SOURCE: 1999 pontiac grand prix . will not run

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

SOURCE: I Have A 1999 Grand AM,I Have Gas In Oil,Car Runs

The gas in the oil thing can only be fuel injector related.I would start by useing a good fuel injector cleaner(recomend BG 44k)and see if that helps.On the emission code I would start by replaceing the gas cap.Its pretty common.

SOURCE: 1997 Bonneville - Engine light code P0303

the code you have is for a misfire on #3 cylinder. (im sure you knew this right?). the crankshaft position sensor will not cause one individual cylinder to misfire. what i typicaly do in this scenario is switch the ignition wire off of the guilty cylinder onto a known good firing cylinder and see if misfire moves to the other cylinder. i repeat this process by switching the spark plug and finaly the fuel injector. a compression check may be in order as well (but not a likely cause) unless you have access to a tech 2 (gms diag computer) you will need to clear this code after each component is moved and see if you get a new code ie :p0304 if switched to #4 cylinder..other wise if you do have access to a computer that has a misfire chart in its features you can quickly identify the guilty component. as i side note the ignition coil may also be faulty, but i believe your vehicle has a 3.8liter meaning that it has a coil pack....switch the others i listed and see ow you make out....good luck!

when you changed the parts did you have the codes cleared ? as if the comp stored it then it will return and when you put new parts on it took the comp time to test and display new changes.

The check engine light came on the car shakes when pressing on gas pedal


Take the vehicle to Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to read the fault code for you and they will do it for free and tell you what part you need. Most likely this is a Crank Position Sensor or cam Position sensor but the code reader will tell you which one so you don't waste time or money on the wrong one.

PLEASE READ ALL THIS INFO.

MAKE SURE THE ENGINE OIL IS CLEAN AND CHANGED AT PROPER INTERVALS
P0011 NISSAN - Intake Valve Timing Control Performance Bank 1

Symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible engine lack/loss of power
- Posssible engine rough idle
Possible causes - Harness or connectors
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve may be faulty
- Crankshaft position sensor (POS) may be faulty
- Camshaft position sensor
Tech notes Since the Intake valve timing control solenoid valve uses oil flow to control timing, dirty oil can cause the valve to stuck open or close. Before replacing the valve, change engine oil and filter and reset engine code. When is the code detected? When there is a gap between angle of target and phase-control angle degree, the valve will stop working and the ECM will trigger the P0011 code. P0011 NISSAN Description This mechanism hydraulically controls cam phases continuously with the fixed operating angle of the intake valve.

The ECM receives signals such as crankshaft position, camshaft position, engine speed, and engine coolant temperature. Then, the ECM sends ON/OFF pulse duty signals to the intake valve timing control solenoid valve depending on driving status. This makes it possible to control the shut/open timing of the intake valve to increase engine torque in low/mid speed range and output in high-speed range.

The intake valve timing control solenoid valve changes the oil amount and direction of flow through intake valve timing control unit or stops oil flow. The longer pulse width advances valve angle. The shorter pulse width retards valve angle. When ON and OFF pulse widths become equal, the solenoid valve stops oil pressure flow to fix the intake valve angle at the control position.
MAKE SURE YOUR OIL IS CLEAN AND CHANGED AT PROPER INTERVALS.

Check engine light comes on. Vehicle stalls . When computer ls reset vehicle runs fine.


This is most likely a faulty Throttle position sensor or MAF sensor. The problem is you can get the codes read if the vehicle won't make it to a shop that will read the code for you. Auto Zone will loan you a scanner tool but unless you can predict when that check engine light is going to come on it will be hit and miss until you can get the code. You can't really fix the problem correctly until you can identify which sensor is causing the fault. Next time you are on the road, as soon as that check engine light comes on if you are close to Auto Zone or Advance Auto or O'Reiley Auto parts store stop there and ask them to connect the code reader to the vehicle and tell you what the code is and what part it effects. They do this for free in most states.

This has variable valve timing. The VVT is run by oil pressure. A code can be the wrong viscosity oil, oil sludge or a bad VVT mechanism. The only way I'd even think about this vehicle is after it's been inspected by a mechanic. Skip that you you buy this vehicle at your own risk.
