SOURCE: #5 cylinder misfire

I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times.

There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

SOURCE: 3002 Pt Cruiser GT -

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

Testimonial: "It was the cam shaft sensor - stuck open -I liked that you were able to give a reason for the suggestons you gave, it wasn't done off the cuff."

SOURCE: Here is a good one.

this is very likely ...or they cleared the light before selling you the car (they =dealer) and the drive cycle completed and the pcm saw the issue..stop back into autozone they will pull the code for you and if it is a evap code..clear it and wait a few days again to see if the problem is fixed...thats the free way...first thing first you need that code..

How do you remove front grill on Susuki grand vitara so I can add freon

from a dry system or just top off????? a key fact needed....
i guess you cant see the low side fill cap , on right side of engnie
what engine is there.
H25, H27??

on mine the H25, the low side fitting is on the line just forward of the firewall... USA car.
it has a gray cap, and fits only the R134a tool fitting.
in some countries they run diffr. A/C system's
and you never said country. so..... we cant guess that or engine there.
the routing of lines is dicated by engine shape...

the FSM Covers the grill.

on my GV page 7B12 shows (FSM book) shows the connections
1 at firewall pip (suction (lowside)
and one near compressor.
but my car is H25 engine and is USA systems...

are you confusing the hi/lo switch for the valve?
front grill answered now, page 7b24 in the book, condenser out.
step 3, remove front bumper. and lower stay.
now the bumper. page 90-1
  1. finder liners off. see front edge attachments near marker lamps, detach them.
  2. then remove bumper shell. 6 bolts.
  3. the the greill can come off, the grills is mounted to inside top of shell bumper,
just one page in FSM covers this.... most shops just look for the bolts. and find them and remove them... no matter what..

tell engine and country and can show the line (freon) drawings
of the shop manual, connecting up his manifold gauges.
its in all suzuki FSM books in print.

1987 ltd crown victoria in alaska. Did oil change and added coolant at an autoshop, caused the heat to come back on. 1 week in -20 degree wheater later car starts after waitin 10 min+. Engine would do 1...

did you use normal coolant or a glycerol based anti freeze, this prevents your coolant from freezing in sub zero temperatures, the other big thing is the viscosity of the oil, that means how thick the oil is at different tempratures, colder ambient temprature lower the number, etc.

I have a 2006 dodge stratus, 52,000 miles on it. its running great!! This morning the yellow engine light went on. About a month and a half ago i got a key lock gas cap. Sometimes i lock other times...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. The check engine lights comes on when your computer in your car detects a problem. When it is on, it shows an error code on the computer. It could be a minor problem or a major problem, even though there are no apparent signs. You need to take it to Autozone or Advanced to have it scanned. It cost nothing and they can tell you exactly why the light is on. It only takes a few minutes. This way, you know what the problem is for free. Just in case it is an important issue, have it done asap.

How to properly drain engine coolant

Get a large drain pan ready and remove the radiator cap when the engine is cold. On the bottom of the radiator there is a pitcock which is usually plastic that is screwed in the drain hole. Slowly remove it until coolant comes out. Once you remove it completely coolant will come out quickly. Once it is drained remove the lower radiator hose to drain what is left. This will drain 85% to 90% of the coolant.*** Please rate me on this answer.***

Where is the oil filter on a 2006 cobalt

Remove oil filler cap and dipstick. Pull up to remove large balck plastic engine cover. Tabs are at rear left and lower front right (facing engine). Large (1-1/16") Black plastic hex cap is cover for oil filter, fron of engine between motor and transfer case. Best to use special tool that fits 3/8" socket extension(about $12 - Search fro Lisle 14700 Wrench) since adjustable wrench doesn't fit well. Replace cartrideg and O-ring, then reinstall in reverse order.
