I bought my car it needed a battery and a starter so that was put in. Now my mechanic say it will start but I need to have it reprogrammed. How much will that cost. And where can I get it done
I asked a question earlier about when driving my car and depressing the accelerator quickly there would be a lot of hesitation and I would have to back off of the gas. Then one day it started hesitating all the time, except when idling. I didn't have any codes, but you suggested it could be the MAF sensor. So I purchased MAF cleaner and cleaned the sensor and replaced the K&N air filter with a regular filter. This made a tremendous improvement. The only hesitation now is when out of gear and idling or when driving and gas is applied quickly there is a slight, momentary hesitation, but then the car runs smoothly. Should I clean the throttle body and if so, I would appreciate any pointers on doing this. Any other suggestions? Thank you!
At first my car would hesitate when cruising along and I would have to accelerate quickly, but all of a sudden it does it now when just starting out slowly. The vsc and check engine lights have come on several times, when climbing steep grades it seems. I remove the battery cables and the lights clear until I put a load on the engine. The lights are not on now, but it cuts out all the time when applying gas. The car starts and idles fine. Thank you!
Please help
