    It happened once before about a year ago and my mechanic changed the plugs, which fixed the problem. But the plugs should not be bad already

  • maaytaag Jun 28, 2009

    My mechanic scanned it and said it was an emmisions code and not to worry about it. After cooling down, the car made it into town. This is exactly what happened last year, and the plug change worked, I hope that is all there is. At the time my mechanic said there was standing water over the plugs and asked me if I had the engine cleaned, which I have never done.

    sounds like you have a bad oil pump and you are overheating you need to specified what where those codes and just because you reset the computer it does not mean than the wen away.

There's way more to this than simply clearing a code. How did you clear it? You need a scan tool to do it on that year. Also,it sounds like not enough fuel,like the pump or a bad cat converter. I'll need more info to properly diagnose this.

My 1999 chevy blazer is running rich where I smell fuel fumes can this cause the truck to loose power and not go over 30 but the engine runs smooth


Most likely, A good "burn" is the right Fuel-air mixture. Too much fuel bad burn lots of black smoke. Not enough fuel It may not burn at all. Any emission codes? I will bet it won't pass an emissions test, so get it fixed. Probably affects mileage. Do you smell fuel in the engine compartment? you have a dangerous leak. Or do you smell at exhaust? Do you smell in the cab?
Probably leak in engine bay, or even under the truck's fuel line, filter, pump. or tank.

Engine code 894


DTC P0894 Transmission Component Slipping
DTC P0894Circuit Description with 4L80-E / 4L85-E Automatic Transmission The powertrain control module monitors the engine speed and the transmission output shaft speed. The PCM calculates turbine shaft speed and torque converter clutch (TCC) slip speed by using inputs from the automatic transmission input shaft speed sensor, automatic transmission output shaft speed sensor, and other transmission components. The forward clutch housing is used as the AT ISS rotor. Whenever the TCC is engaged, engine speed and turbine speed will closely match, indicating low TCC slip speed. In D3, with the TCC engaged, calculated transmission component slip can only occur in the torque converter. In D4 OVERDRIVE, with the TCC engaged, transmission component slip can occur in the TCC or the fourth clutch assembly. If the PCM detects an excessive TCC slip speed in D4 OVERDRIVE, when the TCC should be engaged, then DTC P0894 sets. DTC P0894 is a type C DTC. For California emissions vehicles, DTC P0894 is a type B DTC.DTC Descriptor This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC: DTC No MAF sensor DTC P0101, P0102 or P0103. No MAP sensor DTC P0106, P0107 or P0108. No TP sensor DTC P0120 or P0220. No VSS DTC P0502 or P0503. No ISS DTC P0716 or P0717. No TCC Stuck Off DTC P0741. No TCC Stuck On DTC P0742. No 1-2 SS valve DTC P0751, P0752 or P0753. No 2-3 SS valve DTC P0756, P0757 or P0758. No TFP manual valve position switch DTC P1810. No TCC PWM solenoid valve DTC P2761. The throttle angle is 10-100 percent. Engine speed is 1,250-5,000 RPM. The TFT is Vehicle speed is TFP manual valve position switch indicates D4. The TCC is commanded ON for 0.04 second or greater. TCC is locked ON for greater than 0.1 second. Commanded The PCM detects slip in the torque converter clutch and/or the fourth gear clutch pack with the TCC in an apply or locked mode. DTC P0894 sets during the second consecutive trip when one of the following conditions occur: The TCC slip speed is 100-550 for 10 seconds for three occurrences.The TCC slip speed is 100-550 for 10 seconds, the PCM commands maximum line pressure. The TCC slip speed is 100-550 for 12.5 seconds, the PCM commands the TCC Off for 2 seconds. The TCC slip speed is 100-550 for 15 sec For California emission equipped vehicles, the PCM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp during the second consecutive trip in which the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met. For Federal emission equipped vehicles, the MIL is not illuminated. The PCM commands maximum line pressure. The PCM inhibits the TCC engagement. The PCM freezes transmission adaptive functions. The PCM records the operating conditions when the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met. The PCM stores this information as Freeze Frame, California only, and Failure Records, California and Federal. The PCM stores the DTC P0894 in PCM history during the second consecutive trip, California, or the first trip, Federal, in which the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met. For California emissions, the PCM turns OFF the MIL during the third consecutive trip in which the diagnostic test runs and passes. A scan tool can clear the MIL/DTC. For California emissions, the PCM clears the DTC from PCM history if the vehicle completes 40 warm-up cycles without an emission related diagnostic fault occurring. For Federal emissions, the PCM clears the DTC from PCM history if the vehicle completes 40 warm-up cycles without a non-emission related diagnostic fault occurring. The PCM cancels the DTC default actions when the fault no longer exists and the ignition switch is OFF long enough in order to power down the PCM. A TFP manual valve position switch malfunction can set DTC P0894. A mechanical failure of the shift solenoids or TCC PWM solenoid valve can set DTC P0894. Internal transmission failures can result in a DTC P0894. Sticking or contaminated shift valves may cause intermittent slipping in D4. DTC P0894 defaults to an elevated line pressure condition which may result in partial TCC apply. This may produce an idle surge that could stall the engine. The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table. 3. This step tests the indicated range signal to the actual selected range. A faulty TFP manual valve position switch can set a DTC P0894. 4. This step tests for excessive TCC slip speed while in a commanded TCC lock-up state and in fourth gear; and confirms that the fault is present. 5. This step tests for excessive TCC slip speed while in a commanded TCC lock-up state and in third gear. 6. This step tests for a sticking TCC shift valve. 7. This step tests for proper transmission line pressure.

Have 2003 Kia Sorento EX, sat for couple months, then changed batter to pass emission test. Test said not ready due to computer needs to be reset, how far do I have to drive to reset computer?


I think you mean drive cycle not complete.
Generally the van needs to be driven 50-100 miles at both city and highway speeds. The distance needs to start when the engine is at operating temp, and the speed needs to vary including stop and go city. It does not have to be all in one trip but the engine must be warmed up first.

Drive cycle


In general terms, the car has to be driven for 50 - 100 miles in various conditions to allow the engine computer to check emissions.
The distance can be in one trip or several, but the engine must be at operating temp and speeds include both city and highway.

Sounds like you might be burning up your ATF on a long trip. Try installing a transmission cooler and add some lucas oil transmission additive.

Check to see if your ATF smells burned.

Engine shaped light comes on, smell of burning inside car


The "engine light thing" or check engine light is a light that tells the driver through the vehicles computer that there in most cases is a sensor problem and yes in most cases it has to do with emissions. Your vehicles computer will store a code which helps lead the mechanic in the direction as to where the problem is. I'm not sure of your location but you can take it to your local auto parts store and the will plug your vehicle in to a computer to pull the code(s) to help narrow down where the problem is. I'm not there as to what you are smelling as far as what is burning but it could be wiring or a leak of some sort in the engine compartment that you may be smelling inside the vehicle. Lets just say it is a wire that is shorted or burning. The code that is pulled should lead the mechanic to the general area as to where the short is located. In any case gettting the diagnostic trouble codes pulled is a start to finding the source of the problem. At this point until I can get a code I can't help you much as to the direction to go but hope I was able to clear up what the engine light is telling you. If you get a code(s) feel free to comment or reply here or you can email me directly at csautomotivecars@att.net and I will be happy to help you understand what the code means and maybe what you can do about it but will need the make, model, year and engine size of your vehicle. Don't worry the help won't cost you anything and I may just be able to give you a description depending on what the code is. Hope I was able to help

What does the code p1734,p0780 mean and how do i slove it


P0780 Automatic Transaxle Malfunction (With Automatic ...


























P0780 Automatic Transaxle Malfunction - With Automatic Transmission





Possible Causes


Setting Conditions







  • Mechanical problems present in the automatic transmission can cause this code to set. See the note below.


  • Refer to the repair instructions in a transmission repair manual or the information in other electronic media to repair this code.




Engine running; vehicle driven at Cruise speed, and the PCM detected a problem in the mechanical operation of the automatic transmission. Note: This trouble code (P0780) sets with along with several TCM related trouble codes.he





Malfunction Indicator Lamp

The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) alerts the driver that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has detected an OBD II emission-related component or system fault. When this type of malfunction occurs, an OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set by the PCM. The MIL is located on the instrument cluster and is labeled CHECK ENGINE, SERVICE ENGINE SOON, or is identified with an ISO standard engine symbol (i.e., a picture of an engine).

Bulb Test

Each time the ignition switch is turned to the "on" position, the MIL indicator is illuminated for about 3 seconds (which is a function of the PCM).

Readiness Codes

To check if the Readiness Codes are set to complete, turn the ignition switch "on", but do not start the engine. The MIL will come "on" for 15-20 seconds. If it then goes "off", the Readiness Codes are set to complete, If it flashes five times, one or more of the Readiness Codes are not set to complete. To set Readiness Codes from incomplete to complete, perform the drive cycle procedure for the appropriate code.

MIL Lamp-On Message

Each time the PCM detects an Emissions related fault, the MIL is illuminated to inform the driver that the vehicle needs to be taken in for service.




COMPONENT MONITOR DRIVE CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS



  • Do not turn off the ignition switch during the test procedure.


  • All Onboard Diagnostic Monitors are cleared when the battery is disconnected or when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is cleared with the Scan Tool.


  • This drive cycle can be used to determine if the Readiness code for this Monitor will run and complete, and if the MIL will remain off after the vehicle is driven.


  • Operating Ranges: When a range of values is provided, try to operate the vehicle in the middle of the range. For example, if the vehicle speed range calls for 45-55 mph, drive the vehicle as close as possible to 50 mph. If the engine speed should be 1,000-2,000 rpm, try to operate the engine at 1,500 rpm.


  • Scan Tool Data: There are certain Parameter Identification (PID) values that must be within range before this Monitor will "run". It can be helpful to pull up those PID items on the Scan Tool so an assistant can view them during testing.


  • The Readiness code for this Monitor defaults to "continuous" or "monitoring" because this Monitor runs continuously when the engine is cranking or running.




COMPONENT MONITOR PRETEST CONDITIONS



  • MIL is off.


  • No Emission related DTC's are present.




TEST PROCEDURE



  1. Connect the Scan Tool to the data link connector (DLC). Use the Scan Tool to clear any stored DTC's and to reset the OBD Monitors.


  2. Start the engine and allow it to run at idle speed for 15 seconds.


  3. Accelerate at part-throttle to 40 mph and maintain that speed for several minutes. Bring the vehicle to a stop, and then allow the engine to idle with the transmission in Drive (in Neutral for M/T) for 15 seconds.


  4. Then accelerate at moderate throttle to 50 mph and maintain that speed for 15 seconds. Bring the vehicle to a stop, and then accelerate to 40 mph and maintain that speed for 15 seconds. Bring the vehicle to a stop and allow the engine to idle for 15 seconds. Repeat this step at least 5 times.


  5. Check for any Pending codes in the Generic OBD II section of the Scan Tool. If no Pending codes are set, the Component Monitor test is complete. If any Pending codes are set, refer to the appropriate trouble code repair information to make the repair.

2005 kia spectra wont start. throwing codes 1505, 1507 and an emissions evap. short code. what is the possible fix?


P1505 - Idle-Speed Control Valve Closing Solenoid Control Circuit Electrical
P1507 - Idle-Speed Control Valve Opening Solenoid Control Circuit Signal Low

The knock sensor will cause the ignition timing to ******, which will cause a lack of power, however, it's important that the engine camshaft/crankshaft timing was set properly when rebuilding the engine, if this is off, the engine will have no power and you could set the knock sensor code.

Hope thats help.
