Letter A and numbers 1&4 appear on instrumentation panel


A or B = it's time for an oil change. "A" means oil only and "B" means oil and filter but, we always change both.
1 = tire rotation is due.
2 = replace air and cabin filters.
3 = replace transmission fluid.
4 = replace spark plugs.
5 = replace engine coolant.

Got missing problem which was fixed after injection coil and one spark plug rusted by water was cleaned but the missing reappears at high speed in my toyota corolla 2003 1.8E. how can i fix it?


These days an engine light mostly should be turned off using either a code reader or a scanner. Some might still turn themselves off when the fault is fixed but that facility tends to be related more to the old days when shorting a couple of obd socket pins would cause the engine light to blink out the codes. In those days disconnecting the battery used to clear the codes and reset the defaults.

Knowing why the engine light is on would be a helpful clue to what sort of things to test and maybe repair or replace and for that a code read is the best way, though a code should never be considered a repair instruction.
Best practice is basics first. A thorough visual check of the engine compartment and ensure the routine maintenance is up to date and competently completed. You know the coil and spark plug has been giving trouble so revisit those items, all of them, for further checking and testing the spark power and quality.

Once you are satisfied all is in order, clear the code and roadtest. If the light comes back on you will need to delve further...

I drove my kia optima in a deep puddle and now it won't start it makes one clicking sound and nothing happens the starter is good but water did get into the intake and water did get past the butter fly...


Did you crank the engine with the spark plugs out in order to discharge any water that may be trapped in the combustion chambers? Water cannot be compressed. Hope you didn't hydrolock it.

2005 chevy cobalt 2.2 is running rough (putting)


Number three cylinder is miss fire,it does not mean it is the coil,although it could be,remove the coil,and boot,and spark plug,inspect them to see if the plug,or boot look bad,replace the spark plug,and if the boot is burned or distorted,replace it,a fuel injector can cause a miss fire also,but change the spark plug and see if this solves the problem,if not replace the coil,if it is a dead miss,then the coil might be bad,as for the water in the fuel ,the cap is missing,,and 5 dollars worth of HEET will not hurt,also,fuel from the fuel station,can have water in it.It happens a lot.

After water service my car is engine is Vibrating and speed pick up is reduced and engine sound is abnormal please advise me what to do next.


Hi

Sounds like moisture in the ignition wires. Pull the spark plug wires off and dry them out and check for water in the spark plug holes.

I went through a huge puddel and the car stoped and the engine wont spin


Sounds like there is water in the engine. First check the oil level, if it is over full you have water in the crankcase and will need to drain the water form the oil pan. Next you will need to remove all of the spark plugs because it sounds like it is hydrolocked. with the spark plugs removed spin the motor over with the starter and after a bit of that, most of the water should have cleared form the cylinders. once you get it running, go over all of your fluids looking for anything overfull, indicating water intrusion and change anything suspect.
