I have a chevrolet silverado 1999. Started acting up a 2 weeks ago and been trying to fix it since. got all these codes from a modis; maf circuit out of range, maf circuit signal low, o2 signal low bank 1 sensor 2, o2 heater circuit bank 2 sensor 1, engine misfire detected.

I have a 1997 Volkswagen Jetta. It will not start. Cranks over fine. Getting fuel and spark and compression is good. Seems to want to fire as soon as I stop cranking. At other times I get a large amount of backfiring. It was running a little rough, but I drove it to where is parked now. The next day it will not start. New cap and rotor and plugs. Replace distributor and coil. I am new to Volkswagen, and don't know where to go from here.

My 2003 nissan sentra has trouble starting. It usually starts and dosen't die by the second or third try. The speedometer will jump from 0 to 1 or 0 to 2 when I am driving and then cut off. Or sometimes the speedometer will jump up and down as the car jerks. When I press on the gas my car makes a coughing sound. I am afraid my car is on the verge of breaking. What do I do?

I have a 92 Tracker, almost trouble free, but lately it won't always start. when it doesn't start I can hear a low clicking noise from around the fuse box kinda like a relay switch or something. I found the unit that was emitting the noise, near the fuse box.It is a little black almost square box (about 1"x1.5"x1.25") and seems to be the termination point of a 4-post wire harness. Could that be my problem? and if so what is it called?


Most likely what your describing is a Starter Relay. Typically it's a 4 point connector. The odds are the Starter itself maybe the problem. I would pull the starter out and have the auto-part store bench test it. Normally, the solenoid ... 1992 Geo Tracker

My 2002 Jetta TDI.... lately is not starting and I have to jump my vech to start. About 3 months ago my car my started acting kinda funny.

Here's how the problem started every once in a while, once or twice every couple of weeks my car wouldn't start... it didn't have enough juice to turn the engine over.

My 1994 Volkswagen Jetta won?t turn over. It sat for the winter in Canada, and I tried to start it last weekend. Initially it turned over but didn?t start (most likely due to the fact that I only had ¼ tank of gas when I parked it, and condensation in the tank formed, diluting the gas) Instead of getting new gas, I kept trying to start it since it was slowly starting to sound more promising. All of a sudden, it stopped turning over. Battery is fine, (I tried to boost it same problem) I can hear
