SOURCE: my 2007 chevy cobalt's engine shut down and when

I hope you went right back to the oil shop and told them they left the plug out. I would hold them liable, you cooked your engine, It might come round, but it won't be right. The next thing to go, if it ever runs again will be the head gaskets, and it will keep on getting worse. Take them to court if you have to.

It shut off while driving, no warning, no beep no light it just shut down and won't start. I took the air intake hoses off and found oil in there...is this a turbo problem and can it be rebuilt?


Turbo wont cause it not to start. Oil in induction hoses is normal at higher mileage and does not mean needs a turbo again. If turbo sprayed out oil whilst driving you would know about it....masses of smoke from exhaust and unconrtollable engine rpm. Sounds more like a failed CPS (crank sensor) or electrical issue.

I've changed my engine mounts 3 times on my 2004 A4 cabreolet and they fail within miles(start to vibrate & then within a week, severe knocking) the 2nd time, also changed the ****** mount, 3r


Engine mounts do not go bad in five miles. Sounds like you're treating a symptom and not the cause of a more serious issue. Are you sure all cylinders are firing correctly? That the severe knocking is not coming from your engine internals? Have you checked the steel around the engine mounting points for cracks or other damage? And just in case, if the mounts you are using are poly, are you lubing them before installation?

I have a 2005 ford focus that shut down... My husband was returning home after work and the oil light came on..... Checked the oil and added some... Then he went back to work and the oil light came on and...


Could be a locked up oil pump if you're fortunate. It sounds though like you've broken or seized a bearing or several.
Have a really good,honest mechanic take a look.

Have tapping noise in oil pan area of 2004 5.3l chev silverado owned since new. noise started suddenly. Seems to quieten down some after warmed up. Speeds up with RPM's... opinion on what cause is ? -...


Sounds like a worn big end bearing. Not a disaster as you have caught it early. Drain engine of oil and remove pan. Remove spark plugs and disconnect battery. Undo big ends, fit new bearings, refit the big ends and tighten to specified torque. Might be an idea to also replace main bearings as a preventative measure whilst everything is open. The main journals on the crank are probably fine. Check the journal facings of the removed bearings and determine not only how much wear but the wear type. I would try using 5-40 (or 5 -50) fully synthetic multigrade oil but not change it so frequently (15K is plenty). These oils are thin when cold and help avoid high shear forces within the bearings at cold temperatures whilst keeping a good viscosity at high running temperatures - good for the more mature engine. Because they are fully synthetic they keep their properties for a very long time. Good luck

Reset button for change oil


  1. Turn the ignition to "ON", with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the "CHANGE OIL" lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  3. Turn the key to "OFF".
  4. If the "CHANGE OIL" lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure

2004 maxima - transmission stuck w/engine shut off


It sounds like a tork conveter lockup switch, have the transmisson serviced oil and filter changed then and add Lucas transmisson treatment to help smooth out hte shifting pattern and stop the problem if there was drag on the clutches it may have stalled out.

Car shut itself down?


If the engine overheated for any length of time, it may have some fried rubber hoses and worse, a blown head gasket. If the latter has occurred, in the next couple of hundred miles, oily deposits may show up in the coolant overflow bottle or an emulsion of coolant and oil on the dipstick. This will look like dirty hand creme if it happens. If the gasket fails badly enough, there may be leakage of oil or coolant on the block below the junction with the head. If the gasket fails between cylinders, the engine may seem really tired or misfire and eat fuel. 
Worst case; damaged piston rings, rod and crankshaft bearings along with damage to other seals and gaskets.
For right now, I would make sure the cooling system gets tight again, the oil is changed (it may have chunks of burned oil in it) and drive conservatively with ears open and NO MUSIC for a few days to listen for irregular engine noises that could be caused by the engine damage described.
