My honda civic 1.7 diesel 2004 starts dropping speed suddenly shift gears up or down it won't make any difference can press acceleration it won't make any different the rev counter won't go past 2000...


Whens the last time you change your fuel filter. The other problem could be the fuel pump. Our you using Bio Diesel or regular Diesel ?
Some Bio Diesel will not burn hot enough to give you the power.

Electrical has become possessed


I would say you will have to find a shop that specializes in wiring and electronics. Chances are you have problems with the wiring under the dash, even the key switch. It may take several days and alot of money to find all of the problems and get them fixed.
Most of the problems you mentioned involve the wiring behind the instrument cluster and the body control module.

While driving my tachometer doesnt go straight to 0 when i stop. It stays around 3/4 close to 1. Is this a concern? 2001 acura cl type s


Hi Eveerei, If you're asking about the tachometer and not the speedo meter, that meter records the engine RPM speed and not the vehicle ground speed The tachometer at idle (when you stop at a traffic light, stop street or any other stop) should record an engine speed of about seven hundred to seven fifty revolutions per minute, at idle. It will increase in relationship to how hard you push your foot on the accelerator pedal. Hope this info helps you. Happy new year and regards John

I have a 1999 Honda Accord that when I drive my car will cut off in the process. When I stop it will crank after like 4 tries. What I dont get is the air still be on and the radio.


My 1998 did that too, and the culprit was the Main Relay under the dashboard, that controls electricity from the ignition to the computer and other parts. This part will start failing usually in hot weather, or high humidity, until it fails completely. Other reason could be that the idle speed sensor is not controlling rpm´s as it should, and when you let off the gas, the engine dies.
The radio and the blower of the A/C continue to work because the ignition is still in the ON position. Only way to recognize that the engine has died when rolling along, is with the KEY icon on the dashboard, the tachometer going to zero rpms, and evidently the lack of power when you press it. It is disconcerting because the brakes continue to work for a few pumps, and everything else seems to be normal, except for the minor detail that the engine has died.

My 530i dashboard lights (ABS and stability along with the airbag lights) started flashing while in stop and go traffic. Once traffic started to flow again, the lights went off until I hit another patch...


Hi David,

Sounds very suspicious of a failing alternator. BMW alternators are notorious for failing when hot. I would high recommend having the alternator checked while hot..ie after a long test drive. Usually the voltage regulators fail, but I would recommend the entire alternator. Both Bosch and Valeo brands are usually interchangeable. I would recommend the cheaper price of the 2. It could save you a few hundred dollars.

AC died, a belt is broken, now no tachometer or power


It probably ran the alternator too and without it the battery ran down so the engine went dead without any power.
