    I agree with nickb2 above. I was hesitant to say anything because I also only have this as an opinion and not backed by any facts.

    Storing 2015 Chevy Trax

    I used to use car covers. But now I feel they can do as much damage as good and simply wash the vehicle often. Not worth the expense and trouble for me.

    2009 Cadillac DTS

    I think you will be fine. They do go bad and the newer the vehicle the worse the problem may be due to poorer quality metals being used in many electrical components. Enjoy your trip and do not worry too much about it.

    2007 frontier Rear axle , how to find ratio

    As long as you are replacing it, the "for sure way" it to calculate the number of teeth in the ring gear and divide it by the number of teeth in the pinion gear, to provide you with a result to 1 ratio. For example, if the pinion gear has 41 teeth, and the ring gear has 11 teeth, the ratio...

    A/C only works on MAX

    Here is my wild guess: I assume Regular air is to not recirculate, but to allow fresh air into the cabin through the A/C . But perhaps a blend door is actuating improperly and instead of opening the fresh outside air it is opening the heat door or some other blend door problem. I do not know...
