Been a while since I've been here with questions. :)
My sister lives out in Pine, CO, about an hour out of Denver. She's
running a 2004 2.7T AllRoad automatic. She loves this car, but there've
been some niggles lately.
It's started stalling on the highway. First time it stalled she'd been
driving for about 15 minutes. Second time it was 45 minutes. No
My immediate thought w.r.t the stalling is faulty fuel pump, but there's
so much that could be causing it (O2 sensors, crank/cam sensors, blocked
cats, DBW faulty, MAF faulty, etc, etc, etc). I've got no clues about
these 2.7T engines.
About a month or so ago she reported some transmission noise. Stopped,
transmission in drive, there's some clicking noise going on. Only
evident when parked up next to a wall, like in a drive-thru. Put into
park and it goes away.
Anyone near Denver or Pine who might have some OBD-II diagnostic tools
or might be willing to help track these faults down? Thought pulling the
error codes might help.
Or any recommendations for a reputable shop that won't charge her an arm
and a leg for some diagnostics?
