Its idling rough


Hi.

Check idle air control system (valve, hoses and wires). Check air intake and check the sensors installed in the air intake. Check vacuum for leaks.

Those listed are the most common faults causing fast idle in this type of engine.

2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee sometimes won't accelerate after you came to a stop. Took it in to expert and they said the gears, fluid, and filter all looked good. Ended up replacing solinoid in...


Hi.

Tell them to check the throttle transmission sensor. From your general description it looks like the truck is shifting in the wrong gear at low RPM. That is often caused by a defective TPS. The TPS senses the throttle opening. The part is basically a variable resistor mounted on the throttle body. The TPS is tested by reading volts while operating the pedal. Making sure that voltage is in range and that there are no gaps or spikes in voltage changing while the pedal gets pressed slowly and smoothly.

Orange light on dashboard on the left hand side, what is this???????? came on earlier and is not going off!


Hi.

If the light is like the one below, then it is called "Check Engine Light" (CEL).

If the check engine light is on there are codes stored on the ECU (the car's main control module). Do a DTC scanning (diagnostic trouble codes scan) using an OBDII reader. In US the scan can be done for free at the nearest Autozone. The resulting fault codes will tell us about the nature of the problem.

Go to the dealer's place or to the nearest garage and do a code scanning.

Regards.

My 2004 kia rio its overheting just when i stop


Hi.

Check that the fan is starting and working OK. When you drive the air hitting the front of the radiator may compensate a malfunctioning fan. When you stop without the fan working the radiator gets hotter and your dash tells you that there is overheating.

If the fan is working replace the thermostat that may be starting the fan too late. Also check fan fuse and relay.

Do not drive the car in this conditions. Overheating can easily cause damage to the head gasket. An head gasket problem will require a more expensive repair.

Regards.

Went to autozone to get diagnostic for check engine light. after receiving codes, buying items, and going to car, i get in and start.... only it turns over, but no start ..HELP... start error keeps coming...


Hi.

There are many different faults that result in car turning over and not starting. Troubleshooting always starts from checking if problem is ignition/distribution, fuel, or something else. Check if there is spark and check if there is fuel pressure. Please tell us the codes resulting from OBDII scan done at Autozone, and tell us the model and year of the car.

Many thanks.

AIRBAG LIGHT IS ON PROBLEM


Hi.

The airbag light means that a problem with the airbag has been detected and that there is an error code stored in the airbag control module. The code will tell you what is wrong with the airbag. The code can be read at the nearest Lexus dealer, you will be charged a fee of $80.

Sometimes the light can be reset by disconnecting battery for ten minutes. Disconnecting battery will also delete the error codes stored. If the light comes back when you connect back the battery, that means that the problem is still there, and that the airbag control module detected the problem immediately.

Regards.

Car wont hold revs for test how can i tell if its the tps sensor and is it a job thats handy enough


Hi.

The TPS is tested reading volts (or Ohms) while someone else is smoothly pushing down the pedal. The job is not difficult.
Please let me know if you would like to get more details on testing procedure.

Lounge


I understood Pierre , see my second post, unfortunately the lounge is monopolized by experts that want to expose each other solution in the hope to gain some favour or advantage (how?).
This situation became critic since I noticed there was a slight time delay and some expert was having premiums displayed earlier than other.
The fact, as alex explained me, was just a temporary system fault due to bigger work cue, but some expert thought there was a kind of hierarchy among experts and started a race in showing other experts' weaknesses.
I do not care much about rascal, but I considered the Finnish a better person, someone from my same legacy to say.
This with 5 inapps received today had driven me mad.
Well no probs, this is not real life, lets enjoy summer.
Nice to see you around by the way, hope to see Irish druid back.
