SOURCE: service engine soon light on, uses lots of gas,

Did this mechanic scan for engine codes? A parts store will do it for free, and he should have done it 1st thing. If he didn't, dump him and find a real mechanic. You need to know the codes to determine what is going on. From what you describe, it sounds like an emissions problem, not electrical. The parts store will plug a hand held scan tool into the Pontiac's diagnostic port, and 'read' any codes stored in the cars computer. These codes turn on the check engine light to let you know there is a problem. They can tell you what the codes are,and suggest ways to fix the problem. Let me know how you make out. If you have any further questions, post them here with the code #'s.

Yes, it's the auto choke. These things have to be very carefully adjusted, and really need adjusting to your particular climate. Especially for winter. The choke is applied when the engine is cold, (push the throttle to the floor and release it). At this point, do not press the throttle pedal again. This applies the choke. Then when the engine fires, the kick-off opens the choke to a second position where the engine will run and idle fairly fast. If you allow the engine to run in this position for about a minute, a little 'kick" on the throttle will release the fast idle and the choke. The engine now idles at its normal speed. So you can see the proper adjustment is critical and is done using precise measurements and/or gauges. NOTE: In really cold weather, you may need to pump the trottle pedal 2 or 3 times (no more) before releasing. When you have the choke adjusted, the mechanic will replace any faulty parts.

SOURCE: 2004 dodge dakota sometimes starter just clicks then after a couple times it will start .starter tested good battery is good

That sounds like a starter selenoid problem. The selenoid is what the key switch engages to supply power to the starter. I am not sure of the location but many are on the fender well under the hood. I hope that helps.

First, it will go a lot better if you tell us what it is... Make, model, year.

Could be loose wire to ignition, computer or fuel system. Without knowing what the car or truck is, the codes don't help.

I have a nissan maxina 1996. When I press the gas, the car doesn't respond. Smells a lot of gas. I changed all the sensors including the Mass air flow sensor and the whole throttle body with the sensor....

Considering the age of the car it would be wise to remove the fuel injectors and have them tested and have the fuel system checked for pressure and delivery volume, pressure regulator function...

SC2 car cranks and starts sometimes.put new plugs and wires and noticed oil on the 3 and 4 plug. Car once started with some starting flluid runs fine. and will restart. weather is getting cooler 20 degrees...

A common problem with the 90's engines was the ECTS (electronic coolant temperature sensor) going bad. Seems when attempting to start the car, the computer in the car will only allow enough gas it thinks is needed to start. When a car is cold, the computer gives more gas initially, until the engine warms up, then gives less gas. When starting a warm engine, less gas is needed.

If the sensor goes bad, it always tells the computer that the engine is hot. The computer give less gas to a cold engine, and sometimes it will start, sometimes not. Its a pretty cheap part, and a do it yourself one, just research it a bit on line...good luck

2005 grand cherokee limited

the vehicle itself is quite reliable it has the v-8 and geats good gas milage. plus it's 4 wheel drive has good sound system. and a good resale value as well. the only problem i have come across is that sometimes it will get a crack on the exuast pipes by the exaust manifold but that has happened only rarely and is not something to be concerned about.
