SOURCE: Code po101, hard start when hot (have to hold W.O.T. to start) & stumbles on accelertion. Changed MASS sensor, no help.

Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. The PCM detects that the actual MAF sensor frequency signal is not within a predetermined range of the calculated MAF value for more than 4.0 seconds.  I would try cleaning out your MAF sensor with some carb cleaner and reseting the check engine light to see if it comes back on.  If it does, get back on here and let us know and we will walk you through some other things you can try.  Cleaning it out will be the easiest/cheapest thing for you to try right now.  Good luck.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Running rough and buzzing at throttle body injectors

Sounds like the engine has a vacuum leak at the throttle body area.

95 camaro 3.4 l replaced head gasket & timing chain now hard to start but does start when i give gas pops through throttle also here lifter tapping


recheck the valve timing as it appears that you may be a tooth out on the chain and you have an inlet valve not quite closed . The tapping may be the piston just touching the valve head from the wrong timing

Hi, 2002 dodge Dakota, 4.7l, got home from work and shut off. 10 minutes later, went to start and made a noise like a car makes when you try and start car when it is already started, then idle was rough,...


The chain could jump a tooth or two, but normally a chain or gear breaks. You could pull the spark plugs and check compression to find out.
It sounds like one or two injectors may have failed allowing liquid gas to flow into the cylinders.

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust


Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

Runs rough, wont start at proper timing setting


usually when the camaro runs rough that could be bad fuel injectors-o2sensor and fuel filter-thats my guess i had the same problem and i put bad gas in and the fuel filter went bad

Out of time and blowen valve gasket, No pressure in #1 Spark plug


Changed the cylinder head gasket or valve cover gasket? Did timing chain fail or did it overheat? (can't draw a correlation between the two) If chain failed you may have bent a valve. I believe you have to go at this step by step. from what you wrote, you are not going in one direction that isn't productive. Test compression with a gauge, if you can, have a leakdown test done. You may have other problems as well and I don't see where you did anything about the cause of the overheat??? If you can, have someone with some experience help you "hands on".
Good luck I'll answer whatever I can from this end.

My son has a 1995 camaro 3.4 L engine. Recently there's been a cooling problem. Sometimes when he goes out it runs fine with the temp around 180/190. I put in a 180 thermostat.Sometimes the temp goes up...


The 3.4 L engine is problematic. My Camaro started overheating intermittently and my mechanic said he was afraid the head gasket was going. Hoping that it was anything else, I replaced everything in the cooling system from the radiator back. It kept overheating, but not consistently. Some days it ran fine and other days it ran into the red zone before the engine was even warm. And despite not leaking, it was down about a quart of water every time I drove it. Finally, it started running rough and eventually it was undrivable. It was in fact the head gasket -- a common problem with that engine. You can't replace the engine; Chevy doesn't support it any more, there is no crate engine that fits and the cost of replacing the head gasket is close to or exceeds the value of the car, since most mechanics want to drop the engine and tranny out the bottom to get at it. I got lucky and found someone who did the work without droppng the block and had the heads remilled. It still cost over a grand, but I love my car so much that I would have replaced it anyway. I've been driving it for close to two years since then. At 188K, I know it's not going to last forever, but the last gen Camaro is the last beautiful American car and driving it gives me so much pleasure that it's worth it. Good luck.
