My wife has just had a problem with her Megane failing to start
and I have been told it is somthing to do with her locking system on the car.
Apparently it immobilses the engine.
If you have the card key try locking and unlocking the car again, it worked
for my wife.

2001 Eddie Bauer Edition Explorer 4.0 E starting/idle problem. This problems surfaced a couple months ago and has only happened 4 times. It won't start unless you hold the throttle about 3/4ths the way...

There is a Cold Start Routine which sets the idle higher and enriches the fuel mix when the engine is cold. The water temperature triggers this routine. Most Fords will use 2 water sensors, 1 for the dash gauge and 1 for the engine computer. I would change the water sensor.

If changing the water sensor does not help, try a TPS, throttle position sensor. Disconnect the electric connector and put an ohmmeter on the sensor. See if there is smooth change in Ohms from closed throttle to where you have to put the throttle to start the cold engine. The TPS is a variable resistor and may have a dead spot when the parts are cold.

Have you thought about your charging system? The initial load on the Alternator is a combination of all the accessories that are on in the vehicle, plus recovery from starter draw, plus any drop in battery performance from when it was last run. Your Alternator works the hardest in the first few minutes its on to rebuild the battery charge and run everything. The higher RPM is needed at start-up.

The EGR could be dirty and not fully seated in the fixture. This would vent the engine. Sometimes the EGR is locked out until the O2s warm up, or the passing gear is demanded(gives more power).
You can also spray mist the Intake gasket with water while the engine is running to see if you can pick up on any leaks shown by a RPM change.

I hope you find my solutions very helpful and that one of them solves your problem.

Good Day! i have a 2005 Saturne vue and im running in to this problem..i'll be driving down the road for a while and after and 30 min or so the engine will loose all power and die after 30sec or so when i...

Check the crankshaft position sensor. Old oil (infrequently changed) can foul them up. The sensor has to "see" certain points on the crankshaft. Dirty or bad oil can prevent the "seeing" from occuring. You can turn the key all you want, it will crank but never start. Sometimes, when the sludge settles, it will run again. If this solves your problem, you seriously need an engine flush and then frequently change your oil. Clean oil is more importaint than most people realize. hope this helps.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish

If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.

Reving High and Won't Start

I have an idea... why don't you have a 'qualified Hyundai Technician' diagnose the problem?.. First of all, you describe an Engine Management System problem. I assume it a 1.6 DOHC engine. There are numerous suspect causes for your problem. Example, Idle speed actuator, Cam Position Sensor, Throttle Position Sensor, Injectors, Crank Position Sensor, Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor, Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, Heated Oxygen Sensors, Mass Airflow Sensor (this one's my favorite.. along with Throttle position sensor), Intake Air Temperature Sensor, and the list goes ON... vacuum leaks, throttle body problems, PCV problems, Oh!.. and let's not forget plugs, wires, coils, fuel pump problems, etc. The one most often found as cause for excessive rev is the ECU (Engine Control Unit). Try this out... disconnect the battery. Take the the pos (+) cable and connect/touch it to the neg (-) cable for 60 seconds.. then reconnect the cables to the battery. Tell me what happens after you drive it for awhile. If it's still acting up... take it in for diagnosis.
