Who did the work? With that much work done it should have come with some kind of warranty. I would take your car back to the person that did the work and ask them to take a look at it. Could be a fuel problem (fuel filter, pump, feed or return lines) or it could be a calibration that needs to be adjusted in your on-board computer. I would start with running a full diagnostic from a reputable company and see if it shows anything.

SOURCE: eng. shakes spits/sputters oil in spark plugs

I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.

There is an aluminum bolt head on top of what looks like a metal can on the top side of the engine. Its near the fill tube and dipstick - drove me crazy, too!

I replaced radiator in my 2006 cadillac cts and the return line for the transmission popped out of the rad.... why?


normally the oil lines to the radiator are screwed in as there is pressure in these lines from the pump in the transmission. If the flexible hoses are only on tail with a hose clip to hold it on I would change them to screw in type to cater for the pressure of the transmission pump. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to ensure that the pressure is not too high.

After having my 2006 santa fe serviced at 60000 miles, my cruise control doesn't work. I had it lubed, radiator flush, oil change, brakes checked, timing belt replaced, water pump replaced.


Try checking all of your rear brake lights to see if they are working.If you have a burned out bulb the control cannot complete the circuit and the cruise will not work. Dont forget the third brake light sometimes have more than one bulb in them so check closely to make sure that all bulbs are good.

Car has been sitting in garage for past 10 years, on blocks. what do you recommend before trying to start? it needs new battery.


you need drain fuel tank.fuel tank probably need to be removed and cleaned out to remove all sediment in bottom of fuel tank.remove each sparks and label them.squirt some clean engine oil down the spark holes into cylinder bores to help lubricate cylinder walls and help seal the piston rings to build up compression.replace fuel filter.best to change spark plugs and wires.check all brake hoses they more likely old cracked. i would change brake fluid bleed out all the old brake fluid out of the brake system.also change power steering fluid and change transmission fluid and filter also change engine oil and oil filter.replace the antifreeze and all the coolant hoses and radiator hose.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace battery and add new full tank of gas.you should be ready go. check ignition timing also.

2006 after putting gas in my the check engine light came on,had oil changed one week ago first time this has happen .while driving the car its jerking and shaking also doing this sitting. please help.


You could have picked up some bad gas, but it's more likely that your gas cap is not sealed all the way - a common problem. Tighten the cap - if it's the problem the car will start running smoothly almost immediately and the check engine light will reset itself in a day or two.
