My truck has been running perfectly for the last 5 years. No problems, new brakes, new tires.
Over the last 3 years, we took maybe 20 trips over the mountains ) we live in denver), and, on occasion, the car would smoke from the back, but upon stoping, it seemed to actually be smoking from the front.
I took it to a friend, and he said I had some harmless oil and trasnmission fluid leak, and it just looked and smelled bad becaue the leaks were falliing and dripping into the exhaust system, making things seem worse than they really were.
NOW, a bout 3 months later, my car has a HELL of a time gettting out of first gear*1st start, red light, stop sign, and kicks and jerks eventually into first gear, then after first gear, EVERY other automatic shift is perfectlyt fine, highway perfect, then back to the stoplight, same nonsense.
Is this tramsmission, fule injector/.I am horrible with cars, but have no idea how to invest the LEAST to get this old car running right again! 57 year's old and 4 kids, and not many ways to go, but we can't go down to 1 car for at least 5 more years!
Thanks in advance for your care and consideration! We look forward to your help!
have the same problem?
