I have a toyota camry 220sei it cranks bt doesnt start. When l push it,it starts. Bt when it starts the rev counter doesnt pass 2 and when it moves doesnt rev more than 2

On the diagnostic plug under the bonnet you can bridge out TE1 and E1 and read the fault code on the cluster if it gives any. Is it a 1993 to 1997 model.

Bmw 530d cranks over for 30 seconds before firing up, hot or cold

Try turning the ignition on (not to turn the engine over but only on) for 5 seconds and then off then repeat that three or four times then try and start it. If it starts up immediately after that then you have a fuel pressure problem and by doing this you are priming up the high pressure fuel rail. possible causes are a fuel filter blockage, if you dont know the history of the fuel filter then replace it, or could be a pump issue or a pressure regulator on the rail issue.

I have bmw 530d 2004 plate when you put your foot down it feels like there is something stopping the power with slight pulling back its just had service aswell thanks for any help

hi these cars are fitted with rev limiters, if you try to take the car over the red line, it will limit the car so as to not over rev the engine, if however you are not getting to the red line on the rev counter, then the limiter may be faulty, the only way to find this out would be through the dealers sorry....hope this helps sorta..please vote thanks

Hi i have a 99 323i e46 i drove it home today and i pushed it to its limit but then the car started to **** and lose power and you could feel the car vibrating inside the cabin. the engine light came on...

Several things but 2 occur to me. did it have ample oil and water, and, did it do this while the rev counter was up high?. The first you can sort, the second, it probably has a rev limiter over which , the engine will not go. Slow it down a bit and it it should be back to normal.

Starts first time , then sometimes won't after short run

Hi there,

Had the same problem with my motor it was the camshaft sensor and it's easy to fit yourself. Mine would start first time when cold then after driving even short distances wouldn't start. Hope this helps.
