Question Asked: Engine Oil Pressure Gauge
January 27, 2011, 04:14 PM
Engine oil Pressure gauge-sometimes it sticks at 0; when I tap on the gauge it works and the needle responds like it should; it may work correctly for awhile and it starts up again. I recently had my transmission rebuilt and there were a couple of very small vaccum hoses replaced and after that the guage worked great. I do not think it is the gauge itself.

Problem Reported: Insulation Degrades on Engine Wiring Harness and Leaves Conductors Exposed

<p>The engine wiring can degrade because the insulating material falls off leaving the bare wire exposed. This can cause many problems depending on which wires are exposed and what they touch.</p>
Problem Reported: Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor Causing Erratic Engine Operation and Poor Fuel Economy
May 27, 2010, 11:07 AM
<p>A faulty <a id="ce_5631" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/mass-airflow-sensor">mass air flow (MAF) sensor</a> can cause erratic/rough engine operation and fuel economy issues. Since this sensor measures the actual amount of air entering the motor, when it fails, the <a id="ce_5613" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/engine-control-unit">engine control module (ECM)</a> takes the wrong information and delivers incorrect volumes of fuel to the cylinders.</p>
