Why does the oil light come on and stays on?
my car will crank up and run perfectly fine and it will drive for a lil while, when the temp gauge gets about halfway, and I come to a stop light the engine will turn off. the "check engine" light is on also as well. when it shut off, I let it sit for about 30min.-1hour and it will crank back up and run but it will began to overheat and when I come to a stop sign or a red light the engine will turn off again , I'm not sure whats wrong with my vehicle, can anybody help me , the battery is good , the alternator is fine , I just had my power steering pump replaced , when it blew the was oil all over the place, but eventually was burned off , the serpentine belt is good. can somebody please help me.
Parking brake location?
Aftee i pull ovee and let it sit it will start right up. What can it be? Thermostat gage says its not hot.
My 95 prizm idle bounces up and down. I changed the throttle position sensor and it still does it. What am i doing wrong or missing to fix this problem?
They were working night before in the morning turned on car and all for windows never worked again
so every now and again the ratlling comes on.
Started with my gas pedal vibrating obnoxiously when on the highway going over 65 mph, especially uphill and/ot accelerating.
Then it was the whole car. Had the struts, coils, and mounts replaced. New tires.
Still does it, though slightly less.
When I start it at a cold start it runs just fine, I drive a few miles and then either I press the gas and all I get is a raving engine and no motion of force, or it does move, practically having a violent shaking seizure and then no motion of force just engine rev. No warning lights show, and it only does this when it's hot or already ran once about an hour or so prior.
Please help me.
