2012 cbr 1000 check engine light 2 slow 3 fsst


warning lamp some used for warn low oil pressure, etc.
Wtith the bulbs use for most warning light circuit it is hard to determine whether or not the filamente is good. Will be a good idea to replace the bulb.
For test the faulty warning lamp, turn the ignition switch to START, this light the warning lamp. I f the light does not come on , disconnect the sender switch lead. . Use a jumper wier to connect the sender witch lead to ground. With the ignition in RUN the warning lamp should light. If the lamp is illuminated replace the sending switch. If the light does not come on,either the bulb is burned our or the wiring is damaged.Use test light for confirm voltage is present at the sensor terminal connector. If there the bulb is bad.
God bless you

Transmission shifts hard into second gear(auto trans). However, when shutting engine off and restarting, the hard shift will go away. It will come back in a few days. Doesn't seem to matter how many...


it may be a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ). it causes transmission shift issues, bucking,jerking, idle surging, engine cut off, surge while crusing down highway. if this does not solve problem, it may be a sticking valve body in transmission. have a good day !! for an automatic tranny.

When braking the oil gauge will read at it's lowest point and a warning ding will sound but when under power and driving normal speeds it works fine.


It is normal for the oil pressure fluctuate. this is caused by the oil pump not turning as fsst and pushing less oil. When the pressure starts to dip really low it is cause by the bearing wearing out and not holding the pressure. bearings normally wear out for two reasons, one is that it really high miles on the engine, the other is running it to low no engine oil. If you don't have really high miles , then I would look at the oil sending unit first. they can get clooged up and give bad readings.

1997 pontiac sunfire manual transmission won't shift out of gear.


What you can try is to remove the shift cables from the transmission side. then move the shifter and see if everything is free if it's still sticks then the cables are going to be replaced. if everything is moving with the cable off. then you need to remove the shift tower on the tranny (where the shift cable is I belive it's 5 bolts) remove the tower and you will see the shift pin. Inside the tower there is a cotter pin that breaks and that will cause you to have one gear and unable to selected another gear. If you are not mech inclined I would no attemped the shift tower repaire, the cables do it will save you money. The shift tower has bushings that can fall into the tranny.

1998 volkswagon jetta manual transmission is hard to shift


Transmission problem...

I'd check the fluid levels... on most if not all 98's there is no tranny fluid stick so you have to either look for the plug on the transmission. Most cars have 2. One on the bottom and one half way up from the bottom of the transmission driver's side. Top it off until the tranny fluid runs out of the hole.

If this doesnt help... you need to get it checked.

Slight miss in engine, hard shift from 1st to 2nd long 2nd gear


Check both O2 sensor(s) and catalytic coverter.. P0420 means catalyst below threshold. Also check the sensor at the transmission and solenoid.
