Fuel. My best guess is that the fuel pump is somewhat clogged and when you turn the ignition on it will pressurize the fuel system, but when you start the car the fuel pump cant keep the pressure in the fuel lines to keep the engine running, so it stops. this would also most likely be that source of your check engine light telling you that something is wrong with the fuel system.

2004 turbo desiel hilux Kzn 165 noise in engine when under load noise going at around 2000 rpm.

very possible that the noise is combustion ( piston slap) before the required time from a faulty injector that is passing fuel uncontrolled
at lower rpms it is a problem but at higher rpms the fuel being passed may be the required amount or the engine is revving to fast to hear it
I would suggest that you take it to an accredited diesel pump shop for a proper diagnosis , quote and have the injectors serviced

My rpms seem to be running high on my 2003 grand am. it sounds like my engine in revved up really high. why is this?

it seems a coolant temperature sensor may be bad, reading low temp all the time causing rpm and rich fuel mixture

Battery drains while sitting

Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to:
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

88 volvo 4 cylinder turbo station wagon. It idles at 3000-4000 rpms. If I hit the gas pedal quickly. It idles down for a few seconds then back up high.

It sounds like a good size air leak somewhere in the intake system. Check all the vacuum lines for cracks or loose connections. Check for gasket leaks by spraying brake parts cleaner along the intake manifold mating surfaces and listen for an increase in engine rpm . Don't use carb cleaner for this, or you could end up with an engine fire.

First check for holes or disconnected air inlet hoses, that will give the sensor/meter a problem so it cannot send the correct signal.
