We checked a few things but are not sure. It hesitate to stop sometimes and jerks when you put it in gear to drive. The muffler noise it makes is lowered when driving and it accelerate but does not go pass 30-40 mph. The more stops it makes while driving it slowly gets worse and it smokes in the back of the engine.
vehicle goes into fail safe , and hen I would have to switch off and restart inorder to reset the PCM
I downshift but it still gets slower & slower. I had to drive in 2nd at about 20 mph on a 6 to 7% uphill grade. Doesn't use oil, runs great in the city.
Already did the timing on it more then ones all I fixed was the water pump on it..
if the water pump, front engine seals, drive belts,idlers, and tensioner along with the belt are in good shape and still good do I have to still pay to get it fixed?
The drivers side of the motor. Now a week later I'm driving down the road as I slow down to a yield sign the car dies!! It will turn over but not crank! Please help me ???
The air conditioner doesn't work due to an electrical problem. The compressor and relay work fine.
I've tried different crank position sensors but cannot locate the cam position sensor which sounds like the proble. Im lost
Could someone give a straight answer on the question, I already know the fan does not work, I just need to know the costs parts, labor, taxes and time involved in doing this repair.
I understand there are a few air flow sensors involved in the operation of signaling the PCM to allow fuel to flow to the injectors. Would the most likely be the EGR Valve Control Solenoid/motor, or would the Vacuum Control Valve be likely to fail.
New coil pack, plugs, wires. Still running rough and didn't help. What else can be the problem?
