I just bought a used 94 bravada, the woman told me that the air intake sensor thing was not the right one, that it was from a 2000 4.3 astro van and that it needed a tune up bad.I drove the vehicle about 600 miles and then ran real low on gas and had it parked for about 4 days in the cold rain.I went to start today and will not start.I do hear the fuel pump from the tank it is humming fine.I also went to the station and got two gallons of gas and put in.While trying to start I ran the battery do

Gas? i have a 2000 ford excursion. we normally used gas at the chevron station but decided to use another gas station instead. my excursion was doing fine yesterday, but when we used it today, it seems to be missing or holding back when i pressed the gas pedal. Have you also heard if anyone can pressure wash or steam wash the engine?

I have a 2008 Nissan Maxima. When you are putting gas in it at the gas station it acts like it is either clogged up or it is building pressure and sends the gas back out of the filler tube onto the ground. You can pump the gas real slow or use a gas can that flows slow and it will take the gas, but if you try and use the full pressure behind the nozzles at a gas station it will not take the gas. I had a mechanic look at all the vent hoses and he said that there was nothing blocking them. What ar

Weather has been below normal and when I start off the steering wheel shakes. Periodically during a trip (usually lower speeds) it shakes. Stopped at gas station a week ago and they put air in fromt right tire and temporarily seemed to resolve the problem. Guess that wheel should be checked ? (I'm an 84 yr. old senile woman.)


One tire with lower pressure will often make the car pull to one side but not usually shake.I definitely would have both front tires checked for broken belts that can cause the tire to warp, usually causing a visible bulge or bend in the tire. ... Toyota Corolla

Hi my name is Gabriel and I'm having a really big problem my lady is due with our first baby this aug 23 and my car just broke down 3 days ago. We were driving up a hill on a hot day two hour trip.

After a while the car started to shake a lil and the temp went up a lil so I pulled over at a gas station and added water oil and air to the tires. Everything good we went back on the road and after about 10 mins after I turne

You use premium gas in a TDI? Run that by me again? A TDI is a diesel engine car. What don't I understand here? I'm not being a smart __s but this just does not make sense. If you have put gasoline in a TDI, DO NOT DRIVE IT. Tow it to a dealer. ... Volkswagen Jetta

In my Nissan Sentra 1.8, 2005 model car, when I go to gas station to fill gas, even after filling two to three liters of gas, the gas nozzle stops as if the gas tank is full. Sometimes while filling the gas, the gas overflows even if the gas tank is empty and can take 25 liters more in the tank. At the gas station when I open the gas tank lid to fill the gas, I listen a noise of air ( gas wapour) coming out of the tank. To fill my gas tank fully, the gas nozzle stops every two liters and to fill

Why would there be oil in my cold air intake in my Blackwood? It runs but barely and extremely rough idle. I thought I got some very dirty gas from a gas can my husband used to put gas in it after he changed the oil.We put a new massflow sensor in it and found oil in the air intake area. Also, the pcv valve was loose? Any help would be welcome and much appreciated. Thanks ..... I so love my truck!!! Diana S. Nebraska


When oil is found in the intake it is most likely the pcv is malfunctioning. You say it is loose. The rubber it is seated in may be bad now that it has oil on it. You should replace the pcv and the rubber that it is seated in. If the problem continue ... 2002 Lincoln Blackwood

1990 Nissan Sentra 4-speed, will not idle unless you give it a little gas. Been doing this for the last 8 months (I know, but had too many other things to do). Have to use hand brake at stops so that I can use gas peddle and clutch. On a down hill or up hill makes things interesting. Engine runs like a top (no missing and plenty of pick up) when not at idle. I was told that at this age the hoses can creak and leak air and mess up the idle. Which line should I start with? Had new sparks put in
