SOURCE: runs sluggish at start up.

  • Possible vacuum line related, suspect problem was related to EGR valve, as this was replaced Nov 07. Problem came back this past weekend. noted vacuum line to EGR valve had no vacuum. I removed device-located top front side of the engine near serpentine belt, noted foam filter inside-cleaned filter reassembled and problem cleared. I believe this device (part of emissions System, investigating official name) may be the culprit. This device has two vacuum lines coming in and 1 electrical connection obove the serpentine belt. with the foam filter removed I was able to stall out the engine by placing my finger over the orfice (care-full of the fan belt). This must be an electrical solenoid that goes intermittent.

    The cylinders are numbered as on the spark pack you changed. You might have done better putting the seafoam in the tank as an injector cleaner. Not sure why you changed so many parts, you seem to know how to get the codes from test connector lead hookup and the blink pattern. You might also want to check the fuel rail pressure and the crank and cam angle sensors. Before replacing the injector, swap the #4 injector with the adjacent one and see it the code moves with the injector or stays put. If the code stays on #4, then check the injector wiring, if it moves clean or replace the injector.

    While changing the spark plugs on the mazda6 i noticed some spark plugs were practically drenched in oil, one seemed to have engine coolant, what can be reasons for this? Head Gasket?

    sea foam is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater,particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter that will just clogg an block the engine. your head gasket is gone you will need to replace the head gasket an probably flush the engine too... Hope this helps

    2000 corolla flooded and wont start

    how high was the flooding, does the car crank, lights come on, are all fuses ok? did any blow? have you changed the air filter?

    if it cranks try using WD40 or a water dispersant equivelent on your leads and distributer inside and outside the cap. then take to every electrical connection you can with it. if still no start you will need to start dis assembling the interior to see if water got to the computer.

    2006 PT Cruiser Runs Fine but 15 or 16 mpgs.seems too low.

    I would agree, that is low. It time for a full tune up.

    Spark Plugs and Wires
    Fuel Filter
    Air Filter
    PCV Valve
    Oil and Filter Change

    Plus add a bottle of Sea Foam to the gas tank. This will clean the Injectors. Its available at any Auto Parts Store.

    As i put my foot on the acc, in all 5 gears, sometimes it judgers like a kangaroo, like its running out of gas

    OK number of possibilities here- Im gonna give you the most common ones-

    a dirty fuel filter can cause vehicle sputter by blocking the flow of gas from the pump to the engine

    a dirty air filter restricts air flow causeing the MAF (mass airflow censor) to report abnormal readings to the ecm (computer) causing the ecm to adjust fuel mix improperly resulting in stutter

    bad plugs, wires, or coil - if the engine cant achieve proper spark it will hesitate.

    Sounds like you need a tune up- Id check your fuel filter first and go from there, buy plugs before you buy wires, and wires before you buy coils-

    Hard start wont run more than a few minutes

    sounds like the air bypass valve may be stuck ,try pulling off a small vaccum line. the valve is used instead of a choke plate. when engine is cold it bleeds air around the throttle plate raising the idle.
