Could be a number of things ,take to a mechanic and get the OBD read, these older vehicles were a bit basic in the OBD but did have some capability to show where a problem could lay,i would guess at the ignition system probably the coil pack so you could check if it sparks when its not starting ,check the fuel supply side as well, try a fuel addative as this may clear any carbon deposits that have built up over the years , as you see it can be a variety of reasons

Keyless start stop

yes this is right. although not a bright idea but if the vehicle is running from what i understand the vehicle will go as far as you want until you shut the vehicle off. very stupid design flaw.

I have a 2004 Honda Civic VTI, the engine checklight came on and I went to 3 different computer diagnostic centres and the scan showed VTEC system failure. I changed the VTEC solenoid, change vtec pre

What is wrong is that you changed a part

You failed to follow any trouble charts because
you have none

The sensor was most likely okey & just doing it's
job of reporting a fault

You could have a mechanical problem such as a timing
belt issue or worn VVT Actuators on the end of the cames

You have to diagnose code related issues & then find out
why a sensor reported as it did

Even if you scoped the sensor you would most likely
assume it was bad,not so,have to keep thinking why the
data was bad

You need professional tools & look at several pieces of data
overlayed on a big sceen at one time

Repair shop or dealer for that issue

My trailblazer will shutoff if I turn the air on when I crank it. what is the problem?

What's the problem?

You make it sound like you never need a technican
or skilled mechanic to diagnose any vehicle,sorry,they
are very high tech & beyond the driveway fix, of thirty
years ago

You have a check light on
So you should know that we would need any codes
you should have gotten by now

Need a repair shop to diagnose

I can't believe in the past 20 years, you have not had a check
lights & vehicle issues at least once a year

Ck engine light stays on and remains on after starting ,but goes out after driving aabout 2 blocks.Also experiencing some engine knock as with low octane fuel. Engine is 3.8 lt. 2007 buick allure...

Although your check engine light goes out on its own, the error code is still stored in the memory of the vehicle computer, so you should take it to your local auto parts store and have the code read. That should give you a good place to start troubleshooting.

Although some mechanics would give you a list of parts you can buy and install, most of the parts you would replace would not be needed. It is better to do a little troubleshooting before you throw parts at it - and cheaper!

Dear Fellow Forum Members / Gurus, I have been pestered with perpetual engine lightup and steering lightup for the past 2 weeks. I am driving a Suzuki Swift 2009. Everything seems well till a fortnight...

This is not related to rain, the APP or the acclerator pedal went to a fail safet APP1 or APP2 did not correlate, but this is only for TPS fault and since then you have recovered The steering is power related or charging related,do not interfere with the charging system ECU okay to cover it but the battery can handle the rain,something on the battery has conducted power go to the positvie terminal in the engine compartment and see if the 30amp or 40amp fuse is open it has to be tested

Jus tuned my b16a2 with vafc.The idling is ok but when i drive for a while the rpm suddenly shoots up to 2500 rpm and also checklight appears thus changing the idle status after the drive.When i reset it...

I'd look for a vacuum leak, or a problem with the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS, harness disconnected? Broken/damaged wiring?) or Idle Air Control (IAC, cold be harness or dirty and sticking). Your ECM keeps detecting the problem so resetting it will not fix it-it has to be one of the above issues.

I have a 1997 pontiac bonneville, it's running really rich (white smoke out of the tailpipe lightly) dies when it's at an idle. Changed the coil pack, no change.

If it is running really rich the color of the smoke out of the tailpipe would be dark grey or black. Some white smoke out of the tailpipe is normal in cooler weather until the vehicle engine warms up. Otherwise white smoke may be an indication of the engine burning coolant (cracked head, headgasket etc). I would take it to an auto parts store and have them scan the car's computer for codes. This is usually a free service. A code may be present even if the engine checklight is not on. A trouble code will make it easier to determine what is the cause of your problem. There are numerous things that can cause the problem you are having. Also knowing the mileage of the vehicle will help. Sorry that I am unable to help you more at this time.
