Took our tahoe in for oil change they also put in fuel injector cleaner since the we have had a hard idle problem that happens between 0 to 5 miles an hour then occasional it dies after you first start it. what do you thin is wrong we change the spark plugs to bosch plugs and new wires and a new fuel filter but it still did the same thing. We had it read at and it is still saying 8 is the problem so we put in a new silinode what do you think?

I hve a 04can Escape with the 3. 0 V6. Was running rough, so I replaced the plugs, coils, upper plenum gaskets, and front and rear exhaust manifolds. As I was going through the process of letting the pcm re learn the idle, fuel trim, the rear manifold started to glow red. What can cause this? Seems to be a chain reaction of problems with this thing!!

My timing belt broke and i had it replace now it will not start, the mitsubishi dear ( tech line said 2 things 1.crank sensor or 2.bent vaule ) that will keep it from staring. My Question the value he referring too is the (pushrod)?. I got 160psi on 3 of the spark plug reading the last near the driver reads 25psi.. SO I should replace the rocker arm, push rod,... and not do a head repair correct or not.... please help


He meant bent valve. you are looking at a head job. sorry but these are interference engines.In fact I believe it has an overhead cam right? If so then there are no pushrods. Generally all a bent pushrod does is leave the valve closed. ... 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

I have a 1991 Honda Accord and when I'm driving the RPM drops down to 0 and the car shuts off, sometimes it will start right back up and sometimes it won't. I have changed the spark plugs but what other things could possibly cause this to happen?

Recently my timing belt and cam balance belts both broke as i shifted into 3rd gear at prolly 25-30 mph i replaced them both making sure all the notches and tdc marks were where they were supposed to be but now the cars idles real rough but seems to drive smooth when accelerating its seems like the timing is off or a plug is fouled but like i said seems ok when accelerating its one thing after another im going crazy with this car and would really appreciate any information about this.. thanks, m


When your timing belt broke it's likely that a valve got bent from being out of time and hitting a piston. The first step is to do a compression test and see if you have one or more cylinders low. ... 1992 Honda Accord

Keeps stalling hi my 1994 volvo 940 keeps stalling. You can drive it for a little while, then the rpm thing goes down to 0 then if you dont put it in neutral fast enough it dies.

Years ago, the visor mirror cover on the passenger side, broke off. This is a lighted visor mirror. I was just going to leave it...but it seemed to get hot and I was afraid it would burn the ceiling material. We pulled out the light bulb, and the socket thing came out too. Shortly after that...all interior lights went out, and have been out since. I tried replacing the bulb..but I didn't have the socket to plug it into. We've lived with no interior lights for all these years..but now my daughter


After you pulled out the socket, maybe the positive and negative wires accidentally touched and blew a fuse. First, tape the wires so they can't touch each other. Then, look at the fuse box and see if a fuse is blown. The owners manual or perhaps ... 2001 GMC Jimmy

Fan blade pretty much exploded while i was driving the other day. Do i need to replace the fan clutch as well? I don't want to buy a new blade and have the same thing happen because the clutch is bad as well. Also, what would have caused it to break? I had noticed at idle RMP's (before the fan blade assembly broke) it would idle rough. I thought it needed a tune up, so i replaced the spark plugs, air filter etc. Still idled rough. Could it have been the fan blade was loose? when driving the v

Let me also say that on my 97 pathfinder it ran good up until i replaced the water pump. then it wouldnt start. so i changed the spark plug wires and plugs. same thing...wants to start just wont fire up. replaced distributer, same thing. replaced starter, same thing....spark is really weak ... any ideas would be greatly appreciated...thank u


My first thought was the timing belt was not in time since you have to remove the belt to get to the pump.The crank sensor is near the flywheel so it should not have been touched. But timing should not affect the spark coming out of the coil. ... 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

Autozone says I have a P0320 on my 2005 KIA Optima. I have read lots of things online about the crankshaft position sensor and one of the things that was suggested was to clean the electrical plug with contact spray and apply dielectric grease. But where is the plug located? The one on top the engine not the other end that is in the crank case.


It depends if it is a four cylider then it is behind the balance shaft\015\012belt but if it is a six cyl then the CPS is on the radiator side of the\015\012engine and closer towards the transmission and it only has one ten mm\015\012bolt through it ... 2006 Kia Optima

My 2003 Kia optima 2.4L DOHC engine broke the timing belt & balance shaft belt. It broke one valve cylinder 4, bent two intake valves cylinder two. I had just replaced both coil packs and wires and plugs.I pulled the head and had it reconditioned. My compression is about 165 to 170 psi per cylinder. I fire tested both plugs with clip on spark tester. On one and three getting white fire, logic probed injectors getting firing pulse on all four injectors. With plugs out I smell fuel. Logic probed
