Your vehicle is still under warranty. I would bring it right to the dealer as it is way too soon for a problem like that and for you to have to worry about it.

Hello sir

if the lights flicker and the motor doesn't start you have a dead battery. If everything works alright and the lights just flicker, It's the excited gas hog anticipating sucking up more gas winking at you.

    Your problem is most likely with the battery. Check your voltage or have your mechanic professionally test it with a carbon pile tester. In most cases when this happens your battery is dead, however there is a chance that your battery is fine and your altenator isnt charging the battery. Try and throw a new battery in there and see what happens! If the same thing occurs after a few days then you'll know its your altenator.Make sure you carry around some jumper cables!

    hello sir

    Your throttle pedal is electronic and not controled by cables anymore. So there is sensor that sense's what postion your throttle body needs to be opened or closed. The sensor probably needs to be replaced. The whole pedal assembly will have to come out and be replaced as it is all one unit. They are easy to take out.

    You can try resetting the ETC as well. Place you vehicle in the run position without starting and depress the gas pedal and release all in 2 seconds (1 down and 1 up). You should hear a confirmation "ding" if done correctly and you have know reset the sensor to know when you have open throttle.

    thank u

E 280 w211 runs fine. Recorded 59.3 mpg on long run at 65mph in cruise. If left on tickover for a few mins ie junction or traffic lights blue smoke from exhaust. Car does not burn oil

Bad valve stem seals will cause smoke under these circumstances. It will get worse. The reason this happens is because the higher engine vacuum present in traffic will pull oil past the worn valve stem seals into the cylinder. When you accelerate again, the engine burns this small amount of oil causing the smoke.

My temp gauge goes to H after driving 15 mins, my radiator & hoses are not leaking, theRes no steam , water pump works and thermostat was already removed. Anyone have idea of what it could be?

Do you see bubbles comming to the surface in the radiator as the engine is running --if you do --leaky head gasket -- if not you need to repace the sending unit for the temperature guage --- if this does not cure the problem you need to replace the cluster of guages on dash -- could be quite expensive to do the last cure

I have a 91 nissan maxima and it runs find for about 15-20 min. and it truns off. I wait a few min. and it runs for an other 15-20min. and turns off. can any one help me. thanks Mr. Garcia

Sounds like an overheating component. If there is not a "check engine" light on in the dash, then you have a bad part which is not monitored by the onboard computer.

Sometimes Relays will overheat, other times a bad fuelpump will easily do this. When the exhaust starts to heatup, the feedback from the O2 sensors can reset the fuel mix and stall an engine.

About all you can do is check the test port on the fuel rail for fuel pressure when it stalls out. A pressure gauge may be borrowed from Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys tool programs.

You can get a electric diagram and fusebox layout by registering your car on Then the print out is free. A fuelpump relay or ignition relay may cure it. Check your horn relay for an emergency relay if it is the same part number on its case as the fuel relay then test by switching relays.

90 f150 rough idle in park and neutral. drive fine.

Hi, Seems like a possible inlet air leak or to low engine revs, tickover rpm to low.outside chance engine oil to thick, try lower vicousity engine oil. this sometimes works with a rebuilt motor. Could be engine is just still tight from rebuild,1-2000 miles running in should cure this. if still low mileage.

Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2004 1.9 tdi, automatic gear: Problem1: board alarm, Glow plug system remains on at starting and contiune to flush in running. Engine starts hardly second or third time. Problem2:...

problem one is the timer control for the heaters ,also check the heaters that they are working ,oil problem ? look under the rubber boot that goes over the oil switch ,pull it back and if oil under the cover renew the oil switch,these motors do suffer from heater light flashing on and i know people have spent megabucks trying to cure it ,its a fault with dash and printed circuits ,but the heaters are not coming on i know because i have driven one with the heater circuit light coming on and i had a extended light on a long wire and the heaters are not coming on ,ignore it just renew the faulty glow plugs,as for EGR valve just pull teh vacumn pipe off the ERG valve and leave disconnect ,more hassle than its worth changing it ,you could end up with a ECU computer .Still a nice reliable motor though and economical

Shorting wiring in dash

check along bottom edge of dash cover for screws, sometimes there are a few at the top as well...generally once they are removed the dash face will pop off with moderate pulling. Once off, you can access the light switch easily. (you may need to remove the lower cover to locate dash screws)
