2002 1.6L GOLF, EPC LIGHT ON, POWER LOSS An EPC light will appear on the dash randomly whilst driving at a casual pace. Once it is on there is a noticeable loss in power and it stays this way until the engine is turned off, however the EPC light will not always reset straight away after I turn the engine on and off. During this EPC mode, it takes more revs to gain speed and struggles getting up slight inclines on the road. When the EPC light is off the car drives great. note: if the battery i

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, with a 5.9 v8 engine, with 80k miles. The main issue is when even I turn on the AC or the defrost the engine light goes on and the engine rpm get erratic. It got to the point when the truck shut down completely. When holding the troddle at 2000RPM it will make a instant drop to 1000 Rpm's. I had the AC charged and the AC works fine. The other issue is the engine seems to runs cool. Around 150 degrees, the heat takes a long time to warm up and I wonder

They have wired it up wrong, the fans are controlled by a water temperature sensor switch, they have wired it direct to a live feed from the ignition, when the engine is cold cooling fans are not needed in fact having a fan on will increase the time ... 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

When I start my 1999 Ford Expedition, it turns over great. When I take my foot off of the gas it dies. It is a 4.5 L engine and has been a wonderful vehicle. It is getting fuel to the engine, so it doesn't appear to be the fuel pump and the exhaust fumes are horrible after a few attempts at keeping it running.


Did you tune up the truck, check fuel rails. I would also measure resistance across all fuel injectors, it only takes one to be bad and cause this. ... 1999 Ford Expedition

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4, straight 6 engine with a manual transmission. I was turning left tonight and it sounded like something dropped off my car and then it made a horrible noise, almost like the sound your car would make when the CV Joints need replaced, and now my Jeep won't go into 5th gear or reverse. Is there a way to see if it is just the linkage or if it is something internal without having to taqke it to a mechanic? I just don't want to take it in and be told it is som

My car hesitates to go when I stop then it kinda kicks and takes off. The check engine light comes on then turns off. Just wondering what the problem could be. I was first told it was the fuel filter we changed that and problem still accures. The mechanic thinks maybe throttle sensor or o2 sensor and another said spark plugs. Just trying to figure out which way to go.


Depending on mileage...I would go with the spark plugs...AND spark plug wires first...these are a wear item, and should be replaced per mileage...The other sensors can be checked for free at your local parts store..(Diagnostic)_ .Hope this helps. ... Oldsmobile 88

My 2004 nissan quest is taking off in over drive. It takes a long time to get up to speed but if you stop the van and put it into park and turn off the engine then turn it back on some times it will then operate normally. However, some times when it acts up and you turn off the engine it has a hard time starting back up.

I have a 1996 s10 with an automatic trans problem. Yesterday while driving up an incline the engine raced and no power to the wheels. I checked the fluid level and it was a little low but should have been ok. I can take off in 2nd but when it shifts to 3rd breaks loose. If I stop and turn off the engine for about 10 secs I can take off in 2nd again but only for a 1/4 mile the no power to the wheels again. Turning off the engine then on again I can go for another little bit. What can it be?

It takes three plus times turning the key to start before the starter turns the engine over. The engine starter clicks each time the key is turned to start but does not turn the engine over until the 3rd time. Cleaned the battery terminals, checked all wiring connection(s, unplugged and plugged fuse(s)that are related to ignition wiring harness. Battery has 13.8 volts while idling, lights are bright, etc.. Car will start on the 3rd time with the headlights on.

Why does it take 3-4 turns of the key to start my car? the first time I turn it the engine turns over normal. The 2nd time it tries to start. The 3rd time it starts but dies instantly. Then it will start & after I've been driving and turn it off, it will start back up on the first turn. But the longer I let it sit the more times it takes to start.

The check engine light keeps turning on after I have the oxygen sensor replaced. I've had the sensor replaced 3 times as the light keeps turning on and the shop keeps telling me that that's the only thing that is coming up. I need to get a smog check by then of this month in order to pay my tags but the check engine keeps turning on. After I leave the shop they instruct me to drive the car for 20-25 miles before taking it in for the smog check but the light turns on before I reach the 20 mi
