I have a 2004 Stratus. We just recently changed the thermostat in it and when we went to start it back up it would start and then die. No CEL has come on so its not throwing a code for us to know whats wrong with it. It would run when we unplugged the MAF sensor but as soon as we plugged it in it would die. After cleaning the MAF sensor and messing around with all of that it was fine. Now it seems to be idling under 1 when we come t a stop and sometimes will die. anybody know what this could be?

The possibilities are endless. do a compression check on the cylinders and see if your dropping a cylinder. If so this could be a valve sticking, bad head gasket, cracked cylinder wall (Where I would really start looking). Your symptom, by your de ... 1988 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Check Engine light comes on some times when it does the car cuts out and dogs down around 2800 rpm's.Restart the car and it runs fine.Code came back as 04-Crankshaft Position Sensor.I've been told by a mechanic its a non replacable part that is located in the distributor.My question is, is there another possible malfunction why that code would come up and is there something else I should do before I spend 160.00 on a distributor? Any thoughts or input would help.


NO You will have to replace distributor because the cranks sensor is located in distributor, However to help cut cost I would recommend getting a use distributor from a salvage place it should be alot less. Her ... 1994 Honda Accord

My car was making a crink sound when i tried to turn it on. I was told it was the battery so i went and bought a new one from auto zone. Drove it home just fine but when i got up to go out again, it would not start. EVERYTHING was dead this time. Not even the head lights would come on. My roommate gave me a jump and it started up. HE told me to take one of the connectors off when I go to places and have to leave the car off for long periods of time. WHen i do that, it starts back up just fine


It sounds like something is draining the battery. Hence it starts up if you disconnect during periods of disuse . As to what is draining can be hard to trace. ... 1999 Isuzu Rodeo

Po240 code came up when I did the key trick. Autozone got the same and so did the garage which cost me $55 for the computer set up. The only thing I found out was it wasn't the O2 sensors for $55. I need a car inspection this month. The light went out after he hooked it up to the computer and he told me to come back in a few days for inspection as the car needed to reset itself. On the way to garage, the light came back on! He told me it would cost $700-800 to fix catalytic converter. I am fin

Code wire(s) I hope someone can solve a code wire connection problem Iam having. I had a transmission put in my car sometime ago and the mechnic told me that he had to disconnect the code wires under the dashbroad in order for the transmissiom to shift beyond 1st gear(Automatic). At the time I thought why would he need to do that? Anyway, the transmission shifts fine but the problem is after I had reinstalled a new battery I could not put the code in to get my radio to come back on again because

I had the ABS light come on along with the service traction control. I had it checked at a GM dealer and was told that the right hub needed to be replaced. I OK'd the work thinking it would take care of both of the service lights. The ABS light is out but the traction control light still comes on when making turns or when backing up at times. The GM service rep said nothing could be done until the light stayed on. What is causing the light to come on when traction control is not even needed?


Hi,the traction control light coming up means there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected. Possible steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensor or brake pressure sensor since the light ... 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

How do I replace the PCM on my 02 jeep liberty? After days of testing Firestone told me that the code is a mis-fire in cylinder 2 and that it didnt make sense to them and take it to the dealer. I did and after two days of looking they told me that they need to replace the PCM and "probably" that would fix it. $895.00 out the door with labor. I see I can buy one of these from $175.00 to $350.00. I am somewhat mechanically inclined. Is this difficult? Thanks! Randy in Phoenix

I have a 2004 gmc envoy . I put the code reader on and it said code 301 . The car is running really heavy and stuttering . I changed the sprk plugs . But then I erased the code by accident . I changed my number 1 and 2 coil to see if the number 1 coil is bad . If it was would my check engine light or would the code come back up if it was bad ? Because I changed them and my check engine light didn't come back on


Keep an eye on the coil that was originally on your #1 plug. If it was bad you would get a code again, but I suspect it was a "contact" or connection issue & moving it made better contact on the cylinder you moved it to. ... 2004 GMC Envoy

I would greatly appreciate a list of check engine light codes for a 91 dodge spirit. I believe the code it put out was either: 1,2,4,7,5,5 3,4,7,5,5 This is for my girlfriends daughter, she was away at college and on the way home the check engine light came on. It is not overheating and the oil is fine. I think it is a O2 sensor but i would like to make certain since she is home for the weekend and i would like to make sure she has a safe trip back to school.


Your codes are two digits. It would be 12, 47, 55 (end)\015\01212 - memory stand by power lost - no big deal\015\01247 - battery voltage too low - 55 (end of codes) ... 1991 Dodge Spirit

My water light was coming on and after I turned the car off would go off but would come back on during driving would that mean the radiator cap may be needs replacing. Because when I checked it everytime and the water was full. Also, could that affect how my fans come on.I mean because an old cap would cause the engine not to have the pressure needed to make the fans come on when engine is getting hot, by themselves. does any of this have any truth to it or is there something else I should be lo
