I have 2006 Honda Accord se, engine lite started flashing then permantly on bout 1 1/2 moths. Now won't start but belt still goes round, what could it be?


You drove with a flashing check engine light and then with it on solid. Flashing check engine light means STOP DRIVING and get it fixed. So this sounds like an abused and neglected car to me. Get the trouble codes read that are stored in the computer. Check for good fuel pressure and spark. Fix one or both.

2005 Ford Freestar, altenator went out, During the process the Brake/ABS dash lights came on, when the battery got low, The transmission shifts fine, working normal.


ok you changed the altenator did you do this yourself ? now take off the battery cables and reconnect them to clear the trouble codes and use your key fob when the alarm sounds to stop it from going into theft mode put the key in the ignition and turn it to the run position do not try to start it yet wait about 3 minutes for the system to get all the voltage parameters back then turn the key off then start the car it may idle rough at first do not apply any gas peddle just let it run after the idle stabilizes drive the vehicle so it can continue to relearn the operating system parameters if the lights come on again take it to auto zone or advance ETC. to get it scanned but I think you should be ok the system works by voltage and being the altenator went bad the systems voltage was way down causing the codes good luck Stephen

Should the overdrive be on and does it affect gas mileage?


as a rule, no. many overdrives are automatic and don't engage until you reach 40- 45 mph and they do this by themselves. yes, this does affect gas mileage because the purpose of overdrive is to shift the transmission into a higher gear producing less strain on motor and ****** thereby increasing fuel mileage. conversely, if ****** is in high gear at lower speeds this increases strain (motor feels like it's lugging) reducing mileage. sounds as though you have manually selective overdrive and you will have to monitor mileage both with button pushed and without. then try pushing the button only when you reach 40-45 but you'll have to be continually conscious of the speeds at which you're driving.

Do you drive in overdrive all the time or 3rd/1994 chevy 1/2 ton shortbed/6 cyl


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
It's not wise to drive on overdrive everytime. When you are cruising that's when OD should beused.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Speedomer stops working, but the odometer is fine. If i buy a used unit can it be programmed for the correct mileage?


Yes, only if you take it to the dealer and they send it out for you, then you gonna have to pay more than the price of a new one, get a used one. and deal with the miles more or less.

I am geting a ping when i exelorate in my gmc 350 it is 94 2500 van i changed gas went to a hoter plug a freind told me to try seting my timing dot's at 6 oclock with #8 tdc then try to advance or ******...


How many miles? GM engines (dont get me wrong i love 'em) are bad about lifter rattle at high mileage. i wouldnt advance the timing too far for fear of the engine running hotter, try changing to a high mileage oil, maybe even synthetic which has worked for me in the past, so I only use it now form day one.

Poor gas mileage after a long trip on my 2008 Chevy HHR


How about Fuel filter? How many miles on vehicle? In some cases a fuel filter can cause this as well as a "lazy" o2 sensor. If to lazy, ecm will set check engine lite.
