Have it checked. Have the codes scanned. It could be anything. If it's running good then it could just need services. Either way, have the codes scanned.

Go to Advance Auto Parts. They will plug the computer that pulls the code out of the computer for you at no charge. If you try to have them do that at any mechanic shop it's 50-100 bucks. Then you'll know the problem and go from there.

My 96 Lumina, 3.1L has 94,000 miles and today during normal driving the service engine soon light came on and at idle the engine seems to be skipping or missing

If you know the plugs are fine then an ignition wire or a coil will cause the same symptom . If you had a code reader it would show you which cylinder is causing the miss. Beyond that a compresion test is needed.

Toyota MR2 spyder engine failure

when an engine overheats that bad , the cost to rebuild is generally close to a fully reconditioned exchange engine
check the wreckers / junk yards for a good engine of the same family group as is on the compliance plate /build plate on your car ( many such places import engines with low miles/klm that are in top condition
the rebuild will include new head or head rework , new pistons and rings , bearings , engine re-bore and all of that will not include the labour charges
burning a motor is not an inexpensive experience and that is why I suggest a second hand motor or a service exchange motor for an accredited engine reconditioning shop

I have a 2002 honda accord, V6 with 42,000 miles,,,yes,,,42,000 miles The check engine light went on, the dealer checked the code "p0780" Replace transmission. Can this be right?

The code you have P0780 is an internal hydraulic problem in the transmission. I did some research on this trouble code and the repair manual Say's to replace the torque converter clutch solenoid valve/shift solenoid valve A, and the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valves A and B.

In plain English these are the shift solenoids and torque converter solenoids. These solenoids control the fluid flow to the transmission and if they are not working properly then p0780 will set.

The bad news is the repair manual Say's to replace these solenoids and if the problem is still present then replace or overhaul the transmission because the problem is internal.

Most repair shops are not going to take the risk and just replace the solenoids, they will replace or overhaul the transmission.

2004 Sonata almost stalling and check engine light is on

Cleaning the fuel line was a good idea although it will need time to take effect. Another related problem could be clogged or stuck fuel injectors. Another thing to do is pull the spark plugs. Old or dirty spark plugs also contribute to engine sluggishness. Lastly, bring the car to an autoparts store that features free diagnostic tests. If there are any error codes stored on the car's computer, it would give you an idea where to look for any electrical problems.

Service engine light comes on , p0420 code

the light can be caused by any one or combination of over 200 trouble codes, go to any kragen or Autozone parts store and ask for a trouble code test, it is free, then record the code(s) they come up with and post them back on fixya
