Sajeev, I enjoy your TTAC contributions very much. I have a 2002 Dodge Ram with a 5.9 liter V8. Starts every time and idles fine initially. But just when it transitions over from the cold start sequence to Normal running it starts to act as if it is gasping for air. (Read More…)

Hey Sajeev!

A question for you and B/B. Especially during cold weather my Trooper gets a ’clunk’ shifting from 1-2 (it’s a 4 speed automatic) and then back down. This coincides with a CEL. It doesn’t happen all the time. There are other times (even during cold) where the truck runs normally – no clunk, no CEL. Checking the CEL code and it indicates all four oxygen sensors (replaced last year); when no CEL no code to read.

My first thoughts were it might be time for ANOTHER transmission. But my brother says no, it has to be electrical since it’s intermittent. Any ideas where to start? (Read More…)

Sajeev–

I can’t believe it’s been two years since I asked you to post a problem with my 1999 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT.  It may have been fixed with just a new gas cap.

    bball40dtw - It was ruined when they did the 2010 refresh to make it all sporty. The peak of non-luxury D3 sedans is the 08-09 Sable/Taurus.

    CoreyDL - They had a P2 S80 clone, they just dumped it after 09. I really think the 08 and 09 Taurus/Sable are good looking cars.

    bball40dtw - It does. But many people don’t like it’s looks. Still, the CPO versions are some of the best used deals out there.

    Nick 2012 - As do I. Based on my mom’s 2011 TDI and a few high-mileage Golf/Jetta/Beetles owned since college by coworkers, VW learned nothing from the B5 Passat.

    VoGo - Ford has a history of keeping old full size cars around for a while. But I suspect that if it weren’t for fleet/PPV sales, Ford would put a fork in this Taurus.
