Have your mechanic check the Idle Air Control (IAC) motor and the Throttle Posistion Sensor (TPS). The IAC motor is also referred to as the Idle Speed Control (ISC) motor. That motor is resposible for keeping your idling at a constant RPM when your car is at a stop. Your TPS is responsible for letting your car's computer (ECU) know how far the throttle plate is open. Your ECU uses this information to tell your fuel pressure regulator and injectors how much fuel to put in your engine. If you find that either your TPS or IAC is malfunctioning, replace them. Along those lines, also check your Base Idle Setting Screw (BISS). It's located at the top of your throttlebody.

Worn out clutch plates can also cause the problem, that you are experiencing . Kindlu get the same checked

code p0303 refers to cyl 3 misfire detected ===causes engine mechanical fault--wiring--ignition/fuel system--injector--ECT/MAF sensor--ECM
code p0316 refers to misfire detected during start up --first 1000 revs===causes --engine mechanical fault--wiring--ignition/furl system--injector
the common fault cause is ignition/ fuel system and injectors so I would be checking fuel pressure and injector systems for clean and wiring connections are good especially on no 3 injector.

2005 voyager runs great when cold but as soon as it heats up it won't go over 3 thousands revs.

You have a cracked head, are they are cast, when cast metal is cold it shrinks, now I am meaning really cold outside like almost freezing, and when it gets hot the crack opens, don't know if they are cast or aluminum though, but that is one of many tthings it could be. I wish I could be alittle more specific for ya

check the vacuum lines on the engine.sometimes these will crack or develop a small hole or break and it will **** too much air in the engine causing it to act that way.

hi, I have a 91 Nissan Terrano 2dr TD27 engine
When I first got the car all was good apart from the turbo coolant hoses needing a bit of TLC.
I am now having overheating problems which have progressivley got worse, to the point of which i drive on the road more than 20 min and it starts to get up there in heat.
I have removed the viscous fan and replaced it with an 16 inch thermo fan with a temp switch, and still have the same problem, I have had it off road since and if I dont put my foot down its not as bad like if i just cruise or some thing but if I try to climb a dune i get half way and temp is almost on 3/4.

The other issue i have with the old girl is its so gutless its not even funny, I have put a boost control in as well as boost guage, and the most i get out of it is 6psi and im sure thats not normal.

if any1 can give me any info that would be great
Thanks Neil

Subaru impreza 2l turbo, 1994, starts fine and

your spelling is horrid.   I think your boost control valve or pop-it valve is defective.  Also try a basic tune up with plugs and filters.

sounds like coil pack, when your coils break down due to age the spark then jumps from the side of the coil to the alloy head, i would recomend taking the coils out and getting them tested to be 100%.
