Have you had the car checked out to see why the check engine light is on? sounds like you might need a new speed sensor

Compression low 130 on all four.will start with a lot of cranking or easy start.not smoking , or loosing water bot when running has plenty of power. 86000 miles


one idea is to tell us what engine it is petrol or diesel
130 is plenty to start a petrol engine so it must be a diesel
Even at that a diesel with good injectors will start if the start rpms from the battery are high enough
so check the injectors and battery condition

In a 2004 dodge intrepid my speed ometer stop working my check engine light went on and is reading transmission solenoid problems and now won't start?


I'd try changing the speed sensor most likely mounted on the outside of the transaxle which is wired to your motor as a fail safe causing it not to start so replace the speed sensor which also could throw a transaxle code then disconnect your battery for 30 min to reset your engine light then reconnect battery and try starting

If the Check Engine light came on, it set a code in the engine computer that will help to find out what happened. You need to scan your engine computer to get the information needed to diagnose the problem.

If this is it check you oil level if it low add some. Also if it has been a while like over 3,000 miles you would be better of to have the oil changed.
Running engine low or out of oil will cause servier engine damage so don't wait.

Oil light goes on when there's plenty of oil. It will go a day or two and then suddenly the light will go on and it will beep - off and on and off and on. Rapid succession and then nothing for a mile or...


you may have an oil pressure problem, either sludge in the engine, a clogged oil filter (he did change the filter didnt he?) or a worn oil pump, either way you risk irrepairable engine damage if you dont get the source of the problem rectified, take it to a garage who can check these things for you.

What does the 15000 mile check up on the 2008 Hyundai Elantra cover?


A complete check-up of the car which should include but not be limited to:
  1. Change the oil (when was the last time you changed it?) Change the oil filter & the air filter (again, when were they changed last?)
  2. Check the coolant and brake fluid
  3. Check the brake pads - inspect all lights including turning signals (for safetys sake)
  4. Check the air pressure in the tires (including your spare tire) Check your car's alignment, this can cause uneven wear on your tires and it will believe it or not contribute to making the trip more exhausting.




Make sure you get a good rest the night/day before you depart. - if you begin to doze off dont hesitate to stop at a rest stop. Dont fight against your body, if you are tired, stop and take a 30 minute power nap, wash your face and drink a cup of coffee before you get back on the road.
Make sure you have a bottle of water in the car and plenty of good music to listen to. - Speed wise I suggest you dont travel at more than 10mph over the speed limit, traveling a little over (up to 10 mph) is tolerated by police, but I strongly sugest going 5 mph over the limit, set the cruise control and enjoy the trip without worrying about potential fines. If you do the math, the difference in time traveled is not so great:
speed limit = 70 mph (just as an example) 1300 miles @ 70 mph = 18 hours 36 minutes 1300 miles @ 75 mph = 17 hours and 20 minutes 1300 miles @ 80 mph = 16 hours 15 minutes the difference between traveling 75 or 80 is only 1 hours and 5 minutes. Not worth risking a fine for
