SOURCE: car running problem

Ok Slow deceleration rev responce was part of the ECU software to keep the emissions down ,however if this has only just started you can try to reset the IAC valve ,the procedure is as follows.

Turn ignition key on ,unplug the IAC valve ,turn the key off ,replug the IAC valve. do this 3-4 times .Then start the engine while holding the gas pedal to 2000 rpm ,then slowley let the go of the gas pedal till the engine idles .

The IAC valve is located on the throtle body and has 4 wires to it.

Sometimes the throtle body needs to be cleaned and then reset.

SOURCE: my nissan 350z sometimes stalls after starting

after i replaced the battery in my 2003 350z, it would stall immediatly after i cranked it on unless i gave it a little gas. I fixed this by cleaning the MAF and throtle body valve. Total supply costs were $15 and took about 20 minutes. My Z is not only fixed but runs smoother and cleaner.

SOURCE: my car start but shutt off inmedialty

If you have not done so pull the engine codes or have someone do it.
The codes will give you a good idea where to start otherwise the first place I would check is replacing the Crankshaft Position sensor. This is not only very common for them to fail but I have 1994 Laredo and 1996 Laredo and both had the same trouble at exactly the same time. In addition I replaced the Intake Air Temp sensor, coolant temp sensor and idle air control valve on the 1994. The clicking is probably relays and is more than likely normal.

SOURCE: Running headlights won't turn off when car is shut down, why?

Are you sure that you do not have a delay timer on these lights? This is a feature that keeps the lights on for a set amount of time for you to see your way to the door or whatever. My light timer is on a 30 second hold before turning off.

If the neutral saftey switch is bad or anything related, would it cause the car not get any fire


Explain fire ? Ignition spark , engine turning over when key is moved to the start position . It depends on the make vehicle . Back in the old days voltage from the ignition switch when placed in the start position would go through the park neutral switch to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Causing the starter to spin the engine over . Then the ignition system would have the job of firing the spark plugs causing the air fuel mixture to ignite causing the engine to start an run . Do you have a no- crank no start condition . Sometimes I don't know what you rookies mean , I have been fixing vehicles for over thirty years an you rookies don't talk the same automotive language automotive Technicians talk.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.


your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens alot.you should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.
