Some cars do same thing even when they are new. Some are4 starting to do so when they are older, wiring sistem is not so fresh, maybe some tarnish in contacts and that makes the engine cheking little bit more complicated. That is nothing bad, computer is just cheking the engine before start.

Car sometimes jerks when idle and wont accelerate when this happens


crank sensors fail on these very frequently,causing running issues. if service engine soon light is on, then your mechanic should be able to pull something from computer. sounds to me like he doesn't know what he is doing. get your self a new mechanic. that light doesn't come on just for fun. it comes on to tell you that there is a problem. if a throttle body is an issue, he should have pulled P0507 ICS system. If so, there may be an issue with the throttle body. have seen few with computer issue causing throttle body code, but those are rare. most likely throttle body, but depend on code number.

98 Chevy Lumina engine wont turn over


Its time for another car Jerry.
The oil pressure light was telling you the engine was running on less than 10 psi of oil pressure, and the knock was a rod or main bearing.
Now that the engine has been run low on oil pressure for some time, one of the rod or main bearings is junk, and so is the engine.
By the time you replace the engine, even with a used one, you could take the same money and buy another car. Even if you took the engine apart and fixed the bad bearings, the rest of the engine parts are very weak from running without oil.

Hard starting


it could be an electrical problem.. temperature sensors may tell the engine its getting too hot and wont let it start until its completely cool.. you may need the sensors changed because they are giving false readings.. but the best thing you could do is to take your car to your nearest garage soon in case it turns out to be a serious problem.

Wont start till relays stop klicking


From what you've described, you have what is called the 'no check engine light problem'. Your check engine light does not come on until those relays stop clicking and that's why it will not start. Your ecu needs to be repaired. Look on ebay for that repair service.

ENGINE MISFIRE TO THE POINT, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON. AN IT WILL START TO FLASH. AN WONT GO OUT UNTIL YOU TURN OFF THE CAR .60-65 IT WILL STOP, AS SOON AS THE CAR START TO SLOW DOWN.IT START ALL...


wait untill its dark outside, open your hood and start the engine. look around for white / blue or yellow flashes of light coming from your plug wires. most of the time the spark plug wires are worn out / degraded from heat , and you can see the small lightning flashes in the dark. if you see no light flashes ( shorts to ground) then you can have a cracked / faulty distributor , or bad spark plugs.

Clicking noise like clock in the dash.


That is the body computer making noise. It has a time out feature that turns the auto lights off after 30-90 seconds, and the interior lights are the same way. Sounds like it may be going bad.
