Trouble codes- What to do with them?

When I am driving sometimes my car spits back and forth were I think it may stall. So I went to checkers to get a diagnostic test and I got codes P0102, P0128, P0440 and P0716. I'm not sure what they are or if this is a common problem in Buicks. I have 219,000 miles on this puppy!! (most of them highway miles.)
I would like to know where to start with these problems?

P0102 - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor Circuit Low Frequency, clean inside the of MAF sensor with spray brake clean, if code returns replace the Mass Airflow sensor (MAF)
P0440 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System,
poss loose or leaking gas cap
P0128 - Coolant Thermostat Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature,
replace the thermostat, engine running cold
P0716 - Input Speed Sensor Circuit Intermittent, this is a problem with the VSS, vehicle speed sensor, replace it.
Clear all the codes after above repairs and drive a few days, then retest system for codes.

Have you run a fault code test through the diagnostic connector port? Go to any Autozone parts store and ask for an OBD2 fault code test, it is free, write the codes down and repost or add them in the comment box below.

03 gran prix..dies while at idle or driving just like you turned switch off.have to hit neutral and restart.sometimes fires right up..other times have to work the ignition back and forth til it starts


You need to do a fault code test, any Autozone or Oreilly parts store will test it for free. DO NOT BUY ANY PARTS BASED ON WHAT A PARTS PERSON SUGGESTS, they are not trained technicians and will just cost you money and frustration.

My 1990 Chevy k1500 5.7L It will hesitate,spit,sputter even stall. I did a full tune up new spark plugs/wires, cap/rotor new VSS, fuel filter, put good gas in it, injector cleaner in it. Help


FUEL PRESSURE MUST BE IN THE 35-45 LB RANGE TO OPERATE PROPERLY. CHECK YOUR FUEL PRESSURE AND THEN FUEL QUANTITY BEING DELIVERED. YOU MAY HAVE A FAULTY FUEL PUMP WHICH IS VERY COMMON

I have 2000 Oldsmobie Bravada that spits and sputters every time I hit the gas. I've had an induction, transmission flush, tune up (all new wires and spark plugs), new EGR valve, new throttle position...


I went through this problem, and did everything you did, even the SeaFoam. Turns out, the new distributor caps I bought were defective. I switched it out to another brand, worked for a day and then sputtered again. I read somewhere that (FOR THIS VEHICLE) aftermarket caps and rotors aren't manufactured correctly, causing arcing. Switched the cap and rotor to AC Delco brand, and all ran good, going on 1 year now with no problems.

Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Electrical problems with 2006 Nissan maxima


I would start with checking the computer for trouble codes.
Sounds like a bad connection in the dash wiring or key switch, but the trouble code might steer you in the right direction.
