My toyota hilux 2007 model starts well produces alot of white smook idles roughly when i scan i will have this code p1290 so What do i do


Without looking at any computer code I will tell you that is definately in the emissions of the vehicle, try have the sensor replaced that is associated with the fuel system, there are several sensors on vehicles, but if it putting off alot of white smoke its running too rich for one and 2 it probaby gets better when the vehicle is warmed up the motor, definately check the exhaust of the vehicle too hope this helps

I have a 1998 dodge stratus. 2.4 L 4 cyl engine. smoke began coming from the back aarea of engine just in front of dashboard; radiator full. not running hot. oil level ok. no leak. no light indicato


Could be oil dripping from the valve cover onto the exhaust pipe.
One drip can cause alot of smoke when it hits the pipe.
Could be power steering fluid too.

Where do i locate speed sensor? 98 cavalier


Speed sensors are usually located on the differential in RWD cars and on the transaxle (which combines the transmission and differential) in FWD cars. The cavalier is a FWD (front wheel drive) car, so the speed sensor is located on the transaxle.
The exact location in the 98 cavalier is behind the engine toward the passenger side mounted onto the transmission with one nut and it has a plug with 2 wires on it. Can be easily accessed by jacking up the car and removing the passenger side front wheel.

CANT FIND WHERE THE SPEED SENSOR IS NO MY 1995 OLDSMOBILE AURORA


hi , their is two different speed sensors on your vehicle one is the input speed sensor which is inside the transmission and the transmission will have to be removed to replace it the other one s the output speed sensor is located directly above the passenger side trans-axle shaft. your input sensor is the sensor which tells the transmission when to shift and the output speed sensor tells the speedometer what it should display and both those parts are fairly cheap they are around 15-25 dollars but just remember if your input speed sensor is bad it is gonna cost you a minimum of 1000 dollars to have a mechanic fix as the transmission needs to be removed hope this is what you needed

Wont shift gears when in drive


There are actually 2 transmission speed sensors, both are located on the front of the transmission. The input speed sensor is located just above the electronic solenoid pack and just below the transmission cooler line connections. The output speed sensor is located at about the same level but 6 or 8 inches further to the right, closer to the drivers side tire, just left of the transmission side oil pan. I can't remember but I think the 2 sensors are different and will not interchange. If I remember correctly the input sensor is the one that typically went out most often. You'll have to jack up the vehicle to access the sensors from under the car. Make sure to use jack stands to support the car after you jack it up. You will not lose any fluid when you remove either sensor. Be careful there are is alot of wiring and hoses in the area and there is very little room to work.

Transmission input output speed sensors


The speed sensor is on the tailshaft of the transmission,on the passenger side of the car,it has 3 wires. The output sensors are located on the front of the transmission about mid-way up the housing & only have 2 wires. Note the output sensors are not responsible for vehicle speed. Only the output shaft speed is recorded. They are for finding the correct cvi(clutch volume index) only. If you have a cvi issue,the transmission is toast.

Oil leak


What is the mileage on your car? Is your engine a 2.5 L?
Clean the bottom side of your engine with engine degreaser first to determine exactly where it's leaking. Run your engine at idle speed for fifteen minutes, then inspect the bottom towards the front of engine. If you see a drip on the drivers side center, don't waste your time or money replacing the crankshaft seal or oil pump / pump seals. I have recently done that and still have a leak........coming from where......who knows! I have posted a question on this site, hopefully someone can answer for both of us. I know we're not the only ones with the same problem on this year and model.
