Did this happen after the fuel was added? Sounds like you might have gotten bad fuel or water in fuel

Good Tip on Making Your Vehicle Run Better


This applies for any vehicle. Most of us know that gas prices arent exactly cheap right now and so we accomodate by purchasing cheaper gas, but here's some good info you should keep in mind. Fuel currently is mixed differently than it was back when there was the option for leaded gas. the past years low octane unleaded gas was cheap but well mixed and made, so most vehicles ran well off of it. Nowadays the mixing is different, and gas is more expensive. the low grade gas back then was good on cars and the newer gas not so much. our mid grade gas is the same as low grade from then. if you want to make your car run better, avoid going to arco, safeway, or any real cheap gas station. they water down their gas to make it cheaper, and its lower grade than most others, so instead of penny pinching, give your vehicle a break and instead of settling for low grade, pick the mid grade gas from stations like Shell or Chevron. i guarantee you will notice a performance difference and sometimes a gas mileage difference, especially in older vehicles that were built to run on the low to high grade unleaded of their times. its definitely worth the extra 10 cents.

How long will it take for a Nissan Primera gearbox to knock if its put wrong gear box oil


A gearbox will not "knock" in the usual sense, that is said of an engine running on petrol which is a lower octane than it needs. The sound is more of a light rattle or pinging.

If your manual gearbox has had the wrong oil in it for only a week or 2 and has not been thrashed, it is unlikely it has been damaged at all. Just drain and refill with the right grade.

If an auto gearbox, using the wrong oil can cause damage, as it may be far too thick. Drain and refill 2-3 times with the correct grade, running the engine until warm, but not driving around, in between. Then go for a drive without thrashing the car, and see if you can notice anything abnormal.

If you can, take it to an auto trans shop for advice.

Hey guys i have a 2000 intrepid with a used engine just put in. at high rev the check engine light flickers then goes off. Took a trip to West Linn OR from Weiser ID, on the way back the check engine light...


Dysturbedr1,
In a word, NO- don't worry about the gel. There are 2 different kinds of "goop" that is sold for installing new plugs- one is to lubricate the spark plug threads, and the other (which I think you are calling the "gel") is to lubricate the boot and direct fire coilpacks. These are for making it easier to install and replace your plugs and coilpacks....nothing more.
The flickering check engine light is indicative of a misfire condition, which makes sense since your codes said the same thing. The most common cause for this is using a non-premium grade of gasoline or a gas with a high ethanol content (very common in the Mid-West) in a high compression engine such as yours. I had a 2001 Subaru with a high compression 3.0L 6 cylinder engine that did the exact same thing.... it ran fine, but a lower grade of gas would cause a "misfire" code. This is because lower grades of gas burn hotter and the piezo sensors in your engine are very sensitive- the explosion that takes place in a cylinder is much more pronounced with a lower grade gas to the sensor, even though it sounds fine to human ears.
Fill your car with permium, then go back to autozone and have them clear the codes. You will probably not have it happen again unless you go back to a lower gas grade.... and stay away from the Idaho Gasahol!

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

When I was parked with the car running for about five minutes the car just shut off. It started right back up and since I just got it I wasn't sure if that's normal or something I should worry about. also...


On a V8, it won't run on whatever is in the owners manual

You have to use the most expensive high octane

I have no experience with the V6

It should not shut off,that is obvious

Super-unleaded or premium gas for 2006 lexus ls 430


Well, of course premium is HIGHLY recommended, but it is not necessary.
You can use regular grade in your engine and it will not harm it at all. Modern engine management systems have knock sensors that detect lower grade fuel and make the necessary adjustments to your timing and fuel delivery systems.
All you will notice is slightly slower acceleration and a slight drop in engine horsepower.

Hope this helps...

Right gas


Regular unleaded (87 octane) is the correct grade.
