I have a 2006 saturn ion, and when my aircon is on my rpm needle goes up and down...it doesn't matter if i'm driving or in park. When i'm in park the issue is much worse. The RPM needle keeps doing the same thing but after about 10-15min in park my RPM needle goes to 0 and shuts off the car. When the car is doing this my aircon works but doesn't cool like it's supposed to. I already had the throttle body replaced but the issue continues...please help!!!

I can jump start my car, but it only runs when i have my foot on the gas. It will run as long as my foot is on the gas, but as soon as I release the gas, the RPM drops to 0 and the engine shuts off and the battery meter slowly goes from 14 V to 0 V. Im trying to figure out if it is the battery, the alternator, or the voltage regulator. (it could be something else but my limited knowledge of cars gets me thinking it is one of these) any help is appreciated, what is wrong?


First thing I'd do there is charge the battery using a battery charger, then have it load tested. Nothing else in the system can be properly tested if the battery will not pass that test. Once that has been done and if the battery is bad, you have r ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Oil pressure goes to 0 at low rpm (idle) goes up with rpm. what other causes can it be other than pressure switch?


Well the only other thing it can be related to is the oil pump and or oil pump pick up. you could have sludge in the pan and the pick up screen is having a hard time passing the oil. but most common with these engines are the pumps getting weak. ... 1999 Lincoln Navigator

My rpm gage is not working, my speedometer is not working, my gas gage is not working, and my oil gage is not working, and my temperature gage is not working pretty much when i start up my car and drive it my speedometer and rpm gage reads 0 and my other , gages read nothing. my lights still work, so does my radio, and so does my turn signals. what could b the problem?


I'd wager that the fuse that controls the gauges is shot, or one of the internal connectors got unplugged (Fuse sounds more likely). Radio, Lights, and Turn Lamps are usually on seperate circuits. ... Ford Explorer

I have a 2002 hyundai elantra I have replaced the alternator and got a new battery well it ran for one day then while driving it the next day there was a big clunk like something fell out of the motor then the RPM dropped to 0 then it died.

So what i am asking is is there a relay or fuse or sensor that has failed or did I get a bad alternator??? Please help ASAP I miss

My Nissan Primera P12 2003 model 2,0 CVT (Automatic) troubles me. This beacause the engine stops VERY often! This especially when I drive toward a cross or a roundabout. I step off the gaspedal and the engine turning (rpm)falls to way below 300 - 400 rpm... The garage is not giving me any advice.

My 2003 Jetta GLX (V6) starts with a very low idle 800-900 regardless of the outside temperature and maintain at 850 or so during normal operating temperature. The idle is too slow to kick-in the charging system and I have to tap the gas pedal to 1500 RPM, otherwise, I will have a Battery light indicating low voltage or Alternator Workshop. I believe the idle should initially be at 1500 rpm, especially when the outside temperature is around 0 degree. Everyone of my cars, idle fast at 15
