P0172 is a running rich code. The popping could be that one of your oxygen sensrs has popped out of the exhaust. The nuts that hold the o'2 on rust away. Worth a look.

My a/c went out on my 99 mercury cougar but that was because my a/c compressor went out. My heat was working after that and then it went out too. I thought it was my blower motor so i bought a new one. When i put it in and turned it on, it worked for about 10 seconds and quit working. Then i straight wired my old blower motor to the battery and it came on, so i know it wasn't the problem. I thought maybe it was a relay but i took another relay that was for my windshield wiper and put it where th

I have a 2001 Toyota Camry and the intermittent wiper mode stopped working and when I turn them off, the wipers stop in whatever position they're in, instead of going all the way down.

My '89 S-10 pickup turn signal quit working on left side. Right side works. Bulbs look okay. Flasher makes the sound when I try the left side, but no lights. Instrument panel lights quit also, but don't know if this is related, or if it happened at the same time. I tried a new flasher, but when I put it in the fuse blew. I checked continuity on both old and new flasher; old one had current, new one wouldn't light my tester. Store said it is the right one. I reinstalled the original one because

So i replaced the fuse and sure enough it started working. two weeks later i get in my car after work and they turn signals fail to blink or click. I replaced the fuse again. when i hit the switch it doesnt do anything. So i went to a junkyard and found a switch from a 95 honda accord. i took out my old switch and put that in.

I have an 89 toyota pickup, and the other day the battery light came on and the radio and heater wouldn't work. once i shut it off it wouldn't start anymore.

Can steering while car is stationary in drive cause any sort of damage to a car. I was messing around with my car one day and turned the steering all the way left and all the way right about 15-20 times.

I've got a 1992 Oldesmobile Achieva, with the 2.3 SOHC. The beast has a strange problem: the left turn signal works, but the right does not. At first I thought that this was just a burned out light, so I replaced all the right side lights one by one, and no dice. I switched the left side and right side bulbs, but the left side still worked and the right side still did not. So I began checking continuity on what wires I could, and still nothing. Furthermore, this also affects the right front
