SOURCE: 94 Celica GT, Fuel Problem?

The computer is what outputs that. So you want to check the wire at the computer and see what your getting. Has the motor been pressure washed or have any changes been done recently?
Thanks,

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: Mondeo 55 plate starting problems when the engine is warm

Hi Warren,,
These cars are fitted with a Delphi common rail system that is known for various faults including yours, you need to have a sealed rail test done on the injectors as they are probably leaking off to much causing low pressure in the common rail,when the car is warm,they also suffer with injector code loss ,no reason they get confused this normally gives poor performance and high fuel consumption ,if the injectors are fine check the system for air leaks in the fuel supply pipes and check the leak off pipes for leaks,even the smallest leak can let air in,if the engine light has come on get the codes read ,

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

2011 Camaro engine miss-firing


Very hard to diagnose without trouble codes, but sounds like a fuel problem - bad gas, fuel filter plugging, fuel pressure regulator acting up, etc. I would certainly check fuel pressure at the engine with key on but not started, and then while trying to start.

My ldv convoy 400 has stopped recognising the key code, the immobleiser light just keeps clicking


usually the immobilizer itself at fault. It could just be a glitch and you could have the same key reprogrammed. a factory diagnostic tool or some other which can access the alarm system is necessary

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
