I own a 97 saturn sl1, and i am wondering what would cause my car to blow white smoke out of the exhaust pipe of course. I thought it would be less smoke if I were to let the car warm up for ten minutes then press the gas peddle a few times to blow all the initial smoke out so that when i go to drive away it would not be as bad. however when my husband stood and observed the smoke he noticed that there is also a black substance that will come out. like a soot.. I know that it burns alot of oil t

It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more oft ... 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

The passlock system is preventing the vehicle from starting. There is a light on the dashboard that says security and is flashing. I did some research and found out that if you leave the key in the on position for ten minutes and then take it out the car will start. I am about to get the whole security system removed and was wondering if this would create more problems.

I have a 2003 Saturn Ion. Over the last two year I have had an intermittent problem with the car not starting. I'll stop at a store come back out within ten minutes and the car engine will not turn over. If I wait for about ten minutes and try again the car will turn on. It usually only happens every 3 or 4 month but over the last 2 weeks I have had it happen 3 times. I am now getting a warning that says "Service Engine". I have not changed the battery in the car since it was new. Is this a batt


Brad, I too have the same vehicle with the same problem, however I don't think its a battery or alternator problem. I thought those were it at first too however after getting both checked that was not the case. My friends and family who have ex ... 2003 Saturn ION

Car shots down within 18 minutes of it running, fan does not seem to be running. It's a Saturn L-series 2001, drove it all the way to S. Carolina from Ohio with no problem. Yesterday I was driving to the Marine base and within 18 - 20 minutes the car just shot down, there was no studering or anything it just shot off completely after it cooled down it would start again. The mechanic that looked at it first said it was the fuel pump, fixed that, that wasn't it, the car shot down again, then he fi

I backed my 99 Century LTD out of my driveway onto a street, put it into drive and started to drive down the street when I heard a clunk as if I had driven over something. There was nothing under or behind the car but when I put the car in drive it would not go forward. It woud go backward in Reverse. After about ten minutes, I realized it would drive in 1st. After a few blocks, I found it would shift into 2nd, then 3rd and then Dreive - all - as long as the car was moving. It was an automatic


You need to have the Transmission checked. It sounds like something in the transmission has dropped or the differential a transmission shop will be able to tell you. Sorry this isn't going to be an Easy or Cheap fix. Before going to the Transmissi ... 1999 Buick Century

I have a Toyota Corolla 1300 1992 model. The problem recently started that while driving, long or short distance, the car would stall. The parking brake light and check-oil light would light up on turn or the ignition, but not the battery light. At first I left the car for a few minutes and then she would start right up again. But the problem has happened 3 times within an half hour. And I hear a bubbling sound somewhere in the car, and there seems to be a liquid in the battery tray, but no

I have 05 s-type and my key works to lock the car and unlock the car when I get out but about 20 minutes later the key pad will not unlock the car so I have to put the key in the door and the alarm goes off. So every time I lock my door and its more than 20 or 30 minutes my alarm goes off to get back in the car. Annoying. I wonder if someone reset the computer or if my key is not set properly or if I got a new key if this would solve the problem


When you use the key to unlock the car you must put the key in the ignition immediately, this should stop the alarm sounding - if it does not you have an alarm module fault - get it checked at dealers.\015\012\015\012good luck - hope this helps ... 2005 Jaguar S-Type

I replaced the fuel pumps and filter and tried to start the car and it sounded like the fuel pumps were not coming on so I ran jumper wires from an external battery to them and the car fired right up. I drove the car around the block everything seemed fine but then died after ten minutes,then would not start again. I let it sit over night and tried it and the car started right up but shut off in a five or so minutes. That's all it keeps doing over and over. It starts if I put gas in the intake s

I autostart my 1998 honda accord and it starts up. I get in the car, deactivate the alarm and it dies within a minute or after a few minutes.. Won't turnover for another 10-15 minutes (varies each time) and then starts up quickly and drives wonderfully. I have a new battery, spark plugs. Happens randomly. Once happened as I started to pull out of my spot and the car was warm already and another time at the stop sign and I was driving for a while already.


Did you answer or got notify by Honda on the recall on the ignition control module (ICM)?\015\012\015\012I would call your local Honda dealer and provide them the VIN # (on the lower driver side) so they can verify the service history.\015\012 ... 1998 Honda Accord

Electrical problem? Ever since it started to get cold outside I've been having problems with the '96 es300 not starting. Today I warmed it up for a good 20 minutes and went to get my kids at school. After ten minutes of not being in the car, the car would not turn over and required a jump. The battery was replaced already, prior to today, and the power antenna has been disconnected because that's what was thought to be wrong with it the last time. The mechanic said nothing at all was drawing on

2005 Accord Battery was drained, car received a jump and ran fine for a good ten minutes. While driving it seemed that the power would cut out for 1/2 second then come back on. Car would run fine but it happened about 4 times in a 20 min driving session. Any ideas?


Check the connections on your battery, it sounds like they could be loose. Also your alternator could be going out. Make sure the connections to the battery are clean, try using soda to clean them. Whatever the case maybe your car is too ... 2005 Honda Accord

2002 Honda Civic- Car ran great and within a few minutes there was no movement forward or back. Engine still runs fine. Would the auto trans go out that completely that quickly or is it something electronic vs mechanical? I would think the trans would show signs of problems for a while before complete non operation? Fluid is fine.


If the fluid is fine, then I would think that an electronic/mechanical breakdown has occurred.\015\012I would have the car's computer scanned with an OBD-II Scanner in order to find out if any transmission codes have been tripped. If so, then i ... 2002 Honda Civic

While driving my 2004 pontiac grand prix, my service brake indicator came on. I recently had my brakes checked and was told that pads and rotors were fine, but that within the next few month I would need new front pads (80, 000 miles). I came to my destination, depressed the parking brake after shutting off the car and released it. Came back to my car 20 minutes later and started the car and the light did not come back on. Could the sensor be monitoring the amount of pad left, or is there someth


At 80000 miles there is a very good chance that you are ready for new front pads. That is precisely what I tell my customers when I exchange brake pads. "Come and see me in about 80000 miles" The sensors will pick up on a fimly depressed brake pedal ... 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

Mazda3 Blowers The ineterior fans, or blowers, will not turn on in my car. it started about a year ago, and it would take a few seconds for them to kick on. not a big deal, and i didnt even notice til i realized that after my car was on and running, it still wouldnt turn on for about 5 seconds... then ten, then about a minute. It has progressively gotten worse, til now, i can run the car for about two hours, and maybe, if im lucky, they will turn on. This is miserable when your in the dead of mi

Gages I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Limited. The other day the temperature gauge went from normal temp to Max HOT. The radiator is still cool enough to touch, it is not boiling over, and there is still coolant in the resivour. The gauge would go back down to normal in a few minutes, but now it immediately climbs to Max Hot within 1-2 minutes of turning the car on.

My 06 Suzuki Reno threw me out of drive this morning. I was pulling in a parking lot and the car would not accelerate. I looked down and the gear shift showed D but the light on the dash showed N; then I threw the car into park and then tried to put it in drive again and the light on the dash started blinking with all the symbols lit at the same time. After another minute I was able to put it in drive and move again. I am just wondering what happened?

95 Camaro 3.4l starts great runs really rough. So you turn it off put it in neutral and then its runs fine. Sometimes you have to do it more than once. But the kicker is you have to open a door to cut all power to the car (radio stays on for ten minutes after you turn car off if you don't open door.) What would cause this to happen????

My 2008 Ford Escape would not start this morning. The Escape is driven everyday including just last night. The battery is charged, the car will not turn over. There is an icon on the dashboard of a red lock. I tried the turning on and off for ten minute intervals to reset the the key to the car, this did not work either.

I have a 1993 LEXUS 400 LS. The car has two recurrent problems : 1) the instrument cluster goes on and off and then totally off after about 15 minutes. On hot days it may not illuminate from the start. This problem was "fixed" once by Lexus of Kendall - the circuit board was replaced. Within 10,000 miles of use the problem recurred and Lexus would not agree to take responsibility and required me to pay anew to take care of the problem. I took the car somewhere else and paid $2,000 plus. The pr

The AC on my 1995 Taurus has recently been going in and out. It would blow cold for 5 min then warm for 1 min. When the weather was cold the heater did the same thing. It would blow hot for a few minutes then cold for a few. Now the car has overheated and I'm wondering if the overheating could be related to the temperature control problem?


If you switch off your A/C and the vehicle begins to cool down then you will need to look and see if your radiator fan is working. Next thing to look at is to check if your A/C condenser is plugged up. Clean the condenser fins and also t ... Ford Taurus

Immediately after I start my '07 Corolla the idle speed is around at 1,400-1,600. This generally happens in the morning or after work. When that happens if I I let it idle for five minutes it goes down to about 700-800. I generally don't let the car idle for that long but I just tried it before. I should say that when I start it after it's been ridden recently (within a half hour) it runs at what I would consider the normal idle speed (700-800) within 10-20 seconds. For example, if I go up
