Question about 1990 Chrysler New Yorker

1 Answer

When im sitting at a red light, the check battery light comes on and it will idle really low to the point where it feels like the engine is about to die but it never does, what does this mean? also another question: sometimes when i first start the car up the speedometer shoots back and forth while im driving until i drive about 3-5 miles and it goes back to normal, what does that mean as well?

First question, it sounds to me like your altenator. If you hear a squeak coming from under the hood, it could be your altenator. If you do not hear a squeak, that does not mean it is 100% not your altenator. There is still a good chance that your altenator is not producing a good enough of a charge to your battery.

and your second question sounds like a problem i had with a 1997 pontiac grand am. I personally think that you need a tune up. I would be sure to get platinum spark plugs, and use sythetic oils to keep your car running strong... good luck

I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 3.9 ltr with 99500 miles on it. The code im getting is misfire cyl # 2. Ive changed the plugs wires rotor cap etc reset the code and it still comes back on after a second...


If you have individual injectors, try switching one with another and see if the code moves-also consider the possibility that you have low compression in that cylinder. you might try to reset the ecu by disconnection of the battery for 5 minutes, and clean terminals and battery lugs, then reconnect it and let it idle so sensors 'relearn'-you should let it idle for a few minutes, then drive it gently for a couple more, then normally-adaptive ecu will relearn all sensors, and it may fix the CEL issue.

2003 ranger. With enging running alternator light comes on steady until the engine slows to low idle at which point light goes out. As soon as rpm increases light comes back on.


Attach a multimeter to battery and set at DC voltage. Measure voltage output at idle, then rev engine until light comes on and check again. That will tell you whether it's an overcharge or lack of charging causing the problem. Make sure you check belt condition and tension before, to eliminate that as a cause.

Check charging system light and check battery light come on at begining of low idle. voltage at battery terminals during high idle was 14.5 vdc, and at low idle 12.65 vdc. engine speed did not seem to...


Your generator is pcm controlled. So is the charge indicator. Any charging system trouble codes? The gencom circuit is signal from pcm to generator. The genmon signal is from generator to pcm. Even at idle if you turn on a load, there should be a reaction, engine speed may increase as well as generator output. By load,I'm talking about headlamps or hvac something. At the moment I can't rule out your generator? I hate to see you replace anything and it not fix it?

Idle sensor is bad. Find a autozone for check engine light they will connect to computer for free, and tell u what codes come up they can give u a printout also.

Low rpm on start up, check engine light came on.


If you dont have a code reader go to Autozone and have them read them for you. it sounds as if you may have a defective sensor. It may be a simple cheep solution to try to clean your mass air flow sensor. You Can do this by taking some brake parts spray cleaner to clean it up. the brake parts cleaner dosent leave any residue so it wont harm the sensor. If you dont know where the sensor is located it is usually located just after the air filter box.

Low Oil Pressure on 1992 Chevy 1500 Pickup Truck


Hi! The problem you are outlining is very similar to the Rover V8 (Buick engine). We Brit's are used to the low oil pressure when warm. I presume a complete oil change engine flushed with new replacement filter has been carried out? Maybe a top quality synthetic oil with additive may help. You may take it a little further and replace the oil pump with an after market performance up rated one. If you really are worried about low oil pressure damage whilst in low rev's try Molybnenum Disulphide an oil additive which really reduces friction metal to metal wear particulary in the situation you are describing.
That's the best I can suggest at this moment.
Good Luck! and Happy New Year!
