I have a 2007 Mazda CX7, Yesterday I got in my car to go to work & the check engine light came on. Now the car is just chugging along.


It could be a multitude of problems. You can probably try spark plugs and air filter (probably wouldn't hurt if you haven't changed them for a while), but you may still need to take it for service. Sometimes you can take it to an auto parts store (NAPA, O'Reilly, etc) or auto service center and they will check it with their computer.

94 Camry steering hard to turn like it has no power steering. It has the rack replaced and steering knuckle replaced


Does the power steering have fluid in it. Is the belt on the pump. With it running take the cap off of the pump and see if fluid is moving around. If u feel the steering knucle is to tight u can also take the tie rod off and see if it turns free. Also go back to who fixed it and say its not right, Make it right. Most garages give 12 month or 12.000 mile warranty.

2005 cobalt stalling out


If the power steering is tight and does not loosen up,i would say the power steering pump is locked up.With the engine not running ,remove the drive belt from the engine.Try and turn the power steering pulley with your hand.It should be easy to turn,turn it 4 or 5 times all the way around.If you can not move the pulley,or it stops,or gets tight turning it all the way around,then it is a bad power steering pump.This is something you will want a mechanic to do.If I can help,let me know.

My car is barely starting (tuning over). each time I try it gets even worse. It feels like the battery is low but nothing was left on. 2006 Nissan Pathfinder - same problem, started like a champ 2 days...


Check all your connections, make sure they are all clean & tight. Do you have a multimeter available for a voltage check at battery, before & after starting?

CHUGGING FEELING


I had a very similar problem. I work at a ford dealership so, I had a tech look for codes. He found a trouble code, He took my 'MAF' mass air flow censor apart and cleaned it (it had some gunk on it). He then disconnected the battery to reset the computer then, reconnected it. Problem solved! more power, starts better, runs better even better mpg. remember to unhook the battery to reset computer and when you do, hold the brake pedal down for about a minute to drain the power from all the capacitors before you reconnect the battery. Hope this helps good luck, Sean
