I don't know how many miles you have or the condition of the car, but it sounds like it might just be your TPS (throttle position sensor) might be bad as well as the throttle could be sticking open and just need to be cleaned. Find where the throttle cable goes to the intake and just take some spray injector cleaner or something of that nature to clean the throttle plate. Start with the latter first.

I have an 06 impala and lately as soon as i start my car after an entire night of being parked my car gets to normal operating temperature within 2 minutes of being started. Then the temperature slowly increases to about one hashmark above normal and then slowly decreases when the fan turns on. Also since this has been happening my heater only works when i press on the gas pedal. Please help!!! Thanks!


I suspect it to be a waterpump problem. I have a '06 Impala LT and it is doing the same thing with the exact same symptoms. Do you also notice a puddle of coolant under the engine after you turn the engine off and return? Thats another symptom of a b ... 2006 Chevrolet Impala

I have a 1990 Nissan California Wagon, 1.5L 12Valve 4cyl Gas engine. I'm not too sure if it's the ignition coil, my engine cannot start on one (1) turn of the key, you need two or more or with a blip of the gas pedal and when it finally started it will have a very low RPM at least 2000 RPM and slowly climb to 8000 RPM if you let it be for about 10-20 minutes. If you try to hustle it up by stepping on the gas it would only misfire or stall. I tried checking wires and plugs but all four (4) have p


If the coil is leaking oil, replace it. I'm not saying this will fix the car, but the coil should not leak oil. It's possible a crack in the coil will cause sparks to jump to the coil terminal rather than to the spark plugs. If you want to trouble ... Nissan Sentra

My 2000 ford focus does good, til i change into 2nd gear, then from 2nd through 5th gears, it jerks and barely runs. and when it gets real bad, it causes the clutch to slip, what could be the cause of that? it started doing this a couple days ago, one minute the car is perfectly fine, then all of a sudden, like i said, it'll start jerking really hard, and continuously wants to die, and when it gets worse, the clutch slip very badly.


So you can race the engine in neutral, and no problem with it trying to die? If that's so, I think you need a clutch job. A clutch disc contaminated with oil or grease will cause jerking and slipping. ... Ford Focus

Lawnmower One day I put two much gas in my lawnmower, it filled up and went into the engine a little. The lawnmower does not work now. It starts and runs just for 2 minutes, then slowly off by it self. Does that means the engine is broken? Does that means I should just put it out as trash?


No, it almost sounds like it just needs a tune-up. Change the spark plug, air filter, and change the oil. This shouldn't cost more than $20 for the parts.\015\012\015\012If that hasn't fixed the problem, then the next thing you want to ch ... 2001 Subaru Legacy

I have a 2005 Mini Cooper S and the rear wiper was working fine to-date. One day I turned it on and it stopped about 3/4 of the sweep, chatters slowly to the end and then sweeps back to starting position. Repeats. Not fast enough to keep the window clear. Mini service replaced the rear wiper motor to the tune of $775 and you guessed it, the first rain, doing the SAME thing. I do have the old motor (I asked for it at the last minute). What could be causing it?

Fuel problem I went to start the van one morning. It started. Ran for about 5 minutes then started to chug and then died. Unable to start it again. After sitting for about 20-30 minutes my husband was able to start it - but only for a minute at most. He fiddled with it that next evening. He lowered the fuel tank and got fuel to go back into the fuel line. It started and ran well (so we thought) and he took it to get more gas in the tank (as it was 1/8 full). The next morning I started the

VW 1987 westfalia runs great in dry weather then stalls in rain. I feel some water may be getting into the air intake? When I'm driving and it starts to rain I can drive for about 5 minutes then it slowly looses energy,doesn't cough it just feels like it's getting no air and slowly dies. After we sit on the side of the road for a bit (5-15 minutes) it will start right up and if dry will drive forever but if it rains again it will stall.

My P11 1998 Nissan Primera Si 1600 twincam developed a fault one morning. It wouldn't start on the battery, but would bump start. Long story short: bumped the car to start it, and left it running to charge the battery. Car must have stalled, and the ignition was on for 20 minutes. Now it won't bump start, or start with a new battery. I changed the ht coil and the pick-up coil with new ones, turned the key, and it fired once, then nothing. The check engine light stays on.

Which relay is the fuel pump relay? I have changed the fuel pump and filter. Right after that, It started and ran for about one minute and died. It wouldn't start again until I diconnected the battery. Then it started and ran again for about a minute or so and died. Haven't been able to get it started again. I found a relay under the hood that has a jumper wire, but I don't know which relay it is.


The fuel pump relay switch, if that is what you are looking for, is actually a red button hidden underneath the hood latch. We just had to do the same thing and that will fix it. Just press the red button and you should be fine. ... 1998 Ford Windstar
