Code P1456 is an Evaporative System Code & is unrelated to the other 2 codes. It could be as simple as a loose or bad fuel cap however keep in mind that if you find it loose & tighten it the light may not go out right away. If you need further help or need the vehicle diagnosed please feel free to contact us. Thank You Steve Bazar Your Car Specialists 562-802-1332
There are several items that can cause that condition. The most common items are the distributor, ignition module or even the ignition switch. It is usually rather easy to diagnose especially if the condition happens when we are diagnosing it. We would be more than happy to check out your vehicle for you if you would like. Just give us a call and set up an appointment. I hope this helps. Steve Bazar Your Car Specialists 562-802-1332 YourCarSpecialists.com
P1166 is a failure in the heater circuit in the Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor. This code can come up for several different things however it is most commonly due to a bad Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor. There are several different companies that make a sensor for that vehicle. We try to stay away from universal parts, we try to only use a direct fit part by the origional part manufacturer. As long as the part is made for your application you should be able to use it. I hope this helps!! Happy Holidays!!!
Sometimes we have seen the Idle Air Control Valves get plugged up and not cause a light to come on. When they get plugged it can make the idle very irratic and vehicle may even stall when coming to a stop. This has been a common problem for us here in Southern California for a few years....it might be the climate or the fuel but it is common. We would be more than happy to inspect the vehicle for you at no cost and let you know what the costs would be. There are many things that can cause the symptoms that you are having and unfortunately the only way to know exactly what is wrong is to inspect the vehicle. I hope this helps!!!! Have A Very Merry Christmas!!! Steve Your Car Specialists 13903 Marquardt Ave Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670 562-802-1332 www.YourCarSpecialists.com
It sounds like you might have an intake manifold that has a leak. We would be more than happy to inspect it for you at no cost and give you an estimate for repair. Just give us a call and set up an appointment. Thank You Your Car Specialists 562-802-1332
It is not normal. The headlight assemblies need to be water tight because of the type of halogen bulb that they use. The dealer should replace it for you if you are still under warranty....they will however need to see the condensation in the light & may need to take a picture of it that way in order to warranty it for you. I hope this helps. Steve Bazar Your Car Specialists
Based on your description there could be several things causing your issues. The 1st question I would have as well is if you have a check engine light on. If you do then you would need to take the vehicle to a qualified repair facility that can read the code & diagnose that issue. The jumping could be a brake issue or a tire issue or could also be a missfire. The missfire would normally set the check engine light. We would be more than happy to check out your vehicle at no cost and let you know what is needed to repair these issues. Please give us a call or send us an email & we can set up an appointment for you. I hope this helps. Thank You Steve Bazar Your Car Specialists
The A/C sounds like you might have an issue with the blower inside the vehicle. when you say you turn it up does that mean you turn the fan speed up and it doesn't blow any faster?? The puddle by the right front tire....is it clear water or does it have a color??? We would be more than happy to inspect the vehicle at no cost to you and let you know what is wrong. It would be very hard to tell you if it had anything to do with the oil change or brakes without inspecting the vehicle. Feel free to give ua a call at 562-802-1332. Thank You
The upper control arm is part of your front suspension - We would be more than happy to inspect them at no cost to see what needs to be replaced - if anything - and what the costs would be. Did they tell you why the control arms need replaced??? For instance the bushings were bad or the ball joint is bad?? Please give us a call for an appointment & we can get it looked at for you.
It sounds like you may have a defective turn signal/headlight switch. We would be more than happy to inspect your vehicle at no cost so that you would know what is wrong & how much it would cost for repair. You can reach us at 562-802-1332 or by going to www.YourCarSpecialists.com. Thank You
