Could be your spark plugs or the cables are getting old. that or your battery is getting up in age and losing the cold crank charge for the car to turn over. if not that i would have the air intake sensor looked at might be not getting a correct oxygen intake reading and the sensor couldbe causing you the problem.. just some ideas.. hope they could help.

What do these codes mean on a diagnostics check? c, ev, o, oh,e? what are these numbers for ISO9141 KWP2000 and why does it steady blink on monitor then say backfire problems?


you need to read the manual for the machine you are hooking to the vehicle .
These are errors not codes you need to understand how it works better.

Car won't start. Sounds like the engine flooded. Not the starter. Also loses power going uphill and when accelerating.


Check Engine Light flashing when accelerating ,severe engine misfire . Something in the ignition system is breaking down under a load . If the starter engages an spins the engine when you turn the key to start an it doesn't start an run , it has no spark or fuel pressure . If you don't know this or how to diagnose .suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Pull two plug wires off the top of the same coil an crank the engine , if you do not see a spark jump from one coil tower to the other you have an ignition system problem . ignition module or crankshaft position sensor

Sounds like it was flooded. Next time it happens. keep gas pedal all the way to the floor and hold until it fires. water in the gas, or just bad gas can do this. But if you pumped it at all while trying to start it if fuel injected can flood it. Let it sit and try again, or keep gas pedal to ground and hold until starts.

You are probably having a problem with your Electronic Throttle Control System (ETS) It is necessary to collect data from your Engine Control Module (ECM) to diagnose the problem.

1995 TAHOE BLOWS HOT AIR OUT THE VENTS DURING ACCELERATION


Did you mean the only time it blows hot air is under acceleration?

First thing check the coolant level in the radiator. If coolant is low the first hing to stop working is the heat.

If the coolant level is fine but the coolant is muddy I woulds suspect a plugged heater core. You can try back flushing it by removing both heater hoses (engine cold) and then use a garden hose to flush clean water through the heater core. Do this on both pipes going into the heater core. Keep flushing until the water runs clear. Re attache the the hoses, remove the radiator cap, start the engine, let the engine come up to temp and top off the radiator with straight coolant (to comp for the water in the heater core). You may have to repeat this process several times over several days but you should be able to get it cleared enough to get sufficient heat without having to replace it.

1989 toyota supra hesitates and won't start


If Engine Starts with accelerator pedal depressed , check idle speed control valve (if equipped) and wiring connection. Did you check for vacuum leaks. Do you know if your ignition timing is correct? How did you check your fuel pump? I take it no codes have been set, so if not there are several things to check for when the engine stalls #1 is to check cold start injector and cold start injector time switch. If engine stalls sometimes- check airflow meter and connectors You can tap the connector or relay or wiggle and notice if there is a slight change in the engine idle.

91 jeep randomly wont start; also spits/sputters on acceleration


First (I"M starting to sound like a broken record on this) check the ground connections at both ends of the cable.(smaller body grounds as well) Make sure they are clean where they make contact with block and terminal post (not just on the outside.) Make sure hot wire is also clean and fastened correctly. Right now, we are trying to find out what it's not., Then, you can get to what it is.Often small stupid things can look like other larger problems.
