it is a 2.0L engine, my rpms wont go over 3000rpm which is stopping it from shifting properly, wont go any faster then 110kms and sometimes only 70kms.i have back pressure in my gas tank, but whas told that that is a good thing. my epc light was on but i changed the throttle control valve and it whent out. i also did a complete tune up,plugs,oil,air filter etc. i know it is something small and simple but im just not sure where to start.. any ideas? thanks in advance
I have replaced heater matrix but there is trapped air coming back up into my water tank it bubbles and overflows if i take the cap off after driver.

Its a peugeot 307cc
it only happens on cold days in the morning. my engine half injection half carberator 1.6
also after driving for a few miles and stop iget it hard to start again but ie i wait foe 10 to15 minuites it will start easy
It is wearing out. Have replaced twice in the last 12 months. It is a ribbed belt. But the water pump pulley is flat. This pulley doesn’t run on the back of the belt. This I think is the problem. But this might be the correct set up for the belt. Also have checked all pulleys if running true. All ok. Has anyone come across problems similar???
what would cause the break lights not to work or come on even though fuses have been replaced and no burnt out blubs
silley question doe,s any one know where there might be a 210 datsun besides the junk yard or china?their not much to look at but they last better then a v.w and coast alot less to fix

ikeep on going through throttle cables is is my 3d in 4 years!What would be the cause of them breaking?allso what would cause the gear shift to shudder?
When parking or turning the wheel at a slow acceleration the car squeals loudly. Could it be power steering? I checked the power steering fluid and it is in between the marks for being fine. What to do?
I check the fluids and notice the water is low. Sometimes it gets so low the water light comes on in the dash board.
last year i had my timing belt replaced do i need to have it replacd again or will it be ok to just replace the water pump.
It sounds as if the car is under stress whenever I make turns, especially left turns. The noise is a kind of low-pitched squealing. I haven't noticed any fluid leaking onto the ground.
sometimes it works.. sometime it doesnt..
At first it was very low pressure in the 1st gear,yesterday while driving I put it in the wrong gear( i believe it slipped in the reverse gear and it made a loud raddling noise. It will go into gears easy, but it ain't moving at all. Just making the loud noise
It has good fuel pressure but stop at the fuel distributor no fuel going out to the engine.the fuel line was dry going to injector tip, the distributor looks new, my friend got this car a year ago.I need help or idea with this car. thanks
Here is the fact and symptoms:

1. Chirping noise when idle, Noise goes away when in clutch
2. Whinning noise when driving, Noise goes away when driving
3. On jack, left wheel spin up, knocking sound can be heard from gearbox.
4. Oil level - Not sure
People said, change the gearbox, throwout bearing fails, bad bad bearing inside tranny; but i`m not sure which,
GTI 1.8L 16v what we did clean air intake, throtle body, checked fuel pressure 40lbs and cold start valve working and has a good spark but no start. need help :(
fuel pump seems ok you can hear noise,but never check fuel filter,fuel distributor, fuel pressure and fuel regulator

Any idea how much this will cost to fix ?
I recently purchased my 2003 VW Golf and a few weeks ago changed the oil after noticing it was time to do so (I did it myself). I used the proper oil and such, but now the oil indicator light keeps coming on, usually 10 minutes into my drive, flashes and beeps, but never stays on (just flashing). Is this a malfunction in the car computer or is there something wrong with my oil (I rechecked it, clear, full and fine). Thanx
I actually have a 1999 Golf 2.3 V5 (your drop down list doesnt list it). I am also in the united kingdom so your "zip code" wont accept my digits so I have used one from florida.
Its got a faulty injector on cylinder 5. I have some options on ebay to buy a replacement but I need to ensure I get the right one, with the right part number/code.
I just need to know where to find the part number so I buy the correct replacement.
cost for a replacement fuse battery box and a cable
