Several items can cause this...throttle position sensor, idle air control valve, bad ignition wires, cap or rotor or even fouled plugs or a vacuum leak. Best thing you can do is obtain an inexpensive manual such as chiltons or haynes and do some testing. Worst thing you can do is start buying parts and replacing everything till the problem is solved (that most times will cost more than a visit to the dealer)
No decent shop will do any repairs without first testing, neither should you.

A whirring sound coming from transmission while driving


Have you checked the transmission fluid level? Sometimes when they are low on fluid they will make a whining noise. Also, are you sure that it is the transmission? Could it be the power steering pump? Fords are notorious for having noisy power steering pumps, at least on older vehicles.

Check engine light is on. Engine sounds like it's knocking. And oil light is coming on. This 2008 Dodge Dakota has only 63,000 miles.


Sometimes that light means overfill oil
Sometimes after changing oil if they put too much that happens
Check the oil level on cold in level place (give it like an hour or so) for the light to reset
If after that the light still on take it to a tech.

Good luck

I'd have to check your charging system, at idle. Any applicable trouble codes? At idle, I'd want to see the generator out-put over 13 volts, hopefully, much over.
You may want to check instrument cluster wiring connector for good voltage and ground?
Check belt for generator, correct tension? Just my opinion.

The steering wheel is getting stiff because the engine is dying, so it is not driving your power steering pump fast enough to give you proper pressure. I would first check your IAC, which will be located on the throttle body, and is what controls your idle.

I have a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the gauge inside tells me that the engine is over heating, no heat is coming from the heater when I turn it on, the fan for the engine is running at full blast, the engine...


Hi,

The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

Sounds to me like it could be a bad oil sending unit or gauge. I would take it in to a shop and have them test the oil pressure with their equipment.
If they tell you the pressure is good try changing the oil sending unit first then if that don't work, replace the gauge.

My Fiat Punto (Reg Sep 2005) has started having problems with the power steering light coming on intermittenlty. Steering has not yet failed, so far, but I am becoming worried it might. Any answers?...


your power steering will fail at some point. you need to replace the electrick steering motor. they give alot of trouble to help stop this happening again you should never use the city button that makes the steering light as this makes the motor burn out sooner.

Temperature gauge is inaccurate and check engine light comes on but its not over heating and everything else is fine can it be a sensor ? The temperatue gauage didn't read anything for months but now...


Have you checked the antifreeze level lately? Low antifreeze will cause a temp sensor to give false readings. Does your heater work OK, as in does it blow hot air when heater is on? that is another symptom of low antifreeze.

As far as the check engine light coming off and on, I would bet it is the oxygen sensor that might need to be replaced.
