Question about Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have a used ECHO PB620 backpack blower that has started losing power intermittently---like it's either experiencing insufficient fuel flow . I just changed the dirty air filter, but this didn't help. It will blow fine and very strong for a few minutes, but when it gets good and warmed up, the engine acts like it's smothering, unless I back off the throttle and let it rest a second or two at idle.

Hi all! 2000 subaru legacy outback has over 150k -started to intermittently "lose power"


Sounds like a fuel restriction problem. Start with fuel filter, then fuel lines-rusted/hole in line-SUCKING air or fuel pump on the fritz!

I have a 2006 Chevy Colorado..Check engine light on and code 171 came up. Oxygen sensor replaced as was gas cap..Still on..What else needs repairing to fix this??


Trouble Code: P0171

Fuel Trim Too Lean

Possible Causes:


The current cell can be observed using a scan tool.The system will go lean if an injector is not providing enough fuel.A lean condition could be present during high fuel demand due to a fuel pump not pumping enough fuel, plugged fuel filter or a restricted fuel line.Insufficient fuel in the tank or low fuel pressure may cause this DTC to set. Refer to Fuel System Diagnosis .Review the Failure Records with a scan tool. If an intermittent condition is suspected, refer to Intermittent Conditions .

2001 impala starts and dies It usually starts the second time and stays running. also stalls intermittently while going down the road. have replaced mass air flow sensor, crank sensor, removed throttle...


this sounds like a fuel issue, sometimes can be difficult to diagnose because its obviously being intermittant. whether its a fuel pressure regulator or the pump itself, i feel the most likely cause is the pump itself losing prime and thats why you have to try 2 times or more to crank because you are creating pressure from the fuel tank everytime you try to crank, this would also be a possibility as to the shut off if its getting hot than shutting down and than your able to start it back up. i would put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle and watch my fuel pressure readings to make sure they are staying true. if the fuel pump checks out than it will be an ignition or computer issue, i hope this helps

Loss of engine power at high rpm 2000 au falcon 6cyl auto


Two of the possibilities are insufficient spark advance (check the centrifugal and vacuum advance mechanisms in the distributor) and insufficient fuel flow (check fuel pump, also make sure there are no restrictions in the fuel filter, line or hangups in the carburetor float valve).

1996 ford windstar 3.8 codes say that cylinders 4 and 6 are misfiring,system too lean bank 1,egr flow insufficient. whats up?


Cylinder misfiring hapens when ignition coil is bad and bad spark plugs.
System to lean is usualy when fuel pump lose pressure or you have blown gasket on intake manifold. Check fuel pressure first.
When EGR flow is insufficient there is EGR valve, sensor and solenoid, could go bad., so you have multiple codes P0171, P0304,P0306, P0401

When I turn on the fan for the cabin, it does not start blowing air as it should. I am guessing it is an issue with the fan / blower mechanism. Wiring could be the primary issue because sometimes the fan...


If the fan operates intermittently, but normally when running, it is less likely that the fan motor is the problem. More likely it is a failure in the power supply to the fan motor. If the fan motor was faulty it is much more likely to cease operation totally rather than to operate intermittently as you say it has been doing.

Without physically checking the operation myself it is hard to diagnose. However, there are at least 2 areas for checking:

1. The fan switching mechanism. Is your fan switch faulty and cutting power flow? As the problem is intermittent operate the switch a number of times to see if the symptoms repeat at a time the fan is operating for you.

2. The wiring. There could be a dodgy connection in the wiring to/from the fan motor which is intermittently cutting power flow to the fan motor.
This will need to be carefully checked.

I would suggest you also contact your local toyota service department and talk to one of the experienced people there. Just suggest you are going to bring the vehicle in for service. <More often than not it is likely a number of owners will have come in with exactly the same problem as yours in which event they will be able to tell you what they diagnosed in previous cases. If you cannot get any useful info then contact another dealer.

I have a 1995 Honda Civic. When driving up hills


Check spark plugs and all related cables, fuel hoses, fuel filter (change if black but make sure lines and fuel tank are clean first), and air filter. If blank spots are experienced when power is lost completely then firing of spark plugs may be the issue. Possibly also related to insufficient fuel reaching combustion chamber. Available for more consulation after you do through the above recommended basic checks.
