    4L60E shifting hard please help

    You say it's had 3 transmissions replaced since the vehicle was new and the 4th is now acing up. Just curious....what were the reasons for the three previous replacements and where did the replacements (including the current one) come from? Were they straight rebuilds or were internal...

    Question on o2 sensors

    Typically, there are two; upstream and downstream (catalytic converter in between both). Just going by your year and model, the dealership parts diagram shows two. However, the parts list shows a left and right upstream and a left and right downstream, which implies there are 4 sensors. To...

    95' Toyota Lexus 400. "Speed" indicator is intermittent. It's either actual speed or its at zero when driving.

    The LS400 is known for sticking speedometer (and tach) needles. If the odometer is counting mi/km it's not the VSS - the problem is in the speedometer head. My '98 speedo needle will stick occasionally depending on the ambient temperature, usually when it's warm/hot. Whacking the top of the...

    1999 Ford Explorer

    I'm an old skool BW and Muncie 4-speed guy but from your symptoms, it sounds like there's an issue with the counter shaft. The counter shaft is in constant mesh with the main shaft so yeah....this sound like a big deal. I'd go the wrecking/salvage yard route as well.
