While driving 2006 impala down the road, car tries to stall lights interior and exterior flash, but car never stalls and regains power immediately?


You have a power wire rubbing the chassis somewhere in the harness that when it slightly touches metal the voltage drops and causes the flickering and will make the computer act up. Finding exactly where the short is occurring will be a tedious and time consuming inspection of the wiring.

While driving i noticed steam coming from under the hood, so i immediately pulled over and turned the car off and the motor was bubbling. I let the motor cool off and then checked the fluid level and it...


Thermostat needs to be replaced. Refill the coolant after the engine is completely cool. If its still hot the coolant will expand and make it look like the radiator is full. Temp light won't always come on for a thermostat issue.

Thinhking its the ecm


The ecm does not control the dashboard lights. I would start by checking battery, alternator and starter connections. Also, Gm uses aluminum wire and to check for white corrosion on ends of heavy gage cable.

My 95 tahoe has an occasional ticking noise, loss of oil pressure at idle and loss of power


Prognosis is really bad, hate to tell you. Ticking comes from the valve lifters, losing lubrication due to lack of pressure and running dry. At redlights, when revs are at idle, oil pressure drops a lot, and engine really suffers. Have the vehicle taken immediately to a shop for proper diagnose and to see if engine can still be saved. The loss of power comes from the valves not actuating properly. Hydraulic lifters need oil at a decent pressure to "charge" , and if not charged, they will stay compressed, ruining valve lifting operation.

My throttle body on my Saturn SL2 is NASTY!! It's got about a 1/4 inch of black tar inside it. Could that be why it is smoking? I'm not losing any oil, antifreeze, or tranny fluid. It's a 1996...


That could be why: So little air may be getting through, that it is causing it to run very rich. First thing to do, while the engine is running, spray a little of that EFI cleaner down the throttle body. Then, IMMEDIATELY, shut the engine off (You don't want tar going INTO the engine). After that, try and get the throttle body off, and CAREFULLY scrape away the road ****. Don't damage the injectors. Clean it nice, and see if it runs a bit better. Best wishes, and I'm curious how it got so much build up! It could cause worse problems down the road if there is tar in the engine ...

What will cause a truck to lose all oil pressure and the engine to shut off while driving down the road?


If wires came off oil pressure switch or if switch went bad, it would shut down truck immediately. Your oil pressure switch performs 2 functions; oil pressure to gauge.light and it's also a safety feature that if you're in an accident or rollover, when oil pressure drops it shuts off power to fuel pump. I'd start there. The reverse is also a possibility, if fuel pump fails, truck shuts down = no oil pressure.

Power loss


i think there was a re call for this car & there was a problem with ignition switch. i was searching on other forums for the fix. i got a fix that there is a problem with ignition switch. so just try & replace ignition switch which would not cost u more than $100. Try it & post if your problem is fixed. Also if u have any othr solution then also fix this problem.
