Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

I have a problem that occurs intermittently, and therefore would be difficult for a mechanic to necessarily find. Sometimes, when my car is started "cold," the car will lose power when I put my foot on the accelerator . I live naer the road and when I turn right to head out, That's where the power loss occurs from time to time. The car doesn't stall, but I put the accelerator further and further down, and then after a three-second hesitation, the cars gets power back and everything is fine (and it doesn't do it again the rest of the trip). It happens most often when the A/C is on, but doesn't happen every time, just sometimes. What could it be an indication of?

I don't think you're supposed to do a cold start. That just means you have a huge compressor. My Honda Element HATES it when I have the A/C on. It's like the A/C drains almost all of the power out of the car.

It starts but after stopping why does it sometimes fail to restart?

It is almost impossible to diagnose an intermittent problem because most of the time absolutely nothing is wrong with the car. The problem has to occur while the mechanic has your car to be able to diagnose and repair it.

What could cause intermittent power loss to radio, ac and crusis control in 2012 Chrysler 200?

The good news: since it's intermittent it's probably a simple loose or dirty electrical connection. In other words, nothing major. The bad news: intermittent problems are very difficult to find, because by Murphy's Law they won't show up when a mechanic's looking for them. Try unplugging and replugging every electrical plug you see under the hood. Sometimes that's enough to restore the connection. Also check your fuse box for a loose fuse, and (though this is unlikely) your battery cables. Good luck.

Computer Module Intermittent Fault

The very first thing you need to do here is check fuel pressure when the no start occurs, if the pump is original then that is a good possibility that pump is failing to run at times.

We have an 09 Accord with about 11,000 miles with an intermittent starting problem. It appears to occur after short runs IE pulling the car out of the garage then back in for the evening. In the morning,...

it has to be under warranty, probably bumper to bumper for another 4 years. why on earth would someone solicit mechanical advice from shadetree mechanics when there are dealers with trained mechanics and all the computers and tools and goodies at their disposal? take it to a dealer.
