I think you have an engine speed sensor fault. its not reading the engine speed or the motion speed. needs these two to change speed and ( gear). one is connected to the abs unit and the other is on the engine. usually if they both go its down to the gear box ecu. you can check if you have it on a ecu reader. will have fault codes or not be read at all.

Ny nissan 1994 cefiro model has what you call hiccups when driving, fuel pump has been changed including spark plugs, change oil done, cleaned the air intake as well, still has the hiccups?


Did you change spark plugs wires? fuel filter? I do not know if your car has MAF sensor, but if it does, clean it. Use CRC- Mass Air Flow Sensor cleaner. also check Spark Plugs Gap and coil (s)

I have a toyota and my car is parked up for a few hours when i go


Does it run rough when stalling at 1000rpm or does it seem like the rev limiter is taking over (just revs and stope). If running and just stopping you man wanna have your ECU reflashed (common problem). If running rough you may have some other issues and need a diagnostic. Try going to your local auto parts store and having a code scan (its free) and see what codes if any are present.

Periodically won't start. Starts up revs up then shuts itself down. If I just turn key it just cranks. If I pull key out and restart revs up and shuts itself down. I let set for a day and go out to start...


I had this same problem and couldn't figure it out, got fed up and replaced the fuel pump (turned out to be flex fuel) and it's been running fine ever since. This fuel pump is expensive.

99 volkswagen passat starts, then stalls, won't keep idle


I am having a similar problem on a 2003 Volkswagon Passat 1.8L 4 cylinder manual engine. My batter (after 10 years of service) died about a month ago. When the engine is cold and I start it up the engine (if I do not carefully add gas to rev the engine) will idle at around 200 to 400 RPM and then stall. The problem does not occur after the engine has been going for more than about 90 seconds. No check engine light is on. Ideas anyone?

Engine over revs at initial start up without touch accelerator. Shut down and restart, sometimes problems goes away.


it all depends on what yr the ford is b/c my grandmas car dose it a lot when you go to shut the car off make sure it is in park and it is in a idle then when you start it it should be fine if not go under the hood and see if it accelator can be lossened a littel bit if so it will save you on gas and the idle wont be as high. if that dose not work then dont worrie about it it wont harm the car any and dont pump the gas pedall while the car is not running

Automatic choke stopped working- difficulty start- revs dropping low at stop


Quick and easy attempt to fix might be to try some fuel injector cleaner,the purple bottle stuff I put in, is only about $3 a bottle, and seems to eliminate similiar symptoms brought on by bad gas.
