Car would idle rough when cold. Changed PCV and MAP, then put in coolant temp sensor. Car runs fine, but temp gauge doesn't work now. Took off and turned 180* and sprayed with carb cleaner thinking it may have a coat of anti freeze on it. Do I need a bigger hammer? Thanks for the advice!
When driving home today, the above lights came on. I was able to get home, but as soon as I turned the car off, it won't come back on. Earlier today the battery light was on. What should I do?
KEY IS TURNED TO THE START POSITION THE LIGHTS SHOW A LITTLE CAR WITH A x ON TOP OF IT ,THE CAR WILL NOT START UNTIL ABOUT THREE OR FOUR ATEMPS, THEN IT STARTS AS IF NOTHING WAS WRONG.
i connected them direct to the battery and they kicked on. i disconnected the temperature censor unit and they turned on. the temperature gauge reads in the middle. it will not go any higher, but the water boils out from the reservoir. i am thinking the thermostat is stuck and will not let water through. i am stuck on this. please help.
I purchased the car from the original owner and it was very well taken care of. It's a fully loaded Limited Edition. I had my mechanic check everything and he says it's in great condition. He told me to find out if the belt has ever been replaced as a preventative measure, as of now there are no problems or symptoms pertaining to the timing belt. I thought he only asked me about that because maybe these cars are known to having problems with the timing belt once they hit a certain amount of miles.
Sometimes hard starting (all weather temps), sometimes high idle for first minute or so (up to 1600 RPM vice 800 or so normal).
Transmission problem: It knocks every time i switch the gears from Park, well only after its sat for like a work day or all night.
Starter/Battery/Fuel Pump: basically i have to trickle charge the battery 2-3 times a week so i dont have to use a jump box every time i start it up. i think its the constant use of the starter on start up that drains it because the fuel pump isnt pumping enough fuel for combustion once again only after it sits for a while. I think its the Fuel Pump Regulator but i need some outside advice before i go ripping it apart.

i go through 1quart of oil a week steady drip
I just recently changed my trans fluid and for a while everything was fine. After a couple weeks it just started shifting wierd, changing gears on its own when it doesnt need to. Some time while in drive it acts like its in 4th. I have no idea what happened.
