The engine in this cars\012drive train is fully electronically controlled by a computer called\012the PCM. Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a\012record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to\012read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with\012a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform\012the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

I am not getting fuel to the throttle body. The pressure is at 0. If I dump gas into the throttle body, it will start and then I have pressure and stay running. I did this a couple of times and after that it would start up about three different times (morning, night and morning). Now I can't get it to start at all and the pressure gauge is on 30 psi.(does want to though). Thought it was the relay, but then found out that it was the fan control one that we would mess with. Any ideas on what

Mine is VW Golf 05, I didn't use it for 4 days and the temp below 0 in Omaha. when my wife tried to use it today, the emergency alarm came on and the car doesn't want to start. the light are ok but we hear started clicking.

I recently changed my timing belt on my 2007 1.7dti corsa utility. The problem now seems as if my turbo takes a while to function as I have to drive a short distance before it kicks in. There is a power loss from start as it doesn't want to go past 80km/hr. 0-80km/hr even takes more than 30sec. Any idea what is the problem? No hard start is experienced on the vehicle.

Had the head redone, new Carb fitted, new distributor cover and leads new spark plugs, crank timing set to mark (0)and cam timing (2e)set to mark on head. the engine swings, fires from the carb, spark on leads. engine wont start, backfires but not running
Sounds like you have your timing off. If it is backfiring, that means that 2 of your wires are crossed, causing the plugs to fire on the exhaust stroke versus the compression stroke. Recheck your timing. ... 1984 Toyota Corolla

I have a 1990 model Daihatsu Charade G102. I had to replace the Head Gasket which i did with a friend via the manual. when we put together it started first time then stalled. It would only keep going if i kept my foot on the accellerator. it also makes a popping noise and wants to stall as soon as i take my foot of the pedal. also the temp gauge has stopped working. what should i do to fix this problem?
The popping/stalling suggests you guys got your valve timing wrong when re-fitting timing belt. Remove your cover and double-check your timing marks on cam gear and crankshaft gear. Align you timing marks. ... 1992 Daihatsu Charade

When my taurus has sat overnight...or when it's cold. When I start it, it acts like it wants to die...then it revs up all of the sudden and seems fine. The gauge goes in between 0 and 1 for a few seconds than it revs up to 2 and slowly idles down to around one. I only have this problem when it's cold outside or if the car has sat overnight. What could be going on?

Hi there,my 2000 jeep cherokee 4.0l temp gauge keeps going up and down,goes up to normal when the car is at idle in drive and then will start to idle rough then miss and then want to stall,and then when i drive the temp gauge goes down to 0 and seems to run rich and get run-on in the revs can you please help me??????and there is no engine check light coming on, thank you

Check IAC sensor and TPS and MAF sensors if IAC is ok. IAC will amke your idle go up and down all crazy and cause stalls when slowing down or releasing throttle but TPS and MAF also can effect this. ... Dodge Intrepid

It will work fine for 30 miles or so and then it starts jumping around and drops to 0.......it will not register for a while, sometimes my whole trip (100 miles or so) and then it will jump back up to speed and work the rest of my drive..Someone told me it was probably the speed sensor but where is it and how do i change it?
