Check your EGR Valve and clear the passages if the first solution on the 02 Sensors doesn't solve it.

May be a short in the wires that go to the O2 sensors. What I mean is just check to see if somthing in the road might have snagged one of these lower hanging wires underneath . look at them close.

I have a 2006 Caddy Van, 1.9tdi. When accelerating it will sometimes shudder, almost like a rev limiter, plus loses power / cuts out at low speeds.


I'd start with a thorough check of all your engine area harness connections making sure the multi plugs are properly home. Then any ground cables for a good clean connection. Has it had any work recently that could lead to a trapped part of the harness? I can't say whether the poor running is part of the electrical gremlins but as most engines have lots of electrical devices, who knows.

Flashing service engine soon light flashes then shut off


Check engine lights have been used for over 30 years and yet most people do not know what they are used for.
The check engine light tells the driver a problem exists with the performance or emissions of the engine. Not the actual engine itself.
Anytime something happens that could affect emissions or performance, the light comes on and a trouble code is set in the computer memory. The driver then has to have the computer scanned for those codes to know what component to have checked.

Flashing check engine light


The check engine light is telling the driver the computer has a problem with something that can affect performance or emissions.
The problem is serious when the light is flashing.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

I just replaced th fan clutch and water pump on my 2004 durango 4.7 and when i step on the gas now tach needle jumps up like crazy and the fan sounds like a jet and the engine seems slugish


The fan clutch may be different from the original, they use oil inside to vary the speed most of the time. Some are more affected by air temp than others.
As far as performance goes, is the check engine light on ?

Hi my kia sedona CHECK ENGINE light comes on now then. what could be wrong, can it affect performance.


Ususally when they come on and go out peroidically it is fuel related. Low octane fuel will give a bad oxygen sensor reading triggering the light for short periods. (Modern engines are recommended to use mid to high octane -grade fuel) Also a bad gas cap seal or not tightening it properly after fueling can cause that. (Manufacterers recommend replacing the gas cap every 2-3 years) Whatever it is , it is affecting your engine performance to some degree or the light would'nt come on. See if you can get a code out of the computer, that will give you a better indication of a potential problem.

Uncle put new brake pads on vehicle (he worked on front and back brakes) and now the speedometer doesn't work, the abs light is on, check engine light, and the break light is on. what could have happened ....


Check for disconnected ABS sensors. The front sensors in the front are located next to the axle shafts. The rear sensor is located on the rear differential housing itself on top, in the middle. The ABS is monitored by the computer for performance. The ABS kicks on when the vehicle comes from a certain speed to a dead stop, keeping the wheels from locking up. That could be the reason for the speedometer not working. Or it could be a bad speed sensor. Both can also trigger the check engine light because it is monitored by the computer. The brake light usually comes on due to low fluid level. It can trigger the light, but not be low enough to impact brake performance. I hope this helps.

My oil pressure light comes on at very low speed on 96 camry


Take a gauge and check you oil pressure. If its not low then change the pressure sensor. If the pressure varies and the pressure is not where it is supposed to be, then drop the oil pan and look in the bottom of the pan. If you see slivers of metal then the bearings are going out. Eather the cam bearing, rod bearing, or main bearings.
