Hi the oxygen sensor only kicks in when engines hot not on a cold engine what you need to do is get some one to find the buzzing noise then get back with some sort of discription yates210456

Recently bout three months my engine oil light

When an engine oil light comes on, this is the 911 call to you that your engine is having an emergency in that there is not enough oil to lubricate the moving parts of the motor that keep it operating. Those knocking noises that you heard were the dying breath of your once dependable Ford engine; which is now junk. Because you "didn't have the time to pick up oil", you will now have to find the time to either replace or completely rebuild the engine. The Expedition has a V-8 so expect to pay at least $3500 for a new motor.

There is a cold start "sequence" which is suppose to reset the engine controls as if you had a choke. This sequence is triggered by water temperature sensors on the engine.

This sensor is different from the one operating the dash gauge. It is probably stuck on a "hot" setting and the engine controls do not reset.

My 2001 ford expedition won't keep runing when it's cold I have to keep my foot on the gas or it dies until the engine warms up. What is going on?

Your vehicle needs a signal from a Temperature sensor to activate the "Cold start routine". The cold start routine is a modern day version of a choke used in the old days. This process will make the engine speed up by enriching the fuel mix and resetting the engine timing.

The problem is that your engine is stuck in the normal "Lean" run position for better mileage and lower emissions. There can be 2 temperature sensors in each vehicle with only one dedicated to operating the engine controls. The other sensor would operate the dash gauge or light.

When the Temperature sensor is replaced, the system should work again. If it does not respond, there could be a connector problem in the PCM unit, but it is less likely.

The onboard diagnostics would generally monitor the PCM, but the Temperature sensor is usually an unmonitored device.

Please rate my info.

My Kia Sephis keeps dying and wont start sometimes

That Engine fuse you are replacing is the engine fuse,The nearest ground that can short that out is the oxygen heater circuit of the catalytic convertor,it may be the oxygen sensor itself,but more than likely its the harness you will have to open the harness and inspect for a rub through wire

2000 Toyota Camry When the engine is cold and the car is started, the car engine usually vibrates ans shakes. I changed the plug and the problem stopped, but after a few weeks the problem started again. ...

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that you have a bad O2 sensor. If the O2 sensor is faulty the car may shake and there's noticeable bad emission odor. I strongly suggest that you have it replaced. You can find this sensor on the exhaust manifold.

Do you have an erratic idle? If you do then the MAF sensor must be replaced as well. A bad idle can cause the vehicle to shake. Keep me posted regarding the progress.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I think these codes are indicating a fault with your catalytic converter. The 02 sensors are each not returning the correct values to the ECM, causing a "suspect the 02 sensors" fault code.

The TPS sensor (or Throttle Position Sensor) is bad locate it and replace, it is located where the rubber air intake hose meets the intake manual, look for a wireand plug, also to make sure it is this sensor bring the truck to an Auto Zone and have them read any stored trouble codes for free this should confirm the faulty TPS.
