I have the same problem. I tried everthing and nothing worked until I found a vaccum line that is leaking air between the throttle body and the fire wall on the passenger side where there are a junction of three vac. lines meeting. I replaced and the both the code and engine light never came back yet after 120 driving.

I still have to reset the I/M monitors for emmisions.

For your P0304 error, it may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty spark plug or wire
* Faulty coil (pack)
* Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
* Faulty fuel injector
* Burned exhaust valve
* Faulty catalytic converter(s)
* Running out of fuel
* Poor compression
* Defective computer
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors. This was originally posted here.

As to the P1130, this error code refers to "Swirl Control Valve Control Solenoid Valve". Additionally, you might find this link informative of other Nissan related error codes.

Corrective measures would require verification of faulty components and of course replacement and eventually resetting the computer/blackbox.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Obd code C0502 on 97 chevy k1500

CO502 is a Vehicle Speed Sensor Code. I'm working on trying to resolve an issue with my own right now. I know I had some wiring issues a while back with the VSS and thought I had it all resolved. I didn't know that I still had an issue until I was installing my Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer today when it gave me this code.

What do I need to do to clear the flashing engine light, I started up my car and it is running rough, doing alot of shaking.

You need to resolve your engine issue(s) and then the engine light will stop. There are error codes in the computer, pull those (takes a reader) and resolve the issues indicated. REMEMBER that error codes are a clue, not a solution.

My 03 had an O2 sensor code and intermittent drivability issues; replaced Sensors and still had code and intermittent drivability issues. Two days later #1 Ignition Coil failed. Replaced the Coil and all issues are now resolved. My point is you may be getting the P code but what is the underlying issue. If there are drivability issues it could be as simple as a spark plug or an injector expressing itself in another manner. If you swap the plugs DO NOT Overtighten them! Good Luck! Let us know how you resolve this issue.

Engine management light came on,3 times.reset at main dealers.First two times it came back on fairly quickly,but after 3rd reset it seems to be ok.Also when light came on,the esp light came on and the car...

Something is wrong, pull the codes and investigate. Resetting the light does not resolve the issue. Something more serious is happening, find it and resolve the issue adn the light will settle down.

My 92 honda accord ex as a rough idle at stop and if i put in it reverse the idle is alot rougher. it idle at 750rpm

Typically this a result of bad motor mounts, I had the same issue with my 92 honda accord, changing the side mounts and the strut up front resolved the issue. The Trans mount, behind the motor is the most difficult mount to change and requires you to unbolt the other mounts and roll the motor far enough forward to gain access to that mount, but once all 4 mounts are replaced your issue should be resolved

Vibration in the steering wheel on a 4wd truck

I just had the same issue with a 1999 2500HD and the vibration got worse above 50 mph. Problem was resolved with a new driveshaft. Old one (aluminum) was badly out of true and the problem didn't really occur until I had the U joints changed - then bent driveshaft vibration was noticeable. New driveshaft resolved issue.

My speedomter, odometer, and tacometer does not work at times in a 1998 Honda Civic. What could be wrong?

Sometimes the little wheel or scroll switch to dim and brighten the Interior lights fail. But or get dust between the contacts. Sometimes just working it a few times will resolve the issue. If it does not your will have to replace it. WE hope this helps resolve your issue
