I have a 1995 Acura GS Sedan with 160,000 miles and the dealer can't fix my car. The car has a constant miss and hesitation on accleration. The dealer said they suspect bad coil intermittently and to replace coil packs. I replaced all (6) coil packs with OEM coils myself and it did NOT fix the problem. Took the car back to the dealer and they said they don't have a SCOPE machine to diagnosis the problem and recommended I visit a Smog repair shop. I then brought the car to a Independent Repa

The "engine check" light is on and a local Toyota dealer said that the computer board is bad. Does it need to be replaced right away? They said it could be an expensive fix? Can I get this fix at other car dealer? The car is still operating normally in the last three weeks with the warning light? Can I buy the computer board and install myself? Thanks for the advice.
If it runs sufficiently then there's no reason to do it immediately. generally, computer replacements are expensive because the computer itself is expensive. varying by age and vehicle, they tend to range from $200-$2000 just for the part. installati ... 2001 Toyota Sienna
I have a 2006 lincoln ls with 105,000. My problem started about a month ago when ETC failsafe mode appeared. I had the codes read and it was a bad throttle body which i replaced with OEM. About a week later the car started shaking and misfiring and the Check engine light came on. I had the codes read agian and this time it said it was coils A,B,D,E, were bad. My mechanic checked everything and said it wasnt the coils but the ECM. I sent hte ECM off to AES to have them fix or reman it, but

My pt cruiser just quit driving down the road one day put it on computer said coil pack was bad changed it still wouldnt start hooked back up to computer said cam sensor was bad changed it still wouldnt start whats next step
Go back to basics before they replace your whole engine. I'm assuming the engine cranks, yes? Is there a spark coming from the coil? You can test this yourself by pulling a wire off one of the plugs and holding near the motor while someone cranks ... 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I have a 1997 Buick LeSabre. Check engine light came on, stalls at stop lights, dies while driving. Hooked it up to a diagnostic, said PO 102. Went to the junk yard, took a MAF off a running car, hooked it up, reset the computer and same thing. I bought some car cleaner, shot in the intake, changed the air filter.. still does the same thing. I seem to be flying through gas as well. What should I do next? Mind you, I'm a single mother, who knows a bit about cars, but I'm wanting to fix this m
Your doing it the right way by heading to the junkyard. I go there as much as I can to find parts. MAF sensors are fairly fragile and if the car you removed it from was wrecked, it could have damaged the sensor. I always suggest removing and cleaning ... 1997 Buick LeSabre
When going up hills car loses power and shuts down. it would start after sitting overnight. after doing this 3 times our dealer told us they could not find anything wrong with it.they kept giving us the car back . when it happened again the car went completely dead no power anywhere.we had it towed back to the dealer and now he is telling us it needs a new computer, which is under our waranty but he also says all the coils are bad and it will cost 1300.00 to fix . does this sound right?
Did they say why the computer is covered on warranty, but the coils aren't? Would they have been covered had they found the problem the first time you took it there for problem? Tell them to do computer only, and then you try it and see how it's run ... 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara

If your mechanic would suggest taking the thermostat out i dont think to highly of him, i think after installing the waterpump they didnt purge the cooling system correctly, if you remove the thermostat your heater wont blow hot air and it may also c ... 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

Daewoo Lacetti 1.6 - ever since the car was about a year old the check engine light has been on. The SERE engineers said it was nothing to worry about at each service interval. For the last year the car has been losing power to the point it is dangerous to drive. i recently had it hooked to a computer and the only thing it says is 'multiple mis fires'. I had the leads, plugs and coil pack changed. Light stayed off for a day! It drove like new for a week, then the problem has come back. I've just

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid. It was leaking water really bad so i bought a water outlet or connector from the dealership and had a local mechanic fix it. He did not replaced the tubing, the one that hooks to the radiator hose (i guess that is where it goes) and the one that looks like it goes straight into the engine. All he did was replace the plastic housing because mine had a big piece missing from one that came off my car. that day my car ran fine on the way home. the next day, i drove it m

Engine miss I am looking at buying a 1990 Ford Taurus SHO The guy is telling me that it has a miss in it when it warms up and that the car just acquired it after it set in his garage for 6 months my thoughts on this is that it is bad gas. This is what he said though that he put all this on new and that it still didnt fix the problem new parts 02 sensors,map sensor, plugs, wires, coil pack, filters, ignition module he also said that he had bought a couple trouble shootin guides vacume trouble
Ok i think that the problem is the thermostat if you change it and still the same maybe is possible that is getting water into the heater and you need to buy a new ones ore go to rectificate where is the crack in your heaters and ... 1990 Ford Taurus
We have a 2000 Ford Windstar that was in getting the transmission fixed. Since working on the transmission, the car won't start. We gave them both keys and they said they needed to get new keys from the dealership and have them reprogrammed. They still aren't having any luck with the new keys--the shop mentioned something about the "halo" in the computer might be bad. What does this mean and any idea of the cost??
I am assuming that the vehicle ran prior to getting the transmission repaired. If so you should not need any new keys and the computer should be good. The shop doing the work has obviously done something wrong. If it did not run prior to taking it in ... 2000 Ford Windstar
Missing my Cadillac Catera is missing ( sputters and rides rough), I took it to auto zone where they hooked it up on their computer and said the the third coil was not firing. Can you tell me is this an expensive fix or relatively easy.

After starting or while driving, the engine has shut down on five different occasions. The dealership has hooked it up to their computer and have not been able to find anything wrong. A little over a week ago they said the battery was dead and the fan housing had to be replaced. We had these things fixed but the car stopped on me again today. After it sits a few days, it usually runs fine until it stops again.
Sounds like it might be a crank sensor. ... 2004 GMC Envoy
2 problems. first problem, once the truck is started it won't shift out of park. i have to shut it off and shift into neutral and start it again and then shift into gear. second problem, the truck sounds like its missing and then it sputters badly when accelerating. hooked it up to a computer and it said number 4 plug wasn't firing. i replaced all the plugs and plug wires and still got the same problem. replaced the coils and it still didn't work.any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The shifter problem sounds like the shift interlock is not releasing, check to see if your brake lights work, if not probably a fuse or brake light switch. Your misfire could be a bad injector or no compression in cyl 4. You probably had code P0304 ... 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
98 Buick Park Avenue, Mechanic called and said the car was running like a charm. He also said that there is a whining noise and a leak coming from the tranny. This vehicle went in because the motor was gone, it ran hot at first and would not start. Had a mechanic look at it and he saw that it had to much oil in it and a coil was bad. Drained the oil and repalced the coil and the car started. It smoked alot and he said it was oil in the catalytic converter. It sat up for a while before going to g

I've just recently gotten a oil change and tune up to my car. After I had a accident with my car involving a dear a year ago. Now before I got this tune up my car was working fine and the minute I get my car is shaking really crazy it almost sound like the engine wants to shut off, but it doesn't when you press on the gas it jumps and slowly accelerates. The people at the garage said that I need a coil and it would smooth. How many coils does a Saturn have? Do you think a coil could fix the prob
If the coils were bad, you would have more then that issue and does any check engine light show up on your dash. What kind of tune up did they do??? Wondering if they crossed the spark plug wires, if they did change that or if they just replaced the ... 2001 Saturn SL

O2 Sensors I have a 1996 tacoma and the engine light came on. I took it to auto zone and they hooked it to the computer and said I had a bad oxygen sensor.(bank 1 Sensor 2) I bought the sensor and replaced it, then I removed the positive cable from the battery to reset the code.(I was told this is how to reset the computer) The next day the light comes on again. Is it possible that another sensor is bad? I was told that the computers may not be that accurate ( they could read a sensor was bad bu
