The\012following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any\012electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.
The\012Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual\012transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically\012controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control\012Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or\012other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a\012record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this,\012like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor\012for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read\012these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a\012special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform\012the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)\012DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED\012THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT\012MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for\012correct spec for your make and engine type.\012Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related\012problem such as rough idle and other symptoms
