    2011 6-speed manual Mazda6 transmission issues

    Possible??? Sure, maybe even "likely". Change the fluid and filter. Serious off-roaders often loosen drain plugs to let most of the water out after fording streams.

    2008 Tahoe park assist codes short to battery

    I just made a quick peek at the schematic posted earlier in this thread, but it seems that the sensors connect to the module with just wiring with no intermediate connectors or devices. I suggest you try connecting the sensors direct to the module, eliminating the car wiring, and see if that...

    fluttering RPMs and lack of acceleration power

    "... where they were able to reenact the problem, but their system did not result with any data and there were no error code that appeared." That doesn't make much sense to me. If they were able to duplicate the "poor power" condition, then there surely must have been data that gave hints. In...

    2016 Infinity QX80 throwing Transmission code P1734

    List your specific problems/symptoms, in your own words, along with any codes set. I suggest you start a new thread, to avoid confusion. Yeah, $10K is a pretty painful blast of the "parts cannon". Post where you are located, somebody here may be able to recommend an independent shop that is...

    2008 Tahoe park assist codes short to battery

    Are you familiar with the <charm.li> site? Here is a sample of some info on that system available there...

    2014 Jeep Wrangler U0414

    I suggest you start a new thread in the "Transmission" forum. Our primary trans expert usually only checks that forum, in the mornings.

    2014 impala 3.6 transmission hesitates at low speeds

    Are you saying you really don't know how long it has been since the last fluid/filter change? Yeah, doing that may help. Put in some Lube Gard "red", as well. No codes set? Personally, I would use Dex3/Mercon fluid instead of the current Dex6.

    Chassis Noise - Knocking, Only When It Rains

    Want a guess? A rubber suspension bushing that has something that can rotate in it, like a sway-bar or control-arm-pivot bushing

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    Did Charm enable the schematics; should I look for those again now?

    1992 toyota tercel 187,000 miles complete engine rebuild at 137,000 miles, runs good for about 15miles or so then it may or may not have jerky miss.

    If you want my help, you are going to have to give more detail than a simple "no" when I ask several questions. I understand this is OBD1, but it should still set some codes. Are you saying the CEL (Check Engine Light) is working, but does not come on when the engine is operating? Tell me...

    1992 toyota tercel 187,000 miles complete engine rebuild at 137,000 miles, runs good for about 15miles or so then it may or may not have jerky miss.

    No codes set? Is it always "after 10-15 miles", or is it more related to engine temperature that is reached after those 10-15 miles?

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    Looking again at Charm, using 2001 as the MY, I got a bit further. It comes up with icons for three schematic sheets (for power locks); but the icons won't "open". Right-clicking on the icons brings up menu where I can select "source" and in that source-code I can find the specific image IDs...

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    Well, there is some info on that Charm site that may be useful to you, but no schematics that I could find. I tried all door/drive combos. GRC or nickb2, you have schematics?

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    Did you get past my next mistake? It is supposed to be "charm. li", not "chime.li" Is yours 2-door or 4-door, 2WD or 4WD?

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    OK, now that I know you are going to dig into it, I will review the info on that site and see if I can suggest anything.

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    The schematics can probably be found at <chime.li> Again, do you have a meter? Are you going to be doing this as a DIYer? Yeah, my mistake about the battery; I didn't read carefully enough.

    2000, Rav4, 180,000 miles, Car randomly unlocks itself

    Are you saying the electric door-locks will mysteriously unlock when the engine is off and the SLI (starting/lighting/ignition) battery is disconnected??? That is to say... when there is no electrical power available to operate the locks? Yeah, that is a weird one! Do you have an electrical...

    Hello to SaturnFans members

    This is the plea I sent to all SaturnFans users I could contact: I know some of you no longer have Saturns, or have not been active on the SaturnFans site lately, but you may be able to help us out. The SaturnFans (SF) site has been ailing for quite some time now, and now appears to be...

    Ford 4R70W shifting problem

    Well, it has been going on four years now, and the trans is still working fine. I don't know how many miles, I didn't check the odo back in 2020, and it is intermittent now, but guessing 50-75K miles since this truck is in regular commute service.
