I replaced the oxygen sensor on my 03 Audi A4 3.0L. I noticed the sensor was glowing red and the car was missing which prompted me to replace it. It did not fix the problem at all. I still have a check engine light on, and the new sensor still glows red after running it down the road and back. What could be wrong?
Your best bet is to go to http://www.audi-forums.com/ for your o2 sensor questions, also if you like to do your own stuff then try vag com software (if you search enough you sh ... 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet
2007 Jeep Cherokee 2.8 CRD. Glow plug light comes on when starting cold engine, then you will hear "ding" warning sound and the glow plug red light flashes continuously during the drive. Jeep replaced glow plug no 3 yesterday. This morning, same thing happened as before - light does not go off once engine is running. Jeep explained the problem might be water dripping on the glow plug - could be cracked cilinder head. Does this sound like a reasonable explanation? What can cause the glow plug to

Glowing manifolds what would make my manifolds glow red ? i looked at the catalytic converter in the dark it was not glowing. the car revs up fine,runs fine when going up a hill i can smell sulpher smell. which makes me believe it is the converter, but i thought i would ask if it could be something like the oxygen sensor.
To much fuel into the exhaust manifold your converter could be causing a restriction have you lost power is your check engine lite on is this an older car with a smog pump sometimes with a smog pump it will push the unused fuel thru the manifold an b ... Buick Regal

My 2000 VW Beetle needs help. Inside the cabin it smells like mable syrup. It does not have an oder outside the car. The temp light is blinking red. It does not blink red all the time. Only for maybe a minute at a time. Most often it comes on within about five min of running the car. Then every so often while driving. What could it be and what am I looking at for the cost of repairs.

Sounds like you have a plugged up catalytic converter. You cant clean them it will need replaced. If it is the 4cyl engine, the converter is the exhaust manifold on the front of the engine. ... 2001 Hyundai Sonata
Periodically firing while trying to cold start, finally started running but barely at at idle. Pumping throttle slowly increased RPM , but was popping back thru the intake. AFter a few minutes, rev it up-but ran really rough. Shut off, pulled plugs and they were sooted over. Later-restarted, after cleaning plugs-seemed to run better but overheated exhaust pipe to glowing red.

I have a 1998 dodge dakota sport. i start it and it runs fine after about 5 to 10 mins the oil presser goes from normale to 0 and it starts ticking i just got it and the oil is very thin. what could be the problem?????
It could have the wrong weight of oil in it. Check the owner's manual for the correct weight of oil. 10W-40 oil is pretty standard.It could have fuel in the oil. This fuel would be most likely from a leaking fuel injector and will cont ... 1998 Dodge Dakota
My 2001 Ford Escape started out idling rough When it would first get started. THen it started idling rough non stop. Then the brakes would stop working when it started to idle and now when you turn it on the RPM's jump to 3000 and constantly climb. I also recently noticed that when it runs for a few minutes the catylatic converter glows fire red. Any idea what this could be?
Catalytic is likely plugged real bad. It could have an effect on egr or other vacuum operated devices. ... 2001 Ford Escape
1996 gmc yukon. replaced fuel pump 3 times in 2 months, finally running then it wouldnt start one day. cranked it over for awhile and nothing. sat 15 min it started right up, drove home shut off, then started back up. next day no start. just replaced fuel relay still no start, checked fuel pressure its at 0, is it possible the pump is bad again or could it be the clip for the power to the pump being loose or faulty?
This is a very common problem. GM has issued a service bulletin to replace the wiring connector at the fuel pump assembly on top of the tank. check the end of the plug for burnt terminals. the service bulletin states that these corroded connectors ca ... 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe
2001 cavalier 2.2 engine. After running , engine not up to operating temp. but the exhaust is starting to glow red. The cat.conv. replaced, no vaccum leaks. What could be the problem?
The problem could be in the O2 sensor. It's reading the exhaust gases as too rich so it's leaning out the fuel mixture to compensate and the knock sensors are enriching the mixture because they are reading. In my car it turned out to be a dead cylind ... 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
My 2000 mitsubishi eclipse was running good until i got my spark plug wires and sparks changed. Now when i stop at a red light or stop sign the car starts to idle and then dies. Sometimes it starts back up easy and sometimes it takes a couple of mins. What could be wrong with it?

I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 sport 5.9. I was driving down the road the other day and gave it gas and the truck started bogging, knocking, with no power from the motor. I had to milk it as far as i could out of the middle of no where to get towed. Once pulled over i looked underneath and saw that the exhaust pipe right before the catalytic converter was glowing red. I got it towed home from AAA. The next day i went out to the truck and started it up and it ran like ****. Wouldn't idle on it
Cmp And Ckp are your cam and crank sensors. Basically whats going on is one of those sensors are malfunctioning causing the system to adjust its resources. ie the pcm guesses how fast the cam or crank is turning and adjust timing as nessessary. Pul ... 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
My card when speeded at around 50km plus gets heated and AC stops working.. the coolant indicator runs towards the red mark and car needs top be stopped for 10-15 mins.. what could be the problem? have the gas kit in the engine burst?

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!!
