Bad gas? or maybe fuel filter?


check engine mounts especially the rear box mount because under high torque situations (1-2) gears there may be mis-alignment of the drive shaft occurring and the vibration is from "U" joints behind the gear box getting out of alignment and phase angle.. Check slip joints for lubrication and wear.

Audia4t quattro-dies at stop signs and hard starting


Your first mistake is thinking that the only thing that can cause a misfire is a coil or spark plug. Misfires can be caused by MANY things, including faulty fuel injectors, injector control circuits, blown head gaskets, vacuum leaks, burned valves, broken valve springs, low compression due to cylinder damage, worn piston rings, damaged or worn camshafts, etc..

I would recommend getting this problem properly diagnosed by a professional. Failure to fix misfire codes promptly can cause severe engine damage and destroy high-dollar parts like oxygen Sensors, catalytic converters, engine blocks and cylinder heads.

My 1991 honda accord fails to start after I have driven it a short distance and turn it off. I also is blowing white smoke out of the tail pipe


If it is a constant smoke and or alot, your head gasket is blown. stop driving it if you want to save this engine. also engines with really high miles don't like head jobs, remanned heads can blow out the rings on the pistons and that leads to an engine rebuild. If your car has really high miles , you would be better off replacing the engine

Check Engine Light on Yr2001 Ford Escape V-6 2wd. Code says: Misfire on cylinder #5. Dealer said compression is low in cylinder #5. This Escape needs to pass smog. What can we do?


If the engine has a P0305 DTC (Data Trouble Code) for a "cylinder 5 mis-fire detected", then the first thing to do is to do a compression test to determine if the mis-fire is actually being caused by a mechanical problem, or an electronic problem.

If the engine really does have low compression on the #5 cylinder then that is caused by a mechanical mis-fire and nothing electronic will repair it, and the most common causes for a mechanical mis-fire would be a burnt or bent intake or exhaust valve, a warped cylinder head or damaged head gasket, or a damaged piston. You can call around and find a repair shop that will do a "compression leak down test" if you want to know exactly what is causing the compression leak without any dis-assembly to the engine.

White smoke is not good. If it was coming from the exhaust that is a symptom of a head gasket leak. Engine overheating is the most common cause of head gasket failure so if it has overheated recently, a head gasket is more likely. Verify adequate coolant level and normal water temperature until it can be checked by a mechanic.

My 92 honda civic si check engine light sometimes goes on after driving it for a while and it usually goes on after high revving, i don't know if this has anything to do with it but there is a beeping...


no, the beeping sound has nothing to do with it, thats just telling you your key is in the ignition. this happened to me and turned out to be a blown head gasket. get a complete head set for about $200 and be sure to change ALL of the seals and gaskets, or else you will just blow your head gasket again.
