    This is an indication that the ignition timing is far to retarded allowing burning fuel into the manifold . IF EFI unit run the fault codes . IF distributor and carby then check that the timing hasn\'t slipped.

My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

There are many possibilities on this. Anything from bad Gas, Bad Ignition Wires, Bad Distributor/IgnitionCoil, Intake Air Leaks, Bad Sensors etc.
It sounds like a malfunctioning Idle Air Control Valve. You can take this off and clean it with Carb Cleaner. Reinstall and check operation. If it helps but does not solve completely the problem: Replace this.
Check your Ignition Wires and Distributor/Ignition Coil.
The Idle Control Valve is available at
(no-I don't work for either store/company)
Autozone Part #TV281 for around $51.
Advance Auto Part #50523 for around $52.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

My serpentine belt broke drove car 30 miles home without belt, got a new belt put it on cranked car up took for test drive got back opened hood realised the exhaust manifold was red hot. Turned A/c off...


  • Well, that belt drives everything including the water pump. When the belt broke and you drove it no coolant circulated and the exhaust glowed from overheating. A red glowing manifold usually only happens from excessive heat caused from modified engines. But in this case this is almost surely what happened. You are lucky you did not blow your engine. Park it and let it cool down for a few hours.

What do these diagnostic codes(PO106,PO121) mean for a 2000 deawoo lanos.


OBD II Fault Code
  • OBD II P0106
Fault Code Definition
The Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor measures the rise and fall of the air pressure inside the Intake Manifold. This provides critical data needed for the Power Train Control Module (PCM) to control the Air Fuel Ratio, the Ignition Spark Timing, and many components of the Emissions Control Systems. The Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Sensor P0106 code is set when there is a problematic or erratic performance in the voltage signal to the PCM.
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed
  • In some cases, the engine may be hard starting and/or get poor fuel economy
  • In some cases, noticeably poor engine performance may occur
Common Problems That Trigger the P0106 Code
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is defective
  • Intake Manifold vacuum leaks
  • Faulty or corroded Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure wiring or connections
Common Misdiagnoses
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real cause is an Intake Manifold vacuum leak
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real cause is a stuck-open EGR Valve
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real problem is a defective Idle Air Control Motor, which causes a very low engine idle

If you dont have the proper spark due to a bad coil pack you will not get all the gas burned properly and your manifold will glow red.I would start with the coil pack.!

I think your 88 mustang contols the fuel air mix with a manifold absolute pressure sensor. Ive seen were the vacume line going into one has worked loose or broken cousing rough idle and throttle. llso check that the idle air control valve isn't plugged up with soot. This would also result in rough or loping idle but would be fine once the engine is hot. Let me know if this was helpful, good luck.
