I have a 2003 Ford Taurus SEL, the check engine light is on and when I had them run the codes they said it was running "lean" on both banks. What could cause this? Some have said it could be the O2 sensor or a fuel pump. The car only has 49,000 miles on it and runs fine. Gas mileage is down a little but overall it runs smooth. I cant get an inspection sticker until the check engine light is taken care of. Any help would be very appreciated.

If i turn truck off and restart it, it will run okay for a few blocks, then back to the hesitation

I have a 1986 4wd p.u efi that that i got from relatives who put an engine in thier selfs the motor runs alittle rough ive changed the fuel filter checked plug wires distribter cap rotor put some fuel additive in it still nothing and also has a little noise when you accelarte wondering if the timing is off alittle tryed turning the distribter alittle bit makes it run alittle faster but still runs rough how do you check the timing and if needed set it


Well timing can be check with a simple timimg lite it should be around 10' of advance, but for running a little rough those engines are notorius for that,these also have a timing chain instead of a belt, so jumping rarely happens, make sure you are u ... 1986 Toyota Pickup 4WD

I have a 2007 Saturn ION, been wonderful so far, I have a little over 90,000 mi on it, now my "check engine" light appears then disappears, I'm getting the p0300 error, something about it misfiring, It idles poorly and when the "check engine" light is lit up, it tends to "kick" as I accelerate, but seems to run well when the "engine" light is NOT lit up, any "idears"


I've had the same problem before. Autozone had a code reader and said that it was/had misfired on cylinder #3, which will trigger the check engine light. Start with the cheapest and easiest fix first, install new spark plugs. If that works, great! ... 2007 Saturn ION-2 Quad Coupe

I have a Can OBD2 scan tool my check engine light came on saw it PO171 system too lean bank #1 checked engine did not find anything loose or whatever so I cleared the light it came back on in two days same thing is this a oxgen sensor or where do i go from here. the engine is running a little rough


The codes I hear about most from Ford owners are P0171 or P0174; Fuel system lean, Bank 1 or 2. Now these codes indicate the engine is not getting enough fuel. This can be due to several factors, a bad Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS), vacuum leak ... Ford Explorer Sport

My '03 Ford Explorer has only 77,000 mi. on it. check engine light came on so I took it in and the mechanic said to get a tune up, which I did. Check engine light remains on and it runs a little rough,( mostly when at a stop light or when it idles) . SO we took it to the Ford dealer. they ran a bunch of tests and said they need to pull the engine and replace all the piston rings. Cost would be about $3,000.00.also , it is sucking gas like crazy. Any ideas out there? 3 mechanics says its "safe" t


Is it blowing blue smoke out the exhuast pipe or lose of compression? Then that means you have bad rings. What where the codes that they got out of the computer? Sounds like the dealer is trying to rip you off unless you never did oil changes to the ... 2003 Ford Explorer

When braking the engine revs reduce so far that the engine cuts out, it starts with a little difficulty but runs a little unevenly, revs dipping. It is possible to drive and behaves itself at speed but again when coming to rest the engine will either dip it's revs or cut out. Checked plugs, ht leasd, coil etc any clues


Sounds like an air filter cloged or a vacume leak. Check your air filter, and look at all the small hoses for rot or a break in them. Pulling in too much air will cause this also, ie vacume leak.  ... 1993 Chevrolet Astro

95 honda accord dx with 2.2 non vtec won't stay running. Checked the ignition switch and main fuel relay. Changed fuel pump and filter.

2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5SL car bought used, overheats while running in parking lot or extended slow driving <5mph. Has done it three times. No overheating or symptoms while driving at speed. Fuses seem to be okay. Fans are simply not coming on when needed and there is no check engine light when it happens. Checked underhood fan fuse block with meter and both fan fuses are good (little green block with ignition and two fan fuseable links encased) I can't say that I've ever heard the fans run on


Something that you can check is to unplug the fans. There should be a connector that unplugs on each fan. Check for DC voltage on both fans. One fan should come on when you run the A/C and the other fan should come on when the car gets over 190 degre ... 2006 Nissan Maxima

Ford Taurus 1998 3.0 engine v6 How do I check the wiring that plugs into the alternator? The plug has 3 wires. I do not know what they do so not sure if when checking if engine needs to be running or off or what is ground and what is power. I do know the main red wire going to alternator has power. #1(orange & gray stripe? This wire is a little heavier gage than the other 2) #2(White with black stripe this wire loops back into the alternator with a plug) #3(green with black stri


Testing the amperage output of the alternator is good for measuring the amount (not the level) of voltage the alternator can produce. This test can be tricky because if the alternator is weak it can still show it as producing amperage. Which is good, ... Ford Taurus

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4. The check engine light came on a little bit ago, and ever since then it's had problems shifting out of first gear. I'll be running 4000 rpm for miles before it shifts. The transmission fluid is full, and it doesn't ever overheat even though it's running so high. I've taken it to several shops, had diagnostics ran, and every shop says something different. We replaced the speed sensor and that helped a little but it still doesn't work properly.


It is most likley the throttle position sensor"mine wouldn't shift into 5th gear because of it" if it bad or worn out it not sending the correct signal to the computer telling the transmission to shift out. before you get lied to by the auto parts st ... 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 1998 Monte Carlo, LS, 3.1L. Having a little charging system issue. The battery appears to be dead (does not start engine). So, I jump the battery with a portable jumpstart device (from Costco and works perfectly everytime). But, I can run for quite a distance and as soon as I turn off the engine and immediately go to start back up.. same thing.. no juice. Now, I check the voltage on battery, not running, and it reads around 10-11 volts.. same as with my F350(and no problem in start

I have had the alternator check and the battery they are both working great.ON this i have replaces the engine, water pump, belts, and timing.

My 2001 Ford Expedition started making a clicking/knocking sound from the 5.4L engine, u can really only hear on driver side. I have never had any oil problems, no oil leaks, etc. I checked for any loose items...nothing found. When the vehicle is driven the sound gets a little louder when accelerating. I suspect that a rod may be bad but the engine runs great, good power still, etc. The vehicle has 134K miles on it. Are there any checks I can perform to determine what may be the problem? It does
