I have a 2002 Mercury Sable w/ 3.0L DOHC. The Fuel Cap light keeps on, yesterday the engine started idleing rough, today it acts like a stuck throttle until the car is stoped and then it acts like it wants to die.


You have a vacuum leak some where. Engine uses vacuum to burn gas vapors in gas tank. This is the EVAP SYSTEM. This system can detect a small leak or large leak. (gas cap light.) But there are also other items on the car that use vacuum to do work. ... Mercury Sable

I have a 1997 nissan sentra with 1.6 litter engine. It has 171000 miles. The other day I run my car very low on fuel and went around a sharp curve (345 degrees) when I came out of the curve the car acted like it run out of fuel.( the engine was running but would not respond to me pressing the gas pedel.

Escort 1 6 zetec engine revs high when stationary and tries to run away when driving. Have checked the throttle linkage, and all is moving as it should be. If the throttle is blipped it acts as if it has got a couple of seconds time lag before engine responds to throttle blip.

I think the problem is the idle\\air control module if you have one take it out and clean it. the idle module works when your vehicle is idleing. A clogged throttle body or intake would cause the module to compensate for the problem by allowing air ... 1997 Ford Escort

Reving High I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent. I fixed the throttle position Sensor in Sept 08. For a month now, my check engine light has come on and off. When I'm driving, especially in neutral and first gear (as my car is a standard), it reves sometimes up to 3 RPM When I brought in the garage over the Holidays, they said it was fine. nothing wrong and the light went off by then. It came on again last week. I had a friend who scanned it with that machine and it read Throttle Position Sensor. I bro

Idling Problems I have a 1998 Eclipse GS-T. The other night I drove the car without problems and parked it for about 6 hours. When I went to turn the car on, it acted like the battery was dead. We got a jump, the car started, and I started driving, but every time I took my foot off the gas it wanted to stall out. I ended up driving it home reving the engine the whole time. My husband had the aternator/voltage regulator checked, it was fine. My battery tested dead however, so we replaced it. Addi


Besides the throttle positioning sensor, the crankshaft sensor, the O2 sensor, and a bad or clogged EGR valve will cause this problem. These sensors can have an intermittent problem without producing a code or causing the ch ... 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Blower malfunctioning I have a 2001 BMW 325 CI. Whenever I have the blower on for the heat, vent, or A/C, the blower goes from low to high and back seemingly at will. More often than not, it sticks on high. Also, whenever I turn the blower completely off before I turn the car off, the blower is always back on and stuck on high when I start the engine again. Is that normal? I would like to fix it, what part might I need? I ran codes on it, but it couldn't read whatever was going on. Blower motor?

I have a 2002 Saturn Vue, 2.2L. We replaced the engine, and the car has been running fine for the past 2 weeks. We got up this morning, started the car, let it warm up, ran a few errands, had no issues at all. Stopped at the last store of the day, when we came out, go into the car, it wouldnt start. It doesnt even act like it wants to start! It makes a clicking noise at the fuse box, and the throttle seems to be opening and closing, but nothing else! What is the problem!??????


Turn on the headlights and see if they are nice and bright or dim. If the lights are dim, there is probably a connection issue so check the battery connections to make sure that they are not corroded, clean, and tight. Since an engine was just put ... 2002 Saturn VUE

I just bought this car a week ago. I had to have the fuel pump replaced the next day and the mechanic said they also replaced the plugs. On the way home my engine light came on again. Normally it drives fine, 3 times now when I stop at a light or stop sign it jerks and acts like I'm reving it up when I'm not. Once I push the gas and go again it acts fine. Could this be the transmission or something else?


It's probably not your transmission, but it could be a problem with you IAC (idle air control) which is common on that year and model. The IAC cost around 105 dollars, it is an electronic piece that regulates how much air comes into your engine. ... 2001 Ford Windstar

Throttle hesitation when I accelerate from an idle the engine hesitates, the farther I push the gas pedal, the more the hesitation. If I take it easy and keep the rpm's up a bit there is no problem and the engine runs smooth as it should. Problem is only acceleration from an idle or very low rpm's. If it had a carburator I would think accelerator pump. acts just like older car I had with carburator problems.


Is the check engine light on, and have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ?The most common cause of that problem is a faulty Throttle Position Sensor but it should set a code in the computer. ... 2000 Honda CR-V

I have a 88 ford taurus.... and recently i've enountered a problem that i need help trouble shooting with.. i was driving on the high way and when i pulled off the off ramp and stoped at the light .. the engine began to go faint on me like it was running out of gas.. it did not fail to run until after the light turned green. i hit my gas peddle and the car acted like it ran out of gas.. it shut down... i could manage to restart it at that point, park it, then restart it again after 15 minutes..


It sounds like there is a good chance that either your fuel filter is getting clogged or your fuel pump might be worn or faulty. The first thing to do is check the fuel pressure. If it is OK then you should check to see if it has spark. I ... 1988 Ford Taurus

Ok here we go. This is a good brain teaser for the Chrysler engineering and technicians. I own a 2001 Chrysler LHS that has been a decent car if you like to fix stuff, all the time. Recently my wife heard a knock coming from the engine. My friend is a tech, he came over and assured me I was hurting (money). After tearing into it I was stupid and did not check the EGR system. the sensor stuck inside the throttle body tried to pull away and striped the thread on the plunger. It moved so no codes w

My car is a 93 oldsmobile cutlass supreme and has a new fuel pump, new fuel filter, new ignition module and just had to replace the turnsignal flasher fuse and turnsignal part in the steering column. After all that in the last year all of the sudden my car is acting like it has bad gas or something is not firing right. It idles really high in park then seems to have a hard time getting up to speed until I get over 50mph. The check engine light is not on and it has not died while stopped (yet)

Have a 07 minni and the engine light came on. Car began stalling out going down road. The temperature light had came on a couple times as well before the engine light. Took car to shop and they replaced mass air flow sensor and filters. By the time I got 30 minutes to home the engine light was on again and the car was stalling out when you press the gas. Also when the car is idle it is reving up and down. Making the worst noise like it is dying and then coming back. Like the engine is louder
