a week ago i change my alternator with a new one and the battery lights at my dashboard came back, in the morning when i go to work after 10 minutes of driving the lights went off and it happens the last 2 days and today its showing again when i went to lunch . auto zone did check on it and tech said both alternator and battery is in good shape. i saw an open wire connected on the negative cable of my battery and is attached to the body side of the vehicle and i wrapped it with electrical tape and re-attache it, i don't know if this something to do with the lights coming out. please advise and thanks in advance.
I have an intermittent "check engine light" that comes on periodically, and have noticed a decrease in my mileage lately.... is there a connection?
All other lighting has not been affected, and the low beams go out I use my high beams until the low beams come back on, and then it stays on. This has been going on for the past three days and only once at night and nothing during the daytime. No messagees appear in my display window. What is going on and how big of a problem is it?
we make sure gas cap is on but at times it works and at times it stays on and then it just goes off. Car has 55,000miles. and we have it serviced regularly. Noticed that after a dip or bump, this happens.
It already is leaking.
Last night, they came on and then later they went off by themselves. I keep headlights on auto, which come on while driving. This "mystery" has happened before, once several months ago, and then about a week ago. I had to replace my battery,so I would appreciate any help offered.
Car starts first time once in a while and then it won't start. Once it does start it runs perfectly. Thought it was a fuel pump but still same problem after new pump installed
Had intake boot replaced. Still makes noise periodically. Doesn't affect driving/engine performance.
This vibration was thought to be tires, had two replaced, no change. Had everything rebalanced, no change. Any suggestions.
I get the Code P0496 after refueling. The engine also has difficulty starting immediately after refueling. I replaced the gas cap and went through two tanks of gas before the code reappeared.
there appears to be "cupping" wear on my tires
I'm at a loss, it shut down on the interstate three months ago and hasn't started since. I replaced the cps and cam sensor the fuel filter and have pressure at the rail but no spark at none of the plugs, all the fuses are good and grounds are tight. What could be causing the no spark?
we thought at first was my motor mounts but its not its actually some kind of bushings, you can see the piece go n jump as wheel is turned n u rev engine in fact the rubber fell out of wat ever piece is needing to be replaced.
i have never changed one need help.
replaced ignition switch and starter.starter turns but cuts out just before it can start.
