Toyota voxy not starting while engine has no fault.

first you need to check if there is spark on the high tension leads. if spark is okay, check if the spark doesn't go off when you crank to start. if no fault, again check the fuel flow and supply to the injector rail, injectors or carburetor

Airbag light stays on

A fault has occurred and switched the light on, it will need to be switch off with a scanner, need to check out the system to find the fault or the light will come back on straight away. A good place to start is the connector to the front seats for the seat belt tensioners. This cable gets more movement with adjusting the seat, I have found this to be the fault on about 70 per cent of faults found. Good luck

I have changed the camshaft position senson several times on my 05 Neon and now replacing it doesnt do any good. im getting an intermittent camshaft positon circuit error. how do I test the wiring and what...

I never had a problem with the cam sensor in my neon, drove it for 10 years. However, the O2 Sensor fault tends to send a signal that a bad Cam sensor is present and if the timing belt is lose or jumps that will send a false code. The timing belt on these uses a spring tension device in the 2000 to 2003 and a hydraulic tension arm in the 2003 and later models. The hydraulic tension assembly tends to hang and allows the timing to be erratic. Not enough to throw it off all the time, apparently when the belt pops it comes free, but that is all it takes to through the cam timing off and that causes the computer to send a fault signal or random misfire signal. Look at the Timing belt after replacing the O2 sensor if the O2 replacement doesn't resolve the problem.

Hi Kechly,
I'm a bit confused as to what exactly happened with your vehicle. What drive chain tensioned are you talking about? I believe the engine in your vehicle uses a timing belt. As far as my knowledge extends, I don't know of any chain in the drive. If the differential has run dry that will result in a rumbling sound which comes from worn or damaged bearings. I would advise you begin by inspecting those. If the vehicle is able to move at speed then it would seem that the auto box isn't being affected by the fault. Some clarification regarding your fault would help a correct diagnosis.

In a v8 why would the water pump go bad with only 52000 miles

Belt tension to tight or you just got one that has been made on a Monday. Just kidding. belt tension is the no 1 fault as it runs the bearing on a angle and the seal will go after a while.

My 1994 Honda Civic will start, but dies as soon as I let off the ignition. Any suggestions?

I'm not a qualified mechanic but I have driven all sorts of cars vans and motorcycles.
Starting / Running problems fall in to two categories
(1) High Tension/Low Tension ignition or
(2) Fuel/Air.

For (1) it could be a number of things. Here are a few questions which may help eliminate problems.
Is the battery charged and holding charge (min 13.8 V normally)?
Is the ignition timing correct?
Is there a fault on the coil?
Is there a fault on the Low Tension circuit?
Has the distributer Cap got tracking marks?
Plug Gaps OK?
Are the sparks from the HT circuit nice and blue in color?
Is the "black Brain box" functioning correctly?
 For (2)
Is the air filter clean?
If Carbs are fitted are jets Ok?
If Carbs are fitted ae the diaphrams Ok?
If fuel injection are the injectors OK?
Slow Running set ok on idle?
Fuel filter clean?
Fuel pump functioning?

Hope these help

I have a Peugot 106 Independence and the battery charger warning light comes on intermittently although this does not seem to affect running. Car had inspection but no fault was found. Does any one have...

If the battery had not been replaced, then this should have been replaced before the alternator.

The alternator belt (serpentine belt) should be well in tension, when this is not in tension, or need to be replaced you get battery warning light.

To put serpentine belt in tension you need to undo the tensioner arm bolt a bit, and move the tensioner pulley. Sometimes you need to hammer the arm with a rubber hammer to do this.
