Starting problem Car starts after pressing gas pedal or after releasing pressure by unscrewing the gas cap. It will idle poorly right after starting until you rev it and let it come back down to idle. Things already done: new gas cap, new spark plugs, compression test on cylinders, fuel filter changed and fuel injector cleaner put in the tank about 5 times now. other things to rule out: starter is fine, alternator is fine

1990 Geo Metro. Driving down the road with the a/c on the car loses power and starts slowing down. Also hear a sound, like compressed air being released the wife says under the car behind the front seats, I think its coming from exhaust. I spoke with a couple of people who say vacuum leak or ignition module.The a/c is also not cooling properly. I can turn the a/c off and the motor picks back up. A few minutes later I turn the air back on and it runs fine for awhile. Thanks for your help.


It sounds like the ac compressor is building up to much head pressure.Check the cooling fans to see if they come on when the ac is turned on.The cooling fan should come on when the ac is turned on.This keeps the head pressure down so the freon keeps ... Geo Metro

Hi, I have a 1994 Chevy Cavalier with the 2.2L 4Cyl Engine. We bought it off a private owner and it was running good. We went to autozone to get a new fuel injector because one was leaking, we replaced that. When we went to start it back up it wouldn't start. We tested the starter and battery and alternator all checked out good but still no start. We had it towed back to the house where we could work on it. We ran our own test with a tester and turned out the starter solenoid switch was ba

Fuel leak on 2008 duramax. Fuel is filling valley but bus starts, runs, has not lost power so I'm thinking return side. I can barely see the back of the pump from inside dog box, looks like wet around plug in back of pump, but thought if plug was leaking truck would show signs of loss of power, or no start. I have taken apart the whole front of motor down to pump and still see no return line leaking nor a sensor. Just wanted to know if anyone has come across this before and has an educated idea

How important is it to replace a camshaft interruptor? While getting an oil change on Monday, they noticed an oil leak so they sprayed degreaser to find out where the leak was coming from and the spark plugs started to spark (big time). The mechanic suggested to replace all 6 plugs so he did. He said to come back later to determine where the oil leak is coming from. Then I went in this morning, Sat., and he said it was the camshaft interruptor that needed to be replaced. My mother (whose car th

I took it back to the guy and asked what could be wrong as it started perfectly that morning but he immeadtly said it could be the battery. So i had a guy come to test it but im not sure if he was just trying to sell me a battery.

09 Pontiac g5 over heats while sitting at idle cooling fans not working they come on with the ac which is normal and after you turn the ac off they will stay on until engine cools back down and they shut off again which once again is normal operation. But when the engine temp starts to climb back over 196* they will not come back on until you turn the ac back on. I have moved the relays around to see if maybe a faulty relay is to blame but nada. Next step i would think is test the Ect sensor. Ho
