Yes, or your altenator may be bad. most autoparts stores will test it for free, but you'll have to take it out your self

Why does car die when removing oil cap and how to fix it


Hi Matt:
There is a good possibility that your PVC valve is not functioning, so when you remove the oil cap. the vacuum line is letting way too much air into the carb/ontake manifold.
My suggestion?
Clean or replace the PVC valve.

Car won't start


why ignore the CEL??????
you cross over the spark wires. lost firing order.
its not PVC but is due.
sure, lost spark, lost spark time, crossed wire.
if spark is good try test fuel
clean the EGR, if it sticks open car will never idle fast.
and will stall.
clean the ISC do the ECU can in fact now control idle.

you are are on track, most here are not.
you did a tune up, that is good , and is first.
bad fuel, car parked for year, dead?
now the 1 question, (after it runs)
can your happy right off save the stall
only this counts..... 1st....

check firing order now that wires are scrambled.
then check for spark on all 4 cyl spark wire ends.
then if spark is good,
and compression, good, 150 not 80psi
you do know this is and inteference engine right? and if not
fresh timing belt the engine will grenade. for sure.
dont listen to dorks telling you, mine didnt, they are idiots.
if you like Russian roulette ? and $3000 new motors are joy?
then skip the belt.

that finishes off a 60k turn up, spark , filters and da belt.
then spark timing.
then fueling.

all the fuel in the world is useless on a dead motor or dead spark'.

fueling is last.
if motor and spark are good, then yes, fueling
try test fuel (spary)
if that works for duration of spray
then check fuel pressure
that be next.
and more... ask

I have a 1995 gmc jimmy. When I purchased it (used) the check ingine light was on. I was told that it was checked out but there was no problem with the vehicle light was just on (bull). The vehicle ran bad...


Try replacing oil pressure switch. Your oil pressure switch controls fuel pump. (safety issue) in case of roll over or accident so fuel pump doesn't run while engine stalled or of.

Had work done on my car (36K miles on the car): oil change, new plugs, new plug wires, new dist cap, new dist rotor, fuel filter, pvc valve, and brake work. Now it runs like ****. rough running and exhaust...


Sounds like a fuel mix problem possibly the oxygen sensor. If it ran like this immediately after the new plugs, I would check to make sure all the plug wires are on the right plugs and secure. Good luck!

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage that starts then dies


There are a few things for you to do to get it running right. Any fuel that may have been in the system would have turned in to varnished and needs to be cleaned out of your fuel system. You can buy a can of Sea Foam from the Auto Parts Store and follow the instructions. THe other thing to is to buy a can of throttle body cleaner and clean out the throttle body and Idle air control valve which would cure the stalling problem. Start with that and give it a good run on the road and then do an oil and filter change to ge all the water condensation contamination out of the engine and also to the transmission fluid and filter change too. Good luck and this should na a good start to getting your car running 100% again.

Just fixed the valve covers and now the car wont stay crunk up


battery is probably low.when trying cranking for a period of time battery get weak thats why battery light on.charge battery.to see if it hold a charge.when battery fully charged it should be 12.5 volts.with engine running alternator out put should be 13.5 to 14.5.if not replace the alternator.or have it tested.when replacing valve covers make sure your pvc valve.in valve cover in place if not your car will stall out and idle rough.your oil leak on inside of your car from a leaking oil line to oil pressure gauge.thats why your oil light is on.
