    You should probably go see a mechanic, especially before your daughter starts driving school in Oxnard. You wouldn't want her to get in an accident right when she starts learning to drive. It could traumatize her.

1999 pontiac firebird clicking noise


don't ram it into a pole, that seldom helps the ticking.
get a pressure test done to be sure the oil pump is functioning as it should, motor flush is not always a good idea but if it helped then it probably didn't get rid of all of the sludge, if a lifter collapses, it will always tick no matter what you do, if it is an oil pressure issue the tick can come and go.
one thing to consider, sludge happens from poor maintenance, it can hide other issues, clearing out all of the sludge can cause an engine knock if the bearings are worn.

U can go to any autozone, kragen or other chain auto parts stores and they will run the trouble code test for free, let me know what they find if anything, this also may be a fuel pressure problem

Car shuts off for no reason when I shift


It sounds like you have a bad Ignition Control Module. When they are cool they work fine, but when they get hot, they **** out.

98 MercuryMountaineer..It Runs for about 5 Mins Then Cuts Off


it's a default sensor to keep from blowing motor, you need to check your radiator for leaks. If that doesn't fix the problem , change your alternator. :)

Car keeps shutting off


After extensive research I have found that in 10 out of ten cases it was the E.C.M or in other words the computer for the vehicle is faulty. You can thank dodge for this problem. What happens is they put a Temperature sensitive device in an area that gets unbelievably hot. Then the Computer overheats and shuts down. In most cases the control panel in the vehicle where the odometer is says "No Bus"
The only way to fix this problem is to put a new computer in. DO NOT buy one from the dealership they are too pricey. Get on off of Ebay. For the extremely mechanical Savy you can do what I did in my durango. I carefully cut the tape away from the main harness then marked everything and cut the harness drilled a hole through my firewall (Just be careful where you drill) fed the harness through and reconnected my computer and mounted it under the dash so when it is extremely hot here in arizona the A/C Keeps the computer cool. With this method I have NEVER had this problem happen to me.
Just don't do this if vehicle is under warranty it will violate the ciditions of the warranty. Hope this helps. I have seen this problem posted to other sites and am just trying to let everyone know what it is and How to fix it.

try replacing the crankshaft position sensor - it's a common problem on the 88's and is only about a $30 part

I have a problem


I've heard this is a very common problem with the 88's, and the best research I've found so far suggests that you should replace the crankshaft position sensor - it's only about $30, but requires a little work.

While driving car tach goes way up and car almost shuts off and cruise light came on and then it went off after giving some gas . got an engine light on and got a code 12 54 and 55.


My problem was similar. It would want to cut off while driving but keeps going. Had fuel pump replaced same thing. had throttle body cleaned and computer codes put back in. Same thing. No one figured what it was till it didn't start one day then start the next day the code told dealer it was the crank sensor. Friend has same car with the same problem it was the crank sensor.
