You will need an OBD II scanner to read the check engine light code. The scanners are not expensive, starting around $20. Follow the instructions for the scanner; the male socket for the car will be under the dash, usually near the steering wheel. When you get the code, use the internet to look up what it means and go from there.

Check your TPS Throttle positioning sensor. Sounds like it has a dead spot in it or it is failing. May also be a wiring harness issue or loose connection at TPS too! If its intermittent then it will soon go out completely. It should be located on your fuel pedal. Remove it and check it with an ohm meter. Check resistance all the way thru from 0-100 percent. When it is not working it should do nothing and show no resistance. When it is working the resistance value will increase and or decrease as you turn the sensor.

SOURCE: Holden Rodeo 2001, check engine light keeps coming on!?

I'm having same problem on my 2000 model rodeo 4wd 3.2L V6. Other day check engine light came on. I checked engine bay nothing abnormal, or power loss. Next day light was gone. 2 days later driving, a sudden loss of power and light came up. After idling for a couple of minutes, drove off with light still on but all power back. 1 hour later of faultless driving loss of power for a minute or so. Engine temp normal. Had break for 1/2 hour and set off for last hour of journey without fault except check engine light still on. Following dayon startup light went out???
Seeking help from experts.

Hi.

If problem is only on startup and when idleing, then the problem is likely IAC system, also a vacuum leak will cause the same problem.

If problem is not only on startup and idle, but also when driving, then MAP sensor and EGR system must be checked.

Check also accelerator cable state and setting.

The first thing to do is pulling out the OBDII fault codes stored in the ECM. This is done connecting a code reader to the ECM diagnostic port. The job can be done for a small fee at any local garage, and it is done for free at AutoZone.

The codes will help locating the problem.

About possible faults:

Problem is stalling when idling and during startup, but engine idling fast all the time. Problem not starting at times it is due to the fact that the wrong mixture is being sprayed, this is probably causing flooding and misfire. Since the CEL is on, one of the codes returned is probably misfire.

Check accelerator.

Check IAC system. This is composed by a valve and a solenoid that check and control amount of extra air air when the engine is idling. The IAC valve is located on top of the throttle body.

Check the vacuum system and try cranking with gas tank cap off. Vacuum system is tested using an hand tool gauge onvacuum lines while spraying card cleaner on the hoses (or heating them with a torch). If there is a leak, pressure will go up. A big leak will also do hissing noise, and will often result in a lean code when doing an OBD code scanning.

This kind of symptoms can also be caused by weak wiring to MAP/MAF sensor (MAP in this engine).

If the car also drives very rough and is revving up and down in a weird way, check the EGR valve.

As first thing I would do a code scanning. This car is OBDII. The scan can be done for free at the nearest Autozone, or for a small fee at any garage.

If you get any OBDII code from the scan, report it here, so that we can individuate the possible reason for the problem.

If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

Regards.

Ginko.

How do I locate starter motor in my Holden frontera


Haven't done one in a while but I'm sure it's behind the exhaust You'll have to either take it out in 3 pieces or A) remove the exhaust to get to it or B) undo the engine mount and lift the engine on that side to get to it easily. They're a bit tricky

My Holden Barina (2001) makes a rattling noise emitting from the right hand side of the engine. It gets louder when I accelerate. Yesterday I lost all power after only driving it for 1km. The oil level is...


Check all of your belts and pullies. Sometimes it helps to remove the belts and turn the pullies by hand. Also run the engine without the belts for a few seconds. If the noise is still there, then it is most likely timing components rattling.

looks like not enough fuel pressure, check the fuel filter.
and the fuel pump pressure.with car running 60 psi
the pump is located at the rear seat driver side you have to remove the carpet to access the cover. if the fuel pressure checked "OK" suspect defective maf sensor (sometimes defective maf sensor do not show errors codes)another way to test is disconecting the maf sensor and start the car (computer goes to limp in mode) and works little better,or check by scanner idle= low grams per seconds and increase when accelerate.

Just got in my 2001 santa Fe tonight. Started ok, then started shuddering and check engine light went on. Didn't seem to want to accelerate. What could be the problem


this seems to be an engine pressure loss. a leakage in the headgasket or headgasket busy blowing. an engine gets it's power through the pressur it builds up. no pressure, no power. a good mechanic should help you. don't take it to hyundai. they will rip you off. shouldn't be an expensive exercise. otherwise it could be the 4weel drive system busy saying goodbuy. a secondhand unit shouldn't be too hard to find. may be a little expensive though. it can also make the car not to accelerate. good luck.
