Put a volt meter on the battery, and rev the engine until the light blinks, do not hold it there, just reach that engine speed breifly, watch the meter, does the voltage increase or decrease? If it does then your voltage regulator may be going bad, the regulator is inside the altenator, which may require replacement. It can be related to a wire that is broken or partially broken, so wiggle the wires at the altenator and battery while the engine is running at idle and conducting this test. Hope this helps, let me know

Several things to check. Check alternator drive belt tension, check alternator voltage output, with the engine running at fast idle connect a volt meter across the battery terminals, around 13 to14 volts is ok. check if there is a light on in the glove box or boot. how old is the battery is holding a charge .

Vehicle rev's or accelerates fine when started for just a minute. Then it wont rev up. When you push on the gas it just struggles. Wont really go much above 1500-1700 rpm. idles ok. It is a gasonline...


that sounds like a fuel delivery problem. either the filter is clogged or the pump is not delivering the right pressure. i assume you have no check engine light. this would not set one but other problems like sensors would. being 11 yrs old i would not be surprised if the fuel pump was worn out. good luck

Ignition problem on ford escort.


The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

1999 Escort I heard a pop from the engine and it


if it is a 1.9L engine you could have dropped a valve seat this is common with 1.9L engines and requires a new head and engine rebuild does the engine turn over and if it does is it really fast cause if its turning over really fast it would be a timming belt broken

Battery light stays on until I press the gas


Known issue to occur occasionally on VW/Audi. What is occurring is that the alternator is not spinning out fast enough to start charging, so the light is on. Once you rev the engine, the alternator starts to charge and remains charging till its shut off and restarted. It can be related to too low of an idle (not adjustable, unless you have a dirty throttle plate or air leak), the alternator itself (aftermarket or a bad rebuild) or an incorrect alternator pulley installed (too large).

Blinking battery light 99 323i


ehiter your battery is dying, or your alternatos is slipping.
try checking the tension on your belt, if is kinda loose maybe that's your problem.
if it's ok, then it may be your battery.
