SOURCE: 2002 gmc yukon, rich fuel code, low fuel pressure @40

you may have two oxugen sensors on your yukon. if so the oxygen sensor that controls that bank may be bad. from what you mentioned in your complaint, it sounds like it is the oxygen sensor.

SOURCE: EGR Flow Malfunction, and sometimes a Cylinder 4 Misfire.

How does the oil look? Is it milky or is there any discoloration? Is any moisture or steam vapor coming out of the exhaust pipe? The EGR fault is most likely being triggered from the cylinder missfire. Sounds like you might have a head gasket blown, and/or a cracked or warped cylinder head from the overheating.
You can run a compression test to help determine this.
Good luck...i hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.

SOURCE: idle problem on a 2006 chevy trailblazer 4.2

The code indicates an issue with the Throttle Actuator control. This is a little motor on the throttle body that opens the throttle plates at idle. That control motor may be bad and thus, causing a low idle.

I hope this helps.

Robert, have vehicle scanned for diagnostic codes. Check for vacuum leaks and if you have not done recently give vehicle a complete tune up cap,rottor,wires,plugs,filter's,etc, including injector/throttle body cleaning. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

WHY DID CHECK ENGINE LIGHT START FLASHING THEN STAYS SOLID?


Get the codes read, that's the only way you're going to find out what is going on with the vehicle. You don't have to have the dealer do it, all repair shops have code readers, along with most auto parts stores and some of the oil change places can do it also. With as computerized as the cars are now, when the CEL comes on you what to read the codes.

Warning lights not going out


this a 1996 Toyota Hilux??????????

timing belt? (no way on any 96 !!!)
oil level in 1996, ? ahhh you think pressure is level , gotch.
what country is this. ive not seen all 50 country Hilux.s ever.
its not USA car. so?????

check engine RPM
if dash has RPM this is easy, 800 good, lower bad
cold engine RPM is about 1500 and drops to 800 hot.
is this car EFI or CARB, many cars not in USA are carb up to 2001.
to get best help. for all engine issues.
  1. Post your Country, is that so hard,. not one poster ever did.?
  2. Post engine type, most cars have 3 engine options,, land-cruisers 12 engines. world wide.
  3. List all engine related symptoms, misfire , bogging stalls, and engine shaking or low idle RPM or too high,
  4. check all fuse and report the status of the CEL lamp, key on CEL glows, and running stays off. if not insert the check jumper and read the flash codes, CEL on running means the ECU wants to tell you what and why tests fail.. listen to it or fail.

My 2006 Ford Fusion is idleing very rough when it starts and it acts as if it is going to die but it doesn't. It is also shaking when it starts and the check engine light keeps flashing on and off. It...


it could be a fouled sensor you need to put it on a code reader first, that would be the cheapest start,it may be a bent rod .... i mean there is a lot of things that it could be.but it sounds more like a sensor or electrical system problem.

2006 Mustand GT. Rough Idling, shaking, trying to die


Thats the only problem with the newer cars. There are sensors for everything. Your best bet is to take it to a reputable mechanic and have it put on the diagonstic machine to find the problem($ 40-$80) Then you will know exactly what needs to be replaced without replacing things that arnt the problem
