Two things; 1) check the coolant level of the coolant overflow. Sometimes when the coolant level is low it will trigger the check engine light to come on. 2) If the car is running hot or high check the thermostat. These are the least expensive ways t ... 1993 Chevrolet Lumina APV

Engine light comes on and blinks several times than stays on. Also the #3 cylinder is misfiring. And have no high beams on both lights, even though i checked and changed all bulbs and fuses 2 weeks ago. Also my left turn signal has a mind of its own. Sometimes it comes on and most of the time it doesn't.

1990 c1500/v-8 at times hesitates pulling off. It sometimes wont take the required fuel to throttle body unless its accelerated hard and then sometimes it will still hesitate like the engines cutting out. Sometimes while driving, "service engine" indicator will appear and the problem will start again. At times, it runs great. Ive changed all sensors, egr, even added a new distributor, wires and plugs. No change.( What do I need to do? )

Fuel issues? Car idles sometimes for a few minutes and sometimes for a few seconds without dying. If I rev the engine alot i can drive it for a few minutes before it shuts off, otherwise it dies when i switch gears. I thought this was a fuel issue, so I changed the fuel pump three times, every time I changed it the car would run great for about a week. also changed the fuel filter, used fuel injector cleaner, cleaned my air filters and my mass air flow sensor, and changed the part in the tank th


Since changing the pump makes a difference even for a short time, I believe you are on the right track with that. What you need to do is determine why after changing the pump the problem re-appears. What you need to do is check the fuel pressure at t ... 1989 Chevrolet Camaro

2004 Saturn Ion. At times the engine runs too fast at start (3k rpms) or will sometimes kick into that while driving. Other times while driving in slow/stop and go traffic the rpms drop low to 500 idle becomes rough and engine stalls. At the time of the engine dropping power like lights dim. No codes are being given, nor any dashlights except at stall. The dealer is stumped, we have replaced the software on the car's computer and replaced the throttle sensor. Still no change.

The only thing that you didn't change is the t-stat. If you have an electric fan clutch, the dealership has an updated program that changes the time it comes on and off. I would try the t-stat. You may need to have your vehicle checked for a bad h ... GMC Envoy

Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain? I just bought this BMW and the previous owner did not know whether or not the timing belt was changed. I've heard that if the timing belt goes out it can really screw up your engine. On the other hand, I've also heard that a timing chain (as opposed to a timing belt) is highly unlikely to fail. I'm hoping that this car has a timing chain. Can anyone help me with this matter?


Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 10 ... 1993 BMW 3 Series

It could be a failure of your sending unit. This is screwed into the block just above your starter and next to the oil filter. IF that gets gunked up and/or too leaky, the signal to the ECU will be bad and it will intermittently think you have lost o ... 1998 Nissan Pathfinder

There is an engine knock or loud ticking all the time. It seems to be coming from the right cylinder bank area. When I disconnect the wires to the different coils it changes. there could be more than one source of the knock/tick. Sometimes it sounds like a lifter tick. Other times it almost sounds like a wrist pin knock. Are there any common problems with this engine? I am going to tear into it tomorrow. I am a primarily domestic vehicle tech with 20+ years of experiance.


You are right, most likely a lifter !!Crank shaft bearing (rod) may be, or a broken piston ring will do it also, while you have it apart check these! ... 1999 Acura SLX
