Questions Answered by Ocello's Automotive Center
When the "d" light flashes it usually indicates a current malfunction monitored by the transmission control unit. I would recommend having the cars systems scanned to see if any trouble codes have been stored. Did the car seem to shift properly? Did it go into the final gear of overdrive? Rob Ocello
I noticed today my car is still consuming ...
Eddy, Hello, I'm confused, did you replace the canister purge valve to help you increase your gas mileage? The canister purge valve is part of your vehicles Evaporative fuel system. In short this system allows the harmful hydrocarbons produced by raw fuel to be filtered out before being released to our atmosphere. This means it cleans up the gas fumes released in your gas tank. It does not effect your fuel economy. Yes you should reset it. your car however may reset itself after some driving and passed purge valve monitor tests. If your consuming too much fuel you could check, the condition of your air filter, your spark plugs, clean the fuel injectors, and monitor the function of your oxygen sensors which help control fuel management. I hope that helps. Let me know Rob Ocello-Ocello's Automotive Center
Several possibilities here. Your car has a sensor that monitors the position of your throttle (gas pedal position). One of its purposes is to shut off the air conditioning compressor when your under "wide open throttle" ie: getting on the freeway, passing a vehicle, or going up a hill. This allows your car to have maximum power. After you release the pedal the air should come back on cold again. We could perform a position test on that sensor to verify its staying in range.
