1995 nissan maxima. When starting the car I have to count to 3 then it turns over and makes a screeching noise for 1 or 2 min (especially when it's cold). The last time i was at the shop they said it may be 2 of the belts inside.When the car is on and while driving, it shakes. When I put the heat on it smelled like gas, right now it is not doing it ( for 4 days now). Also, my check engine light is on.


The screeching noise may be your belts beeing loose or cracked and dry. the fact that the check engine light is on and the car smells like gas may mean that you are not firing on all 6 cylinders and thats why it shakes and also you are just dumping ... 1995 Nissan Maxima

Chinese scooter I know its not a car but there is not a catergory for scooters.Yes I know Chinese!! Going down the road, slow, maybe 20mph. I hear like a small ting ting almost like back fire. It stopped when I stopped. Then on the main highway up to 45 mph it felt as though it was struggling to get gas then bam, it felt as though the "belt " had broke. No power could not get it started. It reminded me of years ago when a timing belt had gone in in my car. Any ideas. I am waitng for the place th


Hey Mj, you seem to know your stuff--it sounds like the drive belt broke. You can get a repair manual on amazon for approx. $15 plus shipping. It would be a great help w/ pictures and how to maintain and fix the scooter. But if you're going to dum ... 2007 Suzuki XL-7

Daughter's 1999 Jetta; smelled burnt rubber when leaving work last week. Car ran fine. Yesterday, started squealing (sounded like belt slipping) when started. Later in day, she turned car off and sat with ac on-battery went dead, also car ran out of gas at same time. Car jumped, gas added-went to drive and has no power steering. Before I call tow truck, could it (hopefully) be lack of transmission fluid?


It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery ch ... 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

Timing i have a 2002 honda passport, i changed my water pumpand timing belt. well the car started right up and idles fine. but when i try to give it gas it seems theirs like a load on it or something not letting it accellllllerate. and its back firing throught the intake. I thaought it was out of time by a tooth. so i tookit in to a shop. they redid the timing belt but it had no change on any thing. and it getting multiple mis fire codes on the 2 and 4 cylender. would a bent valve cause these is


Did the shop say the belt was on wrong? I suspect it was, and possibly still is. They may not have known where the original position was and did it wrong again as Honda reference marks can be a little vague. If the belt was out enough to make the ... 1995 Honda Passport

The check engine light comes on and off on my 06 stratus. the first time it came on was about 2 months ago. I took it to the shop and they said I had steped on the gas to hard and had forced the vacuum, but that the car did not have any problems. The light was off. After 2 months, on a 6 hour trip, the light came back on and this time the car started to shake. at first it shook every 20 mins or so, after a while it was like every 5 mins. The next morning i started the car, check engine light was

Timing how do I know if the timing is to high or low on a 1992 Toyota Camry V6? the car was running at one point. then I put 10 bucks in gas in it and i didn't go 2 minutes and you know was kinda sputtering like and quit and wouldn't start back up. Fire. Well I put two pieces on it. I put a piece that consists of something to do with the timing and it starts up you just got to keep your foot on the gas cause if you let it off then it goes dead???? What do you think


There can be several reasons for the lousy idling. if you have fuel injection you have a Tps (throttle positon sensor) this controls the idle. you could have a weak fuel pump. it will start fine ,but the system will lose it's prime. as far as timing ... 1992 Toyota Camry V6

Friday it sputtered and shut off 2 times the thrid time I started it I gave it some gas and it drove for a few feet then started sputtering and smoking from the right side of the engine. I pulled over turned it off popped the hood the smoke was coming from the bottom corner near where all the pulleys and belts are. No worn belts nothing wrong there but it smells like burning rubber. I started the car it made this whining sound for about a minute then stopped and drove fine. Drives fine now but e


Have the water pump checked. The bearing maybe seizing up causing the pulley to jam and smoke up the belt. Also as the motor got hot from pump not spinning, may have caused the motor to shut down as an overheating precatuion. ... 1998 Plymouth Voyager

The 1995 camry died after about a day of starting to miss, then stalling at idle, and apparently after is was warmed up. When I went back to get the car towed it started. At this time I have dissamebled the throttle body and cleaned it out, re assmemled it, hoping that was the fix. THe car acts like it wants to start, but will not actually catch. I can smell unburned gas fumes, so I am reasonably certain it is getting gas. What else should I check?

I recently bought a 1993 Lexus SC 400 a month ago. The car ran fine. Then it started running rough. At start up it still runs fine. Once it reaches operating temperature the engine idle fluctuates and when put into park or neutral the rpm jumps up. At the same time black exhaust come out and smells like raw fuel. When you step on the gas pedal the engine bogs down and wants to stall. At this point, if you put it in gear the car stalls. After the car sits for a while, it starts up and runs fine u


Well as to what you'r describing above, if there is indeed black smoke and raw fuel smell then you vehicle is running rich. That means that insead of having the perfect 14.7 mixture of fuel and air, your engine is burning more fuel then air. The prob ... 1992 Lexus Sc 400

We took our perfect running 2000 VW Jetta TDI to a local mechanic for a timing belt change, which we knew it was due for. Now, after the belt change, the car will suddenly quit running and acts like it has no power. It will usually start back up, but this happens intermittently and it doesn't make sense. No matter if you give it gas or not, it just stops. Any suggestions?


When I took my 2000 VW Jetta VR6 into the shop to get something fixed, I mentioned I wanted my timing belt replaced as well (It was due.), the mechanic said that they don't have a belt, and that the have a chain on them, and they should last the life ... 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

I recently purchased a used 03 cadillac cts with 90k miles. It was running fine, smooth idle, even with the AC turned on. Then I had the timing belt and water pump replaced. When I got the car back, I was at a light with the AC on and it felt like the car was going to turn off. The rpms started bouncing from 600 to 700. Very rough idle, to the point you can feel it in the seat and shifter. Same problem in park and neutral. I have had it to two cadillac dealerships in NC, and neither can figure i


It sounds like you may have bad plugs or wires However if they changed the timing chain I would be very concerned that it is doing what your saying, I would suggest you take it to an independent shop that is ASE certified and has the scanners t ... 2003 Cadillac CTS

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent. Recently while i was driving i noticed that my car was acting funny. It just stopped out of nowhere. When i tried to start it up it was shaking a lot when i tried to put my car in reverse and back up it just went off. The clutch pedal was very loose. It felt as if a belt or something was loose. I also smelt a burnt smell like rubber burning or something of that nature. I have had my coil packs changed out by the dealer a couple of weeks ago so i know it isnt that.

Smells like gas only on inside of car. u can smell it more when you crack the windows. car shakes like it needs tune up and when you push on the gas but i already did tune up and gas filter


Fix the smell first, as you are a fire/explosion hazard. Look for wet spots, but something, somewhere is leaking. Inspect the evaporative recovery system and all hoses. When this is resolved, look after the rough running on acceleration. ... 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7

I have a 2005 kia optima and had the timing belt and the balancer belt change at the same time in may/11. when I got it back from the shop there was a slight vibration in the engine, I took it back to the shop and the rechecked the timing and balancer and found that there was no problem with the timing in either belt according to the timing marks. The problem is the vibration has got much worse , to the point that you can see the steering wheel shake when you put in gear at idle speed. Also ther

Hi, 2002 dodge Dakota, 4.7l, got home from work and shut off. 10 minutes later, went to start and made a noise like a car makes when you try and start car when it is already started, then idle was rough, shut off and had strong smell of gas in exhaust. Thought to be timing chain had jumped, others said to change the cam and crank position sensors. Changed them and still running rough, engine vibrates bad if I can get it to start at all. Still have gas smell in exhaust. Do the timing chains jump


The chain could jump a tooth or two, but normally a chain or gear breaks. You could pull the spark plugs and check compression to find out.It sounds like one or two injectors may have failed allowing liquid gas to flow into the cylinders. ... Dodge Cars & Trucks

1998 Contour, When it is cold it runs fine. But when it warms up it idles very rough at low RPM. It dies sometimes when at a stop light or even going around corners. When it is acting up like this it smells very bad. I can park the car and wait an hour or so and it will run fine until it warms back up. I have also noticed my temp guage is not working now. I do not believe it is overheating as my fans are running correctly. Replaced the plugs, wires, timing belt, tensioner, pulleys, water pump.


I notice that you replaced the water pump,Did the car over heat at any time, If it did end you didn,t stop right away when it first happen, It can do real serious damage to the engine, That will give the syptons you are describeing,If you notice that ... 1998 Ford Contour

I have a 2002 chrysler 300. I just had a water pump & timing belt replaced as well as an oil change and 02 sensor replaced (diagnostic pointed to this). After all the work my car would run rough as if it were running out of gas on an idle or low rpm. I took it to a dealership and they said i needed an 02 sensor that was NOT after market, a Mopar one which I had them install as a software upgrade. It lasted for 34 miles and now the engine light is back on again! Help! Single mom who has just sunk


There is a possiblity another 02 sensor went. This is not a trial and error thing. Stuff happens. I suspect that the timing belt was replaced without lining up the cam gears because they either did not have the tool to hold them while the old belt wa ... 2003 Chrysler 300M
