Hi Scotty, I have a 1999 Dodge Durango (5.2L) with 80,000 miles that will not go into overdrive. The governor solenoid, governor sensor, torque converter, overdrive solenoid, pan gasket and filter have all been replaced but I still don't have overdrive. No codes. Any suggestions on what it could be? Is it possible the 3-4 accumulator spring needs replaced? Thank you in advance.

Hi Scotty , I have a 04 Trailblazer 4.2L , the gauge cluster isn't working at all. It did come on momentarily but only the PRNDL display. Soon as I shut off the engine it hasn't been back on. Any idea? Trans also has a hard time shifting from 2nd to 3rd, once it revs to where it won't pull anymore I lift off the peddle a bit and it shifts to 3rd.

Hey Scotty!

Having some issues with my car and I want to fix it, but I can't find the issue! I've taken it to two different mechanics and gotten nowhere. My car has a very rough idle and issues accelerating - when cold it doesn't want to go, when warm it chokes about once a second. At a stable speed it's ok. I have changed the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter, air filter, egr valve, and a clogged injector. The egr tube and passages are clear, the electrical connections for the injectors are all working, the fuel pump is working, battery and alternator are fine, the head gasket is fine, and it's obd1 and not showing any codes. I sprayed some carb cleaner in to an area I thought there was a vacuum leak and it DID change the RPM, but all of the tubing is fine and nothing is disconnected. Should I keep looking for a vacuum leak? Is it possible the leak is on the injector rail? What else should I check? I'm at a loss. Please help!

Love the channel!

Hi Scotty

I’m looking to buy a new car and I got two cars in mind or maybe you can recommend me something else. Thanks. My priority is to save on fuel, what would be the cheapest one to own when you calculate all the things like rego, fuel, repairs and all that stuff.

So the first one is Mitsubishi Mirage Manual ES 2013 with 45000km 4months rego and 4.7L/100KM and the other one is Toyota Yaris YR Manual 2012 with 150000km 2months rego 5.7L/100KM.

Thanks

Hi Scotty, I have a 1997 Buick Regal Supercharged (3.8l), it turns on and runs fine, but then it gets just past 20mph and shuts off the engine! Pretty consistently right past 20. The engine will start right back up after. No codes, no check engine light. What could be going on?

Hi scotty I was told about something called zx1 and it’s an oil additive and apparently it affects the top layer of metal in your engine and basically makes it frictionless, thoughts on this my friend? Thank you. Also I think you’re one of the best people on you tube your dedication is amazing. Thank you!

Hey Scotty, i have an 01 Nissan Maxima GLE 6 Cylinder Automatic Transmission, over 150000 miles. The ECM went out and it burnt up, the mechanic at nissan told me its because of the electronic engine mounts. Is it smart to get a new ECM, get it reprogramed and disconnect the Engine Mounts? Or just junk it? Thanks!

Hi Scotty! I bought a 2006 Toyota Avalon Limited with 89,000 miles. Runs and shifts great but I was wondering if I should flush the transmission fluid as part of my regular maintenance? I'm not sure if it was done by the previous owner and didn't want to flush it because you warn against flushing a transmission with many miles. But it is a toyota so not sure! Thanks

My 1997 Ford F-150 is throwing a P0174 code for fuel system too lean, there are no vacuum leaks but the O2 sensors are reading 25 mV. Is that a sign to replace them? also my mechanic said that it could be the fuel filter.

Scotty just wondering, why was my request to join your group declined? I'm sure it wasn't you who declined it but it seems kinda odd.

Hey Scotty, Thank you for all the videos. I have learned a lot about fixing my car. Being a Lexus/toyota fan what years and models of lexus would you recommend for reliability. Also, what do you think about the newer Lexus years 2015- Now I was considering the 2015 es 350 but wanted to know whether or not to go with that or an older one.

Hi Scotty, my motorcycle engine goes off easily when I brake, usually happen in a morning. However, when the weather gets hot, it doesn't happen. What causes it?

Any suggestions?
