SOURCE: 1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

Check out the following. Year of model may be different but it should be pretty much in same location.

The fuel pump relay is located behind the 12 volt junction block and the fuel pump fuse holder on the earlier models.drivers side fire wall.on later models its located in the relay center on the right shock tower or in the right front corner of the engine compartment.

SOURCE: 1994 toyota corolla has a runs rough at idle and

I have a similar problem with one of my Toyota Corollas. It's a 95 model with the 1.8L engine (7A-FE, automatic). But unlike yours, it has plenty of power while running. Here's what it does. Occasionally the engine misses. Sometimes it will die. This is most likely to happen when you start the car and put it in reverse and start rolling without giving the engine time to adjust. I've been told by some customers that it will die sometimes when coming to a stop. But this has never happened when I drive it. I don't think it's a fuel issue because the car runs just fine when it's running.

Here's what I've tried so far:

  1. Replaced spark plugs and wires.
  2. Used gasoline additive fuel injector cleaner.
  3. Checked air filter.
  4. Checked vacuum hoses for leaks.
  5. Replaced PCV valve and hoses.
  6. Cleaned the air intake and throttle body with carburetor cleaner.
So far there is no change in the problem.

What I plan to do next:
  1. Check the throttle position sensor.
  2. Check the MAF sensor.
  3. Adjust the idle via the set screw.

After that I have no idea what to do next if the problem persists. The check engine light is not on so I don't think there are any error codes. Will let you know.

Toyota vitz with 1sz engine when I put in to drive or reverse has no power


Scan for any stored error codes and check the code discription. If no code is present suspect lack of fuel. Try cleaning fuel filters. If cleanig filters dont solve change the fuel pump

Lack of power, slight ticking


Check spark plugs, coils and spark plug leads. Check oil level, fuel filter and airfilters.

Power surging when accelerating


Fuel pressure Normal range is 35 to 70 PSI. Without the proper fuel pressure needed the vehicle surges and looses power especially goin up hill and at WOT(wide open throttle) . Its a good call if you change full filter your going to any way. you got a surge going on. Also check the airfilter once that plugs up it will also cause the surge. Surges happen when it lacks something so your getting less of some thing

Jeep Wangler is getting poor gas milage what could be the problem?


Bad fuel, dirty fuel filter, dirty air filter, dirty injectors. I'm assuming there's no check engine light on. You should get upwards of 20mpg easy. try replacing the airfilter and fuel filter. I would get a K&N airfilter, i've had great luck with them. you should notice amore power and better fuel efficiency. Also, use an injector cleaning additive, like Lucas, and use synthetic engine oil. it cost more, but you'll change it less often and it's worth it. I'm a fan of valvoline. oh, and make sure your tires are inflated properly, that can make a noticeable difference

POSSIBLE CAT CONVERTER OR FUEL FILTER ISSUE, MAKE SURE THE MASS AIR SENSOR IS CLEAN,USE BRAKE OR CARB CLEANER,AND AIRFILTER IS CLEAN WITH NO BLOCKAGE IN AIR BOX. GOOD LUCK.

Lack of power in gas pedal


Check fuel pressure and see if its around 30-35 psi while under load if not replace fuel pump, also the gas thats in the tank may be no good if it has sat for so long..

Very occassionally i have loss of power and black smoke from the exhaust of my ford focas tdci estate 2002 model. It lasts for only about 500 yards then the smoke clears and it surges forward and is o.k.....


MAF?

The mass airflow sensor is located right after the airfilter and can be the source of the problem you describe.

Sounds like it is overfuelling during these episodes.

Engine Dies in Idel


being a certified mechanic has its advantages. there are multiple causes for that problem: lack of air or lack of fuel.
make sure the air filter is mostly clean.
check throttle plate (where air filter tube goes into motor), most likely black with soot and carbon. clean with tooth brush and gas, wipe off with clean rag. repeat ultil CLEAN.
low air flow past plate when closed (idle) will cause stall condition.
dirty throttle body is a common problem with lots of cars. causes engine stall.

dirty fuel filter will also cause this problem.. low fuel pressure at idle.

I also believe that your car is equipped with an idle air control valve. (regulates a bypassed air flow to motor at idle) this valve may be stopped up or non-functional. have local shop take a look, but there are ways to check valve if you consider yourself mechanically inclined

Will not turn more than 3000 rpm


You need to check for a possible defective fuel pump or a restricted catalytic converter (excessive exhaust back pressure)
