REPLACED ALTENATOR TENTIONER USED BELT DRESSING . WHAT COULD BE NEXT
and the next day I got new plug/clip put on alternator and the battery light still flashing
When I first start it, it idles rough and when it warms up, it still idles rough but not as rough as when I start it. When driving it, it runs perfect and still gets good gas mileage. I have replaced the MAF sensor. I have checked for vacuum leaks but cannot detect any. Any help will be appreciated. Bob
Its stating pad lamp inoperative. What is a pad lamp?
I had the camshaft synchronizer replaced due to a chirping sound coming from that location; however, the sound has returned. My thought is that the oil pump isn't working properly thereby, not distributing the oil to that location. Is that a possibility or is it something else?

Approximately 2 times a week when I start my car the theft light blinks rapidly for 30 seconds or so then blinks at a slower pace for a minute or so then goes off completely. The car is starting fine with no problems so I assume the chip in my key is being recognized. Any suggestions as to what could be causing this to happen on an irregular basis and how it can be corrected?
Just stop blowing cold air. Been working fine til now. Not making any noise etc. No cool air.
what makes it scrub when you turn the steering wheel
When I crank up the first time of the day it idles to about 3000 RPMs and then eventually goes down. Then when I put it in Drive and press the gas to go. It seems to work fine but doesn't want to shift out of 1st gear easily. It shifts after it hits 4000 RPMs... Only does it with the first gear first time cranking up for the day. Changed the Transmission filter and fluid. Fluid and filter was black and has medal shavings. Car is over 230,000 miles. I get great gas mileage. What could this be? I really need to know if I need to replace something. I'm in college and need a dependable car.. Thank you!
water is leaking under the right side of the car, it looks like right between the coolant box and belts. I ran the heat this morning and 5 mins later this happend
I have a 1995 ford Taurus which broke down a few weeks ago. I have owned this auto for three months has run fine. On a 65 degree day it will only try to start maybe even turn over, but will not run. On a 35 to 40 degree day will start and run for 30 seconds tops, in this time you can rev engine up but still hint a small hesitation, loses power quickly starts to choke up or just starts to die and shuts off. You can try to start it again only tries. I smelled the exhaust and is really rich, but doesn't smell loaded like raw gasoline, just not clean. I put fuel filter on seem to have fuel flow and pressure, did change out fuel pressure regulator didn't change. I do disconnect battery for EEC reset. I have tried to start it with the MAF, and the two other sensors on the throttle body, not all at one time, but the car doesn't start. I disconnected the sensor that is inline with PVC EGR which this sensor is vacuum and electric. Could it possibly be the cold allows the exhaust to be cold and i the 25seconds warm the exhaust up and o2 sensors be defective and not allowing the engine to run. Does the warm day have any reliance?? and does the warming of the exhaust have any relevance?? or do you have any information to help- find a remedy for this situation sensors, relay, distributor, exhaust?? please help if you ca give me a professional diagnosis. This car doesn't give a code, but does that mean a scanner won't work?? do I get some one to come with a snap on diagnostic machine?? Thank You, Larry & Crystal Baker :(
when the digital display shows me I have say 10 miles left to E, and we are all broke these days, so I put like $10 in gas in it & it doesn't "register" on the electronic gage however the E-F arm will move up a bit. Why doesn't it register?
first time it happened was after a lot of stop and go traffic then when I was waiting to make a turn the oil light flashed at the same time
