  1. Engine brake, then shut off while driving

    Scion xB Performance & Tech Help
    I have a 2011 Scion xB RS 8.0 I was in cruise control around 70 mph when I felt the car slow. It felt like the engine was braking the car because the slowing was not a lack of acceleration, but a forceful slow. I tried to accelerate, but the RPMs were unresponsive, and were jerking around...
  2. Is $2K Enough to Replace My Engine?

    Scion xB Engine, Tech, & Performance
    This week, my 2005 xB rejected an oil filter put on it by Jiffy Lube in April. It was slowly building up pressure until it finally popped off... and my xB stalled in the middle of an intersection as a result! Engine will start, but is burnt up from that lack of oil... klunks and sputters down...

    Scion xB Engine, Tech, & Performance

    Scion xB Engine, Tech, & Performance
    Bought my beautiful 2005 Polar White xB a couple of weeks ago. It is sluggish on acceleration and is generally loud. I've had an xB before, though, so I know this is par for the course. On our 2004 xB we had a few years ago, we took it to a guy who fixed a leak in the hose. I figured it was...
