There is a poor contact hence the spark chances are thje solenoid is bad so replace the starter and this will solve the problem

Replacing oil pressure sensor(oil sender unit) i saw it licking oil above oil filter

It is really hard to get to, but really easy to change.

Unhook the battery cable so you don't blow the new one when you install it. Depending on the location, you may have to remove the oil filter to be able to access the sensor.

Unplug the wire off the end of the sensor, slip a socket onto the old sensor, and unscrew it like you would a spark plug. Before you out the new sensor in make sure it has Teflon tape on the threads. I always a little more than what comes with it.

Screw in the new sensor "hand tight" - then 1/4 to 1/2 turn past hand tight; do not over tighten. Plug the wire on the end. If you removed the oil filter, replace it with new one. Last step - replace the battery cable.

I have a 95 s10 4.3 vortec with no power to the injectors i have repalaced the pump and did a pressure test 60 psi new filter new oil sensor new fuel regulator but cant find the problem everything works ...

First, after cranking the starter, have your pulled a spark plug to verify spark and fuel to the cylinder. If the plug is dry, the injectors are not working. If the plug is wet, no spark. You can verify spark by taking the spark plug and putting the spark plug wire back on it, lay the plug down and crank the starter. If it's getting voltage, a spark can be seen ar the end of the plug. Assuming that you have done the tests and determined that the cylinders are not getting fuel, that would indicate a bad fuel injection unit. If found defective, the fuel injection unit must be replace as a whole. This consists of the pressure regulator, fuel meter body, injector, and poppet nozzles and lines, sometimes referred to as the "spider injectors" because of the configuration. All of this resides under the upper air intake plenum, which would have to be removed.

I have a 2003 hyundai tiburon that will stall while driving. I can be driving 60 mph and the engine cuts off. no mechanics have been able to find the problem.

My son has a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT and has had the same exact problems, stalling out at a roll and then it got worse. Sometime it won’t restart for 5 mins.
We did these repairs new spark plugs & wires, New PVC valve because we found oil in the up intake manifold, removed and cleaned the upper intake manifold and throttle body, mass air flow sensor, etc. ran better but not fixed.
Than a few days later it completely died and won’t start. While testing all of the sensor on the throttle body I realized it was cranking fine but it wouldn’t kick over! I checked for spark, It was weird we had no spark at the plug now.
We replaced the whole Ignition coil and the problem was solved, $139.50 at the dealer parts department. We changed it in about one hour. Advance was $165.00 and Auto Zone was $159.00. The dealer was cheaper for once and an exact OEM replacement.
It’s been 2 weeks and the car runs better with more power than it has for awhile. apparently the coil was going bad slowly than dies totally.
That threw us off a bit.
This is the fix but make sure you check to see if you have oil in your upper intake manifold which when is sucked in can cause a stall out.
clean the upper manifold and change the PCV valve.
good luck.

Starting problems

Well its cranking so not the starter and its got the juice so not the battery maybe. Check to see if its got the correct voltage to kick it over. Could be a fuel problem replace plugs wires and fuel filter. Also check you oil level maybe its low and wont start bc its low. I think it has a oil level sensor that may prevent it from turning over.

Honda s2000, 2001 loose of power when vtec engages I get to around 6000 rpm it sputters continues to 9000 rpm.No Engine light or codes. Vtec is working . I removed the solenoid and cleaned, replaced the...

If youe engine is stock - the VTECH should kick in at 5000-5500RPM.
Your car should be Dyno set. Every vehicle is different.

The 5000-5500 is good because if you were to set it down low it would almost be like having a non-vtec motor. If you set it at 6000, and your redline is 7000 then its not going to realy do anything. Again, almost like having a non-vtec motor.


The first two pics are examples of where VTEC should be set earlier to smooth out the curve - the latter is an example of where VTEC should be set later to smooth the line out. You want the least noticeable transition from the non-VTEC to the VTEC lobes on your cam. That's when you'll make the most power at every point in the rev range.

Too early and your engine stumbles while it tries to get into the efficiency range of your big lobe- Too late and you have a huge jump where you could have had more power a few hundred rpm sooner.
The first graph had the VTEC set later (4400rpm) so that I wouldn't be jumping in and out of VTEC all the time on the highway, the second is the stock S2000 (6000rpm) that Honda sets so that the customer can feel the VTEC kick in (sells cars because it's cool, but isn't the best for max power), and the third was just set too early because it wasn't a custom tune.

Hopefully that gives you a more visual explanation of why you want to set your VTEC crossover point on a dyno.

Another suggestion is to unplug the IACV (Idle Air Control Valve) and see if the bog persists.

Finally - you may have a clogged cat. Remove the plug for the Throttle body Sensor and check again for the bog.

If no bog under this condition - your cat must be gutted, removed, or replaced.
