Hyundai Excel X3 / Accent X3 has trouble starting, a lot of vibrating and shaking.


This is starting to sound very much like a blocked catalytic converter on the exhaust system. Try unbolting the exhaust in front of the catalytic unit and see if it will start and run normally. If it does then the unit needs replacing, if not then thats me tapped out for ideas.

Service engine light stays on. air bag light came on and off. engine shake battery light flashes ,started struggle to stay on then van stall. after stalling switch on the van it does not struggle but...


You need to have the codes removed from the computer so you have a rough idea as to where to start looking for your problem.Any autozone or checkers or advanced auto parts stores usually do this test for free.Once you get these codes you will have a good place to start looking for your problem.I don't want to mislead you as to where to look but without the codes that's what I would be doing.I would also get your battery tested to make sure its got a full charge if not replace the battery.These new computers need a minimum of I think its 9 volts to operate properly but Im not positive.Also try giving it a complete tune up gas filter,spark plugs and wires and air filter and see if that makes a difference to.

I have a 2002 AUTO Audi A4. About 2 minutes into


Dear produceqa_de,

I am not entirely familliar with this particular model, although in some similar models that I have worked on The epc (on deisel models) usualy indicates a problem with the particle filter.

This means that if your car has a particle filter and it has not reached a temperature that it can clean itself for a few months, it may become clogged and cause a restriction for the engine.

If you take your car to an audi dealer the mechanic will be able to do a quick test to confirm and he may then be able to overide the cleaning process and clean the filter. I would advise that this is done asap as dammage may be caused from very high exhaust temperatures.

Reguards Luke.

Can a toxic fume filter send a megane 2 into limp mode


Not directly, but the engine ECM and Transmission TCM are connected, so if the engine is running badly, this will effect on the transmission, and may confuse the TCM and make it go into limp mode.
Hope this helps

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.
