My Citroen Berlingo 1.6 CDi Emission control system warning light.


Need new heaters for the starting ,as for the emmisions light then this is another problem ,on the exhaust is a NO2 filter abd its blocking up ,whet you need to do is add a bottle of diesel injector cleaner ,dont read the instructions just add a bottle to half a tank of fuel or more and then drive at legal speed limit for half hour or so and this should clear it out if it doesnt ,wait till fuel level goes down and refill and another bottle it will clear the filter out eventually .Now if the heaters dont cure the starting then fit a non return valve on the fuel inlet pipe as well

2001 ford windstar, van has been setting for a year, got my license back and went to start the van, no fuel pump noise, replaced fuel pump, started just fine drove it around for a day parked it now wo


Can you hear the fuel pump run, if not it may have failed again. I have seen new fuel pumps last a day or two and then fail. If your pump is working then replace the fuel filter. Anytime you open the fuel system, you should replace the filter.

Car cuts off in drive like it is not getting any gas but in park it is getting plenty of gas


This sound like a fuel pump problem to me. I had the same problem. It would idle and rev fine but as soon as in gear or hav load to pull it will just die or struggle to stay alive. Done a fuel pump change and problem solved.

95 dodge caravan transmission will shift when cold but once van gets warm after about 30 mins of driving, wont gear down, just stays in low gear... do i need a new transmission?


It could be a solenoid in the transmission, or the pump, or something in the valve body. You will probably need a shop have a look at it.
I would get a couple of estimates from different shops.

VAN WAS PARKED FOR A YEAR PUT GAS IN REPLACED DEAD BATT STARTS RUNS FOR 4 OR5 SEC TURNS OFF STARTS RIGHT BACK AND DIES AGAIN HELP


You'll need to know if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.
Could be a faulty relay, fuel pump, or other component.
Does the van have a security system ?

Driving down the road and all of a sudden the van starts jerking like its having trouble getting gas and then when i turn into a parking spot or onto another road the cars dies and i have no power steering


It could be either a bad fuel system or a bad spark system....
Fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors, fuel regulator, spark plugs, ignition coil, distributor cap, etc....

Toyota estima 2.2 td 1992 van overheating


the impellors in the water pump are prone to corrosion,especially if no or incorrect radiator additives have been used .this will cause water to stay in motor & boil whilst the water in the radiator stays cold because it cannot circulate.try flushing radiator ,installing a new thermostat (which is more than likely not opening )& radiator cap,refil with correct additive,.if the car still over heats then you will need to replace the water pump.bugger!!
