When you get a tune-up do they change your engine coils. As my 2000 ford expedition XLT "service eng. light" came on today & its shaking real bad. I've already had 2 eng.coil replaced last year.


Usually not. It is "recommended" to replace all (8) as a set. For some reason, when one goes, the rest aren't far behind. The main reason you only replace the bad one is cost. I would recommend buying a set of eight on eBay, you can get a set as cheap as $60.00 and change them all at one time. They are held down by a single 7mm bolt, you can get to about 6 of them with no problems, The 2 on the passenger side rear can take some finesse, but are accessible.

2000 monte carlo. .. coolant light won't turn off ... put tune up and new manifold


Is it running at the right temperature and is there coolant in the system and has it been refilled recently?
Possible reasons are the sensor is faulty, it really is running hot or there is an air lock.
Also look at the connection to the coolant sensor, check its not corroded.

Weak power,shaking engine ,engine light blinking,even in neutral


The check engine light can come on for many different reasons. There is only ONE reason for it to flash or "blinking" because excess or un-burned fuel is going into the exhaust and WILL damage the catalitic converter. The weak power and engine shaking is because not all cylinders in the engine are working. Most common causes are tune-up related. If you have a spark plug that does not work ( creates a spark to ignite the fuel which makes the engine run) this unburned fuel will go into the exhaust where the catalitic converter is located.This unburned fuel will cause excessively high temperatures in the converter and Will damage it. The most common reasons for no spark at the plugs- worn or defective spark plugs, spark plug wires or ignition coil. Hope this helps

Dodge stratus misfire, runs rough has random misfires in cylinder 1,3,and 5 and a vacuum leak, I,m not too worried about the leak unless it is related to the misfire


I WOULD REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR.MARK LOCATION OF ROTOR OR MAKE NOTE SO YOU CAN INSTALL NEW ROTOR IN CORRECT FIRING POSITION. IF THIS CAR HAS A LOT OF MILES I WOULD REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP, ROTOR.SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES.REPLACE IGNITION COIL.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS, FILL GAS TANK UP TO 3/4 TO FULL TANK OF GAS POUR CAN SEAFOAM IN FUEL TANK IT WILL FLUSH OUT THE FUEL INJECTORS WHILE ENGINE RUNNING OR DRIVING CAR. REPLACE FUEL FILTER. REASON I SAY DO A TUNE UP PROBLEM COULD BE MINOR FIX.COULD NEED TUNE UP.IF TUNE UP DONT HELP THEN YOUR PROBLEM IS DISTRIBUTOR OR THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR INSIDE OF DISTRIBUTOR.THAT WOULD SET OFF CHECK ENGINE LIGHT.BUT I WOULD SAY TUNE UP COULD FIX PROBLEM.

P0660


Po660 means "Intake Manifold Tuning Valve Control Circuit/Open".it't means as same as "Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light".The Intake Manifold Tuning Valve (IMTV) system is monitored for failure during continuous, key ON engine OFF or key ON engine running self-test. The test fails when the signal on the monitor pin is more or less than an the expected calibrated range

 

what is the reason?
1,IMTV signal circuit open, shorted to power or ground.
2, Damaged IMTV actuator.
3,Damaged PCM.

Your check engine light may come on for several different reasons. One of the most popular reasons is because the oil needs to be serviced, you have exceeded recommended mileage before service requirement, and oil filter problems.

Yes, the chip in the key is not programmed to the computer for some reason. May have to take to dealer to fix this problem. The anti theft light coming on is a bad sign, where, for security reasons, if the key doesn't match up with what the antitheft computer expects, then the car's engine shouldn't work.

2002 subaru forester. Seems to be lacking in power. Gas mileage is at 22 instead of 26-27. Check engine light does not comes on.


If you have not performed a "tune-up" service on your vehicle recently I would strongly recommend replacing your spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and an oil and filter change at the minimum. Usually if there is an actual problem with the engine the ECU will pick up on it and turn on the check engine light. That's why I am only recommending the tune up, this is the cheapest way to rule out those issues, and your car will love for it. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...
