      Code U0101 = lost communication with TCM (transmission control module).

      There are several possibilities for the cause of this fault code. Start with the simple and easily determined; check the TCM wiring and connections to and from the control module mounted just underneath the instrument panel.
      Be sure these are properly connected and no wiring damage, no chafing or holes in the insulation. Check and clean all connectors to the transmission, check the ground at the transmission control module and the connections to it. Something in the wiring is not letting the signal from the transmission control module display it's results to the master electronic control module (ECM). It's likely a fault in the wiring harness somewhere between the transmission and the TCM, or the TCM and the ECM.

    Rubbing sound from the front of the car. When I get up to 20 mph and on I hear a rubbing grinding sound..
    it makes that sound when th car is moving.. When it idles I don't hear anything.. We check the passenger side wheel bearing and it wasn't that. Its very frustrating..

      Check to make sure clearance between fender and tire is sufficient. Is this a front wheel drive vehicle? Also check to see if brake pad linings aren't completely worn down. If the lining has worn away, the metal from the pad backing will contact the metal rotor surface. Usually this is obvious if you observe the condition of the rotor. Deep grooves usually indicates this condition. If the vehicle is front wheel drive, have the cv joints checked out.

    Anyone have any info on a 2006 5.9 litre cummins 3500 4x4 automatic transmission, that is throwing code P2121?
    While driving the accelerator occasionally loses action. Believe this has been called dead pedal, and also is not shifting properly...

      Replace the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor. Probability here is greater than 90%.

    Won't go into park or neutral and won't start up right away.
    When car is put into park or neutral the light box around the selected gear disappears. If we shut it off it stays in P but will not start up. However if car is left sitting anywhere from minutes to hours the box will reappear and car will start as long as we let it ...

      What kind of fluid is leaking. Antifreeze, power steering or transmission fluid. There are small rubber lines that connect to the radiator. Those are cooling lines for transmission fluid. It is common for the rubber lines to swell up and start leaking. If your transmission fluid level is low it will cause slipping. Tighten the cooler line hose clamps or replace the hoses and clamps. Make sure to check the trans fluid level and top off if needed. The trans dipstick will specify which fluid type and procedure to use. Or check your owners manual.

    Car stalls and shuts off when I come to a stop
    Randomly when I am stopped at a red light or stop sign, my car will either jerk forward while my foot is on the brake, or it will completely shut off. It restarts with no issues and will drive for days/weeks until it decides to do it again.

      You may have a loose gas cap. Sometimes that triggers the check engine light. If not go to Autozone for a free diagnosis, they can pull the code up for you.

      I'm sorry this was for a different question.
      Could be either a vacuum leak, or it could be the IAC valve (idle air control). Do the RPM's fluctuate?

      Is there a check engine light? If not could be a bad fuel pump. fuel filter, or a vacuum leak.

    What is wrong if driving on highway & warning light comes on and my speed suddenly goes from 70 to 45.
    half hour later it is fine and light is out.

      No clue. Plug in a code reader and see what fault code set in memory.

    What else can leak besides pinion seal and rear cover on the rear end?
    I know my pinion seal is leaking. I added some gear oil and I'm not sure if there is a leak on one side where the axle exits and goes to the wheels. Can you have a leak there? If so is it a major thing? Thanks
     
    • HouseCallAuto

      Yes you can have a bad axle seal there and leak oil into the brakes. major thing, well if this is presented to the professional shop the job will *likely* also consist of a major brake job at the same time. Could have a bill of more than 3 to 4 hundred depending on what parts. New drums would put you at near 1000 if included with wheel cylinders and shoes and hardware.
