When I turn on my car for the first time of the day, I can drive it for about 5 mins, then I start seeing the RPMS slowly start to bounce up. The longer I drive, and more the meter bounces until the RPM meter is going completely crazy. While this is happening, my car is jerking, and struggling to accelerate, idles roughly, and misfires when driving. It can't even go over 40 mph by this time. It even gets so bad that the car starts to stall, and even struggles to start. But when it cools back down, it starts with NO problems. I've gotten check engine codes, and it's telling me that the O2 sensor was bad..changed that. In fact, changed that, spark plugs, wires, coil packs, throttle body sensor, tested the MAF, passed, and changed the cam shaft position sensor. The same exact problem is happening. I'm running out of options. Definitely would appreciate the help!

My finger doesn't fit in between the tire and rear knuckle so I'm not sure if there's different knuckles do bigger rims or what. Please help me and Thank You.

It was bogging out if you would step in it real quick. I replaced maf sensor for that and it doesn't bog anymore but I was getting engine light replaced gas cap it went awa y then the light again this time the O2 sensor. What's next fuel pressure regulator? I had the throttle body and injectors cleaned out with the pressurized solvent. New plugs and plug wires. New battery optima. Any ideas seems like hard to diagnose

At first it blew the rear main seal so i replaced it and it did it again, fixed it again, i thought, but now its blowin oil out of the dipstick tube, theres way to much oil pressure so what do i fix now i replaced the rear seal and the pcv valve what do i do next please gelp me

All parts are orginally from car just need them put back on

It makes a faint clicking sound once. Windows and stereo power all comes on

They just stopped working all at once

My car is cranking and shutting off and it has had 2500 dollars worth of work in it. They said the idol needed to be adjusted and something was broke on the idol adjuster so I got it fixed and now it wont crank at all the next day. It is popping up codes 0506. They cleared them out I'm hoping my car can be fixed. What could be wrong with it?

Car sat for a month once I put a new battery every light on the car came on and won't go off. Tried to crank it but only tried to turn over and spits out windshield wiper fluid.

Need a visual



Car won't start and won't give any diagnostic report when connected to the machine

when going up steep grade car looses power. you have to let all way off gas until almost at a standstill and then apply gas. sometimes it will go ,m most of the time it just barsly moves.
