Check exhaust compression. Remove O2 sensor before the cats and see if it improves, it should. If it does that means the cataylatic converters are cloged. Had the same problem along with about 10 other people on this site.

2010 subaru forester engine cuts out


consider this
when at the stop lights , you will have your foot on the brake as it will still be in drive or in gear and you don't want the car to move
a simple test is to apply the hand brake to stop the car and don't touch the foot brake
if it idles ok but cuts out when you apply the foot brake , replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak that is causing the problem
you can do this test in the garage by starting in neutral and allowing the engine to idle , then apply the foot brake
iof it dies it is the booster

I put in another battery in my 2000 dogde truck.now it wont idle on its own.


Robert, You may have to try this relearn procedure.
Warm the engine, but hold your foot on the throttle as necessary to keep the engine running.
  1. With vehicle in Park, slowly release the throttle so that the engine will idle on its own. You may have to work at this a bit.
  2. Let the engine idle on its own for about one minute.
  3. Continue to let the engine idle and with your foot on the brake, place the transmission in Drive and let the engine idle for another minute.
  4. Continue to let the engine idle with your foot on the brake and the transmission in Drive. Turn the A/C on and let the engine idle for another minute with the A/C compressor running.
  5. Turn the ignition off and wait a minute. Check the attached links,

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

After driving and warming up the engine it hesitates after you come to a stop. engine idles fine but push the accellerator and it take a few to sec. to go. 2004 murano


You may want to look into your MAF (mass air flow) sensor. Or it also sounds like a TPS (throttle position sensor). Both can cause the same thing. If you put your A/C on full blast while in drive and you foot on the brake you may have a TPS problem. Hope this helps and please rate me.

When I start-up the engine and put it in drive, I could feel the car raise up. what happened; it does not do it any more. Lincoln LS 2002 -V6


That feeling of raising up,only happens when your foot is on the brake and you pull up on the Electronic Parking Brake.

Also what you discribe,could be caused by starting the engine and immediately putting it in gear,before allowing the idle to come down.

I never start any vehicle and drive away. Even in warm weather I let the vehicle warm up about three minutes or more and drive slow for a couple of miles ,until it is in closed loop. That's when the O2 Sensor takes over and controls the fuel system. So forget about saving fuel by leaving on a cold engine. That is nonsense and not fact or theory based.

Must foot be on brake when shifting gears in automatic trans


The damage potential is with accidental shifts out of PARK, such as with kids playing around or the accidental shift by an otherwise occupied driver. To prevent accidental shifting out of PARK, car makers years ago started installing the safety interlock which requires a foot on the brake pedal before shifting out of PARK and putting the car in motion. No damage potential in shifting between other gears, as long as the vehicle is stopped. I hope that this answers your question and wins the debate for you.
