    hey guys i brought my car to my local mechanic and he put a diagnostics on the car it wouldnt read it and it must go to a mitsubishi dealer,theyve told me that its goin to cost me for heres the symtoms and if noboby can come up with a solution i will have to bite the bullet and pay for it.

    the car is a 2002 mitsubishi colt
    the engine light has been on for about two weeks now.
    when i accelerate the car will accelerate but it reaches a point where the car stops increasing speed for about 3 seconds and then increases again.i believe it could be an error in the fuel managment system any ideas??????plz help

    Take it to a garage/autozone and get them to read the codes from your computer. until u know what they are theres no way to tell your problem....

Hi99ins is right if you take it to an autozone location they will check your codes for free. Then you can post what they were here and we can assist you further.

Why did my enginee hot a/c off light come on and my enginee wasnt running hot

Most cars have a temp sender which is what supplies the reading on your dash, and a sensor which supplies a signal to the computer. The dash senders are typically not very sensitive so they tend to read a lot more in the middle when the coolant may be getting too hot (but not dangerously so). If this continues when the engine is cool from a fresh start then one of the two is likely faulty.

Coolant not getting to the radiator & top hose has a leak so taped it up but now blows out of the coolant tap sparaying and steaming and coolant level dropping under half

Thanks but coolant/radiator fans are not coming on at all wonder if this is why coolant sensor letting out all the coolant & water when the enginee gets pressurised. Not sure why they are not coming on and also not when the car came back from a 3 hour trip last night. We changed the water aux pump which seemed to help a bit but water still ls leaking but not as badlyy

I have a 2003 vw passat 2.8L while changing the spark plugs I noticed oil in the spark plug holes. After gapping and installing the new plugs I drove the car about 20 mile and the check engine light...

Unfortunately the check engine light could be caused by hundreds of things and yet it could have something to do with your changing of the plugs. Do me a favor and take the car to your local auto parts store and they will check the code for the engine light for you for free. Bring that code back here and I will help you figure out what is causing the light and the slugish engine. Sorry for your problem but I'm sure I can help you get it fixed. Thanks for using FixYa!

I have a slk55 2006. When Cold starting the enginee. Loud clicking noise occurred when the enginee run @ 5000r/m. Noise comes from the upper part of the enginee. Till the enginee warm up to normal temp.,...

If your revving the engine to 5000 rpm when its cold, chances are the clicking noise is your valves. Cold oil will not get to the top end for proper lubrication until the engine warms up, and running at 5000 rpm with no oil?? not good. If your treating the car like that, I can't believe it hasn't blown up yet.
