Hi, I've sent my toyota prado 1998 (RZJ 95, engine 3RZ, petrol) to diagnostic and it shows 3 error codes: 1. code 31: intake air pressure sensor vacuum sensor signal abnormal 2. code 14: IGT or IGF...

To have so many different codes at the same time indicates that the first place to start looking is the wiring harness itself. Locate the MAP (manifold air pressure sensor - code 31) and IAT (inlet air temperature sensor - code 24) connections. Disconnect and reconnect each sensor a few times and check that the connecting socket and pins are clean and free of corrosion - the codes indicate intermittent breaks. Check all fuses are clean and well mounted. Examine wiring harness for chafing, abrasion and signs of wear. Any intervening connections between the wiring harness and electronic control unit (ECU) need to be checked over and should be free of oily grime.

Hi.\r\ My problem is, everytime I take my foot of the gaz pedal the engine stop. The car is in the shop presently and he is having me changing everything I allready spend $1400.00 for a tuneups and the...

Before anything else is replaced that is not needed, there are 3 things that should be checked first,
throttle position sensor
idle air control valve
fuel bypass valve
I think it's more the idle air control valve, if the valve is not working right the car can't idle cause lack of fuel getting through, but will run with foot on the gas pedal, it just might need a good cleaning, the pintle inside could be sticking. If it's too bad, then it will need to be replaced. Good luck.

2003 ZX2 idling very rough after having alternator changed. Idling between 500 and 900RPM. How can I advance the timeing?

You can't easily advance timing on these engines. Remove the belt on the new alternator and check if it spins reasonably easily and there is no bad bearing in the new unit.

Also check that the wires coming from the alternator are not frayed. Especially check that the wire going to the postive battery terminal do not have any small fragments of wire touching the frame of the car, engine block, etc. This will cause a short circuit and really load down your alternator (make is seem like it is running rough but really just trying to spin the heavy load on the alternator from idle RPMs).

Mitsubishi space star (x reg) stalling on idling and on stopping

This problem apears when the battery has been diconected for some time. Start the car, and leave in in idle without driving it for about 10 min. The car runs fine after that.
