I had an accident about a month ago and had my radiator, condensor and a motor mount put on my car. It ran hot a little hot after the accident but they said it was due to the radiator being burst. After getting the car out of the shop when I cranked the car it had a jerk so I thought it was a result of the motor mount not being on correct. So I returned it to the shop and was told that my cadiallac convertor was clogged so in the event of them repairing the convertor, they perceded to tell me that the convertor clogging caused a heating in the combustion chamber, my sparkplugs got wet and blowed a head gasket. My head were warped. After resurfacing the heads, set the timing chainback in time, putting on the gaskets, putting on the oil pan and assmebling everything, they stated that all the valves are not functioning at performance level. Only two of the cylinders are are 110. The car is cranking freely, without poping but the other two rings are not kicking out in the cylinder. How can this be fixed. Can I save my engine and will my car ever perform at normal standards again.What is going on, Is this normal, and what can be causing all of this!!!!!!!! PLEASE HELP

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima SE 3.5L and while leaving the house one day as I began to accelerate the motor lost power then wouldn't rev over 2500rpm, even in park. I replaced the throttle body but the problem is still there. It's now throwing multiple other codes; P1564, P0102, P1102, P0506, P0507, and P0113. Any ideas? Thank you

I was told to replace engine computer If I buy used one it is needs to be reprogram ? I have smart keys it is need reprogram to?


My vehicle has been having rough or brief "no start" conditions the last few weeks. There are times when it will start up right away normally, other times when it will hesitate then start then there are times when it would have a rough start. For example it would shake as if you were sitting in a truck, including when I accelerate but it would go away shortly after taking off to drive. I typically have the problem if I have already driven the vehicle for the day, then when I try to start it up later that same day it doesn't start. Now if it sits for the remainder of the day, the next day it will start.

Hello All ! I recently had my car repaired at a local dealer for Mass Air Flow Sensor and Engine/Coolant Temp Sensor. As part of this process, does anybody know if my ECM was suppose to be reprogrammed ?

we changed the mass air flow sensor, and engine coolant temp sensor. also changed fuel pump. Now my car has a millon codes. does this have something to do with the ECM not being reprogrammed
