Runs rough took to shop first time said cyl. 6 has a miss fire did a eng. vac on it ran ok for a while then had to take it back said cyl. 1 miss fire did eng. vac on it didnt help i was told it needs new injecters i dont know if this will fix the problem dont want to spend all that money if its not going to fix it what do you think??


If the injectors are dirty, this can induce the misfire they are talking about. It sound like they want to throw parts at it until it is fixed no matter how much it costs you. If they really want to prove their theory, they can use a pressurized syst ... Chevrolet Blazer

I have a 1990 corvette with what seems to be an un fixable problem. I've had 3 shops tell me they don't know what's wrong with it. They tell me , they can't set the timeing corectly due to when you unhook the wire from the computor to the distributor and line the rotor with number 1 top dead center the line on the harmonic balancer is out of site. They all rule out a timeing chain issue and said the distributor was in good condition. The car runs like **** , it misses and spits and sputters.


Replace the harmonic balancer so a mechanic can line it up correctly. If you take it to an expert (I know one here in Southern California) he should be able to set the timing by trial and error\015\012\015\012Here is a replacement:\ ... 1990 Chevrolet Corvette

My engine light has been on for about two weeks now. I diagnosed it as a P0172 problem. I found that this means that one side of my engine is running too rich on the fuel to air ratio. Now that I know, the problem, I'm not sure how to fix it. Can you give me some help?


First check that air filter is not excessively dirty.The fuel injectors on that side may be leaking. You can check this by putting a fuel pressure gauge on the injector fuel rail and turning on the fuel pump for a few seconds to pressuri ... Dodge Intrepid

Transmission problems my transmission fluid leaks. when it is really low, I will reverse and it will seem to be stuck for a few seconds after shifting to drive..it will be stuck in 2nd gear while driving. I constantly have to add fluid like once a week and I need to know what can be wrong so I can tell if I should get it fixed or find something new. when the fluid is in the car it runs fine, no hard shifting or anything, when the fluid is low there is very hard shifting and I understand because


Well, the car is 20 years running on the road, one can expect gaskets and seals to start leaking. If you stop the leak and keep it full, you may be alright. But running low fluid for very long will definitely damage the transmission, so do get it f ... 1992 Plymouth Voyager

It sounds like the head gasket is blown or the head cracked. These cars are known for the damage to the engine from overheating. Check the oil dipstick and see if it looks milky. If so then there is water in the oil and the gasket or the ... 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

POWER LIGHT The check engine light came on in my 2000 Kia Sportage. It just went over 100,000 miles so I thought it might be a sensor/reading problem, since it went off a day or so later & continues to run GREAT. Yesterday, while on a 3 hour trip, the check engine light again came on & the POWER light came on. I have never had this light come on before, ever. Did not even know it was in the panel. We got to our motel & I parked it. Can anyone tell me what this means & what I need to do?


There is a button on the right side of the dash if your looking at the steering wheel.\015\012Push the button again and should turn off the power light.\015\012\015\012This is an option for climbing hills or when you need a little m ... 2000 Kia Sportage

You may need a new battery cable there is a fuseable link in the cable itself that will need to be replace when burnt. I would ohm the cable out and see if that is the case. ... Dodge Ram 150

I recently started experiencing electrical problems with my Chevy Prizm (2001). Basically, one morning, I attempted to start it up, and then let it run for a couple of minutes. When I lowered the parking brake, that prompted the daylight lights to come on, immediately killing the RPM and shutting the car off. I took it to a mechanic, who obviously didn't know what he was doing. He managed to fix this issue by replacing a module (didn't tell me what he replaced). Then something strange; the headl


This just happened to my Prizm. We found a short in a ground connector, behind the driver's side kick panel. We cut the grounds and soldered them together. That fixed the engine dying issue, but the headlights won't go off. The DRL is apparently ... 2001 Chevrolet Prizm

Good day. I drive a 2007 City Golf, I recently took my car in for its service. When i received the car back the radio was saying SAFE?? What does this mean? I Bought the car at a second hand car dealer and did not receive all the books the car comes with? How can I obtain a code to go out of this SAFE on my radio? Beeing a lady I do not know much about these problems. If i take it back to the place it was serviced they tell me I have to pay them like R700.00 to have the radio fixed? ? ? ? ? ?


The radio anti theft system is operated when,for any reason, the power is turned off/disconnected,(safe mode)in some markets,the dealers do not keep the factory code (0000) OR the code inputed by the owner...SO, if anybody turns the power off(discon ... 2007 Volkswagen Golf

It seems that the hose coming form the radiator to the rear heating unit has eroded away. I have antifreeze leaking everywhere and need to know how to fix it.

I suggest getting a Haynes repair guide for that model at your parts store. It will show you the major connections and how to get at them. You can compare what you see to what the book shows as the major components and then decide what to do. ... 1995 Dodge Caravan

I was told by a Lexus Dealer that I have a cam seal leak and a rear main seal leak and they would have to pull the trans out to fix the rear main problem. Cost to fix both to run about $2,040 which I don't have at this time. How serious are these leaks and can they cause engine problems? Which problem is more important than the other if I were to get one fixed now and one fixed later? Also, my check engine light is on and trac off light. What does trac off mean


These leaks are minor as long as you dont let it get down more than a half pint. When driving it can blow all over the undercarriage and maybe get on on electrical connectors and cause issues but thats far fetched. Slim chance. Can end up smelling if ... 1998 Lexus ES 300

Engine light has been on for the past 3 years. The car runs fine!! I have fixed numerous sensors as directed by different mechanics in hopes of fixing the problem. The latest mechanic tells me that the cam sensor needs to be replaced. Problem with that is that I replaced the cam sensor last year! Another tells me it is the catalytic converter. This has been going on forever, but I need a sticker this month and need to get rid of the stupid light.


The only way to turn off this light is with an obd2 code scanner ... 1996 Ford Taurus

2001 PT cruiser runs well then will die - will restart later and run for 2 blocks or for rest of the day or days then die again. Cam replaced as code indicated a problem but not fixed. Any ideas? Mechanic was not confident of this fixing the problem and he was correct. He and I keep driving it in the area of the shop but it does not reoccur with him when I am near the shop. I know it will stop again later as it has been towed 3 times now.

Had a similar problem last week, code pointed to the oxygen sensors. Replaced both and it ran great for a week. What shall I do?
