SOURCE: Flashing upside down arrow/ slow acceleration

This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck

SOURCE: location of crank sensor 1998 jetta 2.0

It's located near the cam gear on the front of the engine however, the crank sensor, to the right of the oil filter near the bell housing is the part notorious for going out on these cars, and causing a p0322 and/or p0341 code, and sometimes others as well To replace the crank sensor you have to: Support the motor with a floor jack. Remove the starter, 2 of the starter bolts connect to the motor mount. Remove the motor mount from the frame, very easy. Remove the oil filter. That will give you just enough room to get an allen wrench in to remove the bolt holding the sensor in.

SOURCE: Transmission

Lincoln LS's are good for the ignition coils going bad. This mimics a transmission issue trying to accelerate going uphill. Take your car to a LINCOLN dealer and have them do a stress test on the coil pack. It will tell them which one is bad. Also if your car is a 3.9 V8 and was built in the Wixom plant (you can tell by the VIN) google it. All of your coil packs and gaskets are covered for 10 yrs or 100,000 miles whichever comes first. It is listed in the TSB's

Sounds like a malfunctioning egr system. Too much egr gasses at once will lean out the air fuel mixture and cause hesitation in an engine. Just my 2 cents.

Hi I own a 2003 Cadillac CTS I am getting a check engine light error light with code P0128 and my heat is fluxuating up and down I have already installed a themostat. What are my options


A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

1-Low engine coolant level
2-Leaking or stuck open thermostat
3-Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
4-Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
5-Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor

Check coolant level
Check to make sure thermostat is functioning properly Check the Cooling fan Check the ECT sensor Check the IAT sensor If all else fails replace the thermostat

I would look at the crank position (CKP) sensor, its connection and wiring continuity.

Where is it located? the crank sensor is located on the 'back' of the engine on the edge of the flywheel housing above the starter motor mounting.

A common symptom is Hesitant acceleration, acceleration ceiling - Miss-timed ignition due to a faulty CKP signal can be exacerbated by increased engine speed. The engine maybe run evenly at idle but will fail to accelerate properly at higher revs until the engine reaches a power ceiling
How to check? Often the voltage output from faulty CKP sensors declines with temperature rise so a car that seems to be fine initially can become erratic after 20 minutes. If the CKP has died completely there will be very high resistance between the device's electrical connections = open circuit. Furthermore spark delivery to the plugs will be absent. First check that the electrical connection is clean and secure; dirt or corrosion can impair an otherwise healthy CKP signal from getting through. If the CKP suffers from a drop in voltage associated with heat increase this can only be detectable with a voltmeter or oscilloscope with a graphical display; an analogue display voltmeter might just be able to show needle fluctuations due to voltage variation output.

2 pin socket (magnetic - sine wave output). One pin is 'ground' the other is 'signal'. A voltmeter set to 2 volts AC should measure a signal in the 0.2 to 2 volts range on the 'signal' pin.

3 pin socket (Hall effect, magneto - square wave form output). One pin is 'reference' (5volts), one pin is 'ground' and the third pin is 'signal'. A DC voltage should be detectable in the 0.5 to 1.5 volt range from the 'signal' pin.



It is important that the voltage measurement take place at start up when the engine is cold and again, 20 minutes later, when the engine has fully warmed up to operating temperature.


How to fix? Check the wiring for continuity and that the electrical connection is clean and secure. Remove the CKP and clean off any dirt build up on the tip.
If you strongly suspect the crank sensor as being at fault it is a relatively inexpensive device to replace.
