Sounds like a main power relay for the ECU, swap it with another relay the same and see if it fixes it. I don't know where exactly it is located on your model, but it should say in the fuse box under the bonnet.

I opened my hood for the first time since I bought. The hood won't close all the way. any suggestions.


If ir is a brand new car there is a safety latch that should hold the hood down. You can pull on the hood to be sure the safety latch is doing its job. Drive the new car take it back to the dealer or where ever you bought it.

They will slam the hood down and smile. Better them breaking the new car than you,'

It may be out of adjustment
You can manually activate the hood latch. There is a hook like assembly that follows the hood latch down when closed. You can activate this assembly by hand. Be sure to release it before attempting to close the hood again.


If it is a used car make sure the handle in the driver side has returned to the home position. If it has I would gently slam the hood down.

There is a rattling noise when the car is idling. when I accelerate it quits.


there are two things that cause this, one is the front engine pulley comes apart, this is very loud and comes from passenger side of engine, the next is the catalytic converter heat shield is broken.

Everytime i accelerate my car it starts making a squeling noise but when i don't accelerate it stops and then i hit the acceleration again and then again noise starts and i can't seem to find the problem!


Are you sure you don't hear anything like a chirping sound when the engine is idling? Have you popped the hood and listened while the engine was idling? Have a friend sit in the driver's seat while you pop the hood, tell them to press the accelerator and then listen for the squeal. I would bet dollars to donuts the problem is the serpentine belt is worn and needs to be replaced.

Car sometimes just quits, or sputters when i slow


You can try this. I had a similar problem with my 89 TC which turned out to be dirty electrical connections under the hood. Locate all the connections under the hood, disconnect, clean, relube and reconnect.
